Water Therapy For Weight Loss

Water is the elixir of life. But many people, due to their love for soda and sugary drinks, do not consume enough water. Water therapy is gaining popularity in fighting several diseases. The focus of this article is to study the benefits of water therapy in aiding weight loss.

Our body is 75 percent water while our Blood is nearly 83 percent water. It is logical that our cells have to be refreshed and rejuvenated with a regular supply of water.

How does water therapy help people trying to lose weight? Basically fat deposits in the body go up when one drinks less water. Kidneys are unable to get rid of waste due to lack of water and the body ends up storing fats. Cholesterol also gets deposited on the cell walls and liver is overburdened due to kidney not performing as expected.

Consuming plenty of water enables the kidneys to function as expected. Appetite is naturally curbed toxins are flushed out and pH is balanced. Water facilitates the breakdown of carbohydrates and proteins from food and neutralizes fat thus aiding in digestion and weight loss.

The best part about water therapy is its low cost.

How to go about water therapy?

According to Ayurveda, water therapy is called Usha Kaal Chikitsa which means “drinking water early in the morning”. Ayurvedic doctors recommend drinking 1.5 liters of water, 1 to 2 hours prior to consuming breakfast.

“Usha Kaala Chikitsa” is the Sanskrit coinage for water therapy. According to this ancient system, 1.5 liters of water should be drunk without even brushing the teeth. It is very essential to note that no drinks (like tea, coffee, and milk) or any form of solid food should be taken within half an hour to one hour before and after drinking 1.5 liters of water. Using any form of alcoholic drink the previous night is strictly prohibited.

The water should be sipped slowly, should be at room temperature and should be clean and pure. Also consuming water before meals is recommended but not necessary. Some people notice tiredness and fatigue after starting this therapy but these symptoms vanish after a few days of doing it. Doctors recommend eating a diet rich in vitamin E like wheat germ, flax seeds, almonds etc.

Water therapy is a simple method to cleanse both the body and mind from toxins. Doing water therapy one gets more benefits than one can imagine. At the physical  level, various diseases are healed and at the mind level many  negative habits just fade away.

The simple method that we are going to tell you will also cleanse your mind not physically but through intellect. Like the body the mind is also affected by internal as well as external toxins. The internal toxins in the mind arise through thoughts of every day actions and external toxins come from outside as stimuli from the environment.  It is amazing how a simple method will cleanse both mind and body.

Drinking 1.5 liters of water daily first thing in the morning is water therapy. 1.5 liters is equal to 3.3 pints or 0.4 gallons of water or six and a half measuring cups (not tea-cups) of water.

Diseases healed by Water Therapy


It is impossible to list them completely. It heals a number of ailments. These are some of the benefits that we experienced and some were reported by our friends.

Remember, most of these diseases are healed not with water therapy alone but in combination with the earth therapy (Diet) and/or the other four elements.

It is an irony that we think of the tiniest chemicals that are needed for our body. Hence, we give much importance to vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones etc. We calculate calories of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. However, we forget water is the major ingredient of our body. It is this ignorance that causes many diseases. Water is the safest supplement one can take everyday to cure and prevent diseases. If this water supplement is taken regularly, perfect health can be achieved.
When should I brush my teeth while doing water therapy ?

The previous night before going to bed, if you clean your teeth and gums (gums with hand) and next morning if your mouth is not smelling bad then you may rinse your mouth with water and gently brush with your hands and do water therapy almost immediately. If your mouth has a foul smell and if you are not comfortable with the above approach, brush your teeth and then do water therapy after 5 minutes.

Should it be drunk all at once? Why not split the water and drink throughout the day?

To clean the body one has to take a shower. One cannot keep pouring little water throughout the day to clean the body. Similarly one cannot argue that water can do its cleaning action by drinking several cups of water throughout the day. To clean you have to shower the internal body with 1.5 liters of water in the morning. Drinking water throughout the day is for thirst. Water therapy is not for thirst but for flushing all the toxins out of body and to regain good health.

Aromatherapy: A quick, simple and easy way to effectively treat stress headaches

Most people will get a stress headache at least once every so often but there are also people for whom they are common occurrences. A headache can spoil your day and make it hard to concentrate on what you want to do. There are many treatments and remedies for stress headaches, though you should consult a doctor if you get these regularly. Most of the time, however, small changes in your daily habits and home remedies can be good enough to get rid of a tension headache.

Aromatherapy is a quick, simple and yet easy way to effectively treat stress headaches. If you haven’t tried it, you may be wondering how a scent can stop a headache, but the fact is that our brains respond to different odors, and the right one can have a very relaxing effect and even stop pain. Peppermint oil, for example, is perhaps the best essential oil in this case and it is also very inexpensive. Others that have proven to be effective include eucalyptus, sandalwood and lavender. You can disperse the fragrance in a number of ways but it also works if you simply sniff the oil while it is in the bottle or by putting a few drops onto your forehead or wrists. Try a variety of fragrances so that you can figure out which ones work the best for you.

 

You might not have already known that your posture plays into your headaches but chronic bad posture has been known to bring on a headache or two. It’s a fairly commonplace problem for people who work, for example, at computer stations for long hours on end. A major problem is leaning forward so that your head puts more pressure down onto your back and your neck. It is important to be aware of any of the tension that you might be holding in your upper body when you are sitting or walking around.

 

A foot bath with hot water is a remedy that’s often effective if you frequently get stress headaches. You can use your own bathtub for this, a big bucket or you can fork over some money for one of the foot spas that you can find online or in most pharmacies. This is a great treatment to use in the evening or nighttime before you head to bed. You can set the foot spas to your own comfort levels but remember that hot is good but scalding hot is bad. Allow your feet to stay in the foot bath’s water for between ten and fifteen minutes. This is not only good for your feet, but it relaxes your whole body and may prevent or cure your stress headaches too. There are many ways to treat stress headaches, and you can try one or more of the methods we’ve looked at above. For the most part, the best way to keep these kinds of headaches away is to make an honest effort to lower your stress levels even in stressful situations. It will be hard at first but you’ll eventually learn how to keep life from overly stressing you out. Reducing your stress does quite a lot for you not the least of which is stopping your stress headaches.

If you want a uncomplicated way to conquer anxiety every single time, contemplate having an individual music player with you at all times, such as an iPod or other mp3 player. That way you’ll be able to slip on your earphones, listen to some calming songs, and halt stress dead in its tracks.
