Healthy food for winter

This post describes what immune system foods you should try, especially if you get a lot of colds.

Yuck, it’s that time of the year again.  Last year I had three colds and this year I am going to make sure I don’t get too many.  There is something called echinacea and goldenseal tincture.  It’s a liquid that you can put into your OJ once a day.  Warning…it tastes awful at first but helps ward off colds before you get them. Goldenseal is a natural antibiotic, just as garlic is.  You can find this stuff in any health store, don’t take it for more than 4 weeks at a time or it will lose its effectiveness.

I have just discovered something called lemon and ginger shots.  Take fresh lemon and ginger and mix half and half.  You only need about four ounces per day.  I was shopping at the mall the other day and Booster Juice was selling these shots for 5 dollars a pop.  It’s so easy to make your own.  Both ginger and lemon are superfoods and help boost your immune system.

Another good mix of healthy enzymes is fresh tomatoes and onion and add a little bit of water–I make a juice.  Two more superfoods!

Last but not least, is mushrooms.  If you don’t like them (I don’t), you can take a supplement.  Red mushrooms are of the highest quality.

Tea is great at this time of the year.  Try chamomile and mint.  I grow echinacea, so I add the leaves, flowers, and roots to the tea.

All of these mentioned are cancer beaters too.
