Water: For Health, for Healing, for Life: You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty! by F. Batmanghelidj

You're Not Sick, You're ThirstyReviewed by Nancy Eaton

Dr. F. Batmanghelidj wrote this book to show the importance that water has on the body. Dr. Batmanghelidj was a political prisoner. While incarcerated and facing death by execution, he found that drinking two glasses of water helped relieve his peptic ulcer pain. He also helped treat other prisoners with their pain by giving them water to drink.

In this book, Dr. Batmanghelidj lists 46 reasons why your body needs water every day. Some of the reasons listed are as follows:

*Water is necessary to help prevent clogging of arteries in the heart and brain

*Water helps the immune system to combat infections and cancer cells

*Water helps with depression

*Water is necessary to help with sleep disorders

*Water can give you more energy

*Water helps aid with strong bone formation

*Water helps prevent glaucoma

Dr. Batmanghelidj also lists 9 primary properties and functions of water in the body.

This is a very enlightening book. Dr. Batmanghelidj backs up his claims with clinical and scientific research. The book is easy to read and understand. Even though we have always been told that water is good for us, we can learn much more about the effects water has on the body by reading this book. It does make sense considering the fact that the body is about 75% water. This book is well written and contains several diagrams to help with explanations.
