Video: ❶ Winter After Summer: How A Sharp Climate Change Affects The Body
Hot exotic countries are popular tourist routes during the winter season. If you have not yet "checked in" in Thailand or Egypt, among the traveling fraternity you are rather the exception than the rule. But do not rush to get upset because you have not been there yet. Perhaps by doing so you have kept yourself healthy. Location: Location: A sharp change in climate from frosts in Russia to the heat of exotic countries threatens human health with serious shocks. And this is not an assumption, but a completely objective reality, a fact that climatologists have deduced.
It has been proven that acclimatization lasts from five to seven days. If you go on a trip to a hot country for only seven days, then your body, on the contrary, gets a lot of stress during the desired rest. It turns out that a person, having not yet had time to get used to the climate and undergo acclimatization in a new place, is forced to come back - and his body is already shaken by re-acclimatization, and he receives a double negative load.
Taking this into account, the most optimal rest is 21 or 24 days. At the same time, it will be great if, upon returning home, you will have a few days left for adaptation.
If you have recently had an illness (from a common cold to gastritis) or surgery, you should not expose your body to the stress of climate change. When you change the climate zone, your health may worsen.
In the event that you are expecting a child, you should also not change the climate dramatically.
There are also age restrictions: children under 3 and adults over 45 are not recommended to move abruptly from winter to summer. Especially women during menopause need to heed this advice.
If you have chronic illnesses, do not rush to rest in hot countries. This applies primarily to people suffering from cardiovascular, broncho-pulmonary and allergic diseases, as well as pathology of the musculoskeletal system and psycho-emotional disorders. Considering that the age of these diseases has become significantly younger, then, perhaps, the advice to consult a doctor may apply to all tourists over 20 years old. In addition, the doctor can advise you on a holiday home or boarding house operating in a specific climate that is beneficial for you.
When planning a vacation, think about how many steps you change time zones. Doctors believe that the body begins to experience stress already when crossing one time zone, and crossing two time zones, especially at a fast pace, is already a real health hazard. If you do need to move from one time zone to another, if possible, do so by train rather than by plane.
