Book Title: The Water Prescription
10/23/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France: "The Water Prescription - Christopher Vasey
I read a great book on the same subject, water, a while ago. [[ASIN:0446690740 Water: For Health, for Healing, for Life: You're Not Sick, You're Thirsty! gave me a lot of useful information but somehow, although we think that there is not much to know about water other than the fact that we should drink 2 liters a day, I felt compelled to read a bit more and I was right! I have to say that I wasn't sure that one could add a lot of information to the book of Dr. Batman's book but boy, was I wrong .. This book is very well written without repetitions, which are one of the biggest problems of modern books! Especially the chapter on mineral and spring waters is very interesting; it gives the reader information about mineral and spring water in a number of countries. Then there are lists for those interested in for example waters rich in calcium, waters rich in magnesium, waters rich in silica, waters rich in iron, manganese, lithium, etc. There are several cures according to what you want to achieve. You have for example the Hydration and Deacidification Remedy if you want to deacidify the internal cellular environment of the body, Hydration and Remineralization Remedy, etc. One thing I didn't understand was how one finds out if one suffers from extracellular thirst or intracellular thirst. Without knowing that one doesn't know whether to add salt to the drinking water or not. I read that chapter several times but I still don't understand how to decide which thirst one suffers from. As far as cholesterol goes I think that it is now fully known that the food one eats doesn't change a thing in the amount of cholesterol in the body. There are a few very interesting books on this matter! If the liver makes a lot more cholesterol than we will ever be able to eat why do experts still go on telling us that the food we eat does influences the amount of cholesterol in the body? Very annoying! The bottom line is that we need to be very well informed and not take all the official information we get from governments for granted, like drink 2l of water a day! I started drinking much more water and started having health problems at the same time so even with water one needs to be careful and needs to know what one is doing!"
