Studies on adults are mixed but studies on children, says Dr. Greger, shows less common colds, ear infections and less illness in general. Maybe its the child’s infinite love and positive outlook. Pets may be making them happier and their fore healthier. If you are thinking about getting a pet for your child, it might just pay for itself in improved health and less doctor visits. They may even be lowering the child’s stress levels.

Afraid of getting a cold? Gargle!

Dr Greger says proper gargling will stop sore throats. Gargling may also prevent the common cold but not the flu. So keep up your gargling and help lessen the amount of colds you will get. Gargling with green tea may even be more effective!

Pathogen

We all know from modern physics that if someone pushed on us we have to push back with and equal and opposite force or we will fall. If we take a walk in a high wind we need to push against that wind to maintain our posture. Our cells react to environmental stimulus and react to it. If that stimulus is stress, we adjust our bodies to cut back on the blood flow to our organs and the frontal part of our brains. The extra blood is diverted to our muscles to prepare for fight or flight. When this happens for a short time we revert back to a normal situation and everything is OK. When we live in constant stress our organs fail, our immune system fails and our thinking is diminished. We get sick! Dr Lipton [See his videos on thios topic: Video #1 Video #2] says we all have all the pathogens out there. They are already in our blood. We don’t catch a cold we already have the cold pathogens. When we are in prolonged stress our immune system slows down and those pathogens are left to rule. It is like taking the guard away from the store, it gets robbed!
