By F. Batmanghelidj

It is beginning to be accepted that many illnesses which today plague countless millions of people worldwide spring from a simple, unrecognized cause - we don't drink enough water. This is the medical discovery that Iranian-born Dr Batmanghelidj outlines in this book.


As a result of extensive research into the role of water in the body, the author, a medical doctor, believes that he has found chronic dehydration to be the cause of many conditions including asthma, allergies, arthritis, angina, migraine headaches, hypertension, raised cholesterol, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, depression, and diabetes in the elderly.

According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, the body possesses many different thirst signals. A dry mouth is not a reliable indicator of your body's water needs. He describes a variety of more reliable ones, and helps you learn to understand when your body is calling for water. In this way, he claims you can prevent, treat, and cure a variety of conditions of ill health, at no cost, with what he calls nature's miracle medicine: Water. The author explains how much water one needs to drink a day to stay healthy, and why tea, coffee, and sodas are not good substitutes for water.

When Dr. Batmanghelidj thinks of a glass of water, he doesn't think of it as half full or half empty. He thinks of it as brimming over with the essential fluid of life. He thinks of it as the solvent of our ills and the deliverer of ripe old age. He thinks of it as the wave of the future.


This book by a highly respected M.D. explodes a medical atom bomb--An entirely new paradigm for the cause and prevention of many degenerative diseases! You owe it to yourself to read this incredible book!

The Connection Newspaper

The average American is woefully uninformed about water. Most people think they drink enough water, but they don't. Dr. Batmanghelidj's book will create a tide of opinion about the wonders of water.

Townsend Letter for Doctors

How like 'monkey mind' to bounce about, tying itself in knots with complex solutions while ignoring the profound significance of the simple! Circumstance helped Dr. Batmanghelidj perceive the elegant significance of one factor we too often overlook: water.

Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology

It is claimed that fish probably have no awareness of the presence of water; this book shows we may have done little better. Mostly we have treated symptoms, and often wrongly at that, but masterpieces come into being to produce paradigm shifts. If we learn this one, we may arrest the course of our patients in their all-too-rapid going the way of all flesh.

The following excerpt, from Chapter 2 of Your Body's Many Cries for Water, describes the vital role water plays in the healthy functioning of the human body.

The new scientific truth about the human body that will empower people to become practitioners of preventive medicine for themselves is as follows: It is the solvent the water content that regulates the activity of all the solutes (solids) that are dissolved in it. Every function of the body is monitored and pegged to the efficient flow of water. "Water distribution" is the only way of making sure that not only an adequate amount of water, but also its transported elements (hormones, chemical messengers and nutrients) reach the vital organs. In turn, every organ that produces a substance to be made available to the rest of the body will release it into the "flowing water." Adequate water intake, therefore, achieves paramount importance.

This new paradigm permits an incorporation of the "fourth dimension of time" into scientific research. It will facilitate an understanding of the damaging effect of an establishing dehydration that persists for some time. It will make it possible to forecast the physiological events that will lead to disease states in later years, including what at present appear to be genetic disorders. It will transform the present "shot-in-the-dark, symptom-treating" approach to the practice of medicine into a scientifically accurate medical art; it will make preventive forecasting possible. It will establish excellent health, and reduce health care costs to individuals and to any society that fosters its spread.

Since water shortage in different areas of the body will manifest varying symptoms, signals, and complications now labeled as diseases, people may think that water cannot be offered as a natural solution. Water curing so many diseases? No way!

Thinking thus, they shut their mind to the new possibility of preventing,even curing, so many "diseases" that are dehydration-produced. It does not occur to them that the only remedy for conditions that occur when the body begins to get dehydrated is water and nothing else. A number of sample testimonials are published in the book to open the eyes of skeptics to the fact that the greatest health discovery of all time is that water is a natural medication for a variety of health conditions.

"It started with a patient suffering unbearable ulcer pain one late night. The Doctor treated him with 500 cubic centimeter of water. His pain became less severe and then disappeared completely. The physician was so impressed that he prescribed two glasses of water six times a day and achieved a "clinical" cure of the ulcer attack."

"The water principle has a convincing logic but turns much of current medical practice on its head. Does it work? You only have to turn on the tap to find out."

Laurence A. Malone, M.D., Ph.D., Dean for Academic Affairs, The Learning Center for College Sciences, Ohio

"Dr. Batman's books are full of common sense and truthful medical advice. His suggested treatment of diseases goes to the roots, the cause of it and anyone who is fortunate enough to read them won't be disappointed with their purchase."

Paul Harvey

"One man's solution to soaring health costs: water."

Dick Gregory

"Thanks to Dr. Batmanghelidj. I put your book next to the Bible and I read them both."

The European Newspaper, London

The water principle has a convincing logic that turns much of current medicine on its head.

About the Author

Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj was born in Iran in 1931. He attended school in Scotland, and received his medical training at London University's St. Mary's Hospital Medical School. Upon completion of his studies, he had the privilege of being selected as a house doctor in his own medical school. Dr. Batmanghelidj practiced medicine in England before returning to Iran where he helped develop hospitals and health centers.

When the revolutions broke out in 1979, Dr. Batmanghelidj, as a member of a prominent family, was thrown in jail. While serving as a political prisoner in Evin prison, he discovered the healing power of water.

One night, Dr. Batmanghelidj had to treat a fellow prisoner who was suffering severe peptic ulcer pain. With no conventional medication at his disposal, Dr. Batmanghelidj gave the man, who was crippled with pain, two glasses of water. Within eight minutes, his pain disappeared. He was instructed to drink two glasses of water every three hours, and he became absolutely pain-free for the four remaining months he was in prison. Without using any medication, he was cured.

During the 31 months of his imprisonment, Dr. Batmanghelidj treated more than 3,000 peptic ulcer sufferers with water alone. He conducted extensive research during his prison stay into the medicinal effects of water, and discovered water could prevent, relieve and cure many painful degenerative diseases. He found Evin prison an "ideal stress laboratory," and chose to stay an extra four months in prison to complete his research into the relationship of dehydration, stress, and disease, despite being offered an early release. A report of his findings was smuggled out of Iran and became the editorial article in the June 1983 issue of the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, and was reported on by the New York Times Science section.

After his release from prison in 1982, Dr. Batmanghelidj escaped from Iran and came to America, where he continues his research into the role of water in the human body and the damaging effects of dehydration on human health. His studies show that, if we maintain a healthy lifestyle of drinking plenty of water on a regular basis, we will be able to enjoy good health and avoid diseases and painful conditions that require pharmaceutical drugs and expensive medical procedures.

Dr. Batmanghelidj now dedicates his time promoting public awareness of the healing power of water. His book Your Body's Many Cries for Water, has helped hundreds of thousands of people live happier, healthier, lives.
