Supporting Your immune system

I thought we would post a little evidence-based article from the NIH about some things you can do for yourself. My position is that the best approach to the pandemic is to be as healthy, prepared, and positive as possible. We are, after all, who you turn to long before you go to the emergency room! Remember that enough sleep and nurturing your happiness is as important as “eating the right things”!

Note that while elderberry/sambucus and other supplementation is great BEFORE you get sick, please cease taking it if you get ill. In East Asian medicine this principle is long regarded, that we do not tonify the body at the same time we are trying to expel a pathogen or fight an illness. The exception might be for long term illnesses and very weak patients. For most of us, it’s best to switch gears for the changing circumstances.
