Medical Association & Drinking Water

drinking of water

Everyone knows that drinking water is essential to good health. But what most of us aren’t aware of is how drinking water with an empty stomach early in the morning is even more beneficial. This water therapy technique, which came from ancient Ayurvedic medicine, has been found to have wonderful therapeutic effects for the body.

Experts say that drinking water in the morning when the stomach is still empty is effective in purifying the internal system. It cleanses the colon, making the body more efficient in absorbing vitamins and minerals from food. Drinking water with an empty stomach also produces new blood which can help restore health and treat existing illnesses.

So here’s what you have to do to maximize the health benefits of this water therapy. First, drink a pint (or more if you can) when you wake up. That’s not even the full recommended 5 to 6 glasses of water. It may sound too much but you don’t really have to chug everything down at once. You can take a few minute breaks in between.

After that, don’t eat or drink for about an hour. It’s also a must not to drink any alcoholic beverage the night before. Of course, you need to ensure that the water you’re drinking is of good quality–fresh and clean.
