"You're not sick; you're thirsty. Don't treat thirst with medication." Dr. F. Batmanghelidj
"Our life, our planet. Over 70% of the earth's surface is water. However, most of it—98%--is salt water. Only 2% of the earth's H20 is fresh water that we can drink, and of this, almost all is trapped in frozen glaciers."
You are not just what you eat; you are what you drink. This is why water is so important to your health. Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink.
"I did not invent water. I only discovered its importance to health and wellbeing. As a doctor, I ask you to give water a try."
"Understanding dehydration will empower you to become much healthier and you will be able to become your own healer."
"The human body is composed of 25 percent solid matter and 75 percent water. Brian tissue is 85 percent water. When we starve body cells of water, they start to complain - and set up may adverse reactions."
"Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirty is wrong. Pain in the body is a crisis call of the body for water. Thirst should be prevented. When body does not receive enough water and you have pain that is a sign of dehydration."
"In advanced societies, thinking that tea, coffee, alcohol and manufactured beverages are desirable substitute for the purely natural water needs of the daily 'stressed' body is an elementary but catastrophic mistake. While these beverages do contain water, they also contain dehydrating agents. They get rid of the water they dissolved in plus some more water from the reserves in the body."
"Soda and caffeine-containing beverages don't replace water needs of the body. Caffeine is a dehydrate substance. It does not allow the water to stay in the body long enough. Within an hour you will urinate more than the cup of beverage that you drank. When children are give fruit juice and soda to the exclusion of water, it only compounds the dehydration problem. At the same time, a cultivated preference for the taste of sodas will automatically reduce the free urge to drink water when sodas are available."
"Medical professionals of today do not understand the vital roles of water in the human body. Medications are palliatives. They are not designed to cure the degenerative disease of the human body."
"The current practice of clinical medicine is based on the application of pharmacological chemistry to the human body. At the medical school, more than six hundred teaching hours are allocated to the use of pharmaceutical products. Only a few hours are allocated to instructions on diet and nutrition."
