Greetings to the this fine list.

I drink an immune tea, which is a mixture of:Echinacea,Nettles,
Coltsfoot, Comfrey, Red Clover, Alfalfa, Peppermint, and Stevia.  I
drink it daily and have noticed that I am not sick this year as I was
last year.  This could also be to the possiblity that there are fewer
germs or viruses this year, I don't know.
