3 Reasons Why Eating With Fingers Is Way More Healthier.

In this modern society, eating food with hands can sometimes be perceived as being unhygienic, but you won’t believe that it is even more hygienic and healthier than eating with a spoon or a fork.
Here are the 3 Reasons why eating with hands is way more healthier.


According to Ayurveda, human body is composed of five elements – air, water, fire, earth and space. An imbalance in any one of these elements can disrupt the immunity system and cause various diseases. Each of our finger is related to one of the five elements. So when we eat food with our hands, we join our thumb and fingers which maintains the balance between these elements and therefore strengthen the immunity system.


According to Ayurveda, the body makes a response to food-touching by producing the required digestive juices and enzymes. All this starts even before the food reaches the lips. The finger tips have millions of nerve endings which get a reading of the texture and temperature of the food. This reading is sent as a signal to the stomach and readies it to generate the necessary digestive juices, which helps in better digestion.

An Unemployed Man

An Man was unemployed for a long time. He could not find a job so he opened a medical clinic and puts a sign up outside: “Get your treatment for $500, if not treated get back $1,000.”
One Doctor thinks this is a good opportunity to earn $1,000 and goes to his clinic. Doctor: “I have lost taste in my mouth.”
Man : “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”
Doctor: “This is Gasoline!” Man : “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”
The Doctor gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days later to recover his money. Doctor: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”
Man: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”
