So, for many reasons ImmunoPRP is being added to our suggested list of general immune support. Recommended dosing is 1-2 sprays once a day and if your child is sick, increase to twice daily. Older kids and adults can take the ImmunoPRP capsules. Children who are diagnosed with allergies or autoimmune disease may find benefit in using ImmunoPRP as part of their treatment plan.

General Advice

·   Frequent handwashing with soap and water

·        Encourage your child to cough or sneeze into the inside of elbow

·        Clean common surfaces, counter tops, toys, door handles and bathroom facilities with an anti-bacterial cleaner such as Thieves cleaner

·        Get plenty of rest, exercise, fresh air

·        Avoid excessive refined sugars and junk food, instead load up on fruits and vegetables and fresh water

·        Consider bathing children once home from school, then changing into lounging/play clothes so as not to carry germs home on clothing. Take shoes off at the door

·        Remember stress increases cortisol which decreases your immune system response. Help your family stay well by providing fun activities, kind acts for others, consider adrenal support supplements for older children, teens and adults

Your child should be seen by a healthcare provider if he/she is experiencing any difficulty breathing, extreme lethargy, persistent or recurrent fever, persistent vomiting, diarrhea, signs of dehydration, or symptoms seem to be worsening, or you have any other major concerns about your child's health.

3 Tips For Eating Healthy With Kids While On Vacation

Pack Healthy Snacks- The family with stable blood sugar will have a much more stable vacation.Family

Ideas include bananas, apples, grapes, trail mix (Almonds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, raisins), gluten-free cookies & pretzels, nut Butter individual packages, "baby food" pouches for the kids (the pouches filled with fruit or veggie puree), and homemade muffins.

If you are on a road trip and have room for a cooler, pack meals to include carrot and celery sticks with hummus and Applegate lunch meat and cheese.

Make Water Your Friend - It is very easy to get dehydrated while traveling, especially when you are out in the sun more than your body is used to. Keep a refillable water bottle with you, or stock your hotel refrigerator with bottles of water instead of sodas. Take it with you in your backpack, diaper bag and in your car.

Plan Ahead- Research family friendly restaurants and their menus within your road trip and at your destination. You may even want to research the local famers markets in your destination.
