“You’re not sick; you’re thirsty. Don’t treat thirst with medication.”
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj
Elan Sun Star is arguably the most published photographer in the world. Yes, I said that correctly. You can see his beautiful photographs on the covers of countless magazines. Many of his photos involve huge waves bashing the coast of various Hawaiian isles. I wonder if being around all that water has caused him to read 1200 books on water (over a 35 year period) while researching his own book on the same subject. Sun (as I call him) visited New Zealand from Hawaii in early 2008 and I had the privilege of interviewing him about, you guessed it, water.
Our hour long discussion ranged over some fascinating fronts, from Masaru Emoto to Dr. Batmanghelidj. As many of you know Masaru Emoto is the author of the bestselling book, The Hidden Message in Water, and other books on the subject of how water holds the emotional and mental imprints of human beings. He proves it with stunning photography. In the prologue to The Hidden Message in Water, Emoto writes that we are 99% water as fetuses and we are still 90% water when we are born. By the time we reach adulthood we are down to 70% water, roughly the same percentage as the planet we live on. If we die of old age we will probably be about 50% water. In other words, throughout our lives we are mostly water. Those numbers point to the fact that we are dehydrating during the course of our lives. Perhaps, we don’t die of disease or old age; it could be that we die of dehydration.
And that ties in with the basic premise of Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, M.D. In his book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, he writes, “I am a researcher. I have researched dehydration for the past 20 years. When I discovered that the solution to most of the disease conditions of our society is not a money maker, I decided to take my information to the public.
“My research revealed that unintentional dehydration produces stress, chronic pains and many degenerative diseases. Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong. Medicine has based its understanding that it is 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. 75 % of our bodies are composed of water. The brain is 85% water. It is water that energizes and activates the solid matter. If you don’t take enough water, some functions of the body will suffer. Dehydration produces system disturbances. When I use the word water cure, I am referring to curing dehydration with water.”
The work of Messieurs Emoto and Batmanghelidj is just a fraction of what Sun and I covered in the hour we had together for this interview. Listen to this fascinating talk that ranges over the work of such esteemed researchers as Patrick Flanigan and, of course, Victor Schaugerger, whose ground breaking and suppressed work is presented in Living Water, a book that really got me thinking in the early 1990s.
Finally, If you want to see something really interesting visit the following website:
www.shamanicvisions/ingerman. Sandra Ingerman and 60 others did an experiment. They sent out love and prayers to water that had a poison added to it. Afterwards it tested clear and all 60 people drank it. There must be ramifications here for dramatically improving polluted water sites around the world.
