In a hot water source, water coming out of the ground is naturally heated by what we call a 'boiler geothermal "; This means that the heat of the water comes from the Earth. This is particularly the case in the volcanic regions (where water is in direct contact with the rock at very high temperatures, the magma), but not only. Indeed, more a source of water is deep, it will be in contact with the hot rock in the Earth's crust, and more its temperature will be high. In General, it refers to by the term "hot spring" a hot spring whose temperature exceeds the 36.7 ° C.

In France, hot springs are many, whether it's sources are savage (in nature, where the swims are not framed), or from thermal sources.

Drinking hot water may seem crazy but it would be very beneficial for the body according to Ayurvedic medicine. Drinking hot water has multiple benefits, provided you stick to this diet over the long term, or even adopt it permanently on a daily basis.

  1. Elimination of toxins: the heat of the water activates the metabolism and promotes the evacuation of acids and toxins. It dissolves the impurities and then eliminates them.
  2. Cleaning of the gastrointestinal system: the stomach purifies itself thanks to hot water and prepares to assimilate food. Digestion is facilitated.

  • Morning on an empty stomach
  • About 30 minutes before or after meals
  • Before going to bed
