University Care Packages For Your Student Moving Away From Home.

It s just around the corner your first year University student will be on their way.  The first year is very stressful for the students especially if they are leaving home.  Not only do they need to navigate around a new facility but also a new city, adapting to living dorm life, and having to do everything on their own.  Most students  underestimate  the level of responsibility that comes with moving away.  The anticipation and excitement can mask that reality. Until it sets in….they come to their first exams, they start getting sick, feeling stressed, having digestive issues and massive skin breakouts.  Trust me this isn’t my first rodeo! What happens next is YOU get the call.  The one that everything is a bit overwhelming, that they are sick and homesick (sometimes) that they can t sleep….and it goes on.  If you are a mom like me you begin to feel helpless  you get those little tugs at your heart. Your momma instinct goes into high gear and and you wish you were there to take care of them. As a Chinese Medical Practitioner I know that when there is high stress there will be some form of illness.  In Chinese Medicine we treat disease before it arises, by boosting the immune system to help alleviate the toxic overload created by stress.  I ve created  a University Health Care/Skincare package for you to give to your child before they leave.  Don t forget to check the Bundle package discounts at the end of this newsletter!

1) Vitamin C with Flavonoids

Key antioxidant to protect the body from free radicals.

Supports the immune system

Helps with the absorption of iron.

Flavonoids help the Vitamin C be absorbed and utilized in the body

Vitamin C helps reduce both the physical and psychological effects of stress on people.

2)Vitamin B Complex

B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism. Vitamin B complex helps prevent infections and helps support or promote immunity

B-complex vitamins are often used to reduce fatigue and boost mood.

Some studies suggest that B-complex vitamins can lift your spirits and improve your cognitive performance.

May Reduce Symptoms of Anxiety or Depression

One study found that supplementing patients with a vitamin containing B12, B6 and folic acid led to a more enhanced and sustained antidepressant response over one year, compared to a placebo Note that low blood levels of certain B vitamins, including B12, B6 and folate, have been linked to an increased risk of depression, which is why it’s important to rule out nutrient deficiencies if you are experiencing symptoms of depression


B-complex supplements may relieve stress, boost cognitive performance and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, even in people without B vitamin deficiencies.


This paediatric formula (adults use it too) can be used both preventively or while you have the symptoms.  Its goal is to quickly eliminate the pathogens that cause infection.  Take at first signs of  sore throat and sniffles .  Its great for inflammatory symptoms such as

This is an adaptogen formula to be taken during times of increased stress levels.  I usually recommend this to my female patients who have deadlines to meet, who have kids that have several activities in June, and September, and December.
