With the back to school commercials all over the TV and the media bombarding us with specials for the kids, it’s easy to forget about the important stuff. Like the fact that even though you have had to deal with their energy throughout the summer, they very soon will be back to school. That not only means a long trip back by road or air if you have been away, but most importantly, they are heading off into a wonderland of germs.
Being surrounded by a whole bunch of other or even new kids causes a bunch of children to get sick every year the first few weeks back at school.
And that is just the pre cursor to what the doctors term the September spike. Cold/flu and asthma stats apparently jump through the roof in September.
So what can you do? Well, Ginger has been used for thousands of years to treat colds and flu as well as a preventative measure.
Used in Ayurvedic, Japanese, and Chinese Traditional medicines the essential oil of ginger has at least 100 chemical components. It is used in various forms to treat colds, chills, phlegm, nausea, vomiting, shock and on and on, while boosting your bodies ability to fight off infection.
Ginger can be sneakily put in many forms. We have real natural sodas but you can get it in ice cream and candy too. Keep your
diet all natural and all healthy, add a little ginger, and your kids will be tearing around with a smile on their face minus the coughing, right through winter.
