I don’t catch colds. I haven’t had a cold in at least 15 years, whereas I used to get them 3 or 4 times every winter. Bad ones. Then years ago, an alternative healthcare provider told me, ‘Don’t medicate a cold. Let your immune system do its job without interfering.’
I took his advice. It was miserable at first because I took absolutely nothing, just drank a lot of hot tea with lemon. But I stopped getting sick so frequently. Eventually I stopped catching colds altogether.
There might be more to it than that, but I’m not aware of anything else I do or don’t do. Does anyone else “beat” colds by simply not getting them?-Important concept: do nothing.The post New and Noteworthy: What I Read This Week — Edition 163 appeared first on Mark’s Daily Apple
