[Meteoropathy: a syndrome continuously on the increase].Clin Ter. 1992 Jul; 141(7):3-8.CT
The authors describe the different kinds of meteoropathies, pointing out how these disorders are becoming ever more frequent in countries belonging to the consumer and welfare society due to the progressive lowering of body resistance and immunologic responses. These "unfavourable meteosyndromes", as meteoropathies should be called, develop when wave disturbances arrive, and are more manifest and persistent in subjects with neurologic disturbances, i.e. in the presence of anxiety, stress, hypertension, coronary artery disease, arthropathy, hyperthyroidism, etc. The different moments in which meteoropathies are more frequent and the possible therapies are also discussed.
