Great Herbs, Supplements, and Ideas To Support Your Immune System
Steve St. Clair, Enerhealth Botanicals
In the midst of the Government shutting down I feel this is a good opportunity to remind everyone not to allow our bodies to do the same. This time of year can be very stressful with the holidays approaching, world events (that never end), and just emerging from summer.
Personally, this last few weeks have been crazy. I have been extremely busy running all over the place with work and family and I can feel my body weakening. Getting run down can happen to the best of us as it is real easy to forget to take care of yourself when you are busy and stressed out. However, it is in these times that taking care of ourselves is absolutely crucial.
The easiest way to achieve shut down is to run yourself into the ground. Stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, and burning the candle at both ends, all have detrimental effects on your immune system and once your immune system is compromised you are more susceptible to getting sick.
So for those of you in the same boat, here are some suggestions (some of which we offer, some just home remedies) to help you through the busy stressful times:
Daily Immune Support
This is a great product of mushroom extracts that will help maintain a healthy immune system. Mushrooms are adaptogens and are great stress combatant and immune system supporter.
Relax & De-Stress
This herbal blend has been my best friend over the last week. I like to take it throughout the day as needed. The great thing about this blend is that you can take it anytime because it does not cause drowsiness.
This product is great but especially now as the days are getting shorter and our exposure to the Sun is becoming less. Make sure you are taking adequate doses, as Vitamin D has a tremendously positive effect on your immune system.
This is a powerful immune support blend and one of our most popular products during the winter months. This blend is great if you are feeling like you are about to get sick or to help speed up the recovery process.
Lack of sleep, poor nutrition, and too much stress are some of the exact reasons we created Enerfood. Darren and I designed the product to combat all these things. Make sure you are taking this product daily!
You know that feeling when you get that first hint of a sore throat? Which then leads to dread as to not if but when you will get sick. Well at the first sign of a sore throat I immediately cut up some Garlic and suck on it. Garlic is an extremely powerful antibiotic and usually nips any sore throat. Sure your significant other might be turned off but its better than being sick.
Turn off your WiFi
Darren actually suggested this to me this morning. He has had some trouble sleeping recently and last night turned off his WiFi Connection and said he slept great. We tend to forget all the energy constantly surrounding us and this is important I think regardless of whether you are sleeping well or not.
Those are just some suggestions, as I don’ want to take up too much of your time on the beautiful weekend, but I feel this is an important reminder. So please take care of yourself.
Have a healthy, safe, and happy day,
