It's based on a practice called natural hygiene. No joke, I feel like crap when I'm sick but I go on the theory that my immune system can take care of the job and I just get out of its way. Symptoms are the evidence and output signaling that the immune system is winning so I don't take anything to block them. As for food, I don't force my body to exert any energy digesting and processing food so it can use that energy to heal. Certain antibiotics are there if I am losing the fight but I'm allergic or react negatively to most of them anyway so I found an alternative path.
