Most of the foods you eat contain certain chemicals/molecules/compounds/etc, that have naturally occurring 'healing' properties, specifically fruits
and vegetables. Cranberries and pomegranates are some of the best things to eat whenever you are sick. Both contain antibiotic and antiviral
compounds. Whenever I've been sick, my mom always goes to the store and buys bottles of cranberry juice, and by the next day, I feel 100%. There
are even pill which are extract of Cranberries and Pomegranates. Another plant, Stachys monnieri, commonly called the All Heal, has so many healing

A few months ago, everyone in my family came down with swine flu. It did nothing more to us that have us sleep in for 2 or 3 days. Every single one
of us was breast fed, we had all been sick plenty of times before, and we pulled through like it was anything else. The person who had it worse was
my teen sister, who had to stay in bed for a week and just sleep. Guess what? She is the most germaphobic person I know. She's been sick the least
amount of times of anyone in our family, and she refuses to do any kind of work and/or chore that has the slightest possibility of exposing her to
Diseases are a part of life. They feel a certain niche in the hierarchical order of nature. Every time we come up with some new vaccine or cure to a
disease, and remove it from that niche, there is always a new one there to take its place. They're a part of life, and we just have to live with
them either way.
