No matter how hard we try and no matter how many “pro this and pro that” food we eat, we can’t escape the fact that there are just some ailments that strike harder during winter. But as the season comes to an end and those grey skies once again turn blue, how exactly is our health likely to benefit?
Our Southend chiropractor highlights three common health complaints that take a step back during spring and summer.
1: The Common Cold
While a sniffly nose and a sore throat can come on in any season, the majority of us bear the brunt of the “lurgy” during the winter.
2: The Flu
Medically known as “influenza” the flu is much more likely to strike during the winter (doctors even call winter the “flu season”). The most effective way to avoid the flu is to keep healthy all year round – even in the summer when the illness is not so common.
3: Painful Joints
Many people who suffer from joint pain notice that their pain and discomfort gets worse in colder weather.
