We all know that the one element that can make or break your detox success, is the amount of water you consume on a daily basis. Water helps to transport nutrients and vitamins to cells, takes the strain off you filtration organs and also speeds up toxin removal. It can even help you lose weight!
How drinking water can improve your health?
What’s the point of detoxing if you are not going to drink the water to flush it out of your body? Water also energizes us and can even improve your quality of sleep and endurance during sports activities. The biggest fear some have about water intake is that if they are already struggling with water retention, that putting extra in will only make matters worse. It is quite the opposite, the more you drink, the less you’ll store as a free influx of fluid will signal your organs that it doesn’t need to hold on to excess fluids for important body functions as there is more coming in. An average intake should be around 2 to 3 liters per day. The temperature of the water also plays a role, as the warmer it is, the easier your body can utilize and expel it.
To increase your water drinking mojo, read this interesting Japanese belief on what water can assist you with and also their special method of drinking nature’s best!
It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking in the morning. Scientists have also proven its value for treating old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses. The Japanese medical society has found that it is a 100% cure for the following diseases:
Headache, Body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fat, bronchitis, asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting and gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb cancer and menstrual disorders, ear, nose and throat diseases.
Method of Treatment:
- As you wake up and before brushing your teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water.
- Brush teeth and clean mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes.
- After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
- After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch or dinner, do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours – you can drink straight after a meal (within the first 15 minutes) but not for 2 hours after that.
- Those that are old and sick and cannot consume 4 x 160ml in the morning, may take water throughout the day in small quantities until they can build up to the recommended amount.
It is also recommended that we adopt their culture of drinking hot liquid such as soup after a meal as they believe that drinking a cold liquid will solidify the grease in the intestines, leading to toxin build-up.
Interesting concept and definitely worth a try, even if just to motivate you to drink your daily water intake!
