Here on the east coast of New Jersey, we enjoy four seasons. Winter melts into spring. Spring bursts into summer. Summer makes us hot for action. Autumn brings a slowing of activity and then the cycle repeats itself. Spring and Autumn are like Goldie Locks - not too hot or cold. They serve as the bridge between two more extreme seasons - winter (cold and dry) and summer (hot and damp). According to Ayurvedic and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) teachings, the extremes in weather can affect our health and can create conditions such as fatigue, allergies, colds, flus, respiratory challenges and the like. Spring and Autumn are the times to build health to prepare for the extremes in season so when the extremes arrive, our inner health is fortified. We can do this by drinking teas, adding tinctures to tea, ingesting herbal supplements, eating herbs in meals and by inhaling essential oils.
