A current trend in Japan today is drinking water immediately after getting out of bed. Scientific tests have confirmed the medical value of this practice. This water treatment has been confirmed by Japanese medical authorities to completely cure certain diseases, whether they are more serious or simply mild afflictions. A list of these diseases follows.
Headaches, Body aches, Arthritis, Heart problems, Epilepsy, Obesity, Tuberculosis, Meningitis, Kidney diseases, Vomiting, Gastritis, Diabetes, Constipation, Uterine diseases, Ear and throat diseases
The Method
1) When you wake up, before doing anything, drink four 6 ounce glasses of water, or 160 milliliters. (If for any reason you cannot drink this much water at one time, you may start with as much water as you can drink, then gradually increase the amount.)

2) Brush your teeth and perform basic oral hygiene, then wait 45 minutes before eating or drinking anything.

3) After the 45 minute waiting period you may eat and drink normally.
4) Once a meal is completed, do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours.
Specific Diseases
Using the above method, the research indicates the number of days the regimen must be followed to cure each disease.
  • High blood pressure – 30 days
  • Gastric problems – 10 days
  • Diabetes – 30 days
  • Constipation – 10 days
  • Cancer – 180 days
  • Tuberculosis – 90 days
  • Arthritis – use the method for only 3 days the first week, then return to the regular daily regimenUsing this treatment method has no side effects other than increased urination at the beginning of the program. Drinking water and staying healthy and active are ways that will better out lives. Including this water drinking regimen will also help you to stay healthy.
    Both the Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals instead of cold water. Cold water slows down the digestive process and solidifies the oily foods you have just eaten. Once these solidified oils react with the stomach acid, it is absorbed more quickly by the intestine and lines the intestinal wall. The long term accumulation of these digested oils can lead to cancer. Perhaps Western cultures should adopt this practice, as there is everything to gain and nothing to lose.
    About Heart Attacks
    Women should be aware that pain in the left arm is not the only a sign of a heart attack
    A heart attack may occur even without a chest pain
    Other symptoms of a heart attack are nausea and intense sweating
    About 60 percent of people who have a heart attack while sleeping do not wake up
    Be aware of any pain that is in the jaw. You may be awaken from a sound sleep by this type of pain. It could be a sign of a heart attack.
    Let us be careful and notice the possible symptoms of a heart attack. One cardiologist says that if we are willing to send this to everyone we know, and they do the same, at least one life will be saved.

Less Sleep in Teen Years Tied to More Pounds at 21

THURSDAY, Aug. 28, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Lack of sleep not only puts teens at risk for poor grades, it also puts them at increased risk for obesity, researchers warn.
The study authors analyzed data collected from more than 10,000 Americans when they were aged 16 and 21. Nearly one-fifth of them got less than six hours of sleep a night when they were age 16, and this group was 20 percent more likely to be obese at age 21 than those who got more than eight hours of sleep per night at age 16, the investigators found.
Although lack of exercise and too much time spent watching television were also risk factors for obesity, these behaviors did not account for the link between lack of sleep and obesity, according to the study published online recently in the Journal of Pediatrics.
"Lack of sleep in your teenage years can stack the deck against you for obesity later in life. Once you're an obese adult, it is much harder to lose weight and keep it off. And the longer you are obese, the greater your risk for health problems like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer," study author Shakira Suglia, an assistant professor of epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City, said in a university news release.
"The message for parents is to make sure their teenagers get more than eight hours a night. A good night's sleep does more than help them stay alert in school. It helps them grow into healthy adults," Suglia added.
Teens should get nine to 10 hours of sleep a night, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
It's known that daytime sleepiness and fatigue affect what and how people eat by triggering cravings and altering appetite. For example, sleep-deprived people find it easier to buy calorie-laden fast food rather than preparing a healthy meal.

Rate of drug OD deaths in city has jumped by 41% in four years, Health Dept. reveals

A Overdose Prevention Rescue Kit 
The rate of drug overdose deaths in the city has soared by 41% since 2010, data released Thursday by the city Health Department revealed.
Driven by a rise in heroin and prescription drug abuse, the drug overdose death rate jumped from 8.2 for every 100,000 New Yorkers in 2010 to 11.6 in 2013.
In all, 782 New Yorkers died from accidental overdoses in 2013, up from 541 in 2010, the Health Department said.
The vast majority of the deaths - 77% - involved an opioid such as heroin or prescription pain killers.
The death rate from heroin doubled over the same period, from 3.1 to 6.2 for every 100,000 New Yorkers. Some 420 people overdosed on heroin in 2013, more than double the 209 deaths in 2010

The Bronx had the highest heroin death rate at 8.8, followed closely by Staten Island at 8.6. Queens saw the sharpest increase, from 1.9 to 4.3.
Residents of poor neighborhoods were still mostly likely to OD on heroin, but rich neighborhoods saw the biggest spike - a 195% jump over three years.

Meanwhile, prescription drug deaths were on the rise in Brooklyn and Queens, and residents of the wealthiest neighborhoods were most likely to die from the drugs.Staten Island, which has experienced an epidemic of prescription drug abuse, had the highest rate of deaths from those drugs in 2013, but after an aggressive effort to target the drugs there the death rate dropped by 32% since 2011.
“After seeing a troubling increase in opioid overdose deaths in Staten Island, the Department took an aggressive approach to save lives. Over the last two years, the Health Department educated both health care providers and residents on the risks of these highly addictive drugs, and worked with community groups, syringe access programs, and first responders to increase overdose reversals with naloxone,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett.
“Though we have seen progress in Staten Island, there is still much more work to be done.”
She said the department plans to next bring a similar program to the Bronx.
