Is it good to take a bath immediately after meals?

I am just wondering whether it is good to take a bath immediately after meal? I am used to doing so but have heard that it may not be good.

So I did a search on google and found the following results that it is Not good to do so.

* It is not a HEALTHY habit. Indigestion may result

* You feel dizzy after taking meal and your body temperature increases because a large portion of your blood is diverted to the stomach so that useful nutrients can be taken up in blood from the digested food. So it is not advisable to take bath immediately after taking food, specially hot food.

* of my friends dad, who is a doctor explain me the same, that if we took bath after bath, our digestions factor will not work as per their regular routine, it will get it disturbed by our bath. That is the reason why, we have to give a minimum of 1 hour gap between our meal/or taking any type of food, and taking bath.

But you can take your meal or any food immediately after having the bath/shower. This will in fact help you to improve your hungry but having bath after food will disturb your digestions and also in some of the other technical factors too
as doctor explained to me. So, it is better to avoid to take bath, immediately after having your food.

* Don’t bathe – Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.
