Good to know.
Thanks for sharing
and what about https://www.turkiye-eczane.com/
Awesome...thanks! I need to practice self care!!!
Thanks for the tips.
Thanks, good tips.
I have been blessed. I am in my 60s and have never had the flu.
Great information, needed this when I caught the flu last winter and landed in the hospital with complications with my diabetes
Got the flu 6 days ago and decided right away that I wasn't even going to try to track my food,much less exercise. Read this article today, and it seems like I made the right choice! I'm feeling better now and back to tracking.
Good article overall.
Immodium is a drug that actively slows the bowel, and is not a good idea for diarrhea unless you KNOW that you don't have a bacterial or parasitic cause for diarrhea, as slowing the gut can raise one's risk for complications with some types of infections.
BRAT diet for digestive problems: bananas, rice, applesauce, toast.
Pretzels and ginger ale when I have a fever.
Sometimes chicken noodle soup is attractive--maybe the salt. I try to keep such foods on hand. No one wants to go grocery shopping when they are sick!
Great Article i wish i could have read this 3 months ago when i had had an ongoing asthma/cold/chest infection
