How Much Water Should You Drink Each Day? Why “Chugging” Is Better Than Sipping…
Benefits Of Drinking Water Daily
By: Greg Montoya
Chugging/drinking water at this specific time of day can dramatically increase your energy levels. It will make you look younger and help fight off many diseases!
This is a typical question often asked. Most health enthusiasts suggest drinking water daily up to 8-10 glasses (10-12 ounces each). However, I personally believe that the time of day that you drink water can be even more important than just the quantity!
In Japan and other Asian countries it’s believed that drinking water in large amounts immediately after waking every morning on an empty stomach can dramatically improve a person’s health and possibly even help cure or prevent many degenerative diseases, including cancer.*
Best Time To Drink Water
Many people have reported major benefits from drinking sufficient amounts of water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
I’ve personally put this to the test and in doing so noticed a dramatic improvement in the quality of my skin tone, energy levels, mental clarity and a even a decrease in body fat.
Water Drinking Advice
Here’s a “water drinking protocol” that I live by. I believe it has the potential to dramatically improve the overall quality of your health It can give you more energy. It can help you lose some unwanted body fat and help you look and feel your best:
- Immediately upon rising drink two 10-12 ounce glasses of water on an empty stomach
- Don’t eat or drink anything for 45 minutes! After that time you can eat and drink as normal.
- For the remainder of the day drink the balance of your daily goal of 8-10 glasses in between meals. (Note: Drinking too much water with meals is not good. It can dilute the gastric acid in your stomach needed to digest your food. This can potentially cause digestive problems. One hour before or after meals is the best time to drink water.)
Could Help Cure Many Diseases
Many people in Japan believe that following this drinking water protocol can potentially cure many diseases. It also helps those who are already healthy, become even healthier.
Think of the function of this drinking water protocol similar to how a toilet bowl works. When you push the flush lever a large amount of water is released at once into the bowl flushing the waste down the drain. This is why it’s best to drink a large amount of water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. You are essentially “flushing” your internal organs of many toxins and waste matter in a similar fashion.
This flushing effect of toxins can help take a major load off of your immune system allowing it to work more efficiently on fighting off disease. A healthy immune system generally means a healthy body!
Higher Quality Water
In conclusion, “how much water should you drink each day?” is a valid question. However, the timing of when you consume water, and the type you drink, are equally important!
Consuming a higher alkaline water of 8.5 to 9.5 ph is extremely important as it can help keep your body in a healthy alkaline state.
It’s important to note that most diseases, especially cancer, cannot thrive in an alkaline body!
One of the best ways to ensure you are drinking water with a higher ph range is to create it with a water ionizer. Not only does a water ionizer restructure water creating a higher ph balance, but it also “micro-clusters” the water making it “wetter” and much more absorbing (super hydrating!) for cells within the body.
As an additional major benefit, through electrolysis, a water ionizer also turns water into a very powerful anti-oxidant. This happens by creating a strong negative ORP (Oxidative Reduction Potential) within it.
If you do not own a water ionizer and you are a bottled water drinker, I recommend drinking “Essentia” as it has a higher ph than most bottled waters. Keep in mind that drinking bottled water over an extended period of time can be a double edge sword due to BPA leaching from the plastic which can disrupt the body’s endocrine system. In particular, this can effect men because BPA can convert to estrogen in men.
