The passing of the year brings a marked change in the weather and the surrounding climate, and often many suffer from diseases and health problems during the changing weather.
In the summer, temperature may increase to their hottest of the year. In autumn, temperature falls. Winter often brings a chill. Some areas may experience snow or ice as well. With the changing weather, you have to adapt yourself according to the climate to live comfortably.
Winter season has started. You might be preparing yourself for the coming cold weather. People often suffer from cold or flu when the season changes. The temperature shifts permit a different group of viruses to flourish and it’s these viruses that make people sick, said Dr Benjamin Kalpan, an internal-medicine physician at Orlando Health in Florida.
It is not only the common cold that is the common disease in this weather but many other common illnesses can also attack on you. Heart attacks, asthma attacks, joint pains, skin itchiness and sinusitis are other ailments which come along with the arrival of winter season.
