As the heat of summer gives way to the chills of autumn, it is a good time to think about boosting your immunity for the new season ahead.

Plant remedies can help us overcome infectious illnesses both by supporting the body's natural healing mechanisms and by having an anti-microbial action on invading organisms.

In recent years, echinacea has grown in popularity as an immune system booster; and while this indigenous North American herb has many excellent benefits, I also like to use elderberry (pictured), which is a more traditional British remedy for immunity.

Elderberry is especially useful in the prevention of coughs, colds and flu. It is a mild herb, which means that it can be easily taken by children and the elderly.
