How to Make an Immunity Boosting Tincture


The holidays are here. Everywhere you go there seems to be gatherings with sweets galore being offered and runny nosed kids. (Mine being some of them.) It is important to start building up your immune system now to fight off all the illness that we are prone to get during the holiday season.

I speak from personal experience, I was the kid who came from a house where we ate real foods and little refined sugars. Dessert was a once a week treat. Every Christmas we would fly to Missouri to visit our family. Well intending family would stuff my siblings and I with gobs of sweets when my mom wasn’t watching that our bodies weren’t used to. Inevitably we would go the see our old family doctor EVERY year with out fail.
My mom had had enough; talk about having one angry mama bear on hand. She started to think of preventative ways to help us not get sick. She dedicated time to reading and researching how to help us. The flowing year the mom who already limited our sugar intact cut us cold turkey after thanksgiving. No sweets were allowed in our house. We upped our Vitamin C, getting lots of rest and  started taking  Echinacea tincture about a week before our trip. Guess what, that year we didn’t get sick!

  1. Herbal medicine is the playfulness of healing. This delight has been relished in since ancient times. The herbs can be more of a catalyst to the greater healing one finds within, a meditation and search for what was lost or what needs replenishing, body and soul.
