Back to school time can be exciting and stressful. Although getting back into a routine after a fun summer can feel good, the change in sleeping patterns and more exposure to germs and viruses on buses and in schools can be hard on our children’s health. While antibiotics and over the counter medications offer symptom relief, they don’t improve immune function, or help the body heal on it’s own. Homeopathic medicine is a highly effective way to boost immunity while getting to the core of the problem. It is also completely safe and natural. The following are some basic homeopathic principles:
• Boosting the immune system so the body is strong and can fight illness and heal on it’s own.
• Symptoms are manifestations of the body’s attempt to heal, and by listening to these calls we can help kick start out body to heal on it’s own.
• By using the minimal amount of substance to trigger an immune response we lower the person’s individual susceptibility to the recurring illness.
Homeopathic remedies stimulate the immune system to assist the body in repairing imbalances that occur. The immune system has to be in excellent condition to perform its functions. In Homeopathy, an appropriate remedy is selected on the basis of the entire constitution of an individual after investigating all the physical, mental, and emotional symptoms, and figuring out the patterns of susceptibilities in that individual. Once the homeopath has found the remedy for you, you can use it to boost your own immune function whenever you feel “run down”.
Some other natural immune boosters are Elderberry concentrate, Vitamins C and D, garlic, probiotics, and echinacea. Use these tips to enjoy a healthy transition back to school!
