is a thirst signal associated with chronic or severe dehydration in the human body . it can also exist in conjunction with other thirst pains of the body. Read Samuel Liguori's letter . He had both hiatal hernia and anginal pain. With water intake, one pain disappeared and the other diminished significantly after only one week.
Dyspeptic pain, no matter what other pathological label is attached to it, should be treated by regular sufficient intake of water. The current use of antacids and histamine-blocking agents is not to the benefit of a chronically dehydrated person whose body has resorted to crying for water.
One of the most misunderstood and upsetting conditions that is a complication of severe dehydration is bulimia. People who suffer this condition have constant "hunger." When they eat, they cannot retain food and have an uncontrollable urge to vomit. In these people, their "hunger" is, is in fact, an indicator of thirst, and their urge to vomit is the protection mechanism explain in another post in this blog. If bulimics begin to rehydrate their bodies well and drink water before they eat, this problem should disappear.
