Help Your Child with These Natural Remedies
We know how much you love your children and want to keep them healthy! Most parents would rather treat their children naturally, however, do not exactly know how to. Sick days are definitely a part of growing up, but can cause a lot of stress on your child and have you worrying the whole time feeling like there is nothing you can do. Common children’s health issues can be coughs, colds, diaper/skin rashes, ear infections, cold sores, stomach aches, tooth aches, asthma and diarrhea. The truth is that germs, bacteria and viruses will always be around you and your family. Unfortunately, your child is still building their immune system so these health issues will be more common. Instead of or in addition to taking them to the doctor, here are some natural remedies that may help soothe your child:
Bug Bites- Try mixing a few drops of water with baking soda. This mixture creates a gentle paste that can relieve the itching caused by the bites. This remedy is quick and inexpensive.
Aches and Pains- Chiropractic care uses the same amount of pressure as you would to test the ripeness of a tomato! Gentle adjustments can help your child’s spine, allowing your baby to heal and live a wonderful life.
Burns and Bites- Try cucumbers! Just like you would use slices of cucumbers on your eyes to reduce under eye bags, you can use cucumber pieces to sooth irritations like sunburns and insect bites. Just make sure to always have a few pieces in your fridge!
Sore Throat- Before running to the cough syrup, try a combination of honey and lemon juice. This combo can help your little one because lemon will help dry up any congestion you may have while the honey coats and soothes the throat.
Colic- Chiropractic adjustments can help restore proper nervous function, allow the muscles to relax, and assist in the healing process. Combine chiropractic care with chamomile tea in order to help your little one’s intestinal muscles so they can relax and feel better.
Overall Healthy Diet and Development- When it comes to your child’s development, they will suffer from falls, bumps, bruises and more that can end up taking a toll on their fragile little bodies. Chiropractic care helps with their nervous system and immune function. Your Doctor of Chiropractic can also help give diet suggestions depending on the ailment your child may be suffering from.
