10 tips to avoid gastroenteritis
Vomiting, diarrhea, stomach ache … These well-known symptoms are those of gastroenteritis. To pass through, some precautions are necessary.
An organization that has everything it needs will work better and be better able to defend itself against possible microbes.
A balanced diet will provide the body with all the nutrients it needs and help it fight gastroenteritis better.
In autumn and winter, we must focus on fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C.
Wash your hands often
Handwashing is not a guarantee against gastroenteritis, but will certainly keep it further away as 80% of microbes pass through the hands.
It is important to wash your hands especially before preparing the meal, before eating, after using the toilet, after contact with a sick person or after contact with objects in a room.
Reserve the cutlery for personal use
Even without apparent symptoms, we carry viruses and risk contaminating others. It is therefore better not to eat with the same fork as that of your children at the time of the meal and not to exchange the glasses.
Similarly, we do not drink the bottle directly to avoid depositing microbes on the neck.
Avoid direct contact as much as possible
During the sensitive period, that is to say in autumn and winter, everyone is potentially carrying the virus. Without going to the paranoid, it may be useful to avoid certain contacts like the kiss, the handshakes, etc.
If you yourself have gastrointestinal disease, wearing a mask will prevent the virus from spreading
Strengthen your immune system
The winter months put the body to the test because it must fight against both germs and cold. For the booster, natural remedies exist.
A course of royal jelly, sea buckthorn or echinacea strengthens the immune system making it stronger against gastro. Even in contact with the virus, you can get through if the body manages to mobilize enough strength.
Disinfect regularly risky areas or objects
Door handles, toilet bowls, children’s toys, and in general, all surfaces in regular contact with hands must be thoroughly disinfected to avoid indirect contamination.
Choose a powerful product that kills all bacteria and disinfect twice a week minimum in case of gastro or suspected gastro.
Air his house
In the same way, it is essential to ventilate his house.
If it’s a pretty easy move when the temperatures are mild, in the cold season it is much less.
Yet 10 minutes are enough to chase microbes and purify the air.
Use essential oils
Some essential oils are famous for their anti-gastro virtues. Among them: Basil essential oil, Lemon essential oil, Ceylon cinnamon essential oil, Cardamom essential oil, Clove essential oil and Oregano essential oil.
Be careful, each essential oil has its own mode of administration. Some can not be inhaled, ingested or put in direct contact with the skin. It is therefore important to learn about the chosen essential oils.
Do not lend yourself towels
Bath towels are nests with microbes, capable of transmitting diseases. If we are able to coexist with our own bacteria, this is not the case of the person to whom one lends his towel, even if it is a member of the family. Better to have each one’s towel.
The towels will be washed at 60 ° C regularly and well dried between two
Vigilance on the toothbrush
The bacteria pass through the mouth, so everyone must have their own toothbrush. Ideally, everyone should have their own cup as well to prevent the brushes from touching each other.
Finally, if you had the gastro, better to change the toothbrush because the virus can survive long hours between the hairs and could re-infect the body.
