7 Tips for Healthy College Bound Students
How to Send Love and Keep Your College Student Healthy
This year my son is going out of state to college and like any mother, I want him to be healthy and feel loved. Being a Certified Wholistic Health Coach, I have access to so many products to make him feel comfortable and healthy inhis new home. I did a series on “Tips for Healthy College Bound Students” on my Facebook Page, Debi’s Treasure’s,
I touched on just a few topics, seven in all. Believe me I could go on and on. It came to me as I was shopping for his college experience and with pandemic issues I had other ideas as well. I wanted him to have a healthy space, be healthy, be less stressed, be able to focused, be happy, thrive and have comfort from home. Through his Freshman year, I will probably send more care packages so he will feel loved.

Tip #2 for Healthy College Bound Students – Healthy Room
The air we breathe is full of scents, dust particles, pollen, mold spores, and who knows what else. Wouldn’t be great to have something to help eliminate odors, reduces air borne allergen and freshen the air? That is what the Revitalizer does. My son has allergies and we use the Revitalizer with Enviroair Hypoallergenic Formula at home. He is able to breath better after the process.
As I say in the video, you add the concentrate to the water that you put in the bowl part of the Revitalizer. Turn it on for an hour and half and leave the room. It sends out particles that trap these pollutants. These pollutants it fall back in the device or the floor. You simply sweep up the rest and throw out the water.

People simply don’t drink enough water. I wrote a blog article on the importance of hydration. You need to drink half you body weight to help clean out toxins out of you body and so many other reasons. High school and college students are not the best of keeping hydrated. My son is going to Arizona so I keep telling his how important it is. He prefers flavored water to drink, otherwise he won’t drink it. Luckily I have so many healthy hydration options for him.
Rebound Fx is our favorite and thank goodness for that. What a lot people don’t realize is that you sweat out all your when exercise by sweating. Rebound Fx has over 100 nutrients to replenish what you sweat out. It comes in canisters, stick packs and cans.

All of these products have vitamins, antioxidants and SOD which is Superoxide dismutase. SOD helps your body combat oxidative stress. It has more benefits that you can check on the link provided.
