Water Therapy and its Benefits

For a start, 70% of our body is made up of water, so it’s essential to keep it fresh and topped up to keep the body working properly. When the body’s water requirement is not met, it has a variety of negative short-term and long-term health consequences.water-vs-soda-500x270

Long-term dehydration can lead to rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, angina, colitis, dyspepsia, hypertension, obesity, haemorrhoids, breast cancer, pulmonary tuberculosis, kidney stones, sinusitis, and uterine cancers!

To satisfy thirst, drink water

According to Kidney Health Australia website, the human body can last weeks without food but only days without fluid. Water is the recommended fluid to satisfy thirst – and it is nature’s choice.

Choosing water as your preferred drink will have a positive impact on your health. Water has a huge list of health benefits and it contains no kilojoules, is inexpensive and readily available. Water can also contain fluoride, which is good for your teeth. Choosing to drink water and being careful about your fluid intake can help keep your kidneys healthy.

Listen to your thirst

Your body will tell you when you are thirsty. Keep in mind that being thirsty is often a sign of already being dehydrated.

There is no ‘right’ amount of water to drink each day. The recommended amount of fluid depends on many factors.

You may need to drink more water if you:

  • are exercising
  • are in a hot or humid climate
  • have a health condition such as a kidney stone (but note that some conditions such as being on dialysis mean that you have to drink less water)
  • are pregnant
  • are breast-feeding

Advantages of Drinking Water in the Morning

Surely you have heard this before.

… that drinking water in the morning immediately upon waking up can have amazing therapeutic effects for a multitude of health conditions—ranging from pain to asthma to cancer?

According to the Undergroundhealthreporter, this remarkable water therapy originates from ancient Ayurvedic medicine. In Sanskrit, the name for the practice is Usha Paana Chikitsa, which roughly translates to “early morning water treatment.”

Can Water Wash Away Disease?

It has long been known that drinking water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach purifies the body’s internal system. An especially important result of this treatment is that it cleanses the colon, which makes the body much more able to absorb nutrients from food.

This is achieved through the production of new blood or haematopaises. This fresh blood has an immense restorative effect on the body and can even cure existing ailments.

An Unlikely Prison Discovery—Water as Potent Medicine

Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj discovered the healing powers of water and the link between dehydration and chronic illness 17 years ago. He was then serving a jail sentence as a political prisoner in Iran. During his imprisonment, Dr. Batmanghelidj used the only medicine available to him—which was water—to successfully treat 3,000 fellow prisoners who were suffering from stress-induced peptic ulcers.

After his release from prison, Dr. Batmanghelidj—who trained in medicine at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School of London—turned his full-time attention to the study of dehydration and its negative health effects. His subsequent discoveries have restored health for hundreds of thousands of individuals who were suffering from unidentified dehydration-related diseases.

In addition to presenting at international and world conferences, Dr. Batmanghelidj has published his findings in a number of scientific journals. He has compiled his research for the general public in two books, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, and How to Deal with Back Pain and Rheumatoid Joint Pain.

He has even produced a video on back pain and audiotapes of his lectures—all of which have been peer and media reviewed and acclaimed both nationally and internationally.

Dehydration’s Many Disguises

According to Batmanghelidj, the body’s biological thirst signals can be mistaken for signs and symptoms of other illnesses. If we treat the root cause of these—dehydration—we can avoid costly and unnecessary medical interventions and enjoy long-term wellbeing.

Humans seem to lose their thirst sensation and the critical perception of needing water,” wrote Batmanghelidj in one of his two books on chronic dehydration and water therapy. “Not recognizing their need for water,” he continued, “they gradually become increasingly and chronically dehydrated with the progress of age.

Further confusion results when the body produces complicated secondary symptoms of dehydration. Many doctors misinterpret those secondary symptoms as unrelated diseases. 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

A Japanese medical society has also found water therapy to be a 100% cure for arthritis… epilepsy… bronchitis… tuberculosis… meningitis… diarrhea… throat diseases… and many other ailments.

Research proves that water therapy can cure these conditions very rapidly on its own—with no other medical treatments! According to the research, water therapy alleviates constipation within a single day, diabetes within one week, and hypertension and even cancer within a month.

How to Maximize the Benefits of Water Therapy

Drinking water in the morning is simple to put into practice, and virtually free! However, there are some important rules to remember. The basic protocol recommend by experts is as follows:

At first, it may be difficult to drink 1.50 liters of water at one time; however, your body will gradually get accustomed to the protocol.

When starting out, you may want to make it easier by modifying the protocol slightly, as follows: Drink 4 glasses, then pause for 2 minutes, then drink the last 2 glasses.

It goes without saying that the better the quality of water you consume, the better the results you’ll experience from water therapy.
