This is a #healthy topic and you may extend your stay on earth just by indulging in something so cheap, I’ve been on this therapy for yours now and all I treat in requisites of my health is Malaria/typhoid so I choose to take it normal not chilled, taste it and reap the benefit later. There’s this Igbo saying that “he who brings kola brings life” for me, water is life because you can afford it alone. Clean water is required for the early morning treatment but in Nigerian setting these days, I hardly see water served in cups & glasses. It’s simply because of the availability of sachet water & plastic/bottle water, people fancy to just open bottle water and drink directly instead of pouring it into a glass, the sachet water is easily consumed because it’s cheaper and anybody can tear the sachet and drink.
Medically, one don’t need to measure the amount of water to be consume at a time, for the reason that during the dry season, people become extremely thirsty due to the harsh weather condition, that would depend on how thirsty you are, if need be then I will limit it to the normal 60cl sachet water or 75cl small size bottle water for a start even before you brush your mouth. By this culture, you will stay healthy and gallant but you still need to go for medical checkup occasionally. Make sure the water is clean and save for consumption.
