Back to School Health Tips

I just came across a great article regarding Back to School and the usual sickness that follows. This article includes health tips regarding hygiene methods to teach your children, and how to keep their immune systems in top shape.

Around our house, we use natural disinfecting products, take supplements and visit the chiropractor regularly to keep our systems balanced. Our son also goes to bed fairly early and I try to keep our family healthy by eliminating preservatives, fillers, hydrogenated oils and corn syrup and increasing the amount of healthy and whole foods that we eat.

There are several ways to teach your children how to prevent illness this coming school year. It's not enough to leave it up to our school system and teachers to keep our children healthy, it is OUR responsibility as parents.

When requested to bring cleaning products, why not try an alternative green product, such as Seventh Generation Disinfecting products. These products are as effective as chemical laden products, but do not produce the smells, chemicals and possible respiratory and topical reactions. Yes, they may be slightly more expensive, but coupons are available, and these items do go on sale. However, the health benefits are far worth the price!

If you're interested in learning more about these disinfecting products, I have posted a review of several Seventh Generation products.
