“Usha Kaala Chikitsa” is the Sanskrit coinage for water therapy. According to this ancient system, 1.5 liters of water should be drunk without even brushing the teeth. It is very essential to note that no drinks (like tea, coffee, and milk) or any form of solid food should be taken within half an hour to one hour before and after drinking 1.5 liters of water. Using any form of alcoholic drink the previous night is strictly prohibited.

When should I brush my teeth while doing water therapy ?

The previous night before going to bed, if you clean your teeth and gums (gums with hand) and next morning if your mouth is not smelling bad then you may rinse your mouth with water and gently brush with your hands and do water therapy almost immediately.

If your mouth has a foul smell and if you are not comfortable with the above approach, brush your teeth and then do water therapy after 5 minutes.

Should it be drunk all at once? Why not split the water and drink throughout the day?

To clean the body one has to take a shower. One cannot keep pouring little water throughout the day to clean the body. Similarly one cannot argue that water can do its cleaning action by drinking several cups of water throughout the day. To clean you have to shower the internal body with 1.5 liters of water in the morning. Drinking water throughout the day is for thirst. Water therapy is not for thirst but for flushing all the toxins out of body and to regain good health.

Should I measure and drink water?

The stomach is a muscular sac that can hold about 1.5 liters (1.6 quarts) of fluid. The stomach can expand to hold up to 4 L (4.2 qts.) of food, more than 50 times its empty volume.

Should I use a bottle or measure in cups and drink water?

Take one and a half liter bottle, fill it with water and start drinking directly from the bottle. Keep drinking as much as you can. If you cannot empty it all at once give a 5 minutes gap and then drink the rest of the water. Again, if you need it, give another gap of 5 minutes and empty the bottle. Keep doing this everyday and you will notice that in a few day you can empty the bottle all at once. This is the best way to do the water therapy.

Taste of water satiates the tongue. Therefore, by pouring water directly in the throat and avoiding contact with the tongue, one can drink one and a half liters of water with ease. Care should be taken not to choke while doing direct drinking.

There is another way. Measure 1.5 liters in cups and drink cup after cup. However, most people start feeling satiated sooner when you measure and drink in cups.

The best is to drink directly from a 1.5 liter or 1.6 quart bottle.

How will Water Therapy Help in Weight Loss

When you drink water first thing in the morning, your body will start to flush out a lot of toxins and extra salt. This also makes you urinate frequently in the first hour. When toxins and salt are flushed out, water held in the body is also released. The more salt and toxins are in the body, the more water is retained making you feel and look bloated.

Water is needed for all the different types of reactions in the body. The breaking down of fat requires enzymes to work on the fat. All enzyme reactions in the body require water as the solvent. So without adequate water, no matter how much you diet, you’re not going to lose any fat. Water consumption is very important in weight loss.

With Water therapy and also drinking about 2 glasses before a normal lunch and dinner will help you curb your appetite and you’ll eat less.

Dieting Techniques

There is no real necessity to go on a dieting technique. Dieting techniques are plenty, and if you want to try one, you can choose from the many different types of dieting techniques found online. Water therapy will reinforce any dieting technique you’re following.

Some people like to starve thinking they’ll lose weight, but starving is one of the worst techniques you can follow. When you starve for a period of time, your body is deprived of food. The next time you decide to eat even if it is less than normal, your body will convert it to fat as fast as possible, as a preventive measure from being deprived of food. So, another no-no in weight loss dieting techniques is starving.

No matter what dietary technique you use, do the water therapy together with it. You can also try to have a normal diet with reduced carbohydrates, sugar and with lots of fruits and vegetables with water therapy and you’ll definitely lose weight.

Preventing Infections in Children:

Parents are often frustrated by how often their children are sick, especially if they are in day care. Its impossible for preventing infections in children. It is normal for young children to have six to eight upper respiratory tract infections and two or three gastrointestinal infections each year. Children in day care can often have more (often called day care syndrome). As your child gets older, infections in children will lessen as his immune system will strengthen and he will build up immunity to many common infections and he will get sick less often.

To understand why your child has such frequent infections and seems like he is always sick, it can help to understand how infections are transmitted. Except for blood transmission, children are at high risk of catching illnesses caused by the methods described below because they are always putting their hands and other objects into their mouths. Also, younger children have not had the chance to build up a strong immunity to these common infections.

To prevent infections, you should teach your children and care providers to practice frequent handwashing, especially after using the bathroom (including diaper changes) and before eating. You should also frequently wash toys and other objects that your children put in their mouth and all other surfaces and dispose of tissues after wiping or blowing your child’s nose.

Other tips to help avoid catching infections include avoiding close contact with other people who are sick. Make sure that your day care has a strict policy about excluding children with contagious illnesses. This does not always help though, because most illnesses are contagious for a day or two before you even have symptoms. Once your child develops symptoms, he has probably already infected other people he has been in contact with.

Infections are caused by viruses, bacteria, and parasites and your child will get an infection from one of these agents if your child is not immune and he comes into contact with someone who already has an infection. Some infections require that you come into direct contact with the infection for it to be contagious. These include impetigo, scabies, lice, chickenpox, cold sores, ringworm and pinkeye. Frequent handwashing and keeping infected areas covered can help prevent spread of these illnesses.

Other infections are spread by respiratory transmission, in which respiratory droplets from an infected persons lungs, nose or mouth are spread to another person. The droplets can spread through the air directly onto another person, or may land or be placed on another surface, which is then touched by another person. If that person then touches his eyes or mouth, he can become infected. Infections spread by respiratory droplets include the common cold, chickenpox, pertussis, pneumonia, the flu and many other viral illnesses.

Infections can also be spread by fecal oral transmission, which occurs when someone comes into contact with stool that is infected. A person’s hands or other objects can become infected by tiny pieces of stool, especially after diaper changes. The infectious particles can then find there way into someones mouth and cause infection. Illnesses caused in this manner include diarrhea, pinworms, and hepatitis A.

Lastly, infections can spread through contact with the blood of someone is infected with HIV, Hepatitis B or C, or cytomegalovirus

Cow’s milk is the most common cause of food allergies (in addition to being a common cause of food intolerances). Unlike cow’s milk intolerance which is usually a reaction to the sugar lactose, allergies to cow’s milk are usually from the proteins that are in the milk. Infants who have an allergy to cow’s milk based formulas should usually be changed to an elemental or hydrolyzed formula, such as Nutramigen or Alimentum. Soy formulas and goat’s milk may not be good alternatives in this case, although they usually are for older children, because many infants with allergies to cow’s milk proteins are also allergic to the proteins in soy and goat’s milk.

Other foods to avoid if your child is allergic to cow’s milk include, but are not limited to, buttermilk, cheese, evaporated and condensed milk, ice cream, yogurt, instant mashed potatoes, margarine, casein, cream, hydrolysates, lactalbumin, nougat, sour cream, whey, and other foods made with milk. Older children who are unable to drink milk or eat milk based foods should be sure to have additional sources of calcium in their diet, including calcium fortified juices.

Eggs, especially the proteins in egg whites are also a common cause of food allergies. To help prevent allergies to eggs, it is a good idea to avoid giving egg whites to infants under a year old. Other foods to avoid include, but are not limited to foods that are derived from eggs, including egg substitutes, and foods that contain albumin, globulin, ovalbumin and vitellin. Also avoid foods that are prepared with eggs, which may include French toast, cake, cookies, pancakes, eggnog, bread, ice cream, pasta, puddings, creamy salad dressings and foods with custard or cream fillings.

Suggestion: To prevent allergies to eggs, it is a good idea to avoid giving egg whites to infants under a year old.

Soybean allergies are usually found in infants given a soy formula, but can also be found in older children who drink soy milk. Other foods that contain soy proteins and may cause allergic symptoms in children allergic to soy include, but are not limited to tofu, miso soup, soy sauce, foods prepared in soybean oil, veggie burgers and hot-dogs, and ingredients on a food labile including emulsifiers, hydrolyzed or textured vegetable protein.

Wheat allergy can develop in infants given a wheat cereal, and is probably best to offer a rice or oat cereal first and delay giving wheat until after your child is 6-8 months old. Other foods that may cause problems in children allergic to wheat include, but are not limited to many breads and cereals (unless they are made from oats, rye, corn or rice) made with wheat flour or enriched flour. Also avoid foods with cornstarch, gluten, semolina, all purpose or white flour.

Peanuts are not true nuts, but rather are actually legumes from the pea and bean family. Children with allergies to peanuts can be very sensitive to foods with even very small amounts of peanuts in them. Avoid all foods with peanuts, including candy, baked goods, chili, many ethnic foods (including Thai, Asian, and Indonesian foods), peanut butter, and mixed nuts. Children who are allergic to peanuts can often eat tree nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, since they are from separate plant families.

Tree nut allergies are also possible, and can include allergies to walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds and hazel nuts and other nuts in hard shells. You should avoid foods prepared with tree nuts, including many kinds of candy, baked goods and different oils.

Corn is rarely a cause of food allergies. If your child does seem to be allergic to corn, you should avoid corn based cereals and breads, corn syrup, and caramel.

Certain food dyes and preservatives, especially sulfites, may also cause food allergy symptoms.

 

Important Reminders:

  • While children often outgrow their food allergies, if your child had a severe reaction to a food, then you should talk with your Pediatrician or allergist before reintroducing the food.
  • Talk with and educate other family members and caregivers about your child’s food allergies. Most people do not understand how serious food allergies can be, and may think it is all right to give just a small amount of a food that your child is allergic to.
  • Educate your child about his allergy, so that he can learn to avoid foods that he is allergic to.
  • If your child does not improve with these interventions or if he has had a severe allergic reaction, then you should consider having him see an allergy specialist for testing to figure out what foods he is allergic to and to possibly start allergy injections.
  • Children with severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis should wear a medical alert bracelet to notify others of his condition and should carry an epinephrine autoinjector (such as the EpiPen JR) to ensure rapid treatment during an allergic reaction.
  • Most importantly, learn to read food labels and look for ingredients that your child may be allergic to and practice strict avoidance of those foods. If you don’t know what an ingredient is, then call the manufacturer before giving it to your child to be safe.
