It’s quite ironic that as I sit down to write this post, my muscles are aching and I have a
barking cough. I was just commenting (read, gloating) last week that I managed to avoid the illness that plagued Tim, Alegria and Isaac on our trip to Malaysia and Singapore in January.
I couldn’t quite believe it actually, because generally it is me who gets sick and has the
terrible immune system and the others go about their lives without so much as a sniffle.
Well, I spoke too soon and now I have it!
Not great timing considering the kids are back to the “germ factory” that is school and I am up to my eyeballs with work for our newest venture, The Bush Bus.
This year, I have decided that I need to work on my immunity because it really is terrible. I had glandular fever as a teenager that had a real impact on me, I taught swimming to kids and was ALWAYS sick (I guess that comes with the territory when they cough in your face all the time), then I had a few good years before I had my own children so again I caught everything they did and often my symptoms were worse than theirs.
In September 2017, I got Influenza A. It was the year that over 100 people died from it and I remember reading about the mother who had her baby whilst affected and didn’t get to see her newborn for months. Thankfully she pulled through, many didn’t.
I have never felt so sick in my life. Now when people who have never had the flu say “I’m so sick, I have the flu” when it’s just a cold I want to shake them and scream “YOU HAVE NO IDEA”!!I was put into “quarantine”at our house and the kids weren’t allowed in my room without us all wearing a mask. They had to stay away from me so they could only come to the foot of the bed. There were no cuddles. Isaac was 4 and Alegria 7 and they couldn’t touch their mum. It was horrible to be asked every day “Mumma are you better? Can I have a snuggle?” and to have to answer “no”. My heart breaks for all those parents and kids out there that live this daily, we were lucky that it only lasted a few weeks.
I don’t want to have another year of sickness for our family so I need to take some steps to improve everyone’s immune systems.
Sambucol Kids Immunity Gummies are a great way to support your children’s immune
system all year round, with each bottle containing 50 tasty immune support gummies. Their formulation contains Elderberry, Vitamin C and Zinc which can help support the immune system and provide antioxidants to reduce free radicals formed in the body. Please note, it can’t be used for children with asthma or allergies due to the bee products also contained in the gummies (be mindful of this, I know I need to be as Alegria has asthma).
Whenever I talk about products such as these, I need to put a legal notice in. Please ALWAYS READ THE LABEL; FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE; IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST, TALK TO YOUR HEALTH PROFESSIONAL; THIS MEDICINE MAY NOT BE RIGHT FOR YOU. READ THE LABEL BEFORE PURCHASE.
I’d love to read in the comments how you supported your family’s immune systems. Was it a change in diet or more sleep? Did you use essential oils or try supplements? Have you used Sambucol before? Would you recommend them?
I wish you good health in 2019! – Georgina
