The weather in spring is extremely changeable with large temperature differences. It is often humid, warm and windy - ideal climate for the development and transmission of pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. If our immune system is not strong enough, our body is more susceptible to various diseases.
According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the external pathogenic factor (pathogen) is the wind in spring. The wind moves and changes constantly and carries the pathogens everywhere.
Excessive liver function, which is often the case in spring, causes irritability, mood swings, difficulty concentrating and the famous spring tiredness.
"The great art of a doctor is to treat an illness before it has even broken out," says the TCM teaching. If there is enough positive energy (Yang-Qi), the pathogenic factors cannot attack the body.
