November Topic:
Fall and Winter Immunity

Fall/Winter Immune
Support Basics
Elderberries are particularly rich in flavonoids, especially anthocyanins which are responsible for their deep purple (almost black) coloring. These powerful antioxidants work to keep the immune system strong and resilient. 

The Elderflower is an "anti-catarrhal" herb, meaning it helps prevent excess mucous formation, aids in removing mucous, and also reduces inflammation in the body making it extremely effective for runny noses and congestion. It is also a powerful immune booster and is extremely anti-viral.

Here at A Healthy Horizon we offer the following elderberry products:

  • Organic Elderberry Thyme Syrup -the added thyme is terrific for persistent coughs.
  • Organic Elderberry Echinacea Tea

We also offer 1lb. packages of freeze dried elderberries. Use them to make your own elderberry syrup. 

And now introducing!!

From WyldeWood Cellars:

Vitamin D
Prevent Vitamin D deficiency this fall with a Vitamin D supplement! Sufficient levels of Vitamin D reduce your risk of infectious disease by strengthening your innate immune system. Vitamin D turns on key peptides in your immune system that trigger a strong anti-microbial response, allowing you to quickly, and effectively fight off invaders before they can develop into a full-blown infection.

We carry Carlson's Vitamin D3 in a soft gel and also as drops. We have a large variety of doses, as well.
Iodine is incredibly important for the body. It is the fuel that powers the thyroid, and thus all metabolic activity in the body. Since the immune system relies on the proper functioning of the metabolism to stay strong, Iodine can be incredibly useful in helping to boost your immune system! Various dosages are available to best suit your needs.

Lauricidin is a naturally occurring, non-toxic solution for persistent viral and fungal infections such as herpes, shingles, Epstein Barr, and candida, to name a few.

When used properly it can be one of the most effective tools in your natural arsenal against these stubborn infections as well as cold and flu season since it offers a multitude of benefits to the body and immune system. This fatty acid compound, called monolaurin, has a broad-spectrum effect on the body making it a great defense against a multitude of issues. It works by breaking up the outer coating of harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi, making it safe and effective without the side effects of many drugs used to treat the same conditions.

Lauricidin appears to offer unique benefits over conventional antibiotics due to:
  • Broad-spectrum effects – Effective against many different strains of bacteria, fungi, and viral infections.
  • Fewer side-effects – Generally, Lauricidin is well-tolerated with no serious side effects reported.
  • Considered non-toxic and safe - Nature deemed it safe enough to include in breast milk
  • Inexpensive in comparison to many conventional antibiotics
  • Does not interact with most medications
  • Lacks resistance, in other words, bacteria, viruses, and fungi may not be able to develop resistance and defenses to Lauricidin

Bone Broth
"A good bone broth will resurrect the dead."
-South African Proverb
Meat stocks and broths are extremely nutritious, containing easy-to-digest minerals and electrolytes. It also contains naturally developed gelatin. This type of gelatin is extremely beneficial as a digestive aid and is used successfully to treat many intestinal disorders, including colitis and Crohn's disease, among other non-digestive disorders and conditions. Gelatin-rich broths are also a valued remedy for the flu and overall immunity. An added benefit is that stocks and broths add a rich flavor to our food.
