Facts About Japanese Water Therapy How Japanese Water Therapy Helps and a Warning

Find out the facts about Japanese Water Therapy. Also find out how Japanese Water Therapy can cause problems, if it's not followed the right way.

Japanese Water Therapy, similar to the water therapy in Ayurveda, has been around for a very long time. In fact, Japanese Water Therapy is extremely popular not just in Japan, but throughout the world. As you know, our bodies are made up of 60-70% water. Hence, when the amount of water in our body reduces, we face lots of health problems.

Water therapy has been a part of the Asian treatment systems for a very long time. But now they have become highly popular in the West too. The most common types of water therapies are- Japanese water therapy and Hydrotherapy.

Japanese water therapy helps in combating diseases

Water therapy helps you in the fight against ailments like Acne, Vomiting, Kidney diseases, Constipation, Diarrhoea and Obesity.

Apart from this, some people say that it helps combat body pain, Piles, Diabetes and Menstrual issues too. But there is no scientific evidence to prove this part.

Japanese Water Therapy Steps

If you have kidney problem or severe health issues, ask your doctor before starting on this Japanese Water Therapy. Here are the steps you need to follow to carry out this therapy:

1. Drink about 3-4 glasses of water once you wake up in the morning. If you can drink around 1 liter of water, it would be great.

2. If you have constipation/digestion issues, drinking water before brushing will help. The micro-organisms in the mouth when you wake up, will get washed into the stomach and help regularize bowel movements.

3. Don't drink/eat anything for at least 45 minutes after drinking water. 

4. If you cannot drink 3-4 glasses of water at a stretch, you can start with a smaller quantity. You can then drink the remaining amount of water after a gap.

Getting used to this kind of therapy may take sometime, but don't give up.

Warning on Japanese Water Therapy- Fatal Water Poisoning:

Don't ever overdo this water therapy. Drinking excess water in a short time duration (~ 3+ liters), can lead to what is known as "Fatal water poisoning". What can be considered as excessive water depends on factors like age, person's fitness level, climatic conditions etc.

Too much of a good thing is not good either, and this certainly goes for Japanese Water Therapy as well. You can always try out water therapy and see if it helps you.

What an interesting article!

I know nothing about this subject, Quite an education. thanks

voted up! well researched topic, thanks.

I learned something new today. Nice job!!

I've never heard about this, sounds interesting. Great writing!

Learning learning always learning thanks for this Rox

revisiting..

Thanks. I learned something new today. :)

I have read a lot about Water Therapy and its benefits but still i find it difficult to have 1 litre in the morning. I guess i should start consuming small amounts and then increase the quantity gradually.

I have never heard of Japanese water. Where do you find this and I wonder if my doctor knows anything about it. Sounds good to me.

Good article. Good to know things about Water Therapy. Well done and where are you??

Hi Rox, you know I need more water! This is good information because many people have problems or side-effects from lack of water.

Don't be fooled too, into thinking that 'distilled water is purer' therefore, to drink it instead. Distilled water lacking an elemental ions will 'saturate' cells, the lining of the stomach & intestines etc., causing water retention and gout-like symptoms. You want water that will flush your system, not cling-to it. Water must have elemental ions in it, even if only sodium and chlorides (salt) and dissolved minerals. Nearly all commercially available bottled water has some dissolved elements and minerals in them, both naturally and by design. Distilled water is for your steam iron et~al, not for drinking.

a great one on japanese water therapy

That's a good one Rox.

Health-wise beneficial! Great write Rox!

Very informative! : )

Well presented article. I think I could drink water first thing but it would have to be room temperature!

This is worth a try. I have tried lethal concoctions before (wine, whiskey, beer, vodka, gin, etc) so this would be less of a hang over.

great! quite useful for my study.....

Wow! Never knew all these. I will definitely try it out. Thanks for the tips.

I've heard the term a lot but never really knew how it could help people. Thanks for the great information Rox.

Thanks for your wonderful comments!

What a great article, Rox. I hadn't heard of this and I love the balance you have by adding the warning. A truly excellent article :D

This is my second day of the Japanese water treatment. I just wanted to say that yes, it is a little hard drinking so much water first thing in the morning, especially when I'm not used to drinking that much water all day, but it's not as hard as I thought it would be. My trick is to drink out of a 16-ounce glass. I gulp it down without stopping (if you stop it's hard to start up again), rest for a few minutes, then take another glass. In about a half-hour, I've finished 6 cups of water.

I haven't noticed very much difference yet, except I no longer have a dehydration headache (I was always dehydrated before). And my appetite seems to be a little less than usual, which is great because I'm trying to lose weight. You do pee a LOT the first couple of hours after drinking the water in the morning, but it's great knowing that I'm flushing out stuff I don't need in my body.

I'm always careful not to drink any more than 6 cups in the morning to avoid water toxicity. And then in the afternoon to evening, I get in a few more cups of water between meals.
