Cold & Flu Herbal Tea Infusion
With cold and flu season in full swing, we wanted to share one of our favorite herbal infusions to help combat some of the symptoms that go along with both of these.
In today’s culture, many have come to fear fevers. Fevers are actually our body’s way of activating our immune system. Turning them off can make the individual more comfortable for the moment, but it may lead to the illness becoming more chronic and taking longer to resolve.
Each time that there is a small increase in temperature, this creates a massive increase in white blood cell production. When this happens, it activates the existing immune cells to become aggressive towards the invading organisms.
For common fevers we use this recipe to help keep the individual comfortable, while allowing the herbs to assist in fighting the illness along with the body.
