Water plays other important roles in the body than just being a unique solvent, and means of transport. Hydrolysis, or hydroelectric energy (voltage gradient) is generated at the cell membrane, and is stored in the form of ATP. This is used for elemental (cation) exchanges, particularly in neurotransmission. Another important function of water is that of forming a specific structure pattern that is utilized as the adhesive material in the bondage of the cellular architecture.

The brain cells manufacture products that are delivered to their target in the nerve endings for use in the communication of messages on "waterways." According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, there appears to be micro-streams along the length of nerves that "float" the packaged materials along "guidelines," called microtubules. Enzymes and proteins are more functional in an optimally hydrated environment-this is true of all cell membrane receptors. On the contrary, enzymes and proteins operate with less efficiency in a dehydrated state.

It is becoming more obvious that sub-clinical, and clinical dehydration activates the histamine directed neurotransmitter system which promotes water intake, and management. With this system intact, water that is in circulation can be recirculated or can be drawn away from other areas. In addition, prostaglandin's, kinins, renin-angiotensin, and Vasopressin are subordinate systems employed as the intermediary agents. It is important to remember that there are no water reservoirs the body can pull from, rather it operates a priority distribution system commensurate to water intake, and uptake.

It is interesting to note that in amphibian species, histamine production becomes pronounced when the animal is dehydrated. However, under normal circumstances, production is minimal. Dr. Batmanghelidj states, "For rationing regulation of the available water in dehydrated animals, drought management---the naturally coupled response is a proportionate increase in the production rate, and storage of the neurotransmitter---histamine. When they come across pain-sensing nerves in the body, histamine, and its' subordinate water intake, and distribution regulator's, prostaglandin's, kinins, and PAF (another associated agent) also cause pain." Based upon this new shift in thinking, many times, chronic pain caused by excessive histamine production could indeed be the direct result of water shortage in the body, and should be treated as such.
