Meteorological people are more often interested in what kind of atmospheric pressure is considered normal for a person. The weight of the air mass is so great that the human body can withstand loads of more than 15 tons. Not feel such a load helps compensation, which is carried out by the pressure of internal organs. When, due to problems in the body, the adaptation system does not cope, the weather-dependent person becomes a slave to a weather cataclysm. The intensity of the symptoms depends on how low or high the blood pressure is.
What does the barometer mean?
It is known that the pressure force of the Earth’s air shell on 1 cm² of surface is balanced by a mercury column of 760 mm height. This indicator is taken as the norm. When the barometer gives a result above 760 mm Hg, they say about increased atmospheric pressure when less than 760 mm Hg. Art. – about reduced. Taking into account the fact that the surface of the Earth heats unevenly and the relief is heterogeneous (mountains, lowlands) the readings of the barometer will differ.
Every person is unique. Also unique will be the rate of atmospheric pressure for it. Someone will not notice a flight to another climate zone, and someone will feel the approach of a cyclone, which will manifest a headache and “twisting” of the knees. Others climbed higher into the mountains and feel great, not paying attention to the thin air. The combination of natural and weather conditions under which you can feel comfortable and there is a normal atmospheric pressure for a person. The older a person becomes, the more he feels the change in climate.
Optimum weather table
Everyone is influenced not only by the pressure of the atmosphere, but also by the air temperature and humidity, both outside and inside the house. The optimal indicators and possible consequences of deviations from the norm are given in the table:
- reduced immunity.
- quickens the pulse
- breathing is difficult,
- increased white blood cell count.
- mental speed slows down
- It is difficult to switch from one task to another.
What is meteorological dependence?
Meteo-dependence is the inability of the human body to adapt to changing weather conditions.
Meteozavisimosti more predisposed people suffering from vegetovascular dystonia, hypertension, atherosclerosis, endocrine diseases. The baroreceptors of our organs react to the approach of a cyclone or anticyclone, reducing or increasing blood pressure, making them dependent on weather conditions.
The effect of high atmospheric pressure on the arterial
An increase in atmospheric pressure forces blood pressure to even out an imbalance. Blood pressure decreases, the walls of blood vessels expand. Consequences of hypotension:
- worried about feeling unwell and general weakness;
- torment headaches;
- there is an unpleasant congestion in the ears;
- exacerbated chronic diseases.
The chemical composition of blood in these conditions will show a decrease in the level of leukocytes, and this means that the immune system will find it harder to cope with the infection or virus. The best solution in this situation:
- do not overwork and have a good rest;
- limit alcohol intake at this time;
- Enrich the diet with foods containing potassium (dried fruit) and magnesium (cereal, rye bread).

Effect of reduced atmospheric pressure on humans
The fall in atmospheric pressure with changing weather leads to symptoms that are similar to mountain climbing. Insufficient oxygen is unable to saturate the organs of the human body. Dyspnea appears, the heart knocks more often, the pain presses in the temples and the hoop squeezes the head. People with increased intracranial pressure, head injuries, and cardiovascular diseases are acutely reacting to this.
How to deal with meteorological dependence?
Recommendations should be followed for:
- nutrition – limit the consumption of fatty, salty foods, focus on dairy products, fruits and vegetables;
- work – to balance periods of rest and intensive work, more often to take a break;
- sleep – it should be sufficient, not exceed 7-8 hours, a good solution – do not go to bed later than 11 pm;
- physical activity – regular, moderately intense (daily morning exercises, jogging in summer, skiing in winter);
- water procedures – wiping with cool water, too hot baths are not recommended.
Finding a favorable, ideal condition for life, given the weather effect on a person, is very difficult. Optimal treatment of meteorological dependence should be aimed at increasing the elasticity of the walls of blood vessels. Strengthen the cardiovascular system, align the mental and emotional background. In order to feel more comfortable, doctors recommend meteo-dependent people to take natural adaptogens, such as: tinctures of ginseng, eleutherococcus, hawthorn.
