Echinacea, Elderflower & Elderberry - Important Covid-19 Info

I am writing this in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic that's hitting the world hard.  We have received some conflicting information as to whether Echinacea, Elderflower (which we use in our Cold & Flu Tincture), and Elderberry are safe and appropriate for viral infections, namely the Covid-19 infection.  There has been some conjecture as to whether Covid-19 could cause a "cytokine storm" which means an over-response by the immune system.  As this virus is so new, not much is known about it yet and whether this is true or not.  Some have expressed concern that these herbs might further stimulate the immune system and cause an over-reaction, making a cytokine storm worse.  After doing some exhaustive research, I have new and interesting information for you on this.  These are my findings:

Testimonial

I strongly recommend Herb Lore's herbs, especially their Labor Tincture.  I have seen it work many times when other things have not, and I can highly recommend it over and above anything else.  I also live in the same community as Herb Lore, and I have been to their facility.  They use only organic herbs and the best and highest quality.  I have been impressed with Pam Caldwell's (Herb Lore's founder, company herbalist and creator of the Herb Lore line) knowledge of herbs and pregnancy and lactation, and have used their products to help with all sorts of problems that women in their childbearing years have.  Most midwives know a bit about herbs, but Pam's knowledge is far greater, and because of that, has created a highly effective line of herbal products.  I highly recommend using Herb Lore's products and their information as a valuable resource for anyone.  I also think anyone who uses their herbs, especially the Labor Tincture, will not go back to any of the alternatives.
