Boosting The Immune System & Dealing with Colds

Since it's the flu season time of year, I thought I'd share some tips that can help boost the immune system.

We keep these supplements on hand for boosting the immunity when the flu is going around:

-Vitamin C
-Vitamin A
-Vitamin D
-Vitamin E

We give Vitamin D to O every day and in the winter the rest of the kiddos normally get Vitamin D on a regular basis as well. Whenever there is a sickness going around, we increase the amount of Vitamin D that O takes from his regular 2000IU/day to 4000-6000IU/day. It makes a big difference in helping him get over the cold.

For some kids, the flu can turn into a bad chest cold, bronchitis or pneumonia. If the cold has turned into a bad chest cold, we will use some of these supplements to help combat the congestion:

-Ridgecrest Herbals ClearLungs (red label)
-Essential Oils, particularly Mom's Remedy.

ClearLungs has made a massive difference for all of our kids if the cold is started to make them real congested. It helps with the congested lungs very, very well.

Mom's Remedy can be used on the bottom of the feet or on the chest like VapoRub would be used. There are also some other essential oils that we have used to help boost the immune system. Heritage Essential Oils has several good oils.

Hopefully these ideas will help some :)!
