✏️Back to school?- medicines/supplements
Just because Covid is in our environment, does not mean the other illnesses are gone. The runny nose. The stuffy nose. The sore throats. The upset stomachs. They still exist.
And with kids going back to school, those above common illnesses will spread.
A few years ago, I found myself unprepared and trying to find supplements/cough help at 10:00pm. I swore that night I’d never be unprepared in my medicine cabinet ever again.
So pictured above are what I give ALL of my kids if someone is complaining of being sick. I want to try to nip the illness in the bud and help the other family members from getting it. (Usually a vit c & d, probiotic, elderberry or immune support).
70% of the immune system is in the gut. Unfortunately many supplements and over the counter medicines have these ingredients which can actually disrupt the gut, the thing you don’t want when trying to fight an illness:
GMO sugar, soy, or corn
“The molecules of synthetic colorants are small, and the immune system finds it difficult to defend the body against them.”1
“It is known that the gut microbiota plays a key role in human metabolism & recent studies indicated that some artificial sweeteners such as saccharin could perturb gut microbiome and further affect host health.” 2
3️⃣Gmo crops with glyphosate
“disrupts the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids by gut bacteria”3
4️⃣artificial preservatives- like polysorbate 80
“microbiota can be directly impacted by these commonly used food additives, in a manner that subsequently drives intestinal inflammation”4
“A huge proportion of your immune system is actually in your GI tract,” says Dan Peterson, professor of pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. “The immune system is inside your body, and the bacteria are outside your body.” And yet they interact. For example, certain cells in the lining of the gut spend their lives excreting massive quantities of antibodies into the gut.5
