005: 7 Steps on How to Fight at Cold

This Week’s Episode:

My husband, Ted Nugent, recently went on a trip and got sick.  I know that prevention is key to keeping sickness away.  I doubled up on my vitamins and made sure I got my greens.  Well, a few weeks later, Ted got sick again and this time, I wasn’t so vigilant.  I let my guard down and caught his cold!

In this episode, you are going to hear my seven steps on how to fight a cold.  Sure, it’s best not to get sick at all, but sometimes it happens, and these steps will help you recover from the illness.  For more information like I shared with you today, pick up my book, 4 Minutes a Day, Rock ‘n Roll Your Way to Happy: Be Happier, Healthier, More Prosperous, and Life the Life of Your Dreams
