🖑 What is the cause?
☝ We always hear of people who have stroke after a fall in the bath.
🖑 Why have we not heard of falling elsewhere?
👊 When I took part in a healthy lifestyle course, a National Sports Council Professor, who also participated in the course, advised that:
👉 the head should not be washed first in the process of taking a bath (even washing of the hair).
👉 other parts of the body should be cleaned first.
🖑 This is because when the head is wet and cold, blood will flow to the head to warm it up.
👉 If the blood vessels have narrowed, it is likely to cause the blood vessels to rupture.
🖑 Since it usually happens in the bathroom, be sure to raise the awareness to avoid this happening again.
CORRECT PROCESS OF BATH TAKING:
👉 Start the wetness from the sole of the foot.
👉 Progress to the Small legs, the thigh, abdomen and then shoulder.
🖑 At this point, pause for 5-10 seconds.
👉 A feeling like steam/wind overflowing from the body may be observed; and then take a shower as usual.
☝ When a glass is filled with hot water, and then suddenly emptied and filled with cold water; what happens?
👉 The glass will burst💥!!!
🚿 Then, with regards to the human body, what happens?
🖑 Naturally, the body temperature is very hot, whereas the water is very cold,
👉 a cold shower on the body or the head directly would suddenly trap the wind, or deaden it, because the blood vessels got broken.
🖑 Oh, this is why people often suddenly fall over in the bathroom; due to wrong bathing method. And that often causes a stroke or causes a migraine.
🚿This bathing method is suitable for all ages, especially those with Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Migraine/Headache
