Headaches, circulatory, and sleeping problems: severe changes in the weather cause many people problems. We reveal what you can do about it and how you can make your body more resistant to the vagaries of the weather.
People who are weather-sensitive react hypersensitively to weather phenomena such as heat waves, föhn, changes in air pressure or temperature drops. The reason: the body must constantly readjust to regulate its temperature, which demands a lot of work from the heart, circulation and musculoskeletal system. Fatigue, tiredness, circulatory problems, pain, but also sleep problems can be the result. We reveal how you can arm your body against the change in weather.
A fit body finds it much easier to adapt to new weather conditions. Even a regular walk can reduce hypersensitivity to weather changes. However, 20 to 40 minutes of running, walking, or cycling – 3 to 4 times a week – is ideal.
2.Do Does Not Dress Too Warmly
Get out in the fresh air in any weather, but be careful not to dress too warmly. You should be dressed as lightly as possible, but without feeling cold. Rolling up your sleeves can also help. This allows air to reach the skin. Important: People with chronic diseases, rheumatics, heart patients, and asthmatics should always protect themselves from the cold.
If the vessels can switch quickly from warm to cold, the weather sensitivity decreases. Alternating showers are ideal for exercising them: Take a warm shower, then a cold one for 30 seconds, and then a warm one again. Alternatively, immerse both arms in 38-degree water for 3 to 5 minutes and then take a cold shower for 30 seconds, then repeat the process again.
4.Sauna & Acupuncture
Sauna sessions have also proven effective against weather sensitivity. Two to three times a week in the sauna will make you more resistant to weather changes. Acupuncture has also been proven to be effective.
5.Do Without Sunglasses
A regular biorhythm can reduce symptoms in weather-sensitive people. It is helpful to always get up, eat and go to sleep at the same time. Since sunlight, in particular, sets our internal clock right in the morning, it is advisable not to wear sunglasses in the morning. It is better to wear them only at noon and use light glasses with UV filters if possible.
Nature also has the right remedy for weather-sensitive people: Essential oils from lemon balm stabilize the nervous system – making it more resistant to the vagaries of the weather. According to one study, 2 teaspoons of lemon balm spirit daily can bring about a 90 percent improvement in symptoms. Alternatively, you can drink a cup of Meissen tea 3 times a day.
Migraines can be avoided by abstaining from nicotine and caffeine.
