Dehydration causes obesity; water cure can break cycle


One of the worst problems in the U.S. is obesity and solving it is not even a challenge. Just follow Dr. Batmanghelidj’s free water cure.

Of course our mentality is to believe that if it is free then it is too good to be true, so it can’t be. Maybe the only way to get everyone to try it is to charge people for every pound they lose and then people will love it because they will be paying for only results. All people do now is continue to pay a ton of money for high profit non-solutions to obesity that have extremely low success rates.

The only real cure for obesity is to correct the cause and the cause is extreme dehydration, lack of water and electrolytes due to over use of caffeine and/or alcohol. I consider one glass over use. Bet you can’t find one single obese person who isn’t dehydrated.

The reason dehydration makes a person obese is when a person isn’t getting enough water, the brain will make you crave food to get the water from the food.

When you quit the caffeine and alcohol and consume enough water and salt your brain has no reason to keep you craving food so your weight falls off.

If you want the water and salt the medical way, just get saline IVs at $525 each or take them orally like many professional athletes do.

You can do a search on the Internet for “Saline IV Benefit Sports” and then do same for “Oral Saline IV Benefit Sports.” You will quickly learn why and how this works.

If it doesn’t work for you, email me at watercure2@comcast.net. When it does, tell everyone you can.

Remember, if it is from God it is free, has no side effects and it works. That describes the water cure.

Subject: Weight Loss

From: Donna Riviello... Old Forge, PA

To: Bob Butts

Dear Bob,I am sending you my incredible weight loss testimonial.I am a 50y old female,small frame and was a picky eater all my life. My weight ranged during my later years from 108-113 lbs. My max throughout these years was 117 lbs. I was bedridden for 2 years 2005-2007 with severe RSD pain and depression. During these 2 years I ate a few teaspoons of yogurt for breakfast, No lunch, and supper was 4 graham crackers with peanut butter & jelly with a glass of milk. That was it far 2 years straight & I gained weight! I realize now that the weight gain was due to not enough food, medications, inactivity,no vitamins, nutrients & No Water....Dehydration! They say" you are what you eat" Well that is certainly true...I was a Dry Crumbling Cracker!

Through these years I have always been a "weight watcher" concerned if I had gained wieght & getting depressed over it. I had trouble loosing weight ever since I can remember. I have tried all the weight loss gimmicks on the market such as : dexatrim,slim fast, Oprah's green tea, the Newest Hoodia Patch & STARVATION. None of them ever worked. It would take me 6 months to loose 3 lbs & if I ate like a "normal person" for 2 days I would gain the 3 lbs plus more back! When I started the Watercure May 19, 2007 I weighed 128 lbs! That was 11bls over my all time max of 117 lbs! I started drinking my proper amount of seasalt & water & as YOU advised started eating a more nutritous diet. I am now eating much more food than I used to & taking vitamins. Within 4 weeks to the day of starting the Watercure I lost 11 lbs ! And within 3 months I lost a total of 28 lbs! I now weigh 100 lbs ! That was my pre-children/pre-Old Age weight! When you are in chronic pain 24/7 depression easily sets in. For me the added weight only made me even more depressed! The Watercure has surely made me a happier/healthier person. I feel better than I have in years!.. thank you God, Bob & Dr. Batmanghelidj ...peace & healing .......Donna Riviello

Fine Tuning the Water Cure For Maximun Weight Loss

Question:  Why do we need to replace fluids lost from the body by drinking plenty of water?

Answer:  Our bodies are mostly made up of fluids.  These fluids need to be replaced daily because:

Approximately three pints of water per day are lost through the kidneys

Approximately one pint of water per day is lost through the skin in perspiration

A further pint is lost through breathing and vaporization

Question:  What happens if we do not replace this lost fluid in our bodies on a daily basis?

Answer:  The body will seek out the replacement fluids it needs from the undigested sludge sitting in the intestines, waiting to be eliminated.

Question:  What effect will that have on the body?

Answer:  As water is withdrawn from this sludge, the fecal matter becomes harder, resulting in constipation.  The body will retain water to dilute these toxic substances and bloating and weight gain will occur.  Because the water from the undigested sludge is dirty, when it is re-circulated throughout the body, it will increase  the toxins in the body.  This can lead to feelings of tiredness and lethargy, and the body will be more vulnerable to infection .

Question:  How many glasses of water should we drink every day?  How can we increase our daily intake?

Answer:  Drink two glasses of water first thing in the morning and last thing at night, as a reminder. Carry water in your car, and keep a glass at your desk, so you can sip throughout the day.  The amount of water you consume will soon add up to the recommended 8 to 10 glasses a day. Replace soft drinks and cordials with plain, room-temperature water. Aim to increase your daily intake slowly, over time, and be prepared to urinate more frequently, as you body flushed out toxins.

Question:  What are the benefits?

Answer:  You will experience greater feelings of well-being, fewer illnesses, an increase in your energy level, fewer weight problems, and a healthy digestive system that is free of constipation.

It is much easier to lose 50 or more pounds than 10 or 20. That’s because when a person doesn’t drink much water and/or drinks caffeinated or alcoholic drinks that take water out of the body creating a greater water shortage, the body will create hunger in order to get the water from the food. The result is tremendous weight gain. Just as soon as that person starts drinking a lot of water, the hunger cravings start to subside. Therefore, it is easy to lose weight when you aren’t hungry and the pounds fall off and you don’t need a diet. It is always better to cut back on grains as they are what farmers do to their cattle to fatten them up. With your new found energy, you’ll find it easy to do the best exercise, walking.

An update for you. After one year plus, I have lost almost 60 pounds. It's to the point where my friends and family think i am too skinny, but I feel great! I now weigh about 168 and am able to run, nearly 3 to 4 miles a day, sometimes up to 6. I could never run before as my knees and legs always hurt. Drinking water has helped me to live a healthier life, that's for sure! I plan to keep drinking H 2 O and keep up with the sea salt as well.

I used to drink coffee all day long and pop, 2 to 3 cans a day. I now drink only 2 cups of coffee in the morning and have an occasional pop as a treat before supper.

I seemed to hit plateaus in weight loss and then lose 10-12 pounds at a shot. However, I do not care to lose much more weight so I am going to try make sure I eat enough complex carbohydrates to maintain a steady of weight of 165 with my exercise plan.

To: Bob Butts

I am using the Water Cure as suggested by Dr. B’s book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water. I have drunk four quarts of water per 24 hours with ¼ teaspoon of wet, grey Celtic Sea Salt per quart. I have accomplished the following in about a year: My starting weight was 220 lbs. at a height of 5’7”. I was too fat. My weight is now 168 lbs. I had continual arthritic aches and pains which have all but disappeared unless there is a low pressure (barometric) area. Then the arthritic pains come back and let me know that there is going to be a weather change. I can live with that!

Keep up the good work!

“The whole thing was a breeze,” Steve Kreger, Danville.

310 pound Steve Kreger of Danville heard from a friend about how easy it was to lose weight by following the watercure. He decided he also would give it a try, thinking to himself, what do I have to lose, other than a lot of weight?  He had little or no energy and was a diabetic. Soon after starting

the watercure Steve found himself feeling great with unexplained energy, he was out playing with his five children and his whole life changed for the better.  Within four months he lost eighty pounds and in a little over a year he lost another fifty pounds for a grand total of 130 pounds. He did all this without going on a diet. With his new found energy, he is very active and has easily maintained his weight at 180 pounds without effort for about three years.  Once he got rid of his addiction to Diet Mountain Dew, everything else was easy.

It took Steve 4 – 5 months till his blood/sugar readings normalized.  He is now free of all symptoms of diabetes and takes no medication.

Conclusion:  “I tried many diets and nothing worked, but the free watercure totally changed my life.”  Steve Kreger.

Greetings Connie and Bob

First thanks for the tapes and reading material.

 Well we have been on the water/salt for 3 months now. Yes, there have been changes, subtle at first but now evident.

For example, Janet and I lost 3 and 4 kgs respectively. Janet now has her dimples in her cheeks again. They have not been evident for several years. We are both feeling lighter and more alive inside ourselves. We are coping with some added pressures a lot better than we would normally have done. Janet is now walking every second day for about 3 kms, without feeling knocked out.

We shared this concept of water and salt with one of our daughters. She has been taking Eve of Primrose for some time now for tender breasts. She stopped the tablets and has been on the water for 7 days. No soreness, a feeling of life has returned.  She has passed the message onto another of our daughters and we will see what will happen.

Thanks to the good Doctor. Thanks to yourself for taking the message to the people.

Stay happy and keep up the great work.

I have joined the water cure "crusade" spreading the word. I have done a write up at my Gourmet Garden site and added the link to our site, and sent the link out to my mailing list. I guess I should have asked permission first but somehow have the feeling you would approve. There's no marketing at my site neither. 

After about ten days of the water and salt I feel fantastic. I also quit sugar and coffee and it really helps. I am losing my big belly so rapidly my pants are falling off of me. Thanks for sharing and caring.

I want you to know how much I appreciate your "Water Cure". Share this testimonial to help others make healthier lifestyle changes Your book has changed my life forever! Thank you! 

In August of 1995, at age fifty, I found myself approaching 400 pounds. I swore to myself I would never hit 400. Life became a very painful experience. Every move I made was a painful episode as I struggled to survive. I also began having arthritic pains in my joints, so much that just shaking someone’s hand was a unbelievably painful experience. Topping it off was a slipped disc in my back, so you can imagine just getting out of bed was a major effort. 

I began getting depressed and irritated. I would find more things wrong than right with myself and others. At that point, I hit my pain threshold and that's when I came across a radio program with your message on wellness with water. Thank GOD for hearing this message. I heard about your book on that program and decided to read it. After reading it I decided to make some drastic changes in my life, which I did. My weight leveled off at 399 pounds. Then it started dropping. The more I drank water and ate salt, the better I felt, and the better I looked. I lost a total of 156 pounds and reduced 14 pant sizes. And I did this by drinking the amount of water you recommend, using table salt and walking. 

Since losing the weight, I no longer have the stress on my joints and my back feels great. If you told me a year ago that I could feel this great, I would say you're crazy! But it worked and I am living proof. I find myself telling everyone I can about your book and the greatest health discovery in history! I hope this letter will help others to try your cure, water and salt. It makes so much sense and it's so simple. I hope people will just try it for their own health sake instead of becoming addicted to every medicine out there. Thank you very mush for your discovery!

Our E.A.P. specialist has been on the water program for about seven weeks. He weighed in at 295; he’s presently lost 40 pounds; he’s lost all traces of diabetes; his asthma has been noticeably relieved, and his skin has improved.  

He now plays golf without back pain, and incidentally, this is very important to him. He’s the biggest enthusiast we have and, as you know, as an E.A.P. specialist he’s in the field contacting the people covered by our Insurance Trust daily, in that his specialty is drug addiction and alcoholism. He’s taken many of our tapes, quite a few of our books, and is promoting the program personally.         

I’ve been on the program for quite a while, and I feel that my indigestion has improved, my taste far more precise, and overall I feel it’s working. 

The same situation holds true for Phil Grisafi, our insurance Manager, a young guy in his thirties, and to my knowledge, he’s very, very, pleased with the results of the water cure so far. Will keep you posted. Once again, thank you for all your efforts and dedication.

For most of my life I had been overweight. Every family has a "fat Child", and this was me. I was told that I was just "big boned" and I should be content with who I was.

Then I heard about watercure.

I was skeptical at first but thought that all I really had to lose was my weight. Over the period of a year and a half, I lost approximately 100 pounds and am no longer the "fat kid" that everyone knew.

But besides for losing weight, I have noticed that my acid reflux, which had been a MAJOR part of my life, had now gone. I could now enjoy foods that previously had brought me nothing but sickness.

I have also noticed that I no longer get ear infections which also seemed commonplace to me at one time.

So not only did lose almost 100 pounds, but also of acid reflux and ear infections, both of which seem inevitable problems of life. Also, I have more energy and feel as if I have become a whole new person. I have the energy to do the things which would easily worn me out previously.
