Immune System Boosters

So, Fall is here and Winter is fast approaching. In our household, that means time to make sure that our check list of Immune Boosters are checked off when the time comes to use them. So, here are some of the things that I keep handy at all times.

  1. Elderberry Syrup : It is known for its immune boosting properties. I like to make my own using this recipe but if you don’t have time or are not inclined to make it, you can buy it from Gaia Herbs.
  2. Fire Cider: I first heard of this from my midwife friend Kara Schamel. She offered it to me once and I loved it. So, I started making my own following this recipe. Though, I do modify it a little as I can’t tolerate jalapenos. Instead, I add lots of peppercorns. I made the current batch that I am using in the beginning of Spring this year. Now, I have it all wonderfully infused.
  3. Vit D: Most people are deficient in Vit D. For my family, I make sure that we get our dose of Vit D everyday especially in the winter months. I like Natural Health Vit D Drops. And I also like Biotics Research. (I don’t make any profit by linking it to Amazon, these are just brands that I have used and liked)
  4. Essential Oils: There are a number of EO that help with boosting the immune system but there are a few that are my go to. I make an Immune Boosting Roll on using Thieves EO, Purification EO and Lemon EO. I just add 10 drops of each with 20 drops of sweet almond oil in a glass roll on bottle. It is totally portable

Immune Booster Roll on5. Chiropractic Work: People usually think of Chiropractic work only for muscular skeletal related issues. The low impact of Axial Stability Method is a wonderful way to support the body’s natural ability to heal. I often visit my chiropractor when I am starting to come down with something and it nips it in the bud.

6. Vit C: Good quality Vit C can be highly beneficial in the winter months to boost immunity. I like the company Pure Synergy. Again, I don’t paid for sharing these products, I just want to have some leads for anyone reading this blog.

7. Rest and Water:  Rest and drinking water can help anyone recover. Never underestimate the power of rest. I often do some visualization of complete health and wellbeing and send gratitude to my body for functioning so efficiently. I feel that when someone falls sick, it is the body and mind’s way of saying slow down.

So, equip your home with these supportive items and be at peace during the winter months.

NingXia Red = Awesomeness

I am not a coffee drinker but coming from an Indian background, I love my ‘chai’. Not all chai, but specifically the one that my husband makes. I decided that I needed to take a break from drinking my 1/2 cup of chai that I was drinking every day for the past 6/9 months. Even though my son sleeps 11/12 hours a night, I don’t get to sleep for more than 6 hours as that is my time for getting things done. So, needless to say, I am tired by the time 9:00 am rolls around. Hence the chai was a real need….

I decided instead to substitute it with NingXia Red, we call it the ‘Ninja’ drink in our house…. It is this super delicious wolfberry drink supplement that Young Living makes. It has been specially formulated to energize, fortify and replenish the body and mind.

This proprietary blend contains pure essential oils (orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine) renowned Wolfberry Puree and a variety of vitamin- riched whole fruits such as blueberries, apricots, raspberries, and pomegranates. Wolfberries contribute 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, more beta carotene than carrots, more vitamin C than oranges, vitamin E, and vitamins B1, B2, and B6.

Gary Young had been very curious in the longevity and vitality in different cultures around the world. He started to look into the NingXia Province in China where wolfberry is grown. It is very similar to Goji berries found in India.

You just need 1-2 oz of NingXia Red everyday to help support the body as it provides vital antioxidants, helps with energy level, supplements and supports the immune system, supports normal cellular function, supports eye health and fights free radicals in our body. Basically it supports the whole body system. Hence the term ‘The Ninja Drink’ in our house.

I sometimes add Lemon EO, Thieves EO to my shot of NingXia. I add Frankincense to my husband’s sometimes. It is a great way to start the day energized. Here is a picture of my husband getting his shot of NingXia Red = #1ozofawesomeness
