Is Hand Washing or Hand Sanitizer Better for Avoiding the Flu? Discover Which is Your Best Bet to Miss Out on the Yuck
The flu is making its rounds and everyone is wondering what they can do to protect themselves.
I want to address an important part of the conversation that tends to get overlooked: handwashing versus hand sanitizer.
These two things seem equivocal in most people’s minds: just do one of them regularly and you’re covered.

It’s my favorite broth to have in the freezer, ready to pull out if I’m under the weather or just craving some really flavorful, nutrient-dense food.
I get this question a lot in my practice.
Many of my patients get massages, chiropractic care, PT, or other bodywork and their practitioners tell them to drink a lot of water afterward.
Most of the time people forget, and the #1 reason is because they don’t know WHY they’re supposed to do it!
Did you jump on the “new year, new you” bandwagon?
This catchy phrase is now trotted out every January as inspiration to help us make and stick to resolutions.
And I’m pretty tired of it for a number of reasons.
This week a patient came to me in tears because she got a cold.
She’d been through a lot in the past year, including surgery and a cancer scare.
Since then, she’d been doing great. She made major diet changes, started exercising, learned to manage her stress better, had emotional reckonings with her family, and more.
Then she came down with a sore throat and fever.
Exhausted and crying, she sat across from me and told me she felt like an utter failure.
