Day 34: Water 2: Your Body’s Many Cries for Water; Kidneys

Water by F. Batmanghelidj, MD; Human Anatomy: Kidneys; Salt Information

Welcome to Day 34!

This is the second day in our three-day series on water.

Dr. Batman (as he is called) has written an excellent book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, outlining the value of water in the healing of many of his patients and students–backed by the reasons behind the recoveries.

This book is part of the Masters in Vegan/Live Food Nutrition with Gabriel Cousens, M.D. It is not intended, as part of the course you are taking now, to be read cover-to-cover. Scroll down to the table of contents and read the available selections that apply to your situation, or that of your loved ones.

As he explains in great detail in his many books, most common diseases (for which there are a variety of names such as asthma, arthritis, hypertension and so on) are really just names given to patterns of symptoms created by the body’s drought management system. When the human body begins to get dehydrated, it initiates a drought management system that seeks to conserve water. The symptoms characterized by this drought management effort are given disease names by conventional medicine and then treated with toxic prescription drugs.

Here’s a straightforward example of what I’m talking about: the brain must be kept hydrated at all times. So the body, when it is lacking water, will do everything possible to keep supplying adequate water to the brain. This involves limiting the loss of water in other areas of the body. As Dr. B points out, simply breathing causes the loss of a significant quantity of water each and every day, depending on the climate in which you live and your level of physical exercise.

If you are experiencing chronic dehydration from not drinking enough water, or from drinking water-depleting drinks such as coffee, beer or beverages containing sugar, your body tries to prevent respiratory water loss by producing histamines which close off the capillaries in your lungs. Through the constriction of these capillaries, water loss is reduced, but of course breathing is made far more difficult. It’s important to understand that the body is doing this on purpose. The body is producing histamines as a strategy, not as a disease or something gone awry. The body wants to constrict the capillaries in your lungs because it is trying to save your brain.

What is conventional medicine’s answer to this production of histamines by the body? Well, of course, it is the prescription of antihistamines, or drugs that are designed to counteract the histamines produced on purpose by the body in order to conserve water. These antihistamines then open up the capillaries in the lungs, making breathing seem easier. As you can see here, then, the conventional medicine approach treats nothing but the symptoms, and in doing so it counteracts the body’s own intentions and strategies in trying to conserve water. What patients with asthma really need is lots of water on a regular basis, not histamine prescription drugs.

As Dr. B explains in his books, the same sort of destructive cycle of medical treatment is taking place with other diseases as well — most notably hypertension and arthritis. Many of the prescription drugs profitably marketed to doctors and patients today are, in effect, various forms of histamines which counteract the body’s efforts to conserve water.

What we need to be doing as a population, of course, is simply drinking more water. But there’s more to it than just that — we also need to stop drinking beverages that deplete our water supplies. Believe it or not, most beverages that are consumed by American consumers today actually don’t offer hydration; drinking soft drinks results in a loss of water in your body, not a gain in water. Once you drink one can of a soft drink beverage, you feel like you still need more, and thus the body is trapped in a never-ending cycle of craving for hydration that simply cannot be met by consuming soft drinks. What your body truly craves is water.

Salt

There has been a debate on this food for the last 150 years, at least. Salt of the Earth, Gandhi’s Salt March, Celtic Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt… Is it healthy for you?

In today’s file on Salt you can read about the difference between processed and unprocessed salt, why people like Gabriel Cousens MD, David Browstein MD, David Wolfe, and David Rainoshek say salt is essential; take a look at Salt in mythology, and read dissenting opinions.

Be sure to check out the David Wolfe video at right on Salt, as well.

Kidneys

Don’t forget your kids! Most people’s kidneys serve them well their whole life… but some basic Life Practices can ensure that they function optimally for their own sake, and that of the health of your whole body/mind. Enjoy the brief introduction to your kidneys – and know that all that Green Vegetable Juice is doing them a huge favor… particularly the celery and cucumber juices!

Your kidneys are also benefiting from a reduced average blood sugar during your Juice Feast, provided you are drinking 3 or more quarts of Green Vegetable Juice each day. High blood sugar (such as in diabetes) scars the kidneys, making it more difficult for them to cleanse your blood. Lowering your blood sugar and providing anti-inflammatory and scar-tissue-healing juices, MSM, and even proteolytic enzymes such as Vitalzym (or serrapeptase) provide incredible healing benefits to your kidneys!

For Tomorrow

Tomorrow we will look at another fascinating aspect of water: it’s ability to store information, and the ramifications of that information storage for our health – physical, mental, and even spiritual.

Day 34: Introduction with David and Katrina Rainoshek

Theme Music: “Riders on the Storm” by The Doors

Start Your Day with Water. It’s amazing how almost nobody does this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach Start your morning with at least 1 litre of spring water, than once you've finished drinking wait at least 30 minutes before drinking / eating anything. Make this an everyday part of your routine. David and Katrina: YES! We have been saying this for years. Nice to see it in Technicolor in a documentary featuring David Wolfe.

SALT: Dr. Joseph Mercola discusses the value and importance of salt.

sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) introduction

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FILES ON THE JUICE FEASTING PROGRAM. Understanding the health applications and implications of sodium bicarbonate (such as Arm and Hammer Baking Soda) cannot be underestimated in its importance for you and everyone you know. It significantly addresses the kidneys, bladder, and urinary tract – particularly issues arising from overacidity and candida yeast fungal infections of the kidneys, bladder, and urinary tract.

Please, please familiarize yourself with this file and topic if you have not done so already. This information is from the excellent work done by Drs. Tullio Simoncini and Mark Sircus. I highly recommend acquiring Dr. Mark Sircus’ book, Sodium Bicarbonate: Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment. Enjoy the file. This will benefit you and your friends and loved ones for the rest of your life.

Salt has been around for billions of years. Yet there is a debate in medical and health conscious communities about whether salt is, or can be, good for you or not. And if so, what kind of salt, and what are its uses? This file is the result of years of research, listening to mentors, and personal practice with salt. Includes perspectives for and against salt, with a special comment by myself, David Rainoshek, MA. A Must-Read on this contentious topic.


Healing Power Cover.png

the healing power of water

by Mike Adams

Physicians rarely promote the curative properties of H2O, but Dr. Batmanghelidj, M.D. has studied water’s effect on the human body and has found it to be one of the best pain relievers and preventative therapies in existence. I was one of the last people to interview the late Dr. Batmanghelidj, and I listened in awe as he shared his research and stories about “The Healing Power of Water.”

In a fascinating one-hour phone conversation, Dr. B. shares:

+ Which common ailments and “diseases” are actually caused by dehydration
+ Why many doctors use water-regulating antihistamines to alleviate pain
+ How Dr. Batmanghelidj unintentionally discovered water’s healing properties
+ Why most people are chronically dehydrated and suffer from symptoms of dehydration that are labeled “diseases”
+ Which ingredients in soft drinks deplete the body’s water reserves
+ Why thirst is not a reliable indicator of dehydration
+ Why the body produces cholesterol and how water keeps it in balance
+ Why Dr. Batmanghelidj believes the public is being mislead about AIDS
+ How dehydration impairs mental functioning
+ Why some organizations want to withhold alternative health information from the public
+ How lack of water causes depression
+ Why popular beverages are no substitute for water
+ How dehydration causes the vascular system to constrict, leading to hypertension
+ How to recognize signs that your body is starting to dehydrate
+ Why restaurants push you to drink disease-promoting soft drinks
+ Why and how water effectively treats pain and inflammation

Mainstream Media Attacks Water; Recommends People Drink Soda Instead! by Mike Adams

As proof that mainstream health information continutes to become increasingly detached from reality, the mainstream media (MSM) has launched a new wave of misinformation designed to discredit the health benefits of drinking water! Just today, for example, Fox News ran a story entitled, Skip the Water, Have a Soda Instead.

Other news organizations, such as the Chicago Tribune also jumped on the bandwagon, declaring that drinking eight glasses of water a day has no health benefits whatsoever.

This latest wave of attempts to discredit water comes from — no surprise — the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. Nephrology means “the study of kidneys,” for all the non-medical folks reading this, and the aforementioned journal caters to medical professionals who earn their living from kidney problems caused by dehydration!

Healing with water: the work of “water cure” pioneer Dr. Batmanghelidj by Mike Adams

Those of you who are familiar with the work of the late Dr B. may own his book called “The Water Cure,” or “Water for health, for Healing, for Life: You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty.” He’s also the author of “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water.” Essentially, Dr. B is the foremost authority on the relationship between the consumption of water and states of health or disease in the human body.

As he explains in great detail in his many books, most common diseases (for which there are a variety of names such as asthma, arthritis, hypertension and so on) are really just names given to patterns of symptoms created by the body’s drought management system. When the human body begins to get dehydrated, it initiates a drought management system that seeks to conserve water. The symptoms characterized by this drought management effort are given disease names by conventional medicine and then treated with toxic prescription drugs.


Great Books

By Mark Kurlansky

Mark Kurlansky, the bestselling author of Cod and The Basque History of the World, here turns his attention to a common household item with a long and intriguing history: salt. The only rock we eat, salt has shaped civilization from the very beginning, and its story is a glittering, often surprising part of the history of humankind.

A substance so valuable it served as currency, salt has influenced the establishment of trade routes and cities, provoked and financed wars, secured empires, and inspired revolutions. Populated by colorful characters and filled with an unending series of fascinating details, Kurlansky’s kaleidoscopic history is a supremely entertaining, multi-layered masterpiece.
