One of the countless benefits of colloidal silver, is that it strengthens the immune system. It has been medically documented that people who tend to have slightly higher levels of silver in their body tend to get the flu less. Also, should they do catch the flu, they heal much quicker.



Fields of herbs have always been the medicine cabinet of native peoples. Herbs are powerful in their medicinal value and are very effective in helping to heal the symptoms of colds and flu’s. Some of the herbs which are used in the strengthening of the immune system and the fighting off of flu viruses are;

  • Yarrow
  • Elderberry
  • Echinacea
  • Rosemary
  • Boneset
  • Eucalyptus



Some super foods to strengthen the immune system and help to fight off bacteria and viruses are garlic, lemon, ginger and honey. Aim to eat 1-2 big cloves of garlic when you have the flu. If the taste is too strong for you to handle then chop the garlic and put it on some toast with butter or in a pasta dish.

A hot drink made of lemon, honey and ginger can help boost your immune system, soothe your throat and help with a cough.
