You are so tired of staying up all night because one of the kids has a fever.
To-do lists are long enough, but everything seems to go so much slower when someone has a cold or flu
You are tired of finding kleenex all over your clothes in the drier
For the past 4 years, I’ve either been pregnant, nursing or both and it felt like every over the counter medication came with it’s own set of warnings. Sometimes, I wouldn't take anything because I honestly didn't know what was safe anymore. My second child got sick more often than my first ever did as a baby mainly because his older brother kept bringing everything home from daycare.
I really had to find other safe ways to support myself and my little baby and my toddler bodies. Through my education as a holistic nutritionist and experience I’ve learned a trick or two on how to tackle a cold or flu.
Did you know that kids can get anywhere from 5 to 7 colds a year? For toddlers under 2 years old, that number can go up to 10 colds a year. Yikes! If the school year is 8 months long, that means for about 1 to 2 weeks each month, you’ll be spending caring for your sick child. Most adults catch about 2 to 4 colds a year and possibly more if the kids keep bringing home those bugs!
And what about you? The truth is, that when you are living a go-go life, are sleep-deprived, and under-nourished, you’re bound to get a cold or flu more often. And when you do, it’s one thing to call in sick at work, but you can’t call in sick to your family. There’s still mouths to feed, toes to clean, and bedtime stories to tell. You simply don’t have time to “be sick”.
Wouldn't it be nice if we can minimize the number of times a cold or flu comes over for a visit? And how great would it be if we knew what to do to bounce back quickly?
When your baby or young child catch a cold it, all your well planned calendar come to a screeching halt. It takes up all of your time and energy to care for them. We worry about how they are feeling, if we are doing the best we can for them, and wonder about what they need next. The truth is that you’ll do whatever it takes to get them healthy again.
Over the counter medications can be helpful by masking the symptoms but most have questionable ingredients and in general we are not always sure if they are even safe to take. There’s a whole other world of natural remedies, but it’s overwhelming and you’re not sure what other remedies are safe to use and when.
When you know how the immune system works you are 100000% more confident on what natural remedies to use to help the body heal [okay I’m exaggerating, but you get my point].
And when you support the immune system to have less frequent colds or flus, amazing things will happen to your family’s health.
During this 4 part course, you’ll learn how to look after your family’s most precious asset, your health!
I created this course from the perspective of someone who couldn’t always take OTCs and married nutrition and age old practices to help alleviate symptoms and boost your immune system naturally.
Sniffles, Sneezes and Stuffy Noses is for busy moms who recognize that getting a cold is part of the “yearly” life, and need a powerful routine to follow to get their kids or themselves feeling better in no time.
At the heart of Sniffles, Sneezes and Stuffy Noses program, is the desire to empower you with the confidence to use natural remedies to strengthen your immune system and use over the counter medication only when needed.
What you may not realize is that some of those symptoms are signs that our immune system is working. And by constantly suppressing them, you are actually not allowing our immune system to do it’s job … and that means your body is working harder for longer to get over that cold!
And that’s why I teach you first how the immune system works so that you know exactly what to do to support it naturally and where you can strategically use over-the counter medication to feel better. Win-Win!
You don’t need to balance the competing advice of nutritionists and doctors.
You don’t have to navigate the time-consuming trial and error goes along with trying new remedies and wondering if they are working.
And you don’t have to ask for help in a random mommy facebook group.
“When our four year old was diagnosed with ADHD in June of 2016, we felt lost. His symptoms were mild to moderate and we weren't given much guidance or advice other than to be consistent with discipline.
The months went on with little improvement and we began to look for additional strategies and methods to help our family cope.
I reached out to Ana for help in putting together a diet plan specific for ADHD. Our son is also a picky eater and we have struggled with getting him to eat healthy for some time.
Ana was eager to help and got to know our unique challenges by having us complete a questionnaire and speaking with me over the phone at a time that worked with my schedule. Ana answered all of my questions and provided me with recipes and food types that were good and bad for our son's symptoms.
Her suggestions on how to approach meal times and his picky eating were easy to implement and have worked wonderfully for our family. Our son went from not eating any vegetables at all to a boy who is willing to try almost anything. We discovered foods he loves that we never would have tried without Ana's suggestions.
Ana also helped us to understand supplements and how they could be helpful. I am happy to say we have been able to follow almost all of Ana's recommendations and have seen a huge improvement in our son.
Ana is a pleasure to work with. She understands each child and situation is unique and goes above and beyond to find what will work best for each family.
She puts people at ease by taking pressure off and encouraging to start slowly. She was always there to celebrate our wins and I truly feel she was as happy as we were with each success.
I highly recommend working with Ana and look forward to continuing to learn from her.
Ana Maria is my enciclopédia, my google and my bible for anything baby and holistic health related questions I have. I can always trust that any information provided by her has been thoroughly researched and I feel safe to apply her advices to my precious baby. The love and thoughtfulness that goes into anything she does is rare to find. I love her positive outlook and sweet way of always finding a solution that works for my family. Thank you Ana Maria for all the love and support you provide me and my baby!
Working with Ana-Maria has taught me to cook yummy meals with healthy food and how to listen to my body. I also like that I have less cravings now. Even after the detox I continue to make and eat the recipes. :o)
As I was going through a detox program with Ana, I enjoyed how simple the smoothies were and the recipe book gave great options. I could not believe how much energy I had being on this program!! I had continuous energy throughout the day and my weight loss was incredible.
Ana doesn't just give you a nutrition plan and send you off to fend for yourself after. This is a person that provides on-going support and advice, ready to help whenever it is most needed. I appreciate that she can emphasize with my own food struggles with a young child, having two kids of her own and passing on the knowledge from her personal experience to help her clients.
