Natural Remedies For Your Children

We know just how precious your children are and that they are the center of your world. So, we would like to share some simple, natural remedies for your child’s needs to keep them healthy and happy!

Set your child up for success by avoiding a diet filled with processed foods.

Set your child up for success by avoiding a diet filled with processed foods.

Bug Bites: You can make an inexpensive paste to quickly relieve the itching fast and naturally. Simply mix a few drops of water with baking soda to create a paste and apply to the bug bite.

Mild Swelling: Place a slice of cucumber, cooled from the refrigerator on the swollen area to soothe slight swelling and irritations such as insect bites and sunburns.

Sore Throat: Honey and lemon juice can help soothe a sore throat, its delicious and some even say that it works better than medicated cough syrup! Lemon helps to dry up congestion, while honey creates a natural, soothing relief. For children over 12 months of age, combine a tablespoon of lemon and honey, then serve it in small teaspoon size doses.

Colic: Chamomile tea helps to calm intestinal muscles and relax the child. Steep some chamomile herbal tea for 4-5 minutes and once it has cooled down, serve it to your child, not giving them more than 4 ounces (120ml) a day. A chiropractic adjustment may also help by restoring proper nervous system control also allowing muscles to relax and the body to heal itself.

Healthy Development: The birthing process, growing pains, falls, bumps and bruises can really take a toll on your child’s health and development. With the most gentle care, we ensure that your child’s nervous system is up and running, just like your child.

Healthy Diet: There are so many food allergies, sensitivity to dairy and gluten that grocery shopping is not as easy as it once was. Get in to the habit of checking the labels on your foods and pay attention to your child’s behavior after eating dairy, gluten, nuts, etc. to see if they may have sensitivity. Avoid a diet filled with processed foods packed with sugars, salts and preservatives, to help set your child up for success!

Aches and Pains: Children have spines too, so chiropractic care can do wonders for them! Did you know that adjusting a baby uses the same gentle pressure you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato? Just enough and barely noticeable, but yet it allows your child to heal and live a happy life.

 

We would love nothing more than to help your entire family grow healthy and strong. Remember that we are always here to help, answer questions and guide you in your family’s journey towards optimal health.
