books on hydration


Being properly hydrated is one of the best ways to begin treatment for fibromyalgia and chronic disease in general. There are three ways to become hydrated: firstly make sure you are drinking enough liquids, secondly mineralize your body with unrefined salts, and thirdly understand that hydration is not only a physical process but a mental one as well.  

I love reading and have a huge library on homeopathy and health. All the books that I review on this site I've read, and have found practically useful as a practicing homeopath. Here is my list of the most handy books on drinking water and hydration.

your body's many cries for water

your body’s many cries for water

Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj


When the Iranian Revolution broke out in 1979 Dr. Batmanghelidj was arrested and sent to prison as a political prisoner. One night he was asked to treat a fellow prisoner with crippling peptic ulcer pain. Not having any medicine at his disposal, all he could do was give the prisoner some water to drink. Within a few minutes the pain disappeared. The prisoner was instructed to drink two glasses of water every three hours and became absolutely pain free for his remaining time in prison. 


"That woke me up, because in medical school I’d never heard that water could cure pain, that kind of pain, in fact.” 


Dr. Batmanghelidj (affectionately known as Dr. Batman) went on to treat over 3,000 fellow prisoners suffering from severe pain. After his release from prison in 1982, he continued his research on the effects of chronic dehydration on the human body. In this book he explains the physiology of dehydration and how this causes specific illnesses such as arthritis, headaches, back pain, weight gain, asthma, allergies, depression, and more.
