We all know the significance of bathing. Bathing is not merely a task but it significantly contributes to good health. Also, it depends on what time and with what you’re bathing. Bathing enriches one with these qualities if practiced properly.
Importance of Regular Bathing:
- Kindles the digestive fire which helps in digestion and burns the toxins
- Imparts luster and glow to the skin
- Removes the tiredness and energizes
- Eliminates negative thoughts and gives peace of mind
- Purifies the soul and cleanses the body
The ideal time to bathe is in the morning hours. People who bathe in the afternoon hours attract diseases. Bathing in the evening hours is traditionally accepted.
Can we bathe after eating?
It is very essential to bathe on empty stomach. Avoid consuming anything for at least an hour before going to bathe. It affects health and slowly collapses the digestion.
As a general rule, always use lukewarm or water at normal temperature over the head and warm water or cold water for the rest of the body.
Using warm water for the head, affects the eyes and hair. So, people with weak eyesight or with acute hair fall must take a notice of this.
Ayurveda advocates the use of UBTON for bathing. An ubton is a natural scrub and an ideal replacement to caustic soaps. It can be prepared using powders of triphala, amahaldi, haldi, belgiri, multani, neem patra etc.
Bathing is not permitted in all conditions. A few health conditions require no bathing. In case of fever, diarrhea, ear and nose disorders (avoid head bath), indigestion and bloating of abdomen, bathing should be avoided.
