All natural remedies used to be all there ever was…and although many people take advantage of our access to modern medicine, there are still many people out there, like me, who prefer natural remedies.
This post is all about what I actually use whenever I need some immune support! I try to avoid synthetic medicines at all costs! Have you read up on all of the side effects? Not only are these remedies great for the body, but they actually work!
Over the counter medicines just mask symptoms temporarily, whereas natural remedies actually make you get better, faster! Whenever I am sick, my symptoms are minimal and I am usually 100% better within 2 days!!
Here are all natural remedies that really work for my family:
As soon as I start feeling like I am getting sick, I drink 10ml of this elderberry syrup twice daily. I first heard about elderberry syrup as recommended by my kids’ pediatrician. She says it’s more effective at treating the flu than Tamiflu.
And if you may be wondering, my kids drink it too! I half the dosage for them. This brand is the most potent Elderberry Extract of them all packing a whopping 3.8g (3,800 milligrams of elderberry extract) and is the best bang for your buck. Hurry up and order before the next flu season and before they run out of stock!
I take “shots” of this organic apple cider vinegar throughout the day. You can also mix it with water or in a smoothie if you can’t handle the strong taste. Getting it with the vinegar mother means more prebiotics, phytochemical compounds, iron and vitamin B so you can stay healthy!
I also swear by this homeopathic medicine! I love all Boiron products. Read more about how homeopathic medicine has changed my life by reading this post!
Essential oils are great for supporting the body. My go to for immune support is Thieves! I love to rub it on the bottoms of our feet with a carrier oil a few times a day during cold and flu season, or whenever we feel like we are fighting something off.
There is something about chicken noodle soup that helps fight off a cold. It is also the perfect meal when you do not have much of an appetite.
