Why is it more common to get sick during a season transition? As the days get longer and the weather fluctuates from winter to spring, your body is working extra hard to maintain its status quo. It is also the time of year when you get more susceptible to seasonal allergies. As much as we are all excited to see everything begin to get green and bloom again, our regulatory systems have some extra work to do to stay healthy. Read below for some tips to help yourself stay healthy during the season transition.
- Eat mostly warm and cooked foods. Learn more about warm foods here.
- Eat only one serving of raw veggies (like salads) or fruit per day.
- Drink warm water or warm tea.
- Dress in layers and protect your neck in the wind.
- Drink fresh ginger and lemon tea (adding local honey to taste is especially good for allergies).
- Get plenty of sleep.
- Get regular acupuncture treatments and individualized recommendations for herbs and nutrition.
