Welcome to Fall!
Each year at this time we Welcome the cool Autumn breeze and we see our InnerMovement families, teachers and school administrators re-adjusting their schedules & priorities for this "Back to School" time of year. As everyone gets back into the school routine, its important to remember that our teachers, kids and families are exposed to more colds and flu during this season. So it makes it even more important to focus on our health.

To keep our Immune Systems strong we must:
1) Decrease or eliminate sugar. Candy, cookies, soda, cakes, frappuccino's, ice cream etc decrease our immune function. So, even though its Halloween month, ditch the candy if you & your family members want to avoid colds and flu
2) Increase hydration . C onsuming ample fluids like water, coconut water and herbal tea is our first line of defense. Drink at least 50% of your body weight of these fluids in ounces per day. Calculate this for your kids and teach them the importance of drinking water too.
3) Get proper rest. T he immune system is most active during deep sleep , so getting at least 8 hours of sleep preferably falling asleep before midnight will result in the most healing sleep.
4) Keep stress at bay. The str ess  hormone cortisol can suppress the effectiveness of the  immune system. That is why we are more susceptible to infections when we are stressed.
5) Eat foods that support our Immune System . Below are 5 Immune boosting FOODS to Eat During Cold & Flu Season .

If you are having trouble in any of these areas, remember we are here as your health support team. Many of the treatments at InnerMovement help to boost immunity, decrease stress, treat anxiety in teens and adults and help with better sleep. Keep reading to learn more...

5 Foods to eat during Cold & Flu Season
1.   Hippocrates Soup
Soup is one of the most easily digested foods that we can eat. They soothe the body and contain ample water to keep the body hydrated. Hippocrates was known as the father of medicine, and this soup lives up to his name. Find ingredients & recipe for Hippocrates soup listed below. .

2.   Garlic
Garlic (Allium sativum) is one of the key ingredients in the Hippocrates Soup recipe. Back in 460-370 BC, Hippocrates was known to prescribe garlic to his patients to combat respiratory problems, parasites, poor digestion, and fatigue. Garlic has antibiotic properties. Although used commonly in recipes, garlic is a potent healer and has been used medicinally for centuries. In a 2014 study, participants consumed a garlic supplement daily for three months and found that this resulted in fewer colds, compared to those who took the placebo.

3.   Foods Rich in Vit C
Eating foods high in vitamin C as well as consuming a potent supplement can support the immune system. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and immune system booster . Often vitamin C rich foods are best consumed as a juice or smoothie.
Vitamin C-rich foods are also rich in essential minerals, vitamins and high in flavonoids, so in this way, vitamin C rich foods & supplements bolster the immune system.
Fruits with the highest vitamin C include:
  •    Guava is bursting with vitamin C - 419% of the daily value (DV).
  •    Strawberries contain 108% DV of vitamin C
  •    One cup of tomato juice provides 188.9% DV of vitamin C
  •    Orange Juice 67% DV

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates  


4.   Apple Cider Vinegar
Consuming quality apple cider vinegar (ACV) provides many minerals and enzymes. Additionally, ACV can fight off pathogens . This is another tool from the medicine kit of Hippocrates, who used ACV to cleanse wounds thousands of years ago. ACV inhibits bacterial growth, can support healthy blood pressure levels and is good to add to your medicine cabinet during cold and flu season.
How to use ACV : Take 1-2 tablespoons ACV diluted in a glass of water twice per day.

5.   Ginger
Avid sailors praise ginger for how it relieves motion sickness. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal root plant. Ginger has been found to soothe discomfort from nausea the digestive process. Due to the fact that 70% of the immune system is found in the gut, it’s important to ensure that the digestive system is working efficiently.
Ginger, also known as Zingiber officinale Roscoe and Zingiberaceae, is made up of hundreds of compounds, some of which have potent antioxidants and help support anti-inflammatory pathways.
Ginger can be found in the following forms: Fresh root, dried, ginger extract/ ginger oil, tinctures, capsules, and lozenges.


** Nature provides an abundance of plant based foods that boost the immune system by providing essential nutrients and antioxidant qualities. It’s important to avoid eating foods that might cause inflammation and aggravate the immune system such as SUGAR, processed foods, alcohol, soda, fried foods and dairy.

 BioProtect : Packed with Antioxidants, Carotenoids , Nutrients & Enzymes to protect, hydrate & deflame
Active Ingredients: 
Vitamin A, Vitamin C Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium Coenzyme Q10, L-Glutathione.

Vitamin A, the major precursor of vitamin A, is a powerful lipid-soluble antioxidant able to quench singlet oxygen and to inhibit free radical chain reactions. Beta carotene is aided by other carotenoids to block free radicals and to boost the immune system.

Vitamin E, Emulsified. Vitamin E functions as the body’s major lipid-soluble antioxidant. It quenches free radicals and singlet oxygen, and it protects membrane lipids against free radical attack, and it reduces LDL oxidation in vitro. Vitamin E blocks the formation of nitrosamines and also enhances the immune system, including activation of phagocytic activity of white cells in elderly patients.
Vitamin C. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a versatile water soluble antioxidant found in blood and tissues. Elevated serum vitamin C is associated with enhanced immune function, reduced heavy metal toxicity and increased liver clearance of toxins. Recent studies indicate that the RDA for vitamin C should be increased to at least 200 mg for healthy young adults. 

Zinc & Selenium,  Both nutrients help support your immune system by stimulating the body's natural defense mechanisms and supporting normal inflammatory processes.

Coenzyme-Q10, Emulsified. This lipid soluble nutrient is believed to protect mitochondrial membrane lipids from oxidation.

Glutathione (GSH). GSH quenches free radicals and helps regulate the detoxification mechanism of cells.
The soup is extremely simple to make, suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those on a gluten-free or dairy-free diet.
