Your Body’s Many Cries For Water

Dr. F. Batmanghelidj’, M.D., wrote one of the most ground breaking and thought provoking books on the importance of water in our daily diet. Dr.Batmanghelidj’ believed that most illness is caused by dehydration.

Dr. F. Batmanghelidj’ was an internationally known researcher, author, and lecturer. He was born and raised in Iran. During the Iranian revolution in 1979 Dr. Batmanghelidj’ was held as a politcal prison for almost three years. It was during his incarceration that he learned the importance that water plays in our daily lives.

According to Dr. B., the quench for thirst can already be a sign of slight dehydration. Also, Dr. B. is quick to point out that sodas (aka pop, colas, and soft drinks), coffee, tea, and alcohol are all very dehdrating to the body.

A simple rule for daily water intake is to consume half your body weight in ounces of water on a daily basis. This would mean that if you weigh 150 pounds then your daily goal is to drink 75 ounces (a little over two liters) of water. This will definitely help keep your body well hydrated.

If we were to look at the importance of water from a philosophical view then we are reminded of how the late Bruce Lee encouraged us, “To Be Like Water.”

I hope that you enjoy the video.

    I always knew water was important, but I have heard that soda had similar effects in regard to hydration, not the adverse.

    Can you offer any insight?

    Hi Gary,

    Dr. BatMan ( as we call him affectionately – and because his last name is kind of difficult to pronounce ) was SO AHEAD of his time. He stood by his beliefs and enlightened us to just how necessary water was to improve health. Thank you for acknowledging this great man – though he may have passed, his legacy will live on.

  13. This is an interesting theory. Research does suggest that many people suffer from dehydration and do not realize it. This is particularlly the case for older people.
