Regular intake of pure water will relieve you from thirst, stress, digestion, all metabolic activities, constipation etc. If such is the case do you consider water as medicine.

I think anything can be considered a medicine provided it is being used to heal or prevent injury or disease. Drinking clean water and eating proper food would have to be very high on the preventative medicine list. I've always believed that if you're thirsty one of the best beverages to grab is plain clean water. Too often people grab a can of soft drink or something else.

I'm aware of all the health benefits water has but I never once considered it as medicine. The primary function of water anyway is to relieve thirst. I think the other effects it has are just "side effects".

yes i do consider water as a medicine. In fact, there is an actual therapy called "Water therapy"!! Water therapy is a natural treatment for controlling diseases and keeping the body hydrated. It is useful for curing diseases without use of medicine. you just have to drink 1.5 litres of water daily and follow simple instructions.
