I have been living and experiencing the New England weather for over 11 years, and I am still not used to the weather changes. Sometimes I think it might be as a result of the tropical climate where I grew up for 15 years that makes me despise everything about the weather changes (summer, spring, fall, winter). I hate the way it changes my overall mood to something unpleasant. In the winter time especially when it snows, I get lethargic, depressed and sometimes medically sick (flu/cold). And as a runner, my knees hurt more than usual in the winter time. This led to my research and curiosity on how do you deal with the weather change and its symptoms.  My research led me to discover how to deal with weather changes and how to manage the symptoms of it. Experiencing Weather change and its symptoms can be medically diagnosed as meteoropathy.

 

Meteoropathy is the different reactions and symptoms that we experience due to weather changes. Some of the weather factors that affect our moods/feelings include temperature, wind, thunder, humidity, and air pressure.  Due to change in weather, we can experience migraines/headaches, mood swings, depression, increase in anxiety, lack of concentration, lack of coordination, sleep disturbances, increase in asthma attacks and inflammation of the lungs and bronchi.

 

The next question is, how do you deal with weather change or meteoropathy. I’m not exactly an expert on this issue, but I was able to research different options and ways to deal with weather change/meteoropathy.

 

Ways to reduce symptoms of weather changes/meteoropathy

 

For headaches/migraines related to weather change/meteoropathy, it is recommended to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Staying hydrated is bad for humidity and dry weather but good for your overall health and can decrease the negative effects of humidity/dry weather . Also, invest in a humidifier and be sure to keep track of the weather with a weather tracker for your home and on the go. Accuweather is a good tool to utilize. Siberian ginseng helps stimulate and strengthen the body and can be helpful supplement for those who suffer from meteoropathy by helping the body adjust to stress.

 

For anxiety, depression, and mood swings due to weather change, try lavender oil or plant, participate in a physical activity like running, hiking or jogging. Studies have shown that exercising can help reduce depression, stress, and anxiety. Lavender oil can help you stay relax and stress-free.

 

For asthma attacks and inflammation of the lungs and bronchi, avoid triggers such as smoking/ second-hand smoking, allergens such as food, pollen, mold, dust mites and pet dander, air pollution and toxins. Use your asthma inhalers as prescribed by a medical professional, consume foods that help fight inflammation such as dark leafy greens, nuts, salmon, fruits, tomatoes, and beets.

 

Fighting any of these symptoms will take time before you start noticing significant changes. Be persistent with your methods, and you will most likely see results.  If you have any suggestion on how to deal with weather changes, please feel free to share.
