How To Avoid a Cold This Winter
3rd Jan 2018
When you think of winter, you think of snow, winter wonderlands, woolly scarves and unfortunately, the common cold. A cold is a mild viral infection that affects the nose, sinuses and upper airways and is spread by being in proximity to a person when they are infected.
A sneeze or cough launches the virus into the air which can then be picked up by anyone close by who comes in to contact with a surface containing the virus.
It is a common myth that being cold starts the virus, but a new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences did prove that a cold multiplies more efficiently in the cold. This shows that keeping warm in cold weather is essential to preventing a cold. SenSpa offers luxury spa days or luxury spa breaks with a range of warm treatments, treatment rooms and facilities heated up to 80°C!
During your spa day, you can also boost your immune system by eating healthily and exercising. The Vitality Spa day has been specially created for those looking to kick start a health and wellness plan or those looking to detox:
To be extra prepared, fill your body with Vitamin C by making this delicious health boosting smoothie recipe. It’s packed with grapefruit that contains 83% of your daily allowance of Vitamin C which promotes a healthy immune system as well as being water rich and full of powerful antioxidants for a cleanse and detox.
It also contains oranges and ginger which have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties with chromium, magnesium and zinc to improve blood flow and prevent chills and fevers. The ginger also helps to absorb and stimulate the essential nutrients in the body.
Prepare for a cold now by blending the ingredients below:
- ½ pink grapefruit
- 1 teaspoon honey
- ½ lemon
- Orange juice
- Ice cubes
