<p>Everyone in my house has colds already and it is only October 1st.  I would love to boost our immune systems but I don't know where to start.  Extra vitamin C?  Echinecea?  Something else?</p>

<p>We are at the tail-end of an awful cold. It's been more than two weeks now. There seem to be a lot of colds/flus going around in my area, so maybe it's an early year for it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We do:</p>
<p>elderberry syrup</p>
<p>fish oil pills</p>
<p>multivitamin</p>
<p>extra C and D</p>
<p>probiotics</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I know some people swear by limiting or completely cutting out sugar but that's never worked for us. I was really adamant about it one winter and we were the sickest as a family we had ever been. But it might be worth a try.</p>

We eat organically; consume zero sugars (except Concord grape juice); drink water, the previously mentioned juice, and herbal teas (ginger and raspberry leaf); get plenty of rest; laugh daily; get fresh air, sunshine and exercise frequently (we do not have a car). It works for us.
