Those chilly, windy periods are definitely bad for you. In fact, series of researches conducted seem to agree that you are probably going have heart trouble following chilly winter temperatures and those fast-moving autumn winds, as your heart works tirelessly to keep your body warm causing high blood pressure and increased rate heart.
Of course, that’s not all. With strong winds blowing, your health can be on the line, no thanks to massive dirt, dust and pollen particles being spread around. Your eyes, nose, mouth and even ears could be gateways for these particles. The worse affected are people with allergies.
Some other inconveniences associated with windy weathers include:
Hypothermia: With strong winds and chilly weather, your body temperature is likely to fall below 35˚C (95˚F). The hypothermic condition means your body is losing more heat than it’s able to produce. This condition isn’t one to be joked with as it can be disastrous (more severe health complications or death) if not handled urgently. Some symptoms noticeable with hypothermia include tiredness, clumsiness, shivering, frequent urination (more than usual), and even confusion.
Frostbite: You could also get frostbite from severe windy weather. Frostbite is a condition where cold temperatures damage several parts of the body. The nose, ears, fingers, toes, chin, and cheeks are some of the most affected parts. If you have a frostbitten skin, that portion may become waxy or hard and even change color (white or gray, with severe cases turning the skin black).
Escalating asthma: The most troublesome effect of windy weather is for people with allergies like asthma. Windy weather can either trigger dominant asthma or make symptoms worse.
Fighting diseases, cold and others during windy weathers:
There are several options worth considering. One is to stay warm using materials such as mittens on hands rather than gloves and wearing several layers of clothing, wearing boots and of course hats or scarf. A complete body wraps up.
The other is the use of aromatherapy with key ingredients like Aloe Vera gel to combat diseases, most especially prevent allergies. Aloe gel has strong anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties which can be beneficial to the skin as well as aiding in reducing the risk of an allergic reaction.
