FAST Ramadan is the moment someone can apply a healthy life. Chairperson of the Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI) Covid-19 Task Force Dr. Erlina Burhan, MSc, SpP(K) said that Ramadan is the right time to quit smoking.
As is known, smoking can affect a person’s health, triggering various diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and so on.
“The month of Ramadan is the right time to stop smoking, because smoking is harmful to health,” said Dr. Erlina to MNC Portal.
To realize a healthy life during Ramadan fasting, apart from quitting smoking, he also provides several steps starting from eating a balanced diet.
Then, don’t forget to eat fibrous foods such as fruits and vegetables. Plus, understand drinking water intake and don’t forget to exercise and maintain bedtime.
“Drink sufficient amounts of water so that fluid needs are met so that immunity is maintained. Exercise can be done for about 30 minutes or as long as the body can tolerate it and maintain sufficient sleep time,” explained Dr. Erlina

In connection with this, Dr. Erlina also appealed to those who are taking special medicines, such as tuberculosis, to change the time. “If you are taking routine medicines such as Anti-Tuberculosis Drugs (OAT), then the consumption time can be shifted to after breaking the fast or at dawn,” he ordered.
