Parents: Nutritionist Tips to Keep YOU Healthy When the Kids Go Back to School


Often, parents focus on what they can do to keep their kids healthy - mentally, emotionally, and physically, and ignore their own health needs. Simple lifestyle changes can ensure good health for parents this Fall as the kids go back to school. Rima Aridi, Nupeutics Health's In-House Nutritionist, has seven immunity-boosting tips that should be a top priority for any adult. 

“Sending the kids back to school, especially this year, can be just as stressful to parents as it can be to kids. Everyone in the family needs to keep their immunities up,” says Nupeutics Health’s Rima Aridi Abifaker, RD, CLEC. “Things like prioritizing physical activity is crucial, and supplements can give you the ‘edge’ on immune health when you need it most - everything from gut health to aid in getting the sleep you need to stay healthy.”

 

Aridi has some simple tips to stay healthy this Fall and the whole year through. Seven Immune Boosting Tips For Parents: 

  1. Get adequate sleep: Adults need 7-9 hours of sleep per day to truly restore the mind and body and fortify immunity. Practicing good sleep hygiene means sticking to a sleep schedule, incorporating calming pre-bedtime rituals, disconnecting from electronics early in the evening, and limiting caffeine as well as alcohol. An all-natural supplement that is herbal and non-addictive can help balance the natural sleep cycle. Nupeutics Sleep Master can help reduce anxiety, insomnia, and restless feelings but also helps to ease tension headaches with natural ingredients like chamomile, melatonin, magnesium, and linden flower. 
  2. Eat a diet rich in vegetables and fruit: They are natural immunity boosters. Chef Mareya Ibrahim suggests fruits and vegetables high in Vitamin C since the body does not produce it on its own. Think citrus: zesty grapefruit, orange, or lemon plus red pepper - one red bell pepper carries three times the amount of a Florida orange! 
  3. Limit alcohol consumption: While alcohol is a sedative and can bring on the drowsy desire to sleep, it can reduce REM sleep and cause sleep disruptions. Notably, alcohol can suppress the immune system, and the body may take longer to recognize and respond to developing an infection.
  4. Reduce stress by engaging in regular physical activity: Exercise is a powerful stress reducer. Not only does it reduce adrenaline and cortisol (the body’s stress hormones), but it also stimulates the production of chemicals in the brain that are the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators - endorphins. Working in a daily walk can have a profound impact on stress in the body. 
  5. Promote a disease-fighting gut microbiome by incorporating dietary prebiotics and probiotics: There is a strong link between gut health and immunity. Microbes in the lower intestinal tract help us digest food, fight harmful bacteria, and regulate the immune system. Much of the immune system resides in the gut, so when the gut becomes unbalanced with unhealthy levels of certain bacteria, it’s vital to restore the balance. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeast that can help restore the balance in the gut. Prebiotics come from types of carbs (mostly fiber) that humans can’t digest. The beneficial bacteria in your gut eat this fiber. Eating and taking supplements with both can restore or maintain balance in the gut. An additional option to get the microbiome healthy and happy is the Nupeutics Health Microbiome Master, a plant-based high-quality herbal cleanse with rich antioxidants designed to detoxify the gut, support clear, healthy skin, and promote weight loss. Help the “good guys” in the gut win! 
  6. Avoid smoking: According to the CDC, cigarette smoke contains more than 7,000 chemical compounds. Many of them can interfere with the immune system. In short, smoking lowers immunities and also makes the immune system less successful at fighting disease. Simply put, nothing good comes from smoking.
  7. Consider supplements that can support a healthy immune system: Look for supplements that contain zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D, and elderberry - all powerful for immunity.  Nupeutics Colon Master and Nupeutics Microbiome Master are a beneficial supplement to eliminate waste, toxins, bloating, and aid digestive issues. It’s an all-natural herbal blend designed to cleanse the colon, alleviate digestive problems, and get or maintain a healthy gut and a healthy life.

Fall is an excellent time for all adults, parents or not, to check-in on everyday lifestyle choices. Simple changes can lead to a robust immune system.  Incorporating self-care into daily activities has a powerful effect. Nupeutics Health products help reach health goals, whether dealing with hormone health, gut health, or even stress reduction.
