Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, who died of pneumonia in at the age of 73, claimed that dehydration is the underlying cause of many diseases, including some that the medical profession regards as incurable. His theories were embodied in 20 audiotapes, videotapes, books and other reports that he marketed.
Batmanghelidj did business as Global Health Solutions in Falls Church, Virginia, and operated the Foundation for the Simple in Medicine , a private nonprofit corporation located at the same address. According to a biographical sketch on his Web site:. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, M. He has spent most of his scientific life researching the link between pain and disease and chronic dehydration. Batmanghelidj discovered the healing powers of water 21 years ago when he was serving as a political prisoner in an Iranian jail.
He successfully treated 3, fellow prisoners suffering from stress-induced peptic ulcer disease with the only medication he possessed — water. This is when he understood for the first time in medical history that the body indicates its water shortage by producing pain. Since his prison experience, he has focused his full-time attention on dehydration-produced health problems in the body.
His discovery has helped hundreds of thousands of people suffering from a variety of pains and degenerative diseases regain their health .
In June of , he was released from prison. Several months later, he escaped from Iran and came to America to further research and eventually introduce his discovery in medicine to scientists and researchers in the United States. In , the Foundation for the Simple in Medicine was formed to foster research into this topic and become the vehicle for change in the present structure of medicine .
This claim is absolute nonsense. The only source of energy for humans are the calories in proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and alcohol.
Batmanghelidj claimed that he did more than 20 years of full-time research and that his findings achieved worldwide acclaim. Neither of these documents would be appropriately described as a research report. In an interview published on his Web site, Batmanghelidj stated that the British journal Lancet rejected a report he sent about treating ulcers with water, but the report was published in an Iranian medical journal. This journal is not indexed in Medline.
No respectable journal would even consider publishing the type of data Batmanghelidj claimed to have accumulated. Although he claimed to have treated people with ulcers, he conducted no x-ray examinations or other tests to confirm any such diagnosis. Although heartburn can sometimes be relieved by drinking water, there is no logical reason to believe that water can heal ulcers or do various other things that Batmanghelidj claims to have observed during his prison stay.
Even if his prison experience were considered research, nothing I have seen indicated that he has done any research since his release from prison in But as far as I can tell, he has not described any data acquired since he emigrated to the United States in Curious about whether Batmanghelidj has ever practiced medicine in the United States, I searched several databases.
Nor do the states of Pennsylvania or Virginia list him as being licensed within the past ten years. I did learn that he was registered as a naturopath in the District of Columbia, but I do not know whether he has used this registration to see patients. I have seen no mention of these reports in medical publication or on any science-based Web site.
