Usha paana chikitsa or water therapy

October 31, 2007

Usha Paana Chikitsa is an ancient Indian water therapy. It claimed to be able to cure of up to 30 diseases from headache to obesity to cancer.

Early warning
: you may have read the following article dozens of times already. 99% of my search for usha paana chikitsa or water therapy shows the same result. One commented that it’s a hoax!.

The therapy says to drink six glasses (or 1.5 litres) of water as soon as you wake up, before even brushing your teeth or washing your face. The tip is to have a bottle or two by your bedside overnight since some of us (like me) are too lazy to get up even to reach for that air-condition’s remote when the room is too cold. 

No solid or liquid at least for one hour before and after gulping the seas of water. So how would you drink glasses after glasses of water in one go you think? I myself found it difficult at first so I started with two glasses on the first day; three the next day and so on. You may also go to the toilet a couple of times but this is normal after quite some time.

The following are the types of disease cured by the water therapy:

1.        Headache          2.        Kidney stones
3.        Blood Pressure/ Hypertension 4.        Urogenital diseases
5.        Anemia (Blood shortage) 6.        Hyper-acidity
7.        Rheumatism 8.        Gastroenteritis
9.        General Paralysis 10.    Dysentery
11.    Obesity 12.    Rectal Piodapse (?)
13.    Arthritis 14.    Constipation
15.    Sinusitis 16.    Hostorthobics (?)
17.    Tachycardia 18.    Diabetes
19.    Giddiness 20.    Eye diseases
21.    Cough 22.    Ophthalmic Hemorrhage
23.    Asthma 24.    Irregular menstruation
25.    Bronchitis 26.    Leukemia
27.    Pulmonary Tuberculosis 28.    Uterus and breast cancer
29.    Meningitis 30.    Laryngitis

# 12 and 16
– couldn’t find what these two are! Readers should not take this article as an alternative to medicine. I am not liable for any side-effect that readers might have as a result of this therapy but it’s worth a try. Let me know if the therapy work wonders for you or otherwise. I am trying this myself.

    Hi erik. Water is a therapy. Some people would sit by a waterfall and found that soothing and relaxing. Consuming water or like this water therapy here, is well-known to help rid of toxins in your body so my answer is, nope this is not a hoax but I have put the disclaimer above.

    I have tried this and it is true that makes you go to mr John more than normaly, I can say that I had problem with Gastroenteritis but I don’t have it any more. It is logical that everything we clean we use watter in the end ….so water cleans everything. So I belive in this therapy.

    i am pretty sure that the mysterious “piolapse”, “piodapse” and even “piodapes” should be read “prolapse”. i am currently working on the hostorthobics puzzle. that poor guy seems to be misspelled even worse 🙂

    Bless you intwist. Phew! Yes I have checked what prolapse is, thanks to you. From good ole Wikipedia: Prolapse literally means “To fall out of place.” In medicine, prolapse is a condition where organs, such as the uterus, fall down or slip out of place. It is used for organs protruding through the vagina, rectum, or for the misalignment of the valves of the heart. A spinal disc herniation is also sometimes called disc prolapse. Relating to the uterus, prolapse condition makes the organ extend inferiorly into vagina causing weakened muscles.

    Rectal prolapse is a condition in which part of the wall or the entire wall of the rectum falls out of place. In some cases, the rectum may stick out of the body (protrusion).

    Ouch! That doesnt sound good. To Water Therapy! Insya Allah.

    P/s..pls also share if you have found out what ‘hostorthobics’ is Intwist. Cheers mate.

        Eva Wanda, I am translating what Jorge Eduardo wrote above, he started the therapy because he suffered from hyper acidity, on various occasions he chocked while in his sleep, he recommends this therapy from his own experience with it, it is not living when you have to depend on pills and injections/shots, is true that they relieve the symptoms but they don’t cure, the therapy is effective, he is living testimony and he welcomes everyone to try it, if you have doubts or you would like to listen to what he has to say he gives his number Cell: 5318-2844
