I’ve never been thrilled about using conventional medications, and over the past 7 years my family has transitioned to using mostly natural remedies for any ailment that comes our way.

I want to be clear in that I think there is a time and place for antibiotics and other conventional medications. But our family’s rule of thumb is to always try the natural route first. 

I hope the following natural remedies round-up will help keep your family healthy all winter long!
