It’s that time of the year when doctors and the news channels are all pushing flu shots. They say this is going to be the worst year ever. Everyone should get a flu shot.
I have never gotten a flu shot, no one in my household has ever gotten a flu shot and I don’t remember anyone ever getting the flu. I personally have had the flu two times that I can remember. Once in my late teens and again in my adulthood but I don’t remember when, it’s been a while.
My cold/allergy/flu preventative is my Super Healthy Tea. Along with some basic healthy living, we are able to build our immune system to stand up against colds, allergies and even the flu. As soon as I start hearing adds for flu shots, I start adding more of this:
Drink plenty of fluids. Water, warm tea, chicken soup and OJ with a little ACV.
Get plenty of rest. 7-8 hours a night is suggested for adults.
A healthy diet. Eating a good variety of mostly raw and real foods with limited processed foods, sugars and very limited fast food if at all.
Exercise. It can be a daily walk, bike ride, tennis…whatever gets us moving and gets our heart rate up a little.
Here are some other natural immune booster remedies I’ve come across:

1 cup either powdered salt, Borax or Diatomaceous Earth
20 drops of essential oils
Pour powder into a bowl being careful not to inhale. If using salt, you’ll have to grind it first. I use a coffee grinder.
Add 20 drops off various essential oils. The best oils for flea treatments are lemon, rosemary, citronella, cedar, peppermint and geranium.
Pour into an airtight container. Something with a shaker top would work well.
Sprinkle lightly all over carpet ,on and under furniture and cushions, in areas where pets lay and in pet beds.
You can leave it longer in places like behind furniture and under cushions that are not accessible to people, kids and small pets.
*As with all powders, be careful not to inhale while mixing and pouring.
