Detoxify Your Medicine Cabinet & A Recipe For Elderberry Syrup

Detoxify Your Medicine Cabinet & A Recipe For Elderberry Syrup

This week we are talking all about how to remove toxins from your medicine cabinet!

"There used to be a time, not too long ago, when people knew how to treat common maladies without taking a drug.  In fact, using drugs may relieve symptoms, but in most cases they inhibit normal body function and cause other health issues.  This is called a “side effect” and every drug has at least one.  The good news is that humans and plants have been living on this world with each other since the beginning and we have learned to use the bounty the natural world provides to help treat common problems like coughs, colds and flu, indigestion, stress and sleep issues, skin problems and much more.  By using natural remedies for “little things” and reducing our toxic load, we prepare our body to respond well to the drugs the doctor prescribes when we have a real problem, like a bad infection, broken bone, surgery or other major medical issue."
