Exclamation Stomach Upset- Clever analysis by family doctor- drink water first thing in the day

Okay before you all derail this thread and do total gandmasti here, please read this carefully and then add your views. This is a serious health related question.

I used to have stomach upsets during my college days. I had imporper bowel movement and at random times of teh day. I guess all this die to the vada pav cooked in cheap oil in our canteen, smoking and ocassional paan. I visited a doctor near our college and he asked me to have my blood and urine and stools tested. Then he gave me some medicines and all was well for a few days.

Later I had the same problem and I decided to visit my family doctor who had treated me since I was a very small kid.

I asked him if he wanted any blood, urine, stool tests done. I also showed him the medicines I was prescribed before.

My family doctor said no I dont need stool tests. He asked me to have my bowel movements in a commode toilet if possible and look if my stools floated or sank before I flushed them.

The next day I reported that they sank. Well he said that this was an indicator that my digestive system was not working at optimum levels. To my surprise my doctor, being an allopathy practitioner, prescibed an Ayurvedic medicine "Mahashankwati" tablets.

He asked me to drink as much water as I could in the morning before tea. Also to drink as much as I could before going to bed. Also to eat atleast 2 hours before sleeping or if this time interval was not possible then eat just a fruit before going to bed.

Since then, touch wood, I have not had any problems like acidity or stomach upsets. Now I dont need the medicine too.

I know many of you are waiting to add your 'expert comments' but I just thought of sharing this health tip with you folks.

Okay first answer seriously and then.. I know I cant stop you folks...

I always drink a glass of water first thing in the morning and as the last thing before going to bed (Yes even after all the beers I would have consumed). I also make it a point to drink atleast 8 glasses of water during the day. Up side is I have absolutely no problems with digestion. But down side is for the first few weeks you do this.. you will have to spend most of your productive time in the toilet (peeing) so if possible have your network connection shifted to the nearest toilet stall and have your computer installed there for the first few weeks.

It is absolute fact that many people do not drink enuf water during the day which increases the acidity in the stomach leading to all kinds of problems including but not limited to sinkers, floaters and just plain gas.

Intresting info.

I know Drinking lot of water is good but when to drink is new. thanks.

Another tip. My gran pa used to do

Store water(about 2 to 3 glass) over nite in a copper container, add few tulasi leaves.
After morning ablutions drink the water.


Spoonfull of honey and lime juice mix is also good.

Critical is to have a gap (preferably two hours) between dinner and bed time. This becomes even MORE important as one ages as most of us desis just eat and go to sleep! I too used to do that and have now started eating earlier!
