SARS: how to recover quickly?

Health Tips

Getting sick in the first cold months is as easy as shelling pears: the body has not yet got used to the new temperature regime, so the slightest hypothermia can cause colds. The most common diagnosis during this seasonal period is SARS. Goodshapetips tells how to recover from a viral infection quickly and prevent complications.

November is the last autumn month, when the leaves have already fallen and severe colds begin. Winter is just around the corner, we have already bought warm clothes in anticipation of it…

While waiting for transport at stops, running out for smoke breaks without outerwear, in an attempt to wash the windows before the onset of frost, we all get supercooled to one degree or another.

At the same time, our body weakens its defenses, and we become more vulnerable to viruses and bacteria.

This is also facilitated by a large crowd of people in public places – in transport, in shops, places of public leisure and food.

And romantic walks under the moon move under a warm roof …

Bacteria and viruses are most active within a radius of 2-3 meters from a sick person, however, they can also spread over large areas, especially indoors.

Sick people are most contagious in the first three days of the disease – as a rule, we try not to take sick leave and spend this most harmful period for others in transport and at work.

Therefore, do not be surprised if one fine morning you feel unwell and have a fever. You most likely have SARS.

Viruses are more contagious, therefore, as a rule, the cause of the temperature rise is initially a virus, and only then a bacterial infection can join it as a complication.

An exception may be people with existing foci of chronic bacterial infection: chronic tonsillitis, sinusitis, bronchitis, bronchial asthma, pyelonephritis or cystitis.

This generalizing concept includes several similar diseases. It:

Flu – characterized by a sudden rise in temperature to 39-40 degrees, severe intoxication, reaching convulsions, runny nose unexpressed, dry cough, laryngitis, tracheitis, hemorrhagic manifestations (hemorrhagic rash, bleeding).

Often causes complications, including myocarditis and damage to the nervous system.

parainfluenza – the temperature is low or normal, lasts no more than 4 days, severe runny nose, dry barking cough. In children, it can lead to croup!

adenovirus infection – more common among children and often accompanied by conjunctivitis.

Characterized by prolonged (up to 10 days) undulating fever up to 39 degrees, an increase in cervical lymph nodes, gradually increasing intoxication and a wet cough. Can lead to pharyngitis, pneumonia and tonsillitis.

Respiratory syncytial infection – the most common type of SARS.

The temperature is not higher than 38 degrees, it can last up to one week, intoxication is mild, dry cough. May lead to pneumonia or exacerbation of asthma.

Any kind of SARS is unpleasant and dangerous in its own way. Do not neglect your health and be treated without medical supervision.

You should not go to work and public places during the onset and peak of the disease – think about the people around you, who are still healthy!

How to cure SARS

If you still get sick, and there is no way to call a doctor, that is a few simple ways to quickly and painlessly beat a cold:

The room should be well ventilated and the air should be cool.

Tea with honey or raspberries – beautiful and well-known remedy for fever and to strengthen the immune system.

When coughing warm milk with a dissolved piece of butter and figs will help effectively.

To facilitate breathing and improve sputum discharge, alkaline inhalations are good. To do this, boil potato broth or alkaline mineral water and breathe over it for 15-20 minutes.

Aloe or beet juice quickly clear the nose.

Washing eyes with cold strong black tea help with conjunctivitis.

Rubbing with vodka or alcohol will lower the temperature. If this is not enough – take a tablet of paracetamol or aspirin.

Colloidal silver – a natural antibiotic and they can gargle with sore throat, laryngitis or pharyngitis, rinse the nose with its solution for sinusitis or severe rhinitis, lubricate the skin manifestations of the disease, and also take 0.5 teaspoon orally 2 times a day for people with chronic foci of bacterial infections during their exacerbation before consulting a doctor.

As a rule, when you have a cold, you want to drink and do not want to eat.

Listen to your body: eat only light food in limited quantities, it is best if it is fresh vegetables or fruits, and drink more, better warm tea with lemon or rosehip infusion.

It will help reduce intoxication (fever, body aches, pain in the joints and eyes, lethargy, etc.) and enrich the body with vitamin C.

For sore throat rinsing with chamomile, tea tree oil or colloidal silver will help at least once every 2 hours in an acute period.

With a tendency to allergies and to alleviate the general condition (reduce runny nose and cough) you should take antihistamine (anti-allergic) drugs – such as Zirtek, Kestin, Loratodin, etc.

In conclusion, a few words about what should not be done with ARVI without special instructions from the doctor:

  • take antibiotics
  • put jars and mustard plasters until the temperature normalizes,
  • lower the temperature below 38.0 degrees,

  • use cold or hot drinks and food (the temperature should be comfortable, warm, not irritating),

  • overcool or overheat.

Be healthy!
