Chronic Unintentional Dehydration Causes Pain and Disease,

including cancer: a new medical discovery

by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.

This information had been methodically and fraudulently concealed until now!

Dear Friend:

At Last: We Can Now Cure Pain and Prevent Disease — Naturally — At No Cost:

My ground-breaking medical discovery reveals the missing natural element that prevents — even cures — the body’s painful degenerative diseases — naturally and at no cost!

I am honored and proud to inform you that my research over 18 years — in addition to my medical training and subsequent 33 years as a doctor — has exposed the simplest natural cure to a vast number of health problems.

I invite you to read this report in its entirety. Read about my discovery, and in the light of the new information, learn how to become your own healer and cure your own health problems naturally — I repeat, at no cost! Become your own diagnostician and doctor during these health care crisis times — when you need to take charge of your own health and well-being. Also, you will discover:

  • Why we in medicine were not able to permanently cure any of the painful degenerative diseases — until now. And why we have frequently made deadly mistakes that add more pain, suffering, and irreversible complications in the process!
  • Why we constantly had to experiment using different chemicals in the futile hope of finding something that would work — and nothing has worked until now! Look at the spiraling health care costs every year.
  • Why the drug companies have had to produce so many chemicals that are now proven to make 2,000,000 sicker and have killed over 100,000 annually — even when used according to their manufacturers’ recommendations! Judge for yourself how vulnerable we have become!

    The Washington Post of Wednesday, April 15, 1998 quotes the Journal of the American Medical Association:"One in 15 hospital patients in the United States can expect to suffer from a prescription or over-the-counter medicine, and about 5 percent of these will die as a result!" You should know that 1 in every 4 hospital admissions are said to be due to the side effects of routinely used prescription drugs.
  • Why all of this is about to change, and with what mind-boggling simplicity!

What you are going to find out may at first sound too good to be true! This newly uncovered "ultimate cure" is so simple you will wonder why it has not been discovered until now! But I will prove every word you are about to read. I will also tell you why I think the drug industry has concealed this information when asking trusting physicians to prescribe its medications.

What you are about to read is the ultimate truth in medicine! It is a godsend solution in these crisis times! It identifies the single most important natural need of the body — hidden until now!

What you will discover in this letter is that we in medicine are trained to use chemicals to treat pain and disease when all the body needs is water — a simple and abundantly available natural element. By reading this letter, you will realize that doctors are brainwashed into prescribing the use of toxic drugs when they should recommend the safest natural medication of them all — water!

Yes! Only water!

This is the reason why we in medicine have made so many deadly mistakes! We are routinely treating symptoms, signs and complications of drought in the body with toxic chemicals that kill more rapidly than the dehydration itself!

Who in his/her right mind would want to take toxic chemicals when all that their body needs is water — free water — natural water, the ultimate medication of choice to cure pain and prevent disease?

The commercial "sick-care" system and the drug industry do not want you to know that in most health problems you are only thirsty and not sick!

They survive and thrive if we remain ignorant of the knowledge of the different ways our bodies show we are thirsty — that we are suffering from local or regional drought. When there is shortage of water, some parts of the body are forced to go without water. In this report, you will get to know how the drought-stricken parts reflect dehydration, and how you can recognize that you are truly thirsty. You will recognize why "dry mouth" is not a sign of thirst, but why different pains are!

Understanding dehydration will empower you to become much healthier and live longer. There is more to it than just drinking water. You will need to invest a little bit of your time and concentration and begin to understand the subject. You might think: "I now know I need to drink water; that is enough." But you knew that all along.

What you did not know — and need to know — is why and what happens if you too become forgetful and complacent, like millions of others who did not drink water until they got seriously sick — with this or that disease — but actually died of dehydration.

Also remember, the body is not a container that can be replenished when empty. When dehydration has become symptom-producing, the reversal of its complications take time and understanding. This is the information you need.

The fundamentals of the information you have in your hands have been scientifically peer-reviewed and presented at different national and international medical conferences — and published in scientific journals.

You are receiving this information directly because the AMA and The National Institutes of Health — that you fund with your tax dollars and believe they are working for you — have so far refused to tell the American people they were wrong in their past assumptions about the cause of pain and disease in the human body.

Now that I am at it, and before we get into the meat of this report, let me first give you some background information, and then tell you a true story that will dispel any illusions you may have had about the drug companies being on your side!

As you will learn, I have the scientific distinction of having successfully treated with only water over 3,000 people suffering from peptic ulcer disease. My report of this event was published as the main editorial of the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology in June 1983, and also reported in the SCIENCE WATCH (Science Times) of the New York Times, Tuesday, June 21, 1983.

To me as a clinician, it became obvious that these people were suffering from a "thirst problem" and the label of "disease" is something we have concocted because we have not understood that pain and local damage can be one of the ways that persistent drought in the body shows itself.

One day, at a meeting held in the office of Professor Howard Spiro of Yale University, I made this view known. Professor Gregory Eastwood, who was then head of the department of gastroenterology at the University of Massachusetts, and who is now dean of a prestigious medical school, asked me if I could prove this view scientifically. I said I could.

I set out to scientifically prove the view that the human body can produce pain when it is thirsty:

And I did it!

Drug companies manufacture a class of chemicals that are strong antihistamines. Histamine is a brain chemical whose action the drug industry is determined to block when there is pain. Most strong pain medications are antihistamines. There are many kinds produced by different companies. One variety is called Tagamet. It is now a non-prescription drug that you can buy off the shelf.

I set out to research why histamine is the target when pain medications are used... Bingo!

I discovered that histamine is a vital chemical messenger in the brain. Histamine has a most important function not written about in medical textbooks. It is in charge of water intake and drought management in the body. It is less active when the body is fully hydrated, and becomes increasingly active when the body becomes dehydrated. This was the connection I was looking for. In short, histamine produces pain when an area in the body is suffering from drought!

I had to search through numerous scientific journals to collect this information. It took several months to put this information together. I made several copies of a thick scientific volume, and had each volume bound — in April 1985, 13 years ago! A copy was sent to each of the professors who were present at the meeting in Professor Spiro’s office.

I presented at various conferences the discovery that the human body produces pain and develops various diseases when it is suffering from drought. One such conference was the 3rd Interscience World Conference on Inflammation, held in Monte Carlo in 1989.

Deception and Human Suffering! Here is the story that should dispel any myths about drug companies being on the side of consumers! In the autumn of 1988 I was invited to speak at the Gastroenterology Society meeting held at the Armed Forces Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia — a hospital and a country that lack nothing money can buy. I was introduced to the local representative of a major drug company that manufactures one of these special pain medications. He did not know me or the topic of my presentation.

He was curious. Here I was in Saudi Arabia, from America, addressing a medical gathering.

He asked me, "Do you use our product?" I answered, "No, I do not."

He asked, " Are you using the product of our competitor?" I said, "No, I do not use the product of your competitor either."

With much surprise he asked, "Then, what do you use to treat your patients?" I told him, "I use water."

In amazement, he said, "What, water alone?" "Yes," I said, "Water alone."

Then I asked him the two questions that had bothered me for some time.

"As a researcher into the effect of histamine functions on the body physiology, your company must be aware of the primary role of histamine in water regulation and drought management of the body. Firstly, why do you insist that its actions should be blocked? And, secondly, why do you not explain this water-regulatory role of histamine in the body to the clinicians who are being asked to block its action by the use of your product?"

What do you think was his answer?

In an irritated tone of voice, he replied, "We are not here to educate the doctors. They should discover that for themselves! We are a manufacturing company interested in selling a product!" Exactly what I expected!

Fortunately, I am now able to reveal what drug companies have been for years concealing from the doctors and their patients. This new knowledge will make the practice of medicine much simpler — and friendlier to you, your health, and your financial resources. What is more, medical jargon will no longer get in your way of understanding your own body and its ways of talking to you.

And, of course, the profession of medicine will once again become an honorable calling and not just a way to get rich quickly.

Pain No More: A Much Longer Healthier Life Too Was The Message

How and where do you think I made my discovery?

Secrets of "the god sent water cure" were revealed to me in the unlikeliest place you could imagine.

In a Middle Eastern political prison.

It was 1979 when all hell broke loose and I was caught in the inferno.

After graduating from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School of London University and having the honor of being selected as the resident doctor in my own medical school, I returned to Iran, where I was born, to set up medical centers and clinics for those in need. I became very successful in this endeavor. Then the political volcano erupted.

You saw it on the television screens. Angry masses engaged in the violent overthrow of the Shah and the Iranian government.

There was a tragic side to this historic event. Almost all professional and creative people who had stayed in the country were rounded up and taken to prison to be investigated, tried, and "dealt with" as quickly as possible.

Some people were shot on the first day or two. Their "revolutionary" trials consisted of establishment of identity, pronouncement of guilt, followed by the sentence. The trial would last no more than ten minutes. Other people were given a little more time before being "processed."

I was lucky to be among the latter group. I suppose my skills as a doctor were useful to prison authorities, hence the delay in my being "processed."

Evin Prison where I was held was built for 600 persons. At one point, it was "sardine-packed" with 8,000 to 9,000 prisoners. At the height of their revolutionary fervor, when segregating different political factions, prison authorities used some cells built for six to eight people to isolate up to 90 persons. One third would lie down, one third would squat, and one third would have to stand. Every few hours, prisoners would rotate position.

The nightmare of life and death in that hell-hole haunted everyone and tested the mettle of both the strong and the weak. This is when the human body revealed to me some of its greatest secrets, secrets never understood by the medical profession.

For most of the prisoners, who ranged in age from 14 to 80, pressures of the exceptionally harsh life caused much stress and ill health. Destiny must have chosen me to be there to help some of these desperate people.

One late night, about two months into my imprisonment (I had begun with six weeks in solitary confinement), my destiny revealed itself. It spoke to me in the loudest of words and forever changed my life.

It was past 11:00 p.m. I was awakened to see an inmate in excruciating stomach pain. He could not walk by himself. Two others were helping him stay upright.

He was suffering from peptic ulcer disease and wanted some ulcer pain medication. His face dropped when I told him I had not been allowed to bring medical supplies with me to prison.

Then the revolutionary breakthrough occurred!

I gave him two glasses of water.

His pain disappeared in minutes and he could begin to stand up by himself. He beamed from ear to ear. You cannot imagine the joy of relief he experienced, even in those harsh surroundings.

"What happens if the pain comes back?" he asked.

"Drink two glasses of water every three hours," I told him.

He became pain-free and remained disease-free for the rest of his time in prison. His "water cure" in that harsh environment totally amazed me as a doctor. I knew I had witnessed a healing power to water that I had not been taught in medical school. I am sure no other such observation has ever been made in medical research.

If water could cure a painful disease condition in that stressful environment, surely it needed further research! The penny dropped there and then. I realized that my destiny as a healer had brought me to this "human stress laboratory" to teach me a new approach to medicine and to reveal many other hidden secrets about the human body. I opened my eyes. Instinctively, I realized why I had come to prison!

I stopped thinking about myself and started to think about doing medical research in the prison. I began to identify the health problems that "blossomed" due to the stress of prison. By far the largest number involved ulcer pains. I treated those who came to me with what proved to be the best "natural elixir" — water. I found water could treat and cure more diseases than any medication I knew about.

It Could Even Cure Someone Who Was Literally Dying of Pain.

It was again past 11:00 p.m. I was on my way to a sick inmate when I heard a piercing groan from one of the cells at the end of the corridor. I followed the sound and found a young man curled up on the floor of his cell. He seemed to be totally detached, giving out deep, piercing groans.

"What is wrong?" I asked. He did not react. I had to shake him several times before he could reply.

"My... ulcer... is killing me."

"What have you done for the pain?" I asked. He told me: "Since one o'clock... when it started... I have taken three Tagamets... and one full bottle of antacid. But... not only has the pain not stopped... it has got worse since then." (At that time, prisoners were able to get medications from the prison hospital.)

By now, I had a much clearer understanding of peptic ulcer pain. What I did not realize until then was the severity it could reach when not even strong medications could stop it.

After examining his abdomen for possible complications, I gave him two glasses of tap water. Just over one pint.

I left him to visit another sick inmate. Ten minutes later I returned.

Groans of pain no longer filled the corridor.

"How do you feel?" I asked.

"Much better," he replied. "But I still have some pain."

I gave him a third glass of water.

And his pain stopped completely within four minutes.

This man had been semi-conscious, on the verge of death. He had taken a huge amount of ulcer medication — with no result. And now, after drinking only 3 glasses of tap water, he became pain-free, sitting up and socializing with his friends. What a humbling discovery! And I thought I had received the best medical education in the world!

During the years of my captivity, I cured over 3,000 ulcer cases with only water in the Evin Prison — "my God-given stress laboratory."

All thanks to water. Plain, simple, cost-free medicine for everyone. Water that we all take for granted! Water that the medical profession has dismissed as unworthy of research!

Since my eyes were opened to water as a natural medication, I have seen it heal and alleviate hundreds of traditionally incurable sicknesses and chronic pains.

I have seen water completely reverse conditions such as: Asthma. Angina. Hypertension. Migraine headaches. Arthritis pain. Back pain. Colitis pain and chronic constipation. Heartburn and hiatal hernia. Depression. Chronic fatigue syndrome. High cholesterol. Morning sickness. Overweight problems. Even heart problems needing bypass surgery.

All these disease conditions responded simply and permanently to water. Ordinary water. Any water you feel comfortable to drink. Clean tap water is as good as any.

In order to comprehend why water cured so many health problems, it’s necessary to understand what happens when there is not enough water in the body.

Why do you think water cured so many health problems?

Here is the simple beauty of it — because every single one of these conditions occurs when there is not enough water in the body. They are STATES OF LOCAL OR REGIONAL DEHYDRATION. This was the missing information needed to understand the basic cause of diseases of the body.

No wonder the drug companies do not want doctors to discover the direct relationship of local drought and body pains.

You can now recognize the major pains and diseases of the body as symbolic of water need in the area where pain is registered.

In spite of what doctors are taught in medical schools, the first-choice treatment for these painful conditions is not some brand-name medication, but WATER.

The patients I treated did not need medications or special diets or expensive surgery. They only needed the single most important substance missing from their bodies — even when very stressed in their life-threatening situation.

Water cured them because stress had made them more dehydrated, and lack of water in different parts of their bodies had caused their problems. In their dehydrated state, the cells were not functioning normally and had produced pain and disease.

To you, this may sound incredible the first time you hear it. The medical establishment has told you that, if you have a disease, the best that can be offered is regular — life-long — treatment with no guarantee of being cured.

But, once you start understanding how the human body works, the wonderful simplicity of water as a free and permanently available choice medication for so many health problems begins to make sense.

Every function inside the body is regulated by and depends on water.

Water must be available to carry vital elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body. Without sufficient water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of the body will not receive the vital elements that water supplies.

Water is also needed to carry toxic waste away from the cells. In fact, there are at least 50 reasons why the body needs sufficient water on a regular, everyday basis.

Without sufficient water to constantly wet all parts, your body's drought-management system kicks into action. The histamine-directed chemical messenger systems are activated to arrange a new, lower quota of water for the drought-stricken areas. When histamine and its subordinate "drought managers" come across pain-sensing nerves, they cause pain. This is what I discovered in my research that I mentioned earlier.

This is why dehydration produces pain as its first alarm signal. If the dehydration persists and is not corrected naturally with water, it becomes symptom-producing and, in time, develops into a disease condition. This is why people who take antacids to silence their bodies’ thirst pain become more vulnerable and eventually develop other serious complications of dehydration.

Medical professionals have been educated to treat pain and disease with medications. They do not understand the problems associated with dehydration. Nowhere in their training as doctors are they taught what happens if one does not drink an adequate amount of water every day.

During their training to become doctors, medical students receive about six hours of instruction on nutrition and a few hundred hours on drugs. This is when doctors are brain-washed by the chemical industry’s "doctored" information.

It is after 18 years of full-time and focused research that I have acquired a clear understanding of dehydration as the primary cause of pain and disease. I was never taught about it in the medical school.

Secondly, strong pressures from the "sick-care" industry — which depends on the perpetuation of disease to make money — will not permit serious investigation of simple procedures that can CURE disease.

This is how people get sicker and the health-care industry gets richer. Their medications don't work, and that is why they have to search constantly for "new brand names" to keep patients believing something is being done for them.

They will never succeed in curing your health problems with medications - because you are only dehydrated. Even if you are drinking lots of beverages, the odds are that you are still dehydrated. Certain fluids actually dehydrate the body further. That is how their manufacturers achieve high-volume sales. Most beverages create unquenchable thirst in the body — some kids drink as much as 14 sodas a day, and some have been known to consume 25 sodas a day. Only water hydrates the body and cures diseases of dehydration!

I aim to educate you about dehydration and its outward signs: to save you from further health problems caused by the drugs that are used to silence the calls of the body for water.
