Yes “practice” – because it has to be a practice and must be practiced regularly, until those neural networks in our brain and re-wired and we then learn to do it automatically. I think it is the biggest hurdle I have faced myself & continue to face, and the biggest hurdle I witness in those I work with.

Andrographus – my herbal pick for immunity boosting

Andrographus would be my favourite go to herb as a general immune system booster and flu fighter. Specific for chest or head colds and influenza (think chest, throat and head) – I mix this herb with others if sinus infection/congestion or throat pain is present for added targeting. It is specific for fighting virus’s and bacterial illnesses (especially respiratory or upper respiratory) and stealth infections like Lyme and Lyme like disease.

Specific for those who haven’t quite gotten over the flu and still feel vulnerable to re-catching it, or are around people with the flu and wish to prevent it.
