Many individuals enjoy the fall season. Things are starting to calm down, the weather is starting to turn a little cooler, and holiday preparations are well underway. However, fall is not as fun for many people. Many people get sick in the fall, some people’s allergies may flare up, and many people dislike the gradual reduction in daylight hours, which can occasionally result in seasonal sadness. Here are some pointers for navigating the season safely.
1. Put a scarf on.
The big intestinal channel passes through the arms, shoulders, neck, and face, and ends right close to the nose. Keeping the large intestine channel warm and avoiding exposure to the weather will help you stay healthy since, as many people now understand, the condition of our gastrointestinal system has a significant impact on our immunity. Cold microorganisms can enter the body through pores or the nasal cavity, but draping a scarf around the neck and shoulders can help prevent this. Although scarves shouldn’t be bulky or heavy, they should still cover the neck.
2. Eat in line with the season.
Eating meals that are widely available in the autumn and foods that increase the energy of the lung and large intestine meridians are fantastic ways to maintain balance in the fall-related organs of the lung and large intestine. In the fall, you should consume more warm, cooked foods as opposed to cold, raw foods like salads. Apples, cabbage, carrots, cranberries, ginger, pumpkin, cinnamon, squash, broccoli, sweet potatoes, pears, yams, bananas, nutmeg, and wild rice are among the foods to eat in the fall. Another healthy addition to your regular diet is hot herbal teas, particularly those with ginger and lemon, which have natural antibacterial properties.
3. Drink lots and lots of water.
It’s critical to drink plenty of water during the fall since the big intestine and lungs require moisture to function correctly. Without adequate hydration, the lung meridian-controlled skin might become dry and cracked, which makes it easier for infections to infect the body. In order to flush out any pathogens that do enter the system, the large intestine meridian also requires the right amount of water.
4. Let go of anything that’s not doing you good.
The season of letting go is fall. You should let go of whatever that is holding you back, just like the trees release their vibrantly colored leaves. This can apply to both tangible goods, such as clothing, and mental clutter, such as unresolved emotions. In the spring, letting go of attachments can allow for growth and regeneration.
5. Visit an acupuncturist.
It is a smart idea to boost your regular acupuncture treatments as fall approaches. Numerous acupuncture points aid in improving digestion, boosting immunity, warding off colds, and assisting with emotional release. Why not make use of the available natural power? By doing this, you might just avoid being sick throughout the fall and be better equipped for the months and seasons to come.
