bobad, that's interesting, tho' it is false to say that Dr.Batmanghelidj obtained all his information from reading.

he tells a story of being in prison soon after returning from the UK as a trained doctor back to Iran.

Suddenly there's a man rolling around on the floor clutching his stomach. He demands of the doctor some treatment. Batman (!!) says he hasn't been allowed any medical supplies but gives the man two glasses of water. Within 20 minutes, the patient is back to normal.

dr.Batman also cured 1000s of people of peptic ulcers with water, an example of his saying lots of people aren't ill, just thirsty.

And that's my other criticism of the net article. They conclude one should be commonsensical about it. Trouble is, people often don't know or recognise the signs of thirst. Many snack when they're actually thirsty.

one place where I agree with the article is that the situation varies from person to person. W're all unique, too.

In our societies, we're not encouraged to listen to our body but to our thoughts.
