Dec. 2017: Looking for some unique gifts that support the health of you and your loved ones? Here are a few stocking stuffer ideas!
Booboo Goo in easy to use paper tubes! Great for chapped hands, lips and noses. No stinging and all food grade/ organic... $9
”Old School” trigger point massager. Also known as tennis balls in a sock (but it’s a really cool green sock). Great for getting into all those spots that get tight and stuck... neck, pelvis, spine, feet...$5
Fire Cider, made lovingly by yours truly! 16 oz. ...$26, 8 oz....$16, 2 oz. sample size... $5
Gift Certificates! Don’t forget massage and bodywork to support the wellbeing of those you love... including yourself!
WHAT THE HECK IS FIRE CIDER, ANYWAY?!? Fire cider is a tonic revered by herbalists and grandmothers alike for generations. Infused for a month or more, it’s known for its ability to support the immune system, shorten the duration of colds and flu symptoms, and alkalize the whole digestive system! While it may not be the tastiest concoction (though I have known a few who disagree), it’s a potent apple cider vinegar infusion of roots, peppers, spices, fruits, and herbs that is: immune boosting, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, decongestant, circulatory AND digestive stimulant! Phew!
While there is no specific dosage, the general rule of thumb is up to a Tbsp/ day as a general tonic. More can be taken for acute cold/ flu symptoms. I’ve taken a “swig” (my version of a teaspoon or so) every 1-2 hrs til symptoms subside. Even my teenagers swear by it despite the faces and sounds they make as they swallow it straight! It is safe for children, though getting them to take it is another matter…
Here’s to a happy, healthy winter! Cheers!
