Baby and Children Conditions

 

In one sense, children are just like adults, in that they suffer from a wide range of illnesses.

However, there are a few very important and very critical differences.

A child’s body is still growing, in that it has never demonstrated its full physical, emotional and mental structures before.

Any gardener will tell you, it is much easier to damage a seedling than a fully grown plant.

The utmost care must be taken when trying to help a child with their health.

A child is often not in a position to even know or describe the condition that they are suffering from.

Even if they were in a position to describe the pain or symptoms they were experiencing, they are not legally allowed to make a decision on the best course of treatment as they are classed as minors.

This means that a responsible adult needs to make the decision for the child.

But as a responsible adult, what factors do you need to take into account when deciding on the best treatment for your child?

I can only give you my personal opinion.

Always, if you are in any doubt about the dangers to the child’s life, rush it to the Doctor or hospital immediately. For example, if it cannot breathe properly or is screaming in pain for no apparent reason. If it turns out to be indigestion, you can always apologise, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

When using a plant extracts on a baby or child, always carry out a test on its arm or leg. Simply massage a few drops of the remedy onto the skin then leave for two hours to check if there is any reaction. If the skin swells up in any way, then do not use it. (The same applies to an adult).

In twenty years I have never known a baby react to the herbal remedies that we provide, but it is always better to be on the safe side.

Wherever possible, do not feed the child processed food as it has a lot of toxic chemicals in it. Just doing that may improve your baby or child’s health.

Whenever possible, avoid drugs as your child’s body may well be harmed by them.

Even natural remedies, if used incorrectly, these too can be too powerful.

Having said that, if you are going to treat your child or baby, I would opt for the solution that will do least damage, and the solution that will help the child’s body to heal itself.

Mother Nature created your child, often it just needs a helping hand from Mother Nature to get your child’s health back on track.
