Summer Swimming Fun

It's time for pool side fun. If you plan to install a pool, here are the Pros and Cons of Saltwater Pools vs Chlorine Pools.

Read all about our Swimming Protocol that will keep you moving towards good health this summer.

Start with Taurine and Common Birch or Silver Birch or Fig Tree.

Taurine – 1 - 2 X a Day for 10 days. (Either open capsule and empty contents in mouth with water or place contents in 1 oz of water room temperature until dissolved. First drink swish in mouth then swallow) after eating.

Common Birch, or Silver Birch or Fig Tree – 25 Drops in 1 oz of water 2 X a Day for 12 days. After eating.

Begin those remedies at the beginning of swimming season and monthly thru swimming season. After every swim take at least 1 Taurine. If you start belching or passing gas before the next remedy time, start the protocol immediately.

Chlorine stops the production of protease (protein digestion) and lipase (fat digestion). When you pass gas that smells you are not processing your proteins. When you belch after eating fatty products, you are not digesting your fats. You can do this protocol anytime you have those symptoms, but definitely monthly during swimming season.

Sunscreen

Why is sunscreen better in Europe? Find out here.

This study gives detailed information about the 40 best Organic Sunscreens.

When to Apply Sunscreen: A good way to know when is an optimum time to be in the sun is when your shadow is as long as you are. So, watch the kiddos and their shadow and make sure to apply the sunscreen when their shadow is smaller than they are, until then it is good to get the sun on their skin.

Cocoa Butter which can be found at Whole Foods is one of the easiest ways ways to protect yours skin. It places a protective barrier over the skin and is good for scars and wrinkles. Here is an article about Everything You Need to Know About Cocoa Butter.

Traveling with your children in the car? Don't forget to put the shades up on the sunny side of the car so they don't get sunburned.

After Care for Sunburns. We like Coconut oil and always keep our aloe vera in the refrigerator. Here are some home remedies that also help.

Sunburns can do damage internally and externally. The Kidneys have to process the sunburn for the body so, we suggest additional kidney support for sunburns which includes NADH and BioPlasma.

Sunglasses & Sun Gazing

Sunglasses can be a blessing. We tend to forget we get vitamin D from the sun. We want to remind you to take the sunglasses off your kids for a few moments each day when they are outside. A vitamin D deficiency is the most common vitamin deficiency in the world today. In fact, an estimated 40% to 60% of the world’s adult population don’t get enough vitamin D.

Dark tinted glasses block more light than regular sunglasses, but they still don't eliminate harsh glare as do polarized lenses. Here are the Pros and Cons of Polarized Sunglasses.

Read about The Health Benefits of Sungazing. We suggest you do more research if this article appeals to you.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Heat exhaustion is characterized by excessive thirst, heavy sweating, nausea, and feeling lightheaded.

Summertime rule: Drink more water. Sip water every 15 to 20 minutes. When you feel hungry, drink water. Add lemon or lime to your water if you don't like the taste of pure water. Here is an article about Why Hydration is Important.

Hydration Protocol

PTM – 1 - 2 X a Day for 10 days. After eating.

Bioplasma – Dissolve 10 tablets under tongue 3 X a day for 10 Days. No Food or Water 10 minutes before or after. (Concerning the Bioplasma, since it is homeopathic, avoid touching the pellets. Pour them into cap and toss in mouth. Also keep away from cell phones, tablets, microwaves, and televisions).

Begin this protocol at the beginning of summer and monthly thru the summer. Additionally add minerals to your water (we prefer Trace Minerals) and add electrolytes (We suggest Electrolyte Stamina) to your daily regime during the summer and especially any time you participate in Fun Sweaty Activities!

Heatstroke is when the body stops sweating. Sweating allows heat to be released from the body so if you aren't sweating and you should be...

Apply cool water clothes to your skin. When the water evaporates, you'll feel cooler.

Juice Cucumbers. Cucumbers can improve sweat production by increasing hydration.

Caffeine is a diuretic. Let go of the excess coffees and teas and stick to water.

JOEL HARPER, Celebrity trainer, recommends you drink soaked Chia Seeds at breakfast or for an afternoon snack. Chia Seeds float around inside and absorb 9 to 12 times their weight in water, which helps prolong hydration. Do not eat chia seeds if you are already dehydrated.you are already dehydrated.

Some individuals wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. If you are one of them and you don't have the urge to pee, you are dehydrated.

Electrolyte Stamina works for leg cramps.

Say Goodbye to Mosquitoes

There are numerous plants to place on your porch, deck, and outdoor living spaces that keep the mosquitoes away. Citronella plants, penny royal, and mint all do the trick.

Citronella torches and Bug Zappers also work.

If mosquito's love to bite you carry Mrs. Myers Dryer sheets in lavender. Dab Lavender essential oil around the ankles and wrists. We have not found any of the wrist bands currently being sold to have enough health benefits to take the chemical risk.

CDC confirms oil of lemon eucalyptus as effective as Deet. Read the article here.

Another alternative is TerraShield which is a doTERRA essential oil spray. I personally use the spray and add lemongrass when I hike. This blend is safe for children and you can read about TerraShield here.

Food Contamination and Poisoning

Foodborne Illness Peaks in Summer – What can you do to prevent it?

Year after year we hear and read the same advice: Handle food carefully in the summer because ‘food poisoning,’ is more prevalent in temperatures between 90 and 110 degrees.

Here are some prevention tips:

Clean: Wash hands and surfaces often.

Separate: Don’t cross contaminate. When packing the cooler for an outing, wrap raw meats, poultry and fish securely and separately to keep their juices away from other food.

Never place cooked food on the same plate that previously held raw food unless the plate has first been washed in hot, soapy water.

Cook: Proper temperatures.

Poultry (whole, pieces & ground) 165 °F /74 °C

Ground meats 160 °F /71 °C

Beef, pork, lamb and veal (steaks, roasts & chops): 145 °F /63 °C

Chill: Refrigerate promptly and keep cold food cold.

Stinky, Stinky, Stinky

Make your own deodorant. A quick Google search will provide you with a vast array of recipes. Here’s a simple one:

1/3 cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons baking soda

1/3 cup arrowroot powder

10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil (do not use a hot oil such as cinnamon).

The unscented CRYSTAL mineral deodorant has no Aluminum Chlorohydrate and is Paraben Free. We have tested this in our office and found it safe for use.

My love for you is in-tents. Have summer fun and reach out to our office if you find yourself in need of our services or would like to have any of your products tested.
