We may still be stuck in “mud season” but that’s no reason for you to feel muddy yourself. The lingering change in seasons can be stressful for many people’s immune systems, what with the rapidly changing, unpredictable weather and the preponderance of pollen, springtime’s allergen, heavy breezes can be exceedingly uncomfortable for many folks. Head into this season well equipped to protect your health with these three methods for maintaining a figurative and literal spring in your step:

Fight Those Allergens

If your allergies are keeping you from enjoying light spring showers, double rainbows, and endless fields of tulips, consider natural remedies like butterber — an herb used to relieve headaches, fever, and nasal congestion — but check with your physician first, butterber can disagree with some medications. Adding a bit of local raw honey to your daily coffee or tea can also help combat allergens.

Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning is more than dusting under the couch — rethinking your winter comfort meals in favor of spring’s colorful harvests will leave your refrigerator and pantry decidedly in line with the rest of your freshly scrubbed home. Consider meal planning with our nutritionist, Amy Hardesty, to create accountability with your dietary adjustments.

Go Outside

Get outside when the weather allows. Northwestern winters are notoriously grey and wet; slather on some sunscreen and soak up some well-deserved sunshine to balance out the effects of another chilly, watery winter.

Dr. Della Parker treats all types of conditions, but has a special interest in digestive problems, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid dysfunction. This year, make your health a priority.
