According to Dr. Raju, we need to drink 5-6 liters of water a day to meet the requirements of the body and to keep the internal organs of our body clean. To understand this, let us try to understand the constitution our body and its functions first. The Constitution and Functioning of our body: Our body is constituted according the creation of Nature. As discussed in our earlier posts, our body possesses all the five elements of nature and it functions according to the equilibrium of nature. In general our body performs two types of functions categorically (i) the day duty and (ii) the night duty. The body has to discharge these two duties categorically every day as long as we live. Our body would be healthy only if it discharges these two duties separately. If these duties are interchanged the body loses health and the life expectancy is reduced. Let us try to understand what these duties are: 1. Day Duty: The body discharges two types of functions during the day. The first one is to digest the food, transport this digested food to the cells, convert it to energy and move the undigested waste to the excretory system. The second duty is to produce millions of new cells in the body in place of millions of those cells, which die every day. If these two functions are to be discharged perfectly it needs ample water. Digestive juices can be produced only when we take appropriate amount of water. Digested food joins the blood and then to the cells, only when a large amount of water is present in the body. If there is proper proportion of water in the body, the food consumed by cells can be converted into energy. If all these functions are to be discharged properly we need to drink enough water in a right way. There is no use if we take water as and when we wish. 2. Night Duty: The body discharges two types of functions during night. The first one is to purge the waste material left inside the body after performing the day duty. Though most of the waste material produced during the day through consumption of food is purged through excretory system in the form of fasces, urine, sweat and carbon dioxide during day duty, the leftover waste is purged during night duty.
