how to stay healthy during the seasons changeSo everyone asks why we tend to fall sick in between seasons. The reason is the season’s change isn’t a simple flip of a switch, it is a gradual process. In the five element model, in the transition between each season there is a return to the earth phase. This is the period of time where our body’s (and the world) are beginning to adapt to the new season. Its a time for regeneration, but also a time to fall ill. This is because our body is more vulnerable during this transitional phase. In this phase it is important to look at slight changes in your diet and behaviour to adapt to the new season.  You’ll also find your slightly unsettled mentally, this is normal. What is important is to be aware of all this and avoid excessive stress and worry. This will protect you from the common illnesses that strike during the seasons change.
