Therapist explains why people often catch colds with the arrival of spring 22:47

Fluctuations in air temperature and atmospheric pressure always force the immune system to adapt to the new season, making it more susceptible to viruses and infections that spread more quickly with the change of seasons. This causes not only an increase in seasonal diseases, but also exacerbations of chronic ones. This was told by Olesya Savelyeva, a senior doctor at Medicina JSC.

According to the expert, the transition from winter to spring can be facilitated by regulating lifestyle and nutrition.

“We should eat more foods containing vitamin C and zinc. Physical exercise and sports are also important as they help strengthen the immune system,” the doctor advised.

Since quality sleep greatly affects the condition of the body, it is also necessary to pay attention to sleep hygiene. That is why at night you should not eat heavy food, and the bedroom should be dark, quiet and cool – the temperature should not exceed 20 ° C.

“After winter, the body is deprived of vitamin D, which is produced under the influence of sunlight. Their reserves also need to be replenished, otherwise sleep problems may arise, ”said Olesya Savelyeva.

Another way to protect yourself from seasonal colds, said the doctor, is regular walks in the fresh air. At the same time, you need to dress in a way that you will not sweat on the street and indoors.

“Those who often suffer from rhinitis or bronchitis should wear a scarf in the spring. It will protect not only the neck, but also the face from wind and moisture. A common mistake many people make is to start dressing easily in advance. In the first months of spring, you should not immediately wear light raincoats – outerwear should be tight, ”the therapist said.

Former immunologist listed plants for the prevention of respiratory diseases.
