Until I got married, I never really took the concept of "yin and yang" into account when I got sick.
I believe my cough and runny nose were both caused by viral infection. I was certain I caught it while I was in the lab. The lab was so cold and filled with sick people. It was systemic.
Anyway, my husband told me to drink hot chocolate before going to bed. I'd be crazy to refuse chocolate. A "medical excuse" to eat or drink chocolate is a hall pass to sin.
I made myself a cup of Swiss Miss. I should've skipped the marshmallows but my husband marshmallows are good for sore throat. Whatt??!!! Weird science!!!
