How to prevent getting sick from the flu
You can prevent germs from making you ill in two ways: prevent entry into the body by careful hygiene, and if they do get in, make sure your body’s natural immune system is able to fight these germs, so they self-destruct before overwhelming the system.
Most flu germs are spread in two ways:
- touching such as hand-to-hand contact
- droplet spread when germs ride along on tiny water droplets that are sneezed or coughed into the air
Try these flu prevention tips to avoid person-to-person spread:
- avoid shaking hands, but bow or give a head nod
- avoid nose-picking as the nose is a breeding ground for germs
- sneeze into a disposable handkerchief and if you don't have one available, sneeze inside your elbow
- shun coughers and sneezers as much as possible.
- avoid crowded rooms
Oral health is a reflection of our overall healthOn March 20 we celebrated the International Oral Health Day'. According to the dentist Richard Kohsiek, who's a board member of the Royal Dutch Dental Association, we should think more often about the consequences of oral health as "Oral health is a reflection of our overall health".
What encompasses good oral health?
"In the mouth there are good and bad bacteria. As long as there is a prober balance between good and bad mouth flora, there is not much wrong. Things only go out of control when the bad bacteria outgrow the good bacteria. "
"Plaque is the white part that we see grow on our teeth is formed by a combination of bacteria and food remnants. Becasue these calcify it grows into tartar on locations where the tooth brush can't reach".
Everything really started with an advertisement in an American muscle magazine with the name MM2K (Muscle Media 2000) for a product called DHEA
At the time, MM2K was a revolutionary magazine because they didn't tell you lies about doping use in sports and bodybuilding and strength sports in particular, unlike other magazines that were solely focused on inspirational stories and faking how bodyubuilding was a doping-free sports.
By contrast, MM2K wrote openly about doping, supplements, nutrition, training, and other gossip stories about health, sports and politics.
MM2K had great contributing authors, such as Bill Philips himself, Dan Duchaine who was seen as the 'mad scientist' and Charles Poliquin, a well-respected personal trainer. Dan Duchaine wrote extensively about diet drugs, which he wrote down in his booklet 'Dirty Dieting', which would become the starting point for more diet books written by Lyle McDonald.
Why do we get the flu in winter?Being cold doesn’t literally make you catch a cold, but it certainly seems likely how the coldest season is, as a matter of fact, the 'cold' season. Why is there a substantial increase in common colds and flus as soon as it gets cold outside?
The flu really does thrive in winterThere’s no doubt that the flu virus somehow thrives in the cold.
As it turns out, the virus is basically designed to jump from person to person when the air is cold and dry. Studies have shown that transmission rates are highest when temperature and humidity are both low. Because cold air naturally holds less water, low humidity levels are typical for winter.
Even when we make our homes comfortably warm, the air stays just as dry unless we use a humidifier.
But why do viruses thrive in cold air?Cold air may help the flu virus survive longer outside of a human host, making it easier to linger after a cough or sneeze. And apparently the virus does a better job of circulating in low humidity.
An infected individual exhales virus encased in tiny water droplets, and those droplets evaporate more quickly if the air is dry. If the flu droplet shrinks fast enough, it can become so light that it circulates around in the air instead of falling to the ground.
Breathe in, breathe out!Did you ever notice you don't have equal air flow through each nostril? Most people alternate between breathing through the left and the right nostril. The only time you are vividly aware of the existence of such a cycle is when you have congestion in just one side of the nose, which results in only being able to breathe more easily every few hours and then feel congested in the other period.
* wash youur hands and fill the Waterpulse bottle with 300ml luke warm water in which 2.7 gram of regular salt has been dissolved
* stand in front of a sink and bend forwards, while making sure your chin is resting on your chest, so the water won't run down your throat
* keep the water bottle upside down and press the nozzle against your nostril, while pressing the white button at the bottom of the bottle
* do NOT keep your breath, but keep breathing through your opened mouth
* preferably start at the nostril that is least clogged upon which you can blow your nose and repeat the process at the other side
Most of the time, 300ml is more than adequate to rinse both nostrils, but when you have a severe cold, you may repeat the entire process a few times after another.
You may rinse your nose at any time of the day, but most people prefer to do it either in the morning or evening, combining it with brushing their teeth.
Rinsing the nose at night has the added advantage of clearing the sinuses before sleeping, which may prevent snoring.
There are no negative effects from rinsing with a lukewarm saline solution.
However rinsing the nose is contra-indicated when you suffer from
- irritated or painful nostrils
- internal nose bleeding
- a nasal blockage
- a broken nose or recently operated nose
- pain during nasal irrigation because of pressure on the sinuses or ears
People who are seeing an ENT-physician, should consult their doctor before starting on nasal irrigation.
