September is Back to School and Back to Routines


I remember when I was a kid that at the end of summer vacation we had to start going to bed earlier to “get practised up for school”. With all the activities and travels of summer we get away from our routines – including taking supplements and eating healthy.


Whether it’s back to school or back to work, just the thought of it can make us feel anxious or interrupt our sleep. The mineral magnesium can help to keep us calm and help us sleep better. Magnesium is often lacking in our diet or we don’t retain what is there. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include anxiety, restlessness, muscle cramping or twitching and constipation. Another safe and effective remedy for anxiety is Bach Rescue Remedy available in convenient pastilles and safe for children as well.


Omega 3 fish oils are important for focus and concentration whether at school or work and the DHA is important for eye health and Omega 3’s contain anti-inflammatory properties as well so make sure these become part of your family’s daily routine this fall.


If you have smaller children, remember to start using Tea Tree oil in the shampoo to avoid any lice dilemmas, but it’s also a great spot treatment for teens with acne issues or seniors with toe nail fungus.


Back to school time can be stressful and takes a toll on the immune system. Remember to keep an anti-viral formula on hand and make sure to take probiotics. This is especially true for young children. Probiotics have been shown to improve the strength of the immune system and significantly reduce days absent from daycare/school due to illness, they improve gastrointestinal function, respiratory and allergy response as well.
