Have you heard of the “Hygiene Hypothesis”? The basic gist of this is that some of us are living in a world that is too clean. Children who live in a super clean house, using anti-bacterial everything, with no animals, and no dust bunnies bouncing around are more likely to develop allergies, asthma, and auto immune disorders. Kids need to have the chance to get dirty in order to build a stronger immune system. The immune system needs to be stimulated in order to work properly. It is OK for our kids to get sick. It may be inconvenient for us, and our own schedules, but giving our children permission to be sick and allowing them the time to heal helps them build a strong/healthy/active immune system. Ditch the “antibacterial” products. All we are doing is over exposing ourselves to antibiotics and building more resistant bugs that we can’t defend ourselves against, because our immune systems aren’t up to par. Besides, most colds and flu’s are viral – not bacterial.
not a problem in my house. we have plenty of dust bunnies.

thank you for the article! lot's of useful info in there.

^-- I love how they say it's okay for our kids to be sick because it's building up their immune system.. Great stuff..

I do use Probiotics and Fish oil on my 2 year old.. Once A.J is old enough, he'll be getting fish oil as well.. Great brain food!

Oh. And the Vitamin D is important too.. One of my Pharmacisits told me that having a Vitamin D deficiency may cause cancer.. We should all get our Vitamin D levels tested..

Low vitamin D levels again linked to cancer risk
