Key Takeaways:

  • When you’re ill, you double down on what you eat in a positive sense.
  • The intelligent thing to do when you’re sick is to go to bed.
  • If you really are ill, the responsible thing to do is to be at home, in bed, and not spreading the virus about.
  • An Epsom salt bath is really good for detoxification. It has sleep-enhancing properties and is really good for easing the body.
  • Raw garlic can be very good when you’ve got a cough or cold or a chest infection. It’s quite a good prebiotic.

Action Steps:

  • Eat well, especially when you’re sick. Give your body all the nourishment it needs to fight off infection.

  • Get total bed rest to help your body and support your immune system.
