Acidity is caused when there is too much fluid in the body and no acid and minerals.
Drinking too much water or drinking most of water on empty stomach or after more than 20 minutes after meals cause acidity.
Every pain in body is caused due to excess fluids in body and lack of minerals in the body fluids.
Drinking water with meals can improves health in following ways.
This question had troubled me for more than 15 years. I changed various formats of drinking water.
The best way to drink water and other liquids is with meals. The explanation of drinking water with meals is as under:
When we eat food our stomach produces acids and other enzymes to convert the food and other liquids into a paste. This paste is passed on to small intestines. Small intestine is connected to blood veins. The minerals, carbohydrates, Fats, proteins, water, enzymes and other nutrients are absorbed in small intestines and moved to liver for further processing. After processing in liver the mineralized blood is sent to kidney for balancing of the minerals. Any minerals found to be out of correct proportions are filtered out or stored in safe places for use in future.
First benefit of this will be that blood volume will increase as more fluids will be absorbed with minerals. There may not be any fluid absorption in the absence of acids in small intestine when water is taken on empty stomach. That should help cure varicose veins problem. It should also help improve the skin. It should remove the dark eye spots and improve eye sight. It can improve cataract as well. It can prevent prostate cancer as well. There are 1000s of possibilities.
When we drink water or any other liquid after more than 20 minutes after a meal, the water and other liquids are not absorbed in small intestines (in the absence of stomach acids. Stomach acids are produced only in response to food and not in response to water and other liquids). The liquids and water are passed on to large intestines. In large intestines also the excess water and vitamins are absorbed. However the large intestine does not absorb any minerals, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. This water is passed on to intra-cellular fluids. No processing is done by liver and kidneys. This is kind of direct reach to the body fluids which are passed on to cells. Over a period of time, the intra-cellular fluids around the large intestines become devoid of most of the minerals. These fluids are also striped off the essential glucose. In the absence of glucose the metabolic rate falls which causes increase in blood sugar to compensate for the lack of glucose in intra-cellular fluids.
Not drinking any fluids except with meals will dehydrate the large intestine and surrounding areas of excess fluids. This will result in increase in metabolic rate.
It will also help reduce intracellular water. Average total intra-cellular fluid makes up about 30 to 50 liters of fluid. That means a loss of 5 liters of intra-cellular fluid can be brought in about 30 days. That is the fastest and safest weight loss that is possible.
The excess water reaching in large intestine is the cause for prostate problems.

My blog in brief –
Chronic mineral imbalance in blood leads to low metabolic rate resulting in aging and age related diseases like blood sugar, blood pressure and heart disease etc.
To correct mineral imbalance do hydration dehydration cycles and to increase resting metabolic rate do walking and rest routines as detailed on my blog.

To increase Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) do the following
Walk for 5 minutes at easy pace within your home in the morning.
After walking rest for 510 minutes in bed.
Repeat the above 3 times in the morning, afternoon, evening and at night before sleeping. So that makes for 12 walk and rest routines or 5×12 = 60 minutes of walk for the entire period. One can do it selectively during week days and on working days only in the morning and at night.
The idea about walking is that it mobilises energy and before the entire mobilised energy is spent we rest. In such a case a part of the mobilised energy becomes available for vital organs. Doing walking and rest routines takes care of aging related diseases as well.
Hydration dehydration cycles
Once in 15 days – Drink 200 ml water every hour from 7 am to 6 pm.
The very next day – do not drink any fluid for the entire day.
