Natural Remedies for Cold & Flu

I came across this article in PALEO Magazine and wanted to share in hopes of opening your eyes to natural solutions to help during cold and flu season.

Most of us have been trained to take products like DayQuil, NyQuil, Tylenol, Theraflu, etc. to help with your cold.  The bottom line is these products do not get to the root cause of your problems.

The article goes into detail for each of the 10 natural remedies to help you with colds and flu.

1. Lifestyle: Nutrition & Rest
2. Probiotics
3. Vitamin C
4. Vitamin A
5. Apple Cider Vinegar
6. Garlic
7. Sweat
8. Echinacea
9. Ginger Root

MEAT AND HUMANS: A HISTORY

This is one of the better articles I have read of late on the topic of eating meat.  The author does a great job laying out the history of our human ancestors and how we evolved over time to eat meat.  He talks not only about how meat consumption helped us physically, but it also helped us to develop culturally.  He then goes into three different options to consider for the path forward.  These options are very relevant in our society today.

  • OPTION ONE: stop eating meat
  • OPTION TWO: lab-grown meat
  • OPTION THREE: regenerative grazing

No matter whether or not you eat meat, this is something worthy of your time.  You will definitely learn something new.  For the non-meat eaters, you may even be surprised by a thing or two.

10 Ways to Make Movement Part of Your Daily Routine

I read this article in my current issue of PALEO Magazine.  The article speaks directly to what I did for so many years, which was to run on the treadmill once per day for 30-45 minutes and then not worry about the rest of the day.  I have changed my routine drastically over the last few years as a result of what I’ve learned.

In a study looking at minimal-intensity physical activity, researchers concluded that “one hour of daily physical exercise cannot compensate for the negative effects of inactivity on insulin level and plasma lipids if the rest of the day is spent sitting. Reducing inactivity by increasing the time spent walking/standing is more effective than one hour of physical exercise, when energy expenditure is kept constant.”

Don’t over complicate how you incorporate movement into your day.  Read the short article and learn how you can start making subtle changes today that will absolutely make a difference!!
