I spent much of my childhood sick. Growing up I was constantly missing school due to some cold or cough or tonsillitis or something of the sort. Once I got into high school I got bronchitis every year, without fail. I assumed I just had a weak immune system and was doomed to be a sick little thing my whole life. Then I moved to Chicago. I assumed the terrible cold and wind would further weaken my immune system and that I would get sick even more often. But something awesome happened during my year there- I didn't get sick once. I was shocked when, during the height of cold and flu season, I was one of the few people in my office who didn't get sick. I attribute this to just a few simple lifestyle changes I made. Since then I've learned a few more tips for staying healthy (naturally!) even in the thick of winter. I figured I'd do a little series here to share the things I've learned.
Please keep in mind that I am NOT a doctor and I have NO medical training whatsoever. The tips you will find in this series are all natural, but I feel the need to add that I am, in fact, a supporter of Western medicine and I believe you should always check with your doctor before making any big changes to your diet/ supplement intake/ health routine, etc.
Okay, now that that's out of the way... I have a feeling this first one is going to make you roll your eyes and make half of you close your browser but hear me out.
What are some natural ways that you stay healthy? I'd love to hear!
