Alternative Medicine-1: "Miracles of Water Therapy"

The Japanese Sickness Association confirms that several diseases such as headache, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, rheumatism, sinusitis, rhinitis, bronchitis, bronchial asthma, hyper acidity, gastritis, dysentery, constipation, irregular menstruation, uro-genital problems etc are cured by Water Therapy.
Though it sounds incredible, it has been proved factual and is recommended by several doctors as well. Human health depends mainly on the digestive system. As Swami Paramahansa Yogananda said, "It is overeating that leads to most of the diseases. Whereas drinking ordinary potable water helps clean the stomach and enables the intestine to form new fresh blood called "Haemoatopoesis", which in turn fights against the disease-causing organisms. Thus many of the ailments are cured by practising Water Therapy.
How to Practise
The method is simple, easy and inexpensive. Early in the morning, before attending to any of the morning chores, 6 glasses of water (1.26 kg or 1.26 litres) should be taken in one stretch. You may give a short break. Do spot-walking exercise for a few minutes and complete the rest of water. Take necessary precautions against impurities of water. Water should be boiled and cooled, if purity is suspected. For the next 45 minutes to one hour after drinking water, no other beverage or eatable should be taken. After supper, one should not have any stimulating beverage or soft drink.
During the first few days of therapy, one may pass urine 3-4 times within one hour after drinking water. Some may have even loose stools. But in a short period, everything comes back to normalcy and symptoms of relief from the disease will be seen.
Persons suffering from arthritis and rheumatism should take Water Therapy three times a day in the first week and thereafter practise it once a day. While practising water therapy, water should be taken two hours after each meal and not before that.
Experiments show that the following diseases be cured in the stipulated period mentioned in brackets: Hypertension (one month), Diabetes (one to two weeks), Gastritis (one week), Constipation (one or two days).
