Staying Healthy in the “New Normal”

September brings the energy of a fresh start, when we greet the autumn rush of activity and return to the daily household rhythms. But this year feels a little different, as there is some apprehension about increased socialization, with a particular concern around kids returning to school. 

We often step up our health regimens when cold and flu season approaches, but, as we adjust to the “new normal”, the focus on our health and strategies to protect it have become a constant.

A key approach to defending your health and your family’s is to be proactive in supporting the body’s own natural defenses by building strong immune systems, so you can help prevent viruses from taking hold.

Building Strong Immunity

A healthy, balanced diet along with quality sleep and stress management tools are key for supporting the whole family’s health throughout this busy time of year. What’s also critical is preventative plant medicine that can help boost your body’s ability to naturally fight off illness, by strengthening its resiliency- every day!

The immune system can be thrown out of balance by new routines, changes in eating patterns, and stress – something we will all be navigating as we get back into the swing of things. A group of plants, herbs, and mushrooms known as adaptogens can help fortify the body’s response to these changes and challenges, by working to keep the body in balance, where all systems are functioning efficiently and at their strongest.

This is what makes the #1 selling Deep Immune® formulas unique as daily protective tonics formulated with immune-specific adaptogens – to proactively defend against infection and shield you from illness.

Deep Immune® is formulated with a unique, therapeutic blend of 8 plant medicines backed by a long history of traditional use and modern research, including:

  • Reishi mushroom – referred to as the “mushroom of immortality” in Traditional Chinese Medicine, it lowers the effects of stress and modulates immune system responses
  • Astragalus – strengthens both innate and adaptive immunity for robust natural defenses
  • Siberian ginseng (Eleuthero) –increases stamina as a tonic to boost overall health and improve mental and physical performance under stressful conditions
  • Licorice – amplifies the healing qualities of all the ingredients  

Together, these powerful ingredients directly strengthen & optimize the immune system, helping to prevent viral infections, colds & flu.

Immune protection for kids!

When it comes to our kids, the return to school and regular routines also comes with concerns about exposure to sickness. Whether it’s in the classroom, in group activities, or on the playground, they’ll be back to socializing. After so much time away from playmates – are their immune systems ready?

Deep Immune® Kids was formulated to help children stay healthy! This formula blends two kid-friendly adaptogens: Astragalus, which supports crucial immune responses against illness and infection, and Codonopsis, an immune-restorative that supports the body from fatigue and defends against frequent infection – in an easy-to-take, mild-tasting daily tincture! Tip: it can also easily be added to their orange juice!

Both Deep Immune® and Deep Immune® Kids are winners of 2020 Alive Awards, awarded by consumers and retailers – so you know you can trust these products!

“Balance” vs. “boosting” Immunity

Some may wonder how “boosting” immunity compares to balancing it. In short, a balanced immune system is your strongest immune system; if it is overactive, there can be excess inflammation and strong reactions (e.g., to some allergens), while, if it is underactive, one is vulnerable to infections.

The adaptogens in Deep Immune® daily formulas adapt their function to an individual’s unique health needs, effectively supporting whole-body health – which in turn, gives the immune system a “boost” by helping it to operate in its “sweet spot”, where it is balanced and prepared!

Shield yourself and your family with Canada’s #1 Immunity Tonics*! Deep Immune® and Deep Immune® Kids from St. Francis Herb Farm work to maintain and restore whole-body balance – giving you protection and peace of mind, assuring you that your defenses are ready for whatever the “new normal” brings your way.
