Curejoy Expert Dr.Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

Most people do not routinely drink hot (warm) water. It is only when we suffer from colds and fever that we forcefully have it. Most of us prefer cold water as it suits the taste buds. But the regular drinking of hot water can help to improve digestive functions, assist in weight loss and detox the body. Ayurveda promotes the use of warm water, for its healing and curative benefits, over cold water.

Safe: Boiled water decreases the number of bacterial organisms found in water, making hot water superior to room temperature or cold water by reducing your exposure to opportunistic infections.

Cleanser: Drink a glass of hot water early in the morning will flush out toxins from the body and cleanse the system. You can mix hot water with honey or lemon for best results.

Constipation Relief: Having a glass of hot water on an empty stomach in the morning improves bowel movements by breaking down food particles and increasing the hydration to cure constipation.

Weight loss: Hot water breaks down fat deposits from the body and helps in weight loss. Have a glass of hot or warm water with either lemon or honey or both, after every meal.

Cures cold and cough: One of the health benefits of drinking hot or warm water is it reduces throat pain, liquefying thick mucous in your sinuses and esophagus, acting as an effective expectorant.

Increases sweating: Drinking hot water increases the body temperature, triggering the body’s response to cool down the temperature through sweating. Sweating helps clean the skin cells by taking out excess water and salt from the cells and body.

Soothes cramps and aches: Drinking a glass of hot water with carom seeds is an effective home remedy to cure menstrual cramps. If you have stomach pain, headache or body pain, have a glass of hot water to get instant relief.

I learned this while living in Korea. Most Americans drink ice water. Which I don't think have many benefits compared to these.

It all makes sense now, a couple of years back I was in France for work and I noticed some of the Indian people drinking hot water and I wondered ever since why but I didn't have the guts to ask them why they did it.

The reason Indian drink hot water is not health benefit! They can't handle cold water when it is cold outside

Does it really matter, I mean our internal body heat is already 98* , that if we drink cold water it really doesn't matter, does it, even if we r running a cold our body temp must be even higher n will ajust

Omg, this is utter rubbish man. I have to agree with Kelvin Lee. It is such nonsense and having a great impact on your credibility. I don't even need to quote other scientific test on cold water, but it is such a pain to read. You do not have anything else to post? Please do research on cold water and therapy. God bless.

Once I liked Sri Sri,but after reading and watching most of his books and videos I came to a conclusion that he is confusing too much,in the initial stage everybody will think that he is the greatest sage ever born,but in the later stage you will come to know that you are not at all progressing in spirituality.
