Water Therapy and Simple Exercise to Prevent Sickness

Updated on December 28, 2011

Water therapy, or sometimes called hydrotherapy has its origin unknown, since water has existed everywhere since the beginning. There are various sources from Asia and Europe of how water is used to cure sickness in different ways, but I’m interested to share about a technique which is still common used today especially in India and Japan because there are good testimonials showing it beneficial.


Every morning, upon waking and before even washing your face, drink 1.16 to 1.5 liters of water (about 6 glasses) continuously. If you like, you may filter and boil the water. What’s important here is that you do not consume anything prior and 1 hour after drinking. It is also important that you do not take alcohol the night before because besides fatigue, it will only cause increased urination, dehydration and loss of essential minerals.

Drinking this amount of water may be difficult in the beginning. You may find that it’s easy to drink 4 glasses easily but it’s fine to take a gap of 1-2 minutes to drink the last 2 glasses. In addition to that you may even urinate several times because of loose bowels. However after several practices, you will be able to drink the whole 1.5 liters without any trouble. To make it even easier, do not eat or drink anything 2-3 hours before sleeping as this will improve your sleeping quality and make you thirsty when you wake up.

After drinking, be sure to sweat it out. Simple exercise that involves whole body movement is recommended, such as jogging, fast walking, aerobics, tai chi or even climbing stairs. Do this for 20-30 minutes. If it’s not possible to exercise outside your room, you may even jog on the same spot. As you exercise, the water will help clean your colon tract and this will allow it to better absorb the nutrients from food and also form new fresh blood (known as Haematopaises). It is commonly known if the colon tract fails to perform the two functions above; a man health will eventually fail. The fresh new blood will help curing all forms of sickness and improve a person’s overall health.


After 1 hour, you may eat and drink as usual. Be moderate in your drinking throughout the day, and not excessively.

You may search for the various benefits of this practice, from the various diseases it cures to how a thin man gains 10kg or even how a fat person lost weight doing the same thing. These are just a few of them:

  • Eye Diseases
  • Menstrual disorders
  • Ear, nose and throat diseases
  • Headache
  • Kidney diseases
  • Cough
  • Gastritis
  • Diarrhea
  • Hypertension
  • TB
  • Diabetes
  • Constipation
  • Asthma
  • Epilepsy
  • Obesity
  • Meningitis
  • Hepatic diseases
  • Piles, etc


You may be wondering if this practice has any side effects. It is not known to be any. If you drink water excessively, it will cause water intoxication or water poisoning, causing death. However the deaths reported due to water poisoning are resulted from contests where individuals take huge amount of water, much more than the one recommended here. Other cases are due drinking large volume of water AFTER long intensive exercises. So, as a precaution, always take a moderate amount of water throughout the day.

With all this said, water alone is insufficient to keep a man healthy. A balanced diet is your source for nutrients and a good rest ensures that your body isn’t overworking itself. Have a healthy life, so that you may enjoy life to the fullest!
