Premier Care Center Covers the Top Five Ways Weather Impacts Your Health February 9, 2015

Premier Care Center Covers the Top Five Ways Weather Impacts Your Health, Oyster Bay, New York

Winter is here and going nowhere fast. This is an unfortunate truth. But what many of us may not know is the extent to which the four seasons can really do a number on our health and well-being. At the Premier Care Center, we are constantly researching the ways in which our bodies and minds are impacting by the elements. Read on to find out more about how the seemingly innocuous rain, snow, and plants are truly doing a number on you.

1. Mood – The winter months are often associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder, an illness that explains why so many people find themselves feeling out of whack, depressed, and lethargic as the days get shorter and the temperature drops.

2. Eczema – Another unpleasant side-effect of the winter weather is unbearably itchy, flaky, irritated skin. The redness and dryness you find yourself battling all winter long could likely be diagnosed as eczema, a common skin condition that afflicts millions of people every year.

3. Asthma – For asthma suffers who feel like their symptoms are lightening up, cold, windy weather can really reverse all that progress and bring back the wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath like never before.

4. Allergies – When spring finally comes and the flower buds make their first appearance, you may notice yourself sneezing and scratching your itchy eyes more often. Pollen count is often associated with allergies, but luckily these symptoms can be kept at bay with a healthy dose of medication.

5. Blood Pressure – Whether you typically have blood pressure issues or it runs in your family, scientists have found that cold weather can cause an increase in blood pressure while hotter temperatures can lower it. Typically, those over the age of 60 are more likely to experience these symptoms, but it can happen to anyone.
