Several chronic diseases for which no cure has been found can be cured by a simple method called water therapy. Several diseases such as headaches, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, sinusitis, bronchitis, bronchial asthma, acidity, gastritis, constipation, irregular menstruation, etc., are cured by this therapy. Though it sounds incredible, it has been proved and is recommended by several doctors. However, individual results may vary.
How to Practice
The method of practicing water therapy is simple, easy, and inexpensive. Early in the morning before attending to any of the morning chores (as soon as you wake up), drink 5 glasses of water (1.25 litres) at a stretch. If you cannot drink them at a stretch, give a small break and then complete the drinking of water. However do not do any exercise before you finish drinking the rest of the water. For the next 45 minutes to 1 hours, do not consume anything. During the first few days of therapy, one may pass urine very frequently and some may even have loose motions/stools. But within a few days everything becomes normal and a relief from the symptoms of the disease will be seen. While practicing water therapy, always drink water 2 hours after meals and not before that.
