Don’t go overboard, Dr. Rekha clarified that you don’t have to drink liters of water, because he thinks it is good for health. She explained that even water needs to be digested, according to Ayurveda.
The amount of water each person needs is subjective and so you should watch for signs such as not sweating well, constipation, cottony mouth or dry mouth, dark yellow urine and more. If you feel like you are experiencing any of these symptoms, drink more water if your body needs it.
Supplement meals with water. It is recommended to drink water 30 minutes before or after a meal. She said, “It is ideal for a Vata person who is malnourished to drink water 30 minutes after eating and 30 minutes before eating for an overweight Kapha person.”
Drinking water can be boring for some people, especially during the summers when you crave caffeinated drinks. Add flavor to the water by adding a handful of vetiver roots in the summer. In other seasons, add jeera or cumin seeds.
