Elderberry syrup has become a popular remedy for treating colds, influenza, viral bronchitis and sinusitis. Several studies have shown it to enhance immunostimulatory cytokines and shorten the duration of influenza A and B by interfering with viral replication. Maybe this same mechanism would support us in this current pandemic.
With so much anxiety at the moment on the Corona vírus, it seems appropriate to be reminded of help available from our herbal allies, most notably Elderberry (Sambucus nigra). Available from most good natural health stores or you can make it yourself from the berries, recipe available here on the sidebar.
Areas which Dolly has had positive clinical experience in:
The Mother to be. Maternity or Pregnancy Reflexology in particular can be used to treat symptoms during pregnancy leading up to birth.

Dolly has helped me get a grip on some really troublesome health problems. Starting with taking a full case history, she worked with me to put together tinctures that suit me and adjusted them to the ideal dose.
Before consulting Dolly I found my health was disrupting my work and making me feel truly miserable.
Now I feel like I'm back on track and have finally been lucky enough to become a mum. I couldn't be happier and feel I have real faith in a 'natural' approach to health.' S.C. London
