I am often looking for the most holistic, yet effective remedies to stave off the many germs my kids bring home. I've studies herbalism and I'm consistently impressed with how effective simple herbs can be at treating all kinds of ills. Elderberry syrup has hit main stream consciousness and everyone and their mamas are using it to fight off and reduce the duration of viruses. I have found that Fire Cider, though less well known, is an incredibly potent elixir that can help fight those nasty bugs. Fire Cider is a popular herbal folk remedy. The tasty combination of vinegar infused with herbs is an especially pleasant yet spicy and easy way to boost natural health processes, stimulate digestion, and get you nice and warmed up on cold days. Here's a great recipe adapted from Mountain Rose Herbs. And if you don't want to put in the effort you can buy it pre-made HERE.
