We have officially arrived at fall speed into the season of sickness. I’m typing this as I’m pausing to sneeze every few minutes with eyes watering I can barely see my computer screen. My two and a half year old son is happily climbing over me while I feel as if I could potentially collapse in a heap and sleep all day. (I promise, I can’t contaminate you through my computer screen, so keep reading!)
It seems that as soon as the seasons begin to change and the rain begins, the germs come out from hibernation to play, energized and ready to attack. No parent wants their kids to get sick, but even more so, as parents we can’t afford to get sick! Our work never ends, and there’s no such thing as ‘resting’, ‘silence’ or ‘taking a break from reality’ to recover as a parent.
I often find myself only taking immune boosters once I’m already feeling like I’ve caught something. I try to take vitamins daily, but at the beginning of winter, it’s just not enough. However, I rock up at the chemist, and generally just give up because of the over enthusiastic amount of choices there are. I don’t understand the ingredients in half of them, and I don’t know what’s healthier than the next.
SO… Instead, I decided to just make my way over to the Faithful To Nature website, because there, you actually can’t go wrong. They have in depth descriptions including the ingredients, what the product achieves, what each of the main ingredients roles are. I just find that this is such a relief, and it makes shopping for meds just that much easier. Especially because I can do this without a hyper active toddler swinging himself from the trolley or begging to go ‘uppy’.
I’ve managed to order a handful of winter remedies for my entire family. Sadly, just not quite in time for this first winter cold which has left me feeling like I’ve been dragged through the bushes…a thorn bush…backwards…maybe twice.
However, it has arrived in time for me to boost Olly’s immune system as well as hubbies before they get contaminated by me! Nobody wants any form of man-flu in the house. So, I may just give him a double dose! 😉
I touched on this topic earlier this week – Winter and illnesses, and just briefly chatted about some of the most important ways to keep your family healthy this winter. So please refer back to https://www.facebook.com/onemodernmom/photos/a.1413740795622584.1073741829.1409931466003517/1790406981289295/?type=3&theater
