These three remedies will carry you through cold and flu season and help to rebuild a compromised immune system.
ELDERBERRY ELIXIR- 2 oz
Use this delicious and potent antiviral remedy at the first sign of a cold or flu, or if you’ve already caught something. This elixir is more effective when taken in frequent small doses, rather than occasionally taking larger dosages. We recommend taking 20-30 drops every couple of hours when your immune system needs some extra help. Finn thinks this remedy tastes so good that they place the drops directly into their mouth, but feel free to also add it to water, juice or tea.
FIRE CIDER- 2 oz
Fire cider is an immune boosting tonic with the anti-microbial, raw power of apple cider vinegar, honey, onions, garlic, ginger, horseradish and hot peppers. You can take a dose of it every day to keep you healthy or take a teaspoon every few hours at the first sign of a cold. Dilute it in water, tea or juice, sprinkle it on steamed veggies or put it in your salad dressing!
Although fire cider is a folk remedy popularized by Rosemary Gladstar in the 1970s, a company called Shire City Herbs has patented the term, causing a lot of controversy in the herbalist community. We’ve decided to continue to call this remedy by its traditional name to support the Tradition Not Trademark campaign. To learn more visit: freefirecider.com
MEDICINAL MUSHROOM IMMUNITY TONIC- 1 oz
This mushroom tincture is a mix of Reishi and Shiitake cultivated from Far West Funghi, and Turkey Tail that we wild harvested in Pescadero. Medicinal mushrooms are great for strengthening the immune system, as well as knocking out a cold as soon as it starts. They are highly antiviral and will not only work against the common cold, but can also be used to treat HPV, HSV, HEP B and C, and HIV. They are also antibacterial, antifungal (good for candida), anti inflammatory (good for arthritis), and are widely renowned for their anti cancer properties (especially turkey tail and reishi). They are helpful liver cleansers which is also an important part of keeping your immune system in good shape.
