Top Winter Health Issues And How To Beat Them

A chilly nip in the air means winter is finally here! And if you think colds and flu are the only health issues to look out for during this time of year, then you are wrong. The winter season might have its charm but it can be quite taxing for health, especially for older people or someone with a long-term health condition. A sudden drop in temperature can often unravel unpleasant arthritis pain, worsen asthma symptoms, heart ailments and other upper respiratory tract infections, just to name a few. This article highlights some of the common winter-related health issues and how to prevent them.

Here are some of the commonly experienced winter health issues and how to prevent them:

        1. Colds and Flu

Common cold and flu are some of the most common health issues experienced during the winter season. Symptoms can be mild or severe, ranging from mild fever, chills, head congestion, postnasal drip and cough to sometimes nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea, enough to ruin the season. Kids or adults who have weak immune systems are often susceptible to this condition. Maintaining good hygiene, getting plenty of sleep, exercising, avoiding dehydration, getting a flu shot and eating an immune-boosting diet and supplements can be great ways to combat this issue.

Immunoblast Juice, Immunoblast Capsules along with Immune Boosting Tea from Preserva Wellness is the perfect combo you need to boost and strengthen your immunity this winter season. They each contain 95% pure Curcumin extract mixed with other invigorating ingredients that are exceptionally beneficial for bolstering the immune system naturally. 

        2. Dry Skin

A drop in temperature can bring a host of skin troubles. The cold air robs the essential moisture from our skin, which makes it dry, itchy, and flaky, especially after taking a long and hot shower. Over time, this can lead to flaring of eczema, psoriasis, etc. Regularly moisturizing the skin is the key to smooth and healthy skin this winter season. Additionally, UV damage is also common during winter. Hence, make sure to put on your sunscreen before stepping out.

Preserva Oxyrich Juice & Capsules are the solutions to maintaining healthy, nourished skin all through the year. With 100% plant-based ingredients, they naturally help enhance the skin, making it healthier and younger!

        3. Arthritis Pain 

Joint pain or arthritis pains are another common health issue during the winter season. As it gets colder, our bodies tend to conserve more heat. This makes the blood circulate more to the heart and lungs, and less to the arms, shoulders and knee joints, thereby leading to excruciating aches and pain. The best thing to do in these situations is to dress warmly in layers and to remain mobile and active. Immobility can make the pain worse.

The Skeletal Health section in Preserva’s wide-ranging catalogue is worth checking out! From delicious juices to potent capsules to invigorating oil, their products are specifically formulated using powerful Ayurvedic ingredients that benefit the musculoskeletal health and reduce all kinds of symptoms related to arthritis, sciatica, etc.

        4. Heart Attacks

This might seem surprising but heart attacks are quite common during the winter season than most people realize. This is because extreme cold weather can increase blood pressure.  This puts strain on the heart and increases the risk of blood clots or thickening of the blood vessels which leads to heart attack and stroke. Elderly people tend to be more at risk due to hypothermia in the colder months. Staying indoors, dressing warm and keeping heaters in the main rooms can be helpful to avoid this issue.

On top of this, keeping your heart healthy with natural supplements like Cardigold Juice & Cholestoblast Capsules from Preserva Wellness is the way to go as far as improving heart health and enhancing its functioning is concerned. They are beneficial for lowering high blood pressure, reducing bad cholesterol levels, improving the strength and functioning of the arteries and ultimately reducing the risk of heart disease!

         5. Asthma and Bronchitis

Respiratory related health issues, such as asthma and bronchitis, are prevalent during the cold season. Bronchitis, in particular, is common among children below the age of 2 years. Breathing difficulty, sneezing, coughing, chest congestion, wheezing, etc are some of the symptoms developed due to inflammation and narrowing of the airways in asthma and bronchitis. Staying indoors, staying away from allergens, keeping nose and mouth covered, staying hydrated, getting sufficient rest and sleep, and keeping inhalers nearby at all times are great ways to lower the chances of developing these issues.

Daily Strength Juice and Daily Boost Tea from Preserva Wellness are the solutions to enjoying the wintertime with healthy lungs and stronger overall respiratory health. The unique formulation of potent herbs and spices provides relief from sore throat, persistent cough, fever, and promotes easier and better breathing!

        6. Weight gain

Winter is the time most people tend to let go of themselves and indulge in all things warm and comfortable. They tend to work out less and indulge in comforting yet unhealthy foods. As a result, there is an increase in weight gain, which in turn increases the risk of overweight and obesity. Adopting a healthy, balanced diet and regularly exercising (either high intensity or moderate) at least 150 minutes per week is crucial when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight and reducing the risk of overweight or obesity, as well as all the other diseases that entail with it.

Exercising in this cold winter can be quite challenging. That is why Preserva’s Nutrixgold Juice, Turmlitegold Capsules and Weight Watchers Tea are the perfect solutions to naturally managing a healthy weight! The potent formulations in each of the products work wonders in suppressing appetite, boosting the metabolic rate and speeding up the fat-burning process.

The Bottom Line

The winter season is a time for joy and festivity. But what most people do not realize is that it also has its fair share of health hazards. From facing the chilly cold weather to sitting snuggly at home, health issues can stem from all places. That is why it is important to educate ourselves and better understand this topic so that we can prevent not just short-term complications but long-term ailments and diseases. Make sure to adopt these healthy tips so that you minimize your risk of these mentioned health hazards and allow yourself to healthily and happily thrive in the cold months.
