Kick that cold’s butt, vegan style: Boosting your immune system with vegan holistic wellness
I was getting sick whenever my toddler would bring something home from the playground… but then I added these things to my diet and haven’t been sick since. This also works very well if you do have the cold or flu already and need to fight it fast. Watch the video to see what I added.
*Elderberry (boil in water. Never eat fresh elderberry or dried berries unless you have boiled them. If you don’t, you will poison yourself with cyanide that is found in the berry. The cyanide is neutralized through boiling them. If you are scared to do this yourself, then by a tincture of elderberry) Click here– for Dried elderberry Click here for —> Elderberry extract
*Eucalyptus Essential Oil (don’t eat, just inhale). USE Radiata not Globolus species.
Furthermore, if you already have a cold or flu, please note that this helpful:
* Cat’s Claw. I swear by it. The only reason I don’t take it is because it can’t be taken while pregnant or nursing. I recommend the tea over the tincture. Decoct the bark tea for about 20 minutes. Drink 2-3 times per day. Here is more information
* Don’t eat acidifying foods. I know it’s hard, but stay away from anything that isn’t “life-giving”. The top three things that most people do, while they are sick is eat things that make them sicker: fried food, sugar, and coffee. Take it out now. The rhino virus loves sugar and caffeine.
*Simmer several garlic cloves in vinegar. Or, you can chop up lots of fresh garlic and infuse it into olive oil and then take it that way after about an hour. I prefer that over simmering garlic. Raw garlic hurts my tummy, but the vinegar or the olive oil prevents that for most people who can’t handle the allicin. Try eating a 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of the minced stuff every 4 hours. You’ll have dragon breath, but, whatever. The upside is that you’ll have lot of energy and it increases sexual libido LOL.
*Lots of catnip tea to break the fever and decongest your nose.
*Olbas essential oils. Drop it in newly boiled water and cover your head and inhale it.
*Plenty of rest and sleep and fluids that are non-caffeinated and non-sugar. Don’t get dehydrated.
*Don’t take over the counter decongestants or Nyquil. I know it sucks that I say this, but herbal and food healing are the way to go. These over the counter drugs don’t actually cure or kill any virus or make your immune system stronger. STAY AWAY FROM AFRIN.
