Keeping Kids Healthy

The children have only been in school for 2-3 weeks but are currently suffering from colds and coughs. Are there any plants that can help maintain their health and fight all the new insects they encounter in the classroom?


Changes in seasons, exposure to new children, and new germs in the classroom environment make it difficult to maintain the health of your little one. Preschool and kindergarten children managed to take it all. Some young adults are more likely to develop the disease if they have pre-existing conditions, including asthma and allergies.


I recommend taking echinacea before a flight to help boost immunity, and I think the same might benefit children before or perhaps when the school year starts. Echinacea is formulated with Astragalus and Reishi to complement its defense mechanism. It can be taken for a few weeks or after the first symptoms of a cold until the symptoms subside. For which lotion is best, I recommend drinking tea, chewable tablets, and glycerin instead of alcohol tinctures.


For the common cold, I like drinking Mormon tea (Ephedra viridis) which is grown all over Utah and does not support the “fast” ephedrine found in the Chinese plant, Ephedra vulgaris. Peppermint and ginger can slightly increase secretions to act as decongestants. Marshmallow root tea helps soothe an itchy throat.
For nasal congestion, garlic is necessary: ​​in the same way, the cause of odor on our skin and breath, it is also removed from the lungs, removes congestion. Osha, licorice, pleurisy root, and lead will help with more severe bronchial problems, but a certified practitioner should recommend and adjust the dosage accordingly. Children from 2 to 7 years of age should take 25{a0f2b28a62bdda74394c9fbf8484af0a0a8d319a1daf7bae2e0744718a970a6e} of the adult dose; Between 7 and 12, 50{a0f2b28a62bdda74394c9fbf8484af0a0a8d319a1daf7bae2e0744718a970a6e}. If the condition worsens or causes concern, see a health care provider.


The best way to stay healthy is to live healthy. We can do a lot for children by giving them a complete diet and ensuring they get good rest and exercise which is essential for health. Digesting processed food and fat overloads the body and increases additional physical stress. Sugar, food coloring, and additives such as MSG can cause significant energy changes and can interfere with learning abilities. Even a mild food allergy to milk or wheat can be dangerous for a child’s health.


If your son or daughter is among the many people with asthma and allergies, be careful to avoid the triggers. An ENT expert explained that he has seen the number of times sinus and ear infections increase with increasing pollution in our valleys. A new study published on National Public Radio shows that children who are exposed to diesel fumes on buses are more likely to catch the flu. I recommend using the correct grass on the first fracture symbol when the temperature reversal begins. Depending on the conditions, I might recommend yerba mansa, licorice, goldenseal, dandelion leaf, and lobelia.


With busy family schedules, social challenges at the playground, and scary events like September 11, we have to do everything we can to help relieve our children’s stress. I really like using lemon balm to relax and soothe the baby, when he can’t sleep because of his busy life.
Our children are being bombed from all directions. Usually the best defense is to overcome and treat minor ailments before you get older. Herbs are good for that.
