Flu vs. A Cold
Flu symptoms cause people to experience a sore throat, fever, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, cough, and fatigue, and flu usually comes on suddenly. A cold usually causes a runny or stuffy nose, and it typically develops gradually. Does it matter whether you have flu or a cold? YES - because flu can cause serious complications, such as pneumonia, so it is best to treat flu within 48 hours of experiencing symptoms.

What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement?
You’ve likely heard of it, but what is it?
Bio-identical hormones are basically what your body already produces. BHRT (Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy) is the process of finding what your deficiencies, surpluses, and imbalances are, then correcting them with the compounds similar to those normally found in your body.
It’s really all about balance, as opposed to replacement, in many cases.
