One of my favorite things about the way I was brought up is that, in our house, we didn’t often rely on traditional medicine. My parents really valued homeopathic remedies and healing food over medicine, and I can’t remember many times at all that we would take pills or a syrup when we didn’t feel…

You all, I am not playing with the sniffles. It’s that exciting time of year where germs are everywhere, our bodies are weakened (or at least they feel weakened?), and everyone is getting sick!
