It's that time of year . . . Children go back to school, cold and flu season etc.
Sugar compromises the immune system. Eating sugar actually suppress the immune system, 1 teaspoon lowers your immune system 50% - up to six hours.

Kindergarteners average 12 colds a year, while older kids develop about seven. The cold season runs from September to March, making these the highest risk months. The virus that causes this upper respiratory tract can live for several hours on contaminated objects, such as door handles, books, pens, or a computer keyboard or mouse.

Prevention: Along with frequent hand washing, taking a reusable water bottle to school instead of using the water fountain can reduce kids’ risk for colds and other infections since the parts of the fountain that students touch can become contaminated with germs. If your child catches a cold, teach them to sneeze or cough into a tissue (or the inside of their elbow, if they don’t have a tissue) instead of their hands, so they don’t spread the virus to everything they touch.

Angelica Root Essential oil - used for Coughs, Colds, Fevers. For centuries, Angelica Root has been hailed as the ultimate remedy for all infectious maladies. Just apply to bottom of feet or a few drops on a piece of cotton cloth and inhaled through out the day.

Conjunctivitis, pinkeye is a highly contagious viral or bacterial infection of the membrane that lines the eyelid and part of the eyeball. Symptoms include itchiness or a gritty feeling in one or both eyes, the white of the eye turning pink or red, and a crusty discharge. Pinkeye is much more common in kids than in adults and can also be sparked by allergies.
Prevention: Teach kids not to share tissues, towels, washcloths, eye makeup or eye drops with other people. If your child has allergies, dust and vacuum often to reduce allergens in your home and close windows when the pollen count is high.

Strep Throat. This bacterial infection of the throat is most common in kids ages 5 to 15 and can sometimes have serious complications, including rheumatic fever, which can damage heart valves. Caused by group A streptococcal bacteria, strep throat strikes in crowded environments such as schools, with late fall and early spring being the peak seasons. Consider using - 3 in 1 - This blend was given to me by a Naturopathic doctor when my daughter came down with 'strep' throat about 20 years ago. An excellent blend for Strep, Bacteria, Viruses, etc.

Prevention:  Good hand hygiene and not sharing food, beverages, eating utensils or toothbrushes are the best ways to avoid strep throat. If your child catches it, sanitize his or her eating utensils in hot soapy water or the dishwasher. Get your child a new toothbrush once he or she is no longer contagious—but still on antibiotic treatment—advises University of Maryland. Otherwise, the bacteria can survive in the toothbrush and cause re-infection.

Western Botanical's makes an Herbal Throat Spray that has worked miracles for many.

Head Lice.  More common in girls than in boys, head lice typically attack kids ages 3 to 12. The tiny parasitic bugs don’t spread disease and are not a sign of a dirty home.
Prevention: Discourage kids from sharing hairbrushes, combs, hair ornaments, scarves, ribbons, hats and other headwear. Avoiding head-to-head contact during play, as sports and slumber parties curb the spread of lice, I would use Rosemary or  Pest Away essential oil blend, I would put a few drops in your shampoo. It would help prevent getting lice.

Molluscum Contagiosum. Although this skin rash is common in kids ages 1 to 10, many parents have never heard of it. Triggered by a viral infection, it causes pink, white or flesh-colored bumps. As the name suggests, molluscum contagiosum is contagious, mainly through skin-to-skin contact or contact with contaminated objects, such as clothing or toys.
Prevention: Hand hygiene and not sharing personal items, including clothing, towels, and hairbrushes, are the best ways to avoid this skin infection, which typically clears up without treatment in 6 to 12 months. I put a few drops of Vitality essential oil blend in some Shea Butter it seemed to help me.

Childhood of girls being shortened by about a year and a half
Over the last 30 years, we've shortened the childhood of girls by about a year and a half according to a study in 2007 it was reported - early puberty for the Breast Cancer Fund, an advocacy group. The percentage of white girls showing signs of puberty by age seven has more than doubled in the 14 years since the study came out.
First, there's the problem of pollution by toxins that affect hormonal systems. The water supply, for instance, has become polluted with some of the 30,000-100,000 chemicals used commercially in the US, as well as by pharmaceutical drugs and prescription hormones like HRT, birth control pills, and growth hormones for farm animals, so it would be especially concentrated in cheese!

We've written repeatedly about the fact that various toxins in common use have estrogenic effects, particularly endocrine disrupters like BPA, which shows up in plastic water bottles,(especially when heated up in a hot car -which extracts the pollutants from the plastic) baby bottles, and the lining of many of the canned foods on our shelves. It's the petrochemical-based xenoestrogens in the environment that cause the greatest harm. Xenoestrogens are considerably more potent than estrogen made by the ovaries -- some even potent in amounts as small as a billionth of a gram. The body can't produce enough natural progesterone to oppose the xenoestrogens, which leads to a host of severe health problems, including early puberty as well as increased risk of cancers, tumors, weight gain, depression, autoimmune deficiency, and so on.

There has been an astonishing increase in the number of boys born without fully descended testicals, a condition known as cryptorchidism 6.  Still, we don't know all the effects of the toxins our kids regularly get exposed to, and few children in the developed world are completely immune, given the similar chemicals in the air, the soil, our food, and household products.
Studies show a positive correlation between high consumption of animal protein and early puberty. In fact, the relationship is somewhat astounding: A recent British study found that girls who ate high quantities of meat and cheese at age seven were 75 percent more likely to start menstruating early compared to girls who had the lowest level of meat and cheese intake. But is that because of the meat itself, or the hormones fed to the meat to promote growth?

Children under the age of ten or eleven typically aren't ready, either psychologically or emotionally, for puberty. In addition, early development puts them at greater risk for various problems, including increased risk of cancers, drinking, drug use, eating disorders, behavioral problems and attempted suicide, according to a 2007 report on early puberty by Sandra Steingraber. And because early puberty means that girls have estrogen in their bodies over a longer period of time they are at higher risk for developing breast and uterine cancers.

The solution by some in the medical community, not surprisingly, is pharmaceutical. Girls can take hormone treatments that slow down their development. Synthetic hormones to counter synthetic hormones --how ridiculous can you get!? Of course, such treatments do have certain risks and side effects, not the least of which is that the residue could end up in the drinking water supply and have who knows what effects on future generations.

A healthier solution is to do your best to get off the pharmaceutical-synthetics merry-go-round. Rather than exposing young children to yet more drugs, perhaps it makes better sense to emphasize prevention. In other words, don't let your kids gorge on meat and dairy. Make sure they get exercise. Use filtration systems for your air and water. Avoid plastics and synthetics in your house whenever you can. And if you do all that and your daughter nevertheless needs a bra by age eight, shower her with love and support and teach her the facts of life. You might consider using a natural progesterone cream to balance the potential harm posed by all that excess estrogen exposure. This step is critical in counteracting the deleterious long-term effects of exposure to environmental xenoestrogens that may have triggered the premature maturation in the first place.

And above all don't allow your girls to be vaccinated with gardasil or other pollutants - because of the side effects listed below,
"Young girls are experiencing severe headaches, dizziness, temporary loss of vision and some girls have lost consciousness during what appear to be seizures, major back spasms, paralysis, dehydration, memory loss and tremors and may become unresponsive, daily illnesses of nausea, exhaustion, vomiting, pain and hair loss."

The delicious sweet and tart flavor of Cherries is matched by remarkable Health Benefits

Cherries are a rich source of:

  • vitamin C
  • potassium
  • boron, a mineral that plays an essential role in bone health, especially for women.

Cherries Fight Inflammation

Cherries are important for their ability to control inflammation. A growing body of scientific research indicates that inflammation contributes to diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, and obesity.

Sweet or tart, cherries are a powerhouse of anti-inflammatory nutrients.

Natural Sources, Black Cherry Concentrate unsweetened

A study from University of California at Davis found that regular consumption of cherries for 28 days produced a decrease in biochemical signs of inflammation in blood, including a 25 percent reduction in C-reactive protein (CRP), the most widely studied marker of inflammation. Elevation of CRP in blood is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Cherries Better Than Aspirin for Pain?

According to research done at Michigan State University the anthocyanins that make cherries red could also help relieve pain more effectively than aspirin. The study found that anthocyanins were potent antioxidants that could prevent oxidative damage and also inhibited enzymes called cyclooxygenase-1 and -2 (Cox 1 and 2), which is similar in the way anti- inflammatory drugs seek to reduce pain. The study appeared in the Journal of Natural Products published by the American Chemical Society.

Lead researcher Muralee G. Nair, Ph.D., Professor at Michigan State University College of Agriculture & Natural Resources, noted about this cherry effect "It is as good as ibuprofen and some of the nonsteriodal anti-inflammatory drugs." Nair said that his lab results indicate that consuming 20 tart cherries could provide anti-inflammatory benefits.

Finding a natural way to reduce pain is important, given the serious side effects from common pain relievers called NSAIDs, examples of which include Advil, Motrin, Aleve and aspirin. 

Cherries and Gout

Another study from the University of California at Davis found that a single dose of cherries reduced the blood level of uric acid in healthy women. Excess uric acid causes gout, a very painful type of arthritis. The use of cherries to prevent gout is well established in Western folk medicine.

You can enjoy the benefit of cherries all year round with unsweetened cherry juice, unsweetened cherry juice concentrate, or frozen organic pitted cherries, which make a delicious snack or dessert.

And don't forget about incorporating anti-inflammatory foods like cherries into daily life. Here is a cherry recipe from a book, The Fat Resistance Diet, an anti-inflammatory program featuring foods that help cut inflammation.

Cinnamon Lemon Poached Pears with Cherry Syrup

2 Ripe Pears
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/8 Cup Chopped Almonds
1 Cup of Water
2 Sprigs of Mint
1 Tablespoon Cherry Concentrate

Peel and core pears. Put pear, water, cherry concentrate, lemon juice and cinnamon in a saucepan. Cover and simmer for 7-10 minutes or until fork tender. With a slotted spoon remove and plate pears. Simmer liquid until syrup is reduced to desired consistency and spoon on pears. Top with chopped almonds and mint. Serves two.
