Lots of memes are going around social media platforms that warn of the 2nd wave of COVID-19 in the fall. They are often captioned with a reference to the Spanish Flu of 1918-1919. So let’s take a look why I think this will happen under current circumstances and how it can be mitigated.
Instead of looking at fatigue and digestive issues as separate problems, let’s dive into the very close connection between the two so you can kill 2 birds with one stone.
The person that chases pain is always lost. The person that fights fatigue is always tired. Instead of looking at these symptoms as separate and stupid, recognize them as intelligent and support them instead of suppressing them.

How many celebrity doctor shows, blogs, and social media posts have you encountered that tell you to ‘reduce stress?’ It’s the worst advice out there. It’s like telling a 3 year old to go to sleep, right after devouring birthday cake by saying, ‘just close your eyes.’
I avoid debates about disease causation because most are arguing within a ‘direct cause’ paradigm. Not everyone that smokes gets lung cancer. But it happens. Not everyone that gets into a car accident, breaks a bone. But it happens. Not everyone that gets a vaccine, develops autism. But it happens.
Does information get you results quicker? Rarely. It’s when you combine information with action that you create knowledge and you’re heading in the right direction. But if you want to save even more time getting to your health goals, you must combine knowledge with this…
