Preparing for Illness

As Fall comes to an end and Winter draws near I become increasingly aware of the coming illnesses that could creep into my home. With that thought I could run out and purchase a variety of cold remedies from the store shelf or I can choose to care for my family's needs in another way. As my family moves to a more natural lifestyle I am constantly seeking out healthier alternatives. Here are a few tips shared by other bloggers:

I hope you find a new remedy for your family in the selections above or on your own. We keep a variety of natural tinctures around our home and have found that when paired with an organic whole foods diet we are less likely to become sick or stay sick for very long.
