Help with Common Childhood Ailments

We are still on the subject of children's health, so I thought I would go over some common aliments of children.

Vomiting & Diarrhea  One's heart goes out to a child who is throwing up, but there are some simple steps to take to help ease this time and bring healing.  
  • Give no food for 24 hours since the last vomiting. Then start with very simple, easy to digest foods, such as bananas, applesauce, raw goat milk, plain oatmeal, rice, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, soda crackers. Give no meat or protein for at least three days.
  • Slippery Elm helps much, plus it is nutritious. Mix it with water into a paste and take as applesauce, or you can mix it in applesauce.
  • Give either LDM-100 or Golden Seal to help stop the vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Raw unfiltered honey is said to help vomiting. Give a little a while after the vomiting.
  • Peppermint essential oil helps smooth the stomach.
  • When there has been diarrhea, it is best to take some probiotics to replenish the gut flora.  
  • Make sure to keep the child hydrated with water and herbal tea, such as red raspberry leaf, peppermint, chamomile.
Fever  Although fever is nature's way for the body to fight infection, if it gets too high it is concerning. Here are a few pointers for not only reducing the fever, but healing the body.  
  • Drink plenty of water; add a little lemon juice to it to alkalize it.
  • Take Herbs4You Fever Formula. It is gentle enough for even babies, and very effective.
  • If the fever is very high and you want to reduce it, put the child in a warm bath and sponge them off, but do not let them get chilly.
Ear Infections  Ear infections are usually bacterial, and when it is a middle ear infection, to get at it effectively, the whole body needs to be treated. So take a natural antibiotic, such as  LDM-100 or Special Force. You may also put some drops of the following into the ear:
  • LDM-100
  • Tea Tree oil
  • Garlic oil  
For general health and to prevent getting sick, we have some great help. Juice Plus+ is one the best helps for strengthening the immune system and many have seen a reduction in the frequency and severity of illness. LDM-100 is another high quality product that helps fight infection and can be taken long term. Special Force as well helps fight off infection and boosts the immune system. Let's keep our children healthy and vibrant! Have a great week.

Healthy Tidbit: Garlic Oil

Crush several cloves of garlic. Place in a small non-plastic bowl and add enough olive oil in it to cover the garlic pieces. Then place this in a pan with water in it. Set the pan on the stove and heat the water. (This will warm the oil without burning it. )

After the water starts to boil reduce the heat to simmer and leave on the stove for 30 minutes. You can then just turn the heat off and let the garlic and oil mix continue to sit in the hot water for another 30 minutes or longer. If you are not in a hurry, you can let it sit over-night to bring our more properties. 

The last thing then is to strain the garlic from the oil. This can be done with a clean handkerchief or some cotton cloth. Pour into amber glass bottle and use as needed. It is always best to strain the oil when it is a little warm.
