In early August of 2004 an interesting method for treating several different diseases found its way to message boards all over the Internet. This method claimed that drinking four glasses of water immediately after waking up would help cure several different disease and the person suffering from the disease would see results fast.
When looking at all of the claims as to what this form of treatment can cure, it is easy to see that there is a lot of pseudoscience occurring. This treatment claims that it can cure the following diseases, headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis, asthma, TB, Meningitis, Kidney and Urine disease, vomiting gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases. Now can drinking four glasses of water right away in the morning actually cure these diseases? This claim if most definitely exaggerated. Some of the diseases listed above can hardly be cured with today's latest medical advancements so it is highly unlikely that it can be cured by four glasses of water. It is also important to note that maybe people suffering from these diseases who tried this water treatment could have started using other treatments at the same time. In order to actually prove this treatment would actually work the creators needed to rule out rival hypotheses. Also, one must notice that there isn't any scientific evidence to support this treatment. In the original post, there were claims that "scientific tests have proven its value" and "water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a hundred percent cure for various disease" when researchers went to look for these scientific tests and claims by a Japanese medical society none could be found.
By drinking water more frequently at certain times of day it is said by the National Digestive Disease Information Clearinghouse that it can help constipation but that's it. So can this water treatment actually work? Based on pseudoscience this blogger would have to disagree.
