“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” (‘Father of Modern Medicine’ Hippocrates in about 400 BC)

Don’t let colds and the flu knock you for a six this winter.  Particularly if you run your own small business, every day in a sick bed is a day of opportunity lost forever!

“The 15 Best Foods to Eat When You’re Sick” from AuthorityNutrition sets out some of the science behind Hippocrates’ sage and ancient advice.
