Autumn is a time of quietness after an intense summer - the world is getting ready for winter, the pace of life is slowing down. Man, as an inseparable cog of the natural world, also reacts to the change of season from summer to autumn. And while everyone seems to like the Polish golden autumn, this classic variety is unlikely to be appreciated. Well, let's put it differently. Not welcomed by most of us.
Rain, winds, low temperature and lack of sun - we are talking about such autumn. As the pace of life in nature decreases, so does ours. Cut off from the sun, we become melancholic, lethargic, etc. The lack of favorable aura does not encourage activity in the open air - after all, hardly anyone likes to ride a bike against the wind, which almost chokes him with his rush.
Our organisms deprived of regular movement and dormant in defense by unfavorable aura are particularly vulnerable to various seasonal illnesses during autumn - from the common cold to myalgia and recurrence of rheumatism.
The world of nature, however, has a whole set of valuable substances that will help you survive the worst version of autumn in good health and, equally important, in great humor.
GINGER. The rhizome of this plant native to Asia has great warming properties. Large amounts of ginger will make your blood almost boil! All sorts of pathogens that are just lurking to attack during fall are simply cooked. Ginger also helps digestion, which is useful during autumn, when we theoretically consume high-calorie foods. Often stews or nutritious soups.
Ginger is also a great home remedy for various types of inflammation. It tolerates nausea - check the composition of popular medicines for motion sickness. Basically, in the fall time for ginger, we should speak Mr. Ginger. It will help to survive in good health even in the "fall of the Middle Ages" ?
Gourmets of this super-valuable vegetable claim it tastes best when eaten raw, like an apple. Our cousin's other hero, garlic, is a power when it comes to murdering intruders in the form of viruses and bacteria. Don't you believe Place the onion on the bed next to the patient suffering from pneumonia. It will be black in the morning - it pulls out all sorts of "muck" from the environment. This is why you should not hide it peeled in the refrigerator and it is recommended to eat it immediately after "unpacking" from the shell.
The fact that during the flu epidemic in Ukraine the mayor of a small town ordered the residents to eat a lot of this vegetable is a good advertisement of onion health-promoting properties. Effect? Grim Reaper was crazy in the region, but she hardly touched the inhabitants of the onion, and they built her monument in gratitude.
Garlic likes ginger, and especially Asians know it, but we, Slavs, also - this plant is very often used in our kitchen. Mr. Garlic is an upgraded version of onions - it has larger "eggs". It's like Stallone and Schwarzenegger. Both were Cossacks, but Arnie was a bit bigger though. Allicin contained in garlic is a drone that can find out the most hidden (read - virulent) bacteria.
Studies have shown that a diet rich in garlic helps to fight the symptoms of various colds and flu, and even eliminates their cause in the bud. Similar properties as onions and specific taste sensations. Garlic likes or hates itself, but no one can undermine his role as a guardian of our health during autumn plush.
Were you trying to drink a glass of hot water in the morning with a little honey (to taste) and juice of a squeezed half lemon with the addition of turmeric, ginger and pepper? This is better than coffee! It can also stimulate, but there is no "reunion" when caffeine stops working. And lemon has vitamin C for it. It's a bomb when it comes to the content of this underestimated vitamin (although there are plants that have much more of it - check it out!). Lemon likes ginger and the next ace up its sleeve when it comes to surviving healthy autumn, honey. Drink such a mixture in the morning, and no autumn sickness will not stick to you!
you can choose from a variety of its types, but we personally recommend buckwheat, lime and honeydew on this occasion of the year. It really would take us a place here to describe the properties of these honey species, but we'll try so briefly.
And so, buckwheat is an ideal bactericidal, linden helps sweat diseases out of the body and takes great care of our upper respiratory tract. Honeydew honey, especially from coniferous honeydew, is called royal. And for good reason. It's a treasury of minerals and trace elements. In addition, honeydew honey has great properties that protect the human body against ... radiation. Honey likes lemon and ginger. And it's very ? What else can honey do?
Sauerkraut, pickled cucumbers, yogurt - these are the types of foods that we consider to be probiotics. Useful fermentation bacteria contained in probiotics will take care of your digestive system and immune system during autumn. The latest research indicates that the digestive system is like a second brain and disorders in this field even translate into the health of our head.
Echinacea extracts were very popular among Indians who discovered its health-promoting properties. Echinacea has a lot of flavonoids, and these have great anti-inflammatory properties.
We have come to research which shows that taking Echinacea extracts reduces the risk of catching a cold by almost half. Echinacea can be drunk as a tea, and guess what good autumn tea likes - ginger, honey and lemon.
Our list could not do without this tasty soup. The broth was not without reason recommended by our grandmothers and great-grandmothers during autumn rains. It warms up, hydrates and helps relieve the symptoms that often accompany upper respiratory tract diseases.
We would almost forget! This vitamin, of course, is key to maintaining health and good humor during the cloudy (usually) season of the year, which is autumn. Vitamin D likes fats, which is why it is worth consuming it after high-calorie meals.
Its role in the body is invaluable - it participates in the synthesis of many other substances. The autumn sunshine gives us very little, hence the need for periodic supplementation of this vitamin.
