Health Alert: Season of Colds & Croup
This is the time of year when keiki will be more likely to catch the common cold. Symptoms can include: clear runny mucus and some coughing.
There is a more serious respiratory illness called croup which along with greenish mucus, slight fever also comes a harsh cough that often will only come on at night and you’ll hear a barking like cough, for some children this leads to a restricting of the airways and difficulty breathing. Croup is a viral infection.
**The best thing we can do for our selves and families health is to keep our immune systems strong:
– Essential vitamins, minerals, and Omega 3s along with healthier eating habits do our bodies good.
– OnGuard, Oregano, Melaleuca, Lemon, Frankincense, & Cinnamon are just a few oils absolutely crucial to keeping our bodies and our homes clean.
– A healthy gut strengthens our immune systems even more. LIVE probiotics for adults and children are essential – Celestials carries a children’s chewable tablet in their refrigerator.

**I use essential oils OnGuard and Breathe every night after baths on my little ones & if something is going around I add Oregano essential oil to the mix. Most of these oils are antiviral and antibacterial so for me they are worth gold when as a source of preventative medicine as well as an aid in speeding up the healing process.
