You may recognize that as a quotation attributed to Hippocrates. I happen to think he had the right idea! By choosing the highest quality foods and keeping your body strong and well-nourished, you can avoid many (or all) of the nasty germs and viruses we are surrounded and bombarded with daily!
Especially at this time of year which is cold and flu season. This article talks about some of the author’s favorite super foods to boost your immune system. I agree with all his choices. One way I specifically include the garlic, which I mention in my Natural First Aid Kit e-book, is to make it into a virus killing condiment! I learned the recipe from Dr. Richard Schulze and have used it for years! I also share my favorite chicken soup recipe. It is powerful medicine if you do come down with a nasty bug, but you can also enjoy it while you are healthy in order to stay that way!
I just wanted to encourage you to get back to basics and first make food your medicine of choice and when you need some extra help, look to the natural supplements that are effective and don’t have the nasty side effects of drugs.
