He discovered that he could cure most of his subjects of their chronic ailments using only water.

Understanding the importance of water , saints of India presented the technique of using water to stay healthy thousands of years ago.

The Internal Use of Water Therapy:
Early morning, drink 1.25 liters of pure water ( preferable kept overnight in copper vessel). This should be done on an empty stomach, after having starved for 8-10 hours the previous night. Try consuming the entire quantity of water within 5 to 10 minutes.
However, in the initial stages of your therapy, if you find drinking this much quantity of water rather difficult, you might start by drinking a quantity smaller than the prescribed 1.25 liters, and gradually you can increase it to 1.25 liters. Make sure to give yourself ˝ an hour of complete rest, after drinking the water. Exercises, moving bowels or bath can be taken care of, only after this rest-period. Make sure you don't eat or drink anything within 1˝ to 2 hours of drinking water in the morning.




How does this form of Water Therapy act within the body?
1. When 1.25 liters of water is drunk within a short span of 5-10 minutes, after a night of fasting, the pressure of water that grips the intestines, activates them a lot more than usual.

2. Due to the sudden water-pressure, the bits and particles of food that adhere to the walls of the intestines, along with gases and other undigested materials, disengage themselves from the intestinal walls, dissolve into the inflowing water and leave the body along with the same. This in turn, gives the intestinal cells a new lease of life.

3. The intestines are not the only parts of the body to benefit from this Water Therapy. The cells of the entire body get revitalized. When, after 8-10 hours of fasting, water is drunk, the insides of the body soak it up thirstily and as a result, every single cell of the body gets affected by the water-intake. The free radicals and toxic elements adhering to the cells, are literally pressurized into removing themselves from the cells, and then the body's in-built cleansing system gets rid of these unwanted elements very easily, afterwards. Water is directly related to the kidneys and that is why Water Therapy does away with impediments within and ailments of the urinary track very fast. Water Therapy not only destroys the bacteria of the urinary track but also helps in getting rid of kidney stone problem.

Sweating, nausea and loose-motions could also form parts of the 'symptoms'. If not all these, he might definitely experience a certain sort of uneasiness. The thing to keep in mind is that these are not harmful 'after-effects' of Water Therapy.
