A Tale of Immune System Support as told by an Elementary School Teacher


As an elementary school teacher in a public setting, I get asked all the time what do I do to support my immune system?  I mean…seriously…with so many kids missing school for one illness or another, how do I keep myself healthy?

In writing this post, during my lunch, in between correcting papers and helping students, these hands have touched a million things – doorknobs, pencils, Kleenex, garbage, desks, keyboards, milk cartons, etc.  It takes diligence to keep one’s immune system healthy in this setting!  Thankfully, I have a class of students who do not like to miss school, so we talk regularly about keeping ourselves healthy!  In a nutshell, we make sure to:

  • wash our hands
  • respect others’ personal space
  • sneeze or cough into our arm
  • get outside every day
  • smile more
  • choose healthy snacks and foods

I am thankful to have a class of students who understand the value of keeping themselves healthy!  As a class, we have some great discussions about personal health, fitness, and overall wellness!  We practice patience and kindness with each other, and strive to be happy and helpful.

Personally, for myself, I make sure to incorporate the Young Living products into my life each and every day!  Here is a sample of some of the products that I use daily to support a healthy immune system:

  • Thieves Vitality every day in a capsule, and in my tea, along with some local honey
  • Thieves on my scarf around my neck, on my clothes, and breathing it in my palms
  • Peppermint Oil on my feet and legs – keeps them energetic!
  • Cleaning my space with Thieves cleaner every day
  • Lemon Vitality oil in my tea and toothbrush, Lemon oil on my skin
  • The Thieves hand sanitizer is never far from reach
  • Inner Defense supplement every day
  • Longevity capsules every day

In addition, I keep my digestive system in a balanced state by being mindful of what I am eating.  I eat in as a relaxed state as possible.  The Digest and Cleanse capsules are an important part of my daily routine, as is the Essentialzymes4.  I have the Ningxia Red packets stashed in a drawer, and the Ningxia Nitro is a lifesaver when I need a quick burst of energy.

It is possible to keep ourselves healthy in all situations!  Armed with our great oils and supplements, a good attitude, and a positive environment, it can be done.  I hope you find this information helpful.

P.S.  Support your local public school educators.  They are doing more with less every single day.

~Be well.
