Did you know that drinking water in the morning upon waking up can have amazing therapeutic effects for a multitude of health conditions
Humans seem to lose their thirst sensation and the critical perception of needing water not recognizing their need for it they gradually become increasingly and chronically dehydrated with the progress of age.
Water therapy is the practice of drinking water approximately 1.5 liters of water early in the morning immediately after waking up, by doing this you are cleansing your body of the toxins and chemical build-up in your system.
Our body contains 70 percent of water, Our Muscles contain 75 percent; our brain cells contain 85 percent , our blood contains approximately 82 percent , even our bones contain 25 percent of water. Drinking water increases the production of new blood and muscle cells, helps with weight loss.
Why take 1.5 liters of water daily?
Our stomach is a very tough organ!
The stomach is an empty muscular sac that can expand to hold up to about 1.5 liters of fluid, and 2 to 4 liters of food. Isn't that just amazing!
Drinking 1.5 liters of water, to the fullest capacity of the stomach cleanses the intestines, stomach, blood and all organs revitalizing them and removing all water soluble toxins in the form of urine.
When the stomach is full with water, it will flow into the intestines cleansing its pathway.
You can live five to seven weeks without food, but the average adult cannot live more than five days without water. Despite the many benefits of drinking water, People start their day with coffee or tea. Studies have shown that drinking water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach purifies the body’s internal system.
"Now you might ask what's the best time to practice this therapy"
Water therapy is best practiced immediately as you wake up in the morning, before you brush your teeth. For this therapy to work effectively, it is best not to eat late at night nor consume any alcohol prior to the day of therapy.
Some people might not be very comfortable with the idea of drinking water without brushing their teeth, if your mouth has a foul smell and you feel better washing your mouth before drinking then I suggest you do so.
The quality of the water used for water therapy must be pure, or free of chemicals. Water filters are beneficial as they help to remove free radicals and other chemicals.
Set Goal For Water Filtration
Remember, you want the water you will be consuming for therapy to be as pure as possible so your kidneys and whole system won't go through too much to filter out the extra impurities from your water.
Just like all living matter undergoes a cycle of its own, every part of the body and our cells within work together to maintain this balance which is referred to as human homeostasis.
Homeostasis is the body's ability to maintain and regulate its internal stability due to any fluctuations from its surroundings.
Take note that if you have just started Water Therapy you may feel the urge to gag after filling your stomach with water, do not worry.
This is because your stomach is just now getting used to receiving a lot of water all at once, after doing it several times you will get used to it, and there will be no more gagging.
After drinking water, It is important to wait for 1 hour before eating your breakfast, so that you give your body time to work with the water you've just consumed. You may however experience frequent urination within the first few hours.

Dehydration the Body's Enemy
Dehydration is the body’s enemy. It slows bodily functions and metabolism. As a matter of fact, your metabolism will slow to conserve energy when you haven’t had enough water to drink, as your organs can’t and won’t function as efficiently. Scientifically, drinking water has been proven to contribute to your body’s ability to burn calories. Your body needs an adequate amount of it to properly function, especially during exercise, and dehydration prohibits the fat-burning process. Drinking water regularly flushes toxins from your body’s system, including those produced during exercise. It aids in keeping joints lubricated—very important for both daily functions and in preventing your body from injury during exercise. Drinking water is also vital to weight loss. If you are working out regularly, drinking an adequate amount of water is extremely important.
Keep in mind that even if you've just consumed 1.5 liters of water, it doesn't mean you don't need water for the rest of the day. If ever you still feel thirsty throughout the day, this means your body needs to be hydrated. So please drink to satisfy your thirst.
