For most moms, there’s no time to be sick — or worse — have a sick child. Luckily, there’s a home remedy that can help your family prevent or lessen the effects of what goes around during cold & flu season.
Alia Einstein-Diez shares her recipe for homemade Elderberry syrup.
Elderberry has been found effective against a wide range of influenza viruses including human, swine and avian strains. For centuries, people have made the cold remedy using just elderberries, water and honey. This recipe is a slight variation on the ancient elderberry theme to give it more flavor and immunological punch.
