Oh No, a Fever!

IMG_20160609_210837.jpgIt can be a freighting time when your child is sick.  It is important to know when it’s time to treat at home and what constitutes an emergency.  If action is taken early on many emergency action may be prevented. A quick reference guide to fever shows when to be alarmed.  Otherwise, many home remedies and herbs may be just what is needed to boost the little ones through the other side and speed up recovery.

Here are my favorite go to herbs for child cold, flu, fever and infection.  The idea is to be prepared rather than panicked at the time of need.  Do your research and have on hand many of these for such an occassion.  Infections are common and can be squashed before they take over and those pesky antibiotics are recommended.

Grapefruit seed extract is a safe and healthy alternative to oral or topical antibiotics.  Oregano and thyme oil can also prove effective topically. (A very strong oral antibiotic but just as deadly to your good bacteria that make up your immune system.  -use with caution under supervision of a naturalpath or specialist only)

I am a mother of four children and 120 pounds on a heavy day. I grew up eating the average American diet and seemed pretty healthy until I found myself exhausted and struggling with kidney stones, sleepless nights and unmanageable skin issues. I stumbled across the answers that would soon unlock some keys to my healing and recovery. Eliminating added sugars, eating whole non GMO food, fermenting and gardening, homeschooling and my continued learning. Come join my journey and continue your own. Please note: I do not claim to have all the answeres and base my FACTS on my own experiences and conclusions. Please take time to pray for healing and direction, research on your own, ask questions, seek out an expert and start low and slow. We are all created unique and live different lifestyles and nothing is the same for everyone. Be blessed on your journey. I owe it all to the creator of all things, glory be to God!
