I was never one for drinking water, worry much about diet or doing exercise, but in the last few years (I’m 37) it seemed the body was starting to have problems as a pattern and I had no idea where from or why. When I decided to start taking better care of myself, You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty by F. Batmanghelidj was one of the first things that came up.
From the book:
“A change of lifestyle becomes vital for the correction of any dehydration-produced disorder. The backbone of The Water Cure program is, simply, sufficient water and salt intake; regular exercise; a balanced, mineral-rich diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables and the essential fats needed to create cell membranes, hormones, and nerve insulation; exclusion of caffeine and alcohol; and meditation to solve and detoxify stressful thoughts. Exclusion of artificial sweeteners from the diet is an absolute must for better health.”
