Medicine: I’ve been trying to fight this nasty cold that I have with “natural” remedies (i.e. green tea, fruits, veggies) for the past two-and-a-half days. Unfortunately, even though whole foods and herbs have plenty of vitamins and antioxidants, whatever it is that is attacking my immune system does not seem to care because it’s still making me feel like I got hit by a truck. So, today I caved, made a doctors appointment, and then gladly accepted the antibiotics prescribed to me. And now that those are in my system (hopefully hard at work killing bacteria!), it’s time for some organic chicken soup!
