Boosting your immune system with TEA

Do you love winter but also always get sick around this time of year? Well, I have a few tips that will help boost your immune system so you can enjoy this winter. 

I love to cozy up with a hot drink and lately I’ve found that there are so many loose teas that really help me in my everyday life whether it is with anxiety, sleep or my immune system. Here are a few, how to prepare them and where to get them. 


-Osha Root- This tea has a history of “healing” properties and has been used over the years by different native tribes for a remedy for colds and other ailments. My friend Thersea at Hara Healing told me about this root and I’ve been loving it so much. 

You can prepare it either by boiling the root then straining into a tea or by boiling and inhaling the steam. The best thing about this tea is the earthy grounding smell it puts off as you boil it. I seriously just have it boiled for a few hours just to have the smell in my home.  

-The best place to purchase Osha root is right here in Pagosa Springs at Earthsense on Main street, they harvest the roots themselves too. Support local:)


-Reishi Mushroom- No you won’t trip on this tea….But it’s worth a trip to the store. Reishi, also known as the “mushroom of immortality”, has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for years. It has been touted in TCM to boost the immune system and promote health. I have read a lot about this mushroom and its effects; however, in my experience it is most effective if taken at night, and for me it promotes a sense of relaxation and calmness. With stress being a leading cause of America's mental health crisis and a leading cause of physical burnout, something as simple as a night time tea ritual can help promote sleep, calm the nervous system and help you wake up refreshed and ready to seize the day. 

You can purchase this tea in a variety of forms but I prefer to buy the sliced dried mushroom. (It looks like a soft piece of bacon) I use kitchen scissors to cut the shroom into little pieces then put it in a loose tea ball. Add a bit of honey to a tea cup and pour hot water in, stirring the honey. Drop in the tea ball and let your Reishi steep for a few minutes. You can purchase reishi here in town at a natural grocer in powder form or hit up Earthsense in the herbs and tea section.  


Let's not forget, you can also enjoy the benefits of regular massage therapy for your overall wellness too.  Book your next appointment with us and let's get ready for winter together.
