    You certainly love your children; however, are you paying close attention to the living habits you are teaching them? Are you seriously concerned about what they eat, drink, breathe, and touch?

    In an environment that is pH balanced, the immune system remains strong and disease can’t get in. If your pH is acidic, your immune system becomes weaker, making your body vulnerable to illness. When you or your kids get sick, it is because of the unhealthy habits and bad choices we incur in.

    In order to ensure your kids grow up healthy and strong, pay attention to these tips and reinforce them both at home and away from it:

    1. Free their bodies of toxins
    Our bodies are capable of healing and cleaning themselves as long as our immune system is healthy. Today’s environment is plagued with toxins, chemicals, and pesticides that are ingested by your children in the foods they eat, the air they breathe, and the things they touch. Nowadays, in order to be completely healthy, we have to attack the problem from the root; otherwise, we will be only treating symptoms. Kids should exercise regularly and must have healthy sleep schedules. They should not be exposed to stress, should learn about personal hygiene care, and should get regular spinal adjustments to improve their health as they grow. You may know about all this, but it is time you put it to practice.

    2. Teach them to eat healthy foods and get them away from junk foods
    What you feed your kids determines their health to a great extent. Healthy food will keep their cells vigorous and their immune system strong; it will energize them and give them all the nutrients they need to enjoy perfect health. Sadly, our society has bombarded your children with the promise of endless fun and excitement through highly processed and fast foods that have no nutritional value and are loaded with refined sugars and grains, chemicals, additives, and preservatives, not to mention the ones loaded with antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides, artificial ingredients, and heavy metals. This junk tastes good, but gives no energy and doesn’t nourish their cells to help them work efficiently. On the other hand, foods like organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains such as brown rice, millet, buckwheat, and oats, provide many vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

    3. Teach them healthy habits to prevent disease
    Our bodies are composed of 80% water. This liquid is indispensable to prevent sickness and to heal the body. Water carries crucial elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers throughout the body, and it greatly improves digestion, the absorption of nutrients, skin hydration, and cleansing of the body, boosting its health. It’s the ultimate detox cleanser! In other words, many diseases can be prevented by learning the habit of drinking lots of water; for example, headaches, hypertension, ulcers, morning sickness, back pain, asthma, fatigue, and slow metabolism, are just some of the aches and illnesses that can be improved or even disappear by keeping the body well hydrated.

    By teaching your kids healthy habits, you are making sure their energy stays intact; however, this is just the beginning. These tips work in terms of prevention, so, the earlier you enforce them, the better the quality of life your kids will experience. Even if it means a drastic change of habit, your kids’ health is worth it.
