PEGASUS REPORTERS, LAGOS |SEPTEMBER 8, 2021

We’ve heard of people slumping or suffering a stroke in the bathroom and statistics reveal that more men suffer from this accident than women. What is the cause and why?

What Is The Cause?

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 awareness to avoid this happening again.

Why Do More men Suffer The Accident Than Women?

Men do because most men keep their hair low and during bathing, they pour water of their head. On the other hand, women don’t often wash their heads because of hairstyling.

Correct Way To Take Your Bath:

  • 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.

WISDOM:

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.

This is why people often suddenly fall over in the bathroom; due to a wrong bathing method. And that often causes a stroke or causes a migraine.

ADVICE:

This bathing method is suitable for all ages, especially those with diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol and migraine/headache.
