It’s that time of year again. The kids are back at school and so we put together this list of the top three things you should do before they head off to the classroom:
1. Arm their immune systems
One of the most important things parents can do before their kids go back to school is to boost their immune systems. The classroom is often full of bugs, as all parents know well. Vitamin D is a great first step as it is vitally important for immune system function, as well as for cell growth and reducing inflammation. You can read more about it here.
Making sure your child has a good intake of vitamin c and zinc is especially useful in boosting their body's natural immunity. It can be a struggle to get enough of these vital nutrients from diet alone, which is where supplements can help immensely. The Extra Immune Defense Kit includes four powerful immune building formulas. This kit will arm your family's immune systems with vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, Zinc and boost it further with all natural herbs like Olive Leaf and Astragalus.
Liqui-C Complete is a liquid form of Vitamin C. Vitamins C is essential vitamin that the body uses to build and maintain a healthy immune system. It also has many other important functions in the body, like the formation of collagen.
Liqui-Zinc is an exceptionally well absorbed form of zinc. Zinc is crucial to the immune system. It helps maintain white blood cell activity, and helps support antioxidant protection.
Another powerful way to fortify your family's immune systems is through herbs. Olive leaf and Astragalus are especially good for this purpose.
Olive leaf extract, (Oleuropein) has shown to have strong antimicrobial activity against both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. It also reduces inflammation in the body and has been shown to have a strong antiviral impact against the various viruses.
Astragalus is used as a potent immune system tonic. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astragalus tonifies the protective quality known as Wei Chi. Western medical studies have confirmed that Astragalus supports and strengthens many parts of the immune system and has antiviral properties.
People with autism or environment-related illness often show high levels of antibodies to Measles, CMV, Lymes and other infections, or may catch a lot of seasonal infections, and immune support may be an important part of caring for their health.
Together, the Extra Immune Defense Kit can help keep your kids healthy and strong throughout the school year.
2. Manage their stress naturally
Magnesium is a mineral that is important for many bodily functions, including regulating stress. When magnesium levels are low, it can lead to an increase in stress hormones. This can lead to problems such as anxiety, insomnia, and gastrointestinal issues. Magnesium can be a great way to manage stress naturally. It is often recommended for people who suffer from anxiety or panic attacks. Magnesium can help to calm the nervous system and relax the muscles. It can also help to improve sleep quality.
Most people only take magnesium in pill forms, but there are other options. LiquiMag is an Ultra-colloidal suspension for optimal absorption and cellular uptake. Essentially predigested, less breakdown by the digestive tract is required, facilitating superior absorption in the presence of gastrointestinal issues that limit the breakdown and absorption of tablets, capsules and powdered supplements.
Magnesium deficiency has long been thought to play a significant role in the auditory sensitivity or insensitivity common with children on The Spectrum. This may occur with a predominance of calcium that can create a magnesium deficiency, facilitating an increased release of glutamate, and resulting in an over-stimulation of the auditory nerve.
Magnesium is known as the “anti-stress” mineral, and also one of the body’s premiere biochemical enzyme catalysts. It is essential for glutathione synthesis, energy production, cell replication and integrity, detoxification, muscular/neurological function, and maintaining body pH balance.
3. Help them focus
A child with ASD or ADHD may have difficulty concentrating due to the problems with processing sensory information. One way to help them focus is through herbal support. Focusene gives the distracted brain targeted nutrition to support focus and memory neurotransmitters – and then turns up the dial of mental performance with a powerful herbal boost. In the end what you have is a two-part formula giving you a Nootropic Supercharge as well as long-term focus and memory support. Learn more about it here.
