Drinking water is something that we need to do every day for our health.
The first thing is because we need to consume about 3 liters liquid every day so our body will have proper work and metabolism.
But drinking water on an empty stomach immediately after waking up is some other natural way of healing our body and health.
Do you know that drinking water in the morning after you wake up is an old Japanese Therapy?
Drinking water on an empty stomach is an ancient Japanese tradition
The Japanese people have this habit a long time ago, but it`s also a proven therapy that can treat a lot of serious diseases.
Drinking water became more popular around World War II after publishing in one Japanese newspaper.

Similar drinking water in India – Why can be this harmful?
There is a similar tradition in India called, “early morning water treatment” but they recommend that we need to drink 1.5 liters of water.
However, our kidneys can process 0.8 – 1 liter of water for one hour so more that that quantity can be dangerous.
It can develop one condition known as hyponatremia – is low sodium concentration in our blood.
This can occur when our bloodstream sodium levels are lower and that is unhealthy level.
Our kidneys cannot process all the water and the extra water can and will dilute the concentration of sodium.
If this happens, our cells begin to stretch and that is potentially deadly.
