Both winter and summer are seasons that people look forward to!
However in each season human has its own needs.
A common feature not only of humans but of all living organisms on the planet is the struggle for survival. Proper preparation for dealing with the changes of the weather depending on the season has an important role in this. Winter with very low temperatures and adverse conditions is the most dangerous period for the threat of health. Birds migrate to warmer regions, bears hibernate, bees feed their babies with royal jelly, and mammals, including humans, provide adequate nutrition for their young, especially newborns, who are fed colostrum.
It would be very practical and beneficial to be able to adopt all these habits to ensure the best possible state of our health in winter. However, for many reasons it is practically impossible to move constantly or sleep for so many months! But what is not at all difficult is to take care of the adequate nutrition of our body and the strengthening of our immune system using royal jelly and colostrum!
Both are concentrated forms of nutrients that contribute the most to the nutrition of the body. Royal jelly is a product of bees and is a source of a wealth of vitamins and elements such as the complex of B vitamins and calcium and potassium, enzymes and amino acids. In addition, it strengthens the immune system and helps stimulate white blood cells, greatly strengthening the body's defenses. Colostrum contains a combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and antibodies and is intended to "build" and strengthen the baby's immune system, protecting it from a variety of diseases. Their high nutritional value has led to the need to make dietary supplements, of which they are the main ingredients.
Summer is the pre-eminent season for holidays, short or long trips inside and outside Greece. We will develop indicatively some common diseases and for their treatment.
The best treatment is and will always be prevention. Medicine is a science that essentially helps the existing mechanisms of treatment of our body, so prevention is the best treatment.
The main pleasure of summer is the life-giving sun. The solar radiation necessary for our mental and physical health through multiple mechanisms, also carries a risk, if we do not enjoy it in moderation.
Man's reckless exposure to sunlight and our reckless exposure to high temperatures is certainly harmful. Some simple rules we need to know from the harmful properties of sunlight to protect us are essential to our health.
1) It is necessary to use sunscreen, medium, up to a high protection index. This is especially true for children and people over 65, because the skin does not have the same reserves of self-healing as young adults. Frequent repetitions and use of some amount of sunscreen throughout the day and not just once a day are necessary.
2) The use of hat and clothes, especially during the hours when the sunlight is maximum, ie at noon. Pay special attention to infants and children under 10 years of age.
Throughout the day we need to compensate for fluid loss with the amount of juice, water and fruit consumption that they replace and the essential electrolytes we lose through sweating.
The bite of our mosquitoes creates itching and makes our nights a hell, while lately, the cases of infection by the West Nile virus, which is transmitted mainly by their bite, have increased.
Protect your skin with repellents which are skin friendly and also suitable for babies and children.
