You're late for work, haven't taken a shower and still need to get the kids to school. Time for a "healthy, balanced" breakfast in the midst of chaos? Oh, sure! On a pressure-cooker morning, even the most nutrition-conscious person can skip food. But if you do, you undermine your mind/body health, your sense of well-being, even your job performance.
Research shows that our overall health starts—or stalls out—in the gut. In the spirit of the New Year, why not consider a tune-up for your “digestive engine”? You’ll feel better, likely gain energy, reduce risks for some diseases, and probably even drop a few pounds.
Colds are a fact of life every winter but that doesn?t mean you can?t take some precautions (and save some of your sick days for spring fever). A cold is a virus, so antibiotics can?t conquer it?they only work against bacterial infections?but you can shorten the misery and avoid spreading it to those around you.
