Michael Grady, who invented the device in October, said that the device helps flush the body of undigested substances, which contribute to obesity. The body is inundated by processed food additives, medication, sugars and other substances that often cannot be digested when the body is dehydrated, or lacking water. The body requires water as a solvent to carry the undigested substances out of the body before they are stored in fatty tissue deposits.
The patented device, called the hydromotivator, is based on the written recommendation of a physician, Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, author of "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" (www.watercure.com). It acts to monitor the body's hydration levels throughout the day. Users are prompted to flush the body with water when the device indicates a dehydrated state. Toxins that would otherwise remain undigested in the body, and which contribute to obesity, might then be flushed out.
According to Grady, in addition to helping solve the obesity epidemic, the device also reduces the incidence of migraine headaches, hypertension, and high blood pressure, while relieving symptoms affiliated with diabetes.
