Our childrens health and well-being is our number one priority in life.
If you are looking for information for a specific problem right now, choose from the common ailments.
Can I tell you anything that could help you improve your childrens health? YOU BET!..After thirty years my case files were full of baby, toddler, mid-kid and teenage health issues, successfully treated! And I am including much of that information for you FREE.
Lets start with some of my "Jude's Reliable" remedies for everyday ailments. And then my 'hidden treasures', these strengthen your children's immunity against bugs and viruses they can easily pick up at school and elsewhere.
BUT - we never take any chances with our childrens health, do we! Cover all bases - that's my motto! If a child needs medical attention for any illness, make sure all first-aid is given immediately to reduce any danger to their well-being. Take them to the doctor or the hospital if you need to.
"AND ALSO.." - THE AA RULE!
What we CAN DO with natural medicines for childrens health is to have several viable options of "AND ALSO..do this!" I call this my AA rule. ie.. you do this AT THE SAME TIME!
A quick example..your child has a bump or a fall, a shock or an accident. You may need to take them to the doctor or hospital. AND AT THE SAME TIME you give them a dose of ARNICA - the bruising is lessened, the pain is reduced and the shock or fright is quickly gone. Like Magic! Its a well known fact with natural therapists all around the world. ARNICA RULES!
You see.. if you have just a few alternative remedies to hand in the kitchen you can lessen the impact of most illnesses whilst boosting your child's immune system.
In each age section you will find the short list of specific illness 'reliable' remedies and suppliers contact details, along with general dosage instructions.
BUT here, let's start with a few basic remedies to have to hand.. your 'wonder kit'.. Mostly filled with homeopathics for childrens health, but also some great creams and tinctures, a couple of fabulous essences for kids 'moods' and tissue salts to build up bones and tissue.
ACONITE: Early stages of inflammation such as colds, coughs, fever, earache, vomiting, diarrhoea and travel sickness. It comes on suddenly - in the night, after a cold wind or a fright. The child wants cold drinks.
ARNICA: Accidents and injuries with bruising and shock. Promotes rapid healing after surgery or dental treatment, during and after childbirth. Child feels better lying down and worse from the slightest touch.
BELL: Sore throat, fever, earache, colds, coughs, flu. Face is hot and red, eyes big. Child wants warmth, to watch TV on the couch and have cold drinks like lemonade.
HYPER: Natures anaesthetic! for injuries to places that really HURT..Fingers, toes, puncture wounds, splinters, bites and stings, after dental treatment. Hyper promotes healing and helps prevent infection in wounds, scratches and cuts. Never be without it!
PULS: Eye symptoms like styes, sticky eyelids, colds with thick green or yellow discharge, very weepy and clingy. " don't leave me alone!".. waaa waaaa. ! Tummy aches from eating rich food. Not thirsty.
BURNS OINTMENT - with Urtica Urens and Calendula.. OH SO FAST.. soothes and numbs.
CALENDULA CREAM- replaced my need for savlon!
Hypericum and Calendula Tincture.. an effective antiseptic. A few drops and I washed wounds with confidence.
