Losing Those Summertime Blues

Published on 7/2/2011

There is an old song with the lyrics, "There ain't no cure for the summertime blues." Now, the grammar may be atrocious, but the song recognizes a particular type of the "blues" that hit many during the summer months. Let's talk about what it is and how we may actually be able to find a cure for the summertime blues! SAD A condition associated with wintertime is called SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder (affecting our emotions in this case). People experience SAD when they don't get enough sunshine. The remedy is pretty simple: more sunlight. Nutrients that can help with SAD during wintertime include Vitamin B-12, Vitamin D and the herbal adaptogens, especially Rhodiola rosea. Summertime blues may often happen for a similar reason: too little sunlight. We discovered a particularly severe cluster of people suffering with SAD in developing lands of the Middle East. It seems that the heat is so intense during the summer months that people spend long hours, days, weeks, even months indoors without ever seeing the sun. No sunshine during any season produces SAD. With most of us living and working indoors these days, we may be disposed to SAD even though the cure is right outside our door! Help for the blues Sleep Essential #3 of the 10 Essentials for Health and Wellness is "Sleep Peacefully." A good night's sleep actually begins with at least 20 minutes of early morning sunlight. Many healthcare providers recommend an hour or more of early morning sunshine, both as a launching pad for peaceful sleep and as a "cure for the blues" – summertime or wintertime! Vitamin B-12 As mentioned, Vitamin B-12 can assist in many cases because it nourishes the nerves and brain. TriVita's Sublingual B-12 is highly and quickly absorbed. And if allergies are keeping you inside during summer months, consider Super Sublingual B-12. It contains three times the amount of B-12 as our regular B, and many people have reported allergy relief after a short time taking it. Vitamin C Speaking of allergies, the ascorbate in Vital C helps break down the histamines that are triggered by allergies. Use the Vital C Flush to determine your maximum daily portion of Vital C and add it to your arsenal of protection from allergies. Vital C also helps support the immune system, detoxify your body and support collagen production in your skin to keep it healthy and protected from too much sun. Vitamin D Since the nerves and brain also contain Vitamin D receptors – Vitamin D is the "sunshine vitamin" – we may also benefit from supplementing with TriVita's Essential D. This is especially true if we are plagued with chronic pain: any kind of pain, anywhere in the body (but especially in the low back) may signal that we have a low level of Vitamin D. Adaptogens As mentioned above, the adaptogens really help lift the spirits. This is especially true of the adaptogen Rhodiola rosea. In previous Weekly Wellness Reports, I have discussed the power of this adaptogen in restoring balance to a brain distressed by chemical imbalances. That's what adaptogens do: they restore balance. Consider them as a tool to help restore balance anytime you experience emotional distress. Exercise By far the best "medication" a person can take for the blues is exercise. Oh, if only we could get the benefits of exercise in a pill! I guarantee it would be the best-selling drug in history! According to the Mayo Clinic, the number one benefit of exercise is that it lifts your mood. It also gives you more energy and promotes better sleep. Exercise is essential for health and wellness. As you progressively define your purpose in life, you will discover that great purposes require great health. Great health cannot be achieved without exercise, so take your medicine! The "cure"? So, perhaps this really is a "cure" for the summertime blues – appropriate nutrients and nurturing. Make it your goal to get some early morning sunshine and exercise, to sleep peacefully at night and give your body the nutrients it needs to support health and wellness every day.
