Tips on keeping your Immunity Up during Flu Season!

I am lucky that my son and I haven’t gotten too terribly ill in his whole three years of life. Every time I spot a runny nose, I try to hit it hard with all the healthy natural items before turning to medicine. Of course, if I felt like it was serious enough, I would go to the Doctor right away. I feel great when my toddler son eats all this healthy food to help fight off a new sickness.

Add Ginger, Garlic, Turmeric, Lemon, and Bone Broth to Soups

I put all of this into a Chicken Soup. I try to use fresh ingredients when I can even if that means chopping in large chunks. You could even add honey for a little sweetness. My son and I usually eat this with white rice. I will often just put chicken and broth in his, since he isn’t a big fan of most vegetables. I also mix a little bone broth in with my soups for health. Still use mostly chicken broth, but bone broth has some positive health effects too.

Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice for Vitamin C

We also have a juicer that we can juice ourselves, but if me and the little one are both sick, I will by already juiced at our grocery store HEB. Eating oranges and fruit are another great option. I like to make smoothies with orange juice and other fresh fruits, like blueberries, strawberries and banana. I will even mix some Elderberry syrup in there with my smoothie. You can also supplement with extra vitamin C in different ways!

Elderberry Syrup

I take a spoonful of this or a couple to help boost immunity. I think the syrup is better than the gummies, in just trying to get closer to the natural source. One day I will make my own, because this stuff is pricey! I don’t like the after taste on this one, maybe it’s the Echinacea mixed in.

Vitamins

My son and I both take a multivitamin now. Me taking a multivitamin and extra Vitamin D was great when he was breastfeeding more frequently, and he could get some vitamins that way. I take the Garden of Life Vitamin and my son takes the Zarbee’s for children. He just recently started taking multivitamin gummies close to 2.5 years old.

Probiotics

I have a probiotic I take too, and I have a probiotic for my son that I mix into his smoothies when he is sick (especially if it is like a stomach/diarrhea issue). I take the RenewLife (refrigerate) and I will mix in the SeekingHealth ProBiota Infant. I bought this when my son was having some stomach issues that were lasting a little too long. It seemed to really help.
