What Our Naturopath Monica Says

The Flu Fighter

Elderberries are commonly called the flu fighter for a reason. Their properties work by blocking the virus from entering the cell itself with researchers even suggesting it protects against the swine flu. 

As a naturopath and master herbalist what might I use elderberry for? 

Colds, acute infections with fever and hot dry skin, headache and nausea, rhinitis, asthma, croup, hay fever, conjunctivitis, rheumatism, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, stomatitis to name a few. 

It’s natural high vitamin c content makes it useful in supporting mast cells and promoting wound healing. 

It also has carminative and laxative properties making it easier excellent for supporting nervous system and digestive health particularly in children. 

With no contraindications meaning it is safe with other medications and supplements, along with a long history of traditional use, it is a valuable asset in the home medicine cupboard in every household. 

Elderberry Blends Australia use local, honest, high quality ingredients with the utmost integrity in an industry where we must be cautious, it is for this reason that I absolutely recommend their products. 

Prevention is better than cure.
