This controllable part of the human nervous system normally ensures that the body adapts quickly and easily to changing external conditions. Thus, the autonomic nervous system controls the constriction or dilation of blood vessels according to the external ambient temperature and makes us sweat in the heat or shivering in the cold. In weather dependent people of this system is out of whack and responds increasingly to external influences. This leads to discomfort and adverse health effects such as headaches, fatigue, insomnia, listlessness or general malaise. This may be particularly sensitive people react before the actual change in the weather. A possible cause for reaction on the increasing weather, especially among the women suffer, is today’s lifestyle. For example, many activities were carried out in the open and the body didn’t able to quickly adapt to changing weather conditions, currently hinder air-conditioned rooms with controlled temperature and humidity, to the work of the autonomic nervous system.

Thus, if you make daily walks in changes weather, you must have appropriate clothes, and your risk will be significantly reduced. In addition, regular sauna visits support the body’s thermoregulation while strengthening the immune system. You also need to:
