10 “Diseases” of Chronic Dehydration


Dehydration can be a root cause of many kinds of “diseases” and pain. It is estimated up to 75% of Americans are chronically thirsty, but may have lost the ability to recognize it!
Sometimes pain indicates a chronic lack of water in your body’s tissue. In his book: Your Body’s Many Cries for Water–You’re Not Sick; You’re Thirsty, Dr. F. Batmanghelidj states his opinion that dehydration is the number one stressor of the human body, and that often pain is your body’s cry of thirst.

Arthritis and low back pain are signs of water shortage in the joints, spinal column and disks. Treating arthritis and low back pain with pain-killers, manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time, produce osteoarthritis, deformity of the spine and crippling deformities of the limbs when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually all died.

Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body.

Asthma occurs when the body obstructs the free passage of air so that water does not leave the body in the form of vapor. Increased water and salt intake will prevent asthma attacks and help break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out of the air sacs.

Adult-onset diabetes is another adaptive state to severe dehydration. To have adequate water in circulation and for the brain’s priority water needs, in diabetes, only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages.

Heartburn is a major thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage. Treating heartburn with antacids and pill medications will, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and eventually cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.

Colitis pain is a signal of water shortage in the large intestine, as it constricts to squeeze the last drop of water from the excrement. Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration can lead to persistent constipation, fecal impacting, diverticulitis, hemorrhoids and polyps, and appreciably increases the possibility of developing cancer of the colon and rectum.

Angina is a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis, and can be treated with increased water intake.

Hypertension is the body’s adaptation to generalized drought, when there is not enough water to fill all the blood vessels that diffuse water into vital cells. Water and some salt intake will bring blood pressure back to normal. Treating hypertension with diuretics that further dehydrate the body will, in time, cause blockage by cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries that go to the brain, heart attacks, small or massive strokes, kidney disease, brain damage, and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.

High cholesterol levels are an indicator of early drought 
management by the body. Cholesterol is a clay-like material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them against losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a “shield” against water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their cell membranes.
Obesity can be an adaptation to chronic dehydration. When you don’t have enough water in your body to process waste, the body protects itself by storing excess toxins in fat cells. Water provides hydroelectric energy to your cells, but if there isn’t enough water to create that energy, your body creates hunger pangs to get you to provide food as a secondary source of energy. This is why thirst is often confused with hunger.

“I drink water all day long, but I’m still dehydrated!”
This is a common complaint, and typically indicates a lack of  Sulfur.  The cell walls lose their pliability, and as a consequence don’t easily allow water and oxygen through. Sulfur will help you hydrate your cells, bringing oxygen and nutrients in and transporting wastes out.
