Winter and Senility

The climate conditions of winter are highly favorable for the development of all kinds of weakness and tendencies to organic disease (brain/heart/blood vessels/kidneys/liver).

Defects in these organs manifest themselves most frequently and severely in cold weather. The whole constitution is lowered by the conditions of winter, and, to an extent devitalized.

The aged must be helped by the provision of heating apparatuses.


Folgendes hat anthroposofische Einschlüsse

[Mary Kelly Sutton, M.D.]

Aging brings a shift of life forces away from the physical body towards the finer structures of the human makeup. Sensibilities, wisdom, character and judgment all can grow richer, gifted with decades of experience, as this shift occurs. In ancient Rome one had to be sixty to be considered for the Senate. A British lady I knew said every woman should return to university at menopause since new mental capacities open up at this time of life.

These are important things to consider, given our cultural fixation on youth. We must know that age has value to human development, and that the lesser physical strength or skin tone one experiences

with passing decades is not an overall decline but a shift of focus - for good reason.

How then, practically speaking, can we support our physical temple, slightly vacated by the life forces at this time of life? How can new spiritual strengths, developed with the years, remain integrated with the physical body?

R.S. spoke of the value of birch leaf tea, 2 cups daily, to everyone over 35 years of age. The tendency with age is to harden physically, to deposit minerals in ordinarily flexible places (joints and blood vessels), degenerative arthritis (osteoarthritis) and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerotic vascular disease). Birch tea gives people the capacity to maintain flexibility in these areas, and therefore has 'anti-aging' properties. The leaves of the white birch can be harvested when ½ - 1" in diameter/w. Taken in larger amounts than 2 cups daily, birch leaf tea can relieve mild arthritic pain.

Note: it is bitter if brewed too long.

While arteries and joints tend to harden, bones often lose calcium (women in the first 2 years after menopause). Calcium sources: greens, fermented dairy products (yogurt, kefir, quark, cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, buttermilk). Each serving of either group supplies about 300 mg. of calcium, so 3-5 servings per day is a good target.

Exercise promotes sound bones, good circulation and flexible joints. It raises metabolism slightly for several hours after the exercise. Using the body is a wonderful way to keep it vital, (enjoyable exercise and brings us into the beauty of nature).

Digestion is not always as vital with age. If hydrochloric acid is lacking in the stomach, nutrients are not available no matter what one eats! Lactic acid foods (fermented dairy products, sauerkraut and sourdough bread or pancakes) support stomach digestion, and the good bacteria of the colon. Lactic acid also feeds the liver, whose basic health is fundamental at all ages. Sauerkraut juice, 1-2 ounces just before the meal is excellent. Other acid sources, though not as highly recommended, are ½ tsp. of vinegar in a little water, or HCl-Pepsin tablets from the health food store.

Bitters (Gentian tonic or Amara drops) enliven the entire digestive process, both the acid and enzyme production, and are ideally taken 30 minutes before a meal.

Remember: heavy food (protein and fats) early in the day, and light food at supper is a sound habit for promoting good digestion and sound sleep.

Digestive disturbances not remedied by such simple methods, as well as any symptom of ill health, require a visit with the doctor. A general physical exam and lab work to know if any risk factors exist, such as elevated cholesterol or low thyroid, are worthwhile. Anthroposophic treatments address such abnormalities gently, ordinarily without side effects, and are of value.

Warmth is a sign of a strong immune system. It is common to see adults with lower than normal (98.6° F) body temperature. Protect the warmth your body does generate with adequate clothing in layers, recognizing the value of wool as good insulation that still lets the body breathe. Put the hot water bottle to use at the feet at night, or wherever a touch of comfort is needed. Use warming herbs in cooking, such as cayenne and ginger.
