HUMBLE, Texas, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Winterizing the body for colder weather is just as important as preparing a vehicle for frigid temperatures. Dr. David Bush, owner of The Oaks Healthcare, announced that he's offering individuals the opportunity to receive his celebrated newsletter featuring tips on a variety of topics ranging from weight loss to headache relief.
"There's no part of your body that works alone," said Bush. "The body will encounter a variety of problems associated with winter and its colder temperatures. It must be in good working order to combat the difficulties that affect people in cold climates."
Bush noted that one of the best ways families can "winterize" themselves for the season is by getting a flu shot. Influenza is a serious disease that can affect even the healthiest of individuals. It's particularly dangerous for seniors and the very young, and can result in death. In the U.S., the typical flu season can begin as early as October and run into late May.
The Oaks Healthcare provides website visitors with an extensive variety of tools and resources to help them avoid seasonal problems that affect the body and mind. Dr. Bush's comprehensive blog addresses a wide range of topics, from scoliosis and finding a pediatric chiropractor to managed weight loss and school physicals.
The three most common concerns reported during winter months are headaches, stiffness and weight loss. People find themselves staying inside more during inclement weather. Without the infusions of fresh air available in the summer, toxins from a variety of sources can build up, causing headaches and a wide variety of maladies.
Winter air contains less moisture and can lead to drying of sensitive tissues in sinuses, and tension build up from being cooped up indoors is common. Many suffer from headaches associated with eyestrain from prolonged exposure in front of computer screens. Dry, chapped skin is painful, but one of the easiest problems to remedy.
Stiff muscles are common in winter climes and originate from a variety of sources. Past injuries can flare up, causing discomfort and pain. Navigating the treacherous landscapes of winter causes the body to tense up in anticipation of a fall. Operating a snow shovel or snowblower may not be painful at the time, but can manifest hours later with aches and pains throughout the body.
Weight loss in winter months is one of the biggest concerns of people in the U.S. The mind's desire for comfort food and the delicacies encountered during holiday parties can quickly result in packing on more than a few pounds. Many individuals suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of depression that occurs during the shorter, darker days of winter. Others simply defer their regular exercise regimens to avoid getting out in the cold and snow, which in turn leads to weight gain.
The Oaks Healthcare is a multi-disciplinary clinic specializing in whole body health and spinal rehabilitation. Dr. Bush's blog and newsletter offers people new insights into health concerns that trouble them, while providing readers with solutions to alleviate symptoms and find lasting relief.
