So, cold and flu season is almost here!  Obviously I hope none of us get sick, because well … that just isn’t fun!

Obviously there is no way to ensure your family doesn’t get sick, however, there are ways to boost everyone’s immune systems naturally to help ward off illness and lessen the blow when it happens!

We will be:

Will these things keep our family 100% well?  Maybe not, but that isn’t their job.  Combined with healthy foods and other natural lifestyle changes the above list definitely helps with overall health and wellbeing.  When you take care of the internal systems- the gut namely- the rest will take care of itself.

Gut health is so important- if you are having problems in the way of symptoms (think eczema, body aches, migraines, rashes, upset stomach,) look at the diet and gut health first.

Not all bodies are created equally, and not all foods are either.  

In case we do come down with illnesses, I will have my essential oils on hand, and my homemade cough medicine ready to go!  I also want to look into making some elderberry syrup and cough drops- that is on my “to try” list.

What will you do this fall and winter to care for your family?

    Elderberry syrup and throat drops are on my to make list, too!
    I’ve got a couple recipes that look convenient and easy for me to make.

    Love this! All good stuff. I especially love that you take a balanced approach nutritionally. 🙂 And that nothing can really prevent us from ever getting sick 100%. I really need to do fermented foods and probiotics. I’d add Vitamin D to my list, and I’ve not tried the Oregano yet, but I do love Purification and Lemon for colds. I’m stocking up on respiratory oils too, just in case. 🙂

      Thank you Michelle! I have stocked up on all the “essential” cold and flu oils on my last few ER orders. Probiotic foods are so easy and yummy. I crave kimchi on a daily basis. When you are ready to try kombucha or water kefir (and the water kefir can be used to ferment foods) let me know and I will shoot you starters via snail mail. 🙂
