The Difference Between a Weed and a Flower Is The Reference Book You're Reading
I really don't like pumping my kids up with some drug to make them feel better. Laugh all you want, especially if you knew me in college, but it's true. If my kids get sick, I refuse to pick up a bottle of ibuprofen or cough syrup or baby-anything drug. Now before you pick up the phone and call CPS, hear me out.
Homeopathy and Toxic Exposure
As I have taken steps to live a more natural lifestyle, I have found that industrial waste is not limited to the Hollywood-sized vat. Toxins can be found everywhere (just what your favorite paranoiac wants to hear). Pesticides, vaccines, and even terrorist tactics involve toxins that — well, hey, they won’t make your face melt off, but they do pose a myriad of threats to our health.
Question: Is homeopathy vegan or vegetarian-friendly?
Susy Parker Goins replies: Yes and no. Many homeopathic remedies come from plants and minerals, and those would be non-animal sources. But many remedies do come from animals, including Apis mellifica (honey bee), Lachesis (bushmaster snake venom and Thyroidium (thyroid gland).
Ear Infections and Homeopathy
When my first boy had an ear infection when he was a baby, I was able to figure it out by paying close attention to him. No, he didn't really tug on his ear; he more or less flapped it with his hand, a lot like a hound dog scratching his ear. But Joey developed a sudden breast preference and was using the definitive "pain" cry at night.
Immune-Boosting Supplements for Winter Health
Holiday cheer isn’t the only thing that abounds this winter: Cold weather ushers in the sniffles, sneezes and coughs of cold and flu season. Check with your health care provider to see if any of these supplements can help your family avoid illness or feel better quickly in the event you do get sick.
Homeopathy for Tummyaches
There’s not much that makes you feel worse all over than any sort of gastric upset. After thoroughly checking into your symptoms, look to homeopathy to help out. Remember to pay close attention to the symptoms. Even seemingly irrelevant minutiae like which side the pain started on or what makes you feel better or worse can make a big difference in which remedy will be most effective.
Avoiding Bladder Infections
Most of us are not used to thinking about our body's maintenance beyond eating three square meals a day, getting proper exercise and drinking bottled water. But as we age, bladder health becomes more important, especially for women. So much can happen, between childbirth and infections, that a woman needs to know how to take care of herself.
My Kid Won’t Sit Down: Homeopathy and ADD/ADHD
My child won’t sit still! Or pay attention. Or keep his hands out of his pants. Or … So what’s a parent to do? Consider homeopathy. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, homeopathy can bring about some amazing changes – gentle, permanent changes in a child diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.
Safe, Non-Toxic Treatments for Head Lice
If you are like most parents, you want a safe and effective treatment for head lice. Most treatments are toxic and are not recommended for toddlers. Here are three different treatments from parents.
Natural Approaches to Asthma
For some children, asthma can be quite a simple issue to resolve; for others, it can be life threatening. The same toxins that cause eczema in one child or sinus congestion in another can cause the breathing tubes to constrict in a child so genetically predisposed. Skin and sinus issues are uncomfortable, but a fight for breath can be terrifying.
Treating Acne with Homeopathy
You could do like the father in My Big Fat Greek Wedding and spray something on it, but there’s that annoying ammonia smell that squelches all serious emotions.
