To cure a sick baby:
Pau D'arco (fights infections) Free, thanks Pamela
Colostrum Supplement (boosts immune system) 50.00 (ouch, luckily that's for like 5 lbs and it last forever)
Fenugreek and Thyme(clears sinuses) 6.00, Olive Branch
Benedryl (Dries sinuses, allows infection to clear. Helps little man sleep) Priceless.
Why all the fuss just to avoid antibiotics? Because antibiotics are now being linked with hyperactivity in children. (And also, I get a weird sense of accomplishment when I can say that my son has never been on antibiotics. It makes me feel like a supermom)
(excerpt from http://www.unhinderedliving.com/ADHDcauses.html. Want to read the whole article?)
"The #3 trigger is antibiotic use. There is a correlation between repeated childhood ear infections and ADD/ADHD. Why? Because antibiotics given for medicinal reasons as well as the antibiotics injected into the animals used for meat in this country both set up conditions in the intestines for the overgrowth of trigger #4...... (candida)"
Okay, that's enough for now, I should stop neglecting my children and general household chores.
