Spring Health Tips

Get ready for the allergy season

If you do not want to get stuck using anti-histamines all spring, consider some natural therapies. For example, certain allergies are related to certain foods – eliminating these foods can even eliminate hay fever. Cleansing, especially candida, liver or colon cleansing, can also be very effective for allergy-causing, like homeopathic.

Consider becoming an early bird

Studies have shown that people who wake up earlier are healthier than nightmares who completely miss the morning light. Especially after our long winter without light, it will do you good to take advantage of the early morning light and the vitamin D it provides. Vitamin D (when paired with a healthy diet) has been found to reduce the incidence of colon cancer by two-thirds.

Get dirty

This has a couple of different connotations – feel free to explore what meaning you give “dirty” (please anyone?). However, I refer to dirty in the most literal sense. Who doesn’t remember playing in the puddles as a kid? Heck, who doesn’t remember EATING mud as a kid? Not only is exposure to a little dirt good for your inner child (and your outer children), exposure to bacteria is important for building healthy immune systems. So go out and play in the mud!

Eat seasonally

It’s the season for eating spring baby greens! When choosing greens, go for a blend of flavors: mild, bitter, spicy and spicy. A good example is a mixture of dandelion vegetables, ruccola, escarole, frisée, radicchio and endive. Spring greens are excellent for bone health and the digestive system, increasing digestive juices and enzymes in your liver, pancreas and stomach. Eat them before your dinner to improve your overall health.

Stop and smell the tulips

Even if you do not know how to meditate, living in the present is one of the most valuable principles. I realize you have a lot to do – we all do – but stop in and enjoy all the beauty of your life. Just do what you do, just be where you are. Stop so many tasks and just be. In addition, research shows that being outdoors can have benefits for both your physical and mental health. Then breathe it all in, and stop standing around everything, at least a little.

Spring is full of transition and promise. Enjoy it. If you need help with allergies, cleans or set some goals to take advantage of spring news, contact a holistic doctor.
