The Secret of Take a Bath for Health

Good morning, everyone! How are you today? I hope you all fine and healthy…amen. What is the most fun and healthy activity in the morning? Besides doing some exercise, of course. I thought the most fun and health activity in the morning is taking a bath. Everything related with water give us freshness. Water is a substance from nature which has a lot of benefit for human, animal and plants. We all depend on the water. We need water as a daily need. I thought we took a bath every day, right. The main factor we need take a bath for cleanliness but the bath is also useful for health. I heard many people said that they spend much time in bathroom. After working hard all day long, they need to relax. No wonder they soak their body in the bathtub while listening to music or by adding essential oil for aroma therapy. There’s a great sensation while the water touch the skin. All fatigue will disappear as soon as possible.  Personally I’ve proven this many times. After the break from teaching, I felt fresh and I got new power after took a bath.

There’s a study has published by the New England Journal of Medicine showed that the diabetes patients who spent only a half hour soak in a tub of warm water can lower blood sugar levels by about 13 percent. Other research has been done in Japan said that with a 10-minute soak in warm water can improve heart health both of men and women. That’s amazing report just for doing this activity regularly every day. Even I got other information that take a bath also has a role to boost the immune system, prevent skin diseases, even to healing some of serious medical problems. Sometimes we don’t pay attention to this. Just take a bath enough for us, instead there a secret behind take a bath. Most of us thought that this is just an activity to cleanse the body. But with the right ritual we're getting a lot of benefits, especially for our health. Sorry, ritual is like a mystical. How if I use this sentence: with the correct procedures for bathing we got a lot of benefit. I classify the secret of take a bath into two sections. Bathing use warm water and take a bath with the cold water. Cold water is mean not very cold like an ice but water which is not boiled. Curious, please continue to read…………

1. Take a bath with warm water

I think the modern house has been equipped with water heating facilities. We need something quick and instant. We can use this technology to get warm water. But for alternative we can do this manually. By boil the water, and then mix it with cold water. The warm water is ready to use. The benefit a shower using warm water like :

Remove toxins

This is always become a good moment for us if we want to use warm water with temperature around 32-35 Celsius degrees. With this temperature has a function to open the pores which can help remove toxins. Warm bath also can help lowering blood sugar levels, heal sore muscles and helps keep the colon working properly. I recommended the best time for 10-20 minutes.

Infection

Do you remember my hub about the benefit of apple cider vinegar. This time I’ll show to you the combination between take a bath and apple cider vinegar. We can use this method to healing infection like thrush. Thrush can be helped by adding three or four spoon full of apple cider vinegar into the bathtub. It's also good to remove toxins from the body because the vinegar has a function to re-balance the acid. Add the warm water and soak for 15-20 minutes.

Influenza and headache

Actually I never thought before that by simplest activity by soaking feet in warm water can help cure colds and headaches and it also refresh tired legs. Pour the warm water into the bathtub to cover the foot and ankle. What next…… and then we can add a few drops of oils such as lavender, peppermint or lemon.  After finished we can flush with cold water. Do it for 10-20 minutes.

Eczema

As the most annoying skin disease we don’t want to get eczema. But we can share this information to our family or friends. I hope this method can help to reduce eczema and other skin disease like rashes or itching by adding baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) into the bathtub. Sodium bicarbonate acts as an antiseptic. Just follow this instruction: Fill the warm water with one pound of baking soda and stir until blended. It is advisable to soak for 10-20 minutes.

2. Take a bath with cold water

Although I recommend this method, but not all of us get used to using cold water. It back to us and related with our condition. I thought for elderly maybe it difficult to use cold water. This is an exemption for those. My advice is chose the best for us. Don’t push our self if we never do this before or consult with the doctor. The benefit a shower using cold water like :

Good for circulation

Do you felt fatigue very often? This is a sign that there’s a bad circulation in our body. What should we do? Try these tips: soaking the feet alternately between warm water and cold water. Start by soaking the foot for one or two minutes in warm water, then 30 minutes in cold water. Try to do for 15 minutes and then finished with cold water. I also heard that this method also good to launch the blood circulation.

Reduce stress or depression

This could happen very often, right. We can't deny about this. Our life surrounded by a lot of problem like working, family, relationship even family problem. We need simple method to reduce kind of this stress. Bathing with the cold water will be the right answer. I recommended using the temperature around 12-18 Celsius degrees. Take a bath using cold water also good to reduce tension.  I heard other information. It was said that bathing ritual in the morning with cold water usually done by Japanese samurai warriors in the past. This ritual is commonly called Misogi in Japanese. The habit was intended to cleanse the soul so that the mind becomes more calm and get through the days with full of new spirit. Actually this logically happen to our body when a cold shower can relieve depression and stress effect. After take a bath, the body felt fresh, the mind becomes calmer, clearer and more relax, right.

Create healthier hair

There’s a good question for us. What happens to the hair when we washed the hair with cold water? The answer also surprising me, actually the cold water can cover the hair cuticle and good to reduce the hair loss. Hair would be better protected from dirt that is usually attached to the scalp. And then the hair will become healthier and stronger. Hair is the crown of the body, so why we don’t try this.

Reduce the risk of high blood pressure

I heard this information from a hypnotherapist from the American Board of Hypnotherapy. His name is Frederic Premji. He said that bathing with cold water will reduce the risk of high blood pressure, varicose veins and hardening of blood vessels. This was caused by a cold water will launch the entire circulation of blood to the organs of the body.

Improve the health of body tissues

We can get this benefit by take a shower with cold water in the morning. If we keep this habit every day will give a positive impact on the health of body tissue. Other effects are the skin is not dry and become supple, reduce stains and dark circles at the bottom of the eye, give a positive impact on the nail tissue. Nails will become healthier, stronger and not easily cracked.

Increase fertility

Bathing with cold water in the morning have a positive effect on human reproductive health. The benefit is to increase the production of the male testosterone hormone and estrogen hormone in women. As a result, it could increase the fertility and sexual desire. Wow… this is like a second honeymoon, right.

Increase white blood cells

If the white blood cells in the body increase, it is good to increase the body's endurance and the ability to fight the virus. Other positive effect is the body always fit and we don’t easily get sick. Because of the immune system is always well maintained. This information based on to the results of studies in the UK.

    Are you enough to sleep? How much time do you need for sleep? four hours, five hours, six hours or even seven hours. It depends on us, because we have different schedule of work.

Like: drink a cup of coffee or tea, watching television, reading newspaper, brushing our teeth, even take a bath directly after wake up. Are these activities gave us something benefit for our healthy? The answer is depends on our attitude in the morning after wake up. When we have good schedule in sleeping, even got good quality of sleeping. That is 7 until 8 hours. When you start sleeping at ten o'clock at night and you wake up at six o'clock in the morning.
  • Start The Day With Smiling

    Smile is a beauty that was born from the heart and soul, the grace that could calm the feelings, freshness, and reassure the anxious. Smiling is is the most sincere and valuable facial cosmetic, we don’t need to buy this and can be used at any time, it doesn’t cause irritation and inhibits premature aging naturally. With smile, we can please others, the cheapest donation but full of blessing. Cultivate the spirit and show the sincerity. Therefore, why we don’t start the day with pray and smiling.

The benefits of water and the therapeutic effect of taking baths have been known and appreciated for centuries, starting with the Egyptians and Romans. The Middle Ages kind of ignored it all and France came up with a "substitute" inventing perfume which they used and abused:-)))

I am very grateful for having the privilege to merely open taps for warm and cold water and to enjoy luxurious baths and showers daily. My parents – when they were children – and my grandparents and all before them, did not have this privilege, and here are still a lot of poor people in our country who have no choice but to carry water to there homes and to clean themselves with a little water in a little tub. Great hub, prasetio! As always. Please tell us more about your work as a teacher. What times do you teach and where and what is the subjects you teach. Or did you already do a hub about this?

Nothing is more relaxing then a nice hot bath. I add a few drops of eucalyptis and peppermint oil sometimes. Other times I add vinegar and soda which gives the water a nice soft feeling. I mostly take showers. I will increase the bath now that I have read your wonderful hub. Whether I bathe or shower - I go all out. I dim the lights and light candles. Sometimes I light candles using aromatherapy oils. I play soft new age or indian flute music and enjoy the entire experience. I feel re-born after this. If I am sad, I always begin to feel good the minute I feel the water. I am also a "Pisces"/Aquarius" which are water signs. Thank you dear prasetio30 for a re-newed awareness for bathing and the healing effects of water. Blessings to you, my friend.

good hub! I am beginning to wonder if baths are better than showers here in big cities. The water is full of chemicals like chlorine, which evaporates as water cools and sits, but in the shower my body absorbs it all, drying my hair and skin, a bath with salt seems a lot better for me... a lot of good information here...

Darkness009 6 years ago

Sweating evolved mainly to regulate temperature, not to remove toxins. There are no scientific studies that provide evidence of specific health benefits from the removal of toxic substances by sweating.

Real detoxification of foreign substances takes place in the liver, which modifies their chemical structure so they can be excreted by the kidneys which filter them from the blood into the urine.

Look sorry about the rant but it's so annoying to find this added nonsense to a beneficial article.

before taking a bath you should make sure that your bath tub is clean of hair mold and soap scum you should pull your shower curtin down every month and wash it in hot soapy water with bleach if its not white use color safe bleach spin dry and rince with hot water in shower and hang dry. You be surprised how toxic your bathwater is when the tub is not clean. If you have had body sponges for over 3 months throw them out.

A warm bath can indeed be beneficial in so many ways. @30 years ago I went to the wind river mt pass and hiked for about 10 days each day I reached a new Plato becoming more and more spectacular. The water in the streams was so clean and clear. At the highest point there was a glacier fed lake the water was so clear. There was an island in the middle and there was golden trout. They the lake and the fish seemed to be floating. Because the water was so clear. This water had very real healing properties. This journey was magical the water and the environment. A bath in this water would be similar to the fountain of youth. Also water from an artesian well would be similar. I read that hydrofraking is contaminating deep ground water and the toxins are spreading across the entire country. I'm talking about water. A bath you can not have with out it.

Thanks for sharing this with us. I have no bathtub so I will have to substitute my shower. I do want to be sure my BP stays in check but I am not much of a penguin and do not like cold showers so much. I will have to give it a try by gradually reducing the temp of the water.

Very interesting as always.. ps

I downsized from a large house into a tiny apartment about a year ago. This place has NO bath tub! I really miss my tub. I am not so fond of showers, but I have no choice. I used to love to take a long warm bath.

The photos you chose for this Hub are very good, by the way.

Voted this Hub UP, etc.

Can we get the same benefits with just a shower? I didn't know a bath provided so many rewards. Very good hub my friend. Makes me want to soak in a tub! Will share. Thank you Pras.
