This weblog publish is in partnership with Genexa. It is a model we’ve used and liked for years and I’m excited to associate with them for this publish.
I’m nonetheless in denial that back-to-school and fall is simply across the nook. There’s loads to look ahead to, particularly because the youngsters will get to see their buddies and lecturers once more. Whereas I’m getting backpacks and kit prepared, I additionally use this time to restock our fall and winter medication cupboard since I do know that there would be the inevitable little chilly. I’m going by means of all the pieces, toss out the previous stuff, and make two bins: one for on a regular basis and the opposite bin is stuffed with stuff for particular illnesses.
I assumed I’d share a few of my methods in right now’s publish, however please take into account that I’m not a health care provider or medical skilled. These are simply a few of the issues that work for our household and the methods I like to make use of as they proceed to heal and really feel higher. As all the time, discuss along with your physician or pediatrician earlier than including in any remedy or dietary supplements for your self or your loved ones.
1) Relaxation and hydration
These are the 2 greatest ones. I attempt to be sure that they’ve a lot of relaxation all through the day, get high quality sleep at evening, and all the time have some water close by. I’ll put the water in a transparent cup (as an alternative of a water bottle) simply so I can control how a lot they’re really consuming. The ladies additionally love heat bone broth with lemon after they’re slightly underneath the climate (and after they’re not underneath the climate).
2) Wellness shot! I’ve posted about this earlier than however our complete household could be very conversant in the wellness shot. Every time anybody has a touch of something occurring, it’s wellness shot time. I take advantage of the juice of half a lemon, a sprinkle of cayenne, and an entire glove of minced garlic. Let the garlic sit minced only for a second earlier than stirring it in, and take it like a brief. Liv hates the wellness photographs however may have slightly bit, whereas P is licking the underside of the glass lol. It tastes like tangy pizza.
3) Dietary supplements. The ladies take nutritional vitamins regularly, and after they’re underneath the climate, I’ll up their Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin D, and add in some elderberry. We additionally take elderberry as soon as every week from September – Might and extra typically if I really feel like we have to.
4) Stable diet and decreasing added sugar. Sugar can negatively have an effect on the immune system, so I attempt to watch it on the sugar when anybody is feeling meh, and deal with soups, all-fruit popsicles, crackers, issues which can be mild on the abdomen and straightforward to digest. Typically if you’re recovering from one thing, you’re not as hungry, so I attempt to simply make meals and broth out there and allow them to resolve how a lot to eat.
5) Further cures and our fave Genexa merchandise.
One thing that we’ve been utilizing for years is the Genexa Children Chilly Crush. I purchased it when Liv was little as a result of it had glorious critiques and plenty of chilly medicines aren’t secure for youths underneath the age of 6. The Chilly Crush tablets have all the time labored nicely for us (P and Liv each take these if they’ve a chilly) and I really like that they don’t comprise any synthetic preservatives, colours, or sweeteners.
(They’ve new packaging for the Chilly Crush; ours is the earlier model)
One other Genexa fave is the Children’ Ache and Fever medication. It’s common acetaminophen (which is the lively ingredient wanted to assist with ache and fever discount) minus the additional components that may generally be present in youngsters’ medication. I take advantage of these merchandise whereas the youngsters are on the mend and proceed to really feel higher.
Just a little bit about Genexa:
– It’s the primary clear medication model on the market! They make medication with the identical lively components individuals want, however with out the bogus ones they don’t. Their merchandise are additionally freed from synthetic dyes, frequent allergens and pointless artificial inactive components, so no poisonous or doubtlessly dangerous chemical substances are concerned!
It is a model that I genuinely belief and I used to be so glad after they reached out, since our drugs cupboard already held fairly just a few Genexa merchandise.
