TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Mercola article: Case Against Drinking 6-8 Glasses of Water a Day

Dr. Margaret McCartney, a general practitioner from Scotland, says that the common health advice that you should drink six to eight cups of water each day is “thoroughly debunked nonsense”. She argues that it is propagated by bottled water companies out to make a profit.

In a commentary, McCartney quoted experts who say that drinking too much water can cause hyponatremia (low sodium levels in the blood).

According to the Los Angeles Times:
“Experts were quick to pounce on the commentary as being misleading ... The answer isn’t cut and dry, says an article by the Mayo Clinic, and depends on your exercise level, health conditions and the heat and humidity of your environment. In general, the Institute of Medicine recommends about nine cups of beverages for women and 13 cups for men ... Most people do well to drink when they’re thirsty.”

healing


Dr. Batmanghelidj practiced medicine in the United Kingdom before returning to Iran where he played a key role in the development of hospitals and medical centers. He also helped establish sport projects for youth in Iran, including The Ice Palace in Tehran, the first ice skating and sports complex in the Middle East.
When the Iranian Revolution broke out in 1979, Dr. Batmanghelidj was placed in the infamous Evin Prison as a political prisoner for two years and seven months. It was there he discovered the healing powers of water. One night, Dr. B. had to treat a fellow prisoner with crippling peptic ulcer pain. With no medications at his disposal, Dr. Batmanghelidj gave him two glasses of water. Within eight minutes, his pain disappeared. He was instructed to drink two glasses of water every three hours and became absolutely pain free for his four remaining months in the prison. Dr. Batmanghelidj successfully treated 3,000 fellow prisoners suffering from stress-induced peptic ulcer disease with water alone. While in prison he conducted extensive research into the medicinal effects of water in preventing and relieving many painful degenerative diseases. Evin proved an ideal “stress laboratory,” and despite his being offered an earlier release, Dr. Batmanghelidj chose to stay an extra four months in prison to complete his research into the relationship of dehydration and bleeding peptic ulcer disease. The report of his findings was published as the editorial of the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology in June 1983. The New York Times Science Watch reported this discovery on June 21, 1983.
On his release from prison in 1982, Dr. Batmanghelidj escaped from Iran and went to America. At the Foundation for the Simple in Medicine he began to research the effect of chronic unintentional dehydration on the human body. His findings were published in the Foundation’s “Journal of Science in Medicine Simplified” in 1991 and 1992.
Dr. F. Batmaghelidj wrote his first self-help book “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water” in 1992, in which he stated that a dry mouth is not a reliable indicator of dehydration. The body signals its water shortage by producing pain. Dehydration actually produces pain and many degenerative diseases, including asthma, arthritis, hypertension, angina, adult-onset diabetes, lupus and multiple sclerosis. Dr. Batmanghelidj’s message to the world is, “You are not sick, you are thirsty. Don’t treat thirst with medication.”
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj devoted the last 20 years of his life promoting public awareness of the healing powers of water. He appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs and lectured around the world. He has left a body of valuable works of six books and more than a dozen educational audio and video seminars. His work has created an international community that has embraced the natural healing of the water cure. His ground-breaking book “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water” has been translated into 15 languages and continues to inspire readers all over the world.
Dr. F. Batmanghelidj died of complications from pneumonia on November 15, 2004, in Virginia, [sign in to see URL]. He was 73.

hydration and diet


Diet is a great determinator of how much liquids one is required to consume. The advice to drink 8 glasses of water [or 2 liters/quarts] a day is bad advice for at least 2 very important reasons:
- one should focus on drinking IN THE MORNING and certainly not be drinking randomly all through the day [like after meals!]
- if your diet is low on grains, proteins, and fats you need nor should not be drinking such quantities.

Douglas Graham mentioned in an interview that he might drink a gallon of water in a month. That's because he's a rawfood vegan. Such people consume loads of foods that are at least 95% water, not only giving the body lots of liquids but also liquids that the body can easily assimilate.

Grains and proteins are commonly notorious [i.e. it's common knowledge that they pose this problem] for demanding a lot of water to digest. The more grains you eat, the more your body needs liquids to deal with them. Yes, they contain liquids (in their cooked forms) but they also REQUIRE liquids to deal with. It's quite simple: if you cut out grains, you will need to drink much less.

Being properly hydrated is a big deal for all lifeforms but perhaps for humans especially it's a big deal; considering the book Born to Run and the science associated with it, human beings are runners that excell because of our ability to SWEAT. We can run deer to death because it will overheat after a few hours, even though it is much faster than us. This is our niche in nature. Dogs, horses, pigs sweat as well and we won't be running those down (unless we can access water supplies that they can't). Our ability to drink and sweat is part of who and what we are, biologically speaking. And one might muse that because we CAN, we also SHOULD...

Mainstream publications tend to speak to mainstream habits and circumstances. The mainstream advice to drink a lot of water, as well, applies to people who eat and live in accordance with mainstream values. Such include eating a lot of dairy, meat, and bread/pasta, as well as fats that find their way into almost everything (because it makes them taste better). If you adhere to a diet that lies outside the mainstream, then such mainstream advice is moot.


When you wake up is a good time to drink water, depending of course on what you were eating the previous evening and day(s).
Half an hour before a (cooked) meal is another appropriate time to have some water.

Some meals take a long time to digest because people mix proteins, fats, and carbohydrates; as long as the meal is still being processed it would be inappropriate to drink water; better then to have some carrot juice, for example. Tea, as well, would be bad, whereas the saturated nature of (strong) coffee makes it more appropriate than water or tea.

Quality of water can make a HUGE difference. I personally find it almost impossible to drink down a glass of tap water, even after i wake up in the morning; distilled water, on the other hand, makes it possible for me to drink down as much as a liter. I have therefore been drinking distilled water for over 15 years.
Water bottled in plastic bottles is also problematic; plastic bottles are blown and immediately filled with water, i.e. before the plastic has been allowed to settle (which would actually take a year!) The water put into freshly blown plastic containers therefore absorbs all kinds of detrimental chemicals into it. Consuming such water on a regular basis fundamentally undermines hormonal balances in the body through the xeno-estrogens that mimic natural (female) hormones.

external hydration factors


Just spending a month in summer in Morocco, i was reminded of the severity of hydration importance in warm weather.
Morocco in summer just underlined for me the importance of not WASTING what liquids your body needs on digesting inappropriate foods.
The supply of fresh fruit in Morocco was astounding. There are hawkers everywhere offering wonderfully on-the-tree ripened fruit: figs, grapes, prickly pears, bananas [not so cheap], watermelon, melon, and much much more of course (in market places). Not only is the fruit cheap and abundant, but the taste is many times better than that of fruit commonly accessible in northern Europe (since intensive agriculture isn't commonplace in Morocco yet).
Morocco in summer is a time and a place to eat as a fructarian. Not from idealism but from necessity, from health requirements. It's actually quite simple: either the hot summer months are a unique opportunity to 'fruit fast' and enjoy the weather that calls out to stuff yourself with fruit and generally eat little, or the summer months are the opposite: a time when you continue a (typically Moroccan) diet heavy in dairy, fats, meat, and bread and suffer months of dehydration while your body tries to cope with a cold weather diet in hot weather.

So the most important part of hydration for most people is to not WASTE water. It is not dissimilar to how it's insane to eat junk food and hope that a handful of superfoods will somehow balance it all out. One might see it like:
- bad habits: -1
- bad habits + good habits: 0
- good habits: 1
In other words: you aren't achieving anything by undermining good habits by bad ones. At best you'll manage to keep standing still. If you've a history of bad (eating) habits, this means that you'll stay in the red.
This relates to the above hydration issue as:
- mainstream diet in summer: -2
- mainstream diet (in summer + fruit): -1
- mainstream diet + fruit: 0
- fruit diet in summer: 1

It's possible for a person to die of dehydration in a matter of hours. If it's hot and dry out and there's a wind, this is a very real danger. Obviously this means that dehydration to any degree is a very serious matter in hot and/or dry circumstances.
Having said all that, if you are in a cold wet climate but eating meat, fats, and grains without drinking or eating enough liquids (in appropriate fashion), dehydration may not come as quickly but will be just as real a threat to your overall health, particularly if real hydration is never truly accomplished (and toxins build up incessantly).

In the end a person enjoying a fruit diet in the extreme African summers will be better off than someone in the cold and snow who is consuming loads of proteins, fats, and grains, all the time disregarding the hydration requirements that go along with such a diet. So external factors are neither necessarily a threat, nor are they a greater danger than poor dietary habits. However, when one combines poor dietary habits with hot dry weather, one is inviting into one's life all of the detrimental effects associated with (serious and acute) dehydration.
