This past week here in Oklahoma City, it was foggy and misty - it felt like it was several days in a row. Since we live in the city, we certainly felt the smog-like conditions. It seems silly that it should affect much of anything, but in our house it seemed to affect everything! I really believe the culprit was in the air. With recent allergy flair ups on top of usual city air pollution trapped by the fog and such, it makes it harder to breathe freer. Anyway, it seemed to mess everything up from how we felt physically to our moods and mental clarity in general!
I didn't realize the correlation until it was mostly gone, but the effect seemed to be lingering. And the reason I'm sharing any of this is because there is an herbal combination that I've used (for years) that helps so much with circumstances like this. Once we started it, the symptoms began to diminish significantly!
What's in it: Parthenium root, yarrow aerial parts, myrrh gum and capsicum fruit.

Why it's helpful: This herbal formula helps meet the nutritional needs of a stressed immune system and is particularly helpful to the circulatory system, which benefits the lymphatic system. When the body encounters harmful contaminants (think lawn chemicals, car exhaust, pesticides, etc.) in any form, it can stress the immune system. This combination is a great immune booster, giving the body what it needs to eliminate the problem with few physical effects.
I'm so thankful that I have such an arsenal of resources in herbs, vitamins, homeopathics, essential oils and home remedies to assist with the complicated landscape our bodies have to deal with. As with anything you put in your body, it's important to remember that everyone is different, with different circumstances and needs. I hope to share many of the things that work for my family, but please be be wise and knowledgeable just the same in determining what is best for yours. What works for one, may not work for another.
