Outstanding post. It should be added to the Avian Flu Prep thread, if and when you get a chance...
I am presently using Cinnamon and Turmeric for other reasons, primarily these:
Cinnamon is good for insulin response and blood sugar levels, also benefits triglycerides and good cholesterol. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and has a shown detectable improvement in my RA.
I also take my elderberry "potion" on days I go out in public, just before and just after.
Ginger is an excellent addition. Thanks for the information.
My son came down with this year's flu (not bird flu, obviously) this last weekend. He got it full-bore. I immediately gave him Sambucol in large doses. The fever broke in 36 hours and all symptoms (nausea, fever, headaches, bodyaches, coughing) were gone in 3.5 days. This stuff is great.
How much Cinnamon, Tumeric and Ginger is recommeded daily to improve immunity?
