When does drinking water become harmful?
There are certain rules of drinking water in Ayurveda. We ignore these rules and that is why physical problems increase. When we drink water while standing, we drink quickly, this puts stress on the body. This pressure goes into the stomach the same way a meal goes. Then new problems begin.
Problems of indigestion: If water is drunk while sitting, abdominal muscles remain relaxed. Abdominal muscles get stressed while drinking water while standing. This can cause indigestion.
Increases kidney function:
Drinking water while standing allows water to flow directly to the lower abdomen. In the meanwhile, due to lack of filtering process, there is more stress on the kidneys. It causes kidney related disease.
Oxygen supply is interrupted: Drinking water while standing can also cause shortness of breath. Drinking water in this way interferes with the supply of oxygen to the lungs through food and wind pipes.
