Do you use hot water to soak your feet every day, is it health or is it a chronic suicide?

Principle of foot bath benefits

The biggest advantage of the foot bath is to improve our blood circulation. The body temperature is closely related to the blood circulation. The blood temperature will be lower and the blood circulation will be lower. The foot has abundant nerve endings and capillaries. Hot water soaking feet have a mild and good stimulating effect on nerves and capillaries. This warm stimuli are reflected to the cerebral cortex, which inhibits the cerebral cortex, and the excited sympathetic nerves smoothly switch to the parasympathetic nerve. After the parasympathetic nerve is excited, the person is in a quiet rest state, thereby improving sleep.

Our feet are farthest from the heart. In addition to gravity, we must support the weight of the body. Therefore, venous return disorders often occur, especially in cold weather, and the peripheral circulation is worse. It often feels cold and even edema. Since more than half of the human blood is concentrated in the veins of the lower extremities, the venous return is better, and it depends on good muscle contraction and joint activity. However, busy modern people lack exercise. If they go to work on weekdays, they will stand on the desk. All day, it is easy to cause poor circulation of the lower extremities, especially those who are older, may not affect the cardiopulmonary function for a long time, and those who have problems with the heart should pay more attention to it; soaking feet can help improve circulation and reduce swelling of the feet. To reduce the stress burden on the heart. Before going to bed, use hot water to soak your feet at a height of about 40 degrees Celsius to the height of the inundated crotch. Soak for 20 to 30 minutes, and frequently add hot water to maintain the temperature. This not only can dilate the tiny blood vessels in the foot, promote systemic blood circulation, but also activate the phagocytic function of the reticuloendothelial system, enhance the permeability of the cell membrane, increase the metabolism, and soak the feet to the heart, and wrap the left and right. It can promote the smooth flow of blood in the foot, improve local nutrition, and improve the overall disease resistance.

The temperature of the foot bath water: it is most suitable to maintain the water temperature at 40 °C. It is especially important to pay attention to diabetes and silver hair. Because the peripheral nerves are less sensitive, the control of water temperature should pay special attention to avoid the risk of burns if the temperature is too high. Some people have a long time to soak their feet, and there will be chest tightness and dizziness. It is because the water temperature is too high, and the blood vessels of the feet are over-expanded. The blood of the human body flows more to the lower limbs, resulting in important organs such as heart, brain and kidney. Insufficient blood supply.
