Thankfully, there are some delicious ways to boost your immune system and help to alleviate colds and flu. Think elderberry syrup, or herbal infused honey. This isn’t medicine, y’all, this is real food that nourishes your body and helps it to fight colds and flu and stay healthy (and it’s yummy on ice cream, too).
And with herbal honey you’re also getting the anti-bacterial properties of the raw honey.
