With all our children starting up school sports again, we thought it might be a good time to introduce a great recipe for a sports drink that doesn't contain high fructose corn syrup or dyes!
Let's elevate our immune systems so we do not have to miss time from work and school to recuperate. Remember, the thought is all about preventative health care. Our proven recommendation?
Adult - Daily:
2 DoTerra On Guard essential oil soft gels
1 oz Elderberry Syrup
1 drop DoTerra Frankincense essential oil
1000 mg Liquid Vitamin C
5,000 iu Liquid Vitamin D
2 capsules XEOmega or Blue Bonnet Brain Blend
For children, use On Guard essential oil and Frankincense on the child's feet daily instead of the soft gels, in addition to the remainder of the above protocol.
Elderberry Syrup Instructions:
Place all ingredients except honey plus 8 cups room temperature filtered water in a sauce pan for 10 minutes. Turn the heat on; bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for approximately five minutes. Stir often and mash up the berries. Allow to sit overnight to steep into a good strength. Strain. Add the honey. The more honey that is added makes it more syrup like and sweet. Label & store in an amber bottle or glass mason jar for up to 3 months in the refrigerator. Take 2tsp every 2 hours for children and 2 oz every 2-3 hours for adults to heal or 1 oz daily to prevent illness.
Elder berries are known to be effective against 8 strains of influenza. In a clinical trial, 20% of subjects reported significant improvement of symptoms within 24 hours, 70% within 48 hours, & 90% claimed complete cure in 3 days.
