  • Vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids,
  • Diabetes, constipation
  • All eye diseases, womb
  • Cancer
  • menstrual disorders
  • Diseases of ear nose and throat.

I like this therapy because it is in tune with my own recommendation to consume plenty of fluids, especially drinking water early in the morning to lose weight .

Also drink water is simple, inexpensive and has no adverse effects besides detox symptoms that can be felt when the body begins to eliminate toxins.

Water therapy

  1. 22 ounces baby to wake up (650 ml) of water, above all in the morning. Slowly, slowly.
  2. Now you can brush and clean the mouth but do not eat anything for at least 45 minutes.
  3. After 45 minutes, you can eat and drink as you normally do.
  4. Do not drink or eat anything for two hours after breakfast, lunch or dinner.
  5. If you can not drink four glasses at the beginning, start with less and go up gradually.

The water should be at room temperature or warm, preferably to avoid the dangers of drinking cold water . It can not contain fluoride or other chemicals, so if you live in theUS or anywhere where they add chemicals to water, I recommend you buy a water filter.

As a rule base, we must consume half our weight in ounces of liquid every day and adapt this amount depending on how active or sedentary be. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, it is recommended that you drink about 100 ounces (2.95 liters) of water / liquid a day. So those who think that 22 ounces (0.65 liters) is overkill, please investigate a little more, drink water and reevaluate their position. Or just visit the following link …

If you feel that the water is very “boring” for you or want to make it more interesting, add flavor and increase the effect of this therapy, you need to read the article of the  36 benefits of drinking water with lemon .


Water therapy has no negative side effects rather than go to the bathroom a lot for those people who are not used. It may also happen that you feel symptoms of detoxification (detox), these are 100% normal and occur when the body is being cleaned (removing toxins) or combating harmful organisms.

Among the symptoms that you may experience in the detoxification process they are: itching, dizziness, nausea, headache, upset stomach, cravings, diarrhea, fatigue, tiredness, feeling discouraged, moodiness among others.

Do not worry, not everyone suffers these symptoms and if it happens, usually see one or two of these. The duration can vary from a few days to a few weeks depending on so many’re removing toxins from your body. Let your body take care of the symptoms, that is, let them pass naturally as blocking drug also block the healing process.
