Summertime fun can be accompanied by health problems including: sunburn, eye strain, overheating, dehydration, allergies, poison ivy, bug bites, stings, pricks, scrapes, cuts, burns, animal bites and even broken bones.

Have first aid available nearby for any of these summer problems, including natural antiseptics and dressings for cuts, scrapes, burns and bites.

Essential oils from herbs and flowers provide simple natural protections and remedies for some bothersome health issues. Most commercial sunscreen products are not healthy to put on the skin.

Allergic reactions ramp up for many people in late summer. Some of this can be minimized with a house cleaning of the body to reduce yeast and fungal overgrowth.

Poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac contain an irritating oil called urushiol. The itchy, somewhat painful rash that can develop by touching this toxic oil is not fun. Simple natural protections and remedies are available for dealing with these bothersome plants.

Super foods like Northern Edge organic milled flax seed, Delicious Greens with 8000 ORAC units of antioxidants per serving, flower pollen extract, organic spirulina, and herbs, are very important to be added to the diet to strengthen and maintain health.
