Boost Your Winter Wellness with These 4 Essential Herbs for Cold and Flu Season

As winter descends, bringing with it significant weather changes, our susceptibility to flu and germs increases. Contrary to common belief, catching a cold or flu can be beneficial if our immune system and overall health are robust. Herbalists approach these seasonal challenges by A) Strengthening the immune system in advance, and B) Facilitating a gentle detox of fevers and colds instead of suppressing them with a pill. Today I will highlight 4 Essential herbs for cold and flu season which will readily prepare you for the season ahead!

  1. Stinging Nettle Leaf

Stinging nettle leaf proves to be an incredible ally during seasonal transitions. Alongside personalized herbal protocols, clients are introduced to the astonishing benefits of stinging nettle, a recommendation to be included in their routine every 3-4 weeks with each change of season. Packed with a comprehensive vitamin and mineral profile, nettles cleanse and oxygenate the blood. Particularly effective as a pre-winter boost, stinging nettle leaf is ideal for those who struggle to incorporate enough veggies into their diet. A quick and efficient way to consume it is by adding 10 drops to a 1/4 cup of water and drinking it rapidly.

  1. Echinacea

Introducing Echinacea a bit earlier in the fall, specifically during September and October, aids the body in a seamless transition. Extensively studied for its potent healing qualities against colds and flu, Echinacea contains Cichoric Acid, a key chemical component responsible for its efficacy. Beyond immune support, Echinacea also fights free radicals, alleviates stress and anxiety, providing holistic nurturing for the entire body.

  1. Hawthorn Berry

Resembling a bear in hibernation, hawthorn berry functions as a tonic remedy, nourishing the heart during times of depletion and overwhelm, whether physical or emotional. Known for improving circulation, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, hawthorn acts as a cardiac tonic, enhancing the health of the heart muscle. Rich in vitamins such as vitamin C and amino acids, hawthorn is a valuable ally during the cold and flu season, particularly beneficial for those experiencing stress, grief, or overload during the holidays.

  1. St. John’s Wort

In drop doses, St. John’s Wort proves effective in dispelling the winter blues, especially for individuals prone to seasonal affective disorder or those with limited access to daylight during winter months. Often complementing Vitamin D supplementation, just a drop or two of St. John’s Wort can lift the spirits, providing a natural remedy for the emotional challenges associated with the colder seasons.This makes St. John’s wort a superb essential herb during cold and flu season.

Immunity = Self Love

Building immunity energetically requires an abundance of self-love. As the weather undergoes shifts, listen to your authentic self, stay true to your essence, and treat your body and soul as a temple. Nourish yourself with wholesome foods, stay hydrated, and cultivate positive thoughts.
