I have long used what nature provides to help heal most ills that come my way. I am a big fan of dōTERRA® Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade CPTG® essential oils. Most often I am able to fend off or ride out the storm of any virus that comes my way; don’t get me wrong, I am not saying stay away from medical help if you feel you need that. If I can calm my mind and be pro-active when symptoms first appear, assess whats going on, find what to apply to my symptoms, and liberally medicate with natural remedies more often than not my outbreak is less severe and my down time is greatly improved. Also there is something extremely empowering about healing yourself.
A few key elements to all of this is to listen daily to how you feel, make sure you are on quality supplements to boost your well-being and feed your body real food. Rest is paramount to staying healthy and to healing.If you are tired then take a nap and if that isn’t possible go to bed early and get some extra sleep. If you have a runny nose or a tickley throat listen and feed the body things that it can use to heal and combat the intruders. Stay away from sugars and foods that feed viruses and bacterias and load up on homemade healing soups, teas and lighter foods that don’t required too much digestive energy. Your body needs to focus most of its energy on interior combat and it can perform that task well if you let it.

Other than my oils I always have on hand a box of cold calm by Boiron. They also have a super line of products you should check them out as well.
Another staple that is good year round is organic throat coat tea. You can add some local organic raw honey and a drop or two of the lemon oil above and you have yourself a great little cold tonic and you can feel the healing of all that you are feeding your body.
