Bob Butts believes that if people would simply drink enough water each day they could rid themselves of most ailments, including asthma, allergies, depression, cancer, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy. The Water Cure: It really is that simple by Richard Rieben
high blood pressure
A little over a year ago, we found my husband had high blood pressure. The initial response was for him to take Hyzaar. Mike, after finding information you had on your web site about water and hypertension being a result of constantly being dehydrated the house lights went on for me as my Mike, just does not drink water, or very many fluids at all. After much nagging and finally resorting to bribery (he’s allowed to spend the money we used to spend on Hyzaar for further restoration of his 1958 Chevy Apache) I did get him to finally start drinking water – lots of it! I am happy to report that he no longer takes medication and his blood pressure is NORMAL! He would regularly be over 140/90 and now stays in the 120/80 range. We still find that if he has a day that he just doesn't drink enough water; the blood pressure will want to creap up over the 120/80 - like 135/87 - drink water - down it comes again. Source
I asked myself, why does the pharmaceutical industry insist on using
antihistamines for this kind of pain medication? So I started researching the
role of histamine in the body, and the answer was there -- histamine is a
neurotransmitter in charge of water regulation and the drought management
programs of the body. When it manifests pain, in fact, it is indicating
So, the body does manifest dehydration in the form of pain. Now, depending on where dehydration is settled, you feel pain there......I presented this concept at the international conference as the guest lecturer of a conference on cancer, explaining that the human body manifests dehydration by producing pain, and pain is a sign of water shortage in the body, and water shortage is actually the background to most of the health problems in our society.The Water Cure: An interview with Dr. Batmanghelidj
Now, children, there are 17 million children in America, probably more
because the numbers rise every year, who have asthma, and the reason is, at the
same time, children have been consuming more and more sodas. Three year olds to
five year olds have been consuming three times as much soda in the last ten
years than in the ten years before that. So these people are getting dehydrated,
they are consuming more sodas, which doesn't function in the same way as water,
and that is why they get asthma. Now, give these children water, and their
asthma will disappear very quickly, in a matter of a few hours, completely the
breathing becomes normal. The need for these inhalers will disappear.
And when I contacted the NIH and explained all of this, the gentleman who was in charge of this said I was so ignorant on what was going on, and yet he wanted to protect his freedom, and so he ignored the information even though I had gone to Clinton, President Clinton to ask him to intervene, and give breath back to these children. But the NIH was adamant to use medication. He wrote me, actually, and said we are satisfied with the way asthma is being treated. So, this is the situation. Now 17 million children is America can recover in a matter of a few days if everyone in the country started talking to asthmatic people and saying water is what you should take. Can you imagine a solution so simple? The Water Cure: An interview with Dr. Batmanghelidj
I have written a book called Water Cures and Drugs Kill. It's a book that
explains why dehydration is the cause of pain and disease, and how the
pharmaceutical industry has camouflaged this information or covered it up and
instead of letting people drink water, it advertises the use of their products,
which actually do kill. Because recent figures have shown that prescription
medications, when used according to the instruction of doctors, nonetheless kill
over 106,000 people, and make 2 million people sicker than before taking the
medication. And then there is another group who die from faulty prescriptions,
So between them, about 250,000 people die from drug-related problems, medication-related problems. This makes the drugs the use of drugs the number three killer processes in the country -- protected and licensed killer process. After heart disease, which kills about seven or eight hundred thousand, cancer which kills about 500,000, drugs kill 250,000 people. The Water Cure: An interview with Dr. Batmanghelidj
Most of the medication they are using is to cover up symptoms and signs and complications of dehydration in the human body. The human body manifests dehydration by a series of symptoms and signs, perceptive symptoms of dehydration -- in other words, brain senses dehydration, or tiredness when you haven't done a good day's work, or first thing in the morning when you want to get up out of bed and you're tired, you can't get up -- that is a sign of dehydration. Then anger, quick reaction, depression, these are all signs of dehydration, when the brain has very little energy from hydroelectricity to cope with the information or take action. These are some of the perceptive signs of dehydration. Then the body has its drought management program, which are allergies, hypertension, diabetes, and also immune diseases.

Lowering Blood Pressure
From the book: "Your Body's Many Cries for Water"AMAZING SECRETS FOR HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Cure # 1: Water prevents and cures heartburn.
Heartburn is a signal of
water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major
thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in
the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues
to suffer as a result of its water shortage.
Tragedy: Not recognizing heartburn as a sign of dehydration and treating it with antacids and pill medications will, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and eventually cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.
Rheumatoid joint pain - arthritis - is a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of pain-killers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.Cure # 3: Water prevents and cures back pain.
Low back pain and
ankylosing arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the
spinal column and discs - the water cushions that support the weight
of the body. These conditions should be treated with increased water
intake - not a commercial treatment, but a very effective one.
Tragedy: Not recognizing arthritis and low back pain as signs of dehydration in the joint cavities and treating them with pain-killers, manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time, produce osteoarthritis when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually all died. It will produce deformity of the spine. It will produce crippling deformities of the limbs. Pain medications have their own life-threatening complications.
Heart pain - angina - is a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Medical supervision is prudent. However, increased water intake is angina's cure.
Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss of eye sight.
Colitis pain is a signal of
water shortage in the large gut. It is associated with constipation because the
large intestine constricts to squeeze the last drop of water from the excrements
- thus the lack of water lubrication.
Tragedy: Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration will cause persistent constipation. Later in life, it will cause fecal impacting: it can cause diverticulitis, hemorrhoids and polyps, and appreciably increases the possibility of developing cancer of the colon and rectum.
Asthma, which also affects 14
million children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a
complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management
programs of the body. In asthma free passage of air is obstructed so that water
does not leave the body in the form of vapor - the winter steam. Increased water
intake will prevent asthma attacks. Asthmatics need also to take more salt to
break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out
of the air sacs.
Tragedy: Not recognizing asthma as the indicator of dehydration in the body of a growing child not only will sentence many thousands of children to die every year, but will permit irreversible genetic damage to establish in the remaining 14 million asthmatic children.
Hypertension is a state of
adaptation of the body to a generalized drought, when there is not enough water
to fill all the blood vessels that diffuse water into vital cells. As part of
the mechanism of reverse osmosis, when water from the blood serum is filtered
and injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra
pressure is needed for the "injection process." Just as we inject I.V. "water"
in hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions of cells all at
the same time. Water and some salt intake will bring blood pressure back to
Tragedy: Not recognizing hypertension as one of the major indicators of dehydration in the human body, and treating it with diuretics that further dehydrate the body will, in time, cause blockage by cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries that go to the brain. It will cause heart attacks and small or massive strokes that paralyze. It will eventually cause kidney disease. It will cause brain damage and neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Adult-onset diabetes is
another adaptive state to severe dehydration of the human body. To have adequate
water in circulation and for the brain's priority water needs, the release of
insulin is inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells.
In diabetes, only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt
will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages.
Tragedy: Not recognizing adult-onset diabetes as a complication of dehydration will, in time, cause massive damage to the blood vessels all over the body. It will cause eventual loss of the toes, feet and legs from gangrene. It will cause eye damage, even blindness.
High cholesterol levels are an indicator of early drought management by the body. Cholesterol is a clay-like material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them against losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a "shield" against water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their cell membranes.
These conditions are caused by prolonged chronic dehydration. They will clear up once the body becomes well and regularly hydrated. In these conditions, exercising one's muscles should be part of the treatment program.
