Asthma, allergies, arthritis, hypertension, depression, headaches, diabetes, obesity, and MS. These are just some of the conditions and diseases that are caused by persistent dehydration. But there is a miracle solution that is readily available, all natural, and free: water. According to the author, Dr. Batmanghelidj, water is the answer to so many of the conditions currently being treated by medical prescriptions. I received this book at a time when I didn’t have time to read it, and even knowing that, I could not put it down for a day and a half. I love how the book provides the anatomical and physiological explanations for how water helps our health. It is a no nonsense approach by someone who is obviously frustrated with the medical industry. Whether you agree with all of its claims or not, you will learn so much about the human body, and this prescription won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
