Do Not Drink Water while Standing


It has been 5 years ,I get to hear from some health conscious people ,who say don’t drink water while standing. When I first heard it I just laughed at them. But then it aroused a curiosity in me to find out if there is a little truth behind these cautions.


When I searched it over internet I was surprised to see what mere standing and drinking water could do to you. The three major ill effects that I came across were

Stomach damage : when we stand and drink water, it flows easily and in great volume down the food canal and splashes onto the lower stomach wall. This splash damages the stomach wall and the nearby organs. Long term practice disturbs the digestive system and further causes heart  and kidney problems.

Kidney damage : water intake while standing lets the water pass through kidneys with a push without much filtration. This may cause impurities to gather in the bladder  or in blood. Now kidneys ,bladder and heart are at stake.

Arthritis : if water is taken while standing it disturbs the balance of other body fluids. Ultimately it also affects the joint regions and cause deficiency of required fluids in joints. This results in joint pains known as arthritis.

So make a habit, sit and then drink the water.

    3. There is no specific verse in Quran that says so. This came from the Prophet traditions (Hadeeth)
      So to be accurate no one should say God says...what ever God says is written in Quran. Otherwise it comes from the traditions of the prophet peace upon him.
      There is a serious penalty on saying God says and He did not. In order not to fall in that pit we need to reference any God said with the verse that supports that from Quran

  4. Mashaallah! Our Prophet (PBUH) had taught this 1400 years ago while science took these many years. This proves Islam is the true Religion.

    1. Evidence for Christians: The Bible says that God "dwells above the circle of the earth" (Isaiah 40:22 NWT). Also, that 'He hangs the earth on what' (Job 26:7 NWT) At that time people thought that the Earth was flat, which stands on four elephants! And that if they go too far to fall over the edge! Thousands of years ago, the Bible writers knew what science now confirms? They could not know that they were inspired by God (Psalm 83:18 NWT 'To make it known that you're only you, whose name is Jehovah, Most High over all the earth') jw.org

  5. Good knowledge

    All religions are great!!! If only folks followed all the teachings of the great saints, world would have been a place to live in. Unfortunately people create own interpretations and follow only things that suite them

  7. Of course you are right, and Ayurveda - (meaning- Life Knowledge or Science) is very little significant part of Hinduism or Santhan Dharma recommended sitting posture is best to drink water and to consume food. Vedas (Hindu Scriptures had immense knowledge) but that knowledge was confined and kept confidential for most part. Many Europeans (including Germans) called themselves to be Aryans. Some Envious European scholars also created Aryan migration theory (meaning Europeans migrated to Indian sub continent ) which never took place.

  8. The teach of islam is unique in that sense, from your personal hygiene and habit to how to run a country, it is a way of life not only a religion in a narrow sense.

    May God Bless you all.

  10. I sincerely believed the hadith but the medical information is not entirely correct.
    I'm sorry but as a medical student I know that sphincter do not filter, all it does is open and closed and kidney do filter. And there are almost 50 sphincter in our body. Which one did you mean? The Pyloric sphincter? Other than that, water do not directly go to the kidney from stomach. It will be absorb in the blood and then to the kidney to be filtered. So the pressure produce stomach due to fast moving water on the stomach wall do not affect the pressure in kidney. I do understand how it affect the GIT but I cannot understand how it affect the kidney. Anyone can help?

  13. The best thing is sitting down.
    Sehaus anything, try to drink water while sitting, not standing. Why? Because the drink while sitting, then a lot of positive energy that will be obtained mainly for health. Therefore, though very thirsty, drink by sitting, not standing.

    Drinking while standing results in impaired kidney and urinary tract. If we're thirsty, then the best way to ease it is to drink water as soon as possible. However, do you know, how the best way to drink it?

    Islam is indeed a religion that is perfect only the religion of Islam that governs all aspects of our lives begin to wake up until we go back to sleep have all been in Ataur by Islam, it is no doubt for this religion. But not infrequently also among us understand that Islam has set all aspects of our lives that we look for solutions outside the Islamic Shari'ah Islamic syaria't even to violate this.

    Drink

    The following are explanations of medical and acupuncture, why it is recommended to drink sitting.

    The human body has a network filter (filters).
    Some call it the name filter filter sfringer, ie a structure maskuler (muscular) which can be opened (so that urine can pass) and close.
    Any water we drink will be supplied to the posts that are in the kidney filtration.

    This filter will filter open when we sat down, and closed when standing.
    Therefore, if you drink standing up, then the water will go straight up into the bladder without screening process.
    When directly to the bladder, then the precipitation occurs ureter.Bila disaluran this happens, then this will lead to disorders of the kidneys.

    In contrast, the sitting, the filter will filter open and will be processed in the body before they were distributed to a variety of other organs, and then processed again to get into the bladder. Thus, the perceived thirst will soon disappear after drinking water while sitting

    1. Drinking water while in a vertical position is generally better, because gravity helps the flow of water down. Drinking water while laying down, or upside-down, can cause choking (I'm honestly not really sure if I could even drink water while in an upside-down position).

  19. Jai mahadev......
    Not prophet... Our vedas and yogas taught this thousands of years ago... Maharshi patanjali was first to tell this..

  20. And if u are talking u that prophet told us that earth is round not flat... Its also written in rigveda..
    Not only that.. There's also written that sun is a center and earth with 8 planets is revolving around it.... Not only this , speed of light and how much time it takes light to reach earth from is sun is written in rigveda...
    .
    Distance of sun and earth is written in hanuman chalisa....
    Vedas are not like quran... They are far far better and unbound from time... Unlike many principles of quran which are correct before thousand years but are failed to apply today in life...
    Sanatana is only true religion... All other are fake

  21. We may all believe and worship whatever it is that we want to worship, or whatever that pleases us. But deep down inside, we know the right thing. And we can differentiate between the right and the wrong.
    Allah says in the Qur'an:
    1. Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)to these Mushrikoon and Kafiroon): "O Al-Kafiroon (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, in His Angels, in His Books, in His Messengers, in the Day of Resurrection, and in Al-Qadar, etc.)!
    2. "I worship not that which you worship,
    3. "Nor will you worship that which I worship.
    4. "And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping.
    5. "Nor will you worship that which I worship.
    6. "To you be your religion, and to me my religion

  24. While I agree with my scientific and rationale loving friends that drinking water in standing position wouldn't appear any more bad than drinking in sitting position.

    My point is, if Quran, Aturveda, Accupentur, old Christian literature recommend drinking water in sitting position, then what the heck, I will sit down and drink - how will that inconvenience me?

  27. Our upper body (above waist) remains in same position whether we are standing or sitting, so how drinking water while sitting is better than while standing as lower stomach wall and kidneys are all above the waist, and also, force due to gravity is same in both ways?

  30. So sad to see the comments above, someone shared a good useful information and you all bring religion in between, if prophet or santan dharma told about it earlier then its good, it seems in above comments that debate is going which religion is best.. , pls grow up

  31. I can't believe how people have taken a scientific piece of information and turned it into a religious debate. Grow up people! Religions never compete. They have all accumulated knowledge across the years, which is why they have many information in common. This should bring us all together and not separate us because of who said what first! My 9 year old daughter is more mature! As for the sitting down, maybe there is a scientific truth in it, so as long as it doesn't bother me to sit while drinking, I will be doing that. Have a lovely positive supportive peaceful day everybody!

  33. I saw one of the disadvantage while standing above, the auther saying water in intake while standing make water flow in to kidnies with push, oh yar kidnies not connected to stomach directly to flow with push. And another thing is water filteration done by kidnies no other organ will do this, and kidnies won't filter the water directly. Our digestive system walls obsorbs the water and wil. Mix it in blood after that it goes to kidnies to filter unwanted mtrl. Don't tell anything blindly with out knowing facts. And don't do unwanted discussion,on religions.

    Thanks

  35. Bull shit..kidney flush out water in haste if drunk in standing position??? Atrocious. As if water immediately reaches kidney. Water that we drink reaches the stomach in sane force whether we stand or sit. The esophageal valve known as spitcher has no effect whether we sit or stand while drinking water. And it's this valve that control the flow of anything into stomach. And water flows into small intestine almost 8 mtrs long along with the food before moving into large intestine which then gets absorbed into blood stream and reach the kidney. It's not the water that enters the kidney but the blood. Such a baseless post. And it's atrocious to see people quarreling over religion supporting this fake post possibly created by some religious followers that got blind by religion. Till date there has been no study done to evaluate the effect of drinking water while sitting or standing.
