Many diseases respond well and are even treated with a simple method known to Japanese for centuries. Drinking warm water in the morning on an empty stomach is recommended for different situations. This enhances all the functions of the body and helps it deal with problems.
Recent studies confirm the beneficial effect of this practice. According to Japanese medicine, drinking warm water in the morning on an empty stomach helps with the following diseases: headache, body aches, arthritis, epilepsy, bronchitis, asthma, meningitis, kidney disease, obesity, gastritis, diarrhea, diabetes, constipation, all types of ocular diseases, menstrual problems, diseases in the ears and throat, and even cancer, according the Japanese people who are known for treating with alternative medicine.
The Japanese recommend the following method: after waking up, even before you brush your teeth, drink 4 glasses per 160ml of warm water. You can brush your teeth, but don’t drink anything at least for 45 minutes. After breakfast fluids are not allowed at least 2 hours. This applies to all meals as a whole, because drinking water after eating dilutes the juices in the digestive system and disturbs the work of the stomach. You can start with less amount of water in the morning, and increase it gradually.
The results of the treatment with warm water, with high blood pressure show after 30 days, with gastritis after 10 days and with diabetes after a month.
This method does not have any side effects, except often going to the bathroom. It is recommended that you consult with a doctor, before starting with the treatment.
In the context of warm water we came across another interesting study. Namely, burns should be treated with warm water, instead of cold water.
Putting cold water onto small pieces of burned skin is a known way of treating burns. Swiss scientists recommend that you do the opposite: run warm water over the burned areas.
The research conducted at the University of Basel, shows that the warm water reduces damage to the tissues and helps in restoring normal blood circulation in the burned areas. Upon receipt of burns within 24 hours, warm water is used. The results of the research show that the tissues are less damaged and the wounds are external.
Scientists say, that although cold water helps reduce the sense of pain, because it cools the skin and the nerve endings, after 20 minutes the pain returns because of low temperature. After the appearance of burns they recommend running cold water on the tissue for about 1 minute, and then run warm water to promote blood circulation. The warm water should not be hot, but around 20-30 degrees Celsius.
