Dry cough causes and prevention

 When we feel a sense of accomplishment after exercising hard, we casually do what we shouldn't do.

You worked out so hard! Don't do this! Today, I'm going to share some behaviors that I should never do after exercising.

First, don't eat right after exercising! After exercising, our bodies require more energy than we need. So after exercising, the body eats as much as it wants because of hunger, and then it has no choice but to overeat. So it is good to eat protein-oriented meals 20 to 60 minutes after exercising.


Second, drink water rather than sports drinks after exercising! Drinking sports drinks or sports drinks during or after exercise is a habit of getting closer to obesity. Drinks are high in sugar, so it's best not to drink as much as possible. Also, zero-calorie drinks, which you believe will not gain weight, contain a lot of artificial sweeteners, so you should be careful. It is recommended to drink plenty of water instead of drinks.

Third, stretching rather than taking a nap after exercising! After exercising and taking a shower, my body becomes tired and I fall asleep just by leaning for a while. At this time, taking a nap doesn't help you recover from fatigue at all. It is a much better way to stretch muscles from exercise instead of taking a nap.

People with habitual dry coughs are afraid to leave the house these days. Whenever I cough, I suspect that I am infected with corona. Coughing is a natural physiological phenomenon that spits foreign substances out of the bronchial tubes. If phlegm is not accompanied, it is classified as a dry cough, but if dry cough persists for a long time, it is necessary to suspect certain diseases, not just physiological phenomena.

Generally, depending on the duration of the cough, it is divided into acute cough within two weeks, subacute cough within three to eight weeks, and chronic cough for more than eight weeks. X-ray shows no pneumonia or tuberculosis, is not a smoker, and if the cough persists for more than eight weeks even though he has not recently suffered from a cold or bronchitis, it is likely to be a specific disease.

In the case of rhinitis caused by allergies, seizures occur one after another, and clear runny nose and stuffy nose appear only in certain seasons. In the case of a common cold, similar symptoms improve within a week, but allergic rhinitis continues for weeks to months. Unlike a cold, there is no fever or sore throat.

Asthma is a disease that causes inflammation of the bronchial tubes and causes excessive airway narrowing, which causes repeated difficulties in breathing, coughing, chirping rough breathing (cheonmyeong), and chest stuffy symptoms. It is common enough that about 10 percent of the population, from children to the elderly, is suffering, but the cause is not clear. Cough-type asthma, which only coughs dryly without difficulty breathing or a clear voice during asthma, tends to have worse symptoms at night. It can be diagnosed through bronchogenic tests and treated with bronchial extensants, antihistamines and steroids.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease caused by gastric acid stimulating the esophagus and bronchial tubes also shows dry cough symptoms, accompanied by a burning pain in the chest area. It also improves eating habits and medication to avoid drinking, coffee, and cigarettes. In rare cases, chronic obstructive lung disease or lung cancer may be the cause, so it is recommended to get an accurate diagnosis.

If you have heart disease, you can also develop a dry cough. Lying down posture usually causes sudden occurrence during sleep because it causes blood to gather toward the chest and burden the lungs, but changing posture relieves cough symptoms. If you do not have respiratory problems or continue to receive treatment due to respiratory problems, you should suspect heart disease. In particular, patients with adult diseases such as high blood pressure, dyslipidemia, and diabetes should not cough lightly.

As a good food for coughs, lemon is rich in vitamin C, which helps prevent bronchial inflammation and calm coughs. Honey is also effective in relieving coughs. It is good to mix honey with warm lemon tea and drink it often.

Ginger rolls of ginger and shagol make cough and phlegm go away. It is also a good food for cold hands and feet because it warms the body. Quince is rich in potassium, calcium, and vitamins, which are good for bronchial diseases such as colds and asthma. Just like quince ginger, drinking warm tea is best.

The belly is rich in ruteolin, an antioxidant, which is effective in relieving various bronchial diseases such as coughing and phlegm, and is good for recovering from fatigue. However, the ruteolin ingredient is mainly contained in the pear shell, so it is effective to boil or juice the whole pear.

Broccoli is rich in fiber, vitamins and antioxidants, which are good for strengthening immunity. Sulfolafane removes harmful substances in the lungs. Broccoli is better eaten raw.

Fourth, do not bathe right after exercising!

There are people who take a lower-body bath or bath to relax their body muscles after exercising.

Of course, if you soak yourself in warm water, you will get rid of fatigue, and your muscles will seem to be relaxed, but it is definitely not.

Rather, if you soak yourself in hot water and enjoy a bath, it will interfere with your body, which was burning fat through exercise.

After exercising, take a light shower, and if you want to take a bath, it's better to take it 30 minutes after exercising.
