5 Immune Boosting Tips That Work…

Great selection of bulk herbs, books, and remedies. Articles, Research Aids and much more.

I’m not bragging AT ALL! OK? But we deal with very little sickness in our house. And today I want to share a few tips with you that may help if you are struggling in this area.

I will simply share what works well for our family. As a disclaimer up front though, I’m definitely not a doctor and I don’t profess anything of the sort. But I’m a mom of six who has spent countless hours of studying and reading about natural health and wellness. Oh, and have experienced a bit of trial and error over the years!

Do my kids ever get sick? Of course! But I treat them quickly and effectively with home remedies. Here are a few of my best tips to keep your family on the road to good health.

1 ~ Preventive maintenance…

I cannot keep them quarantined all year nor do I want to, but if I know that there are viruses abounding at a certain place or time, I will do my best to keep some distance. I don’t take my babies shopping very often at all, especially during flu season. Grocery stores can be some really nasty places, plus mom needs a kid-free outing every now and then. Germs are everywhere and cannot be prevented unless you want to be a hermit… and I don’t. But some common sense prevention can spare a multitude of struggles! We home-school so that helps with those daily exposures. And of course, washing hands and general hygiene are important. With six young kids there is always a level of grossness involved!

2 ~ Plenty of rest…

I cannot stress this enough! Getting enough sleep is a HUGE factor in prevention. That extra nap and/or earlier bedtime are proven to boost the immune system and support the fighters in our bodies, which are created uniquely to protect themselves. I’m very passionate about this as I have experienced first hand the adverse effects that lack of sleep brings.

3 ~ Give them outdoor time as much as possible…

Natural vitamin D is amazing and so important for all of us! Too many of us Americans are vitamin D deficient and dealing with issues related to that. So if the sun is shining, let them play outdoors!

Ingesting foods that are high in Vitamin D are also important. Salmon, Cod liver oil, canned tuna, shrimp, egg yokes, and mushrooms. You can also supplement with a good multivitamin or straight Vitamin D.

4 ~ Immune boosting tincture…

For 12 years, I have been making an immune boosting tincture that I keep in stock all winter long. I created a FREE download with my directions on how to make your own. This tincture is loaded with immune-boosting organic herbs and it’s a simple process to make your own. Get your copy of the directions here!


5 ~ A great kids multivitamin that is super clean with probiotics added…

The one we use is delicious, chew-able, and has no sugar added! With 13 essential vitamins in bio-available forms that help little tummies to absorb them, this one packs a punch! It’s a 2-in-1 supplement that also features powerful probiotics designed especially for kids. And they are delicious! You can find more info here on the X-Factor Kids multi-vitamin.

Those are just 5 of my tips, feel free to drop yours in the comments! I’m always learning…

Till next time…..
