Never understood that saying “feed a cold, starve a fever.”

Some claim that avoiding food during an infection helps your body heal.
So fever being part of this viral infection I assumed intermittent fasting is a good thing, but allot of sights say you should be eating nutrient sense foods… So is fasting a nono for Corona?

Good question. I’ve always been a fan of fasting to help healing in general, but wonder if your body needs nutrients to fight

Just take things like bee bread, Moringa, shilajit, chlorella, healing foods and do semi fast with high nutrient density foods

I will have to research that. Since this is a new bug… not sure
