Water therapy involves drinking one and a half liters of pure drinking water as soon as you wake up in the morning. Simply consume four to five glasses of water before brushing your teeth. Then brush and clean your teeth and eat your breakfast or drink your morning beverage after forty-five minutes. Lastly, ensure that you do not consume anything for two hours after every meal during the day.
Following this simple practice can cure migraines, get rid of allergies, improve your metabolism and provide myriad other health benefits. Here are a few health benefits that you can gain by practicing water therapy daily.
1) A complete toxin cleanse
Water has an amazing detoxifying effect on you as it easily flushes out toxins and maintains the pH balance of your body. Regularly practicing water therapy can do wonders for your skin by minimising acne and blemishes. It also improves your kidney functions by diluting toxins, making them easier for the kidneys to process.
2) Cures constipation
When you practice water therapy, you ready your stomach to fully absorb all the nutrients from the food you eat through the day. This leads to the proper breakdown and digestion of food making bowel movements easier and thereby preventing bloating and constipation. Water therapy results in a thorough wash out of your gastrointestinal tract, cleaning your digestive system of all toxic matter and getting it ready for the rest of the day.
3) Promotes weight loss
Adequate water intake not only improves digestion but also regulates your appetite. Often, you misinterpret your body’s signals of thirst for hunger and end up overeating. Water therapy helps you meet your body’s water requirement more effectively, thereby preventing you from eating more food than you need. Additionally, drinking water aids in new cell generation leading to muscle growth and weight loss.
4) Prevents dehydration
Many diseases are complex symptoms of dehydration. Often doctors misinterpret those secondary symptoms as unrelated diseases. Some of the diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, hypertension, sinusitis, kidney stones, asthma and irregular menstruation. Water therapy helps in preventing and curing these diseases and improves your overall health and well-being. Also, water therapy helps you stay energized throughout the day by maintaining your water reserves and preventing dehydration.
When you perform water therapy, you must remember to consume enough water during the day. Simply drinking a liter and half of water in the morning is not enough. Drink another six to eight glasses of water throughout the rest of the day to satisfy your thirst. In the beginning, drinking so much water at the start of the day might make you feel uncomfortable. You will also feel the urge to urinate more often than usual. But over a few days, your body will get accustomed to this change.
Soon you will begin to witness the amazing benefits of water therapy. In only a week or two, your skin will look and feel healthy and glowing from within. Your digestive functions will improve and you will find yourself feeling rejuvenated and energized throughout the day. So what are you waiting for? Keep your water bottle ready by your bedside tonight and start your day on a healthy note tomorrow.
