Check – whether your toddler meteoropathic?
Meteoropathic- is this some new trend?
If you think that meteoropathy is something about our ancestors had no idea, think again. This phenomenon, albeit under a different name is mentioned even by Herodotus in his treatise “On the air, water and soil,” stating that those who wish to improve their understanding of the medical art must first take into account the seasons and their impact.
The influence of weather and trouble on the health and behavior of people is also found in the legislation of the Mediterranean countries in which the court lenient judge for acts committed when the southern wind blows. It is thought that southern wind affect at the concentration and behavior of people.
Why weather changes affect to my child?
When it comes to the symptoms that accompany sudden weather changes, it is known that children up to the three years are most susceptible, as well as pregnant women. Biometeorology is relatively young scientific discipline, but scientists know that meteoropathy’s symptoms exacerbate with the arrival of cold air. The arrival of cold air stimulates the secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), which is known as stress hormones and leads to creating a sense of distress and irritability. Increased secretion of ACTH leads to reduced secretion of endorphins, which is a natural anesthetic. Increasing concentrations of ACTH and associated of the endorphins decline reduced the defensive abilities of the body and affects the mood. I have already mentioned that the sudden weather changes harder for kids up to the third year. They become cranky, weepy, worse sleep, skipped meals, and become more impatient. Pay attention to it.Try to distinguish between phases of crying, a situation in which the child is ill and sudden weather changes.
If your child is an atopic individual, it is possible that the cutaneous manifestations and / or obstruction will be more frequent or stronger-intensity when comes to abrupt weather change.
