Our Winter Immune Booster Protocol

The Autumn Winter months are upon us. I'm not completely happy about this. Not only does this mean more inside time with my 3 littles who get bored fast, but it also means more runny noses, coughs, germs, and so on. 

This year I decided to do a "boost" for myself and my 3 kiddos. This is something we take on a daily basis (unless I forget or we are out of town)

1 - No, that isn't a bottle of whiskey haha its Homemade Elderberry syrup.
I use this recipe to make mine 

2 - Double E Immune booster. I buy my herb mix here & make one batch on vegetable glycerin for the kids and one on vodka for the adults (vodka definitely kicks in faster than Veg. Glycerin) 

3 - Local Raw honey mixed with Vitamin C. I purchase my honey locally (its always best to get local, raw unprocessed honey. Otherwise, the health benefits are little to none) and the Vitamin C I recommend is this one

4 - Fermented Cod Liver Oil. Yes, it's fish oil. Yes, its mixed with chocolate. Yes, it's very gross. But my kids seem to like the taste & I try to swallow it with a gulp of water really fast. The health benefits are worth it. This has helped me tremendously with lifting my spirits during gloomy days. I purchase mine from a local health store. I'm sure you can also find it online. 

5 - Garden of Life Vitamin Code kids vitamins. The recommended dose is 2 bears per day. I just give 1 bear for each except for Zeke. He gets only half. 

6 - A small piece of raw garlic in a teaspoon of honey. I tried using minced garlic, but it was too strong, so now I just do a small piece & the kids will most often chew it a few times before swallowing. I think it still has the same effect.
