    Role of Water on Stomach

    There is secretion of gastric juices in the stomach to digest food. The more concentrated the gastric juices, the better the digestion of food.

    If someone takes liquid, whether it is water, wine or beer, the gastric juices will not remain concentrated. They would be diluted by the intake of water, wine or beer and would not be effective in digestion of food.

    Similarly, if a person takes water six or eight times while taking his meal, it would dilute gastric juices so much that they will not be able to act as digestive juice.

    Do not take water at all during meals. If you have to take it, take a very small quantity, so that gastric juices may be absorbed in all eaten food.

    If you feel thirsty after one hour or more of taking food, please take water in limited quantity. The body, especially the stomach, needs water at intervals, from time to time to liquidate Its juices. ID increase its quantity and to absorb the solid material (food), The body itself informs whenever it needs it. Sometimes, the desire to lake water is less and sometimes it is more, One should be particular about the intake, whether il is from a healthy or sick stomach. One should lake water as much as is sufficient and good for health.

    Water should be taken at regular intervals especially when one is suffering from fever. One should not take a glass of water in one go but every five or ten minutes in less quantity. Intake of water at a stretch by a patient of fever will not quench his thirst, rather it would increase other symptoms of illness.

    Water taken in less quantity is at once accepted and absorbed by stomach. Repetition of its intake at each half hour produces juices in more quantity and removes dullness and constipation by flowing in the body and intestines. It cools them also.

    One can use luke-warm water or cold water according to one's taste.
