And, eating the right foods is important too. As the fall weather approaches, are you dreading the sore throats and illness that often come a few weeks in to each school year? You don’t have to be.
There is a definite link between what we eat and the illnesses we get. We can increase our resistance to disease by making better choices in our diet. Many childhood ailments can be prevented or severity lessened through superior nutrition. Ear infections, strep throats, allergies, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD and ADHD) and even autoimmune diseases can be prevented through sound nutritional practices early in life.
Fresh fruits, raw and cooked vegetables, leafy greens, beans, intact whole grains, raw nuts and seeds should form the foundation of your family’s nutrition. Try to remember the word : G-BOMBS to incorporate these superfoods into your diet regularly.
Use Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds as often as possible. Food preferences and tastes are formed early in life, so the earlier you begin the better. But it is never too late to start.

Be aware, not all coconut oil is equal. Don't put coconut cooking oil on your face!
Here are quick and easy steps to identify the coconut oil superfood that your skin needs.
Basically, there are two kinds of coconut oil, one that comes from sun-dried coconuts and the other from fresh coconuts. Coconut oil extracted from sun-dried coconut and is derived by applying very high heat. Coconut Cooking Oil has many chemicals involved in the refining process and not suitable for skin care.
The other type of coconut oil comes from the freshest of coconuts. What’s notable is that high heat isn’t used in extracting the fruit’s oil. Thus, not only does the resulting oil taste and smell a lot like coconuts, it carries the most nutrients. Dubbed unrefined coconut oil, or organic virgin coconut oil (VCO), this is the coconut oil that you should go for, as it has the most coco nutrients preserved.
Make sure you check labels to be sure it is organic or virgin.
If you’re still not sure if using coconut oil is good for your skin, try applying some on a small skin wound. You’ll be surprised how much faster the wounds will heal with regular application. Then, when your comfortable start using on a "problem area" of your face and watch the improvement.
Luckily, coconut oil has a lot to offer in the anti-inflammatory and analgesic departments. This is the reason why it’s virtually a one-stop shop for many skin irregularities, including eczema, psoriasis, acne and much more. Organic Coconut Oil has been become a staple beauty product and should definitely be added to your face care regiment.
