Strengthen your defences, naturally.

Studies have shown that taking Echinacea at the onset of a cold can reduce the length and severity of symptoms as much as 1-4 days!  And taking it in defense of a cold can reduce the odds of developing a cold by 58%!!

Echinacea is obtainable in many forms: juice, tablets, tea, tinctures…  I personally use and recommend Echinacea Premium tablets by MediHerb. This company uses a unique method of extraction to produce some of the best quality herbal products in the world. Echinacea Premium can be purchased with a written prescription at Season’s Fine Supplements & Organic Juice Bar in Fort Langley. Contact me at 604-888-8325 to get your prescription today.

Note: Echinacea should not be taken if you have an allergy to ragweed or any plant in the daisy family, or if you are taking heart or anti-fungal medications.
