ways to keep your family healthy during stressful times

Since kids are going back to school, for most parents stressful times are here now.  Stressful times usually get you thinking about everything, but your family’s health.  When we run around more and sleep less our immunity decreases.

To keep your immune system strong and your family healthy during  stressful times, consider the following tips:

1. Add more garlic or odorless garlic pills to your family’s diet. Read about the 5 ways that garlic can treat a cold.

2. Make elderberry syrup and drink it daily. Rich in vitamin C, elderberry is one of the oldest immune enhancers known to man.

3. Practice relaxation techniques: Stress suppresses the immune system. Learning techniques to reduce stress helps to return your immune system to its optimal function. Try this easy meditation for busy parents.  My own Relaxation Techniques CD offers many options for guided meditation and relaxation as well as breathing exercises.

5. Watch what you eat. Sugar, fried foods, processed junk foods are not there to make you healthier and stronger. Consuming too much sugar suppresses immune system cells responsible for attacking bacteria. Eat raw fruit and vegetables daily.  Full of phytonutrients, green veggies effectively increase your immunity. To get your daily serving of greens faster, consider a green smoothie.

6. Exercise.  “Studies show that regular, moderate exercise – like a daily 30 minute walk — increases the level of leukocytes, an immune system cell that fights infection. When you’re a non-exerciser, your risk of infections — such as colds — increase compared to those who exercise,” according to WebMD.com. Read about ways to find time to exercise.

7. Drink Cold Season Tea daily. It tastes great, even the kids enjoy it with honey. The herbal formula of this tea is incredible: it usually keeps viruses at bay and shortens the duration of a sickness. Simply grating some fresh ginger into your mug of boiling water and adding some honey is a simpler substitute.

8. Take natural supplements for immunity. Olive leaf extract, grapefruit seed extract are natural anti-viral agents.
