Last week, we talked about nutrition when you have a cold or other respiratory virus. But what about treatments? How well do over-the-counter medicines work, especially when it comes to relieving stuffiness and congestion?
Bodywork: Should you feed a cold and starve a fever?
With the many respiratory viruses going around, I’m reminded of an old adage: Feed a cold and starve a fever. Does this time-worn advice hold true?
Bodywork: Can it be too cold to exercise?
I recently returned from Minnesota, where the mercury dipped into the single digits, and winds made it feel even chillier. Can it be too frigid to exercise, or did I just find a convenient excuse?
Bodywork: Can exercise compromise the immune system?
Can exercise — and especially long and intense sessions — compromise our immune systems?
Bodywork: Was it Covid – or something else?
I spent the better part of last week at home with what I would describe as prototypical Covid symptoms, yet each time I tested, I came back negative. What gives?
Bodywork: Are cold hands cause for alarm?
