Benefits of Drinking Warm water
Warm water is also known as Ushnodaka in Ayurveda. Ushnodaka cleans the urinary passages through its diuretic action. Hence this action is sometimes termed Basti shodhana. Due to increased action by Kidneys, Meda also gets eliminated to some extent and problems such as urinary stones do not arise. The blockages, infections reduce and get cured. If there are specific problems, one can boil `Rasayan Churna’ with water and drink this medicated `Ushnodaka’ or boiled warm water
In feverish condition, the sweating action is generally blocked. Ushnodaka causes digestion of Ama. All virus, bacteria, parasites grow rapidly in Ama medium. They cause different fevers and inflammations. For controlling fevers, one can add Sudarshan Churna while boiling water.
Patients suffering from mild constipation or loose motions caused by Pitta dosha, should drink a glass of warm water, which causes cleansing bowels without any powder or tablet. Warm water naturalizes the disrupted or disturbed process of expansion contraction of intestines, aiding the elimination. The patient of Muco-collitis have to visit the rest room four-five times a day, eliminating sticky motion. They never feel the relief of total empty bowels. With ushnodaka, the mucous and Kapha get eliminated easily and the ailment gets attacked right at the root. They should drink ushnodaka made from ginger powder. In special cases, some of the powders used in Avipattikara Churna can be used. Thus ushnodaka expands the micro channels carrying Doshas, Dhatus, Wastes, removes their sluggishness, makes them soft. The elasticity of these channels is restored gradually.
