Some wonderful options for supporting your healthy style during the summer is plant medicine.
Elderberry syrup is my favorite preventative measure for any season, due to the antiviral, antibacterial, antibiotic, and powerful immune boosting qualities of Elderberries. We mix it with our local honey as well as cinnamon and ginger to give it that syrupy sweet taste as well as boost its effectiveness. Not a fan? Elderberries can also be tinctured and will be just as effective at treating cold symptoms. Elderberry should not be used long term and not for those with over active immune systems.
Another quick and easy way to help your body kick a cold is Echinacea. Studies show Echinacea increases the number of white blood cells in your body, which aid in fighting infection. It is believed to be one of Mother Nature’s most powerful antibiotics and can be used to alleviate symptoms caused by strep throat, sore throat, ear infections, colds, and so much more. Tinctured or made into a tea, Echinacea is a must in any household and can be taken preventatively or situationally.
