Top 10 Back to School Season tips that can benefit everyone~Even if you don't have School Age Children!

No one is Immune to Back to School Germs...They are everywhere you go!

Back To School Season Tips:

1.Boost your immune system

with a shot of Tahiti Trader Noni juice every morning. It is a great way to start your day on track, give you natural energy and give your student the immune system boost they need!

Since ancient times Noni juice has been valued for its effectiveness in fighting infections and other ailments attributing to the presence of valuable Polysaccharides. These helpful components stimulate the activity of white blood cells which play an important role in exerting such protective effect. Scopoletin present in Noni juice possess anti-bacterial, anti-mutagenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-histamine properties which significantly contribute in sustaining the immune defense mechanism of the body.

2. If you have school aged children at home...

Make sure they stay home when they're really sick. No one wants to see kids with pouring noses and barking coughs at school. But even the American Academy of Pediatrics says most common illnesses, like a cold, are not really harmful – though they certainly are a nuisance. So how do you know when your child should stay at home? States have different rules, but in general, the AAP recommends asking yourself three questions:

  • Is your child too sick to comfortably take part in activities?
  • Does your child need more care than the school staff can give without affecting the health and safety of other children?
  • Could other children get sick from being near your child?

If you answer yes to either of the first two questions, your child should not go to school.

If you don’t feel the first two questions apply to your child but you think your child’s illness is contagious, it’s best to keep them at home, if possible, until the risk of contagion has passed.

3. Wash your hands.

It can’t be said enough: Encourage kids to wash their hands often, with regular soap and water. As a backup, put hand sanitizer in backpacks or lunch boxes. The use of hand sanitizer in one elementary school study reduced absenteeism due to infection by almost 20 percent. But don’t choose hand cleansers labeled “antibacterial.” Health authorities question their benefits and warn about possible health hazards in antibacterial soaps and in antibacterial hand sanitizers and wipes.

Proper hand hygiene has been shown to reduce the spread of gastrointestinal illnesses by 31 percent and respiratory illnesses by 21 percent. Teach kids about germs. Remind them to wash their hands throughout the day, especially after using the bathroom, before eating lunch and after using shared school equipment, like computer keyboards.

4. Be hands off when coughing and sneezing.

Coughing, sneezing and having unclean hands spread serious illnesses, such as flu and respiratory viruses. Kids think they’re doing the right thing when they cover coughs with their hands, but that’s a sure way to spread germs. It’s best to use a tissue to cover a cough or sneeze (and directly throw it away and wash those hands). Realistically though, tissues aren’t always available. So teach kids to cover their nose and mouth in the crook of their elbow and NOT to cough or sneeze into their hands.

5. Keep fingers away from your eyes, nose and mouth.

Your hands are picking up germs constantly. When you touch your eyes, nose and mouth, you’re putting germs on the mucus membrane express, giving them the fast track to making you sick. Teach children to avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth. And: Wash. Those. Hands!

6. Wipe it all down.

Teachers in the know put cleansing wipes on their students’ school supplies list. Cleaning frequently shared surfaces, such as computers, door handles and tables, can help prevent the spread of germs. Avoid buying disinfecting wipes with antibacterial properties – some chemicals used in these products may trigger asthma and allergies, and are suspected of creating bacteria-resistant “superbugs.”

7. Beware of bag-teria.

Backpacks are excellent for carrying books and school supplies. They also have the potential to carry bacteria, including fecal matter. Just imagine what happens when your kids toss their backpacks onto the kitchen counter when they get home. To prevent spreading those hitchhiking germs to surfaces where you prepare and eat food, make tables and counter tops a no-go zone for backpacks. Occasionally wipe off the bottom of backpacks with an appropriate cleanser.

8. Get your body – and immune system – moving.

Physical activity can rev up your body’s response to illness, so make sure your kids have plenty of physical play time. According to one study, people who exercise regularly (five or more times a week) get fewer colds, or at least colds of shorter duration, than people who aren’t as active. Researchers found that exercise stimulates the movement of immune cells and prepares them to fight invading pathogens. In other words, the more your children exercise, the more ready their immune systems are for battling bacteria and viruses.

9. Go to bed!

Sleep helps your body recharge. A chronic lack of sleep can affect the immune system. When kids don’t get enough sleep, they may be more likely to get sick when exposed to a virus. The CDC and NIH recommend that school-age children get at least 10 hours of sleep daily.

10. Don’t be a complete germophobe.

Don’t go overboard with the cleanliness. In the first year of life, babies exposed to household germs, animal dander and insect allergens appear to have a lower risk of developing asthma and allergies. Sterilizing your environment may do more harm than good by leading to antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. In an article published in the Scientific American, microbiologist Stuart B. Levy, Ph.D., of Tufts University School of Medicine, explains that regular soap and general cleaning products (without added antibacterials) are just fine. “They do their job,” Levy says.

Top 7 Back To School Health Tips!

Top 7 Back To School Health Tips!

1. Start the day off right.

Eating breakfast as a family is a perfect time to bond and spend quality time together while also preparing a healthy breakfast for the kids. Eggs with whole grain toast, fruit and yogurt, or whole grain unsweetened cereal with milk and berries are several great choices. It is suggested that kids begin their day with a meal consisting of protein and fiber, a winning combination of nutrients that will help them feel satisfied until lunch.

Noni Juice should be added to the daily diet at Breakfast.  It is a great way to start your day on track, give you natural energy and give your student the immune system boost they need! 

Since ancient times Noni juice has been valued for its effectiveness in fighting infections and other ailments attributing to the presence of valuable Polysaccharides. These helpful components stimulate the activity of white blood cells which play an important role in exerting such protective effect. Scopoletin present in Noni juice possess anti-bacterial, anti-mutagenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-histamine properties which significantly contribute in sustaining the immune defense mechanism of the body.

 

2. Get bedtimes on track, and tidy up the sleep patterns.

In the summer, when it’s light after 10 p.m., it’s easy for bedtimes to slip. But with early school wake-up calls coming, it’s key for children and teens to get to bed so they get enough quality sleep. Pediatricians recommend that children age 6 to 12 get 9 to 12 hours of sleep a night, and that teens get 8 to 10 hours a night.

Here are some tips to help children and teens get the sleep they need when they return to school.

  • Power off the devices. “Good sleep hygiene means all devices should be turned off an hour before bedtime,” says Andrea Hoopes, MD, a Kaiser Permanente Washington pediatrician. “This gives their brains time to unplug from the stimulation and the light from phones and computers.” Reading a book or magazine — the old-school-kind — can help kids relax right before bedtime.
  • Consider darkening shades. The clock says it’s bedtime, but it’s still light out. That can interfere with a child’s sleep. Darkening shades can block out distracting light and help your child drift off more easily.
  • Ease off caffeine. Your child or teen should stop drinking anything with caffeine, including sodas and energy drinks, after noon. That way, by bedtime, the stimulant will be out of their system.

Noni, when taken daily, helps improve your sleep so you get a more restful sleep and improves your moods.

3. Nix the added sugar.

The American Heart Association announced that they are suggesting that children and teens ages 2-18 limit added sugar to no more than 6 teaspoons (25 grams) per day. These new guidelines aim to help improve children’s overall diet. Kids who eat foods high in added sugars tend to eat fewer healthy foods that are good for their heart. Added sugar provides no nutritional benefits and is found in a wide range of food from cookies, ketchup, salad dressings, sugar sweetened cereals (even some whole grain ones!), smoothies, to sweetened yogurts. The major culprit of added sugar, however, is soda and sugary drinks including iced tea and fruit punch so it is suggested to limit them from your kids’ diets. The guidelines also suggest that children and teens consume no more than 8 ounces of sugary drinks a week. Sugary drinks, often called “liquid calories,” provide no health benefits.

 Noni Juice helps to curb sugar and junk food cravings when taken on a daily basis!

4. Pack a healthy snack.

If you are packing snacks for your kids, here is a perfect opportunity to include at least one fruit and veggie. Smart snacks include fresh fruit (apple, pear, and bananas), Greek yogurt, baby carrots with hummus, roasted edamame, and of course a bottle of water. Nuts or nut butter squeeze packs are also great choices if a school allows nuts; if not, they are a great go-to snack when kids get home.

 

5. Keep portions healthy (no measuring cup required!)

Regardless of what you feed your kids, serving healthy portion sizes is really important. You can use the plate method with kids (as long as the plate isn’t oversized!): at dinner, for example, fill half the plate with veggies and a quarter with protein (think fish, chicken, turkey or other lean meats) and the other quarter with a healthy starch (brown rice, sweet potato). To avoid overeating, limit eating in front of the TV and pre-portion snacks into 100 calorie portions.

 

6. Skip the white food (unless it’s cauliflower or white beans).

White bread including bagels, white rice, and white pasta are refined grains and are easy to overeat. Because they contain virtually no fiber, we don’t feel satisfied after eating them. While many kids choose them by default, introducing kids to healthier alternatives including quinoa, whole grain pasta, and brown rice helps them get into the habit of enjoying these grains. No need for kids to cut out starch entirely. Choosing the healthier ones is a far better alternative.


7. Get moving!

Incorporating sports and exercise into your children’s daily routine is a great way to keep them healthy while also keeping their weight in check. If possible, enroll kids in after school activities where possible, enjoy a walk or bike ride with your kids whenever possible, and encourage them to move. If parents engage in physical activity, their kids will follow along.


Hope your school year gets off to a great start!

~Paul M:

This works for me. I have chronic arthritis and have tried different brands of Noni juice over the years. I take about 3 to 4 ounces of Tahiti Trader Noni Juice every day on an empty stomach, split between evening and morning. It relieves my pain considerably better than the well marketed multi level Tahitian Noni brand. I feel as though I can't live without it at this point in time. I will stick with this brand for now.

~Phillip R., Winchester, TN:

I have been using this Noni juice for approximately 2 & 1/2 weeks taking 3 ounces a day. I have noticed that my brain chemistry or feeling of well being is worlds better. My emotional and mental clarity is much better. My right thumbnail that had ceased to grow after a saw accident is now growing and my other finger nails do not break as easy. I have been trying to just feel better without taking medicine. The excruciating pain of my middle lower back has vanished. It was classified as degenerative discs or arthritis. My sleep is worlds better as well as my overall temperament. I have barely started with this good tasting Noni 2-3 weeks now. It’s the truth.

~Thanks for saving my life, A. Fuller

I just wanted you to know how wonderful this product was. I lost over 50 pounds taking this drink. I weighed over 210 pounds and had a really hard time moving around and once I lost the weight I felt 15 years younger! I was a 40 year old woman and had just taken forced retirement from AT&T, and had begun to have a series of health issues, which I'm sure were weight related, but after the weight loss with Tahiti Trader Noni Juice and Nopal Slim Juice blend, I felt better and needless to say I looked a whole lot better!

~A Very Satisfied customer, L.Bargas

I had to write to your company and tell you how amazing I feel since I have been taking your product! I'm a single mother of 3, I work full time and have a somewhat stressful job. I was feeling really achy, tired all the time, and really bad joint pain and was overweight. I was going to the doctors to have tests ran as I could not even do yard work or housework without being bedridden the next day! I have been taking Tahiti Trader Noni Juice and Nopal slim Juice blend, just 1 ounce of each, every morning for the past month and let me tell you!! I have my life back! I have ZERO joint pain, I can clean, cook do yard work and not be bedridden. I wake up in the morning and do not have to creep around until my joints loosen up at all. I feel young again....Thank You Tahiti Trader, for your Noni and Nopal Slim Juice blends, I have lost weight through all this, and your juice gave me what doctors could not help me with! MY HEALTH!
