[dropcaps style=”square”]D [/dropcaps]o you struggle with frequent colds and flu? Millions of people stay laid up in bed four, five, sometimes ten times a year and never seem to be able to fully recover. This is often a sign of a weakened immune system or an over-reactive immune system that struggles to understand what to fight off and what to leave alone. Prescription, over-the-counter, and most herbal remedies do not treat the source of frequent sickness. Cordyceps and other healing medicinal mushrooms do.
Frequent Colds and Flu Caused by Depressed Immune System
Frequent colds and flu is often a sign that your immune system is not functioning optimally. This could be due to poor diet, nutrient deficiencies, stress, lack of sufficient rest, and certain prescription medications. For example, when you come down with a serious illness such as a pneumonia or a sinus infection, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics.
While this will get rid of the infection, it will weaken your immune system by killing not only the bad bacteria in your system but the good as well. This can further reduce your resistance to infection, which can leave you vulnerable to developing even more colds and flu.
If you look to over-the-counter cold and flu remedies, these products will temporarily relieve your symptoms but will not shorten the duration of your sickness or prevent recurrence. Furthermore, many of these over-the-counter remedies contain additives and preservatives that could be harmful to your health.
Boost Your Immunity Naturally with Cordyceps Medicinal Mushrooms
Medicinal mushrooms are unlike many of the over-the-counter and herbal remedies you may have tried before. Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms are the most valued herb in traditional Chinese medicine. These medicinal mushrooms provide powerful free radical scavenging activity and boost your T-cells to keep your immune system strong. Cordyceps have also been shown to have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties to shorten the duration of colds and flu.
Medicinal mushrooms are classified as ‘adaptogens’ because they help your body cope with everyday stresses. Furthermore, they also work to suit your system’s own individual needs. For example, if your immune system isn’t strong enough, these mushrooms will give it a boost. If your immune system is over-reactive, in the case of allergies and autoimmune disease, the mushrooms will help stabilize it.
Cordyceps, as well as other healing medicinal mushrooms such as reishi, lion’s mane, shiitake, and maitake, provide protein and essential vitamins and minerals that keep your immune system strong and may even prevent the development of cancer.
Don’t just cover up the symptoms of frequent colds and flu or worsen it by becoming dependent on antibiotics. Boost your immune system and heal your body from the inside out with medicinal mushrooms.
