Obesity, obesity, high blood pressure are on the rise – just look at the USA – as is the preoccupation of large parts of the population with the subject of healthy eating.

While her daughter is on the way to the other end of the world, Christine Tiemann sits (name changed by the editors) at the computer and flies with. She knows the flight number, keeps looking to see where her child is. Does the airport in Seoul already list the machine? Does she land on time? If the connecting plane takes to the air?

Fever describes an increase in body temperature in the context of a wide variety of illnesses. It is not an illness in itself, but rather an accompanying symptom, for example, in the context of a cold.

In the guide, you will find information on the following topics:

Fever usually occurs when the immune system fights off foreign substances, such as viruses, bacteria, but also other microorganisms, or when inflammatory processes occur in the body. As the body regulates its core temperature upwards, a self-healing process begins, as many foreign substances cannot survive at temperatures above 39 or 40 degrees Celsius. A fever is defined as a core body temperature of more than 38.5 degrees Celsius, in infants and young children already from 38 degrees Celsius onwards.

For many, sport and nutrition go hand in hand – and there’s a good reason for that. A targeted diet does not make you directly a world champion or Olympic champion, but in the end it can make the millisecond to the podium place or the extra centimeters for the gold medal for high performance athletes. Even recreational athletes can effectively influence their performance and regeneration with a balanced and healthy diet. Often dietary supplements are used and especially in weight training there is a lot of advertising of special preparations. Basically, any healthy athlete can meet his or her macro- and micronutrient needs through a healthy, whole-food, balanced diet.

Healthy and wholesome means the following: 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day (3 hands of vegetables, 2 hands of fruit), more often resort to the whole-grain variety (for pasta, rice and bread, for example), balance fluid intake with water and tea, cut down on sugar and salt (especially fast food), eat healthy or. Prefer vegetable fats (olive oil, nuts, avocado, fish) and enjoy a varied diet.
