Nothing is as essential to our survival as good old plain water. By now, you’ve probably heard that drinking more water throughout the day can help you improve your health, and that’s a hard fact – but did you know that by drinking it warm you can unlock a whole new level of unique health benefits?
Starting your day by drinking a cup of warm water on an empty stomach will enhance your digestion, stimulate your metabolism and accelerate the removal of toxins and waste from the body.
Regardless of whether you choose to drink it plain or try to improve its taste by adding lemon or mint ( Top 10 Health Benefits of Lemon Water ), drinking warm water deserves a special place in your morning rituals and here are 6 reasons to start doing it right away:
#1. Detoxifies organs
Drinking a cup of warm water as soon as you wake up will help you clean your body from harmful toxins and metabolic waste by stimulating the decomposition of food in the digestive system and improving its function.
#2. Provides a strong metabolic boost
It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to lose weight or not – we all need a good metabolic boost from time to time.
Drinking warm water is beneficial for your metabolic rate and will set you up for a great start of the day. It will also help you get rid of stomachaches caused by a sluggish metabolism and poor digestion. 7 Ways to Optimize Your Metabolism and Burn Calories Faster.
#3. Alleviates pain
Warm water is one of the most efficient natural remedies for menstrual cramps, stomachaches and headaches since it enhances circulation and helps relax the muscles and calm the body, alleviating any pain, cramps and spasms.
However, regular daily consumption is required for best results.
#4. Aids weight loss
By improving the metabolic rate and raising body temperature, warm water can increase fat burning.
If you’re already practicing a fat loss diet, the habit of drinking warm water every morning will accelerate the results even further.
#5. Slows down aging
As we mentioned above, warm water is ideal for detoxifying the body. This cleansing process helps the body eliminate accumulated toxins and reverse the effect of harmful free radicals.
Among other things, these compounds can cause illness and premature aging of the skin by reducing its vitality and elasticity. Drink warm water every morning to give your skin back its smoothness and to improve the health of all body cells.
When we are at aging, scientists have found that protein can slow down aging.
#6. Protects hair health
Another great benefit of warm water is its positive effect on hair vitality – drinking warm water supports the health of hair roots and their nerve endings and promotes shiny, soft hair.
Furthermore, by keeping your scalp well-hydrated, it can stimulate faster hair growth and help you keep dandruff away.

I always thought that drinking cold water was better because it takes energy to heat the water, burning more calories.
Yes, it does it takes about 45 minutes to warm to your body temperature. Which causes 6 to 8 calories to be burned per 8 oz.
How many calories? 2? Did they say? Most actions calories burned are documented. That was probably a click bait comment that will become a wives tale by being passed from one person to another.😬😜. It has been proven hot water helps with bowel movements. Most of the other things make at least a little more sense than the burning calories story. IMO
So didn’t I, weird how things change throughout the years. Like don’t put babies on their back when they sleep ect
That is my reason for eating ice cream too … the body has to work more to warm back up. 😀
Lmao… good for you Mia! I’m with you!
1 nutritional calorie = 1000
You can’t win on the heat exchange. Unfortunately.
That was a good idea.. how was the ice cream. Have you ever ate it too fast and got a ice cream head ach
I always thought cold water was better as well .
Always learning new things.
Actually, drinking cold water is not good for your body system.
Funny, my cardiologist instructed me to drink cold water for afib. Imagine that! Something that’s not good for your body is actually life saving. The only time water is NOT good for your body is when you drink too much. It doesn’t matter whether it’s warm or cold, what matters is the benefit you are trying to achieve.
Exactly ! I drink cold water at the time.
I drink room temperature water first thing as I wake up each morning it works wonders cleansing my bowels
That’s exactly what I do myself.
I do the same. I heard years ago that a cup of tap water (not cold) was good for your esophagus when you first awake.
Thanks for this information, I have IBS-C I’m starting this regimen in the morning.
I’ve had a week of hell w/my 30 yr young daughter in pain they finally found blood clots in her leg they told us it hit her lung 4/days later they said I’d didn’t, now after 9 days in hospital she was sent home , I wake up with a lump behind my left knee ?????😳🤔 needless to say I left a lot out of everything that’s happening I still don’t know where or what this is behind my knee my dr can’t see me until next week??? Any advice I have little trust in doctors since C*vid , sad but true after my sh*tshow of a week!!😢
Could be a Bakers Cyst
My son had what they called Baker Cysts when he was a child. They were big lumps behind his knees. They eventually went away on their own as he got older. We didn’t want to do surgery on them. Not sure if it happens to older people.
Yes it does happen to older generation. My 95 yr. old mom had one
If you think or suspect it is a clot this isn’t a time think or worry about c*vid. Put a mask on and go to the ER ASAP. Sorry for being so blunt but if you’re worried about c*vid, a clot can kill you in an instant! No joke.
Best of luck and please go into the ER.
Sorry you feel that way about someone who chose to go to medical school to become qualified to practice medicine and found those blood clots. Happy your daughter is on the mend. She will likely have to be on blood thinners for a bit. I had the same issue and my doctor found the pulmonary embolism.
Advise from complete strangers is just that.. advice from unqualified strangers!
I had pulmonary embolism in both lungs. There is an excellent awareness and support group on Facebook called stop the clot and there is a pulmonary embolism support group. Great post clot fitness support and resources for both patient and family.
You don’t know they are unqualified just because they are strangers. If someone says they have a lump or a swollen bit in their leg, it’s not bad advice to say it could possibly be a deep vein thrombosis. The lady may not have considered this. If she were to wait a week to see her GP it could be fatal.
Flax seed is a natural blood thinner plus has many other health benefits without the chemical side effects.
My daughter had a “bakers cyst” behind her knee. Just came on with no warning? You might check that out online to see if any of your symptoms relate? Sorry cannot pass on any “remedies” because I am not aware of how she was treated by her doctor. Hope you get some answers soon. GOD Bless ..
I’ve been dealing with a baker’s cyst behind my knee for a couple of years. It gets worse with physical activity like hiking or walking. X rays showed a little cartilage loss but only about 10%. I read that doctors just drain it but it can return. I found the Osmo patch which drains it naturally. Still comes returns tho. I’m now on my 5th remedy trial and so far so good….fingers crossed. I’m taking type II collagen which comes from chicken sternum. I had been taken other forms of collagen, but this one apparently works in dissolving the little lumps caused by platelets (there was a whole scientific explanation for this which I can’t remember) which cause poor drainage around the knees and causes the bakers cyst. I just wanted to share my experience. I’m still on a quest for healing.
You might have a Baker’s Cyst. A fluid -filled swelling at the back of your leg. At the bent area. It will feel like a small ball. It causes pain in the knee and the calf. Glad your daughter was released from the hospital. Sending prayers and hugs to you both.
A lump behind the knee could indicate a ‘baker’s cyst’ and it should be examined by your family doctor to see what should be done about it.
My brother-in-law had one, and he didn’t do anything about it, and it must have broken and affected his leg. It took quite a while, but he recovered from it. People think only ‘baker’s get this cyst, but it is sometimes caused by something hurting in the knee, and then it developes.
Im a caregiver for the elderly and I’ve recently had to take a little 90yr old man to the Dr for his right foot swollen awful,they said he had a cyst behind his knee and they said for him to keep his leg propped up as much as possible and it’d go away on its own.
Look into natokinase
I would advise you find a doctor who will run tests before labeling the lumps and will explain and treat them with home treatment maintenance. Know your doctor. They have spent years being educated in order to get that MD behind their name
Omg this is what keep happening to me, I had told them for months, then when I was blue lighted into hospital I kept saying it until they did a ultrasound and guess what they found!!!! A massive blood clot behind my knee, 3 dvt’s in total and Iv been on medication for 3months now for this …. No care anymore, it’s all about ticking boxes and budgets! Not looking after people or given care or support, Iv been waiting for treatment since May but others have been waiting 1,2,& even 3 years left in pain without care or have given up and died 🤷🏻♀️😡🤷🏻♀️ This is the uk now unfortunately
Don’t give up on all doctors because you have had a bad experience with one or two. It’s better to search out a new doctor that can solve your medical problem than to be angry at all doctors and die from your illness.
It’s called a bakers cyst. They can be drained, but they come back. If you just leave it they go away in about a week. I never had one drained.
You get them if you have knee trouble like bone on bone or meniscus problems.
May be a Bakers cyst, I’ve had one for years.
It becomes itchy and annoying at times but is otherwise harmless. BUT you need to get it checked in case it is something else.
Lori, Please have the lump looked at by your Dr. and by a surgeon. Five year ago i felt a lump on the inside of my knee. Hadn’t noticed it before, but it turned out to be a tumor and i was diagnosed with a rare cancer called synovial sarcoma starting a very difficult journey of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. I’m not trying to alarm you, but an innocent lump can turn out to be something serious. Better to find out what it is. Best of luck.🙏🏼
Probably DVT if it feels warm and calf is swollen. You need to go to A & E before it turns worse .
Deep vein thrombosis
Prob a cyst just keep urleg elevated as much as possible and drink plenty if water
Depending on lifestyles, mind swells due to Baker’s cyst.
After my heart attack, cold water would trigger my afib. So, everyone is different. Warm water may work for some and not others.
I have AFib! Are you supposed to drink the cold water during the palpitations, or anytime?
That’s interesting. I wonder if it helps A FIB because it engages the vagus nerve which can slow heart rate.
Correct! Water should be taken @ room temperature. The natural way , if you add icy, is not natural anymore.
Yeah, but well….
That’s what I was taught!
You are true
I have been consuming cold water in an empty stomach for years. However a year ago l started doing things differently drinking hot water instead of cold water and my life has has changed deastically. I’ve lost weight and my skin is flawless and smooth.
Really ? Thanks for sharing this valuable info with us Zanele.
That is amazing! Starting now I’m drinking hot water at least in the morning. I love love love cold water . It’s all I drink but I’m going to have it hot or warm in the a m from now on.
The warm or hotter water gets into your system faster. I put lemon in mine. If you have pain anywhere that’s from inflammation. The water on an empty stomach will start detoxing your body. You might only notice you have to pee more. Keep doing it daily 1st thing. One day you will notice your joints feel better, your skin looks better, your hair, your gums. I use to have a paper on what warm lemon water does for your body. I can’t find it anywhere. A ortho surgeon I worked for gave it to me. Him and 2 medical students did a study and wrote a paper that was published in the early 60’s. Let me know how y’all feel in a few weeks.
Thank you for sharing Zanele,I will try that too
Meshack Nyagawa i have also been drinking hot water for 30 days, now i manage to last longer in bed due to the constant circulation of blood not only that but also i have managed to reduce 3.5 kg only in one month.
NB:For fast results, add some walking miles and reduce carbohydrates intake..
LOL. I get it.
How warm should the water be like room temp or heated and if heated is there a difference in microwave or stove top?
Research suggests temperatures between 130 and 160°F (54 and 71°C). Think of hot tea, it should be hot but not burn your mouth or throat and stomach.
I drink warm water from the kettle, I don’t let the kettle boil. You can add a little cold water to make it room temperature.
Wow!!! I’m so glad that I read this! I am going to try it! Thanks so much for your positive reviews.
I have always known drinking water on an empty stomach helps a lot and I have been doing that for years now but the warm water routine is better. Thanks a lot for this wonderful information. I will need more informations.
Such a powerful revelation, I too am glad I read this till the end and also the positive comments that followed, I’m definitely in, this makes Me happy, thank you for sharing🎉🎊🥳💖💕
I have been squeezing half a lemon into a mug of warm water and drinking it on an empty stomach for about a year now. I don’t have a coffee or anything to eat for at least 15 minutes. I have lost weight generally, but more specifically around my mid section. My stomach issues including acid reflux have disappeared (but I have also stopped drinking red wine). Age spots on the back of my hands have faded to almost non existent and my skin is generally much better. I read about it on some website and decided to give it a try…….glad that I did.
In the book The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, the elderly Chinese grandfather drank a cup of hot water every morning. It seems that this was once common in their peasant culture because the poorer people could not afford tea. My understanding anyway.
Well, thanks for all the good information. I will get up and start today and keep you posted. Thanks
I had a sociology teacher from China. He even brought up that we should drink room temp water and never cold, especially when we are hot from exertion or just hot in general.
Hi. One question wasn’t answered above. Does warming in microwave change the benefits? My room temperature early morning is 66 degrees Fahrenheit.
Not sure if microwave changes anything. Just put it on the stove 🙂
They say adding acv to warm water helps with weight loss
Apple Cider Vinegar ? Yes it could help.
Wow I’m going to try this, love and peace ☮️ to you all 🌈💫
I drink water from the tap every morning and sure enough the toilet calls you very early. But should I warn the water or the normal pipe temperature is good enough. Thanks for the advice.
Warm water cones from the water heater . You shouldn’t drink that water. Best to microwave or stove top
True, water from a water heater is dirty. Sediments at the bottom of the heater will be in the water. Even cooking, I always use cold water and not hot from the heater. Once a year a attach a garden hose to the bottom of the heater and drain. You will see what I’m talking about. Even cold water should run a few seconds before placing it into a cup for drinking or cooking. Lead may be in the pipe fittings.
I drink room temperature water from my 5-gallon jug, only have to wait for it to be pumped into the glass! Too many minerals in my tap water.
I have been drinking warm lemon water every morning for almost a year. Not only does it hydrate, but also a dose of vitamin C. My skin is much more clear.
Drinking hot plain water is good for the body because most of the priests I’ve known they never drink coffee nor milk or chocolate so it boost their metabolism and after serving the mass when they go back they eat fruits of different kinds, why do I know this it’s because I I usually join the ladies serving and doing the collections and my keen observation on the matters in all affairs of the church (Catholic)I can still remember their routine everyday.
Drinking warm water every morning has been my medicine for years, helped me with cramps and blood circulation and I have not been to the hospital for years.I am so blessed by God.
Thank you I was able to read it to my stubborn husband
Now here’s a believer
Anybody know if it’s ok to drink a cup of coffee after drinking the hot or warm water? or should I wait a bit?
Thanks for info. Will try this. I have been drinking cold water on empty stomach for years. Thanks
It has been known for at least decades that hot water with lemon first thing in the morning gets ‘things’ moving and you get a bit of vitamin C in the works. I heard it was something that models did to keep them slim.
If I normally start my day with a mug of coffee should I have a glass of water first. Would having both back to back be beneficial or harmful?
Not sure to be honest. I haven’t read any studies about combining them.
I keep hearing not to have coffee until water. Preferably water and lemon.
Is it alright to drink hot lemon tea? Or just hot water with real lemon
Yes, lemon water is great as well
Hi I use water from the tap 2 glasses every morning and it is very beneficial to me bowel movement and it make me really feel refreshing.
Thanks for the information on Drinking glass of hot water on an empty stomach and adding lemon for flavor and Vitamin C .This is something I am starting tomorrow morning.I have a lot of gastro problem even after a colonoscopy and other medical problems.that this information could help me with too.so I keep you updated on my progress.Thanks
I too have horrible troubles with my digestive track … stage 4 cancer ilium with liver Mets, GERDS, over production of acid is the newest issue and has been absolutely aweful. I end up vomitting, diarrhea and passing out. Calling 911 for ambulance and off to ER. This happens several times a year. I am still recovering from my last trip and it’s miserable. I will try this and pray it helps!!🙏🙏🙏
Good luck Lauren. Thinking of you🥰
Hi. I speak Spanish and there’s a team of doctors that is proven that can cure cancer and I’m trying to fin their phone number to ask if they can speak English. Doctorheal7. I’ll let you know if I find something.
Does hot tea do the same thing or does water have to be plain?
Drinking warm water is good for health but my problem is that I’ve lost a lot weight due to illness can you please help me, what can I do to drink warm water and don’t loose weight
Make sure you are eating enough calories during the day to sustain or gain some weight. Also make sure those calories come from healthy food sources.
I always start my day hy drinking this 1th thing in the morning…
Hot water/1/2 lemon juice/1 tbl spoon of organic apple cider vinegar/ bit of honey
A very good way to remove toxins
Would having a lemon in the hot water reduce any of these benefits?
Putting some lemon juice in the water will actually be beneficial. Just make sure the water is not too hot.
Wow, I have also been drinking cold water every morning when I get up. Thank you so much for this important information. I will start tomorrow morning drinking warm water. I need help with all 6 of those things.
Will be starting on cup of hot water in am . So glad I read this!
Can’t u just use hot tea ?
Yes, you probably could use tea with some lemon as well
How many times doing a day To drink this hot water is it once a day or twice a day
In the morning, just one glass of warm water. Then you go back to drinking as usual.
Wow…I’ve been drinking room temp water every morning, followed by hot tea…Im going start with warm..tea hot like water, thank you🙋🏽
Tea contains (in most cases) tannic acid, caffeine, and small amounts of various other chemicals. Why, if you are trying to detox your body, would you do it by introducing more HEATED chemicals into it when your stomach is empty. The whole point is to flush your system. I am quite sure all of us are capable of getting down 8-12 oz of warm water every morning without it having to be flavored.
i am starting this routine tomorrow morning. i’m gonna give it 30 days to see if i feel or look different. i will post again in 30 days to let y’all know the results. 😊
Can I do green tea with lemon juice in the bottle it’s concentrated and last little longer in the refrigerator and honey. I am a diabetic need to lose weight. Please send input.
I love my green tea too but start the morning with just the warm/hot water with fresh lemon. Then have your green tea 2 hours later.
Im gonna also give the hot water in the a.m. a try
Been drinking cold for a while 30 days Im starting 4/3/22 I hope it helps
Hot or warm water every morning on empty stomach is absolutely perfect it reduces aging. I actually loved to eat ginger and lemon then after I take the hot water.
Great tip and I love to drink my Elder berry tea as it boost your body with great benifts
This sounds too good to be true, but I’m sure going to try this! My first thing in the morning is my coffee. I could definitely use help in improving my skin hair and weight. I’m starting tomorrow 04/11/22 morning! Will keep you updated👍
I am trying tomorrow morning. My fingers are crossed for good results
I to have been drinking cold water in the morning’s. I REALLY WISH I WOULD’VE KNOWN THIS YEARS AGO N I WOULDN’T have the problem that I have right now. I’m so glad I came across this & now for now on I’m doing this every single morning for low on. Thank you 🙏 so much.
I’ve been drinking warm water first thing in the morning because i read the benefits in lowering blood pressure or preventing hypertension. I however realised it reduced tummy fat, just like that in less than a month since i started
F&P Admin, first off, many thanks for reinforcing q routine that I’ve been practising for years, with great results. However, in your response to George’s enquiry about tea as an option, I think you should have advised that it should be absolutely WITHOUT sugar and milk. Once again, thanks!
Thank you for letting me know about the warm water in morning
Wow I have been drinking 6 glasses of cold water
For years! I’m 69 and just had a major foot surgery. Been off of my foot for 2 months. I’ve put on weight. I’m going to do this ! I’m so glad I opened this site up .
I will definitely try this.
I was an LPN for almost 12years and I just wanted to let you guys know that even if you drink the warm tea, whether it be regular or green, always make sure that you drink the water as well. Water does provide all of these amazing benefits that all of you are experiencing but tea has caffeine in it and will not give you the results that just good ole hot water will. God bless all of you!!
I have been drinking warm water first thing since I was a small boy. My mother always did it and encouraged the family to do it.
I use cooled freshly boiled water, rinse out my mouth first then drink the rest.
I always feel it cleanses the palette and the inner organs, the kidneys etc.
Can I do this by drinking tea? I have that already. But I do drink some water when I get up as well
Yes drinking teas should have similar benefits.
What if you are a diabetic and don’t need to lose Annie weight could it still be beneficial and not make you lose weight
Water just helps you lose weight, it doesn’t make you lose weight. The results won’t be dramatic.
Gm. This is great. i am and Indian and many Indians is this practice for years. It definitely benefits in digestive systems and detoxification. Important to follow it correctly. We follow below rules.
1. Brush your teeth and clean tongue very night. Reason is when we have water in the morning you should drink before brushing. Since mouth was cleaned and overnight engymes in the Saliva, it helps better when you drink water.
2. After drinking water, do not eat/drink anything for at least 30-45 min. This helps water to better for detoxification.
3. Do not take big water gulps. Sit down and take small sip and drink whole large glass in about 5-10 min.
It helped me with my acidity, heartburns and some migraines as well. I am glad to say that those are gone shortly after started practicing water therapy.
I’ve lost weight already and wouldn’t like to loose too much 2 or 3 kg’s will be okay. I like the health benefits. How do I do this?
Be sure to regulate your diet. If you don’t want to lose weight make sure you eat adequate amounts of protein and carbs
How much water in the
Just a simple glass – 250-300ml
After drinking the hot water, do you have to wait a certain amount of time before having breakfast?
Waiting about 40 min to an hour for the water to pass through the system would be ok
Oh you mean have a cup of coffee in the morning, brilliant.
What about coffee? I drink black coffee every morning ?
It has its own benefits, but it’s not the same
Is it okay to take a Probiotic while on the warm water regimen.
Yes, but probiotics should be taken after a meal as they get destroyed by the stomach acid if taken on an empty stomach.
What? Taking in a meal increases stomach acid to digest the protein in the foods. Stomach acid would be higher with a meal and much less on an empty stomach. Taking an enteric coated probiotic should release in the intestines and not the stomach.
Not exactly true. An empty stomach has higher acidity than a full stomach. Here’s what experts have to say – https://www.drzembroski.com/why-taking-probiotics-on-an-empty-stomach-is-a-bad-idea/
Room temperature water is easier and the fastest way the water will get digested cold water is good as well except when severely over heated and dehydrated can pulling up your body in shock speaking from experience working as bricklayers laborer happened twice everything cramps almost seizure like also none stop vomiting so im guessing hot water might be to much in some situations I’d stick with room temperature hands down best way but ask your doctors because everyone reacts differently
It’s funny that my grandmother was born in P.R. and every morning she would do the same thing , before coffee or anything else it had to be a warm or hot cup of water , every time and live to 102 years old , I guess older people are the wise ones!!!!
My grandmother did the same in late 40’s, always wondered why, now I know and will begin tomorrow!
I drink a nestle dumped bottle of cold water half an hour before I have breakfast. After lunch I drink a glass of hot lemon water with canderel sweetener in and after supper I drink the dumped again. I do feel better.
Do I have to drink every glass of water I have throughout the day as hot water or is it just the first glass of the morning? Please advise!
Only the first water in the morning.
Musician great Duke Ellington drank a cup of hot water every morning.
Hi I am dibetic2 and I have spasams every morning &I have edema can this work for me I also have swallowed feet to
I am not sure Denise. The best thing would be to consult a medical professional regarding the diabetes issues.
I never got a response from you
asked could it work for me to.
And to you!!!!!!!!
I have drunk warm water with a sliver of lemon morning and evening for years and at 51 I am always being told I don’t look my age and am generally fit and healthy, I do exercise regularly too and have a fairly good diet, hope that doesn’t sound arrogant but I feel I am living proof that this is true
Millions of people worldwide have been drinking hot after every morning for generations. I drink two cups of warm water every morning myself. I have very clear skin, weigh 117 lbs at 63yrs. I do make the water a bit more palatable with coffee for flavoring. A few friends of mine do the same, some use tea instead. I’m not sure hot water in the morning is a new phenomenon. 🙂
How much water should I drink?
one glass in the morning! 200-300ml
What temperature water is considered warm water?
25-35 degrees celsuis
Got to try this method!!…I have always drank cold water but starting in the morning I will definitely drink it hot. Thanks for the tip.
I have been having a lump on my right breast for years now without any pains. But for the last few years I started having pains around my armpits, headaches, fever and pains in my joints and muscles. Also having redness of eyes. Pls what can I do.
Jane, It’s best if you see a medical professional. Drinking water on an empty stomach has its benefits, but it is not a medicine.
Great to drink the water in AM. I also drink hot water with meals to aid digestion. Then consume tea or coffee after if I want to.
I know this to be true because I have been drinking it for years and I feel great. People say I dont look 77yrs old
I have horrible health. I have only ever drunk water – all the time no other beverages and for about 20 years that water has been warm or hot. It’s just a preference. No good health effects whatsoever.
So sorry to hear about that Sara. However, although it helps at keeping your health good, water is not a miracle cure. A person’s health depends on many other factors such as food, stress, genes etc.
This sounds fabulous & I plan on doing it also! I’m going to leave the lemon out though! I don’t think it sounds like a good thing for my teeth! I have actually seen the erosion on teeth that is caused by too much lemon. It’s not pretty. Thank you for this tip!
I agree that drinking warm water helps reduce aging and helps hair vitality. I drank warm water this morning 1st thing.
Guys it’s not cold water. It’s room temperature water. Reader think you are getting the water from the refrigerator.
I’ve drunk warm water & lemon juice every morning since I was a teenager & my. daughter has done the same. I’m a little slower now than I was but very few people guess my age correctly. I will celebrate my 96th birthday in 3 months & to celebrate, I’ll have an extra glass of warm water & lemon juice & look forward to 2027 !!
I drink nothing but water. Lately I’ve been feeling unwell so visited the doctor. He asked how much tea, coffee, alcohol I drink and was surprised to hear I drink only cold water. He asked how much I drink in a day. I told him around 5ltrs. The doctor said I was drinking far to much water and I was washing all the electrolytes out of my body and that was why I was feeling unwell. He told me to limit myself to two ltrs per day. I did what he advised and haven’t felt unwell since.
Who knew drinking to much water was bad for you!!!!!
Well 5l is really too much if you are not spending the water (training intensely for a long period of time). And if you do need that much water it’s always recommended to include some extra electrolytes (especially potassium and sodium) and other minerals in your diet. The doctor was right about washing out the electrolytes.
I remember when I was a little girl my Great Grandmother would drink a warm/hot cup of water every morning. She lived to 98 years.
So thankful I’ve opened this and read & followed conversation. I’ve learned a lot and when take time to think about ; it all makes sense.
I’m going to try it and share the concept with others!!
Thank you sooo much for this blessing of healthy wisdom 🙏🏽
It’s pretty funny how the majority of everybody on this thread was only talking about the benefit of losing weight…. but bypassed the real reason we should be drinking warm water in the morning the other five items…. Lose weight stop eating processed food… 😎
Thanks for this article that provides a simple suggestion for healthful living that doesn’t involve buying something!! Great act of loving kindness.
I have been doing that for years, it’s really good. Thank you
Going to add this routine to my life starting tomorrow morning been having some inflammation problems lately so this will be interesting because I know exactly how are you will feel is it has any effect at all in the very near future within 30 days I would say no and I would like to leave a comment hopefully hundred percent positive I do believe it will be. Thank you for all the information on the subject.👍🇺🇸✝️🙏
