I agree... I do believe that it has a lot to do with the time of year [season].
For me as well my health seems to go 'down hill' in the fall & winter mths. with CD.
Even my GI says they are more busy during these times.
I think it is vit. D. In the summer we get more from the sun and people are generally more happy with sunshine & nice warm weather.
I always take my vit. D regular as clock work. [pill form 3000 UI]
It is important for us to get out of that 'slump' we always seem to fall into when the colder weather comes.
Keeping active & getting outdoors [fresh air] is important for your over all heath.
