Monsoons bring on more than just flooding.

With the increased moisture and stagnant water flooding from the recent storms, Phoenix is seeing a rise in populations of mosquitoes.  Mosquitoes may have a serious impact on the health, comfort, and economic welfare of people. Some species transmit diseases to man and animals, and inflammation and irritation from bites can become infected if not taken care of.  Here are some helpful tips in keeping you and your family protected this rainy season:

- Avon Skin So
Soft©  (can act as a barrier for the bugs)
- Burt's Bees All Natural Outdoor Insect Repellent 
- Essential oils
  • Tea tree oil
  • Peppermint oil
  • Eucalyptus
  • Lemon oil  
Apply a few drops to a carrier oil such as Coconut oil or Grape seed oil and dab on your skin or clothing.

Treating bites
- All Purpose Salve (can be purchased at the office for soothing irritated bites)
- Oatmeal baths at home

- Calamine lotion

There has been a lot of exposure regarding the Enterovirus in the news lately and we wanted to touch a little on how you can keep your family safe during this high exposure time. Enterovirus-D68 (EV-D68) can cause mild to severe respiratory illness. Since EV-D68 causes respiratory illness, the virus can be found in an infected person’s respiratory secretions, such as saliva, nasal mucus, or sputum. EV-D68 likely spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or touches contaminated surfaces.
Mild symptoms may include:
  • Fever
  •  runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Cough
  • body and muscle aches.
Cases are being reported mostly from the Midwest, however, it is believed that there may be cases in Arizona currently or it may be heading to Arizona soon.  Many of the reported cases have had difficulty breathing, and some had wheezing. Often these children had asthma or a history of wheezing. Other demographics that this virus can affect more severely include young children, elderly, those with an already compromised immune system. 
If you or your child are experiencing any of these symptoms, please go to the Emergency Department.
You can help protect yourself from respiratory illnesses by following these steps:
  •   Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after changing diapers.
  •  Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.

Chocolate Chia Pudding:
Serves 4
For chia:
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds (soaked in at least 1 cup water, for at least an hour or two)
This can be done the night before you make the actual pudding, if you prefer. 
Then the expanded chia seed mixture can be added to the rest of the mix, below.
For pudding mix:
  • 2 cups coconut milk (or rice, almond, hazelnut, whatever suits you)
  • 2 medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1/8 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds for garnish
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder (add to taste, if you like your pudding strong, try 6 tbsp)
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
Combine chia seeds and nut milk in a bowl.
Whisk together and refrigerate for two hours.
Whisk once more when you take the mixture out of the fridge.
In a food processor, combine the dates, flaxseed meal, cacao, honey, and cinnamon. Pour in the chia/ nut milk mixture and blend together.
You can add some sliced almonds or fresh fruit on top if you like or eat it as is!
