Is it just me or is everyone getting sick right now???
My husband coworker is sick, the entire vocal team at church was out sick last weak, my mom’s family has been sick 3 times in the last couple of weeks…
Thankfully Josh and I have had enough trial and error when it comes to treating cold & flu viruses that we now know exactly what we need to prevent from getting sick.. or at least not nearly as often as others do.
These 4 essential items I’m about to share with you, I NEVER run out of come cold & flu season. And pretty much if you keep them stocked – you shouldn’t need to have any other products in your cupboard for when you get sick.
1. Olive Leaf Extract
Kind of the Holy Grail of natural healing, is my first item on the list… Olive Leaf Extract. You’ve probably heard of the tremendous healing benefits of blueberries, and elderberries right? Well they don’t hold a candle to Olive Leaf Extract! There is only 1 brand that I trust because of the quality.
It’s a powerful medicinal tool; benefits include cardiovascular and immune system support, an increase in energy and promoting healthy blood pressure. Whenever Josh and I hear whispers of sickness… we take a swig, whenever I feel alittle groggy… I take a swig. Prevention is always that best treatment and is so much easier then dealing with the symptoms of being sick.
We even use this in our lyme disease cure regiment for both us and the dogs, you can read more about that in my recent post “How We Cured Lyme Disease 100% Naturally”
2. Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol for Immune Support
This has been used for centuries in homeopathic healing and is commonly used today to treat and cure sinus infections. Bio-active silver hydrosol represents the ultimate refinement of the colloidal silver category, this brand contains 98% positively charge silver, if silver is not positively charged, it doesn’t work well. Sovereign silver is the selling silver supplement in north America for immune support, trusted by millions for unprecedented quality.
I only buy organic essential oils and of the purest therapeutic grade to ensure quality. Eucalyptus is known to help sooth the symptoms of colds & flu.
I created a blog post for how to make DIY Shower Steamers For Colds & Flu using eucalyptus essential oil. You can see that here: http://destiniingoldsby.com/diy-shower-steamers-for-cold-flu-season
4. Raw Honey
When I can’t get raw honey from my friend who raises bees, I buy mine from Shaws or a local farmer.
I like it because it is from a christian family and is 100% unfiltered raw honey. For all the healing properties you need RAW, it’s not good enough to just have organic. If you want to know more about the natural healing benefits of raw honey, you can checkout my other blog post “Why I Eat Raw Unfiltered Honey Daily“.
