Over the years I have learned about several natural things that we have added into our lives. Essential oils, cleaning with just water, vitamins, trace minerals and the list goes on. I am in LOVE with my latest find, Lypo-Shperic Vitamin C! Where has this been all my life? I wanted to share some specific items that we use in our home when someone starts to feel “something” coming on. We do all that we can to give our immune systems as much powerful, helpful stuff as we can to help our bodies fight! Our bodies are amazing and I believe they have within, everything they need to heal themselves. We try to give our bodies a boost to help them on their way to feeling better faster!
Heres what Me and my Husband (Adults) take:
*Probiotics – Immune booster. This is really great to take daily and not just when you are sick. Get at your health food store or here. Your immune system is in your gut so you want to get all the good bacteria you can.
*Essential oils – Onguard + pill – (I use Doterra, there are other great companies as well you could look into like Young Living and Butterfly Express.) You want an immune defense blend. Essential oils are very powerful. Go with a reputable company. Many oils companies on the market do not produce pure products. They have filler and other such junk.
*Echinacea – Immune booster. Before taking Echinacea read about it here. University of Maryland Medical Center Get at health food stores or here
*Lypospheric Vitamin C – Order below. Learn more here: Why Lypospheric Vitamin C
*Complexed Silver – You need a high quality silver with super small ionic size particles so the silver can pass in and out of the cell. Silver is antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial. It is great for SO many things! As far as ingesting it, we take it when we are sick and until we feel better. This is my favorite Silver that I have taken for years! Complexed Silver Grab a bottle for now and a bottle for storage and Emergency Preparedness.
*Vitamin D3 – I actually take this year round. I was tired a lot and through blood tests found that my D3 was low. This is common in many people living in climates with a cold weather season and don’t get out in the sun much. D3 is an immune booster so its great to take through the winter and especially when you are sick. This brand is a fantastic brand. With Metagenics you will get high quality products.
*Probiotic – chewable or liquid. Probiotics put good bacteria into the gut where our immune system actually is. The one below tastes great and my kids love it. Keep it refrigerated after its opened.
*Essential oil Ongard Doterra Beadlet. Also we put oils on their feet and up their spine. As soon as any of us feel something coming on we get oils on the spine right away! This is a huge help in nipping things in the butt and giving your body what it needs to fight. I really can tell a difference when I do this and so can my kids. They will actually ask for me to put the oils on their back. Check out my post with ore details here: Mom Trick For Sick Kids
*Liquid Echinacea or Astragalus. Both are immune boosters. For kids consult with someone at your local Health Food Store on dosage for your child. This is not something you would take daily, only during the time of feeling run down and sick.
*Lyposherica Vitamin C in orange juice – order here:
*Complexed Silver – Use when you are feeling sick. You need a high quality silver with super small ionic size particles so the silver can pass in and out of the cell and not cause any toxicity. I have used this silver for years and years and love it. Order at My Favorite Silver
