We love water.
Yet we are suffering from water dehydration, sick and dying for lack
of pure quality water
Nearly seventy percent of the earth’s surface
is covered with water. And, whether it is by coincidence or divine, our human
bodies are also nearly seventy percent water and the salinity of our extra
cellular fluids is also approximately that of ocean water.

The “health-care system” has thrived on
treating dehydration, its manifestation, and adaptive processes with chemicals
and procedures. This is devastating our society and our people. It has caused
unnecessary human suffering, on top of burdening people with ever escalating
It is a little known fact, but insufficient
water consumption is actually a risk factor for getting colon, breast, and
urinary tract cancers such as cancers of the kidneys, bladder prostate, and
testicles. When the body is well hydrated, blood circulation is expanded and
immune system cells can reach the cancerous tissues in greater numbers.
Statistical studies done by Dr. Susan M.
Kleiner, indicate that cancer victims drink precious little of the wet stuff.
The theory is that water flushes toxins from the body before they can do their
damage or be reabsorbed.
Enlightened researchers and writers are now
trying to intervene and inform the public about chronic dehydration being the
primary cause of most of their health problems.
Steve Meyerowitz, Water – The Ultimate Cure,
has eloquently engaged in bringing this good news to his readers. Fortunately,
we are now in a position to prevent, and even cure and eradicate, many of the
health problems at no cost.
All we have to do is to inform people with
health problems that they should try water and salt as natural medications since
they may not be sick. They may only be manifesting symptoms and signs of thirst
and regional drought in the body.
In his article, “Pain: a Need for paradigm
change,” published in the Journal of anticancer Research, Sept.-Oct. 1987
explains that unintentional dehydration is the primary cause of cancer formation
in the body.
Significant numbers of Americans know little
about dehydration. Twenty percent are unaware that coffee and beer are
dehydrating. Caffeinate soft drinks are a major offender. Carbonated soft
drinks account for more that 27 percent of beverage consumption in the United
States. The average adult American drinks 54.5 gallons of soft drinks per year.
I knew very well that not only was I not drinking enough water
daily. Furthermore I was drink huge amounts of coffee and soda which dehydrates
the body even further.
I knew that for every 4 cups of coffee I drank I needed to drink
an additional glass of water. Yes, I said additional to the 8-12 glasses of
Is it any surprise that I was diagnosed with cancer – two
locations, two types on top of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetic,
arthristis and a multitude of aches and pains?
What is dehydration? Most people think
dehydration is something you get from heat exhaustion. This is when your output
of water exceeds your intake. This and dry mouth are the extreme cases.
Hidden dehydration is when there is not an
adequate amount of water reaching the cells. This mild dehydration can lead to
dizziness, lethargy, headache, muscle cramps, loss of appetite, depression and
We lose water every day through urine, skin
perspiration, feces, and lungs. But we also increase our excretion of water by
drinking alcohol, beer coffee, tea, caffeinated cola drinks, and taking some
Dehydration impacts four primary functions of
the body that ultimately render it weaker and susceptible to diseases and
cancers. Dehydration renders the immune system ineffective and unresponsive.
It causes the destruction of some primary
amino acids as antioxidants when toxic waste builds up in the body. Some of
these amino acids are involved in the enzyme systems that recognizes and repair
the genetic damage and incorrect DNA transcriptions.
The loss of essential amino acids and elements
force the cells in a drought stricken area to lose sophistication of function
and become primitive and selfish, with self-replicating properties. Dehydration
will also cause low-oxygen and high acidity environments that are more suited
for cancer cell development than the original normal tissues.
Dehydration also impacts the molecular
metabolism of the body. To treat an already occurring disease, such as cancer,
you also need to know what other elements should be added to your diet to
reverse the disease process.
And here is something else to ponder: The
water we drink today is the same water that our ancient ancestors drank. It is
the same water that Moses lifted to his lips; that was served to Cleopatra, and
to George Washington.
The way our ecosystem works, the water on the
planet continuously recycles. When sea water evaporates, it leaves the salts
behind. As the rising water cools, it condenses to form water droplets and
clouds which, at the right temperature, drop back to earth (natural
distillation). The same molecules of water are merely exchanged between sea and
sky and soil and have been doing so since the beginning of the earth.
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, Your Body’s Many Cries
for Water, affixes the blame for a host of modern ailments on the lack of proper
hydration. In his theory, water and salt follow oxygen as the most crucial
ingredients for life. Proper hydration can reverse and improve a wide range of
Doctors are well aware that dehydration,
second only to oxygen deprivation, robs life fastest. Minor dehydration – not
enough to kill – is both the result and the hidden cause of many illnesses. The
inverse is also true.
Good hydration is at the foundation of good health. Drink up now,
because the price for administering an intravenous saline water solution in the
hospital is expensive
