How to Combat the Stomach Flu
Matt Iseman joins Sophie Uliano to talk about the stomach flu and how to treat yourself when you have it. When you get the flu, rest because your body needs it! Avoid caffeine, dairy, spicy foods and high fat foods, since those can make you feel even worse. Sophie recommends ginger root to help ease cramps and nausea. You have to drink your electrolytes since your body is losing them during the flu. Rice water is the healthy way to replace lost electrolytes.

Ask Shirley!Shirley is back to answer questions from Facebook. She advises multilayering when it comes to plants to trick the eye in space and depth. You can give your plants more space by buying hanging plants, instead of ones that grow in the ground. When it comes to growing your food, start with tomatoes, cucumbers, and eggplants, because they help maximize your space when it comes to planting.
