Four ways to keep a really cute inflammation (acute inflammation – your body fighting invaders) i.e.—> a healthy Immune System-
Herbs for Immunity & Healing – ginger, turmeric, paprika, cayenne, garlic, elderberry – think accumulative effect. Not instant healing. Keep them in your daily diet.

The appeal of safe, natural treatments is undeniable. It’s true for age-old conditions such as the common cold, and for new diseases, especially if they have no known cure. So it makes sense that there would be a lot of interest in supplements for COVID-19, whether as prevention or treatment.

Fire Cider Recipe: Keep This In Your Fridge!!!! It’s MAGICAL. It works because the vinegar infusion encourages the herbs to release healthy minerals and beneficial compounds.
What is Fire Cider?
It’s a spicy, elixir that’s made by infusing apple cider vinegar with powerful antioxidant, immune-supporting, lymph moving, circulation stimulating, and digestion enhancing fresh herbs. Here’s how to make it! 🙂
Ginger root (Zingiber officinale)
Once very expensive but now widely available and affordable, ginger root has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years to soothe tummy complaints such as nausea, morning sickness, gas, and indigestion.
Also according to Penn State Medical Center, it has also history of use in helping to ease “the common cold, flu-like symptoms, headaches, and painful menstrual periods.”
Horseradish root (Armoracia rusticana)
Rich in folate and a compound called sinigrin, studies have found that horseradish helps the body break up congestion and calms inflammation.
Turmeric root (Curcuma longa)
The main constituent in turmeric root, curcumin, has been shown to exhibit “antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal” and other properties.
Onion (Allium cepa)
Loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C and quercetin plus minerals like potassium and sulfur, onions are amazing for supporting digestive health and immune function.
Garlic (Allium sativum)
According to many studies ( including my own)The benefits of garlic to health have been proclaimed for centuries;I put that root on EVERYTHING!
In other words, modern research is beginning to validate garlic’s use as a folk remedy for immune support. Specifically, the study found that garlic supported balanced immune and inflammatory processes
Jalapeno (Capsicum annuum)
Hot peppers such as jalapeno (or Carolina Reaper if you’re feeling brave) are rich in capsaicin, which assists the body in managing inflammation.
Lemon (Citrus limon)
Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which supports immune function. This recipe also incorporates the rind, which draws out a compound called limonene that has mood lifting, digestion supporting, and immune system benefits.
If you’re not using organic lemons, leave the rind off! Conventional lemons may have absorbed pesticide residue that can’t be washed off.
Optional Ingredient: Black Peppercorns (Piper nigrum)
Rich in antioxidants such as piperine, black pepper increases the absorption of other nutrients and help the body manage inflammation. They may also play a role in brain health.
Optional Ingredient: Rosemary or Thyme (Rosmarinus officinalis or Thymus vulgaris)
Both of these herbs have long been used in folk remedies to support healthy respiratory and immune function.
