This past April I discovered the book Your Body's Many Cries For Water, a truly fascinating book written by a medical doctor living in impossible conditions. Being the skeptic that I am, I did my water research and what I found was evidence Dr.Batmanghelidj, the author of the above book was on to something.
Chronic Dehydration? It's when the body is in constant short supply of water. Most people don't drink the minimum requirement of eight 8 ounce glasses of water per day instead they opt to drink juices, tea, and coffee, none of which satisfies the body's thirst for water. The body needs pure water to perform bodily functions including to think clearly. When there's a shortage of water the body syphens if from other areas of the body, the intestines being a good example leaving constipation in its wake.
Unfortunately, people can exist in chronic dehydration without ever realizing their body's dire condition. It's so commonplace now to have illnesses we've forgotten the most basic truth about our bodies, we can go longer without food than water. This simple fact demostrates how important water is to the body. Eating well is great but without water all is defeated.
The body's thirst symptoms can be exhibited as asthma, high blood pressure, arthritis, back pains, kidney problems, cancer, MS, and the list goes on and on. You would think the medical profession would stress patients drink water as a preventative measure against disease and illness but they don't, not necessarily out of negligence, but due to them not being trained to see water as nothing more than bodily transport of nutrients.
There are many people who can vouch for the validity of Dr.Batmanghelidj claims of drinking more water to reverse so-called incurable conditions. Yes, there are even people who are claiming weightloss just by drinking the correct amount of water for their bodies. Weight Loss?
Yes and here's the reason, water suppresses the appetite naturally and it also helps the body metabolize stored fat. Recent studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, and the increase of water will do the opposite and reduce fat deposits. When the kidneys cannot function properly due to not enough water, it relies on the liver to pick up the slack. Is there a consequence when the liver has to help the kidneys do their job?
One of the liver's primary functions is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body but as long as it's doing the kidneys work it can't do it's job of burning fat full-time, the end result is less fat metabolized. Less metabolized fat means more fat remaining stored within the body, in other words, weight gain. Drinking the correct amount of water daily is the best thing anyone can do for themselves to lose unwanted body weight, give the body what it needs and it will give you what you need, A STRONG HEALTHY BODY.

The Water Recipe
Drink 1/2 your body weight of water in ounces, daily. Example: 180 lb = 90 oz. of water daily. Divide that into 8 or 10 oz. glasses and that's how many glasses you will need to drink, daily. Use 1/4 tsp. of sea salt for every quart of water you drink. Use salt liberally with food. As long as you drink the water, you can use the salt. Avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. These are diuretics and will dehydrate you. Every 6 oz. of caffeine or alcohol requires an additional 10 to 12 oz. of water to re-hydrate you.
