Please follow and like us:

In this Chu on This episode, Tami explores the Old Wives’ Tales about remedies for common illnesses and puts them up against current science to see how they stack up.  Things like chicken soup, Vitamin C, and feeding a cold, all get their time in the spotlight.  Tune in to see what Tami has to say about the placebo effect and what common over-the-counter medications might be exactly what you DON’T need when your body is struggling.
