Ok, so im going to play out a scenario and I want you to continue reading until the end if this relates to you or you’ve ever had this happen!
Lets say you and/or your babies get #sick . Your #throathurts , your #headhurts , you sound like a chain #smoker , and can’t stop #coughing , the works. So you reach for some over the counter #meds to help….but they don’t. Or it seems like it takes them a week or two to even touch it. Why is that? Lets talk about some possible reasons...
(And before anyone gets all huffy and puffy about this, I’m not saying to not see a doctor or take what they prescribe you. I’m also not against #modernmedicine . I am simply sharing some information that I have been made aware of that helped us.)
Up first, #Sugar . Sometimes labeled as #sucrose . Probably one of the WORST things we could consume while sick. And I’m not talking about the cookies and donuts or sugary drinks. I’m still talking about #OTCs . Most contain anywhere from 10-80 percent sugar, averaging out at about 55 percent in most products. And I’m not talking about natural simple sugars found in #wholefoods . We are talking about the kind that is very hard for the body to break down, the processed kind. It can cause #inflammation in the body which can prolong sickness, or even cause new symptoms/sickness to form. Researchers found that processed sugar consumption can weaken your natural defenses and make it harder to recoverfrom being sick. Inflammation can cause us to feel Feverish , Chills, Fatigue/loss of energy, #Headaches , Loss of appetite, Muscle stiffness and way more. So def not what we want when we already feel that way.
Next is #Dyes . Which I’m still trying to figure out why they are even in there. This one is bad for many reasons. The most commonly known reason is it can cause hyperactivity in #children , #adhd , ect.. But did you also know that it has been linked to cancer and other #diseases as well as intestinal inflammation and damage, leading to leaky #gut . A leaky gut can cause certain gastrointestinal conditions such as #celiacdisease , #Crohn ’sdisease, and #irritablebowelsyndrome . (Continued in comments) - 40 minutes ago
