Drinking water on an empty stomach and when waking up has many benefits for the body, among which we can highlight that this precious liquid can help prevent diseases and certain health complications. Learn more about what the benefits can be when it is done as soon as we wake up.

Many call it the Japanese water therapy. Not only is it incredibly simple, but scientific studies have provided information that strongly suggests that drinking water when you wake up can actually work and has many benefits.

Benefits of drinking water upon waking

17 years ago, Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj was serving a jail sentence as a political prisoner in Iran. As a doctor, what he knew best was how to treat, alleviate and cure diseases.

However, Dr. Batmanghelidj did not have access to professional workstations, tools, and medicines, except for one. Water. He knew the benefits of drinking water when he woke up.

During his sentence, Dr. Batmanghelidj was reported to have successfully treated 3,000 inmates suffering from peptic ulcers. Since then, the doctor has been released from prison and has devoted his career to studying the harmful effects of dehydration.

The discoveries that followed helped thousands of people restore their health.

So what kinds of health benefits can drinking water provide when you wake up ? This water therapy has been shown to help prevent arthritis , back pain, chest pain, migraines , colitis , asthma, high blood pressure, and lower cholesterol .

Way of drinking water when waking up

1. Drink water when waking up in the morning, 640ml (about 4 glasses) of fluoride-free water, this should be done immediately after waking up. If you are drinking tap water, you should avoid it.

However, scientists have recently discovered a natural de-fluoridation method using holy basil herbs. Other options are distilled water (be sure to add minerals back to the water, including a pinch of baking soda in each glass for alkalinity) and reverse osmosis. You must do it with discretion, since drinking too much water is not healthy either.

Older people and people who are suffering from illness who do not feel well enough to drink with an empty stomach 4 glasses of water, can start drinking as much as possible, and increase the amount each day until they reach the necessary 640ml .

This methodology is of great help to help in the restoration of health due to some diseases, and those who are healthy will be able to enjoy even more the energy that pure water provides.

2. Brush and clean your teeth and mouth without eating or drinking for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes has passed, you are free to eat and drink whatever you want.

3. Drink a glass of water half an hour before your meal. Do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours after each meal.

4. Feel how your health begins to improve.

According to the Japanese Medical Society, this treatment could take 10 days to treat constipation, 10 days to treat some gastric issues, and 30 days to treat high blood pressure.

How many days to do the treatment if you suffer from:

  • Tuberculosis – 90 days
  • Diabetes – 30 days
  • Constipation – 10 days
  • Gastritis – 10 days
  • High blood pressure – 30 days
  • Arthritis, 3 days for a week; rest for a week and start again on a daily basis. This treatment has no side effects, except that you often go to the bathroom. So drink water and stay active.

The truth is that here the water is not a miracle cure. However, it is a very vital part of a person’s health and physical well-being. Simply put, taking care of your body, keeping it hydrated and active, can do wonders for your health.

Dehydration is not as uncommon as some may think and it comes in many forms. Dehydration does not necessarily mean that you are feeling dizzy and thirsty. Dehydration simply means the body is not getting the water it needs to function at its best.

Drinking water when you wake up can make a big difference in your life and taking advantage of its great benefits will make you feel better every day.
