“Did you hear…that drinking water in the morning right when wake up can have great therapeutic benefits for a multitude of health conditions—ranging from pain to asthma to cancer?” This amazing water therapy come from ancient Ayurvedic medicine. The Sages of India name this therapy, Usha Paana Chikitsa, that from the Sanskrit, roughly translates to, “early morning water treatment.” It has long been believed that drinking water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach cleanses the body’s internal system. An particularly vital result of this treatment is that it purifies the colon, which makes the body much more able to absorb nutrients from food.
More recently in the 1970’s, now famous, Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, re-discovered this ancient knowledge and showed through his own studies, that water can naturally heal us from diseases like high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune disorders, diabetes and migraines using what he calls: water therapy. Born in Iran in 1931, Dr. Batmanghelidj, graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School of London University, where he studied under Nobel Prize winner, Sir Alexander Fleming. He eventually came back to Iran where he was imprisoned in 1979 as a political prisoner for over 2 1/2 years at the infamous Evin Prison. While there, he found the healing powers of water and successfully treated 3,000 fellow inmates suffering from stress-induced peptic ulcer disease using simply water. He reported his findings in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology in June 1983 and the New York Times Science Watch, in turn, documented his finding on June 21, 1983. In 1982, Dr. Batmanghelidj left Iran and came to America and started to study the effect of chronic unintentional dehydration on the human body and he went to publish his groundbreaking data in 1991 and 1992. According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, the body’s natural thirst signals are often mistaken for signs and symptoms of other illnesses. Over our lifespan we step by step become chronically dehydrated. If we treat this root issue, we may be able to avoid unnecessary and invasive procedures and medications.
The water treatment method is as follows
- Right after waking up in the morning, drink about 8oz glass of fluoride-free water. If you’re drinking water from a faucet, chances are it’s inevitable. Other options are distilled water (make sure to add minerals back into the water, including some baking soda for alkalinity) and reverse osmosis. You must do this upon waking and on an ‘empty stomach.’
- Do not eat or drinking for 45 minutes after drinking the water. After 45 minutes has gone by, you’re free to eat and drink as you please.
- Drink a cup of water half 1/2 hour before meals. Drink again 2 hours after each meal.
- Feel your health start to improve.
