There was a report recently about vitamin D, the "sun" vitamin  and the the lack of ths vitamin and how it relates to various auto immune disease....we all write to this forum about what we try to do to keep our bodies working....the fault lies not with ur bodies but with the messages that are being sent by our brains! I would like to see how many of us come from a cold, dark winter place, the northeat United States or the always raining northwest...how many of us spent november to march bundles up?.....
 
this is Dennis in the lowest rated region for sunshine, in the country, central New York
It seemed like a good idea at the time

Sorry Dennis I don't fit your profile. I'm from sunny, hot, Savannah, GA and I've had IBS for 30+ years.

I personally feel better when it's cold, rainy and most especially, winter. Probably because I'm A. a homebody, B. I love to bake and make comfort type meals (pot roast, etc.) and C. enjoy relaxing, watching TV, reading, etc.

This specific type weather reduces stress for me. Go figure!

Heat, sunshine, Summer, the abundance of fresh produce that is hard to resist and the faster pace this current season brings, wreaks havoc on my gut!

To Mary..

I feel better during the winter and fall....fall in upstate NY is absolutely unbelievable....colors on the trees, apples and more apple festivals..there is even a maple syrup place...makes his own...back to IBS

the heat, humidity especially, will turn my IBS-C to IBS-D for a while...in a sense almost relief!

I think part of the appeal of Fall and Winter are they are quieter seasons. The pace just slows down (except around the holidays, LOL). People are more content to stay indoors, etc.

Funny story to share.....I live in Cincinnati, OH and our next door neighbors had moved here from CA. They missed the weather in CA the most. That following December the wife told me how sad she was it was the shortest day of the year (winter solstice). Meanwhile, I just stared at her and said I loved it when it got dark by 5 pm! She thought I was so odd to say that......so each time it snowed, she'd sigh and then say - oh that's right, you love winter......tis true though, when it gets cold and snows, for some reason I just feel better.

I should just move to Alaska.....not really but Summer truly is my least favorite time of the year.

Anyway, I have heard it is so beautiful up east in the Fall. Haven't had the pleasure of visiting then except one quick weekend in NYC back in 1994, during the month of October. We didn't even leave Manhattan so I saw nary a tree except in Central Park....it was beautiful though. I would love to really visit upstate NY, Vermont, Maine properly, in the Fall.

Funny how seasons wreak havoc on us too. Not just diet and/or stress.
