Water: Can it cure you?

I read recently about how the Japanese believe drinking water first thing in the morning and not eating for 45 min. can cure many ailments. I am in the routine of drinking an Apple Cider Vinegar tonic in the morning. The recommended about is about 2 1/2 cups. So, I decided to start drinking a glass of water after my Apple Cider Vinegar Drink. I know I've been to the bathroom more for sure! And I think it is having a positive effect on me.

The thing I like about this idea, is it seems to be an easy time to drink more water. If you drink too much water during a meal, it can dilute the digestive juices. And it's hard for me to remember to drink between meals. I'm just too busy. When I worked, I just had a water bottle on my desk. But now that I stay home, I really have trouble getting enough water in. I saw it recommend in one place to add a small bit of sea salt....maybe one day I'll be brave enough.

Don't forget to make sure you have a good water filter or other source of pure water.

Here's some links to a couple different sites about the Water Cure. The first one tells about a doctor in Iraq who discovered how much water alone could cure while he was in prison and how no other tools. The second 2 mention the Japanese theory of treatment.

I've read about drinking water a half hour before eating breakfast to stay regular. We have a reverse osmosis system on our kitchen sink and will often add a drop of lemon oil to our water to purify it and make it taste good. Drinking pure water is an easy way to improve our health.

Hello, fellow Sonlighter! Just checking in. I love your blog. I know I need more water--but like you, I just get too busy and forget.
