If you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder or just feel blah when one gray day follows another, there are some simple things that may lift the oppression.
Quercetin with Bromelain is a supplement that is reputed to help “manage seasonal discomfort”. My experience with this bioflavonoid comes from a mystery shop I did involving FRS. FRS is an energy supplement that relies on Quercetin to supply energy and boost the immune system. My son and I both felt a marked improvement during my trial with it and I began ordering it monthly. Then, I discovered Quercetin in capsule form is much cheaper and yields the same results.
Raw apple cider vinegar mixed with honey and water is a day brightener with a pleasant taste. Not only does it pick me up when my energy level drops, it relieves my arthritis pain.
1 Tablespoon raw vinegar
1 Tablespoon honey
8 oz of water
Light therapy is an important part of my life during the winter. Sitting in the light for 15-20 minutes a day alleviates much of the depression I experience during this season devoid of sunlight. My light also has an ionizer that I use even though the air coming from it does smell funny.
Seasonal Affective Disorder causes me to have no energy, feel depressed and sleep too much. To beat this, I have a daily routine. Each morning I fix a glass of vinegar and honey, take 2 Quercetin and sit in the light while I read email. I drink vinegar and honey again in the early afternoon. I’m lucky that these easy things work for me; some people need medication.
