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.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

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…
