Spring Asthenia: Symptoms and treatments

Written on May 10, 2018 by Campus Life in Other Activities

The word “asthenia” comes from the Greek and it means “no force”. Spring asthenia is characterized by a general feeling of weakness and lack of energy which come when the spring arrives.

The factors that determine spring asthenia are several: on one hand our body must adapt to the new conditions of luminosity and temperature, also changes in humidity and atmospheric pressure, as well as changes in the hour cycle. All these circumstances induce human body to a series of mechanisms that alter the regulation of circadian rhythms, by changing the certain hormones: endorphins, cortisol, melatonin, etc. Such hormonal changes cause an alteration of biological rhythms, which must adapt to new environmental conditions.

Spring asthenia symptoms

• Unjustified sadness
• Irritability and anxiety
• Difficulty concentrating
• Low appetite
• Headaches
• Apathy
• Exhaustion
• Muscle aches
• Low blood pressure

Remedies for spring asthenia.

Even if asthenia goes away by itself after a few weeks, when our body finally adapts to the new season, there are some ways to speed up the process and prevent most of the symptoms.

The easiest way to influence spring asthenia is our diet plan – this should include foods high in vitamin C and E, magnesium, iron and calcium. Therefore, a spring diet should include raw fruits and vegetables, nuts such as peanuts or almonds, fish and seafood, as well as a balanced dose of dairy products. Try to stay well hydrated and replace coffee with green or ginseng tea, in order to stimulate vitality and reduce stress.
