More and more people are seeking alternative or "complimentary medicine "for themselves and their children. I am a big fan of the 'natural' approach. Multivitamins are great for supplementing a balanced nutritious diet, coupled with adequate sleep and exercise, as well as probiotics and fish oils are recommended by doctors for overall health.
Fish oils provide a powerful boost to our immune system and can help us fight off nasty colds and infections, as well as being good for depression heart disease, ADHD and Asthma. When buying fish oils make sure the product is mercury free by looking for the terms "pharmaceutical grade" or "distilled." This means the product does to contain metals, PCBs, dioxins, or other impurities.
Are healthy bacteria, such as my personal favourite acidophilus and lactobacillus, which is found in yoghurt. A good balance of healthy bacteria in the intestines can easily be altered by stress or an inadequate diet and the use of antibiotics. By taking healthy bacteria we can re-address that balance. Healthy bacteria can prevent or lessen severe gastrointestinal viruses (particularly those that cause diarrhoea) eczema, food allergies and asthma; there is even evidence that may help prevent tooth decay.
Are great for bringing up mucus. Use thyme liquorice, elm or peppermint. You can make these teas into ice pops for kids, so they can easily digest them. A few drops of Lavender and Sweet Orange on a pillow can help children or adults with Insomnia.
