When the Flu wages war on you there is a way to fight back with nature. The Elderberry is a great flu fighter. It is used to boost the immune system. It’s not only for the flu, but for tackling pain that comes from the sinus, back, and leg. The great thing is that it’s not just for adults. It’s safe for kids, but as always, check with their doctor because each child is different. Elderberry syrup can be taken during the week, so hopefully you won’t have to deal with the flu or other common colds you get in class and work.
Allergies love to reek havoc on your sinuses. The syrup can help with the pain that is associated with the sinus. It will not help with an allergy emergency. Since they contain flavonoids, it can help prevent damage to your body’s cells. They are also high in A, B, and C, vitamins.
You can purchase Elderberry syrup already made, or you can make your own. If you don’t have the ingredients on hand you can purchase them here. It’s very important to know that you should never eat the berries raw. Only purchase your ingredients through a trusted source. You can always just purchase the syrup already made up, and will cost usually around $15. A great price compared to suffering and going to the doctor. As always, even if you are taking the syrup, and your symptoms get worst go to your doctor and make sure your doctor knows you have been using the syrup.
It’s very important to treat any natural treatment like a formal medical treatment. You can overdose on any herb, and it’s very important to read the direction and used as intended.
*Always check with your doctor before trying a new herbal remedy. Some herbs or plants may conflict with your current prescription.
