There are numerous beneficial herbs that strengthen our immune systems. Among them are basil, oregano, mint, parsley, and thyme. Many of these herbs are easy to grow indoors during the winter and enjoy being placed outside in the summer months in their pots. They can also flavor our food in a tasty and natural way to promote a healthier appetite. Herbs also provide us with aromatherapy, as they are brushed up against on a windowsill to release their fragrance or tossed in the bathwater. Three herbs and spices that are especially helpful for senior wellness are rosemary (helps with memory improvement), turmeric (assists with alleviating arthritis pain), and ginger (helps with blood sugar levels).
