How to prevent colds: for those at risk
In a lifetime, each person suffers from ARVI about 200 times. The peak incidence occurs in the cold season, but it is possible to get sick with fever and sore throat, and sometimes very likely, even in the heat.
When is the risk of catching a cold highest?
There are many reasons for the development of colds: from weakened immunity to an extra portion of ice cream. Let's consider the most common ones and tell you what to do in order not to get sick.
Situation 1. Contact with a sick person
It is easiest to "collide" with the pathogen in crowded places. We run the risk of getting infected every day if a person sneezes next to us on the bus or on the street. Our children risk no less, communicating at school or in kindergarten with a child whom their mother brought, despite a runny nose.
It all starts with tiny droplets of phlegm that get into the air when a sick person coughs, sneezes or breathes. We breathe in air and together with it - viruses and bacteria that settle on the mucous membrane of our nose - in the so-called entrance gate of infection. After a few hours, they penetrate deep into the respiratory tract and begin to multiply.
It is easiest to prevent illness at this stage. For this, essential oils are enough. Evaporating, they do two things at once:
- They disinfect the air, destroying bacteria and viruses in it.
- They penetrate the respiratory tract naturally (with inhaled) air and disinfect them.
To prevent colds and to fight the first attacks of viruses, a complex of Dyshi essential oils was developed. It contains natural oils that have antiviral and antibacterial effects, have a pleasant smell and improve mood.
It is enough to drop 2-3 drops of oil Breathe on clothes, on a scarf for a child or on curtains in a room, or spray a little spray in the air, and viruses and bacteria will practically have no chance.
To protect your child from colds, drip Breathe oil on clothes and safely send it to the garden or school. In the office or at work, you can put a napkin with Breathe oil next to you. The essential oils will evaporate gradually, protecting your baby and you all day.
Situation 2. Hypothermia
To catch a cold, it is often enough to sit in a draft or air conditioner, dress too lightly, or get your feet wet. If something like this happened to you, do not ignore these minor troubles. They can cause illness and infection in your household.
When you come into a warm room, take off your wet clothes and rub your body with warming gel. By rubbing certain areas, you improve blood circulation in the organs that are associated with them. So, acting on the hands and feet with the gel, you can increase the blood flow to the nasopharynx. Rub your ribcage to improve blood flow to your lungs.
A good rubbing agent is Breathe's warming gel-cream. It contains a composition of essential oils with antiseptic and tonic properties, as well as red pepper extract. The gel not only warms up the body and improves blood circulation. It relieves muscle pain and reduces the risk of developing SARS.
With hypothermia, colds very often begin in children. They like to walk without hats and in their jackets unbuttoned, they don't care about puddles and wet shoes. The result is a runny nose and fever, the prospect of bed rest and a worried mom.
To prevent the onset of the disease in a child, rub him with Breathe Baby Warming Gel. It contains badger fat, a composition of essential oils and levomenthol. The components act in a complex way: they restore thermoregulation after hypothermia, reduce edema in the airways, improve metabolic processes in the nose and throat, and increase local immunity.
Situation 3. Throat irritation
At first glance, this situation seems to be rare. But remember your feelings after emotional discussions with colleagues or friends or hours of negotiations. Have you ever read at least a half-hour report? Or just chatting with someone in cold weather? And how nice it is to drink a glass of ice water after training or in the summer heat!
And how often a cold comes afterwards! Irritated and damaged mucous membranes are vulnerable to pathogenic viruses and bacteria. Slight discomfort in the throat quickly turns into a cold or sore throat. In order not to bring yourself to a state where every word and every sip hurts, you need to act quickly. Gargles, throat sprays are all good products, but too inconvenient to use in the office or always close at hand.
For people who lead an active lifestyle, Breathe lozenges are suitable, designed to eliminate discomfort in the throat. They contain vitamin C and natural ingredients: essential oils, honey and raspberries or cinnamon. Lozenges soften and disinfect the throat, promote the speedy recovery of damaged mucous membranes and normalize the condition of the throat and nasopharynx. And besides, they are just delicious! A blister with pastilles can always be carried in your purse or even in your pocket - to use it as soon as you need it.
Situation 4. Borderline state
Strictly speaking, this is not an isolated situation. But often we do not have time to track the moment when the infection occurred and the body is in a transitional state. You no longer feel completely healthy and vigorous, but there are still no clear symptoms with which to go to the doctor. Sore throat, nose starts to block slightly, general lethargy. And children in such a situation are also capricious for no reason. What to do?
If sniffing or stuffy nose - use Breathe plaster. It contains essential oils and levomenthol, which make breathing easier and eliminate the cause of nasal congestion - pathogenic viruses and bacteria. Even babies from 2 years old can use the patch. And the patch works for 8 hours.
The next step is to drink plenty of warm drinks. It will wash away harmful microorganisms from the walls of the throat and help the body get rid of toxins. The Dyshi family produces delicious drinks that are convenient and easy to prepare. For children - with linden, chamomile, vitamin C and zinc, and for adults - with propolis, thyme, sage and ginger. Vitamin C and healthy plants will also boost immunity and help your body fight inflammation.
By the way, Dyshi drinks can also be used by those who are not protected from colds. Breathing drinks correspond to the recommendation “an abundant warm drink”.
Remember that you can get sick both in winter and at any other time of the year. And to prevent this from happening, do not postpone the purchase of funds until the fall that will help you quickly cope with the situation and prevent a cold.
