     We are in the midst of the transition between summer and fall. If you observe nature, dramatic changes are afoot with grass and plants withering, leaves changing color, as well as temperature and humidity declines. Yet most of us pay no attention to the changes that are taking place in our bodies. Our mucus membranes are changing to accomadate for the change in the seasons. We are expending extra energy making these changes and consequently we are more vulnerable to things such as viruses, bacteria, and allergies. So in light of these changes, we should support our body by staying hydrated, getting plenty of rest, eating well, and taking extra vitamin C, echinasea, astragalus etc. Be diligent and care for your body and you may just avoid illness and symptoms that are so prevalent this time of year.
