“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.
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.
Should I measure and drink water?
The stomach is a muscular sac that can hold about 1.5 liters (1.6 quarts) of fluid. The stomach can expand to hold up to 4 L (4.2 qts.) of food, more than 50 times its empty volume.
Should I use a bottle or measure in cups and drink water?
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 day you can empty the bottle all at once. This is the best way to do the water therapy.
Taste of water satiates the tongue. Therefore, by pouring water directly in the throat and avoiding contact with the tongue, one can drink one and a half liters of water with ease. Care should be taken not to choke while doing direct drinking.
There is another way. Measure 1.5 liters in cups and drink cup after cup. However, most people start feeling satiated sooner when you measure and drink in cups.
The best is to drink directly from a 1.5 liter or 1.6 quart bottle.
How will Water Therapy Help in Weight Loss
When you drink water first thing in the morning, your body will start to flush out a lot of toxins and extra salt. This also makes you urinate frequently in the first hour. When toxins and salt are flushed out, water held in the body is also released. The more salt and toxins are in the body, the more water is retained making you feel and look bloated.
Water is needed for all the different types of reactions in the body. The breaking down of fat requires enzymes to work on the fat. All enzyme reactions in the body require water as the solvent. So without adequate water, no matter how much you diet, youâ€™re not going to lose any fat. Water consumption is very important in weight loss.
With Water therapy and also drinking about 2 glasses before a normal lunch and dinner will help you curb your appetite and youâ€™ll eat less.
There is no real necessity to go on a dieting technique. Dieting techniques are plenty, and if you want to try one, you can choose from the many different types of dieting techniques found online. Water therapy will reinforce any dieting technique youâ€™re following.
Some people like to starve thinking theyâ€™ll lose weight, but starving is one of the worst techniques you can follow. When you starve for a period of time, your body is deprived of food. The next time you decide to eat even if it is less than normal, your body will convert it to fat as fast as possible, as a preventive measure from being deprived of food. So, another no-no in weight loss dieting techniques is starving.
No matter what dietary technique you use, do the water therapy together with it. You can also try to have a normal diet with reduced carbohydrates, sugar and with lots of fruits and vegetables with water therapy and youâ€™ll definitely lose weight.
