A current trend in Japan today is drinking water immediately after getting out of bed. Scientific tests have confirmed the medical value of this practice.
This water treatment has been confirmed by Japanese medical authorities to completely cure certain diseases, whether they are more serious or simply mild afflictions.
A list of these diseases as follow.
- Body aches
- Heart problems
- Kidney diseases
- Uterine diseases
- Ear and throat diseases
Water is universally needed to maintain good health and avoid metabolic problems, which is why the Japan Medical Assocation (JMA) approved this water therapy as a successful way to treat some chronic illnesses.
- Upon arising in the morning, before you brush your teeth, drink 4 glasses of water. (If for any reason you cannot drink this much water at one time, you may start with as much water as you can drink, then gradually increase the amount.)
- After drinking the water, brush your teeth and gargle, as desired, but wait 45 minutes before eating or drinking anything else.
- After the 45 minute waiting period, you may eat and drink normally.
- Once a meal is completed, do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours.
NOTE: The elderly or infirm, who may be unable to consume sizable amounts of water, may want to start off gradually, from 1/2 C to the recommended 4 glasses before breakfast. Also, it may be best to use filtered water to diminish any parasites or other harmful substances.
Although there are no side effects to this totally natural treatment, in the beginning, you may notice an increased frequency of urination until the body accustoms itself to the new pattern of water intake.
Using this treatment method has no side effects other than increased urination at the beginning of the program.
Drinking water and staying healthy and active are ways that will better out lives. Including this water drinking regimen will also help you to stay healthy.
Both the Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals instead of cold water. Cold water slows down the digestive process and solidifies the oily foods you have just eaten.
Once these solidified oils react with the stomach acid, it is absorbed more quickly by the intestine and lines the intestinal wall. The long-term accumulation of these digested oils can lead to cancer.
Perhaps Western cultures should adopt this practice, as there is everything to gain and nothing to lose.
