I am soooo ready for cooler weather, but not ready for winter colds! We are only 2 weeks into school and we have already had coughs, runny noses and the stomach bug – yuck! I am so glad I have an arsenal of safe options to knock these illnesses out and not see a doctor unless we really need to. I was sick (very sick) too many times to count last winter (sinus infections, strep, etc), so I found some products that will build my immune system and keep me healthy! This mama is too busy to be sick! *Note: I am NOT a doctor, but these products worked for me! I have had several friends ask recently which probiotics, multi-vitamin I take, so here is my list!
+Kyolic Garlic 103 Immune Formula: these babies are magic in a pill! I start taking them as soon as I start feeling icky and boom – it knocks it out!
+Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray: The activated silver in this spray prevents a sinus infection. I spray 1 – 2 sprays a few times a day until the sniffles are gone. You can also spray once a day for maintenance.
+Thieves: Give me ALL the thieves! I diffuse this to kill germs in the air and have in a roller ball to rub on bottom of feet
+Probiotic: Seeking Health ProBiota 12: this is one of the cleanest probiotics out there.
+Multivitamin: Plexus X-Factor with Aloe – I have only taken this for a month or so, but like it so far. I have a friend that sells if you are interested!
+ACF (Acute Cold & Flu): Wowza this stuff helps your immune system! I take several times a day when feeling icky. It tastes BAD, but works!
For the boys:
+Probiotic: Klaire Labs is my fav and I'm still looking for another one to rotate
+Multivitamin: Pure Encapsulations PurePals: I finally found one my kids love and that is clean with no added sugars! Another good one is Seeking Health Multi Chewable
+Children's ACF: Same as the one above for me but this one is for little ones. I mix with lemonaide or apple juice with my boy are getting sick. I try to do it 3x per day when they are sick.
+Essential Oils: I use Thieves on the daily – diffused and rubed on feet and spine. I also use a plethera of others for illness: RC for respitory support, Purification + Lemon for cough, the list goes on. I will have to do a seperate post for all things essential oils! If you have questions about oils or want to use my disount to try some things let me know!
Here is to a happy and healthy back to school!
