Lately, a large part of my practice has been advising parents on the best natural remedies and the best homeopathic remedies for kids.
These are natural alternatives to over the counter and prescription medications that are incredibly effective, safe, and build better immunity in the future.
You can also check out my article on the best supplements for kids.
We need to change the way we interact with sickness. We need to treat it physically and mentally/emotionally. We need to support the natural healing systems in our body and remove what may be blocking them from being able to work.
My approach to sickness and immunity:
Prevention- grounding, sun, supplements, daily meditation/calming nervous system / looking at mindsets/environmental things that could be blocking the healing system to do what it is supposed to do. Daily self-audits/assessments.
Imagine a bucket that is filling drop by drop, eventually, the becket is going to spill over. The goal with prevention is to do things every day that are clearing out drops in your bucket so it won’t spillover.
Symptoms – Symptoms are your friends, not the enemy. Your goal should NOT be to STOP symptoms. Your goal should be to support the body in getting the bacteria/virus/whatever is causing the symptoms to move through. When you take something to stop the symptom (which you can) it will actually weaken your immune system in the long run.
