Yesterday evening, she felt completely exhausted and went to bed early, but anything goes today. The skull is buzzing, the muscles and joints pain, to get Up is not thinking. You must to surrender and report sick. It has survived only ten days ago, the last infection. The colleague, however, is the flourishing life, also all over the November fog of gloom. Not even a cold he gets while the Rest of the team fails, one after the other.
How is it that the willingness of infections to hatch, is as pronounced differently? The vernacular has found descriptions that is a flat as soon as at the other end of the room someone sneezes. "Weak Constitution" means, it often is: "that The is vulnerable." A "bad immune system" is also diagnosed like remote. But what does that mean? And what's the point?
"is The tricky question," says Anthony Schneider, chief of General medicine at the Klinikum rechts der Isar in Munich. "The psycho-immunology plays an important role. It is known that people who are often depressed, more likely to get a cold." Already in the year 2000, is published in the journal "Lancet" a study in which a significant accumulation of cold suffering, it was noted in the case of those seniors, the signs of Depression and that they were often lonely, felt. Peers that were better tuned, and friends and family knew, were with the virus, however, is better finished and less likely to get sick.
regular cuddles as protective factors
For the important role of the Psyche, further findings suggest. So regular cuddles are even regarded as protective factors. Although – at least in the Kissing – tens of Thousands of germs are passed directly, outweighs the positive Stimulus to the immune system by intimately-intimate relationships and delicate touches, which is referred to in the research sober as "social support", social support. Appreciated and to be loved, reduces Stress, relieves tension and allows wounds to heal better. As a result, the immune system is strengthened, as is now a whole series of detailed measurements of immune cells, cytokines and other messenger substances have shown – and which protects also against colds.
Similarly, the phenomenon is explained that parents suffer less often from colds as Singles or couples without children. It they do not get caught as often, also if you have small children scurry as a mobile infectious sources all around you. Psychologists and ENT-Doctors from the U.S. city of Pittsburgh have shown, by paying attention to the subjective perception of the patients, but almost 800 healthy volunteers nasal drops with common cold viruses, the gifts and the following is what is Happening in the neck and throat, as well as the immune response recorded. "With the number of children, the risk of colds decreases," write the psychologists Sheldon Cohen. "This effect has not shown even in the case of those parents whose children live at home."
it Probably also depends on the mix of relationships and the strains that young parents are not as well protected from colds as those who already 25 years of age or older, if the children. Who is still as a Teenager, or in training mother or father and perhaps a single parent has to contend with many difficulties, the overlay, which is often glorified as the "joys of Parenthood". The presses on the Psyche, and the viruses have an easier game.
to push Everything to the state of mind, would be, however, too simple. "You know at least 100 different viruses that can cause these infections," says Thomas Kühlein, head of the Erlangen General medicine at the University hospital. "And so a cold lasts times longer, sometimes shorter, and you yourself is not always the same. The bad news is that The disease is incurable – the good news: you will pass almost always without any damage. We are then back again to the Old, but the infections nerves and torment us."
With increasing age, gets the immune system Exercise
Other external factors such as lack of sleep can make the body more vulnerable. To regularly less than five hours a night of sleep, weakens the immune system, this effect tends to be already after a fitful night noticeable – then it comes more easily to infection. Those who drink alcohol regularly, little and not often is out there, it must also be expected more frequently with colds.
And what of those who have business contact with people? "As a doctor in the house doctor's surgery I had pain felt for a year, a reddened throat and neck eventually, it was over, now I'm rarely sick," says General practitioner Schneider. The immune system gets Exercise, therefore, a number of infections with increasing age, rare. "Why do you get colds, is to say in individual cases difficult," says General practitioner Kühlein. It is important to note that the old therapeutic rule: With the doctor, it takes two weeks, without a 14 days.
