Drink Water on an Empty Stomach


I don’t do this to often, I never typically read forwards let alone find one that I actually find inspirational but I couldn’t help but share this information. I have shared before about how much I love the power of water so you could understand why I would share this information with you today.

It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.


  1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water
  2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute
  3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
  4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours
  5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.
  6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/ reduce main diseases:

  2. Gastric (10 days)
  3. Diabetes (30 days)
  4. Constipation (10 days)
  5. Cancer (180 days)

  7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily.

This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times. It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active. This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals …not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain…

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this “sludge” reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food.. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks: · Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep.. Let’s be careful and be aware.. The more we know, the better chance we could survive…


Why Drink Water


When I was pregnant I think I heard something about drinking water at each and every visit to my midwife. I started to drink over 64oz of water daily by my 2nd trimester. Why? Mainly because I wanted to see the results of my pee stick test show great levels of water intake. Probably not the best of reasons but who cares … I was drinking water. Needless to say, once my baby was born … my water consumption went down, a lot.

We all know we should drink lots of water everyday. We hear it so often … “8 or more glasses a day” … “you have to stay hydrated.” Okay Okay … but why? Really, what are the benefits to drinking water? What will happen if I don’t drink water? How can my life be improved by drinking water?

I know I need to start drinking more water again but I now I am curious. I wanted to find out the answer to those questions so I started my Internet scavenger hunt on water benefits. Here are some of the basic reasons. Enough for me to be an avid water drinker. Thanks to the Dumb Little Man.

Weight loss. Water is one of the best tools for weight loss, first of all because it often replaces high-calorie drinks like soda and juice and alcohol with a drink that doesn’t have any calories. But it’s also a great appetite suppressant, and often when we think we’re hungry, we’re actually just thirsty. Water has no fat, no calories, no carbs, no sugar. Drink plenty to help your weight-loss regimen.

Heart healthy. Drinking a good amount of water could lower your risks of a heart attack. A six-year study published in the May 1, 2002 American Journal of Epidemiology found that those who drink more than 5 glasses of water a day were 41% less likely to die from a heart attack during the study period than those who drank less than two glasses.

Energy. Being dehydrated can sap your energy and make you feel tired — even mild dehydration of as little as 1 or 2 percent of your body weight. If you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated — and this can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, dizziness and other symptoms.

Headache cure. Another symptom of dehydration is headaches. In fact, often when we have headaches it’s simply a matter of not drinking enough water. There are lots of other causes of headaches of course, but dehydration is a common one.

Healthy skin. Drinking water can clear up your skin and people often report a healthy glow after drinking water. It won’t happen overnight, of course, but just a week of drinking a healthy amount of water can have good effects on your skin.

Digestive problems. Our digestive systems need a good amount of water to digest food properly. Often water can help cure stomach acid problems, and water along with fiber can cure constipation (often a result of dehydration).

Cleansing. Water is used by the body to help flush out toxins and waste products from the body.

Cancer risk. Related to the digestive system item above, drinking a healthy amount of water has also been found to reduce the risk of colon cancer by 45%. Drinking lots of water can also reduce the risk of bladder cancer by 50% and potentially reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Better exercise. Being dehydrated can severely hamper your athletic activities, slowing you down and making it harder to lift weights. Exercise requires additional water, so be sure to hydrate before, during and after exercise.

Yeah, I think I am sold. Going to get me a glass right now.

Keeping My Cool

034-heat-waveI was really inspired to write this post after spending a good portion of last week in a house without air conditioning, in the middle of the summer in Central Florida. Typically not a good experience, but add on to that being 30+ weeks pregnant and on bed rest … NOT FUN!

So what did I learn about staying cool and hydrated during the summer.

1. Fans are my friends. At one point we had 3 different fans blowing in our little tiny room. Probably over kill but I still wasn’t cool enough … needed more then fans.

2. Gallons of water and Gatorade. I laughed in the face of the 8 glasses a day shenanigans and was up to about 12 glasses. Trust me, you need it.

3. Showers. Yes, multiple cool showers a day to keep you body temp steady.

4. Good friends. When the going got tough we packed up and spent the remainder of the time with friends. They were so understanding and sweet. Thanks guys.

5. Going to have my A/C checked and serviced every spring from now on. You never know how much pain and suffering you can avoid if you are prepared.
