Eating food by hand has been an ancient tradition in many parts of the world due to its several benefits.
According to Ayurvedic texts, our body is made up of five elements. Thumb indicates fire, index finger indicates air, middle finger indicates sky, ring finger indicates for earth and little finger indicates water. An imbalance of any one of these elements in our body can lead to many diseases. When we eat with our hands we usually join our fingers and thumb to eat, this is known as a murdra. Hence, when we eat by using hand, we are putting together all the five elements and energizing the food we eat so it helps us become healthy and keep all our body in balance.
Another benefit of eating with your hands is that it requires you to pay attention to what you are eating. You often need to look at the food and focus on what you are putting into your mouth. Also known as mindful eating. Mindful eating has a large number of benefits for your health and one of the most important benefits is the fact that it improves the assimilation of nutrients from the food you eat, enhances digestion, makes you healthier and prevents you from overeating.
Your hands also act to check the temperature of the food, which prevents you from eating food that's too hot and saves your mouth from getting burnt.
Eating by hand also sends signals our stomach that we are about to eat. This, in turn, readies the stomach to digest the food it will receive, helping in better digestion.
So next time you eat, try it by hand and do comment about your experience, till then enjoy this video.
