Want to Avoid Colds? Stay Happy

A study in the July issue of Psychomatic Medicine showed that people who are energetic, happy and relaxed are less likely to catch colds, while those who are depressed, nervous or angry are more likely to complain about cold symptoms, whether or not they get bitten by the cold bug.

When I treat a patient with a cold or flu I seek to find out what caused the problem. It is hardly ever the cold virus, which is just a trigger. It usually results from:

  • Unresolved emotional stress (not being happy)
  • Not enough sleep
  • Going off the eating plan and consuming too many grains and sugars

I review this concept in more detail in my April article on SARS and Killer Pneumonia.
