It’s cold and flu season in America. You know, those nasty little viruses lurking around for new victims. Just imagine, how many opportunities you have to be the next person to suffer.
Dr. Issac Eliaz, an integrative medicine practitioner with over 25 years experience, has an interesting perspective about how you should handle a cold.
He believes that is you already have a cold, you should “let yourself be sick”. That’s right, rather than getting an OTC medication which only relieves symptoms, just “let it be”.
Dr. Eliaz feels that you don’t allow yourself enough rest and live with too much stress, resulting in an overburdened immune system. Resting a few days will allow your immune system to naturally adjust, resulting in a renewed body once the cold has passed.
Check out his video below, which includes ideas on how to prevent colds:
The most intriguing idea from his video, is his belief in the power of organic medicinal mushrooms to strengthen your immune system. Dr. Eliaz thinks these mushrooms can actually train your immune system to better defend you against colds and other illnesses.
The Bottom Line: I believe there’s merit to Dr. Eliaz’s thoughts. I’ve been around co-workers, friends, family, and members of the public, all of whom continued to walk around spreading their colds to others. Here’s a radical idea, just stay home if you have a cold.
Have you had your mushrooms today?
It’s your life, live well.
