Why are colds called colds? Did you ever wonder about that? Back in the Good Old Days, i.e. The Middle Ages, sickness was considered an imbalance of bodily humours. There were four such humours, phlegm, blood (sangue), black bile(choler) and yellow bile. The medieval physicians also looked at whether one was hot or cold.

So I feel like my humours are out of balance. Maybe that is my problem.

What about your humours?
