Everyone fears the financial sting of holiday shopping, party costs, and that much-needed gym membership when the holiday binge-eating does us in. However, there is one thing that we dread even more this time of year… cold and flu season.
Although we can’t put everyone in a bubble until it passes, we can prepare our bodies for the fight and win it in no time at all. Naturally. Yes, I said naturally. Forget that over-the-counter garbage that just masks your symptoms. It’s great until it wears off and you’re scrambling for more. It doesn’t shorten the battle and it usually leaves you feeling groggy and out-of-sorts. Are you even sure what’s in it? Dump it in the trash, because I’m going to give you the Top 6 all-natural remedies for boosting your immune system and beating that crud!
1. Apothicare Elderberry Syrup & Apothicare Osha Elderberry Syrup
Elderberry syrup, as an all-natural supplement, is a fantastic way to not only boost your immune system, but also help fight off the virus itself. Elderberry itself carries powerful antiviral properties, antioxidants, and vitamins that help reduce the duration of your sickness and strengthens your immunity as well. This syrup is also packed with natural honey, organic ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and coconut oil, which are all deliciously potent ingredients that help strengthen your immune system and soothe your symptoms.
If you are struggling with respiratory issues as well, the Osha Elderberry syrup is what you need in your arsenal. Osha root is used to treat coughs, sore throat, bronchitis, and even pneumonia and the swine flu. It is also used as an immune system booster, much like elderberry. Osha is an effective natural treatment against many viral and respiratory infections, including the common cold and the flu.
If you don’t have this in your medicine cabinet, its time for you to get some!
We all love that vapor rub relief when we are stuffy and miserable, but most vapor rubs are petroleum-based balms. This petroleum-based balm is refined from carcinogenic by-products of oil (yuck!) and can cause a plethora of long term health problems, including damage to your lungs. So even though you are getting temporary relief, you are putting your general health at risk as to the price.
Daisy Blue Naturals Relief Therapeutic Oil is a safe and all-natural alternative. This oil gives you the same vapor rub relief while being completely safe to your health. Therapeutic Relief Oil is so safe, in fact, that it is recommended for all ages! It can be used in all the same fashions as vapor rub.
The Relief Rollerball is also a fantastic way to provide some relief from nasty cold and flu symptoms, with on-the-go, ready-to-use benefits. It’s the perfect size for your pocket or your purse and the ingredients are pre-mixed in safflower and coconut oils (which are great for your skin). Just roll it on your pressure points, chest, or feet, and go!
4. Daisy Blue Naturals Immunitea Herbal Tea
A hot cup of tea comes with many benefits. The steam can help loosen mucus, open up your air passages, and add much-needed humidity to your lungs. Also, drinking warm water can soothe a sore throat and help promote healthy digestion. But what can help most is getting the right nutrients into your body.
Our Immunitea is a 100% organic blend of herbs made to boost the immune system and relieve your symptoms. This blend is made with peppermint, elderflower, raspberry leaf, ginger root, elderberries, yarrow, and hyssop herb. These herbs work together to relieve headaches, congestion, indigestion, sore throat, and body aches and chills.
So, before you reach for that Alka-Seltzer or Day-Quil, give your body what it REALLY needs to beat that crud… the right nutrients.
5. Daisy Blue Naturals Cold Comfort “Relief” Bath Salts
A hot bath can be incredibly comforting. Again, the steam alone can help tremendously, but a good soak can help remove virus causing bacteria from your pores and the surface of your skin. Adding some eucalyptus and peppermint to your tub can help threefold.
Our Cold Comfort Bath Salts are exactly what you need before you hop in that tub. Made with the perfect blend of essential oils and naturals salts to bring you relaxation and relief while you soak.
6. Himalayan Salt Infrared Sauna
If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit our Himalayan Salt sauna in Austin, Minnesota, there’s no better time than now. The cold months are far from over and even if you aren’t struggling with some kind of bug, heat therapy can lift your spirits and boost your general health. But right now, we are going to focus on HOW it is good for your health, especially when you are sick.
Himalayan Salt alone is said to rebalance your pH levels, improves hydration, reduces muscle cramps and inflammation, and allows for easier breathing. Add this to the benefit of heat therapy, and your body will be in heaven. Plus, sweating helps rid toxins and unhealthy bacteria from your body and can put your immune system into drive. These benefits could mean the difference between miserable you and happy you. If you fall in love with the Himalayan Salt Sauna after your session, don’t worry… memberships are available for all budget types!
