Weight Loss: Japanese water therapy helps with weight loss
Japanese water therapy is used to combat various health problems. In addition, this diet also helps in weight loss. We explain how it works.
Lose weight and improve your health
Water is important. Nutritionists are advised to take at least 1.5 liters of liquid daily. More in heat or heavy physical exercise. Some nutritionists also recommend starting with a glass of lemon water early in the day to boost metabolism and boost immunity. Many in Japan follow this advice. There are certain types of water treatments that are known to contribute to weight loss and improve health.
Drink water immediately after waking
As explained on the "NDTV Food" portal, Japanese water therapy helps to clear the stomach and strengthen digestive power.
Traditional Japanese medicine recommends drinking water early in the morning.
This not only helps in weight loss, but also helps in treating various health problems.
For example, nutritionist Victoria Udoh writes in a post on Linkedin that studies have shown that drinking water on an empty stomach in the morning cleanses the body's own system.
Experts say water treatment relieves symptoms such as constipation and high blood pressure and can also help with diseases such as diabetes.
And it helps reduce stress.
This is how water treatment works
The "NDTV Food" portal explains how Japanese hydrotherapy works:
As soon as you get up in the morning, on an empty stomach, drink four to six glasses of water, each containing 160 to 200 milliliters. Water should ideally drink at room temperature or warm. You can even squeeze in some fresh lemon juice.
Clean your teeth after drinking and avoid eating for at least 45 minutes. Then you can continue your diet as usual.
Do not eat or drink at least two hours after each meal of the day.
Older people suffering from severe conditions should start treatment with a glass of water a day and gradually increase the number of glasses.
If you are unable to drink all the glasses of water at a time, wait a few minutes between each glass of water to pause your stomach.
Therapy indicates that the above suggestions are part of the daily routine.
In addition, the portal displays more recommendations:
Walk quietly for at least an hour every day to boost your metabolism.
Play warm water and salt at least 4-5 times each night before going to bed.
Avoid eating and drinking while staying as this interferes with the digestive process.
Chew your food properly before swallowing it, as it helps to digest the food better.
Feeling of hunger decreases
Although German experts point out that drinking water frequently reduces the feeling of hunger, one should expect a water diet but not surprisingly.
Success depends mostly on the individual composition of the diet, namely the implementation of diet and exercise.
It is positive that this method, which cannot really be called a diet, does not expect a yo-yo effect because it does not mention a rigorous program. (AD)
