Your Body's Many Cries for Water
13 journalers for this copy...
This is such an easy book to read and understand, a simple thing to bring into your life, and put into practice, and yet it can save disease and your health, I really do belive that! Dr B. shows us how a simple glass of water can change our health for the better, and ultimately could change the healthcare systems if enough pepole were made aware of the benefits. Water is non-profitable - unlike the pharmacutical industry - so what have you got to loose? I challenge everyone to read this book and put it into practice and *not* see beneficial results! I'm offering this up on an international ring, and am hoping for it to have a large list of readers!
Here's the reading list and order *so far*!! Please check this before contacting the next person on the list, as this is subject to change. If the book on the move is getting too dog eared to survive a couple more reads, then please *PM me* so I can then purchase another book and on reciept of the old one I'll mail the new one out to keep the ring moving.

The most interesting health fact I gleaned from the book is that morning sickness can be attributed to dehydration and can be alleviated, if not cured, by drinking lots of water. I have never been pregnant, but if that should ever happen, I am going to make sure I drink enough water to see if the doctor is right!
The book is now on its way to loopy1.
As someone who regularly has a coffee on waking then nothing else to drink until DH comes home at night, I've been concerned about my hydration level for a while. I'm hoping this book will be the spur I need to get myself sorted out and up my liquid intake considerably. Thanks!
It's been the spur to convince me that I need to drink more water though, and I'll be trying to up my water intake over the next few weeks - I might even report back to say if it's had any effect :-)
Thanks for this, it will be travelling off to Chrisp93 within the hour.
So I got up out of bed and drank two glasses of water. And then another 6 during the rest of yesterday. I've always known I didn't drink enough: by the time your mouth feels dry, you are already severely dehydrated, Dr Batman reckons.
So today I'm sending the good book on its way to kathys
I've given this book a seven - it's not a particularly good read, like all medical journals. It just has such a vital message for us all.
Having felt terrible for the last couple of days, I immediately picked the book up in the hope that it would at least cheer me up! Within a couple of minutes I had to go and get a glass of water :-)
I'm already about half way through and can see that the Dr's theories makes sense. Unfortunately I think the down side of all the extra rehydrating water is all the extra trips to the loo! And as we only have one, which is upstairs, all the extra exercise getting there :-O Does this mean I'll be slim and healthy? I really hope so!
The way this is reading, I should have it on the way to Kangaroo in the next couple of days.
Thanks jackshome for bringing Dr Batman's message to my attention. The book is now on it's way to Kangaroo and should arrive in the next couple of days.
UPDATE: 6 October 2004
Still not drinking caffeine in any form, and feel much better for it :o) Very few headaches now and my skin is much better. Thank you so much for helping me to kick my tea addiction jackshome!
UPDATE: 15 January 2007
Still not drinking caffeine in any form! I don't miss it but I must admit that I don't drink enough water these days. I very rarely suffer from headaches anymore but I haven't lost weight - it's stable but I still need to loose some. I wonder how other people are 3 years down the line?
My dad has been shouting about drinking more water for years, so I might have to let him have a quick look before I send it on!
Will be sending on to Netstation shortly.
I'm sending it off to Moondreamer now.
The explanations given for the illnesses I have some direct awareness of made sense to my (very basic) layman's understanding, and I found the desciption of the effect of artificial sweeteners fascinating - I've only recently 'given in' and allowed the children to have 'no added sugar' squash regularly, and I suspect we shall shortly again be seeking out the fairly elusive 'no artificial sweetener' ones! Since they're only allowed it at mealtimes anyway, I shall also be actively trying to persuade them to drink more water in-between. Each has a slight tendency towards asthma, and one an allergy similar to mild hayfever, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
Thanks very much for starting this off, jackshome.
As kleptokitty is in Portugal, I've contacted ToriaLouise for her address.
Thanks for sharing - a really enlightening book. Passing on to jeweleee now.
Will be in the post to the next person tomorrow. Thank you!!
