Many people don’t know that water is one of the major medicine to your and occupies 70% of our body. There are many diseases those can be treated through water without the use of any kind of medicines.

    Correct usage of the water is the basic prevention and treatment for diarrhea. In many areas, diarrhea is the most of the common cause of sickness and death in small children. Contaminated water is the major reason for all diseases. An important part of the prevention of this disease and many other diseases is to make sure that the water we drink is safe and clean. We need to store the water in a cleaned container as well as we have to change the water daily and we should not drink the stored water. It is always suggestible to boil the water before drinking. If this is not possible then store the water in a clean container and cover with some plate on top of that container. Keep this container under the sunlight so that no other bacteria will pass through that container.

    The common cause of deaths in children is due to dehydration or loss of too much water from the body. By giving a child with plenty of water possibly with salt or lemon or sugar will prevent the possible dehydration and also brings the child suffering from dehydration to a better state very quickly.

    Giving the more water is the great treatment than any other medicines for dehydration. Drinking more water also keeps the body in a balanced condition and makes sure the proper functioning of our body parts. Water also reduces the tension makes us more resistant from diseases. So try to drink water as much as possible.
