“You’re not sick; you’re thirsty.
Don’t treat thirst with medication.”

You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty
Don’t Treat Thirst with Medication
“Medical professionals of today do not understand the vital roles of water in the human body. Medications are palliatives. They are not designed to cure the degenerative disease of the human body.
The current practice of clinical medicine is based on the application of pharmacological chemistry to the human body. At the medical school, more than six hundred teaching hours are allocated to the use of pharmaceutical products. Only a few hours are allocated to instructions on diet and nutrition.
The simple truth is that dehydration can cause diseases. Everyone knows that water is good for the body. They seem not to know how essential it is to one’s well-being. They do not know what happens to the body if it does not receive its daily need of water.”
“We misinterpret thirst signals as pain, and treat them with drugs which silence instead of cure the problem. Because dehydration eventually causes loss of some functions, the various signals given by water distribution system regulators during severe and lasting dehydration have been translated as indicators of unknown disease conditions of the body. I discovered that histamine is a vital chemical messenger in the brain. Histamine has a most important function not written about in medical textbooks. It is in charge of water intake and drought management in the body. It is less active when the body is fully hydrated, and becomes increasingly active when the body becomes dehydrated.
To hush the body’s call for water by masking the symptoms with drugs is like turning out the dashboard light that signal us that our car is about to overheat.”
“Every function inside the body is regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical massages to all parts of the body. Without sufficient water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of the body will not receive the vital elements that water supplies. Without sufficient water to constantly wet all parts, your body’s drought-management system kicks into action. The histamine-directed chemical messenger systems are activated to arrange a new, low quota of water for the drought-stricken area. When histamine and its subordinate “drought managers” come across pain-sensing nerves, they cause pain. This is why dehydration produces pain as its first alarm signal. If the dehydration persists and is not corrected naturally with water, it becomes symptom-producing and, in time, develops into a disease condition.”
- Your Body’s Many Cries for Water
The Water Cure
“The human body is composed of 25 percent solid matter and 75 percent water. Brian tissue is 85 percent water. When we starve body sells of water, they start to complain – and set up may adverse reactions.”
“Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirty is wrong. Pain in the body is a crisis call of the body for water. Thirst should be prevented. When body does not receive enough water and you have pain that is a sign of dehydration.”
“Chronic pain of the body which cannot easily be explained as injuries or infection should first and foremost be interpreted as signal of chronic water shortage in the area where the pain is registered. These pain signals should first be considered and excluded as primary indicators for dehydration of the body before any other complicated procedures are forced on the patient.”
“Once you understand how the human body works, the wonderful simplicity of water as a free and permanently available choice of medication for so many health problem begins to make sense.”
“I have to abandon some of my past learning and build a new landscape for the science of medicine in the future. Medicine has based its understanding that it is a solid matter in the body that regulates all functions of the body. I have explained scientifically at the molecular level that it is water that regulates all functions of the body including functions of solid matter. Without water, this solid matter is absolutely useless. It is water that energize and activates the solid matter. 75 percent of our bodies are composed of water. The brain is 85 percent water. Now if the solid matter is not active without water therefore water is more important than solid matter. And if you don’t take enough of water then some function of the body will begin to suffer. I am talking about system disturbance – dehydration produces multi-system upheaval.”
“This is new information based on science. It is simple information. The origin, design, of the human body is made on simple events. Integrating these simple events has producing an integrated body but the foundation of it is simplicity is based on water. Water is what it needs. The medical community has spent 100 years of money and time researching the solid matter. If they spent a quarter as much time and one tenth as much money on investigating dehydration, we will become a much healthier nation.”

Love is a Powerful Healer
“Love is a powerful healer—giving love or receiving it. There is an inherent insecurity that is associated with any disease, but especially cancer. When you love somebody, you want to survive to continue to be with that person. When you receive love, your body becomes energized and your immune system will lift its level of action in the fight against the disease. Love changes the chemical pathways of the brain, and this will affect your body’s resistance. The love of God, for those who believe in Him, has a similar effect.”
“Patients are not just their “disease conditions” or “insurance addition”; they are vulnerable human beings. Doctors or healers must freely project their feelings of empathy and sincerity in their dealings with the sick. It is just possible that empathy might be a stronger medication than anything they might prescribe.”
