Keeping Kids Healthy
Through Flu Season & All Winter Long .... 

1.  To give a good nutritional foundation to the brain and nervous system and to the whole child, a good should always begin with a quality multivitamin/mineral, like Shaklee's Incredivites  
 2. Then add:
     Chewable Vita C - essential for a healthy immune system.  Take extra at the onset of a cold or virus.
     Optiflora (probiotic) - Essentail for any child who's ever been on an antibiotic..restores essential flora where 80% of the immune system resides.
     Nutriferon - Yet another recent clinical study from Cornell Medical School proves its effectiveness against flu viruses.  Immune support at the cellular level.

3.  Keep handy:
     Defend & Resist Complex - Echinacea plus herbs increase activity of white blood cells to gobble up viruses and  bacteria.
     Alfalfa Complex - natural decongestant; excellent for children reluctant to eat vegetables.

And follow these healthy habits:
  • 10 hours of sleep for children; 9 for teens; 8 for adults
  • Most important;  Plan meals to incorporate 6-9 vegetables/day - like celery, broccoli, zucchini, green beans, carrots
  • Avoid (or minimize) SUGAR & baked goods - we know this is tough, but is seriously damaging to the immune system & especially the brain.  Sugar and white flour are called the anti-nutrients becasue they deplete B vitamins & other essential nutrients.
  • Maintain indoor humidity between 30-50% 
Wishing you and your family a happy & healthy fall and winter!
