Ever thought about juice cleansing? It can be pricey, right? Why not try Japanese Water Therapy instead? Reason being it is affordable and does wonders! Exactly a month ago, I made a choice to water cleanse my body. Although I have been trying to stay on track with my water consumption, I have barely ever had more than a glass of pure water early in the morning. I did my research and decided to see if it works! So if you have never heard about Japanese Water Therapy, today is your lucky day! Paddle along and I will take you through this process step by step.
What The Hell Is It?
Japanese traditional medicine believes that drinking water first thing in the morning (on an empty stomach) brings out natural health benefits by cleansing your organism out of toxins. You are what you…drink! I’m sure you’ve heard this before! Most of our health problems start in our guts, what you eat and when you do it play such an important role. But trust me, we’ve got you covered – start off your health journey with loads of water and you’ll see what I mean. Oh, and have I mentioned that you may shred some fat too?
Well, the first week was sort of tough! My body was definitely not used to having four glasses of water early in the morning, which left me feeling a bit heavy for the first hour of my day. However, once it settled and got through my system, I surely felt the difference – more energized and empowered. Now I can’t stress enough the importance of water and staying hydrated!
Be honest with yourself now – how often do you snack? Too often? Oh man, we’ve all been there! But listen – water treatment boosts your metabolism and therefore makes it easier for your organism to digest food. Having your digestion under controlled, it will come more easily to you to fix your sugar levels – sudden sugar rushes! I can bet you will feel less bloated too! This is how your body learns to properly store energy and to release it when needed. Your body is amazing, just give it what it needs!
Improve Your Fitness
Water is life – there is no doubt about that at all! It fuels your body and sharpens your mind, keeping you functioning 24/7. After proper hydration, I am able to run longer distances in the same period of time. It not only helps you eat well but also gives you the energy to rock your gym sesh! I would definitely recommend Japanese Water Therapy to someone who is not feeling particularly refreshed and maybe tired too. Just give it a try, and perhaps it will work for you too!
What You Need To Know
In order to begin the therapy, familiarize yourself with these there very simple steps below. And remember, the most important thing about this water treatment is that it needs to be done after awakening on an empty stomach!
#1 Right after waking up, drink 4 glasses of water (4x160ml or 4x22ounces) before even brushing your teeth. It should be neither too cold nor too warm!
#2 You can brush your teeth afterwards, but don’t drink or eat anything for the next 45 minutes. This is when the magic happens.
#3 After that time, you can eat and drink as you would normally do. Just keep a window of at least 2 hours after every meal! This is when more magic happens!
If you have a kidney problem or severe health issues, please do contact your doctor before beginning the Japanese Water Therapy. Oh, and just to let you know, you will pee a lot!
