Winter is almost over; it is getting warmer outside. However, not everyone is happy about the upcoming season due to possible health problems. About how to support your body, we will tell.
Early spring is a dangerous time of the year. Due to constant temperature changes and jumps in atmospheric pressure, humidity and dampness, possible hypothermia, many diseases worsen: arthritis and arthrosis, hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory diseases of the genitourinary system. A weakened long winter organism has a general resistance to viruses and bacteria.
Finally, we waited for spring. However, many at this time feel far from spring. This is also confirmed by experts, since it is at the beginning of spring that many sores worsen in people. MK-Boulevard found out which ones.
The lack of vitamins and minerals also plays a negative role in the period of flu and colds. At this time, you should not go on diets, refuse meat, fish and butter. In order for the immune system to perform its function well, animal fats and proteins must be present on the menu.
Atherosclerosis, hypertension, heart attack, stroke
In winter, many are tempted by food that is harmful to the heart and blood vessels. Mayonnaise and margarine, purchased pastries, convenience foods, fast food, fatty meat – all this is poison for the cardiovascular system. Foods that contain vitamin C, antioxidants, and polyphenols should be included in the diet. These are cranberries, spinach, broccoli, red cabbage, blueberries and black currants. These substances are found in other vegetables and fruits.
In order to prevent exacerbations of gastrointestinal diseases, it is advisable to adhere to a sparing diet and, again, refuse fast food, convenience foods, fried, smoked, spicy foods. You need to eat regularly and often – at least 5 times a day. Each meal should include either vegetables or fruits. Dinner should be 3-4 hours before bedtime, and a hot breakfast in the morning.
Arthritis and arthrosis, pain in the joints and spine
Hypothermia, temperature changes, colds and physical activity lead to joint pain. Include in the diet dishes containing cartilage, tendons and bones: cabbage soup, borscht, jellied meat, aspic from fish and meat.
In the early spring due to lack of sunlight, heat and vitamin deficiency, the risk of getting sick is really very high. Our task is to prevent this and pay attention to all the symptoms. Paleness and dryness of skin, chapped lips, “seizures”, problems with hair and nails – these are signs of a lack of vitamins, mainly A, E, C and group B. It is advisable to take a biochemical blood test, but you should not prescribe yourself drugs – this is can lead to an even more significant imbalance in the body.
It is worth checking the level of vitamin D and iron. Many begin to lose weight and go on a rigid diet. It is very dangerous. If you quickly get tired, there are problems with sleep, decreased performance – you should consult a specialist.
