How to Kick Out FLU with Zero Antibiotics

www.clipartsheep.com
When the weather changes, viruses are on the go. They're active in the air. And once you "catch" them accidentally, you start feeling sick. I don't know how one "catches" them exactly, but that's how they put it. You catch flu.

Well, then just play a game of football. If you happen to catch the virus, kick it away as far as possible, even beyond the home goal. No, even beyond the stadium. Kick it out of your life! How do you do this? I found a way of doing so without having to take antibiotics.

But before you try this at home, consult your doctor first. Okay?

In my case, I've grown tired of taking antibiotics when I have flu and severe colds and cough. Taking antibiotics kills both good and bad bacteria in your stomach. Some doctors make you take it to get rid of the bacteria in your lungs or throat that trigger the severe cold and cough.

The flu virus simply takes care of itself. Viral diseases are self-limiting. They stay active in your body only for a limited time and then disappear--or transfer--after your immune system has finally managed to combat it. Antibiotics don;t kill viruses. They kill bacteria.

So, to get rid of cold and cough especially during a flu, what I do are the following:
  • Take sodium ascorbate regularly. I take it 2 to 3 times a day.
  • Take lots of water. A tall glass of it per hour.
  • Take fresh fruit juice like kalamansi.
  • Take ginger and/or turmeric ale now and then.
  • Gargle with warm water and vinegar (better if organic vinegar).
  • Take natural health supplements. I take mangosteen supplements.
  • Eat fresh fruits. 
The cold and cough last only about 2 or 3 days and then you start breathing normally again. The runny nose stops. The cough minimizes. The fever subsides and then stops--bacteria from thick phlegm can aggravate fever. 

Without taking synthetic antibiotics, you save the good bacteria in your tummy. Remember, good bacteria in your tummy aids healthy digestive system. Your immune system depends on it some 70 percent.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
