Health Tips during Haze - Simple yet effective
I just like to share some tips on how to survive the Haze that we are currently facing. Today is my second day that the company that I work for request the effected region to work from home. Since my house is only less than 10 minutes to office, I still breath the same air. Not just me the whole nation is affected which is the reason why I decided to share what I know that maybe could help to facilitate you during this moment.
As for the Health Tips :
Stay indoors and keep the air clean - Stay indoors as much as possible and keep the doors and windows closed. If you have an air conditioner, switch it on and ensure the air filter is clean. The use of suitable particulate air filters (air filters which remove solid particles from the air) within an enclosed area can also help.
Alleviating the symptoms -Haze often irritates the nose, throat, airways, skin and eyes. The common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, dry throat, cough and eye irritation.
Air passages: Symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, dry throat and cough can be relieved through simple cough tablets or mixtures available in pharmacies.
Eyes: Apply a few drops of saline solution to act as natural tear supplements. This will help wash away haze compounds or dust particles that get into the eyes.
Aloe, orange juice and honey: Mix equal quantities of aloe vera juice and orange juice. Add one table spoon of honey and drink every morning to soothe the throat.
Vinegar: Add two tablespoon of vinegar in a glass of water and take a few swallows as needed. Vinegar dissolves the mucus in the throat and reduces inflammation.
