Yoram Yasur Blume | It´s very common to get a cold when the weather changes and become a little chilly. That happens to me all the time. As soon as the temperature starts to lower.
I start with runny nose, itchy eyes, congestion and what starts like a seasonal allergy. Becomes a cold, that comes to stay!
Winter has that ability, to get us to bed, not only because of the weather, but because of respiratory problems.
It happens to all of my family, every year. It is impossible to change the weather. But what we can do is to prepare ourselves and boost our immune system.
So our body has all the tools to react and fight virus.
Take a look of these advices that will help you avoid getting sick.
According to scientific studies, winter temperatures are the perfect ambiance to develop viruses related with cold and flu.
Because it´s the perfect environment for them.
You can be well covered with jackets, scarf, gloves, and warm clothes.
But viruses and bacteria are all around us, so is very difficult to avoid them. Yoram Yasur Blume´s first advice is to have a healthy diet.
Food is the fuel for our body, if we eat properly, balanced, healthy. Our body will have the weapons to fight virus and bacteria.
Every single bite we get to our mouth is directly absorbed by our system, and will influence our health.
So, try to ingest a higher amount of vitamin C to boost immune system, the responsible of reacting and fighting diseases.
You can find Vitamin C in fruits like lemon, orange, kiwi, and any kind of citric fruits.
Ingesting Zinc is also very important, you can find high doses of zinc in cheese, fish, eggs and bread.
Another good advice:
We should wash our hands constantly.
Our hands are full of bacteria we don´t even are aware of.
So, always have in mind you should wash your hands any time is possible. That is a great way of preventing germs to get into your system.
Our hands are the principal source of bacteria and virus, because we are always touching things.
When you go to the supermarket, you touch everything, you touch doors when you enter a place. You take tools with your hands.
That is why they are so exposed to bacteria all the time.
