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)

The Sound of Baby Crying

Today I was contacted by a mom who was concerned for her 2 month old baby boy and needed formula because her son wasn’t able to breastfeed.

However, she was heading to the ER for her son, who was now having difficulty breathing.  I had a thought to ask her if he was recently immunized, and he had received a few last week.

Since then, he had been up at night screaming, fevered and unable to suckle and eat well.

He was having a vaccine reaction.  I quickly got in contact with a few natural pathic Dr in my area and a team of freedom fighters from Health Freedom Idaho, who quickly volunteered their support and services.

Here. The recommendations that they laid out for this breastfeeding mama and baby to detox from the side effects and mercury toxins

One must be careful when breastfeeding as to not detox and spread toxins to baby. The chlorella is a binding kelp that prevents the detoxing mercury from going into breast milk.

For $44.95 I was able to purchase the following items and take them to her to help begin the process.

From Michael Karl Karlfeldt with the Karlfeldt Center in Idaho in daily recommendations.

“I would suggest that you get vitamin C (just plain ascorbic acid) and take 1000 mg three times a day. I would also get some bentonite clay and make a mud pack of it and put it over the baby’s liver and spine. Also, drink a quart of horsetail tea. You prepare it by putting 4 tablespoons of the herb and 1 quart of water and simmer it for 10 minutes. Then you strain it and you can sweeten it with a little bit of honey for taste. I would also suggest that you take 500 mg of magnesium maltate (MagBright would be preferred) and 25 mg of zinc. These suggestions are listed according to importance if you’re concerned with the cost. You should be able to find all of these things over at World of Nutrition in Nampa.”

Rosie Gallegos-Main, with Main Health Solitions recommended Bioray for kids to treat the gut issues that directly correlate to the effects of immunizations and has offered to treat baby at no charge.

Now, thanks to a quick response from caring professionals and the community, instead of crying, baby is sleeping soundly.

Please pray and thoughtfully consider the risks before vaccinating. Just because it comes from a Dr, does not mean its safe

Mercury is toxic at any level, let’s keep it away from our kids

If you or someone you know has had affects from vaccines please report it asap.

Prayers and support are welcome for this mama and baby.  God bless.

Don’t feed the worms.

capture_2016-12-01-10-29-09

After taking on what seems to be the impossible, detoxing myself from sugar, I was faced with the echoing dilemma, “How do I take sugar from my kids?” and “Will life ever be the same?”  

The answers are quite complex but not unreachable.

It came to me after talking about it with my four year old.

NOTE: My kids love playing in the compost pile and seeing who can find the biggest worms.

I was talking to the kids about parasites, the germs and invaders of the body, and about how sugars feed them and out of my mouth came the question, 

“Do you want to feed your worms?”

This pretty much took care of the problem.  Of course he didn’t want them in his tummy.

I haven’t had much of a struggle with the kids since.  Praise God for simple things.  Kids are so amazing and if we take the time to teach them truth at a level they understand, they grasp it quickly and completely.

I wish it was that easy for the teenager and husband to grasp.  But the echo of this question works for the young ones for now.

. . .

Funny thing is, when my four year old now wants a sucker from the bank line he turns to mommy in public and says loud and serious,

“I WANNA FEED MY WORMS!”
