The season of nasty colds, ugly flu viruses and winter allergies is upon us. Coughing, chest congestion, itching and achiness conspire to make us miserable. Television, magazine ads and conventional medicine have taught us to rush to the drugstore and load up on cough syrups and drops, pills for congestion,itching, sniffling and sneezing, medicines to help us sleep and ones to keep us awake.
Of course, if you are sick and not getting better you should visit your doctor, but there are also many ways to combat (and even prevent!) these illnesses naturally. In this episode we discuss the beneficial healing properties of herbs, spices and certain foods. We also go over best practices to follow when you are sick as well as things you can do to help keep your immune system in tip-top shape to fight viruses and allergies when they attack.
