What's in YOUR medicine cup?
Vitamins and supplements

It's possible to not have a single infection (because you take H2O2, for example) and still not enjoy optimal health. It's similar to the way gasoline can make your car go—up to a point—without oil; the ride will be rough and likely come to an abrupt and premature end. Similarly, without the support of minerals and vitamins, you may be subject to a myriad of aches and pains and general dis-ease that no antibiotic can cure.

While I wouldn't presume to tell you, dear reader, what you should be taking (you should visit your naturopathic doctor for that), I can tell you what I take, and why.

Do be aware that vitamins, minerals, herbs and any other supplements you might take, are not candy. They can interact with pharmaceuticals you might be taking; they have powerful biochemical effects and can be overdosed. When you take your own health into your own hands, you assume the risks as well as the responsibility and benefits.

How to avoid the flu, or treat it if you get it anyway!

It's that time of year again, when my friends start noticing that I don't have the flu and they do. The only reason they don't beat me up is that they are too miserable to move. The main reason they want to beat me up, isn't that I don't have the flu but that I have been telling them for years how they can avoid getting it, too. But they don't listen, and then I spend the entire duration of their illness telling them, "I told you so! But you never listen!"
