Mama’s Natural Medicine Cabinet: Navigating Motherhood with Confidence Episode 6


In episode 6, I’m chatting with Dr. Sherisse O’Leary, ND about ways we can support our family’s immune system with simple ingredients in our kitchens.

We begin by reviewing the most common foods we eat that deplete our immune system and leave us more susceptible to cold & flu. Then, Dr. Sherisse shares her top 5 favourite immune boosting foods to keep stocked in the kitchen and some kid-friendly recipes for preparing these foods – both for prevention & to support healing during a cold.

Of course with a discussion about boosting our immune systems, the topic of fever came up. If you’re curious to learn more about the health benefits of fever & how to support your little one(s) through fever, check out episode 2 ~ Fever: Friend or Foe?

Also, check out my recipe for Homemade Natural Cough & Cold Syrup – great for prevention or during a cold, for every member of the family over age one.
