Herbs to Boost Your Immune System

“Expressing your human need for ongoing spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional nourishment starts in your home.”
― Linda L. Eubanks

As you begin to take better care of your self, natural remedies for your immune system range from using essential oils to changing your daily habits. Another great way to give your immunities a nice boost is with certain herbs. Here are some of the top healing herbs that can help you fight off the viruses.

Echinacea

You will not find this recommendation surprising, as Echinacea has long been associated with boosting your immune system and helping to prevent the cold and flu. Echinacea is an herb that contains natural antibacterial and antiviral properties. These properties help you to fight viruses and illnesses, as they can boost white blood cell production in your body. White blood cells are needed to help fight infections as you come into contact with them.

Elderberry

Another herb, found to be really healing for your body and help to boost your immune system at the same time is elderberry. Elderberry is a unique herb that is very healing, helping to fight off different types of infections, including influenza (flu) virus, bacterial infections, and viral infections. There have been numerous studies looking at its effectiveness for your immune system. You can use different parts of this herb, from the flowers to the leaves and even the bark.

Calendula

The next herb to be mindful of is called calendula. Calendula is one of those herbs where the name sounds familiar, but people aren’t fully aware of what it is or how it can benefit them. Calendula is a plant with healing flower petals that look similar to marigold flowers. These have been used for many medicinal purposes, as they naturally reduce inflammation, fight bacteria, and contain natural antioxidants. Calendula when appropriately used can help prevent your body from free radical damage, which can also in turn help to improve your immune system. Needs recipe here.

Green Tea

While not technically an herb, the leaves used in green tea are also fantastic for your immunities and helping to avoid the cold and flu. Green tea is also a good source of antioxidants, as well as boosting your immune system to keep away infections and viruses. Try to drink 2-3 cups of green tea a day. The good news here is that green tea has a lot of other health benefits as a bonus, from aiding in your weight loss efforts to improving your skin.
