Spring Immune Booster

Spring decocotion

I decided to call this a St. Paddy's Day name because, well, I'm publishing it on that day but it's a great addition to your immune building habits at any time...especially during the change of the season into Spring.

This juice is a combination of both a cold-press and a herbal decoction.

If you're new to this term (decoction), welcome to the world of herbalism! Don't let it spook you, it's really quite simple :)

The idea behind this recipe came from spring season and the variety of flu systems many experience during this change - aside from colds, there are a lot of allergies that seem to get exasperated.

Many benefits come with this decoction: digestion, blood sugar, immune. So, having said that, it's important to understand that this recipe can be quite potent. If you have any medical condition, please consult your doctor and/or alternative health care provider.
