I never really thought of this before too much becasue to me there is no better place to shake a winter head cold than on a beach chair in Jamaica breathing the sea air. However, when we leave home it can be anywhere from -20 to -40+++. When we go in January, my 12 year old will be doing her open water portion of her Junior PADI scuba certification. She casually mentioned to me that she sure hopes she isn't sick when we go to Jamaica in Jan (becasue if she has a cold, especialy head or sinus she cant dive).
So, I thought I would ask your tips - what do you do in the dead of winter to try to stay healthy before you head south? We eat really healthy so I will be sure to keep the healthy food coming before we go (fruits, veggies, whole grains, etc). And of course, keeping hydtrated with water. But is there anything else you do (such as preventative medicines) that I could consult my dr./pharm about? Cheers! Too Cold
