Today’s Theme: Immune System Health
Read about today’s theme and then answer the question to enter the daily contest.
Naturopathic Doctors are well versed in botanical medicine and can help choose herbs for you according to your health concerns.
Immune stimulating herbs help you mount an immune response and attack a virus in the present. These can prevent a cold or flu if taken on onset, or can shorten the duration.
Immune modulating herbs such as Astragalus and medicine mushrooms build immune cells to better protect you longterm. These can be taken for chronic colds, autoimmune conditions, or even cancer therapy.
Autoimmune conditions which are becoming more common, such as Crohns, Hashimotos thyroiditis or Lupus may benefit from other antiinflammatory herbs such as turmeric.
