Gearing up for cold and flu season
October 6, 2014
With colder days and more time spent inside, viruses tend to proliferate. Having a stock of nourishing food, supplements, and herbal products on hand can relieve a lot of anxiety when dealing with a cold or the flu.
Nourishing foods help bolster our immune systems as well as support many chemical processes in the body that help decrease recovery time if we do become ill. Studies have shown some supplements and herb to be useful as well.
As I review my herbal medicine chest and plan for cooler weather, I will be posting information on dealing with colds and flu from a natural perspective. Included in the posts will be recipes for our favorite syrups, balms, essential oils and teas.
The following is a list of things I like to have on hand and use during the cooler months:
Bone broths (either canned or frozen)
Kefir~ water and goat milk
fermented foods (if I can get the family to eat them ;0 )
