Your immune system needs certain things to run properly and help your body stay healthy. Though you do need to make sure you are hydrated, calm, and keeping that gut healthy, you also need as much assistance as in natural support to make healing as simple as possible for your immune system. One way you can do this is by using herbs that support your immune system. Here are a few of my favorites!
Elderberry is a plant, but considered to be an herbal remedy by many sources. The berry from the elderberry tree can be dehydrated and added to teas, used in a tea directly, or can be mixed with other herbs to help fight colds and flu symptoms. In addition to the normal assistance the elderberry gives to help reduce sore throats and cold symptoms, it also has heavy anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation throughout the body. This can help reduce aches and pains in your system as well, which leads to better sleep and fatigue relief.
Andrographis is an herb that is indigenous to India. This herb is known as a natural antibiotic and used by millions around the world as an alternative to over the counter or prescribed options. It can help with the immune system and help to combat fevers and sore throats. It can also help with minor infections in the body like tooth infections and ear infections. This herb should only be taken short term (up to 3 months according to WebMD) though, so take only when you need it.
Ginger is a root herb that is used for sore throats and stomach issues. You can use ginger in several ways including in teas, as a powder form, and in juices and smoothies. It does have a spice effect to it that gives a heat. For a fully boosting effective option, mix the ginger with fresh squeezed orange juice to give a strong boost and toxin fighting option for your cold or flu and to boost your immune system reaction.
Honeysuckle is a plant that grows in most areas during the early spring and summer months. Honeysuckle flowers can be used to help boost the immune system and aid in fighting against migraines, sinus issues, and sinus relief. It can easily be dehydrated and used in teas throughout the year. In fact, most people who use honeysuckle tend to harvest it in large quantities and then dehydrate it for use later on since it only grows for a short time.
Though you can get these herbs in pill or capsule form, the best option is to go with something natural. If you can, go with a whole herb that is either fresh or grown in your own home, as this will give you the most benefit from the herbs for your system.
