What is water therapy?
Drinking 1.5 liters of water daily first thing in the morning is water therapy. 1.5 liters is equal 0.4 gallons of water or six and a half measuring cups (not tea-cups) of water.
How should I do it?
In the morning after getting up from bed, without even brushing your teeth or washing your face, drink 1.5 liters of water. Make sure that neither other drinks nor solid food of any sort should be taken within one hour before or after drinking the 1.5 liters of water.
Is it possible to drink 1.5 liters of water at once?
For starters, it might be difficult to drink 1.5 liters of water in one stretch, but you can get used to it gradually. Initially start practicing by drinking half liter for a week and then try gradually increase the intake to 1.5 liters.
Take one and a half liter bottle, fill it with water and start drinking directly from the bottle. Keep drinking as much as you can. If you cannot empty it all at once give a 5 minutes gap and then drink the rest of the water. Again, if you need it, give another gap of 5 minutes and empty the bottle. Keep doing this everyday and you will notice that in a few days you can empty the bottle all at once. This is the best way to do the water therapy.
Initially you might have the urge to urinate 2-3 times in one hour, but it will get normal in someday.
Done fear if you can hold so much of water, your stomach is a muscular sac that can hold about 1.5 liters (1.6 quarts) of fluid.
Why not split the water and drink throughout the day instead of drinking at once?
Consider our internal body to be a fish tank filled with water. Is it possible to clean it entirely by just replacing the water little by little or replacing the entire water in the fish tank? 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.
Why is the amount 1.5 liters or 1.6 quarts recommended?
Considering the average stomach capacity, 1.5 liters (1.6 quarts) of water is recommended. It basically fills the stomach and the water gushes into the intestines and cleans the whole pathway. Since the small intestine does not absorb water, nature helps in the cleaning of the organs from the mouth, through the esophagus, stomach and the small intestines and part of the large intestine right down to the rectum. So every morning we clean the whole alimentary system (digestive and intestinal organs).
