In Japan it is customary to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Japanese follow an effective and simple health treatment called water therapy approved by the Medical Association of Japan (Japan Medical Association).
The Japanese medical society claim that this therapy (water therapy) is effective at combating and preventing the following diseases / symptoms:
- Headaches and body
- cardiac system
- Arthritis, fast heartbeat
- Epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma
- Tuberculosis, meningitis, kidney disease and urinary
- Vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids,
- Diabetes, constipation
- All eye diseases
- menstrual disorders
- Diseases of ear nose and throat.
I really like this therapy because it is in tune with my own recommendation for getting plenty of fluids, especially drinking water early in the morning to lose weight .
Also drinking water is simple, inexpensive and has no adverse effects besides detox symptoms. These can be felt when the body begins to eliminate toxins, but if you do the water therapy along with our bentonite smoothie, the detox symptoms will be much milder
- On waking up (particularly in the morning) drink 22 ounces (650 ml) of water. Sip this slowly.
- Now you can brush and clean your teeth, but do not eat anything for at least 45 minutes.
- After 45 minutes, you can eat and drink as you normally do.
- Do not drink or eat anything for two hours after breakfast, lunch or dinner.
- If you can not drink four glasses at the beginning, start with less and build up gradually.
The water should be at room temperature or warm, preferably to avoid the dangers of drinking cold water . It can not contain fluoride or other chemicals, so if you live in the US or anywhere where they add chemicals to water, I recommend you buy a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00004SU18″ locale=”US” tag=”wonderfullyno-20″]water filter.[/easyazon_link] 77777
As a rule of thumb, consume half our weight in ounces of liquid every day and adapt this amount depending on how active or sedentary you may be. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, it’s recommended you drink about 100 ounces (2.95 liters) of water / liquid a day. So those who think that 22 ounces (0.65 liters) is overkill, please look into how much water you should drink a day There’s a great article here that goes into detail on this.
If you feel that the water is very “boring” for you or want to make it more interesting, add flavor and increase the effect of this therapy, you need to read the article on Warm Water and Lemon. That Sour, Sour Goodness .
Water therapy has no negative side effects, aside from going to the bathroom a lot, ( for those people who are not used to this). You may also feel symptoms of detoxification (detox), this is 100% normal and occur when the body is removing toxins, or combating harmful organisms. Among the symptoms that you may experience in the detoxification process they are: itching, dizziness, nausea, headache, upset stomach, cravings, diarrhea, fatigue, tiredness, feeling discouraged, moodiness among others. ut as I said earlier, you can help elivate at least some of these by combining this with clay smoothie (taken at least 45 minutes after water on waking)
Don’t worry, not everyone suffers from these detox symptoms, and if it happens, usually it’s just one or two symptoms. The duration can vary from a few days to a few weeks depending on how much need to be removed from your body.
Enjoy the benefits of your water therapy and let us know your results!
