3 Natural Medicines to Keep You Healthy This Season

By Genevieve Cunningham

Most people can agree that medicine is both important and incredibly effective. It's a modern day convenience that we wouldn't want to do without. But even though it's a staple in our world today, many like to avoid excessive use. Fear of dependence, rising tolerance, or ineffectiveness have them running to other methods when possible. If you want to stay healthy without turning to prescriptions at the drop of a hat, take a look at these natural medicines that really work.


Isn't it nice that something so sweet and delicious can be called medicine? Honey serves a couple of different purposes in the winter. For one, when mixed with warm water and a dash of lemon juice,  it works wonders for a sore throat. Along with this, locally harvested honey is also believed to help fight off seasonal allergies. If you want a natural way to stay well, honey is a great first step.


This deep blue berry can be made into a syrup, capsule, or a dissolvable tablet. Elderberry is incredibly powerful, and its effects are widely known among certain communities. It's thought to help fight off viruses, including regular colds and even the flu. You can take it preventatively, or at the first sign of symptoms. Because of its power, it's important to follow the directions that come with your particular kind of elderberry. If you'd like to give it a try, this natural option can be found in most health food stores and is becoming more and more mainstream.

Vitamin D

The cooler months mean getting a little less sun than normal. While this might not sound like a problem for anything other than your tan, a lack of sun often brings a lack of Vitamin D. When we don't get enough of this important vitamin, we may notice aches in the bones, headaches, and a feeling of the blues. A simple supplement may help you make it through the winter until you can get back out in the sun to soak up some rays and Vitamin D.

While there is definitely a place for traditional medicine in our lives, there's nothing wrong with using natural methods when possible. They're safe, effective, and a great way to boost your health. Start with these effective options, and you may be able to protect your health and wellness all year long.
