Fall Faster into Health
School is back in session and it is common that parents find their children get sick soon after school begins. So this month let’s all commit to making ourselves a little healthier by choosing one or more of these health habits to practice regularly. Ask Dr. Sue she suggests, and travel the shortest distance to good health this fall!
Choose 1 or Choose them All!:
Sleep at least seven hours each night – Better sleep means a healthier immune system. Remember our brain and body recovers from the day’s stresses while we sleep.
Get Adjusted—Have you and your family’s spine and nervous system frequently checked….
Chiropractic kids are freakishly healthy!
Avoid Sugar and Snacks– especially sugary, salty or fried foods, or foods with pesticides or preservatives in them. Kids will still get a ton of it at school unfortunately. However, we limit it where you can. Steer your family towards fruit instead.
Reduce Dairy— Try using almond or rice milk instead. Take any child with asthma or ear infections off of dairy and they improve – just about every time. Add in some adjustments and the healing might be even faster.
Exercise Regularly—Make sure you and your kids exercise each day. Even better, do a small workout in the morning before school together that is fun. It immediately cuts down on whiny morning behavior and best of all it also gets their lymphatic systems moving which makes for healthier kids.
Eat Breakfast Every Morning – that’s why they call it “breaking the fast,” so get your day started with a healthy meal.
