2lts of water is drunk in a span of 5-10 minutes, after a night of fasting that lasts for no less than 8-10 hours, the pressure of water grips the intestines and activates them a lot more than usual.
Due to the sudden water-pressure, the bits and particles of food that adhere to the walls of the intestines, along with gases and other undigested materials, disengage themselves from the intestinal walls, dissolve into the inflowing water and leave the body. In turn, this gives the intestinal cells a new lease of life.The intestines are not the only parts of the body to benefit from this Water Therapy. The cells of the entire being get revitalized.

It is advisable to drink a glass or two of water as first thing in the morning as it helps in cleaning the intestines. Drinking 2 Lt of water in one go may overload the stomach. It may cause the the stomach to expand to an abnormal level and may affect its elasticity. In due course it will result in water and other food to retract into the esophagus and cause a disease known as hiatus hernia. A normal person need 8 -10 glass of water in a day. Just like food water intake should be in a spaced manner. Consuming 2 Lts of waters in one go will probably has the same effect as over eating.
