Benefits of Drinking Water on an Empty Stomach

Arthritis, Complementary Healing, Digestive Wellness

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

I’ve actually been dilligently drinking water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning (after visiting the loo) for a few years. I did this before brushing my teeth. Together with some guidelines from my personal experience writen under earlier articles: Cures for Stomach Ailments that Works, and drinking water on an empty stomach, I find that a lot of stomach ailments that I used to suffer such as stomach cramps, spasms and wind have drastically been reduced- nowadays I get pains only if I eat too much of processed carbs (with no adequate intake of fiber, ie fruits and vegetables), drinking cold water and skipping the gym and extreme stress.

The following is a forwarded email that I’ve received on the benefits of drinking water on an empty stomach. I am not sure who have writen it but I find that the article is very beneficial.

drinkwater morning - Benefits of Drinking Water on an Empty Stomach

It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven  its value. We publish below a description of use of water for our readers. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:
Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.


1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water
2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute
3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours

5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.
6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/reduce main diseases:
1.      High Blood Pressure (30 days)
2.      Gastric (10 days)
3.      Diabetes (30 days)
4.      Constipation (10 days)
5.      Cancer (180 days)
6.      TB (90 days)
7.      Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd  week onwards – daily.

This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times.

It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense … The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals …not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain…

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.
It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal.  However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.

Once this “sludge” reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.
Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks:
·         Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting,
·         Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
·         You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
·         Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
·         60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.
·         Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive…
