You vs The Common Cold

That is the title match this fall and winter…how many times will you get sick. It starts when the kids pick up something and bring home their runny nose and sore throat. Or when you are sitting on the Skytrain beside someone who smells like Vicks Vap-O-Rub and has tissues stuffed in their sleeves…that’s it…you know you are going to get it eventually…

How Would It Feel to sail through winter without a cold? Impossible, right? If you are convinced of that, then stop reading this and go to the store and stock up on your favourite Over The Counter Remedy…

If you believe that you can BOOST your immune system and provide your body with the necessary nourishment to be strong,  vital and be able to stay healthy in the face of a viral onslaught, then I want to talk to you!!

How would it feel to have the right nutritional products in your cupboard. Here’s an idea, you can clear out your over the counter meds and make room for some natural, healing, nourishing supplements.

My family is living proof. I have 4 kids in school, in rec centre programs, swimming lessons, and a business in which I see a variety of people face to face each day. We don’t live in a bubble. I have not been sick in so long that I actually can’t remember my last cold. I am thinking that the year may have started in 19…

My kids, they get the odd sniffle or sore throat, but they are done in a couple of days. No sick time away from school…no diarrhea attacks. I have to confess, we had a croupy cough that just made the rounds last week…two of the four got it, and I think they coughed 5-10 times, and it was done. I used to think my eldest daughter would be destined to get croup every year. She used to get it so bad that it would set in in October/November every year for weeks. I would take her outside to breath the cooler air, I would put her in the steamy bathroom…nothing helped for long. I though…well, I have fall to summer chest congestion, so she does too. Oh well…but she hasn’t gotten her cough back in the last 2 years… and my second son was prescribed an inhaler (!) and nebulizer in 2010. He used it twice. I changed their diets, worked with their mold and dust and food¬† intolerances and make sure they take their supplements each day. No more cough, no more anxiety, no more mommy-guilt.

If you are looking for a nutritional breakthrough, then we need to talk. Come and see me and let me help you have a different experience this winter.
