For some reason in the fall sniffles and coughs always catch me by surprise,
It happens every year,
With everyone getting a little closer indoors
and the increase in sugar uptake
and decrease in physical activity, sunshine, fresh air,
it’s just a recipe for disaster.
Couple things you can do:
✔️ get a good multi vitamin
✔️ ELDERBERRY ⬅️ this is stuff is amazing!
✔️ Chiropractic! Helps your body with immune response.
There is some evidence to support the claim that elderberry can help treat colds and flu.
A review from 2010 concluded that elderberries might have antioxidant and antiviral effects, though the authors state that more research is needed.
In one study, 60 people with flu-like symptoms took 15 milliliters (ml) of elderberry syrup four times a day. Their symptoms improved 4 days before the people who took a placebo.
Recommended dosages for Elderberry are:
Adults: 1 teaspoon daily*
Ages 1-2: 1/8 teaspoon daily*
Ages 3-5: 1/4 teaspoon daily*
Ages 6-12: 1/2 teaspoon daily*
For Additional Support:
Adults: 1 teaspoon, 2 times daily*
Children: Take recommended dose for age, 2 times daily*
*Or as directed by a qualified health-care provider.
