Core Hydration

"Water remains the best choice for hydration."
~Oswaldo Koch

Water helps nearly every part of the human body function efficiently. Considering that our bodies are almost two-thirds water, it is important to understand water's role in healthy lifestyles. The following are just some of the things water does in the body:

  • Brain is 75% water / Moderate dehydration can cause headaches and dizziness

  • Water is required for breathing

  • Regulates body temperature

  • Carries nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body

  • Blood is 92% water

  • Moistens oxygen for breathing

  • Protects and cushions vital organs

  • Helps to convert food into energy

  • Helps body absorb nutrients

  • Removes waste

  • Bones are 22% water

  • Muscles are 75% water

  • Cushions joints

How much water do I need?

Muscle tissue is comprised of over 70% water, and it serves an important role in all cellular activity, so we would say it's really important! A higher protein intake, so popular with today's low-carb/high protein diets, requires more water to help clear your body of waste products such as ammonia and urea. Sweating from intense workouts also causes you to dehydrate and lose more water.

How To Determine Your Water Needs:

To stay adequately hydrated, multiply your bodyweight in pounds by 0.55-that's about how much water you should drink in ounces everyday. For example, a 200 lb. person needs about 110 ounces of water daily. This is about 10 to 12 glasses of water depending on the size of the glass.

How Hydrated Am I?

Advances in modern technology provide us a clear picture of body hydration levels.
The Digiweigh Infrared Body Fat & Body Water Scale makes it possible to read body water as a percentage of overall weight. Total body water (TBW) is a measurement of intracellular and extracellular fluids in all compartments of the body.

Optimal Hydration Levels

Women - 55%-60%

Men - 60%-65%

Water Filtration (PiMag Aqua Pour)

Like electricity or gravity, there is power in water if you learn how to use it. Using an ingenious gravity flow system, the PiMag Aqua Pour (produced by Nikken) can provide you with "Living Water" - the cleanest alkaline water you can ever drink. It's a portable waterworks - producing PiMag water without electricity or plumbing.

The PiMag Aqua Pour features several stages of filtration. Water flows through a carbon medium, ion exchange resin and zeolite. Pi (Living) ceramics are in the filter, to impart "the water of life." Final stage filtration consists of a bed of mineral stones, like the stones that provide natural filtering and minerals in streams and rivers. Nikken Magnetic Technology completes the process, as the water passes through a charged field surrounding the Aqua Pour tap.

This system uses the powerful principles of Mother Nature which totally transforms your tap water making it alive and energized. The three most important benefits of "Living Water" are:
    1. Your water becomes instantly absorbed by your body without the need for your body to "digest" it first and then it tastes great too and feels even better.
    2. "Living Water" increases the amount of dissolved oxygen and minerals in your water towards its natural level.
    3. "Living Water" eliminates and prevents slimy bacteria build-up.

Research Study About Water & Salt

IMPORTANT: The following information had been methodically and fraudulently concealed until now!

"It Is Chronic Unintentional Dehydration That Causes Pain and Disease, Including Cancer In The Body"
F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
