I Drank Water on an Empty Stomach for a Month and Here’s What Happened
One day, tired of being constantly tired, I asked myself "What do Japanese women do to have flawless porcelain skin and slim, toned figures?" After doing a little research, I found out about a Japanese ritual of drinking water on an empty stomach immediately after waking up every morning.
According to numerous studies, this simple practice provides positive results regarding different health conditions. I decided to give it a try, and today I would like to share my experience with the readers of Bright Side.
I no longer knew what to do to feel more energetic. My skin and hair looked dull, and my body was sending me signals that it was not working well.
Tired of visiting doctors who were telling me the same thing and prescribing more and more pills, I inquired about the Japanese water treatment and soon put it into practice. The results were simply amazing!
1. I started to feel more fresh and healthy.
A few days after starting to drink water in the morning, I began to feel lighter. I could feel that my body was detoxifying more easily.
2. My metabolism improved.
This practice made my diet more tolerable. I no longer felt the hunger that bothered me every hour. The need to snack in between meals disappeared, and I had more energy.
3. It helped me lose weight.
In addition to feeling less hungry, my digestion ceased to be slow and heavy. And having more energy motivated me to exercise more.
4. It keeps heartburn at bay.
Evey now and then I suffered from indigestion and acid reflux. But after I started to drink water every morning, this problem disappeared and I no longer felt that horrible discomfort after every meal.
5. My skin’s appearance improved.
I’m not going to lie. People used to tell me I look older than my age. Since I started the water therapy, the wrinkles in my face diminished and now my skin looks healthy, radiant, and glowing!
6. My hair started to look better.
My hair used to be so brittle that I usually had to cut it twice a month. Drinking water not only resulted in healthy hair growth but also made it look incredibly shiny!
7. I stopped having urinary tract infections.
Water treatment solved this problem better than any antibiotics could. At this point, the success is resounding, and I am no longer bothered by any painful burning sensations.
8. I haven’t been sick for a long time.
This simple ritual has really improved my immune system. Something as simple as drinking water on an empty stomach helped me deal with diseases without having to resort to medicine.
