Back To School During COVID - Tips from an herbalist

Fall is in the air.  It's back to school, it's getting ready for cold & flu season, and COVID is in the air. 

Get my herbalist's perspective plus my top TWO TIPS and top TWO GENERAL PRACTICES you can use to stay safe and healthy this fall and winter. 

My Two Herbalist Tips For Back To School During COVID

TIP #1: Why I like adaptogens and avoid immune system stimulants

Watch the video above to see why immune system stimulant herbs can backfire in the long run - and why I prefer adaptogens like reishi, agaricus, cordyceps, chaga, and astragalus.  

Why these other herbs - NOT known for their immune benefit are so important too

Watch the video to see how replenishing your energy reserves - your immune system battery pack backup - can increase your overall immune system success even though the herbs used for this aren't typically thought of as immune tonics - herbs like rehmannia, he shou wu, and eucommia.  

You'll also get my tips on how important it is to choose the right herbs here that are cool or warm depending on what YOUR body needs. 

My Two Top General Practices For Optimal Immune Function


Getting enough sleep and managing stress levels can significantly improve your immune system function.  They just do.   Good digestive health is also a plays a large part in your immune function. 


Having enough Vitamin D not only benefits the immune system it's being shown to be particularly effective against the more serious complications of COVID.
