Water is essential for every living being to complete his body functions properly. 2 / 3 part of a human body is made of water. Generally it is said that eight glasses of water are sufficient for proper functioning of every human body. But this rule is not applicable for everybody as the water requirement of every person Depends upon the climate or weather conditions of his area, type of food he is consuming and Lifestyle he is living. For example in summer body needs more water cause of high temperature and high sweating while in winter the water consumption by the body gets lower. If you eat spicy and oily food you need more water to digest it but, if you eat more salads and fruits with less spicy food you will need less amount of water. In the same way if your job profile is of sitting work then you need less water in comparison with those who have a hectic schedule.
Hence, the water needs of every human being can be different. It also depends on your weight. We can calculate the amount of water needed for a particular person by dividing his weight with 10 and subtracting 2 out from it and you will get the right quantity of water you must drink in a day. For example if a person has 60 kgs of weight, then he should take(60/10=6-2=4) ltrs. of water a day. Drink the essential amount of water to rehydrate your body. It will prevent your blood to be thicken and maintain your Blood Circulation process.
Now what is the correct way of drinking water, so it can help you to maintain your health and weight. If you drink right Quantity of water with proper rules of drinking it, then it becomes a very useful medicine to prevent you from many diseases, increases your beauty and reduces the aging effects. You just have to keep the following few things in your mind while drinking a glass of water.
Never drink water in standing position. Always sit down properly and and then drink water. When you drink water in standing position it causes joint pains and many such diseases.
Never chug too much water at once with making the sound “gatak gatak”. Always sip the small amount of water. Drink your whole glass by sipping it slowly. If you drink excess of water at once your body will not be able to absorb the required amount of water and most of the water will be thrown out from your body.
Always drink the lukewarm water. Our organs perform their functions on body temperature which is about 37 degree Celsius. When you drink chilled water, then your stomach needs the blood of same temperature to maintain that body temperature. Then it demands blood from nearby organs such as heart , intestine etc. This process effects the functioning of other body organs and causes many different diseases. So avoid cold and ice water for drinking.
Take two glasses of water immediately after you wake up in the morning without brushing. Morning saliva has alkaline properties which reduces the gastric and and acidity problems. This is also helpful in activating your organs which were in rest while you were sleeping and it also helps in releasing the toxins out of your body. It is helpful in easy motion. When your motion is clear your mind gets refresh and works actively.
Take one glass of warm water one hour before going to your bed. It will help you to digest your food, maintain the blood pressure and fulfill the fluid requirement in your body at the time of sleeping.
Don’t drink excess amount of water with your meal. By doing so there remain no space for digestive juices in your stomach. These digestive juices gets diluted with excess amount of water and and your stomach is not able to digest the food properly. The food goes fermented and you have to suffer from gastric. So just sip small amount of water with your meal.
Take one glass of water before half hour of your meal. It will help you from taking excess quantity of food. Take one glass of water after an hour of your meal. It provides your Digestion system a proper interval to absorb the nutrients from food.
Drink water when you feel thirsty. Thirst is the natural phenomena. When your body gets dehydrated and need some water, then you feel thirst. Always drink water when you feel thirsty.
Drink one glass of warm water before taking a shower can lower the blood pressure.
Drink the plenty of water everyday but slowly, and in small sips. By sipping, the Saliva in your mouth properly mixes up with water, which is helpful in the proper digestion of your food.
Doctors are the second form of God. Where the great God gives us this beautiful life, Doctors help us to maintain the fitness and Regulating the activities of our body for a healthy life. But these all things are true only when your doctor has certified qualifications(full time medical courses from a certified university), Full dedication to his job & the most important humanity. But now a days the main ingredient humanity is missing in some doctors. They are more greedy about money. They have no value of your life. But all doctors are not same. Some takes there patients as their responsibility. For them your life is precious.
So it depends on you to choose the right doctor for yourself. First you should give priority to your body then you can expect someone else to cure yourself. Follow some steps while you think you need a medical prescription.
Understand your body: Each individual has different body requirements and responses. These all depends upon their birth time situations (such as, place of birth home or hospital, delivery style normal or cesarean, Birth Status healthy or with some complications etc.), the climate they live, the air they inhale, the water they drink and the food they eat. In this way anything which is best for someone can be worst for other one. So it becomes necessary to recognize your body and its responses about some climate changes, food allergies, some kind of fragrance allergies etc. Be aware about what your body can welcome and what doesn’t suits it.
Understand the seriousness of your disease: Here I have two suggestions. First is – if you have some normal physical problems, like headache, loose motions, leg pain, seasonal cold, mensuration pain etc. Try to avoid taking medicine for these. Our immune system fights against such seasonal problems and forms antibodies against the bacteria. But when we take medicine for these small small things the immune system gets weaken and self resistance power against climatic changes reduces. You can take some exercise, good sleep, healthy food, plenty of water and some home remedies to overcome such problems. But if any cold, any pain or any other disability is going moreover than two days consult your doctor. If the pain intensity is too high and you feel any kind of discomfort in breathing or dehydration go to your doctor without loosing a second.
Don’t be the doctor yourself: Never take any medicine without the concern of a doctor, or never advise someone to do so. Every drug mostly the painkillers have many side effects and some precautions regarding taking them with other drugs. Their salts can react and negatively affect your body. Some drugs are advised with milk, some with warm water and some with cold water, some after your meal and some before your meal. Each drug has a proper dose to treat your problem. But if you take it without concerning your doctor it can be harmful and life taking risk. Yes for emergency you can keep some common drugs by asking your physician or you can use some Ayurvedic medicines as they have natural ingredients causing negligible side effects.
Go to the right category of doctor you need: Before going to a doctor do some homework. If you have some dental problem then a physician or surgeon can not help you anymore. You must go to the dentist. So this home work will save your time and also the risk of wrong treatment too.
Ask everything about your medicine: It is your right to ask questions from your doctor regarding your health, and medication he prescribed. You must be aware of everything about your medication, its timing, doses, side effects, food supplements, precautions etc. A good doctor always listen his patient with patience and satisfied him first with his polite answering and showing no hurry.
Always Check the expiry date printed on the pack: Before doing payments for your medicine always check the manufacturing date and date of expiry. It is very important. If you take a medicine after its expiry date , that can be dangerous for your body and cause some fatal reactions. So be careful about it. Also Throw out the expired medicine time to time by checking your first aid box.
Keep an active Record of your all time medication : Write down your all medication processes on a note book with proper date and duration. Mention the name of doctor, medicine, clinic address, medicine manufacturer doses and their effects on you. It will help you in future medication and also in avoiding to use bad affecting medicine again.
Always use a new or well sterilized needle for injection: It is very important to save yourself from some infectious diseases such as AIDS and other. Needle must be new or sterilized in boiling water.
Note that it is your body. Listen to it. If any medicine is making you uneasy in any way stop taking it and consult your doctor. He will change it with other substitutes or change the amount of doses. But if someone forces you to take that change the doctor. May be that was good for your relative but it is not necessary that the tolerance power of everybody is same. Never miss a dose and take all doses with suggested intervals by your doctor. Be active and cautious. It takes only one pill and two seconds to destroy the functions of your body but a long interval needs to overcome this disaster.
