It has been about a month since our children in Clearwater started attending school again for the year and already we’ve heard of lots of children with colds, asthma, runny noses and other symptoms. Every year when children go back to school, there is a bit of an uptick in illnesses among children. At Dawn Potter Acupuncture, we take a natural and preventive approach to health and believe that the best treatment option is being prepared! Today, we’re discussing back-to-school illnesses and how you can improve your child’s immune system to avoid these issues. If you find that your child is feeling under the weather, feel free to reach out. We are always happy to help.

Why Do Children Get Sick When Returning to School?

When children return to school they are being exposed to a lot of new things. Other children and whatever germs they may be carrying around for the week, chemicals that have been used in the school, dust that hasn’t been cleaned up all summer, etc. It can be quite a lot for their developing immune systems to handle, often resulting in many children feeling under the weather.
