This water drinking habit is also known as the Japanese water therapy.
According to health experts, it provides long-term prevention against a number of diseases including arthritis, colitis, migraine, chest pain, hypertension, asthma, as well as high blood cholesterol levels.
The treatment involves the following:
- Drink 650ml or approximately 3 glasses of water after waking up. Avoid drinking tap water unless purified. For additional health benefits, such as alkalizing your body, you can add a teaspoon of baking soda. Don’t increase the amount for fear of creating side effects. Also, if you find drinking 3 glasses of water a bit hard, then start with the amount that suits you, then slowly increase the dosage.
- Wait for at least half an hour before you have breakfast.
- Drink at least one glass of water before each meal, but avoid drinking water during or 2 hours after meals.
- These simple steps will help you improve your health on many levels. As confirmed by the Medical Society of Japan, it takes about 3 days of this treatment to relieve arthritis, 10 days for any gastric issues as well as constipation, a month to reduce hypertension and symptoms of diabetes, and 3 months for treatment of tuberculosis.
