The link between weather and health is well-documented. For example, extreme heat waves have been linked to increased rates of hospitalization and mortality, while cold snaps have been tied to increased rates of heart attacks and strokes.
But the effects of weather on health go beyond these acute effects. Studies have also shown that weather can contribute to the development of chronic conditions such as asthma and arthritis, and that it can aggravate existing conditions such as diabetes and respiratory problems.
There are a number of ways in which weather can impact health. For one, weather can affect our mood and energy levels, which can in turn impact our physical health. weather can also directly impact our physical health by affecting the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.
In addition, weather can indirectly impact our health by affecting the way we live our lives. For instance, bad weather can lead to increased stress levels, which can have a negative impact on our health.
First, it’s important to stay aware of the forecast and be prepared for extreme weather conditions. If you know that a heat wave is coming, for example, take steps to stay cool and hydrated. If you know that a cold snap is on the way, take steps to stay warm and dry.
Third, if you have a chronic condition such as asthma or arthritis, be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions for managing your condition. This may include taking medication as prescribed and avoiding triggers that can worsen your symptoms.

welcome to Health Alert I'm dr. Alan
Mandel chiropractic physician today's
topic is how weather affects our health
we actually heard about how weather
affects how we feel
you are right it does affect our health
many people I know of will come to me
and say it's gonna rain I say how do you
know they say I feel pain in my body
we've all heard that statement before
now it's thought to be the barometric
pressure now what happens is we live in
an ocean of error the atmospheric
pressure pushing upon our body is
enormous and the reason we are not
crushed by this error is because there's
an equal pressure within us pushing
outward now thus the inside and outside
pressures are neutralized so the
atmospheric pressure around us may drop
suddenly before a storm the pressure
inside of us pushing outward does not
equalize as quickly as the atmospheric
pressure around us and so what happens
is our body starts to swell it expands
outward and when this happens our body
fluids flow into the tissue spaces
putting more pressure on the nerve
endings eventually more aches and pains
what comes down must come up and vice
versa and so after the storm clears and
the atmospheric pressure goes up the
environmental pressure squeezes our body
this pushes the fluids from the tissue
spaces back in the blood vessels guess
what less pressure in the nerve endings
which results in less pain and so the
pain eventually starts to disappear well
obviously we cannot change the weather
or the barometer but we can continue to
take better care of ourselves by
exercise good nutrition positive mental
attitude do all the right things we can
control I hope you enjoy listening with
me here on health alert thanks again I'm
