I've been wanting to do this post for awhile. Over the past year (knock on wood) we haven't had much sickness around here. When my throat does start to feel scratchy or when we've been around someone sick I start doing these things. Tis' the season for sickness. I'm hoping maybe you can incorporate one or more of these things into your life this winter.
1- Bump up the Vitamin C
We don't start chugging gallons of orange juice but I do try to incorporate more vitamin c into our diet.
2- Bring out the weird stuff
Immune support tea, elderberry syrup, tumeric milk, and kombucha. Anything that will give our immune systems an extra boost.
3- Increase vegetable consumption
I really pay attention to how many vegetables we are getting and add a few extra if I can.
4- Use a doTERRA flu bomb and diffuse OnGuard
We used this on our trip from California to North Carolina and back. I put it on the bottoms our feet before we went to bed each night. Even with the flu running rampant we didn't get a sniffle. I also diffuse OnGuard at home. Buy doTERRA oils here.
5- Drink bone broth and lots of water
Bone broth heals and is packed with vitamins and minerals.
Tell me how you beat a cold.
