The weather and health

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.

So, what can we do to protect our health from the effects of weather?

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.

Second, it’s important to take care of your health in general. Eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and getting enough sleep are all important for maintaining good health.

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.

Finally, if you think weather is impacting your health, talk to your doctor. He or she can help you determine whether weather is a factor and, if so, how to best protect your health.

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
