How does autumn affect health?

Specialist doctors explained how the change in weather, lower temperatures and autumn conditions affect people’s health, as well as how to help the body cope more easily with the change of season.

There is pain

From a feeling of depression to a lack of energy, and even to more frequent heart attacks, these are all consequences that people rarely attribute to the change of seasons, and more often occur at the beginning of autumn. Experts have listed several ways that autumn affects our health.

Dry eyes

Cold and dry air often dries out the eyes, causing us to feel burning and discomfort.

The reason is that the eyes cannot produce a sufficient amount of tears or produce tears of a poorer quality, so the eye cannot be moistened, explained fellow experts from the “Piedmont Eye Care” clinic in North Carolina. Make it easier on yourself by using artificial tears.

The skin becomes dry and cracked

Experts advise to use moisturizing creams and avoid long hot baths or showers, which only further dry out the skin.

Everything hurts

Do you feel more pain during the colder months? You are not the only one. Research has shown that there is a connection between low temperatures and more severe or frequent pain, especially in the neck or back area. There are many theories, but according to rheumatologist Anisha Dua of the University of Chicago, the reason is simple. Due to the drop in air pressure, the muscles and surrounding tissues stretch. Due to the limited body space, this can cause pain.


When the air gets cold, it’s harder to breathe. Cold, dry air can irritate the airways and cause additional discomfort for people who already have breathing problems due to asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, according to the American Lung Association.
