10 Benefits of 7 Day Water Fasting[2018]

Sigma aquaguard is the best aquaguard service center in chennai. Water fast is when a person does not eat and drinks nothing other than water.

There is no set time that water fasting should last for, but medical advice generally suggests anywhere from 24 hours to 3 days as the maximum time to go without food.

Benefits of water fast

Throughout history, people have undertaken fasts for spiritual or religious reasons. But, water fasting is now popular in the natural health and wellness movements, often alongside meditation.

The Zero Calorie Diet:

The fast is intense and grueling due to the emotional challenges involved. Still, it manages to correct minor disruptions in the body as it helps purify the system. When a person takes only water, he or she is consuming ‘zero’ calories. In a body loaded with numerous toxins, both internal and external, the tissues struggle to eliminate the wastes. Our food habits further add excessive calories, thereby slowing down metabolism. Taking virtually no calories for 2 to 7 days was found to revive our tissues and system functions.

Who do fast?

Water fasts are advised for those who can handle several days of intense calorie deprivation. Individuals who have taken a 2-day fast earlier would find it easier to take a 4-day or 7-day fast. Hence, beginners can start with a 2-day water fast. Patients with medical issues require medical consultation before embarking on this plan.

Obese people trying to lose weight can take the fast and observe immediate results. Although, it is necessary to note that the lost pounds might return once the calories come back into your diet. Underweight people might find the fast too grueling, and can experience more fatigue compared to others. Some might face complications during the fast, and they need to stop it immediately.

What Kind of Water on the Fast?

Since water is the only thing we consumed during the fast, it was important to make sure we had high quality water. We have a whole house filter and a 14-stage under the sink filter, so we were fine with drinking our tap water. Some people prefer to use distilled water while fasting.

Electrolyte depletion is one of the bigger risks of fasting so we added some high quality Himalayan salt to a couple of glasses of our water each day. This is supposed to help with the headaches and tiredness.

The amount of water is also important during a fast. Drinking too much water can cause problems, as can not drinking enough. Sources vary on the exact amount but it ranges between 2-4 quarts a day. I just drank when thirsty and added a pinch of salt to a couple glasses a day.

Benefits of 7 Day Water Fasting:

  1. Having no calories burns approximately 1 pound of fat per day, making it the fastest weight loss method.
  2. Increases insulin sensitivity as there is less fluctuation in blood sugar levels.
  3. Improves body repair, recovery and healing from decreased inflammation.
  4. Lowers stress levels, decreases blood pressure and rejuvenates the body.
  5. Increases immunity due to better cell resistance.
  6. Enables reduction in cancer cell proliferation.
  7. Slows down aging and cognitive decline.
  8. Lowers the risk of heart disease.
  9. Solves digestive problems such as gastritis, irritable bowels, constipation, diarrhea, gas, dyspepsia, and loss of appetite.
  10. Water fasting is also an opportunity for emotional and spiritual introspection. People find they have better control over their thoughts and diet, after they are done with this fast.

Water Fasting Side Effects:

  • Without calories or other nutrients from food, you’ll likely feel tired and lethargic on the water fast.
  • You may also feel dizzy and lightheaded and experience headaches, low blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythms, according to the American Cancer Society.
  • The organization also notes that these effects can make driving or operating heavy machinery more dangerous than usual and that fasting can even increase the risk of an attack in people who suffer from gout.
  • In addition, the water fast might make gallstone symptoms worse.
  • If your water fast lasts for days or longer, the risks grow dramatically. You may compromise your immune system and organ function, possibly damaging the kidneys and liver.
  • If you are continuing your metabolism will also slow as your body tries to conserve energy, so you’ll start burning fewer calories than you did in your solid-food days. Once you start eating normally again, the pounds will pile back on quickly and you may even wind up weighing more than you did when you started your fast.

In olden days how was drinking water purified?

In olden days how was drinking water purified? Let us see some olden purification method. We are from best aquaguard water purifier service in chennai.

A safe and convenient water supply plays a vital role in public health and well-being of the society. While there are numerous conventional water treatment technologies available, for a huge population in rural areas of developing countries, these systems would be inappropriate or too expensive. Basically, all such techniques aim to remove visible impurities such as leaves, twigs, or large suspended particles from water collected from unprotected local sources.

These traditional water treatment techniques range from simple filtration using a sieve or cloth to clarification and filtration using naturally available stone filters and plant materials. Coarse media filters, gravel filters, coconut fiber filters, etc., are examples of such developments. There are also household techniques available to remove even some specific water pollutants such as fluorides that can greatly enhance the safety of usage of water for drinking purposes in water scarce regions where there is no other appropriate water source.

Traditional Water treatment methods:

All over the world, rural communities have adopted simple and rudimentary treatment techniques that mainly aim at filtering out the visible impurities from the water collected from local sources.

Some of the traditional treatment methods are,

  • Filtration through winnowing sieve (used widely in Mali).
  • Filtration through cloth (commonly used in villages in India, Mali and the southern part of Niger).
  • Filtration through clay vessels (used in Egypt).
  • Clarification and filtration through plant material (commonly used in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, India).
  • Jempeng stone filter method (used in Bali, Indonesia).

Filtration through Winnowing Sieve:

This type of filtration is used when the water source is polluted by wind-borne impurities such as dry leaves, stalks, and coarse particles. The raw water is passed through a winnowing sieve, and the impurities are filtered. This type of filter is widely used in villages of the Bamaka area, Mali. This method cannot be used when the raw water is highly turbid or muddy, since the sieve cannot filter fine suspended particles in raw water.

Filtration through Cloth:

Thin white cotton cloth is used as the filter medium. This filter can filter raw water containing such impurities as plant debris, insects, dust particles or coarse mud particles. Filtration of suspended particles present in water can be achieved only to a very small extent. Therefore, this type of filtration is not suitable for highly turbid water. It is most suitable for filtration of well water.

Filtration through Clay Vessels:

Clay vessels with a suitable pore size are sometimes used to filter highly turbid water. Turbid water is collected in a big clay jar and allowed to settle down. Then the water in the jar will trickle through the porous clay wall of the jar. This method of water treatment is common in Egypt.

 Filtration through Plant Parts:

 Highly turbid water with fine suspended and colloidal particles are first coalesced and settled out using the nuts of a locally available plant, in some of the southern districts of Tamil Nadu, India, which is then filtered using cloth filters. Studies have found that the nuts excrete coagulant chemicals upon soaking which does the trick. Similarly, wiry roots of the rhizomes from the ‘ramachham’ are placed in a clay jar, which has tiny holes in its bottom. Raw water is poured into this jar, and then the water is allowed to filter thorough this layer of roots. The water then trickles through the tiny holes at the bottom of the jar. The filtered water is collected at the bottom of the jar. Usually this filtered water is very clear and has a pleasant smell. This type of water filtration is common in southern districts of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, India.

Jempeng Stone Filter Method:

This type of water filtration method is developed in Saringan batu Jempeng, Bali, Indonesia. Here, a small artificial pond or a by-pass channel is cut by the side to an irrigation canal, which carries muddy water.  Jempeng stone filter units are placed in the artificial ponds. The filter unit is carved out of a porous material called ‘cadas’. This unit is placed on the top of a stone-supporting gravel bed. Muddy water filters through the porous wall of the filter unit and gets collected inside.. It can treat even highly turbid water. The main feature of this unit is that the only cost involved is the investment cost. Practically there is no operational or maintenance cost such as for cleaning.

Is Groundwater pure?

Ground water have good minerals. And also there are some impurities are there. We are the best aquaguard service center in chennai. We offer general service for your water purifier.

When rain falls to the ground, some of it flows along the land surface to streams, rivers or lakes, some moisturizes the ground. Part of this water is used by vegetation; some evaporates and returns to the atmosphere. Part of the water also seeps into the ground, flows through the unsaturated zone and reaches the water table, which is an imaginary surface from where the ground beneath is saturated.

Why is groundwater so important?

Groundwater counts in average for one third of the fresh water consumed by humans, but at some parts of the world, this percentage can reach up to 100%. It is a very important natural resource and has a significant role in the economy and the main source of water for irrigation and the food industry. In general groundwater is a reliable source of water for the agriculture and can be used in a flexible manner:

For the environment groundwater plays a very important role in keeping the water level and flow into rivers, lakes and wetlands. Specially during the drier months when there is little direct recharge from rainfall, it provides the environment with groundwater flow through the bottom of these water bodies and becomes essential for the wild life and plants living in these environment. Groundwater also plays a very relevant role in sustain navigation through inland waters in the drier seasons. By discharging groundwater into the rivers it helps keeping the water levels higher.

 

Ground water serves many purposes

Fresh groundwater was used for many important purposes, with the largest amount going toward irrigating crops, such as the delicious eggplants, squash, and rutabagas that children love to have for dinner. Local city and county water departments withdraw a lot of groundwater for public uses, such as for delivery to homes, businesses, and industries, as well as for community uses such as fire fighting, water services at public buildings, and for keeping local residents happy by keeping community swimming pools full of water. Industries and mining facilities also used a lot of groundwater. In 2010, 19 percent of freshwater usage by industries came from groundwater, and 50 percent of freshwater usage at mines was groundwater. The majority of water used for self-supplied domestic and livestock purposes came from groundwater sources.

Is ground water pure?

This question seems to have attracted a lot of poor-quality answers from people ignorant about what constitutes good drinking water quality.

Ground water contains mainly minerals. So it is good. It is filtered by the great nature in the different layers of soil. So it safer and healthier than fresh water found on surface of the earth in lakes ,ponds ,Rivers ,etc as it is always in contact to the air and so contains many bacteria also as well harmful gases and substance like so2, so3,compounds of nitrogen, co etc. beside the taste of ground water is sweet which enhance your mood , makes you happy and allows your will to drink more water and hence is fills the deficiency of water in the body which prevents many disease like ulcers ,digestive problems ,enhance brain efficiency , etc.

But today due to pollution, the ground water is getting contaminated. Many harmful pollutants get mixed with it today.

Earlier people used to drink ground water throughout their lives as there were no purifying machines available or out of budget. They were stronger than we are especially in physical strength and disease fighting strength or will power.

Many of purifying machines purify water too much making it bitter to taste and unhealthy. It removes the entire mineral from it also the good ones.

Ground water purification

With population of over a billion, India is a major user of groundwater. Currently, the annual extraction of ground water in India is estimated to be about 210bcm (billion cubic meters), the highest in the world. India is also the world’s the biggest user of groundwater for irrigation. There is significant use of groundwater in almost all parts of the country except in Orissa, Assam, Bihar, Chattisgarh, Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir. Another more worrying dimension that has emerged in the past two decade is a direct link between industrial, agricultural and household activities, and contamination of groundwater.

Contamination of the water table is caused mainly through dissolution of two broad classes of chemicals

  • Inorganic minerals, salts, and metals
  • Synthetic organic compounds

Most inorganic compounds are harmless at the concentrations commonly found in unpolluted groundwater, and some, such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium, are even beneficial to human health. Others, such as arsenic, barium, or mercury, can occur naturally in concentrations that are considered harmful. Human activities are another source of inorganic substances in groundwater. Bacteria, viruses, or parasites can seep into the groundwater from sources such as septic systems, leaky sewer lines, barnyards, or fields spread with manure

Organic compounds are chemicals containing carbon and other elements such as hydrogen, nitrogen, or chlorine. Many occur in nature, and many others are manufactured for a wide range of purposes, including cleaning fluids, wood preservatives, and pesticides. The production of synthetic organic compounds has increased more than 10-fold in the past 40 years, and some of these chemicals have become significant groundwater contaminants.

 

Studies estimate that nearly 59% of all districts in India have problems related to either the quantitative availability or quality of groundwater. Out of the 593 districts in India from which data is available, several have problems due to high fluoride content (203 districts), iron content (206 districts), salinity (137 districts), nitrate content (109 districts) and arsenic content (35 districts) in their ground water sources. Biological contamination causing intestinal disorders are present throughout the country.

There are two distinct separation technologies – ion exchange resins and Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane elements – which can be either used separately or together to bring ground water to safe levels.

Synthetic ion exchange resins are polymers that are capable of exchanging particular ions within the polymer with ions in a solution that is passed through them. They are used either to soften the water or to remove the mineral content altogether, but also for various other applications including separating out some elements. Water purification using this method is environmentally friendly because it deals with substances already occurring in water. The long life of resins and low maintenance of the purification equipment makes this a very attractive method.

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a membrane-technology filtration method that removes many types of large molecules and ions from solutions by applying pressure to the solution when it is on one side of a selective membrane. The result is that the solute is retained on the pressurized side of the membrane and the pure solvent passes to the other side.

The situation with groundwater being the way it is, using water straight from the source is no longer an option. What really is a matter of choice is the type of purification system one would use.

Now we are pushed to use water purifier. Because the water is contaminated with pollution. So we must use the purifier.   Aquaguard tollfree number chennai is 9940492121.
