It has long been proven that weather affects the body, but many people still do not perceive weather dependence seriously. ?Meanwhile, as many refuse to acknowledge the obvious, depending on weather research evolved into a science: Biometeorology. It examines how the health and performance effects of climate (and especially the weather fluctuations). Weather dependence long ago came to the attention of scientists. The first written evidence, the fixed effect of weather on human total more than 4000 years (they were found in India). Hippocrates himself has studied the impact of climate change on our bodies. His case was continued to set the brightest representatives of science. ? ?One of the most compelling evidence for the existence of meteorological observations is depending on people to have migrated from a temperate climate in the Far North. Almost immediately, they feel worse, many of them have lost interest in life and turn in on themselves. Adaptation to new climatic conditions are so exhausted body immigrants that came back in a mild climate, they could even die. They simply had no resources for acclimatization. Most people are sensitive to weather dependence symptoms occur more easily. The most common ones are: aching joints, headaches, “jumps” in blood pressure or aggravation of chronic diseases. They usually appear shortly before the dramatic change in temperature and atmospheric pressure. ? The weather is primarily responsive cardiac patients: in the days when meteorologists record another “weather” record, dramatically increasing challenges to patients with coronary heart disease and high blood pressure. In addition, increased weather sensitivity has patients with articular rheumatism, people with diseases of the musculoskeletal system, central nervous system and lungs. ? Of all the weather factors most influence on us: sunlight, oxygen content in the air, wind speed and direction, humidity. Deficiency of sunlight produces a state of depression (very similar to depression). In the days when the sun is safely nestled clouds seemed particularly depressed. Proved that artificial lighting does not compensate for the absence of the sun, since the spectral composition of light that gives light is very different from that which gives us the sun and the body quickly recognizes this substitution. ? Weather changes are also reflected in the chemical composition of air. That is, the amount of oxygen. Normally, it should be 21%. Under adverse conditions (high humidity and temperature), its concentration in the air can fall to 12%.Which adversely affects the health of the body: many people feel weak, scattered attention, and you may receive a headache. To compensate for a deficiency of oxygen to breathe more often recommended. ?Wind affects our thermo exchange: when hot it helps rid of excess heat, but at low temperatures, it increases the effects of cold on the body. For example, while increasing its speed at 1m/s our body perceives the air temperature to 2 degrees lower than actual. Some researchers believe that the wind can affect the composition of blood. Observations show that in bad weather on windy days exacerbated chronic diseases, especially when they affect the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. And the “nervous” people who are prone to irritability, the weather can cause anxiety, depression and anxiety. ?Humidity affects the evaporation of moisture from the skin. When it is increased, the evaporation process is worse, in this case, people do not tolerate heat and cold. Lack of moisture leads to increased sweating and with the body and then leaves a large quantity of mineral salts necessary for many vital processes. Best of all, we feel with 45-65% humidity. Most other sensitive are people with hypertension and atherosclerosis. Humidity changes are reflected even in their appearance. With a sharp increase, they tend to fade away. In a healthy person drops humidity can cause weakness, drowsiness and fatigue. ? Weather really affects us however, not all as sad as it may seem. There is treating the symptoms and prevention weather dependence.
