Drinking water in one goes is harmful. In our stomach, gastric juices are produced for digestion. They have a pH level of 1.5 – 3.5 On the other hand; our saliva has a pH of about 6.5 – 7.5. So it’s basic. Gastric juices are acidic while the saliva is basic.
When we drink water sip by sip. By “sip by sip”, I mean that the water should touch the tongue and other parts of the mouth do not gulp it. This way, saliva along with water also goes down to the stomach. This helps in the neutralization of the stomach.
It is an ideal condition. Gulping water can cause Hernia, Appendicitis and in the long run Prostate cancer.
