Talking about health in spring and having to give seasonal advice in case of seasonal worries is somewhat difficult even for a doctor with the first ultraviolet radiation, namely the biologically particularly active part of the spring sun - viewed in light. Listen to the keywords once and judge for yourself: spring mortality and spring sadness, spring cheerfulness and spring tiredness, spring cure, spring fashion, spring hat. A thematic confusion to drive you out of your skin.
According to the latest expert opinions, spring fatigue is due to increased hormone release.
But since no one can get out of their skin and the mess is only apparent, but in reality a true reflection of the season, start bravely to familiarize your mind with how you can steer your body through the stormy spring with care and skill .
A new beginning is now everywhere in nature, and popular wisdom knows a wealth of examples with deep symbolic content. Several weeks before March 21st, the beginning of spring in the calendar with equinox, on Sunday Oculi, hunters have always tried to snipe for the first time every year - "Oculi, here they come". At the same time the bees begin to fly out, the sheep are driven to pasture and the chickens are supposed to lay the best eggs. Examples and enough incentive to give the body all the attention it deserves through a long, severe winter.
The human being is a small cosmos in itself, but also an integral part of the large cosmos, which by no means remains without influence on the small one. If you look at this influence from the perspective of the seasons, it is primarily climate and weather that exert it. This would have turned the happy turn of introducing the serious side of the spring issue with the classic, harmless conversation about the weather.
In the weather-related, seasonal biological events of the year, the spring accumulation of unpleasant events of all kinds plays the most prominent role. The rule of the spring summit of deaths and many illnesses applies to almost all countries. Spring is not actually the causal factor, but rather the transition from winter to spring, the compensation of winter poverty through the abundance of spring. It does not mean a real physiological stimulus unless the winter low is noticeable beforehand.
It begins with the ultra-violet night of the winter climate, when the biologically important ultraviolet radiation no longer reaches the deeper layers of the earth's atmosphere. A direct connection from the scarce light leads to a direct connection to the ergosterol in the skin, which is no longer converted into vitamin D in the usual amounts, to a lack of calcium, to blood shifts and various changes in the chemistry of the organs, in which the hormone balance is ultimately involved. Even if people do not hibernate because of that, like hamsters and dormouse, marmots and dormice, many life processes are throttled and switched to economy mode. The stormy young spring initially turned all of this into the opposite, before a balanced middle position settles in.
Suddenly the sun's rays regain their full biological value. If enough vitamin D is built up again and the entire growth is accelerated with an increase in calcium in the blood. One can easily imagine that not only does the winter damage heal as desired, but also undesirable incidents occur: circulatory disorders, blood pressure crises, allergy fluctuations, lots of attacks that are unpleasant in themselves, which experience has shown can sometimes have long-lasting serious consequences. Because the ultraviolet radiation also acts as a hormonal stimulus, spring is finally the high time for internal secretion and brings the annual peak of sexuality with its sunny and dark sides.
After all, a considerable number of important and diverse linked phenomena that justify a few minutes of reflection and reflection. Even if the housed person, as long as he is healthy, can easily intercept these attacks with his energy reservoir, he does better to submit to nature and understand its change by appropriately adapting his habits. That is the deeper meaning of all spring cures, and here you shouldn't protect yourself from fatigue, in general the spring fatigue, for which the decrease in the vitamin content in the food was otherwise blamed, only occurs this year after the spring revitalization and, according to the latest expert opinions, is due to increased hormone release .
This biological phenomenon also starts somewhere with tempting spring fashions and a new spring hat and is perfectly fine. "Spring has given her courage", it said in a popular song from the otherwise often questionable so-called Roaring Twenties. In this point too, it is not least a matter of your prudence and the right measure that spring fatigue is not followed by spring sadness or even worse , but it can be another spring like this in a hundred years.
So be kind to your body and take a spring regimen, even if it's tough on your mind. Certainly not a major diet regimen as described in magazines and usually requires medical assistance; no, a very own, very personal cure. Make a change: Do things that you normally do not like to do and leave others who you normally do not like to leave.
For example, instead of taking a nap for an hour, you can go for an hour's walk or lie down in the spring sun for a quarter of an hour in the spring sun if you have to run a lot and struggle differently. Smokers do without half the cigarette ration and non-smokers on the beloved bar of chocolate. Everyone controls their weight; nobody eats between meals, and all of them ensure a thorough purification of their body with or without a fruit day and pills.
The most effective means: fasting, not starving yourself, systematic fasting according to a set plan with a happy face; Proven for thousands of years. A full meal, two small refreshments. And don't forget that a cure doesn't last four days, but four weeks; and occasionally there is a fortnightly extension. It creates a whole new body feeling, the spring feeling.
One more thing in conclusion: Just as spring has always been for love, love and skin on the one hand are as inseparable as skin and spring on the other. Whenever, like in spring, decisive interventions by nature in the human organism are at stake, the skin gains special importance.
At the same time, with its appendages, especially the hair, it is also a crucially important sexual organ, which sometimes causes evil tongues to address love exclusively as a matter of skin. The skin must take part in the spring treatment. Treat her not only to the first rays of sunshine, but also to a vigorous warm bath with soap and a brush. She will thank you completely if she is then lovingly cared for with a good cream, because besides water she also needs fat.
You not only have to be washed with all waters, as it is popularly called, if you want to survive the aggressive spring weather safely, but also anointed with all the ointments, as they say in Bohemia. Last but not least, behind the fresh skin there must be the firm will to really participate and to honestly endure the cure, which is always a spiritual exercise. Otherwise it would be better to postpone it to next year, which would be a shame for the missed opportunity.
