Drinking enough water each day can bring amazing results for our health & wellness. We are today neglecting basic requirements of our body and trying to compensate with other things that are only required and good when we are able to full-fill basic requirements of our body.
Water is a nutrition, a vital supplement to maintain body functions, still water is neglected, we have under-estimated the health benefits of drinking and using water. A number of our health problems are there because our body is struggling for water to carry its basic functions.
Water is the second most important requirement of living being after air.
Today we try to retain and maintain health by consuming multi-vitamin and multi-mineral tablets along with a number of products available in the market. We use these products because scientific researchers have shown that our basic food isn’t able to provide all the nutrition in optimum quantity that are required by our body to stay healthy.
Marketing firms with the help of Medical science and scientific discoveries sell these products and we use them because there is a lot of media hype about them.
Today most of the health problems that we face whether major or minor are somewhere related to our modern attitude. Whether its pollution or life-style, it’s all created by us.
Importance of Water in Human Body’s
Relationship between Water & Natural Health
I don’t think importance of water in our life needs any introduction. Our body can’t survive without water even for a week. Surface of our planet earth is 70% water (which supports life on this planet) and approx. 80% of our body consists of water. Some major roles of water in our body are:
1. Water plays a vital role in delivering nutrition & oxygen to different parts of our body.
2. Water helps in detoxifying the body, it removes wastes and toxins from our body.
3. Water helps in digestion.
4. Water helps in maintaining a healthy temperature in the body.
5. Water is important for normal functioning of our cells and tissues.
Drinking Water Therapy
Simple Steps to Benefit from Drinking Water At Home Everyday
Water is important not only to our body and health but it’s also plays an important role in everyday life. If we can’t get enough water either for drinking or for daily use in a day, we can assume what that day will mean to us.
Although we use water every day and still here in this article on Water Therapy it is said that our body isn’t getting enough water for working efficiently and naturally. The reason is we aren’t using/drinking water the way we should be drinking.
Drinking Water Therapy is said to cure and prevent a number of body malfunctioning called disease/health problem. Here are some simple looking but highly effective steps of Drinking Water Therapy. Don’t take these steps lightly because they are free and look too simple. Follow these basic steps of drinking water therapy according to your own convenience and body condition.
Note: Please don’t force anything too hard on yourself or your body, take time to gradually improve it.
1. Drink approx. 1.25 litres water every day when you get up in morning, before brushing teeth or doing anything else. Drink as much as you can. Initially it may trouble you a bit as frequent urination can take place or some other feelings may come. These are temporary and last only a few days. Don’t drink or eat anything for next 45 or 60 minutes.
2. Drink plenty of water approximately 60 minutes before your meals. This will clean your body system and improve digestion and appetite.
3. Don’t drink water during meals or immediately after the meals, wait for at least 1/2 hours. If you can’t stop yourself from drinking water during or immediately after the meals then reduce quantity to minimum. This will help in digestion and it will also prevent any gastro-intestinal related health problems.
4. Take your meals at least 1 or 2 hours before going to bed. This will also allow your body to digest food efficiently. Our body’s digestion system works better when we are awake, then during the sleep. Sleeping immediately after taking meals isn’t good for health and wellness.
Benefits of Water Therapy
A glimpse of role of water in our body.
Water therapy is a natural therapy to improve the functioning of our body by providing it what it longs for. There are numerous benefits of water therapy that have been reported and published.
How much benefits one can expect depends on present condition and health status of our body. We cannot expect to get benefit in a health problem that we are not suffering from. It all depends on how much we’ve deprived our body. Some of the health benefits of water therapy are also listed in a post on water therapy under heading.
We should adopt water therapy in our day to day life not because of a few listed benefits but because there are many other hidden benefits which aren’t listed and vary from person to person. We should also not forget that it’s a free and natural way to retain health and wellness.
Drink Water to Retain Health
Drink water instead of other drinks to retain and maintain health.
Drinking water is better than drinking any other drinks like tea, coffee, cold drink, energy drinks etc. We drink other drinks instead of water because they cost more money and are therefore are more privileged. If someone offers us water (instead of other drinks) then the offer won’t make sense to us.
Every drink has something to contribute to our body and we can even bring some benefits to our body from them. This can only be true when we are able to provide our body with enough water for its use. If we keep our body starved of water and supply it with other so called useful healthy drinks then it won’t be as effective as drinking water, which is commonly available at our homes.
Healthy drinks can provide more benefits to our body if it is getting all basic things in sufficient quantity like air, water and nutritious natural food. Today when marketers have access to our private life in the form of television, radio, internet, newspapers, books and magazines they are easily able to influence many things in our busy life. They can recommend food and drinks for people with certain symptoms without pointing to common things that can also be responsible for such symptoms like insufficient quantity of water in our body or lack of sleep. They will only tell things that help them to make more sales. Water therapy or drinking water for health is also one such common cause of concern.
We tell our children to drink milk, tonics for health but we are reluctant to provide them water without there asking. This is also the case with our own self. We only drink water when there is either no alternative or we have a strong desire for water.
Ignoring Water is… Ignoring Life!
Amazing Water Therapy
Amazing results of Water Therapy.
It’s not a hype that water therapy can provide amazing results to a number of people. There are people who call Water Therapy as a hype, explanation they provide for this assumption is based on the fact that ‘our body is capable of extracting water from our diet’ like fruits, vegetables, cooked food etc.
It is true that our body is able to extract water from our regular diets but today our diet is no more a natural diet, today our diet doesn’t contain enough water which can be extracted by our body. Our drinks are not balanced to provide enough water to our body.
Our modern lifestyle is actually responsible for this scarcity of water in our body, and water therapy can help us to restore water in our body and help it to function normally and thus we’ll see amazing results of water therapy.
It may look ludicrous that how normal functioning of our body with water therapy can bring amazing results. Well! May be we are not aware that a minute problem with functioning of body or body organ can create a big health problem. All serious or moderate health problems are a result of abnormal body function and if all body functions can be normalized then we can see an unexpected recovery of health immediately or in due course.
