Proper food, exercise and rest can help get your body into its best fighting condition. Dental health also counts. (Mounting evidence indicates that poor oral care can worsen serious medical problems).

This may be a time when you want to reach for what you think of as your comfort foods - the foods that make you feel better when you're down. If that's what you need to help get you through this period, then go for it. Once you've made a decision about which treatment  to take, keep your comfort foods for once in a while (say once a week). The goal is to eliminate unhealthy foods, or keep them to a bare minimum.

Remember, having a pet of any kind can help with both emotional and physical health.
