In Ayurvedic medicine, water is one of the most important tools for healing. I share some tips on how you can use water as a daily cure.
Ayurveda recommends that you should drink water while sitting instead of standing.
Drink water first thing in the morning. It will help flush toxins out of your system.
Add squeezed fresh lemon juice.
Use a coaster in colour, loads the water with positive affirmations.
It is always advised to drink warm water or water at room temperature throughout the day. Avoid drinking cold and iced water as it douses the digestive fire, hindering the proper digestion process from creating ama. Drinking warm water helps flush out the toxins and keep the digestive system functioning and on track. Drink water in sips and not in one shot.
Water along with your meals
Drink only a small amount of water along with your meals or after meals.
Drinking too much water while eating will fill your belly, leaving insufficient space for digestive actions.
Water in Copper Vessels
There is much science confirming the healthful benefits of copper. When you store water
in a copper vessel for at least 8 hours, copper ions dissolve in that water in small amounts. Termed as the Oligodynamic Effect, this water now has the potency to destroy harmful microbes, fungi, bacteria, etc. Before using the copper vessel, fresh it up by cleaning with lemon and water.
I recommend to drink the water two times a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
How much water should you drink?
Ayurveda suggests that you should drink water throughout the day in small sips. The rule of drinking 8 glasses of water every day doesn’t hold good for everyone. Since we are different from different diet choices and lifestyles, our water intake is also variable. The human body has its measuring system. When it needs water, it will create the thirst to make you aware that you should drink water. Therefore, drink water when you’re thirsty. When you start following your thirst cues and take small sips of water the entire day, you’ll automatically hit the right amount of water needed for your body.
The word "Hado" comes from Japanese and means wave, motion, or vibration patterns.
The word can also be used to express the vitality of the water's healing properties.
Dr.Masaru Emoto was a Japanese quantum physicist, showed that water responded in clear or muddy crystals. Depending on positive or negative vibrations, in music or words.
This knowledge should lead us to become more conscious, consider the human body contains 50-75% water.
Live well & wisely!
