Teachers are so susceptible to getting sick being around soso many germs basically all the time. As the seasons change and we leave the "honeymoon period" of the school year, our stress levels rise and when this happens, we're double as likely to get sick because our immunity goes down. When I'm feeling any kind of sickness come on, my favorite thing to do is make myself a big cup of Tumeric Healing Potion! Literally whenever my teacher friends are sick, I tell them to ingest tumeric in some form -- put it in your tea, bake it into your chicken, coat your sauteed green beans with it -- whatever! It's truly nature's medicine because it's super anti-inflammatory, improves brain function, and prevents disease. Need I say more?!
TUMERIC HEALING POTION

Optional: scoop of collagen peptides
