The Wheel of the Year has turned and we're now well into Autumn -- just a few days out from Samhein. We recently got flu shots at my workplace and colds are already going around my DC. Health Care -- who gets it, what it entails, how to register for it, how to fund it, how to provide it -- is front and center (sadly, in a rather unhealthy way) in our body politic.
I belonged, for a number of years, to a Circle that had a lovely tradition at about this time of year of doing a magic working to increase our own immunity. A day or two before the working, each of us would -- with intent -- shop for and prepare a dish meant to strengthen immunity. One woman usually made a mushroom soup (http://www.prevention.com/food/cook/andrew-weil-true-food-kitchen-and-healing-recipes?page=2) as mushrooms are great for boosting immunity (see here: http://blog.doctoroz.com/oz-experts/3-mushrooms-and-their-big-immunity-benefits). I would make a fruit salad with chopped up blood and Valencia, oranges, ruby red grapefruits, kiwi fruits, dragon fruits (because, come on, of course!), and raspberries. Another woman once made a delicious beet dish (http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/beets-immune-system-9259.html). You get the idea. We would gather, do a bit of magic to charge the food, and then consume it in sacred space in order to strengthen our immunity.
You might want to adapt this idea to perform a magic working to bring greater health not only to yourself, your family, and our populace, but also to our body politic (which, Goddess knows, certainly seems to have succumbed to various parasites).
