There is no mistaking that there is an uptake in infections and illness during these colder months, but how much is really dependent on the weather? When we look at the science, weather does in fact impact the interaction of bacteria and viruses, but it’s pretty minor, and does not account for the large uptake of infections.
While we are all at risk for infections during this time of year, there are many things we can do to improve our immune system. By improving our immune system, we help reduce our risk of a full on infection by giving our body the tools it needs to get better. Those who are immune-compromised are of course at even higher risk. If your work requires a lot of time spent around large populations of the public, such as hotels, hospitals, schools, airports etc, you are also at a higher risk.
While it’s easy to let some of our NDK lifestyle habits slip with the busy hustle of the holidays, this is a recipe for a compromised immune system and getting sick. If this happens, don’t be hard on yourself, just be aware and keep habits such as good sleep, movement, and mindfulness a priority.
At the first sign of feeling an infection coming on take the following precautions:
