Stay Ahead of Germs this Year

Stay Ahead of Germs this Year

I sent this blog out last August as the kids were preparing to go back to school.  It seems surreal to be sending it out again now that the germs I was referring back then take on a totally different meaning.  And, if you’re in my boat, we really aren’t sure yet when/if we’re actually going back to school…ugh.  Regardless of your child’s start date and regardless of the exact germ we are facing, the following recommendations still apply!

Read the blog over again as a refresher and catch up below on our Functional Friday videos.  If you want to see the videos the day they are posted, follow us on Instagram @RemedyCharleston

Stay healthy and safe,

So, our clients are already starting to come in with Summer colds and the Fall is on it’s way.  I guess it’s already that time of year again.  In our house, this means planning for the start of school.  For some, that just means more traffic in the morning.  But for those that are touched in any way by kids heading back to school, you likely know what’s coming… the petri-dish of germs that accompanies the start of a new school year.

I came up with an Immune Tonic years ago for our family and it worked so well, I began recommending it to clients and now it’s a staple here at Remedy Wellness.  Dr. Kennedy says we need to put it in pretty bags with colorful tissue paper b/c it is the best present you could give anyone.

We’ve been using this blend for our family and clients for many years with great success.  It’s our “go to” remedy and works best at the first sign of illness.  This is the key…. to start at the first sign of illness… and knock it out before it knocks you down.  Of course, here… focusing on prevention is also key.  Keep hands washed, use a hand sanitizer (clean one like EO or Clean and Well), stay hydrated, get consistent with back-to-school bed and wake times and some protein with each meal/snack.

I love this blend because the dose can be modified to suit anyone in the family.  It’s liquid with a pretty good taste.

Dr. Sherri’s Immune Tonic:

Take at the first sign of cold/flu!

Silvercillin: 1 Tbsp
Immunoberry: 2 dropperfuls
D-restore: 10 drops

Mixed together in a small amount of water

Take three times per day for 3 days.

After 3 days, if you need to take longer

Silvercillin: 1 tsp
Immunoberry: 2 dropperfuls
D-restore: 2 drops

Mixed together in a small amount of water

Take once daily (or up to three times per day, depending on severity and improvement).

***dosage varies for children based on age and weight

This has to be said.  While this is a “go to” in our house and for many of our clients, this is clearly not intended to be a substitute for a professional medical diagnosis or treatment.  Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.  Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read here or anywhere else.

We are having a blast with our newly combined and expanded practice, Remedy Wellness.  We thank everyone for your support and encouragement!  We are continuing to bring in new classes and practitioners to keep everyone active and engaged in their health.
