We are trying to go mostly herbal or natural here. Kiddo also showed zero on her OAT test. What I am about to try is pine needle tincture as a vitamin C substitute and anti-microbial. We live in the country and have no shortage of pine needles :).

 

Here is an excerpt from an article about benefits of pine needles:

 

"That's because pine needles are rich in vitamin C. Hundreds of years ago many people died of lack of vitamin C, not directly, but indirectly, from opportune infections that thrived because their immune system lacked critical vitamins. Pine needles still provide vitamin C to help us stay healthy in the cold season. They can be chewed, brewed into a tea, or, my favorite, prepared as a vinegar."
