Do you drink tea or coffee as soon as you wake up? Are you aware drinking a caffeinated drink empty stomach is not healthy for you? Here is what you should instead of caffeinated drinks.
Many people have a habit of starting their day with tea or coffee. It might give them a sense of satisfaction, but it is not suitable for your health. Instead, drinking water first in the morning is a healthy habit to avoid many ailments.
According to Ayurveda, drinking water early in the morning is known as Ushapaan. It acts as a natural detoxifier, provides hydration, refreshes the body, boosts digestion, and helps clear bowels regularly.
Drinking tea or coffee empty stomach increases the acid in your stomach and leads to heartburn. It also dehydrates the body as it works as a diuretic and hampers the digestive system. As a result, it increases toxins inside the body.
On the other hand, drinking boiled warm water in the morning helps to increase digestive strength. Boiled water gains a quality of penetrating deep into the channels of the body. This quality is known as “Sukshma” in Ayurveda. Due to this, it stimulates digestion power and improves overall health.
After drinking warm water in the morning, you can drink water boiled with some herbs and spices to make it more suitable for you according to your body type.
Drinking water according to your body type, especially when your dominant dosha is out of balance, helps eliminate imbalanced symptoms.
