[UPDATED 16 APRIL 2020: With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's even more important to have a strong immune system. Though this guide was written with the "traditional" winter cold & flu season in mind, these herbs can continue to support a healthy immune system any time of year. I've updated this article to include new info-graphics to make sharing of this info even easier. In regard to the use of Elder berry and flower, while herbalists believe that for most individuals elderberry is safe before infection, it may be that it should be avoided if symptoms develop. Elderberry may also not be safe for some individuals with autoimmune conditions]
I'm excited to bring to you a brief overview of the seven herbs I've found to be most effective and helpful to bolster health and well-being during the shortest days of the year, which typically coincide with the cold & flu season.
