How much water should you drink for water therapy?

“At least” how many glasses of water do you drink daily if you want the benefits of water therapy?

Answer #1


One form of water therapy is the consuming of a gutful of water upon waking in order to “cleanse the bowel”. A liter to a liter and half is the common amount ingested.

One liter is 33 ounces. That’s four 8-oz glasses, so a liter and a half would be six 8oz. glasses.

Be careful if planning to do this. While ingesting about a litre and a half of water is usually harmless, this is approaching the level which can lead to water intoxication, an urgent and dangerous medical condition.
