Season of Germs
Many people think that with school starting and kids being exposed to other kids, that it’s natural to come down with every germ that comes by. The truth is that it is normal to get sick with a nice good fever about once a year. If you or your child is getting sick more often than that, then perhaps there is an immune issue that needs to be addressed. Perhaps you or your child is consuming sugar, which lowers the immune system by 50% for 5-7 hours. Having sugar cereal for breakfast, soda with lunch, and ice cream for dessert after dinner is a recipe for a snotty season. Fortunately, you can remove the items above and sail through this germ-fest unscathed.
