*Immune booster can be used for 10 days, resting for 2 days, and then
resumed. This keeps the body from
resisting the herbal properties afforded in the Booster and helps the herbs
work at their maximum potential.

- Echinacea purpura (otherwise known as Coneflower):
Helps to strengthen or boost your immune system and fights viral AND
bacterial infections. Inhibits the enzyme hyaluronidase, which is known
to cause strep A (“strep throat”) and prevents tissue invasion by the
bacteria, while also killing the strep cells. This herb alone would do
well to prevent and aid in battles with allergic rhinitis/hay fever;
lyme's disease; strep throat (as mentioned above); laryngitis;
hepatitis; and, any other common cold. It also helps to prevent illness
if taken regularly*.
- Echinacea Angustifolia root: Known to boost the
immune system by treating colds, flu’s, and fighting infections. It has
also been used to speed wound healing, and reduce inflammation. It has a
long and intriguing history of use as an antiseptic, an analgesic, and
to treat poisonous insect and snakebites, toothaches, sore throat,
wounds, and communicable diseases such as mumps, smallpox, and measles.
It has also been touted as a blood purifier. Many research studies done
by doctors all over the world indicated that Echinacea Angustifolia root
is effective primarily by increasing the number of white blood cells,
thus boosting the immune system and thereby increasing the body's
ability to fight infection.
- Stinging Nettles. A wonderful addition to our
immune booster for the many benefits it has to the body’s systems.
Nettles are known to help reduce allergies, cleanse the blood, reduce
inflammation, relieve pain, stimulate digestion, soothe stomach
irritation, kill germs, lower body temperature, and expel foreign
toxins. All of these properties work well with the two forms of
Echinacea making this formula wonderful for both types of flu
(intestinal and viral) as well as all other infections and colds.
- Peppermint. Is a hybrid of spearmint and water
mint and was first cultivated in England around the beginning of the
eighteenth century. It is most commonly used as a digestive remedy to
treat heartburn, diarrhea, flatulence, and intestinal cramps. It has
also become a popular treatment for nausea and vomiting due to morning
sickness. We use peppermint in our formula for its ability to alleviate
respiratory infections; to promote proper liver and gallbladder
function; to regulate digestion because of its calming effect on the
smooth muscle of the digestive tract; and, for its ability to relieve
nasal congestion caused by colds, flu, and allergies.
