Did you know that Japanese people have a habit of drinking water immediately after waking up?
It’s an ancient tradition for healing many diseases that became very popular around World War 2 after being published in a Japanese newspaper. The advantages of drinking water on empty stomach immediately after waking up have been also backed up by many studies. It is a treatment that is proven to give excellent results in fighting many serious diseases.
Some of the difficulties this water treatment can help with are: headache, body aches, heart system, accelerated heart beat, epilepsy, blood fat, bronchitis, asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney disease and urinary tract, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, diseases of the uterus, menstrual disorders, diseases of the ear, nose and throat.
THIS IS HOW TO DO PERFORM THE WATER THERAPY:
As soon as you wake up in the morning, before brushing your teeth, drink 4 glasses (200 ml) of water. Wash your teeth, but do not eat nor drink anything in the next 45 minutes. After 45 minutes you can eat and drink as you would every day. After your breakfast, lunch or dinner do not eat or drink anything for the next two hours.
Those that are old and sick and unable to drink 4 glasses of water on an empty stomach, can begin with drinking water as much as they can, and then each day increase the amount until they reach the required 4 glasses of water . This method will help with many diseases, and a healthy person will enjoy the new energy acquired from the water therapy.
As the story goes, doing this method has the power to heal high blood pressure in 30 days, gastritis in 10 days, diabetes in 30 days, constipation in 10 days and will also make you feel much more energized and improve your entire body function.
This method should not only be used for helping with some of the diseases above, but should also be implemented as a part of your life. It has no side effects at all and it has the power to do wonders for your Health.
SIMILAR TRADITION IN INDIA (AND WHY IT CAN BE HARMFUL)
A similar tradition is also known in India. In Sanskrit, the practice is called Usha Paana Chikitsa, which roughly translates as ‘early morning water treatment’. The difference is that the Indian (Ayurvedic) version recommends drinking 1.5 liters of water on an empty stomach.
However, some warn against a rapid consumption of such a big amount of water. Our kidneys can only process 800 to 1,000 ml of water per hour, so drinking too much water can be dangerous.
Also, a condition known as hyponatremia can develop. This occurs when your bloodstream sodium levels lower to an unhealthy level. It can be due to a personal medical condition, but excess water consumption also leads to it. At low levels the condition is harmless.
If your kidneys cannot keep up with excess water intake, the extra water will dilute the concentration of sodium. As this happens, cells begin to stretch and things become potentially deadly…
Cells can normally expand with relative ease. Unfortunately the neurons in your brain cannot. Your brain cells work in an extremely confined space and have little room for swelling. If this happens from drinking too much water, it could result in a coma, seizure or even death.
Drinking too much water can be equally as dangerous as not drinking enough.
Japanese water therapy has no known side effects and contributes to a general state of well-being and health when incorporated into your daily routine. It’s been promoted by the Japanese Medical Society and many have embraced it (although I couldn’t find scientific evidence for the efficacy of this therapy like in many alternative medicines). But maybe it’s not a coincidence that Japan has proportionately the highest number of centenarians in the world.
