What comes to mind when you think of September? Depending on where you live, September means crisp mornings and the arrival of fall’s changing colors. It is also the month when schools around the world begin to hit their stride for yet another year of teaching. It is also a time of year for the dreaded “Back-to-School Cold” for children, parents and teachers.
Tamara, a public school educator in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, knows firsthand how easily colds spread once school starts. She’s been teaching for over 26 years as a Speech Language Pathologist. With sneezing and coughing students coming into her classroom it is nearly impossible to avoid the germs. Cold and flu bugs become rampant and don’t just impact students, but teachers as well. And, when they strike, they strike hard.
You know the symptoms. Colds come with a cough, runny nose, raised temperature, loss of appetite and a sore throat, and can put you out of commission for 24 to 72 hours. Catching the flu is a bit more unpleasant and can include muscle aches, vomiting or diarrhea, a lack of energy but can become dangerous for some people, potentially leading to ear infections, pneumonia or dehydration.
According to Tamara, teachers typically take precautions to keep colds and flu at bay by loading up on supplements and vitamins and taking extra care when washing their hands. But that doesn’t always work.
When she learned about Dao Labs’ Immunity Support, she was eager to try it.
“I was asked to try Immunity Support last year and the experience was fabulous!,” said Tamara. “The positive results surpassed my expectations when I went the entire year without ‘catching’ a cold.”
Immunity Support is based off the Traditional Chinese Medicine formula Yu Ping Feng Sang, also known as Jade Windscreen. We’ve blended three natural herbs to create Immunity Support: Astragalus (Root) or Huang Qi, Siler (Root) or Fang Feng, and Atractylodes (Stem) or Bai Zhu as well as a refreshing pear-ginger combination in updating this all natural ancient remedy. Chinese herbs are notoriously effective but highly unpleasant to the palate: DAO Labs has solved that!
“I appreciate the fact that this formula is all natural,” said Tamara. “Traditional Chinese Medicine was new to me. I thought the herbs would taste bad, but to my surprise, the drink was effervescent, flavorful, yet light on the palate. The pear and ginger flavored packets dissolved readily in my cold water bottle. I even swirled it into my mug of hot water to warm me up on colder days. It really worked!”
The herbs behind Immunity Support work great during the height of cold season, but work wonders during pollen season as well. Said Tamara, “I can honestly say that I had none of the itchy, watery eyes or sneezing that I usually get when pollen strikes in the fall and spring!”
