Weather Changes and Homeopathy
Usually when winters say goodbye, it announces the advent of a warm pleasant spring season. But unfortunately, this weather is not so pleasant for all. For people who are ?weather sensitive? this is a time that they dread, because this changing weather means that their problems are going to be back. To name a few – Allergies, migraines, asthma, mood disorders, rheumatic disorders and skin problems are the ones that show a great tendency to be triggered by or aggravated by weather changes.
Strangely these conditions tend to occur more in such weather sensitive individuals when the weather is changing from one season to another.
For example, it is commonly seen that respiratory allergies aggravate either
during the change from hot to cold or during the change from cold to hot weather. They settle down once the weather has also got settled. March to April and September to October are the worst period during the year.
Then there are the worst of the weather sensitive individuals. These are the ones that are sensitive to the least change. So much so that cannot endure the normal changes of in the day time. They can have strong symptoms coming up at a period during the day due to change in temperature and vanishing within few hours. Simple activities like moving out from a car into open air or even from a room into an open air or vice versa can trigger or aggravate the symptoms. They can be okay one minute and running down with strong symptoms of cold and runny nose the other minute.
Although it may a sound funny and astounding but there are people who can predict rain as accurate as a meteorologist by the condition of the pain in their joints. For those who suffer from rheumatic and joint disorders there are a set of individuals that respond to a very strange change in weather. Their condition aggravates in cloudy weather when the sky is overcast with clouds.
Now the two big questions why does this happen and is their any solution to it?
The answer to the first part is that the medical science is not clearly able to explain all the different reactions occurring due to weather variations. Changes in the atmospheric pressure around us, changes in levels of electromagnetism are few of the possible explanation that seems to fit in.
But one of the biggest factors is that we have started to live in very secure and controlled environment which has rendered our body weak to handle variations in the atmosphere. In other words we have by adding things like heaters and air conditioners and coolers etc made our body less trained to handle weather shocks.
Now the answer to second part, an effective solution lies with Homoeopathic system of medicine. There are different medicines that are there for every change of weather. For example homoeopathic medicine Allium Cepa is very effective for those who see an increase of nasal allergies when weather is changing from cold to hot; Rhododendron when the rheumatic symptoms aggravate during or before the cloudy weather. Homoeopathy understands and treats weather sensitive people according to their individual’s symptoms. For example homoeopathic Medicine prescribed to an individual who suffers from an increase of symptoms from coming out into open air from a warm room would be different from an individual whose condition gets aggravated from walking into a warm room from open air .This is what is called as ?high degree of individualization? and this what gives homoeopathy a strong edge over the conventional system in dealing with such disorder.
