There is a very informative and great article over at Deep Roots at Home on how to build a Natural Medicine Chest. I don’t normally post a link to another post instead of doing my own post, But I feel the information here needs to be shared. A lot of the things she uses are things I use and some are things I am trying to incorporate into my own medicine chest.
Here is just a small sample of what is in the post
What Ails You?
Vitamin D3 – This power vitamin can often reduce your risk of getting sick in the first place when taken properly. It is estimated that 25 to 50 percent of any healthcare budget could be saved with adequate vitamin D serum levels. The best way to get Vitamin D is outdoor sun, but in winter that is often impossible. For most adults, the daily Vitamin D maintenance dose is above 5,000 IU per day, and for children it is 35 IU per pound of body weight per day.
Chelated Zinc – we take extra zinc first thing when our immune system needs a boost, we are under stress, or on a deadline.
Garlic is a powerful, natural antibiotic. Odorless Garlic softgels are easily taken by children or adults, but fresh is best. When not going out, take 1 big fresh clove, 3 times a day (crush and expose to air for ten minutes before consuming in V8 juice, etc).
In this post, I write about making my own cost-effective, immune-boosting blend of Thieves® Oil. Diffuse it or take it orally.
As you can see there is a lot of information and this is just a small portion of the post.
So if you have a chance go on over to Deep Roots at Home and check it out. By the way this link just goes to her home page so just scroll down to find the article.
