If weath­er depen­dence is also your prob­lem, you prob­a­bly know the symp­toms. How to help the body adapt to tem­per­a­ture fluc­tu­a­tions and unfa­vor­able geo­mag­net­ic con­di­tions? Accord­ing to sta­tis­tics, about 73% of the pop­u­la­tion are mete­o­ro­log­i­cal­ly depen­dent and react to sud­den changes in the weath­er, and the fair sex most often suf­fers from them.

At the same time, there are about a third more peo­ple who are sen­si­tive to the weath­er among urban res­i­dents than among rur­al res­i­dents. So the more you move away from nature, the greater the depen­dence of well-being on the weath­er out­side!

Where does weather sensitivity come from?

Experts believe that the more health prob­lems a per­son has in gen­er­al, the more acute­ly and at an ear­li­er age he begins to react to weath­er changes.

In healthy peo­ple, with fluc­tu­a­tions in atmos­pher­ic fac­tors, metab­o­lism changes: the body secretes the right amount of hor­mones, the blood com­po­si­tion and enzyme activ­i­ty change slight­ly.

A cer­tain pro­tec­tive reac­tion of the body to adverse con­di­tions is formed. How­ev­er, due to all sorts of ail­ments, the adap­tive prop­er­ties of the body can be dis­turbed.

In this case, no such restruc­tur­ing occurs. As a result, the most com­mon man­i­fes­ta­tions of the “meteo-dis­ease” are loss of strength and weak­ness, headaches and dizzi­ness. How­ev­er, it is quite pos­si­ble to reduce all these unpleas­ant symp­toms.

If the weath­er fore­cast promis­es “the approach of a cold atmos­pher­ic front”, then it seems that in the morn­ing it will be dif­fi­cult for you to wake up and get up, you will be irri­ta­ble and anx­ious, and it will seem that there is sim­ply no strength for any activ­i­ty. Dur­ing such peri­ods, dis­eases of the kid­neys and lungs can wors­en, joints begin to ache.

● It even sounds a lit­tle cru­el, but in the rain and wind you still need to over­pow­er your­self and leave the house for a walk. Oth­er­wise, you will not be able to accus­tom the body to adap­ta­tion. At least a half-hour walk every day should be your invari­able rule. In the fresh air, the blood is more active­ly enriched with oxy­gen, the metab­o­lism will accel­er­ate.

● Take a con­trast show­er in the morn­ing. Just start increas­ing the dif­fer­ence between the tem­per­a­ture of cold and hot water grad­u­al­ly, a lit­tle every day.

● Try not to overeat, eat less heavy food and more veg­etable and dairy.

● If you have low blood pres­sure, drink orange juice and lemon tea more often.

● Pep­per­mint essen­tial oil will help relieve headaches. Put a cou­ple of drops of oil on a cot­ton pad and gen­tly wipe your tem­ples and fore­head.

● If your joints are aching for the weath­er, a warm­ing oint­ment or a warm heat­ing pad will help.

The approach of a warm front also caus­es unpleas­ant symp­toms for many: headache, prob­lems with sleep and atten­tion. First of all, it threat­ens those who suf­fer from angi­na pec­toris, have had a heart attack or have prob­lems with pres­sure.
● On such days, doc­tors rec­om­mend drink­ing some min­er­al water — brack­ish or with lemon juice, fresh­ly squeezed juice from veg­eta­bles or fruits before meals. It is use­ful to include dish­es from fish, lentils, beets, as well as sea­weed or baked apples in the diet.
● Replace reg­u­lar tea with herbal tea (lin­den, St. John’s wort, chamomile, colts­foot, Ivan tea, mint). Drink it 15 min­utes after lunch and din­ner.
● Before going to bed, take a relax­ing bath with pep­per­mint or laven­der essen­tial oils.
● If you have high blood pres­sure, drink gin­ger tea or fen­nel gin­ger juice. It helps low­er blood cho­les­terol lev­els and pro­motes blood thin­ning.

Many peo­ple have to “feel for them­selves” this peri­od, but first of all, peo­ple with car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases. This is due to the fact that when the Earth­’s mag­net­ic field fluc­tu­ates, the blood runs more slow­ly, the lev­el of adren­a­line and cho­les­terol increas­es. Hence increased irri­tabil­i­ty, fatigue, fatigue.

● At this time, try not to appoint impor­tant things, it is bet­ter not to dri­ve a car and do not do work relat­ed to atten­tion.

● Elim­i­nate alco­holic and ton­ic drinks. In the evening, you can take valer­ian drops, peony tinc­ture or lemon balm tea: seda­tives will help to cope with ner­vous­ness and insom­nia.

● Those who suf­fer from car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases should def­i­nite­ly keep their usu­al med­i­cines at hand.

Expert advice. If you suf­fer from changes in atmos­pher­ic pres­sure, tem­per your­self! So you will sig­nif­i­cant­ly increase the adap­tive abil­i­ties of your body. In addi­tion, it has been noticed that unfa­vor­able days are more eas­i­ly tol­er­at­ed in nature. There­fore, instead of lying on the couch, go for a walk in the for­est, in the park or to the reser­voir. You will feel much bet­ter!
