Dr. Todd, It’s November (ie, Cold & Flu Season) and I feel like crud. What can I do to get over this?

Yes. As it is #COLDandFLU Season, I get the above question quite a lot lately.

One of the main things that we should be doing other than getting our spine adjusted, getting proper rest, eating clean and drinking our Kombucha is to be taking the appropriate supplements and herbs to support our immune system during this time of the year.

So I recently had the honor and privilege of getting together with a whole food nutrition and herb guru from right here in central IL. I interviewed her about 2 supplements (1 an herb, 1 a whole food complex) which support or modulate the immune system. The truth is that you’d be asking for trouble by not taking these 2 supplements this time of year where we are definitely experiencing winter weather in Illinois.

Dear Dr. Todd, I tend to be an EMOTIONAL EATER. What advice can you offer me?

[The title of this post is a question that I received via email (at draustin@royell.net) from Eileen.]

Hi Eileen,

That’s a great question! I’m aware of folks who eat because they are bored, sad, upset, happy, etc. Of course WE only NEED to EAT when we are actually HUNGRY.

To shed more light on the topic of EMOTIONAL EATING, I took my traveling video blog called “THE DOCTOR TODD SHOW” on location to VIVACIOUS WELLNESS in Springfield, IL. Janet C. knows a thing or two about EMOTIONAL EATING. So let’s hear what she has to say, shall we?

Thank you for the awesome question, Eileen! And thank you for the incredible information, Janet!!!

Yours in health,
