Merry Christmas to all!!! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving week with all your friends and family.  Since it is the start of December cod and flu season is in full force here is one more herb for strengthening the immune system.
  Echinacea, also known as the purple coneflower, has bee traditionally used for centuries t treat infections and injuries; it's known for it antiviral and antimicrobial activities, and its ability to support immune system function. Though research is mixed, many studies suggest the Echinacea reduces the adaptogenic (or stress reducing) effects, which may enhance immune system activity in the long run. Look for it in capsules, teas, lozenges, or standardized extracts, either alone or in combination with goldenseal, green tea, astragalus.

Fresh garlic bulbs are a cornucopia of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and sulphur compounds that produce the pungent taste and odour, and almost most of the medicinal properties. A clove of garlic, with all the constituents intact, is undoubtedly more effective than an apple a day in keeping the doctor away. Thousands of papers have been published on garlic over the past 20 years. Results support the traditional use of garlic as an anti-infective for both bacterial and viral infections, especially of the respiratory tact and digestive system.  Garlic is also useful expectorant for bronchial and nasal congestion.
Garlic is a great herb for so many uses, to many to list.

Since the Cold and Flu season is HERE!! I thought it would be good to let you know about some herb for the season.
Elderberry has been used for years to fight colds and flu; it's high in anthocyamns, antioxidants that protect the cells from damage and activate the immune response.
Studies have confirmed the antiviral properties of elderberry, and suggest that taking elderberry at the first sign of illness can substantially shorten the duration of flu, and may be especially effective in treating upper respiratory tract infections.  Look for it in lozenges, capsules, syrups (my fav), alone or in combination with other herbs.
Be sure to check by next week for anther cold and flu herb.

Yarrow: Traditionally yarrow was a wound herb. It is actually quite effective in stopping bleeding-worth remembering if you are on a hike and need some first aid. For this purpose, crush the leaves, or chew the before applying, to release the astringent juices.  When taken internally, yarrow lowers fever and is often recommended, combined with elderflower and peppermint, for the early stage of col and flu. also use with other herb to help lower blood pressure after a stroke or heart attack.
