Children’s Medicine Cabinet
Here are some ideas to help start your natural medicine cabinet. These are either liquid – in glycerine or powder you can add to juice. VS-C for viruses and liver/immune problems OREGON GRAPE for bacterial infections ULTIMATE ECHINACEA for immune, lymphatic, headache, achy, fevers and chills SILVER SHEILD – for immune and cold or flu VITAMIN C ASCORBATES – for prevention, sore throat and cough There are also homeopathics for TEETHING and COLDS for children from Nature’s Sunshine (NSP) as well Any time any of my children are sick I always use WILD OREGANO essential oil from NSP. You must mix this one in olive oil or vitamin E oil, or jojoba, whatever you have. Never use full strength on skin. Use a dime size of oil in your hand with 3-4 drops of the Oregano oil and rub on his feet – then put on socks. HE WILL SMELL LIKE A PIZZA FACTORY – WE MADE UP A PIZZA SONG THAT WE SING WHEN WE PUT IT ON AND THE KIDS NOW LOVE IT – ALL OF THEM WANT IT WHEN 1 IS SICK – JUST FOR THE SONG!
With the herbs listed in the 1st section, (minus the vitamin C) I mix them all together in a cup and pull it up into a dropper and give 2 to 3 droppers full every hour with first sign of symptoms and the Oregano at bedtime. The vitamin C of course – only 2-3 times total in low doses to prevent diarrhea. I used all of these growing up and all of my kids use them all the time! With an infant, give 10 drops at time instead of 2-3 droppers full. For stubborn cases that these don’t remedy – go get the Nutri-Biotic GSE –LIQUID and put 7-10 drops in juice. This gets rid of all sore throats for everyone! Also Echinacea mixed with Golden seal – for strep.
If your child has allergies – or thick – yellow mucus – or an earache – get the liquid ALJ – that will thin the mucus and help him to expectorate. Also a humidifier and Tei Fu Oil mixed with carrier oil – applied to chest and back – covered well so he doesn’t get it in his eyes! The liquid CBG extract or Nutri-Biotic ear drops in the ears is good. He can also do that CBG extract orally too. It is known as the Ear Clear formula. Suggestion – when he has an ear infection – you would need to warm this under hot water from the faucet then drop it in the ear – using this cold will cause more pain and spasms. These are all good to have on hand when you need them – get them now and keep in your medicine cabinet with this sheet. You can order all of these from Nature’s Sunshine. When you get the VS-C – specify liquid – Tei fu too. If you don’t have a Nature’s Sunshine account it is easy to set one up. Call 1.800.456.1422 and tell them to set you up an instant application. They will ask for a sponsor ID. The number they need is 250100-2. Then just give them the information they request to set up a wholesale account for you. The account will last for a year and is free to set up with a $40 order.
Take care, and call with any questions! Jill Clarey, ND 336.456.4743
CBS Health News today tweets an article about preventing dementia with learning music. www.cbc.ca/news/health/learning-music-early-builds-up-brain-s-reserves-against-dementia. It reminds me of reading about a brain issue that a client recently came in with.
It all started this past summer. I was at the pool, trying to give blood during the blood drive. I take the pre-requisite hemoglobin test to determine eligibility to give and FAIL. My hemoglobin was LOW! I had been on a daily salad binge and did liquid chlorophyll with regularity in my water. How could I have low hemoglobin?
Why Invest in Your Own Self (Care)
Why not just start with stress. We all have it, (most all of us). When not managed it can cause many symptoms!
Ninety-five percent of our neurotransmitters are in our gut. So does this explain when we are constipated why we are so grumpy – I’d say “YES”. We only have one-two percent located in our central nervous system, (our brain and spinal column).
One of the things I do is teach people how to eat. When you go grocery shopping the best place to start is the labels on the sides of all the boxes and bags. The ingredients list has always been there. I look for a few things on every label.
Each year in the United States, 1.3 million people over 45 years of age experience bone fractures associated with osteoporosis. For women, the most rapid rate of bone loss occurs in the first five years after menopause, beginning around age 45 when body hormone supplies undergo a dramatic change. The rate of bone loss then drops to about 1 per cent per year.
Okay, I hear men – have for 15 years – starting with my father when my mother was going through menopause, talk about the woman in their life going through menopause and how hard it is on them. But, I have rarely heard women talk about the husband’s version of menopause, called andropause.
