ground­ing and moist­en­ing foods. Soups and stews re­quire longer cook­ing times, mak­ing them warm­ing and eas­ier to di­gest – a re­lief for clogged up bow­els. Root veg­eta­bles such as car­rots and sweet potato syn­chro­nise us with the in­ward and down­ward en­ergy that pro­pels us from warmer months to­wards win­ter, as do healthy pro­teins such as legumes, eggs, and or­ganic meats. A de­li­cious bone broth cou­pled with sweet potato, cab­bage, radishes, onions, gar­lic and warm­ing spices such as ginger and chilli would make a won­der­fully nour­ish­ing au­tumn meal.

boost­ing sup­ple­ments. A high dosage vi­ta­min C plus zinc, but for zinc it’s best to speak with a health prac­ti­tioner be­fore sup­ple­ment­ing as tak­ing big doses of zinc when there is no un­der­ly­ing de­fi­ciency can cre­ate im­bal­ances. Ideally you would also eat foods nat­u­rally high in th­ese mi­cronu­tri­ents, such as eggs and or­ange fruits and veg­eta­bles (vi­ta­min A), lots of colour­ful fruits and veg­eta­bles (vi­ta­min C), and nuts, beans, oys­ters, whole grains, and seeds (vi­ta­min E and zinc).

cit­rate to re­lieve con­sti­pa­tion (which tra­di­tional prac­ti­tion­ers would say is a man­i­fes­ta­tion of dryness in the large colon). It is safe in mod­er­a­tion, even for young chil­dren. It can be pur­chased in pow­der form and mixed into a glass of wa­ter. Need­less to say, stay­ing hy­drated with plenty of pure wa­ter will also help re­lieve con­sti­pa­tion.
