"What's in my Medicine Cabinet" - Cold and Flu Season Prep
For those of you who have been around Mountain Mama for a while you know that the woman who runs the show around here is Julie Sasinka. She has been apart of the business since she was a little peanut! Having spent so much time in this industry, she knows what works! Here is what she has to say about how to handle that first tickle of a cold!
Nothing is worse then starting to come down with something or having one of your kiddos showing first signs of illness and not having what you need on hand. This started me thinking, "what can I not live without in my medicine cabinet?" There are so many fantastic products out there, and of course everybody's body reacts differently but these are the products I can't live without!!!!
1) Host Dense Myco Shield Spray- my favorite when you get that first tickle in your throat.
2) Honeybee Garden Elderberry Syrup- paired with the above it's a one,two punch to whatever is coming your way. Tastes good, so easy to give to kids over two ( contains honey).
3) Megafood Acute Defense- this brand new to market product has already impressed me immensely! To be used at first sign of symptoms mix the packet with juice or water. I have already seen it work miracles on several occasions. Warning! It is very bitter and tastes terrible. I get it down anyway I can since it works so well, anything to not be sick. Probably hard to give to small kids due to the taste. An alternate product is Gaia's Quick Defense.
4) Wishgarden Kick Ass Immune- this long time favorite for many is always on hand just in case. Also available in a kids formula ( alcohol free).
The above products work best when you are just starting to feel under the weather, it's best to strike early and swiftly. These are my absolute favorites! Here's hoping you and yours a "crud free" winter season! - Julie
