Water as elixir of life
But one is very important. To drink water in a right way. A plain full glass of water without honey or lime or anything, the first thing in the morning as soon as you get up after brushing your teeth is really helpful.
It will ease out the gastrocolic reflex, which means, it stimulates your entire bowels and over a period of time can correct poor bowel habits. Water with some addons is also good, but its real effect varies from from person to person. but the point is, plain water in the morning is good for everyone.
Throughout the day drinking water after regular intervals is always good and these small changes go a long way. When water is taken by itself, it gets absorbed in the intestines and goes through kidneys thus regulating various body functions. But, if you drink a glass of water after eating a fibre rich fruit or vegetable, the fibre absorbs the water before being absorbed by the intestines and as the fibre flows through the bowels, the water content also flows through and gives the effect of a sponge cleaning your bowels. This is an excellent remedy for constipation. This makes you to eat a good amount of fibre. Fibre not only cleans your bowels it tends you make you full quickly, but does not let you gain weight as quickly. So fibre helps in WEIGHT-LOSS too.
Good health and wellness is really just a way of life and sometimes as easy as making the best use of the water you drink.
But one thing we should always keep in mind. You should not expect instant results. It always takes time for your body to get used to the new environment and habit.
