The weather seems to be fluctuating by the day!
In addition to bringing unpredictability in the climate, such changes bring a host of health problems too. Eating according to the seasons is what nature demands!
The real problem isn’t with the changes that occur around us in the climate, but our failures to change our dietary habits with the changing of seasons. In fact, nearly all functions in our body change when the seasons change!
Your Gut Bacteria turn over, your Immune system changes, and your Hormones and Moods change !
Our ancestors had it all figured out. They knew that changes in seasons were inevitable and that man must change his or her diet and lifestyle accordingly. They therefore, spaced festivals all the year-round, to signal specific changes that had to be ushered in at certain times of the year
Our bodies are really intelligent, and they work to keep us regulated and balanced when the world around us changes. This, is called “Homeostasis”, a big part of which is body temperature regulation.
A little bit of Science for the interested –
“The human body modifies itself to an insulin-resistant state during winters to be more fuel-efficient & perform optimally with a small amount of food. Our liver boosts fat production so that we are prepared for the ‘Winter’.
Similarly, during late winters and early spring, the body shifts back to an insulin-sensitive state to prepare for the summer and the abundance of food.”
