During the National Day holiday, it is essential to travel abroad and out of the province. There are also many health knowledge issues that need attention when traveling abroad, such as jet lag issues. It's not worth it if your physical condition affects your mood when traveling.
Rule 1: Before going abroad, preventive injection is not necessary
In order to avoid various infectious diseases, it is recommended to refer to the environment of the tourist site before traveling and take necessary preventive measures before departure, such as influenza vaccine, hepatitis A and B vaccines, tetanus, diphtheria, and other vaccines, as well as taking antimalarial drugs, to avoid infectious diseases.
Rule 2: Drink more water
When traveling, you should supplement more water to reduce the probability of gastrointestinal discomfort; Drinking more water can make your skin feel watery and take photos more beautiful (beauty food); Drink more water on the plane to reduce the chance of being infected with germs; Patients with hypertension and ischemic heart disease especially need to replenish more water when traveling, and should pay attention to sleep (sleep food), and always pay attention to blood pressure (blood pressure food).
Rule 3: Take proper exercise (sports food) for long-distance flights
If you travel on an airplane for a long time and often experience general aches and pains and lower limb edema after arriving at your destination, you can get up every hour and do simple stretching exercises, and gently massage your lower legs, neck, and waist back to reduce the symptoms of soreness and lower limb edema after sitting for a long time, and prevent venous embolism; It is particularly important to remind patients with ischemic heart disease and hypertension that sitting in a chair for a long time can easily cause vascular embolism in the legs, which can lead to sudden death due to pulmonary embolism. Therefore, it is important to get up and walk at regular intervals.
Rule 4: Eating gum and yawning can reduce tinnitus during aircraft takeoff and landing
Whenever an airplane takes off and lands, it often feels like tinnitus, earache, earplugs, or dizziness. You can bring a pack of chewing gum with you and let your mouth chew to alleviate this phenomenon. However, if you have a severe cold, chronic hearing impairment, or eustachian tube dysfunction, you should seek medical treatment before boarding, otherwise the discomfort may worsen.
Rule 5: Wash your hands more, avoid drinking raw food or touching wild animals and plants
The worst fear during the journey is to eat bad stomachs, which can affect physical strength and destroy tourism emotions. "Washing hands more" is the only way to prevent gastrointestinal infections. Avoiding raw food and drinking raw food can reduce the chance of infection.
