Well, the first part of October was an exquisite mix of the weirdest weather, and when you throw in the likes of the Grand Ledge Marching Band Festival in totally drenching rain and Color Cruise in very cool weather along with a couple of really HOT, muggy days….. the old wives tales of the weather is responsible for all the hacking and sniffling come roaring out the closet.
Please, Please let’s understand that colds and sniffles are fundamentally caused by an out of balance diet, coupled with stress that allows the body’s immune system to be vulnerable to opportunistic bugs that are floating around year round waiting for a weakness to create a space for them to attack.
I know the media is currently agog with news about the new flu’ season and the need to get vaccinated. But honestly, if you get checked to keep your spine in line, eat your veggies and fruit (and lots of them), reduce sugar, eliminate sodas, and DECREASE your stress levels and INCREASE your exercise— you have a great chance to come out unscathed at the end of winter.
SEE YOU IN THE OFFICE, ON THE TABLE, ON THE MAT OR UNDER THE BAR! (weights that is!)
