the season of rebirth
Us and Nature
We are intimately connected to Nature, whether we-
The observation of the close connection between natural cycles and human physiology seems to belong more to traditional therapies, so-
The secret to determining precisely these optimal times lies in the careful observation of the relationship between natural cycles and human physiological cycles. S-
For example, the best time of day to eat a hearty meal is midday. This is when the body is most ready to digest and process food. It actually corresponds to a maximum of activity in nature, which is reflected in
A time for everything
So there is a time for everything, as the sages used to say.
There is a time to sow and a time to reap, a time to work and a time to rest, a time to solve complicated problems and a time to dream. There is even a time when you can get sick, which is when you choose to act in contradiction to Nature, and another when you can heal, which is when you choose to integrate yourself back into the harmony of Nature. With this in mind, we propose to continue discovering together the mysteries of spring, starting from the careful observation of all that happens naturally in Nature at this time of year and linking these observations with the physiological cycles of the body.
Spring is the season of rebirth par excellence. It is the time when everything that is
Many of us know that in order to allow seedlings to fully develop, the earwigs must be cleared of all dry or rotten debris just before sowing. On fields left to chance, the grass will turn green much later than the wheat in the cleaned and tended field.
As we can see, spring teaches us that in order to have rich fruit in autumn, it is necessary to clean and fertilise the garden now. If Nature needs this purification to be reborn in all its fullness, it means that our body also reflects this need that arises during spring.
Therefore, the most natural way to cleanse our body during this season of purification and rebirth is still the "everyday" food, chosen wisely. In
Just after the snow melts, before the buds open, we receive Nature's earliest and most effective purifying agent: tree sap. The most recognised for this is birch sap (Betula sp.). The Mastecs tell us of their power by their very appearance. The white colour of the bark that covers them makes us think of purity and its smoothness inspires freshness.
Birch sap can only be collected at this time of year, before the budding, because only now is it sufficiently fluid. It has extraordinary purifying and regenerating virtues and can be consumed by anyone, healthy or sick, precisely to drain all the waste accumulated during the year in the body. It is particularly useful for those suffering from various conditions such as: dermatitis and chronic eczema, constipation, rheumatism, arthritis, chronic kidney disease, cellulitis, hypertension and even various benign or malignant tumours. In all these chronic or degenerative diseases there are large accumulations of toxins in the body, often collected in
Another gift of spring, known and appreciated by many are young nettles (Urtica dioica), rich in vitamins, useful in anaemia, diabetes, obesity, renal lithiasis, rheumatism, gout, chronic eczema, liver, spleen, bile, colitis, ulcers, pulmonary congestion, tumours.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) are among the first flowers we enjoy in spring. Its leaves can be added to salads, along with the leaves of other spring plants: young leaves of shepherd's hutch (Capsella bursa pastoris), from cuckoo's nest (Primula veris), from chicory (Cichorium intybus), roundabout (Glechoma hederacea), salad (Lettuce sativa), spinach (Spinacia oleracea), fumitory (Fumaria officinalis), creson (Lepidium sativum), năsturel (Nasturtium officinale), hrean (Armoracia rusticana), lure (Allium ursinum), garlic (Alliaria officinalis), lobodas (Chenopodium sp.), donkey (Rumex acetosa), donkey-
All of these can be used as part of spring cures, alone or in combination, as salads or juices made from leaves blended in a blender with spring water. We can use them all, for preventive purification purposes or choose from them those plants that have therapeutic effects especially in certain diseases we suffer from.
The gift of spring
But what is the mystical gift of spring for those who understand the necessity of the depurative cures carried out during this period? It is undoubtedly rebirth. Spring culminates for Christians with the most important feast of the year: the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who and-
