When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it. Inflammation can be uncomfortable, but it means that the body is starting to heal itself.

The 3rd quarter of the year marks the coldest season in the Philippines. It’s during this time that typhoons pay a visit in every part of our country and Filipinos bring out the best of their winter collection.
With it also comes the weather-related health problems that most of us encounter. Some suffer from common colds and coughs, others skip work because of the good ol’ fashioned fever, and some suffer from neuropathy—or to put it in our terms, glitch
Everything that you can feel right on your nerves.
These things happen more when the weather drops.
Neuropathy—like most chronic pain—often gets worse as temperatures drop. Blood flow slows in your outer extremities when your body is exposed to the cold. Nerve pain—especially in your hands and feet—increases as your circulation decreases.
The cold weather affects almost every part of our body. It can also affect the symptoms of nerve damage in various ways. The cold slows the flow of blood to the hands and feet in an attempt to preserve the body’s core temperature.
This reduction in blood flow to the extremities can lead to both increased pain and damage to the peripheral nerves. Exposure to cold can also cause the muscles to tighten and spasm—pulling on the nerves as they do and resulting in intensified pain in the affected areas.
Steps to be glitch-free during the cold
Just by knowing these things, performing our daily tasks seem to be impossible, or if not, far from being hassle-free. Especially now that the cold season has come.
So how can we be able to remain glitch-free during the cold season? Keep in mind the following:
The rainy season can both be a blessing and a curse to most of us. A blessing because, after so many months under the intense heat of the summer season, we are now experiencing comfort thanks to a drop in the temperature. However, it is also a curse because with it also comes various inconveniences to our bodies: sickness and nerve damage, to list some.
During this time, it’s important that our body does not succumb to nerve damage. Our careers depend on our body’s condition.
Make sure your body is well-equipped with the right vitamins to combat these things! Stack up on vitamin B-Complex and start drinking it everyday. Vitamin B-Complex has essential nutrients that can help in fighting nerve damage and other forms of glitch that the rainy season brings with it.
