Then, brush your teeth, but don’t eat or drink anything for the next 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, you can eat and drink as normal. Also, after breakfast, lunch, and dinner, don’t eat or drink anything for two hours. If you’re a senior or unwell and unable to drink four glasses of water on an empty stomach, you can start with drinking as much water as you can and gradually increase the amount until you reach the required 640ml.

This treatment will help you with various different illnesses, and even if you’re healthy, it will give you a jolt of energy throughout the whole day. How long is required for this treatment?

In conclusion, the next time you wake up and reach for that cup of coffee, think again. Grab a glass of water instead, and watch as your health improves in ways you never thought possible. So, cheers to good health, and bottoms up!
