Book Review: Water The Ultimate Cure by Steve Meyerowitz

Probably the most important health building substance on the planet that almost everyone I meet is deficient in is water, and after reading this you may find out you are no exception. This book has really been an eye opener on just how important water is to our health, so lets get right to it!

The Ultimate Cure
By Steve Meyerowitz

I have read a few other books written by Steve "The Sproutman" Meyerowitz and am always amazed at how simply he is able to lay out the information he is trying to present, and do it in a way that just about anyone can understand. All of his books make for a quick read, and this one is no exception.

The forward on this book is done by someone who is in my opinion the authority on water used for transforming health, Dr F. Batmanghelidj MD. He has treated many different ailments using basically water alone for many years, and has done it quite successfully. He also has written a fantastic book on water called "Your Body's Many Cries For Water".

Water really is the stuff of life! If your not completely convinced of that yet then ask yourself a question. Why do we keep looking for it everywhere we go? Why does NASA spend so much effort and money every day just to find a hint of it on other planets? We are constantly in search for it. We build houses near it, take vacations to be close to it, are relaxed by the sound of it, and cleanse our bodies in it! Try living without it and you will very quickly find out how important it has become to you!

I want to go over a few of the facts presented in this book that blew me away. He states:

  • By weight we are about 67% water. If this percent drops by even 2% we become fatigued, if by 10% we begin to have significant health problems.
  • Women who drink more than 5 8oz glasses a day may reduce the chance of kidney & bladder cancer by 45%, while men may reduce the chances of prostate & testicular cancer by 32%
  • The average adult contains 40-50 qts of water or 10-13 gallons!
  • Blood = 83% Water
  • Brain = 75% Water
  • Muscle = 75% Water
  • Heart = 75% Water
  • Eyes = 95% Water
  • Lungs = 86% Water
  • Kidneys = 83% Water
  • Bones = 22% Water
  • There are over 75,000 compounds in municipal water from business, agriculture, industry, and consumer homes with more being added on a daily basis.
  • Fluoride, first introduced in municipal water in the 1940's, is currently banned in Sweden, Denmark, and Holland, and abandoned in Belgium and West Germany.
  • America still uses fluoride in our municipal water
  • America has the highest rates in tooth decay in the world!
  • One in six americans drinks water containing excess levels of lead.
To put it plainly we need to start thinking about our water intake more on a daily basis. But how much do we need to drink? You should be drinking at least half of your total body weight in ounces of water.

If you weigh 120 lbs
You drink 60 ounces of water daily

"But I do get that much! I just had a 64 ounce big gulp for lunch!" Hmmm... I hate to burst your bubble but NONE of that really counts for water as far as our body is concerned. When calculating this, you should not add any of your beverages that may contain caffeine or diuretics since they steal water from your body... You may also want to consider adding a few more ounces of water if your salt intake for the day has been high, not to mention potassium. (There is also a section in this book that he goes into detail about how to balance your salt and potassium intakes).

All in all this has been a great read for me, and I know it will be for you too. As stated on the back cover of the book, you will discover why your drinking habits may be the cause and cure of your:

  • Headaches
  • Lower back pain
  • Stress & Depression
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Excessive Weight
  • Overeating
  • Allergies & Asthma
  • Arthritic Pain
  • Insomnia & Fatigue

He also goes extensively into the many type of water filtration systems so that you are able to find out which type is right for you.
