Read it in a book and sharing it for the benefit of my readers

1. Donot take a bath
Bathing helps in increase of blood flow especially to the hands, legs and all the parts of the body. Therefore the blood flow to and around the stomach gets reduced. This weakens the digestive system of the stomach.

2. Donot sleep
When one sleeps the body relaxes to the maximum. The blood circulation goes to the brainand stimulates it during sleep. So the stomach and intestine will not be able to digest the food properly leading to gastric trouble and infection in our intestine.

3. Dont loosen the dress or belt
Loosening the dress will cause the intestine to twist and lead to stomach cramps too.

4. Donot eat fruits after meal
Eating fruits immediatly after meal will make the stomach bloated. Fruits should be taken either 1 hour before meal or 2 hours after meal.

5. Donot smoke
Smoking a cigarette immediatly after a meal is equal to smoking 10 cigarettes which is highly dangerous to health.

6. Donot walk
Walking immediatly after the food, will not allow the body to absorb the necessary nutrition from the food. It is a myth that walking 100 steps after meal will help live till 99.

7. Dont drink tea.
Many people feel better to drink a cup of tea after a meal especially while eating out. As thetea leaves contain high acid content, the protien in the food hardens and gets difficult to digest.
