Weather-sensitivity: why the weather affects us?

What funny relationship can there be between a gray sky and the human body? The answer is: weather-sensitivity! We are not talking here about astrology, but about the consequences that weather variations can have on the human body.

What is weather-sensitivity?

You may be suffering from weather-sensitivity without knowing it. This area, which is increasingly studied, refers to the impact of weather conditions on humans. Some people are indeed more or less affected by the variation of heat, humidity or atmospheric pressure. This type of behavior is generally associated with older people who rightly complain of rheumatic pain, especially when the weather turns to storm, but weather sensitivity does not affect only the oldest of us.

People who are weather-sensitive strongly feel the slightest variations in weather and the consequences on their health are direct. Here are some examples of its many consequences:

  • Headache
