So, I’m sure you’ve heard that the flu has grown to be an epidemic. Even though I don’t agree with the mainstream media raising our cortisol levels by rattling off alarming flu statistics every 5 minutes, it’s obviously important to take care of your body right now.
Stress, more than anything, is what weakens the immune system, so take a deep breath and remember that your body is strong!
Since I commute to the city, these are my top 2 preventative measures that I’ve been using daily:
- One capsule of Immune Shroom twice a day (before breakfast & before bed).
- One teaspoon of elderberry syrup twice a day right alongside the Immune Shroom dose. (You can take it straight or add it to your morning lemon water, which is freaking delicious. I’ve never met a man who doesn’t love the taste of elderberry, so if you don’t want your hubby getting sick and giving you cooties, this is one remedy I’m pretty sure he’ll be happy to take!)
Immune Shroom is our housemade blend of 5 medicinal mushrooms (unfortunately not the magic kind!) But, we do have a lot of customers who are teachers for example rely on these year-round to avoid sickness, and in THAT sense, they’re pretty darn magical. The mushrooms such as reishi, turkey tail, and cordyceps boost your body’s own production of natural killer cells — the type that seek out and destroy unhealthy cells, growths and foreign invaders. We also included black pepper extract which boosts the absorption of these mushrooms the same way it boosts turmeric! You can grab a bottle right in our shop
Elderberry Syrup is in every herbalist’s first aid kit. It’s an anti-viral immune booster that can either be taken to prevent sickness or decrease the duration if you start doses within 24-72 hours of getting sick. It’s also a favorite of mine for before and after airplane travel, since we all looooove that recycled air!
