Our thoughts these days are on transitioning toward autumn:

Changing Seasons: Attuning Your Diet

The middle of August means we begin transitioning to fall in the Bay Area, but not without some of our hottest, driest summer weather yet. You can help your body adjust to the changing seasons by attuning your diet to the changing weather.

Summer means stay hydrated! Include light, cooling vegetables like lettuce, cucumber, sprouts and asparagus, and fruits like lemons, oranges, peaches, melons and watermelons, into your diet. Stay away from icy cold beverages and greasy food.

Fall means incorporate foods that will support your respiratory health. The vitamin A in broccoli, kale and mustard greens will help protect your mucous membranes. You should also include pungent foods like garlic, ginger, radishes, and orange vegetables like pumpkin, squash and carrots.

Acupuncture can also help you with seasonal adjustments by boosting your immune system, and helping to reduce the effects of stress.
