I often prefer to have a light walk after taking my meal, especially dinner. Recently I got to know that this is not a good idea. Walking after taking meal will burn the nutrition as well that you consume.
What to do and what not to do was the question because this is like a daily routine activity and to keep my body fit, I need to have a proper knowledge of the same.
Vajrasana (a sitting posture in YOGA) relaxes and harmonizes persona. This practice also promotes digestive function therefore it is suggested to sit in Vajrasana for about 5-10 moments after a food.
Practice: Come up onto the feet (knee stand). The feet are together. The big feet touch each other, the pumps point a little bit in an outward direction. Point the breasts ahead and then sit back between the pumps. The back area is erect. Place the arms on the hip and feet.
No Smoking after meal – Research from expert’s shows that using tobacco after meals is much like smoking 10 cigarettes .There is greater chance of cancer if you do so. However, cigarette smoking is known to intensify signs of Annoying Intestinal Problem as well as abdomen ulcer. Smoking also has a bad impact on muscle tissue of the digestive tract.
Don’t eat fruits instantly – Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause abdomen to be swollen with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meals or 1hr before meals.
No drinking tea after meal – Because tea has a high-content of acid. This will cause the Protein material in the meals we consume to be solidified thus difficult to process.
Don’t release your belt buckle – Helping to release the buckle after meals will easily cause the bowel to be turned & obstructed.
Don’t take shower – The reason for asking not to take bath after food is that the blood in the stomach that helps digestion reaches the skin and remains there for a long time when we take bath. It means the digestion will not be sufficient or it is delayed. Bathing after meals will cause the increase of blood vessels circulation to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood vessels around the abdomen will therefore decrease. This will damage the intestinal tract in our abdomen.
Don’t walk – Walking right after consuming food is incorrect. Because the intestinal tract needs more blood vessels to help process the meals you ate. If you walk instantly, the blood vessels will go to other body parts, this is not good for digestive function and consumption, and some people may feel like nausea & heavy headed.
Before walking, you have to give at least 30 minutes to go on the night walk to let the intestinal tract process the meals and process the nourishment you consume. After this short relaxes, you can go for at least 20 moment light walk.
Don’t sleep instantly – The meals we consumption will not be able to process properly. Thus will lead to stomach & infection in our bowel.
