We are still on the subject of children’s health, so I thought I would go over some common aliments of children and how to deal with them.

Vomiting & Diarrhea

One’s heart goes out to a child who is throwing up, but there are some simple steps to take to help ease this time and bring healing.

  • Give no food for 24 hours since the last vomiting. Then start with very simple, easy to digest foods, such as bananas, applesauce, raw goat milk, plain oatmeal, rice, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, soda crackers. Give no meat or protein for at least three days.
  • Slippery Elm helps much, plus it is nutritious. Mix it with water into a paste and take as applesauce, or you can mix it in applesauce.
  • Give either LDM-100 or Golden Seal to help stop the vomiting and diarrhea.

  • Raw unfiltered honey is said to help vomiting. Give a little awhile after the vomiting.
  • Peppermint essential oil helps smooth the stomach.

  • When there has been diarrhea, it is best to take some probiotics to replenish the gut flora.
  • Make sure to keep the child hydrated with water and herbal tea, such as red raspberry leaf, peppermint, chamomile.

    Fever

    Although fever is nature’s way for the body to fight infection, if it gets too high it is cause for concern. Here are a few pointers for not only reducing the fever, but healing the body.

    • Drink plenty of water; add a little lemon juice to it to alkalize it.
    • Take Herbs4You Fever Formula. It is gentle enough for even babies, and very effective.

    • If the fever is very high and you want to reduce it, put the child in a warm bath and sponge them off, but do not let them get chilly.

    Ear Infections

    Ear infections are usually bacterial, and when it is a middle ear infection, to get at it effectively, the whole body needs to be treated. So take a natural antibiotic, such as LDM-100 or Special Force. You may also put some drops of the following into the ear:
