By Dr. Trevor Cates
Summer is coming to an end and that means back-to-school time. Along with the backpacks and school supplies, equip your family with natural remedies that will keep your children healthy throughout the school year. Each year, my patients’ parents share with me their top back to school concerns: immune support, head lice, sleep, and which foods are the best for their child. Here are some tips to help your children enjoy a healthy and productive school year.
  1. Sleep. The recommended amount of sleep within a 24-hour period (including naptime) is 12 – 14 hours for toddlers, 11 – 13 hours for pre-schoolers, and 10 – 11 hours for school-aged kids. Most American children are not getting the recommended amount of sleep, which, in turn, affects their daytime behavior and school performance.

Hyland's: Moms 1st: Prioritizing Your Health
By Dr. Trevor Cates
As moms we spend much of our time taking care of our families, making sure the kids are well fed, dressed, and off to school with their homework complete. We are constant shepherds, cheerleaders and support for our families, but sometimes forget to make time for ourselves. As the flight attendants remind us each time we fly "in case of an emergency landing, first put on your mask before assisting your child." Similarly in our family life we must put ourselves first sometimes. It is essential that you set aside the time to meet your needs so you can be a healthy and happy mom.

Hyland's Teething Tablets FB Page: Top 10 Tips for Relieving Stress
By Dr. Trevor Cates
In response to a stressful or dangerous situation, our endocrine system releases a cascade of hormones. This leads to an increase in heart rate and alertness, and a rise in blood sugar and fatty acids to supply energy for muscles to react quickly and intensively. The fight or flight response gives the body the necessary power to respond to a physically and emotionally demanding situation.

The immediate reaction to a stress, or the alarm phase, is usually short-lived, but, eventually, continued stress can lead to diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, and ongoing stress can weaken the heart, blood vessels, adrenal glands and immune system. In other words, it is important to manage stress!

AANP: Get Your Child to Sleep Naturally
By Dr. Trevor Cates
Ask any parent and they can tell you that “sleeping like a baby,” is a contradiction in terms. Most parents have become too familiar with children’s sleep issues, from restless sleep to night terrors.

The recommended amount of sleep within a 24-hour period is 14 – 15 hours for infants; 12 – 14 hours for toddlers; 11 – 13 hours for pre-schoolers and 10 – 11 hours for school-aged kids. Most American children are not obtaining the recommended amount of sleep, which, in turn, is affecting their daytime behavior including school performance.

By Dr. Trevor Cates

Breast milk contains the perfect nutrients for a growing baby, such as antibodies to help protect the baby from infections, enzymes to aid digestion, fatty acids to support brain development, and easily assimilated nutrients to promote healthy development.

Homeopathic Laboratories: Constitutional Prescribing for Healthy Women
By Dr. Trevor Cates
From puberty to menopause, women experience a variety of hormone-related conditions throughout their lifetime. Thankfully, numerous homeopathic remedies can provide relief for the spectrum of ailments such as PMS, menstrual pain and irregularities, hot flashes, and morning sickness. There is a big difference, however, between treating symptoms and treating the woman who has the symptoms.

Sepia and Lachesis, for example, are two of the most popular homeopathic remedies for menopausal symptoms and do, in fact, help many menopausal women, yet not every woman will benefit from these remedies.
