Know your body. Whatever you eat, drink, and put on your body, you need to know what works and what doesn’t. You need to learn what works for your child’s body.
Are you that mom that gives your child Benadryl with the sign of a little sniffle? Or maybe if their throat feels a little scratchy, you get out the throat spray.
I am not fussing at you, if that works fine, however, can you consider another way?
Have you considered your child may not be coming down with ‘something’ he/she may have a food allergy?
According to Food Allergy & Education (FARE), researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies.
Sometimes it can take hours or days before their body shows a reaction to something. So what should you do?
- The body needs 24 hr support.
- What are you doing, or taking to give your child’s body what it needs?
- Do you know what it needs?
Have you tried using herbal remedies?
Herbals, essential oils, smoothies, lemon water, and other natural methods can help keep your child’s body above the wellness line. We are going to dive into a lot of these in upcoming posts.
Education is key but it means nothing until you apply and share it with others.
We keep a lot of thyme around the house to help support our immune system. You can make a thyme tea or ‘cough syrup’ and just keep the excess in the frig.
We’ve used this recipe for a few years and even some of my extended family uses it as their ‘go to’.
