Japanese art of water therapy

Scientists claim that the old Japanese habit of drinking water immediately after waking up every morning fights various ailments. According to recent studies, apart from water's role in maintaining different organs, it prevents and treats different diseases.

Japanese believe water is an effective treatment for headaches, palpitation, arthritis, epilepsy, obesity, bronchitis, asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney disorders, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, eye diseases, cancer and menstrual disorders.

In order to benefit a water treatment method, one should:

1- Drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water after waking up in the morning and before brushing the teeth.

2- Nothing should be consumed after brushing the teeth for 45 minutes.

3- One should not eat or drink anything for 2 hours, after each meal

It is noteworthy that in old or sick individuals who can not tolerate four glasses of water, the treatment should begin with small amounts of water and gradually increased until reaching the desired amount.

The therapy course for some diseases are as fallows:

- High Blood Pressure: 30 days

- Gastritis: 10 days

- Diabetes: 30 days

- Constipation: 10 days

- Cancer: 180 days

- TB: 90 days

Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards - daily.

Testimonies are many and varied, eg. one person has commented that the water therapy has rejuvenated his libido by 20 years!

This is one piece of good advice that cannot do harm, costs almost nothing and could change your life.

Thank you Jan..

Since 1997 I have been drinking 2 very large mugs of warm water first thing in the morning after I water brush my teeth. I learned that it was a good way to break the night fast and clean out the body.

Great article!

Alkaline water
7 years ago

Yes, the Japanese were certainly onto something when they started using acidic water for agriculture and alkaline water for drinking back in the 60s.

The work of Dr Masaru Emoto is well worth checking out. He was featured on "What the Bleep."

Yes Matt, I so like Moto's work with water in his book: "The Message from Water"

I have all my water in glass bottles with words on them like Love, Peace, Thank you.....

Good tip Pamela for water later in the day.  

Do remember not to put anything in your first morning water. The first morning water is meant to simply pass through flushing out the stomach, kidneys and bladder.

If there is anything in the water at all it will stay in the stomach from one to two hours.

So Mia what did you do and how did it go?

Hey Jan, looks like most of us missed that last comment of yours.

…or kept quiet about it. I’m still trying to figure out what “20 years of libido” really means.  The problem is that it was reported by only one person. That can be a real problem. Don’t you think that at least two people should have reported it?

Yes Sam, 1 person reporting that is funny which is why I would not take it so seriously....but water regulates the production of all hormones in the body; good blood flow is important for increased libido in both men and women.

In addition, make sure you are drinking enough water and limiting your alcohol and caffeine intake. Being dehydrated hurts hormone production and can affect your testosterone levels. Read more: Home Remedy for Low Libido | eHow.com 

And for women to keep the mucous membranes moist, it’s essential to drink plenty of water every day. Generally we need to be healthy to have a healthy libido and keeping well hydrated is one thing to do.
