Autumn Immune Reset

Simple Steps To An Immune Reset

What to do now to prepare for a healthy fall.

In Chinese medicine, late August and September marks the “fifth season” or “late summer.” Unlike the other traditional seasons, late summer is more of a transitional period rather than a full season itself.

Still, this transition is incredibly important for our mental and physical health. During this transition, you have the chance to build up your resilience and preserve your energy for the fall and winter seasons ahead.

That means that right now is the best time to prepare your mind and body for fall. When you do, you’ll set yourself up to stay healthy through the rest of the year!

Here are a few simple tips to try now – in late summer – to have a healthier fall season:

Now is the best time to prepare your mind and body for fall.

Set yourself up to stay healthy through the rest of the year

Refresh your diet.

Boosting your immune system and energy naturally starts in the gut. Eat a rainbow of fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean proteins, healthy fats, and probiotics. But, instead of salads, transition into slightly warm dishes like stir-fries and coups.

Enjoy Elderberries.

Elderberries are perfect for back-to-school time and boosting immunity in the fall. They are one of nature’s most powerful immune-boosting herbs as they are extremely high in antioxidants and vitamin C. Elderberries have even been proven to shorten the length and reduce the intensity of colds. Get all your elderberry benefits through gummies, and other products available at On-Point Health & Wellness in Beckley WV.

Visit the Salt Room.

The Salt Cave isn’t just for relaxation! Halotherapy benefits the lungs, skin, and immune system to fight issues like allergies, asthma, upper respiratory infections, dry skin, and more. Plus, a visit to our cozy cave is the perfect way to de-stress after a long day!

Let go of that which does not deserve you.

Just like the leaves fall to make way for restoration and new life in spring, fall is the time to release to make room in our lives, too. Whether it’s the candy in the cupboard, a toxic friendship, or the old clothes in your closet, now is a great time to release things that are holding you back.

Get acupuncture.

If it has been a while since your last acupuncture visit, now is a great time for a reset. At the change of seasons, especially from summer to fall, our bodies are slightly more vulnerable than usual. This leaves us susceptible to illness and drains our energy.  Acupuncture can help give you the boost you need to thrive through this transition for a healthy, balanced fall.
