The influence of magnetic storms can be compared to the effect of strong physical overloading, which impacts quite well on healthy people, but can’t be born that easily by people suffering from health problems.
Magnetic storms can provoke quickened heartbeat, changes in blood pressure, hypertonic crises, cardiac dysrhytmia, tachycardia, extrasystols, strokes, and risk of heart attack. The reason is the setting in disturbance of the electrical impulses of heart.
Magnetic storms not only damage the blood circulation, but also the brain irrigation, because concentration of oxygen in the air sharply decreases and oxygen hunger occurs. Then some of the most common symptoms in result of Sun eruption come – change of mood, exhaustion, headache, dizziness, loss of equilibrium, faints. It is possible to get into stress situation, anxiety, depression, to feel like crying with no reason, your self-esteem to lower drastically, to be nervous, aggressive or prone to conflicts with people around.
Magnetic storms impact negative on sleep, appetite and concentration. Insufficient sleep, absent mind, slower reaction, fatigue and lack of enough energy increase the risk of car accidents (research from the 50s of XXth century made by Reinhold Reiter and Karl Werner, who examine 100 000 car crashes and assume that there are more car accidents during magnetic storms).
During magnetic storms it is also possible to have stomachache, nausea, throwing up, drying of the mouth, sweating and have fever.
How to reduce magnetic storms’ influence?
Move more, take a walk, sport, but in days after Sun eruption avoid too much physical activity, mental overloading and psychical tension. During magnetic storms level of cholesterol is increasing, so it’s better to avoid greasy or sweet foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables and foods rich in vitamins, take enough liquids, but avoid energizing drinks.
