The body can resolve many symptoms of health concerns naturally with some know how and experience, that unfortunately not many have in modern day society which is dominated by big pharma. We’ve collected a few from Derek Henry, founder of Healing The Body and THRIVE online.

This immune supporting tonic comes with a warning, it is powerful and made to work not so much to taste good. It synergistically provides a shot of nutrients that will fortify the body and help to eliminate toxic burdens. To make this you will need 2 cloves of garlic; half a small onion; 1 piece of turmeric; 1 piece of ginger; 1 lemon, half of a small jalapeno or dash of cayenne pepper; 1 ounce of apple cider vinegar; a dash of black pepper; a piece of horseradish; and a teaspoon of raw honey. Put the produce items through a juicer or blender adding the liquid and dry ingredients at the end. This tonic keeps well in an airtight container in cool dark place for a few months.

Colloidal silver has been used to promote healing for thousand of years, when used properly the safety and effectiveness is remarkable, and has little to no taste. It can be used to support the immune system and the body’s natural elimination processes needed during flu season.

Oil of oregano is great for effective immune system support when it is needed the most, and is reported to support the body’s natural elimination process of pathogens. Don’t take it directly as it can burn, it is recommended to dilute 1-2 drops in a glass of water in order to enjoy the medicinal benefits.

Eucalyptus Oil has a rather pleasant smell and supports the lungs and respiratory system in a season when they can be under stress. Put 10-20 drops in a big bowl of hot water along with a few dashes of pink himalayan salt and let cool slightly. Place a towel over your head and lean over the bowl breathing in the steam slowly through the nose and exhaling through the mouth. Putting some eucalyptus oil in a diffuser can help to eliminate germs in the air, and a few drops added in a carrier oil can be applied to the chest as a rub for relief.

The more pink Himalayan salt is the more macrominerals and trace minerals it contains, which can help the body’s natural elimination system work properly. You can soak in it to absorb the healing properties; or put a pinch in a small glass of warm water to gargle at back of throat and swish around the mouth.

Vitamin C has been used effectively for thousand of years due to its antioxidant and immune supporting properties, which can be obtained in many delicious foods and supplements.

Turmeric is no stranger to the health world due to its ability to heal, and it has 5 to 8 times the antioxidant strength of vitamin C and E. It supports the immune system, improves digestion, as well as promotes healthy blood and liver function. Turmeric can be juiced and used as an antibiotic tonic or used straight up in an extract supplement.  

There certainly are more items that can be added to your personal pharmacy such as probiotics, apple cider vinegar, coconut kefir, medicinal mushrooms, ecanacheia, and more because nature provides a vast bounty of home remedies that can be risk free with great upside potential of additional benefits, which is exactly what you want when trying to keep yourself and household in good health.
