Thank you for the info.
Thanks for the article
Take your medicine as prescribed. Finish the full course of pills or whatever.
Thanks, good need-to-know information!
People (not this article!) make such a HUGE issue over the flu shot. For the record, I've NEVER had a flu shot & it's been 24 years since I last had a case of the flu. Much to-do about NOTHING! And completely blown out of proportion.
FACT: everybody is going to die some time
FACT: a flu shot isn't going to "cure" that!
Thanks for the tips.
A “boosted” immune system is not always a blessing. Some people’s immune systems have almost killed them. It’s our immune reactions that make rashes, blisters, etc. so damn unpleasant.
I rarely get cold sores anymore, but I eat and sleep well now and don’t over-stress my mind. I’m pretty sure I haven’t boosted my immune system. I’ve just removed the conditions under which I usually got cold sores.
2008 article. Mostly common sense, but probably even more scientific evidence that what you eat and when you eat it matters. Now "gut health" is being emphasized.
Thank you for such a well-informed article. And since 1990 I've taken it upon myself to toast the "Broccoli Farmers of Texas" with every helping, whether privately or publically.
I consider it my patriotic duty actually, all things considered. I'm also a Monty Python fan though.
