5 Benefits Of Morning Water Therapy

Morning water therapy is a traditional way of beginning each day with a glass of lukewarm water. The practice is designed to get your digestion going and help cleanse your body of toxins and waste, it is a quick and easy method to give your body a leg up. Storing the water in a copper vessel overnight and adding a dash of lemon to it before consuming can help amp-up the health benefits.

Getting your daily intake of about 2.7 to 3.7 liters of water every day isn’t always easy. But a routine like morning water therapy can ensure that you start on the right track. Water therapy is popular in several Asian branches of medicine – from Ayurveda to traditional Japanese medicine.

Morning water therapy is easy enough to work into your routine.

  1. As soon as you wake up, before you even brush your teeth, drink water. The Japanese version of the water therapy suggests drinking four glasses (of 160 ml each) of warm or room temperature water, while some practitioners of Ayurveda recommend as much as 1.2 liters.4 A glass or two is probably what most people should go for to avoid overdoing it.
  2. Next, brush your teeth but avoid eating or drinking anything – not even a morning cuppa. You’re free to eat or drink whatever you want after a 45-minute window.

Below are the benefits of  morning water therapy;

1.  Flushes Out Toxins

Water has the ability to flush out toxins from your body, and this detox effect helps with problems like acne. It also eases the workload for your kidneys, keeping kidney trouble at bay.

2. Helps Fight Illness

According to Japanese water-therapy practitioners, following the morning water regimen can ward off problems as diverse as acne and obesity. Other claims surrounding this therapy aren’t backed by clinical studies or scientific research yet, but many vouch for its benefits. For instance, women with menstrual issues or people suffering from diabetes, headaches, body aches, arthritis, and piles say that morning water therapy eases their symptoms. The water temperature is the key as cold water does not yield the same results.

 3. Flushes Out Toxins

Water has the ability to flush out toxins from your body, and this detox effect helps with problems like acne. It also eases the workload for your kidneys, keeping kidney trouble at bay.

This ability also helps in the optimal performance of the gastrointestinal tract, a clincher if you’re struggling with obesity. This practice helps get a good start to the day, cleaning out your system and getting it ready for the rest of the day.

4. Clears the Colon

When water is consumed on an empty stomach, it can easily move throughout the digestive system. A vital function of water therapy, especially in the morning, is to purify the colon. By purifying the colon, the body is able to absorb nutrients from future meals easier, which leads to increased energy and a better overall “healthy” feeling.

5.  No more Headaches

A major cause of headaches is dehydration. In fact, Mercola reports headaches as one of the top three symptoms of dehydration. Drinking water upon waking up will immediately provide the body with much needed hydration, thus also fighting off the potential of a headache rising up due to dehydration.
