He married Lucile, a Belgian, and they had four children: Ardeshir, Babak, Camila, and Lila, who committed suicide while he was imprisoned. His first marriage ended in divorce. He later married Xiaopo Huang Batmanghelidj.

He died from complications related to pneumonia on 15 November 2004.

Medical career

Batmanghelidj was trained at St Mary's Hospital Medical, and practiced medicine in the United Kingdom before his return to Iran.

He claimed that he discovered the medicinal value of water in treating the pain of peptic ulcers during his detention in prison by treating inmates with water when medication was not available. He advanced this position in a guest editorial in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology in 1983.

In 1992, he authored Your Body's Many Cries for Water. In this book, Batmanghelidj asserts that chronic dehydration is the root cause of most pain and many ailments, opposing the use of drugs to cure conditions that he claimed could instead be addressed by increased water consumption.

He has claimed elsewhere that water provides energy for the body and brain, by splitting into its component hydrogen and oxygen.


Batmanghelidj's theories have been criticised by Stephen Barrett, co-founder of the National Council Against Health Fraud and the webmaster of Quackwatch, on several grounds, including a lack of any documented peer-reviewed research and exaggerated claims about the number of patients treated successfully. He further questions that Batmanghelidj has practiced medicine in the United States, pointing to his lack of registration as a physician. He was licensed as a naturopath.
