Your Body Gets Ready for Winter

Between October and November your body gets ready for the winter season.

The weather is cold at night and in the morning, but the rest of the day is hot. It seems that this happens every October until the beginning of November. The name for this is Indian Summer.

Indian Summer got its name from the Indians who would raid settlers in late October when the weather was very hot. Once the night weather would turn cold, the raids would stop. We are going into October and it’s hot during the day and cold at night, which indicates that we are heading into Indian Summer.

Another sign of Indian Summer is the colorful mornings and sunsets on the West Coast; in October until early November in the San Francisco Bay Area. After the first rain of the season, Indian Summer disappears and our winter sets in. Around this time, on October 31, we also celebrate the holiday of Halloween and the end of the summer harvest.

Indian Summer, changing weather patterns, the end of the summer harvest and the winter rains getting closer can play havoc with the human body — coughing, colds, pain and aches, sleepless nights and just plain tiredness. The question is, how do you handle these problems of nature?

The best way that has been proven is by getting a good night’s sleep, a good slug of honey in a glass of heated milk and a good dinner at night. Don’t ask me how this works at this time of the year, with these problems, but it just does.

After several weeks into November, you'll feel better and you are ready for the coming winter.
