Change of seasons

 

As the leaves change colour the acorns fall and the days become shorter. This time is a beautiful restructure in nature and we are also a part of it. With the coldness and the reduction in daylight we have to pay extra attention to our bodies needs.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

For some people this time of year can highlight feelings of sadness, low mood and energy. Homeopathy can offer a range of help and support short and long term emotional issues. Also taking some Vitamin B with Folic acid can help boost mood (1). Vitamin D can also be taken to boost energy levels and mood. There is also a decrease of Vitamin D during the winter months, so taking an external adequate amount of Vitamin D may lift your mood and your energy levels (2).
