At any rate, I’m gung ho to do everything I can to prevent a serious bout with the back to school bug for Rowan.We have incorporated in our bedtime routine a part when she takes her “Mimi Medicine”. She calls my mom Mimi, therefore the tinctures that my mom makes are known as Mimi Medicine in our house. What I give her depends on what I think she might need. I usually reach for Minerals for Kids or Tummy Ease. Lately I’ve been mixing a bit of Xiao Yao Plus in with some of the others of the kids line. This week I’ve been reaching for my immune building tinctures, especially Immune Help for Kids. I’ll continue with this until she starts after Labor Day, then keep a close eye on her and switch to Sniffles for Kids if I see any sign of the dreaded back-to-school bug.
It is also helpful to start the whole family on a little prevention routine, because what comes home so often gets passed around. Thankfully the baby was left out of that when my husband brought home summer bug #1, but the rest of us weren’t so lucky.
