I have yet to read this book personally, everything I'm about to say is second hand from my dad who read the book and went on to give it to everyone in our family. The title is "Your Body's Many Cries For Water" by F. Batmanghcelidj, MD. Basically he was born in Iran, studied medicine in London, went back to Iran and before the revolution of 1979 was working to improve medical conditions there. Then he was put in prison and as a dr. left in charge of caring for the prisioners, but had no supplies. He went on to cure many different problems including ulcers, heartburn, back pain, arthritis, colitis pain, anginal pain, asthma, migraine headaches, hypertension and helped people lose weight... all with water and salt. He eventually was released from prison (alot of his research and curing was after he was released) and continued to research and write on the benefits of water. In the book there is a formula to figure out how much water each person needs on a daily basis, which I'm sorry I can't find at the moment, I will try to post it later.
As I said, I've not read it yet, but my dad has told everyone he knows, and some he doesn't, about it- and all who have tried it have been duly impressed.
This may be more than you were looking for, but it may be worth a look otherwise.
I also understand exclusively bf babies don't need water, and that it can even be bad for them- again- I don't have the article I read that in- :mad: I seem to be a great source of things I heard!!!
