~Five AMAZING Herbs~
BUILD immunity, STOP the progression and EASE symptoms
1. Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea)
You can use #echinacea roots or leaves as a tea. This lovely plant helps fight inflammation, and defends against respiratory bacterial and viral infections (1). If you are in the midst of a cold/flu you can add golden root to boost echinacea's properties but only use one week on, and then take a week off for no more that two weeks.
2.Slippery Elm Bark (Ulmus nibra)
The inner bark of the Slippery Elm can be steeped to make tea. This medicinal bark aids inflammation of mucous membranes and helps alleviate diarrhea. We all know how mucous membranes get inflamed and congested during fall/winter dry season. I love #slipperyelm! It has worked every-time for me. Helps with IBS systems as well.
3. Elderberry (Sambucus naigra)
The berries, inner bark and roots should be decocted (boiled) to obtain juices. Eating berries can lead to poisoning. The leaves should be infused. Research has shown it to bind to the H1N1 virus preventing the virus from entering host cells (2). This means it can prevent the flu from entering you. It has also been shown to reduce the duration if taken at the onset of feeling sick (3). The elder's healing elements combat free radicals, build and cleanse blood and stimulates circulation. It can also lower fever. Stay away from the stems as they are very toxic!
4. Pau'd Arco Bark (Tabebula impetigimosa)
This inner bark works well in fighting bacterial and viral infections and also cleanses the blood. #Paudarco - contains lapachol which has "antimicrobial properties against many pathogens. It has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antibiotic properties. It is an inhibitor of epithelial tumors in Drosophila melanogaster heterozygote. " according to Sigma Aldrich (Click here for link).
5. Rose Hips (Rosa spp.)
These little gems are what is left after a rose flower has died. They contain concentrated vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc B vitamins and of course, beta-carotene a precursor to vitamin A. #RosehipsvitaminC
