Every time you think about females from Japan, the image that appears in your mind is of a petite woman, right?
This is no coincidence because women from Japan with weight problems are rare. In the last few decades, through listening and reading about the Japanese culture, we have all come to the conclusion that the Japanese have a different type of diet. Notably, they also have a different lifestyle and daily routine than the greater part of Western civilization where people are constantly dealing with weight problems.
Perhaps this is due to the fact that humans seem to have lost their thirst sensation and the critical perception of needing water. Instead, the body’s biological thirst signals can be mistaken for signs and symptoms of other illnesses. Most often the root cause of this misperception is – dehydration. So, we can avoid costly and unnecessary medical interventions and enjoy a long-term wellbeing if we go in the opposite direction which is – hydration.
Further confusion results when the body produces complicated secondary symptoms of dehydration.
Many doctors often misinterpret those secondary symptoms as conditions unrelated to dehydration or dryness of the body. These conditions include, but are not limited to: dyspepsia, rheumatoid arthritis, angina, migraine and headaches, colitis, constipation, hypertension, anemia, obesity, sinusitis, pulmonary tuberculosis, asthma, kidney stones, diabetes, irregular menstruation, leukemia, uterine cancer, breast cancer.
What is the best way to hydrate our body?
Since Japanese people seem to have fewer problems than we do, we are going to reveal a “secret” of theirs and try to apply it to our everyday lives in order to improve our general health.
One of the things the Japanese never forget to do right after they get up in the morning is drink water on an empty stomach!
Drinking water first thing in the morning is a very effective healing routine since it creates a stimulating environment inside the body for eliminating numerous diseases.
Scientists have studied this seemingly insignificant “morning ritual” and have unanimously come to the conclusion that drinking water on an empty stomach eases different health problems such as: high blood pressure, cardiovascular disorders, gastritis, kidney problems, hemorrhoids and epilepsy. It also improves the general condition of the eyes and helps with uterine diseases, menstrual disorders, and many other health issues.
Thus, the main point of this article is to encourage you to try and incorporate this simplest water therapy into your morning routine.
This is how you can start applying it:
Each morning when you wake up and get out of bed, the very first thing you should do is drink about 640 ml (21 oz.) of water.
Over the next 45 minutes, do not consume any type of food or other liquids. Instead, continue doing your other practices like preparing your stuff for work or school. Only after 45 minutes can you start eating your usual breakfast
Elderly people and those who are suffering from certain diseases, and cannot drink 3 glasses of water on an empty stomach, should only reduce the amount of water to what their bodies can accept and slowly adapt their system to reach the recommended level – which is 640 ml (21 oz.)
If you manage to apply this Japanese practice, after a certain period of time you will begin to notice the first signs of improvement in your health parameters. You will also start feeling much more energetic and sturdier than you used to be.
As for how long should this “water therapy” last, the answer is: It depends on the kind of health problems you are beset with!
- If you are suffering from gastritis, continue your water drinking for 10 days.
- In case of constipation, you need 10 days.
- Diabetic patients need 30 days.
- High blood pressure takes 30 days to get back to normal readings.
- Patients with tuberculosis should have this morning drink of water for 90 days.
Once you have successfully introduced this “therapy” into your everyday routine, and felt the positive results, you should try to maintain it as long as possible. And it goes without saying that the better the quality of water you consume, the better the results you’ll experience from water therapy.
An exception should be made for those who are diagnosed with arthritis. They should apply it only for the first three days of the first week. In the following period (starting from the second week) they should do it regularly, every day of the week, just like all the others – Diet Of Life
