Why is hand washing so important anyway? My great grandmother used to say “you’ll eat a peck of dirt before you die” which I took to mean, relax and don’t become phobic about the kids getting dirty. Yet before every meal, it was “have you washed your hands yet"?
“Good hand washing is your first line of defense against the spread of many illnesses - and not just the common cold. More serious illnesses such as meningitis, bronchiolitis, influenza, hepatitis A, and most types of infectious diarrhea can be stopped with the simple act of washing your hands.” According to Mary L. Gavin, MD.
Non toxic cleaning supplies for home, kitchen and laundry and Gentle Hand Soap are always wise. Use a 1/4 oz pump dispensor or 1/2 oz pump dispensor as this is supper concentrated. As they say, "a little dab will do ya". And I do mean a little dab! Save lots of money due to the high concentration. I love the cute hand soap dispencer at each sink.
Natural Immune-strengthening Supplements are a must around our home. Of course this is in addition to daily healthy eating patterns including organic produce: milks, eggs and meat choices whenever possible. Natural Nutritional Supplements are needed to fill the gap and optimize health. Because of the way our foods are grown; transported long distances, processed and then often not cooked in the best way possible at home to maximize nutrition. It just makes good old common sense to add extra Nutritional Supplements during times of stress or to ward of immune challenges. Try Emergency Immune Protection . Suggest at onset and for no more than 7 days, read the lable. I continue with the Natural Immune-strengthing Supplements during cold and flue season or if for some reason I'm feeling out of sorts.
For children it is a good idea to demonstrate and make a routine of handwashing. It's important so make it FUN! Smiley faces or stars on a chart with a reward (NOT food) for remembering. It helped with my young ones until it was a solid habit.
Warm water is important and using a good natural soap helps. Teach everyone in the family to lather up for 10 to 15 seconds and don't forget in-between the fingers the wrists. There have been many studies where it showed that under the finger nails is very important. Rinse and dry with a clean towel or with an air blower when possiable.
To minimize the germs passed around your family, make frequent hand washing a rule for everyone, especially:
"before eating and cooking
after using the bathroom
after cleaning around the house
after touching animals, including family pets
before and after visiting or taking care of any sick friends or relatives
after blowing one's nose, coughing, or sneezing
after being outside (playing, gardening, walking the dog, etc.)
"Don't underestimate the power of hand washing! "
-Mary L Gavin, MD on hand washing
Environment and Health - It all goes together. People who are concerned about the environment and what they can do to be a part of the solution are people who usually are health conscious as well.
Cold and Flu season … sniff & sneeze …. Runny noses abound, children missing school, people either not going to work or going and spreading the ‘love’ around. Yep, it’s that time of year again. So what is a person to do? WASH YOUR HANDS and make sure your natural vitamins and suppliment plan is up to date for the family. Re start your immunte boosters as needed.
