What we put into our bodies makes a HUGE difference in how we Feel and Live our lives.
The food we eat obviously plays an incredibly important role in how we feel and how healthy our physical body is. But if we want to feel our best and avoid sickness as much as possible, we also want to jump on the supplement bandwagon!
The first week of this New Year, starting with New Year’s Eve, I had a pretty intense cold and flu– knocking me off my feet and requiring me to cancel several engagements I’d been looking forward to.
“No more getting sick!” I told myself. “I must boost my immune system so this doesn’t happen again!!”
So what did I do? I reached out to my wonderful Facebook community, of course! I asked for their most powerful natural & holistic tips to boost my immunity. I received TONS of great tips and feedback, so I figured I’d share the wealth of knowledge with you!
Top 10 Immune Boosters
suggested by my community:
1. Elderberry (Can be taken as a syrup or pill supplement)

Dee’s Secret Magic Brew: (Though not so secret anymore! Muahaha!)
“I never measure anything…add to your taste. All these ingredients have amazing benefits:
Bring to a boil:
Bone broth (store bought if needed)
Himalayan Pink sea salt
Note: That is the base. I add things depending on how I feel….usually kale, spinach, noodles (for substance). I also sometimes do a Mix of carrots, onions and celery first.”
Christina’s Oregano Fix:
“Create a steam of boiled oregano! Sweet and simple old Greek remedy.”
Shannon’s Health Elixir:
“If I feel a little tinge of something coming on, I boil the heck out of some cut up limes and lemons in some water and then add honey and maybe some cayenne and chug it over the course of the day. It really does the trick!”
Brianna’s Spicy Super-Immunity Drink:
“Boil shaved ginger pieces, a teaspoon of cinnamon, shaved tumeric, and juice of one lemon for 10 minutes in a kettle.” Yum!
