A Bunch Of Sickos

This is a picture of my kitchen counter. Well, actually, it's all the homeopathic remedies I have on my counter because my husband and daughter are sick. You think I'd remember by now, but noooo, every year I forget to invest in Kleenex before the cold/flu season starts.

We avoid taking traditional medications due to the numerous side effects and generally just being disappointed with the results. We have found great success with homeopathic and herbal remedies. Plus, the tablets are yummy.

There was the time last year when Charlotte got her first ear infection and I took her to the pediatrician. He wrote a script for antibiotics. Ummmm, I think I'll try the mullein garlic eardrops and some G.S.E. first. Guess what? In two days time, she was back to normal. The doc said, "Wow! That antibiotic really worked! Usually, I have to see kids back in 2-3 weeks and there's still residual infection, but her ears look perfect." I had to break the news about my remedies and he said, "Well, it certainly worked!"

My dear H has to avoid cold medications due to his high blood pressure tendencies. (Who wants their heart to race from medication anyway?) So, he takes kali bichromicum, elderberry cough syrup and Yogi tea which work even better.

If you're at all interested in a more natural approach to healing, then I highly recommend this book by Andrew Lockie.Hope you and yours are feeling well this Christmas season!

I used to have a wonderful family doctor who always took the natural and homeopathic approach. It was so nice because I was nursing and/or pregnant all the time. She was my favorite doctor. And then she went into a different practice and our dumb military insurance wouldn't allow me to continue seeing her.

I just got started on herbal stuff...the kids were sick all winter last year. I am not going to repeat that! The hard thing is I don't have a lot on hand and no stores around us carry this is all mail order. I'll have to check out the book...thanks for the tip!
