Many people suffer from weakness of the body in winter season because of inappropriate consumption of food rich in meat products as well as insufficient consumption of vitamins and minerals. In Spring and Autumn, the human body faces weakness which is sometimes known as generalized weakness, caused by many changes brought by these seasons. This generalized weakness in a specialized terminology, is known as “Asthenia”. “Spring asthenia”, as well as that of Autumn is characterized by general weakness state of the body with anxiety, irritability, eating disorders, discomfort, etc.
Spring is one of the seasons causing trouble to the people with high sensitivity and weak immune system. In spring, many people complain about the lack of tone, decreased body fitness with a “bad” state of health that cannot be defined, despite the normal results of medical examinations. The reason is “Spring Asthenia”. Spring asthenia is not a disease but a “disorder” of health, which simply deals with nutrition, sports and rest. However, spring asthenia should not be ignored, as it may prone to cause depression, which may be a serious condition.
Although, spring asthenia can affect anyone, most cases are reported among women (75%) who have a physical and emotional vulnerability than men. In women, spring asthenia may be associated with hormonal disorders such as ovulation, pregnancy, menopause, etc. According to a theory, spring asthenia is caused by decreased concentrations of beta endorphin in blood plasma. Beta endorphins are hormones, that in normal/high concentrations, induce a state of calm and well- being.
Spring asthenia, beside generalized weakness by which it characterized, is also accompanied by apathy, insomnia with a feeling of tiredness, sometimes with angry or melancholic behavior. Spring asthenia manifestations also include headache, palpitations, nervousness, lack of concentration and memory etc. that arise due to changes in temperature and luminosity. The body must adapt to these changes, to enact a new lifestyle with the help of other energy resources, even more if the person is experiencing a deficiency of vitamins and minerals. Lack of exercise as well as flu and frequent colds in winter season can be some of the causes of spring asthenia.
The transition from one season to another might not be felt by those who are constantly physically active and people who do not have frequent health problems. But people with sedentary life style and those who have office work may suffer from the problems of fatigue and physical weakness specific to spring asthenia. This is to be mentioned that most physicians believe that spring asthenia does not require medication. By daily walk in the park, mountain vacations, consumption of fruits and vegetables, proper rest and relaxation, a person can get rid of spring asthenia within a short time.
Physical exercise stimulates metabolism and the secretion of endorphins, thus, improving mental health. Spending time in fresh air serves to stimulate the brain by increasing oxygenated blood supply as well as stimulates the production of serotonin, which helps improve mental health.
Diet should include spinach, stevia, nettles and wild garlic which are rich in substances that revitalize the body, provide fortifying, diuretic effect and stimulate the liver purification and elimination of toxins, thereby, reducing fatigue state caused by spring asthenia.
For the benefit of the body, coffee can be replaced with green tea. As it is already stated that during this period, the body should be helped to adapt and should be provided enough rest to ensure the required health restoration. For optimum energy levels during day time, an optimum night sleep of at least seven hours is necessary.
The administration of herbal supplements also helps ensure daily energy requirements.
