Whatever your situation with the school year ahead looks like for you, I’d like to start by saying


Parents, you got this! You are amazing, you are not alone and we are going to get through this together with our sanity intact.



This year has brought along so many questions, concerns, and difficult decisions as we cope with new challenges on a daily basis. The unpredictability and misinformation has caused massive amounts of stress that has made it difficult to plan ahead.

Decisions around the upcoming school year has left many of us with uncertainty, parent guilt and genuine confusion with the constant shifting and adapting that is expected of us.

And although we CAN'T control the situation or the world around us, we CAN chose to take care of our mind and body by embracing a vitalistic, salutogenic mindset and lifestyle.


Not sure what that means?


Read on to see how you can set yourself and your children up for a healthy school year and beyond with my:

Checklist:


Supplementation for Brain Health,

Gut Health,

and a Strong Immune System


Scientists at John's Hopkins Medicine have been studying a concept that may revolutionize our understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health and even our thoughts.


The brain-gut connection is also certainly applicable when trying to understand how certain vitamins, nutrients, and supplements are able to help our children thrive.


Here are 3 of my absolute favorite recommendations to help support developing nervous systems, immune systems, and enteropathic nervous systems in children:


1. Probiotics

SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete is a powerful prebiotic and probiotic that supports optimal digestive and immune health. It contains 4 billion CFU per serving in spore form – 99% of which will reach your lower digestive track alive. It also contains DE111® and LactoSpore®, which are two probiotic strains that promote digestive health and support normal digestion, as well as Prebiotic beta-glucan that strengthens the immune system and supports the growth of probiotics.


2. Omega 3's


This is a crowd favorite in my own home (and apparently on FullScript also). This chewable strawberry flavored Omega 3 supplement contains EPA and DHA which is essential for brain function and decreasing inflammation. Because it is currently backordered (it's that popular!) I have several other comparable recommendations - so if you are in a rush to get a quality Omega 3 supplement in your child's system before school is back in session, you can email me directly at drb@rochousecallchiro.com.


3. Multivitamins

For those days when our diet is less than adequate, Nordic Berry Gummies are my go-to! Nordic Berries contain essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants growing kids need, including full-spectrum B vitamins, which is hard to find in a gummy. No wonder they’re the #1 Children’s Vitamin in the U.S.! These easy-to-chew multivitamins come in two great flavors—sweet-and-sour citrus that captures the taste of Norwegian cloudberries, and cherry berry. Nordic Berries make an ideal companion to any Nordic Naturals omega-3 product.


As always, please reach out to me directly pertaining individualized guidance based on your situation and child's needs.
