Mike: Welcome everyone, this is Mike Adams with Truth
Publishing, and today I’m very excited to be welcoming Dr.
Batmanghelidj, author of Water For Health, For Healing, For
Life. Welcome, Dr. Batmanghelidj.
Dr. B: Thank you very much for inviting me to be on the air with
you and giving me the opportunity of sharing my thoughts on the
future of medicine in this country.
Mike: I think there are many, many people who have read your
books. People are intrigued by the idea that water can be a
therapy, a healing substance for the human body. What is it
about water? How did you first become aware of these healing
properties of water?
Dr. B: Well, it’s very bizarre. As you know, I’m a regular
doctor, an M.D. I had the honor and the privilege of being
selected as one of the house doctors, and I had the extreme
honor of being one of the last students of Sir Alexander
Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin. I mention his name so
that you know I was immersed in medical school and research.
some years later, I had to give two glasses of water to a person
who was doubled up in abdominal pain from his disease, because I
had no other medication to give him at that moment. And he was
in excruciating pain, and water performed miraculous relief for
It gave him relief - within three minutes his pain
diminished, and within eight minutes it disappeared completely,
whereas he was doubled up eight minutes before and he couldn’t
even walk, he completely recovered from that situation. And he
started beaming from ear to ear, very happy, asked me what
happens if the pain comes back?
“Well, drink more
Then I decided to instruct him to drink two glasses of
water every three hours. Which he did, and that was the end of
his ulcer pains for the rest of the duration that he was with
Mike: And from that episode then, what happened next?
Dr. B: That woke me up, because in medical school I’d never
heard that water could cure pain, that kind of pain, in fact.
And so I had the occasion to test water as a medication in
subsequently over 3,000 similar cases. And water proved every
time to be an effective medication. I came away from that
experience with the understanding that these people were all
thirsty, and that thirst in the body can manifest itself in the
form of abdominal pain to the level that the person can even
become semi-conscious, because that’s the experience I had. And
water picks them up every time.
So when I came to America in 1982, I went to the University of
Pennsylvania, where I was invited to continue my research, and
did research in the pain-relieving properties of water.
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 dehydration.
So, the body does manifest dehydration in the form of pain. Now,
depending on where dehydration is settled, you feel pain there.
Very simple, and 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.
Because if you look at what the pharmaceutical industry is
doing, they’re producing so many different antihistamines as
medication. Antidepressant drugs are antihistamines, pain
medication are antihistamines, other medications are directly
and indirectly antihistamines.
So, that is when my work was
published, the scientific secretariat of the 3rd Interscience
Board Conference of Inflammation invited me to make this
presentation on histamine at their conference in 1989, in Monte
Carlo. And I did that, and so it became a regular understanding
that histamine is a water regulator in the body.
unfortunately, this information is not reaching the public
through the medical community because it’s not a money-maker.
So that’s when I began to consider writing for the public, so
that the public could become aware of the problem directly
without the interference of a doctor, and that’s how I have
generated all my medical information for the public.
I have published extensively for the scientific community, but
no one is picking up. In fact, the NIH, the Office of
Alternative Medicine, had its first conference when the office
was created, and I was asked to make my presentation, but when
the proceedings of the conference came out, my presentation was
censored after the proceedings.
So there is a movement afoot
within the NIH group of people to keep a closed lid on my
information so that it doesn’t get out, because obviously they
are more in favor of the drug industry, because it is now
obvious that they are getting paid by them.
Mike: I think it is, first of all, that is an amazing account of
what has been happening, and I think it is fair to say, too,
that the pharmaceutical industry and organized medicine in
general, really doesn’t want to promote anything that is free or
near-free to the average patient.
Sunlight is available at no
charge, water is available at nearly no charge - would you
agree that their thinking is if people can cure their diseases,
and achieve a high state of health on their own with these free
substances, then that diminishes their profits and their
Dr. B: Absolutely. That’s why I’ve created an organization now
called National Association for Honesty in Medicine.
think it’s totally dishonest, in fact, criminal, to treat a
person who is just thirsty, and give them toxic medication so
that he gets sick and dies earlier than normal.
Mike: Can you give out the web address to that organization, by
Dr. B: My website is
http://www.watercure.com - it gives you
the option of going to one site or the other - either Water Cure.com, or you can go the National Association for Honesty in
Or you can go to the information
side of my website,
http://www.watercure.com, because I have posted all of my
scientific articles on dehydration on the website, and lots of
other free information that people can have.
AIDS and the Pharmaceutical
Mike: I want to
applaud what I call your scientific curiosity.
I think this is
the kind of curiosity that has been lost in so much of western
medicine, where a true scientist observes nature and observes
the interaction between humans and nature, and remains curious
and open and to all possibilities, and then forms conclusions
after rigorous testing, and I think so much of modern science
has drawn erroneous conclusions without really remaining
Dr. B: Yes, one of the worst ones is AIDS. Because everyone
assumes that AIDS is actually a viral disease, which is a
fraudulent statement by those people who presented it, because
the human body is the product of many, many years of having
fought various viral diseases, and has survived.
polio, measles, and all the other viruses that can kill very
easily, and the body has an ability to mount a defense system
against these hot viruses, viruses that actually very quickly
can kill. But having survived those, how is it possible that the
slow virus would kill us in the name of AIDS? I can’t understand
I have researched this topic extensively, and I have shown in
fact that AIDS is a metabolic problem, when the body begins to
cannibalize its own tissue because of certain missing elements
in the raw materials that it receives through food or beverages,
and the body of a person who gets AIDS, actually, is short of
quite a number of building block amino acids. They’re short of
tyrosine, they’re short of
cysteine, they’re short
histidine, and they’ve got a whole lot of others in excess.
So how can we expect a body that depends on the other amino
acids to survive?
Mike: Once again we see AIDS is a huge industry for the
Dr. B: Well, of course it is, and the whole entire existence of
the pharmaceutical industry is based on presentation of false
science, and advertising this false science and drumming it into
the minds of gullible people who have no curiosity to find out
why that is so.
Dr. B: Another false
science is the question of cholesterol.
Cholesterol is one of
the most essential elements in the survival of the human body.
When the body begins to make more cholesterol, it has a reason
to do that. It is certainly not to block the arteries of the
heart, because we measure the level of cholesterol in the body
in the blood we take out of the veins of the body, and nowhere
in the history of medicine is there recorded one single case of
cholesterol ever having blocked the veins of the body.
So, it is not the stickiness of the cholesterol that is the
problem, which the drug industry is drumming it into the minds
of people - cholesterol is sticky, reduce it otherwise you will
have blockage of your arteries, which is all nonsense.
Cholesterol is actually saving the lives of people, because
cholesterol is a bandage, a waterproof bandage that the body has
When the blood becomes concentrated and acidic, and is
being rushed through constricted arteries or capillaries, in
dehydration, then abrasions and tears are produced in the
arterial system, naturally, in the capillaries of the heart
Now if cholesterol wasn’t there to cover up the tear and
abrasions, blood would get under the membrane and peel it off
and that person would be dead instantly. Cholesterol is actually
an interim lifesaver, giving the body time to recover from its
problems. We never understood this. We are knee-jerk doctors. We
think that something’s up, bring it down, if something’s down,
bring it up.
We don’t ask questions why is it down or why is it
Mike: And the pharmaceutical companies know that treating
cholesterol is a huge industry...
Dr. B: It’s a ten-billion dollar industry. Now there is a report
that actually these
statins, cholesterol-lowering drugs produce
amnesia. In other words, the brain totally loses track of what
it’s doing, and it is published by a doctor who is an eminent
He was a flight surgeon, he is a researcher at NASA. And
he knows what he’s talking about.
He had the problem himself.
Mike: I just wanted to comment on the number of side effects
that have been recorded as side effects from using statin drugs.
Some people have extreme muscular pain, that amnesia you
mentioned seems to be very common, and yet a study just came
out, I saw it this morning, talking about how blueberries have
phytonutrients that are shown to lower so-called fatty
cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, more powerfully than statin drugs.
Dr. B: It’s interesting, because you see, the body manufactures
cholesterol as an emergency situation, when it raises the level
of its production.
Its normal rate of production is of course is
to create membranes for the cell membranes and brain cells and
nerve insulation and of course the hormones of the body, vitamin
D for the body. So these are the essential components that
cholesterol makes in the body.
We should never interfere with
cholesterol without knowing why the body has starting raising
No substitute for water
Mike: I have a question for you on water - a lot of people
think that they are hydrating themselves when they consume soft
drinks or milk or Gatorade or all these other liquid beverages…
Dr. B: Gatorade is possibly okay, but Gatorade has sugar in it,
and it's not particularly good for people who might even get
hypoglycemic, or might induce insulin secretion, and that
insulin secretion will produce more hunger and they overeat.
as a temporary sport drink, it's okay when you're in the middle
of a golf game to drink a Gatorade. It immediately gives you a
bit of the minerals that you probably will have lost sweating.
But nothing substitutes for water - not a thing. No drink - no
coffee, no tea, no alcoholic beverages. Not even fruit juices.
Each one of them has its own agenda. Your body is used to a
fluid that has no agenda, because the body depends on the
freedom of that fluid, water, because there are two kinds of
water in the body.
There is already occupied and engaged water,
which is no good for new function. The body needs new water, or
free water, to perform new functions. Now, when you give them
sugar containing beverages, or caffeine containing beverages,
both sugar and caffeine have their own chemical agenda in the
They defeat the purpose of the need for water.
Mike: You're also talking about soft drinks here…
Dr. B: I'm talking about soft drinks, I'm talking about sodas,
I'm talking about caffeine containing coffee or tea. I'm also
talking about alcohol, because alcohol actually stops the
emergency water supply systems to the important cells, such as
the brain cells. In the reverse osmosis process your body
filters and injects water into the cells, and this is what I
call reverse osmosis.
And it has to raise the blood pressure for
that in order to overcome the osmotic pull of water out of the
cells, and reinject water into the cells. That's why we develop
high-blood pressure in dehydration.
And this process of reverse
osmosis is stopped by alcohol. It stops the filter system.
Chronic Disease Caused by Lack of
Mike: Let me start this next section by asking you about the
correlation between water consumption and chronic disease.
are many diseases you mention in your books that are related to
dehydration. I wonder if you can give our readers a brief of
what the major diseases are and why they are aggravated or
promoted by chronic dehydration.
Dr. B: Certainly, Mike. I have written a book called
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, incorrect 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.
Mike: So it's fair to say that pharmaceuticals, as packaged by
modern medicine, are the third leading cause of death in this
Dr. B: Absolutely, and they are useless, because 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
Then the body has its drought management program,
which are allergies, hypertension, diabetes, and also immune
The link between dehydration and
Mike: I'd like you to
elaborate a little more on asthma, and the idea that the body is
managing its water supply deliberately in a way that produces
symptoms that are called asthma.
Dr. B: Yes, well you see, drought management means that you have
to clog the holes where water is lost from the body. Water is
the most precious commodity in the interior of your body, and
when not enough is coming in and more is being lost, this is a
no-no situation for your body.
The intelligence behind the
design of the body has it such that a drought management program
will kick in, and then allergies are a sign of dehydration
because the system that regulates water balance of the body
suppresses the immune system, because it's an energy-consuming
situation. Then you get asthma.
You see, we lose about a quart of water through breathing every
day. It is actually the surface tension in the alveoli of the
lungs that produces contraction of these tiny membranes, and air
is pushed out. And in the process, that water will leave with
the air that is leaving. So you lose about a quart of water in
breathing. We need to replenish that.
When we don't replenish
it, the body tightens up the bronchials and plugs up the holes
and we call this reduced air flow in the lungs because of
dehydration, we've labeled it as asthma.
Mike: Right. I've always been amazed that the willingness of
modern medicine or western medicine to come up with these
complicated sounding labels or names for diseases that should
really have simpler names.
Dr. B: Jargon peddling is the way of commercial medicine.
Sick-care system survives and thrives on pushing these jargons
into the minds of the people, because people don't understand
what these jargons, they hear them and they don't associate with
anything in the body, but associate them with those jargons of
fear that are drummed in the minds of people.
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
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.
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?
Mike: Yes. Yes I can, and there are many such solutions
available to treat a great number of chronic diseases, just like
you've been describing here. Of course, the pharmaceutical
industry I think would be horrified to have that information
Dr. B: Yeah, well, because what I'm saying is totally
anti-business, and we are not talking about a few hundred
thousand dollars, we are talking about a few billion dollars a
Treating hypertension with water
Mike: For the
pharmaceutical industry, the existence of disease is a business
question, because let's face it, the pharmaceutical industry is
a for-profit industry.
Profits are always first, and at least
it's my belief, and it seems that you share it, that any therapy
that competes with those profits is minimized, marginalized or
Dr. B: Yes, recently there was an ad on the television. It was
very interesting - I didn't realize it at the beginning, but I
now realize that the ad was speaking to me. In other words, it
was an ad against my statements.
Because I've said that the
heartburn is a sign of dehydration in the human body and you
should drink water. And this guy comes and sits at the counter
and asks, “Give me a glass of water, my heartburn is killing
me.” Or something like that.
And the lady behind the counter
“Water doesn't cure heartburn - this medication does.”
see, this is how the pharmaceutical industry fights the
information that I put out. But nonetheless, people who did
discover that water could cure their heartburn are wiser than
those who buy into that advertising stunt.
Mike: It seems like there are almost two different groups of
people in the United States.
There are those who are now
dependent on multiple pharmaceuticals to treat everything, every
symptom that they have, and who alter their body chemistry and
their brain chemistry through drugs, and then there are those
who are educating themselves about the true causes of health.
They're drinking water, they're avoiding food additives, they're
engaging in exercise - it seems like there's a chasm that's
widening between these two groups.
Dr. B: Absolutely. That's why alternative medicine has picked up
and you're getting more people going to alternative medicine
than conventional medicine. You see, I've sold at least over
600,000 copies of my book Your Body's Many Cries for Water over
the past 10 years.
And so I've had over several thousand radio
interviews in the past 10 years. Information is getting out into
the hands of the public, so the pharmaceutical industry has to
naturally increase its advertising to nullify this information
that I have put out. That is why they have produced this ad - one of many, actually.
Anyway, we were talking about drought management programs in the
body. Hypertension is another one of these problems. When there
isn't enough water in the body, or the body becomes dehydrated,
66% of the water loss is from the interior of the cells. 26% is
from the environment around the cells, and only 8% is lost from
the vascular system.
But the vascular system is an elastic
system - it tightens up and takes up the slack so you don't see
the problem that is going on inside the cells of your body by
testing your blood that is being tested in so many conditions.
If people drank water on a regular basis and took enough salt
and minerals to expand the capillary beds, hypertension would
And there are 60 million Americans who don't realize that
actually hypertension is one of the manifestations of drought
management programs of the body when the body begins to operate
a reverse osmosis process, to deliver water into the interior of
those cells which are 66% water deficient.
pharmaceutical industry and the medical doctors arrogantly and
ignorantly are treating hypertension with diuretics.
Mike: Let's get rid of the water!
Dr. B: They are getting rid of the water in the body, at a lot
of, how shall I say, effort.
Mike: Isn't this an example of the arrogance of modern medicine
in believing that it knows more than nature, it knows more than
Dr. B: We, as doctors, are really 007 agents of the
pharmaceutical industry. We are totally blind and ignorant and
the pharmaceutical industry has hijacked medicine.
We learn a
couple of years of physiology, and soon as we go on the clinical
side we are asked to forget those and begin to learn
pharmacology in order to treat symptoms rather than understand
the primary cause of the health problem.
Mike: But you were trained in classic, conventional way...
Dr. B: I had to educate myself.
Thinking outside the box
Mike: What it is that
drove you to explore beyond the limited thinking of conventional
Dr. B: I'm always a curious person. I've been a curious person
ever since I was born as far as I know.
One day we had a thief
come into the house and was on the wall, and I was only a two
and a half year old boy. I went to him and said,
“What are you
doing here? Can't you see you're scaring everyone? Why don't you
I wasn't scared, I was curious.
That is what I am, right throughout my life, and that is why
when I discovered that water cures pain, then this was an
entrance for me to get into it and find out what was the reason.
And that was when I discovered that my education was no good. I
didn't learn medicine, I learned a little bit of anatomy and a
little bit of histology, which stood me in good stead in order
to understand the rest of the stuff.
Mike: You are, I'm sure the listeners would agree here, you are
to be applauded for being able to venture outside of
Dr. B: I'm only a healer because that's my way of thinking. I
don't think about money, because money is, if you do a good
deed, money will come as a by product of that good deed.
Mike: I agree with you wholeheartedly there.
Dr. B: You don't have to try and take the last drop of blood out
of a person who comes to you in order to get help from you. That
is against my nature.
That's why I've put out my information for
everyone to use on the internet, and it is only for further use
or further education that I have produced my books and so on,
and those books unfortunately, the cost of printing,
distribution, forces the price on the information.
pharmaceutical industry had the information that they were going
to sell, for example the information in my book
Your Body's Many
Cries For Water, they would ask for $10,000 a book, not $14.95.
Mike: And, if they could, they would patent water...
Dr. B: They would patent it.
Mike: And try to sell it to you at $100 a dose, right?
Dr. B: That's right. So, basically, this is what's going on in
medicine in America. Joint pain, back pain, arthritis cause by
chronic dehydration. The human body also has its
emergency calls for water.
These are localized emergency calls.
We call these heartburn, rheumatoid joint pain, back pain,
migraine headaches, colitis pain, fibromyalgiac pain, even
angina pain - signs of dehydration in the body.
And the mechanism is very simple - when there isn't enough
water to be evenly distributed and certain parts of the body are
working but not receiving enough water to deal with its toxic
waste and metabolism, and the toxic waste builds up that area,
the nerve endings in that area register the chemical
environmental change with the brain.
And the brain translates
this information for the conscious mind in the form of pain.
Mike: So it's just the interpretation?
Dr. B: It's an interpretation, yes. So the conscious mind gets
the information that, hey, this area we can't use anymore, it
has a shortage of water. Of course, the conscious mind should
have known that, but bad education has robbed us of that
information. We think this pain is a disease.
Mike: The predominant diagnosis of this, of course, I think in
the minds of most people, and especially in most M.D.s would be
that there is something physically or structurally compromised
in that area.
Dr. B: Well, of course, the compromise is when the tissue is
dehydrated, it's changing structure. The plum-like cells become
Prune-like cells do not function in the same manners
as a plum-like cell. So, that is how symptoms are produced.
These symptoms mean, okay, let us get the ingredients that the
body needs into the system. Now, when we say dehydration, water
also brings a lot of other goodies to the cells. When we are
dehydrated, these goodies are not delivered either.
So, we need
not only correct dehydration, but also to supply the minerals
and vitamins and so on so that the body can repair itself.
Thirst perception not reliable
Mike: I'd like to you
talk about how people can know when they need to drink water,
because you talk about in the book how some of the signs of
dehydration, the classic signs are not necessarily the only
signs, and also how much should an average person be drinking?
Dr. B: First and foremost, don't wait until you get thirsty,
because that's an error. Unfortunately, the National Academy of
Sciences and some other people recently have been telling people
to wait until they get thirsty before they drink, which is the
main error that we inherited 100 years ago from a man called
Walter Bradford Cannon.
And that's why, at the time, there was a
Frenchman saying that dehydration or thirst is a general
sensation and we should study it, and Walter Bradford Cannon
said, no, thirst is only a matter of dry mouth.
When the mouth is dry we are thirsty, which is an arrogant
statement, and unfortunately western medicine bought into that
understanding, and that's why we have a sick-care system,
because from the age of 20 onwards, we gradually, imperceptibly
become dehydrated without knowing it.
We lose our perception of
thirst. By the age of 70 we may be totally thirsty and obviously
thirsty and yet not recognize the need to drink water, even when
water is put next to us.
This was done as an experiment. A scientist asked a group of
elderly people to withhold from drinking water for 24 hours, and
similarly with young people.
After 24 hours when water was made
available, the elderly did not recognize that they were thirsty.
Mike: Even after 24 hours with no water?
Dr. B: Correct. Even when water was left next to them, some of
them wouldn't reach for it. But the young people drank water,
and corrected this dehydration.
Now, this is a major problem,
and that's why we have so many people in the elderly sector of
our society who are sick, because they are totally dehydrated
and they do not recognize it.
So, waiting to get thirsty is to die prematurely and very
painfully. In fact, this is the title of an article that is
posted on my
website, and also on
NAFHIM, National Association
For Honesty In Medicine.
We should not wait to get thirsty, because water is the main
source of energy. By the time you get thirsty, you will have
lost energy from the water that you should have drunk and made
available before you get thirsty. So, if you don't allow the gas
tank of your car to come dry before you stop and take some gas,
then why should you let your body become thirsty so that it
stalls on the roadside before you drink water?
So, first thing, people should never allow themselves to get
thirsty - they should drink throughout the day. An average
person needs two quarts of water a day. Average person really
needs four quarts of water a day. But two quarts we have to
Two quarts we get from food metabolism and water content
in foods. We need this amount of water to manufacture at least
two quarts of urine. You know, not to put pressure on the
kidneys. When we drink enough water so that the urine is
colorless, that is a good sign.
When the urine becomes yellow,
it means that the body is beginning to become dehydrated and
when it becomes orange, then the body is truly dehydrated and
some part of the body is suffering from that dehydration.
Mike: So this is a very easy sign that people can pay attention
Dr. B: Absolutely.
Mike: They don't need a medical degree to see the color of their
Dr. B: Well, that's why we should become observant to our urine
production. And breathing - when we are short of breath, it
means we are dehydrated.
Mike: Are there other similar, simple symptoms that people can
pay attention to?
Dr. B: The skin - if the skin is nice and loose and smooth,
then we are hydrated. If it becomes creasy and shriveled, it
means dehydration. The crow's feet on the face of elderly
people, that's a sign of dehydration. The turkey neck under the
chin is a sign of dehydration.
These are mentioned in my books,
Your Body's Many Cries for Water, and also in my Water For
Health, For Healing, For Life. I recommend everyone to read
Water Cures, Drugs Kill, because in this book I've identified
over 90 health problems that we in medicine have called disease,
and yet water cures them.
So, when the body is short of water and they give it medication,
naturally the person will die, because the medication is
silencing the many cries of the body for water. But it's not
correcting the dehydration. So we need to understand these
symptoms of dehydration, and the book Water Cures, Drugs Kill
will do that.
Mike: You have an upcoming book on obesity, cancer, and
Dr. B: Yes, I've got a book called
Obesity, Cancer and
Depression: The Common Cause and Actual Cure.
why these three diseases are actually the branches of the same
tree, and each one naturally produces a different problem at
different age brackets, but they are all related conditions that
occur as a result of dehydration over time. Time is of essence - when incrementally we become dehydrated, the prune-like cells
begin to transform. Some of them become cancerous, and I've
explained all of this in the book.
I explain how dehydration
suppresses the immune system, directly or indirectly, and that's
how most diseases occur, including cancer.
Mike: When is this book going to be published?
Dr. B: It will be available by the end of the year. People can
keep an eye on the website
http://www.watercure.com, and it will be posted there when the
book is available.
Sodas cause dehydration
Mike: Now here's another
interesting question people have - when they go out to eat at a
restaurant, there's a tremendous amount of economic pressure
from the point of view of the restaurant chain or restaurant
owner to serve them something other than water. I remember there
was a campaign at one time through Olive Garden restaurants.
campaign was called Just Say No to H2O, and they were rewarding
waiters for making sure people bought some soft drinks rather
than drinking water.
Dr. B: That's because everyone is after a fast buck, even at the
expense of someone else's health.
These restaurants are no
different from the pharmaceutical industry when they push
something that the body doesn't need. Of course, they don't
know, they don't do it knowingly. One can't fault them. It's bad
education, and we think that these soft drinks are synonymous
Actually, a lot of children who drink soft drinks actually
become “stupid”, but once you take the soft drink away from
them, their grades improve tremendously - C's and F's become
A's and B's. So, there is something in caffeine that suppresses
the enzymes from memory-making. And this is exactly how the
plant survives, because caffeine is a toxic chemical - it's a
warfare chemical for the plant.
Anything that would eat it will
lose its art of camouflage, its alertness, good reaction, good
response, and becomes easy prey to its own food chain predator.
Mike: Yes, caffeine is technically an insecticide.
Dr. B: Caffeine is technically an insecticide. So is morphine
and so is cocaine. They are the same family of drugs - neurotoxic substances.
Mike: Is there anything else in particular that our listeners
should be aware of or should do to enhance their health through
the information that you make available?
Dr. B: Yes, they can keep in touch. They can go to my website on
a regular basis, and we post information there and letters that
we exchange and so on. They can become part of the movement to
bring honesty back into medicine.
Because if they're young
people, they've got many years to go, and unfortunately in a
dishonest form of medical practice, they can become vulnerable.
Mike: That website is…
Mike: And the other one is http://www.nafhim.org?
Dr. B: Yes, but they will get the option at http://www.watercure.com
to go to either site.
This information is free, it's the latest
information in medical science, it's the future science of
medicine, it's the foundation of the future science of medicine,
and they have it at their use, free of charge. All they have to
do is become curious as to learn. And the information is in such
simple language that anyone can understand it. I don't use
I use very simple English to explain complicated
Mike: I thank you so much for your generosity, being willing to
take this time and share your wisdom with the world.
Dr. B: Mike, it is my pleasure, and I thank you. I'm here to be
heard and you make it possible for me to be heard, and I'm
grateful to you.
Mike: Indeed, and likewise from this side. It's people like you
that will revolutionize medicine, and that's what we need today.
Dr. B: Bernard Shaw says that normal people try to conform, and
reasonable people do not conform, and look for alternatives.
Therefore all progress belongs to unreasonable people.
