Occasionally, Vidyya comes across an item of controversy that seems like something in which our readers might have an interest. This is the case with http://www.watercure.com, where according to F. Batmanghelidj, MD, the cause of much pain and suffering is dehydration. According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, dehydration is at the root of a host of conditions from hypertension to lupus. Fact or fiction? We at Vidyya don't know, but we thought our readers might like to make up their own minds.
Many are willing to believe in the water cure. Dr. Batmanghelidj is the authour of two widely-circulated books in alternative circles, 'Your Body's Many Cries for Water' and the newly released 'ABC of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus'. In these books, research on the dramatic preventative and curative effects of increased water intake is imparted to readers. To date, what has now been coined "The Water Cure" has hundreds of thousands of patientes that say the cure has improved their health
and their ability to overcome challenging diseases.

Dr. Batmanghelidj first realized the importance of water as a political
prisoner in his native Iran. He found that he was able to treat the pain of a
fellow prisoner's peptic ulcer with water. He subsequently treated 3,000 more
ulcer sufferers -- his findings on the medical efficacy of water were
published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology (as a book review) and the New York Times
