20 Aug Boosting your immune system this Fall
With Summer slowly coming to an end, a lot of parents are starting to look forward to their child(ren) heading back to school. But with that comes all the colds and flus the children seem to bring home anew each Fall.
During the Summer months most children don’t find themselves around as many other children as they would while they’re in school, and for the most part we tend to spend most of our time outdoors. Spending time outside allows our body to soak up all the glorious sunshine and create Vitamin D! Which helps to overall boost our immune system and improve our mood.
Once the kids return to school, all of a sudden they find themselves cooped up in a classroom for the better part of the day. The days get shorter, we spend a lot less time outside and more often than not the weather isn’t quite as nice as it was throughout the Summer. When you combine all of that and it’s not hard to see why so many children come home with so many different bugs each September.
But did you know that there are several things you can start doing now, to help boost your child’s immune system (as well as that of the rest of your family!) to prevent a lot of these bugs from making the round in your home?
“The immune system constantly creates genes on the fly that are specific to the things that show up in the body. It’s amazing” – Author: Erez Lieberman Aiden
It’s far easier to prevent from getting sick in the first place than it is to speed up getting better. And thankfully, there are countless ways to improve your immune system to prevent from getting sick in the first place. The trick is finding the ones that work best for you and your family. So don’t be discouraged if the first few don’t quite work the way you would like them too.
Boosting your immune system
It’s important to note, that there are a lot of components that work together to create a healthy immune system. Arguably the most important being regularly getting enough sleep. Followed closely by eating a well balanced, healthy diet and proper hydration along with regular exercise. Aside from that you can find various teas and tinctures blended specifically to support healthy immune function.
But did you know that there are quite a number of essential oils that can help to support healthy immune function as well? Not to mention, when used to clean your home, some of these very essential oils can also kill the pathogens that make you sick in the first place!
You’ve likely heard us talk about several of them before. Essential oils such as Eucalyptus, Lemon, Tea Tree, Thyme, Geranium, Peppermint, Pine, Rosemary and Frankincense are just a few that are great at supporting the immune system when used correctly. When using essential oils to boost the immune system, they work best when several are blended together in a synergistic blend.
The trick is finding the ones that work best for you and your family. So don’t be discouraged if the first few don’t quite work the way you would like them too.
