If you or your child should ever spike a fever, getting that temperature down is as easy as taking a few over the counter drugs. But wait! Do you know the consequence of removing a fever? A delayed recovery from the flu. To explain it better, we should know how our immune system works. Our study that led to the development of AllerPops provides a good explanation...

Should you drink milk when you have a cold or flu? https://allerpops.com/should-you-drink-milk-when-you-have-a-cold-or-flu/ https://allerpops.com/should-you-drink-milk-when-you-have-a-cold-or-flu/#respond Sun, 12 Jan 2020 21:54:59 +0000 https://allerpops.com/?p=585 The simple answer is no. More generous answer is that drinking milk or eating food consisting lots of fiber is not a good idea when you have an infection or need your immune system to fight for you. To explain it better, we should know how our immune system works. Our study that led to the development of AllerPops provides a good explanation for this purpose. Do you want to become the few who know...

Why do we catch a cold when we are cold? https://allerpops.com/why-do-we-catch-a-cold-when-we-are-cold/ https://allerpops.com/why-do-we-catch-a-cold-when-we-are-cold/#respond Wed, 08 Jan 2020 04:07:33 +0000 https://allerpops.com/?p=574 Why is it that we catch a cold when the weather is cold? Is this a myth or just coincidence? The fact is the common cold does occur more often in winter or when we are cold for extended periods of time. But you may still be wondering is it because we stay indoors more and are exposed to the cold virus from other people or some other intrinsic reason? The answer is the later. There is a biological...

Cold, cold go away, don’t come back another day https://allerpops.com/cold-cold-go-away-dont-come-back-another-day/ https://allerpops.com/cold-cold-go-away-dont-come-back-another-day/#respond Sun, 29 Dec 2019 02:51:12 +0000 https://allerpops.com/?p=560 It is winter and it is cold. It is the season to get a cold. On average, adults catch a cold two to three times a year. People older than sixty years old have an average of one cold in a year. Dena, who goes to my church, had a nasty cold a couple of weeks ago. She looked under the weather when we met before our children’s Sunday worship. Her low and hoarse voice told the tale her cold.

How to give your baby an allergy-free life https://allerpops.com/how-to-give-your-baby-an-allergy-free-life/ https://allerpops.com/how-to-give-your-baby-an-allergy-free-life/#respond Tue, 17 Dec 2019 04:16:17 +0000 https://allerpops.com/?p=493 Come and see the baby. He has really bad allergies.” Yan asked me to follow her to see a baby of a family new to our church before our Friday Bible study three months ago. He looked like he was only three months old, but her mom told me he was eight months old. His skin was flushed red from head to toe and covered with fresh and healing scars from scratching. He was crying most of the time...

Love Your Enemies: Why we shouldn’t avoid hunger, germs, and hard work https://allerpops.com/love-your-enemies-why-we-shouldnt-avoid-hunger-germs-and-hard-work/ https://allerpops.com/love-your-enemies-why-we-shouldnt-avoid-hunger-germs-and-hard-work/#respond Tue, 12 Nov 2019 04:42:20 +0000 https://allerpops.com/?p=441 When I was growing up in China, we used to eat only two meals a day. The first thing adults and children did in the morning was to go to work and school, respectively. The first meal was served from 9 to 10, after which we would return to our duties. The second meal wasn’t until the late afternoon. In winter, it was common to only eat one meal a day. I started eating three meals a day in my early...
