We all feel under the weather once in a while and for many of us the remedy can turn to resorting to junk food, staying up, and doing nothing to deal with our illness. As suggested, this isn’t the brightest thing to do if your plan is to recover. Not only that, but there are plenty of other things as well that aren’t wise to do as well.
Below is a short list of “remedies” that make matters worse for you.
OD ON VITAMIN C
While all of us know vitamin C boosts and supports our immune system, we can sometimes go overboard on it. Remember that our body stores nutrients pretty well and while various vitamins help, too much can cause problems. In the case of vitamin C, you can relieve yourself of illness in short term, but in the long term it can have adverse effects on you.
Take a study from 2013 for example. Published in JAMA Internal Medicine, the study found that those who boosted their intake of vitamin C were more likely to develop kidney stones. So while oranges are great, too many can cause problems.
