Back to School! My #1 Natural Immune Support Solution
By Dr. Dave Steuer
Where did the summer go?? While I’m sad to say goodbye to the sunshine and long summer days, I am looking forward to some cooler weather. It’s been a hot one this year!
September doesn’t just mean cooler weather though…. September means back to school and back to school means cold and flu season is about to begin.
This year especially, as our kids head back to school, we are doing everything we can to support their immune systems. Over the years, popular trends have suggested a million different natural solutions for immune support—vitamin C, echinacea, garlic, zinc, apple cider vinegar—the list is endless.
From my own research and from personal experience, there is one product that has become my #1 secret weapon for natural immune support: doTERRA On Guard®
I have investigated at the ingredients and the scientific claims behind this super supplement and I can say with full confidence that it is one of the best products out there.
It has been shown to improve cellular health, reduce the effects of infection, and inhibit microbial disease. Using it daily helps increase healing and prevent some aspects of disease and inflammation. As a bonus, it also helps regulate the surge of insulin and will reduce the effects of cravings, sugar issues, and secondary inflammation.
Here are a few ideas to work this amazing oil into your daily routine:
· Diffusion: Use three to four drops daily in a diffuser.
· Topical Use: Apply one to two drops to your hands or the bottoms of your feet. (Note- Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.)
· Internal Use: Use 2 drops at least 4 times a day in a glass of water (1 drop per 4 fl oz), drop directly under the tongue, or combine with organic honey in a small spoon if you don’t like the taste.
