HOMOEOPATHY FOR WINTER ILLNESS

86

Even though we love the cold and winter mornings, let’s not ignore the negative effects of the season.

People with weakened immune systems may find winter to be difficult. As the environment cools and body heat decreases, the body must also adjust to the new environment, which leads to a variety of diseases that affect both adults and children. Children are particularly vulnerable to the change in climate, which causes them to miss more school and make them more likely to contract many illnesses.

The majority of the illnesses affect both adults and children during these months, so it is important to know how to better manage oneself.

Here are some typical winter problems to consider:

COMMON COLD–While it’s important to keep air conditioners at an even temperature during winter, one is more likely to catch a cold even if they keep switching between warm and cool environments thanks to air conditioners. Prevent this infection by washing your hands frequently. – The direct result of the loss of body heat due to an obvious drop in temperatures leads to cold.

FLUThis disease is airborne, so there is no way to prevent it past a certain point. — Protect yourself from chilly winds, and dress warmly.

ITCHY SKIN— Keep your skin moisturized with petroleum jelly, coconut oil, or almond oil on a regular basis. — Many people with derm-sensitive skin develop itchy skin during the winter.

HEADACHE–– Protect your head from the occasional effects of chilly winds by donning a warm scarf or muffler.

SORE THROAT––Gargle with warm salty water; it really helps to soothe the throat due to its anti-inflammatory properties. They are common in the winter and are typically caused by viral infections.

ASTHMA–People with asthma should be especially cautious in the winter, be regular with your medications, and keep reliever inhalers close by. Cold air is a major trigger of asthma symptoms, such as wheezing and shortness of breath.

PAINFUL JOINTS––A person’s mental and physical health, as well as their overall health, can be improved by daily exercise. Many people with arthritis experience painful and stiff joints in the winter.

HEART ATTACKS— Heart attacks are more frequent in the winter, which may be due to the fact that cold weather raises blood pressure and places an increased burden on the heart. It is also important to stay warm because cold weather makes it harder for the heart to maintain body heat.

BRONCHIOLITISNasal congestion, coughing, low-grade fevers, and wheezing are some of the symptoms of bronchiolitis, a common viral respiratory infection that most frequently affects infants younger than 12 months.

PNEUMONIA—If your child has had a cold for several days and then suddenly develops a high fever and a worsening cough, this could be a sign of pneumonia and you should seek medical attention. – Unlike the other common winter illnesses, pneumonia is often caused by a bacterial infection. It can present in many different ways, sometimes starting as a cold that just continues to worsen.

TONSIL INFECTION–Avoid giving your child anything cold when the weather is cold as it may cause throat irritation, pain, enlarged tonsils, and the inability to swallow food or liquids. – It can be brought on by eating anything cold or even by a virus or bacteria in the air.

ACUTE EAR INFECTION–It is best to diagnose an ear infection as soon as possible because it can develop over night and can cause ear pain, blocked ears, and itchy ears. An excessive cold may cause an acute bacterial ear infection.

Eat freshly prepared food, preferably warm, choose immunity-boosting vegetables to ward off minor colds and coughs, and use homoeopathic medications to stay healthy this season.
