Health Ready For Monsoon

  • June 28, 2019

Temperature fluctuation and dampness in the air marks the arrival of monsoon and the onset of plethora of diseases. Other factors like pollution, sudden change in the temperature and low immunity leads to high susceptibility towards infections. Whereas dengue, malaria, cholera and diarrhea are some of the typical diseases of monsoon, but persistent coughing and falling ill regularly are also commonly observed diseases.

An episode of cough that lasts longer than a couple of weeks starts affecting the quality of life of the patient. Most often, the coughing aggravates at night affecting good night’s sleep which leads to a vicious cycle of physical and physiological cycle of the body, leading to fatigue, dizziness and fever.

Infections during monsoon starts with cold and cough which ultimately leads to upper respiratory tract infections which spreads to the rest of the body. Symptoms of cold and cough develop gradually. Headache, sore throat, episodes of chills and fever, watery eyes and body ache are some of the symptoms which should never be overlooked.

Coughing stays for a longer period of time during monsoons also the chances of recurring cough increases. In some cases, fever and cold might get cleared but cough persists.

It is always advisable to consult your physician whenever there is an attack of infection, but there are some good tips which will help you stay healthy in this cough prone season:

Carry your rain gear

Getting wet in rain is a nostalgic feeling but sudden change in body temperature leads to flu and cold. It’s not only the best rain repulsive gear but also a prevention from falling sick.

Keep your nutrition up

Eating healthy food is the cheapest way to stay fit. Drinking a hot soup or taking vitamin-C rich diet helps in boosting the immunity of the body. A delicious, hot and healthy meal is what makes rainy days warmer.

Wash your hands

The easiest and the beat way to stay away from infections is to wash your hands thoroughly with soap or any disinfectant. Washing hands thoroughly means cleaning hands between the fingers, in the nails and on the upper side of the hand as well.

Carry backup clothes

It’s quite easy to get wet in rainy season and staying for a long time in wet clothes catches flu and infection quite easily. It’s always advised to carry an extra pair of clothes while stepping out of the house in order to stay fresh and smell good.

Drink plenty of water

There is nothing better than sipping a hot drink while it’s raining outside, but extra consumption of tea and coffee cuts down your water intake. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of warm water in a day with a squeeze of lemon which helps in keeping blood circulation up and boosts immunity as well.

Staying happy and healthy this rainy season takes a lot more efforts than it seems. Simply singing rain, rain go away will not take away health mess. Prepare and protect your health with an extra effort and feel the rains, don’t just get wet.
