Feeling run down and that you are coming down with something? Stop the Flu or a Cold fast with this Immunity Boost healing drink.
I woke up with a sore throat and congestion the other morning– and that “oh no! I’ve been tagged by one of “those bugs ” feeling… Great!
So, I immediately headed to my FARMacy cabinet and pulled out a few goodies. Let’s see:
- Ginger ✔
- Honey ✔
- Elderberry Syrup ✔(this is what I use)
- Goldenseal/Echinacea tincture ✔(I like this one)
Then all of a sudden… what do I see in my arsenal of packaged natural remedies? Ah ha! Immune strength 5 defenders by Real Mushrooms– Whaaaa? Now we are in business!
I knew I had a chance to get through my day. I received a couple of samples from real mushrooms and remembered I had a bag of 5 defenders. Bingo.. Time to head to the lab aka “my kitchen” ha!
Yes, now I will be able to say goodbye to this virus hopefully within 48 hours…
I am not kidding you. I drank healing elixir in the am and by the next day in the late-afternoon, I was feeling so much better. Yes, that is how effective it is.
