Do you get the flu shot? How about we skip over the controversial conversation about the flu shot and give you some information on how to prevent yourself from getting the flu, naturally. If you decide to get the flu shot, or not, these products can only help boost your immune system this flu season, which by the way, is here!
Here are some amazing products I use in my home to help boost me and my sons immune systems and provide a little extra help to keep us healthy and happy during the busy flu season.
Oregano oil: I use this on my son every night. I use Doterra Oregano touch oil (safe for kids) on the bottoms of his feet. I personally take Oregano oil in capsule form in the mornings. Oregano is a powerful antioxidant, natural antibiotic, improves gut health, has cancer-fighting properties, helps with yeast infections, helps lower cholesterol, and so much more!
Doterra On Guard Protective Blend: This oil is the bomb.com! The cool thing about Doterra, they have created so many home essential items from their On Guard oil. This helps keep our home clean from infectious germs. I use their hand soap, laundry detergent, cleaning concentrate, toothpaste, mouthwash, and of course the oil in capsule form. ￼On Guard oil is a blend of Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf. This is a powerful blend friends!
Vitamin C: I personally use Thorne Vitamin C. This is the Vitamin C my Naturopath recommended. I recommend doing your own research to find one that works best for you.
Elderberry: The berries and flowers of the Elderberry are packed with antioxidants and vitamins that can help boost your immune system. Durning this time of year we take a spoon full of elderberry syrup that I bought from a local Chiropractic office. I am sure you can find your own at a local farmers market or when in doubt, the trusted and wonderful Amazon Prime.
