“Be joyful though you have considered all the facts.” — Wendell Berry

You’re feeling miserable, coughing, runny nose, sore throat, fever, achy all over and fatigued. You go to the doctor expecting and praying for some relief. She tells you it’s a virus and recommends home remedies and supportive treatment, some of which you’ve already tried.

Dr. Victor S. Sierpina is the WD and Laura Nell Nicholson Family Professor of Integrative Medicine and Professor of Family Medicine at UTMB.
