Is your cough and cold due to sudden weather change

The Theory :

Weather alone can't make a person ill, but changes in weather are accompanied by a host of other changes that can give a person flu symptoms. Your body is used to functioning in a certain temperature, so as the seasons change, your body is forced to re-adapt. This includes your immune system, making you more vulnerable to infections and viruses.


When a tropical storm hits or there is a depression , it can make people feel ill. Why doesn't a hot shower do the same? The reason is that it is not the rain or temperature alone that brings about infections. Cold weather gives people runny noses but not a cold, and getting caught in the rain may give people the chills but not a fever. Although weather doesn't directly result in sickness, the symptoms it causes can still leave people feeling under the weather.

The Facts :

Cold weather means more indoor activities, and when people are cooped up inside rooms together with the windows closed, germs are more likely to spread. People don't get as much fresh air as they do in warmer weather, and they may not be as apt to exercise in the cold.

Meanwhile, hot weather means more outdoor activities, which can cause allergies to flare. Pollen in the air often aggravates respiratory problems, irritating existing conditions such as asthma or causing new problems. Dehydration can lead to headaches and heatstroke. These cases send people to the doctor just as much as cases of the flu or colds do in winter.

Prevention :

Nutrition, exercise and hygiene can boost the immune system while the weather changes. Getting enough vitamin C is essential for warding off colds. Zinc, found in foods such as oysters, shellfish and all bran cereals, helps the body make more T-cells, which fight infection. Exercise lowers stress levels that make people vulnerable to viruses, and it may increase the circulation of cells needed to fight infection. And in all temperatures, washing your hands frequently can prevent the spread of the bacteria that causes illness in the first place.

You can also try out the following to be on the safer side :

  1. Wrap a muffler around neck and ears when going outside or cycling.
  2. Gurgle with mild hot water with a pinch of salt in it twice or thrice a day.
  3. Bathe with mild hot water.
  4. Have fresh and juicy fruits everyday but avoid having the same in juice form.
  5. Indulge in some outdoor sports.

Stay fit stay healthy. Have a great Year ahead.
