Don’t go overboard, Dr Rekha clarified that you don’t need to drink gallons of water, thinking it’s good for health. She explained that even water needs to be digested, as per Ayurveda.
The quantity of water each person needs is subjective and therefore, you must keep an eye out for signs such as not sweating well, constipation, cotton mouth or dry mouth, dark yellow urine, and more. If you feel like you are experiencing any of these symptoms, drink more water as your body needs it.
Supplement meals with water. It is advised to drink water 30 minutes before or after a meal. She said, “It is ideal for a Vata person who is undernourished to drink water 30 minutes after food and 30 minutes before food for an overweight Kapha person.”
Drinking water may feel boring for a few people, especially during summers when you crave caffeinated drinks. Adds flavour to the water by putting in a handful of vetiver roots during the summer. In other seasons, adds jeera or cumin seeds.
