Washing hands is one of the easiest ways to get rid of bacteria and germs from the body, thus you can reduce the risk of disease, as expressed by Dr. Mercola in Optimal Wellness Center, Chicago.
So, wash your hands, though seem trivial, it is actually very important to help the body remain in a healthy. We know the fact, that there are germs everywhere. Even places, bag, table, floor, door handle, until any new bags look clean though, could be a nest of germs that tend invisible.
Besides, germs proved move easier when shaking hands than kissing. The bacteria that cause infections of the stomach such as salmonella, campylobacter and norovirus can also move easily through the handshake with others.
Washing hands regularly is even more effective than taking medication or supplements flu prevention.
Anti-bacterial soaps that are said to be better than regular soap was evidently not protect better. Soap and water also works better than hand sanitizers. Most hand sanitizers contain triclosan that kills the bacteria and prevent it from coming back, but unfortunately triclosan not only kills bacteria, but also cells of human.
Therefore, choose a natural process of washing hands than practical one. For hand washing process that is right are as follows:
use warm water, rub your hands until the wrist for 10-15 seconds, do not forget to wash the hidden parts such as inter-segment finger and the tip of the nail, then rinse thoroughly.
Even so, you do not need to wash your hands every 5 minutes or almost any time in your daily life. This will cause the skin natural moisture is lost and can cause skin so fragile, so easy to wound and bleed. Too frequent washing of hands can cause dry skin and can easily become infected.
As already mentioned above that hand washing is the easiest way to reduce the risk of get disease on someone, then of course there are a few other ways that can be done to improve the body immune system, for example with adequate rest, reducing stress, exercise, sun every morning so that the body gets intake of vitamin D naturally, and wherever possible avoid sugar and starchy foods, instead consume fibrous foods.
