A natural health approach for raising children

I was raised on natural health remedies as a child. My mom used to put garlic drops in our ears when we had ear infections. Then I went to college and studied nursing. After spending the last decade in the conventional world, my eyes have beheld sickness beyond imagine.

Then when my son was 7 months old he started having seizures upon receiving the flu vaccine. After seeing his pediatrician, an ER physician, and a specialist, I still did not have an answer as to what was happening to him or why. It was then I realized that my son was born healthy, but conventional medicine made him sick.

I have taken my knowledge of how the human body works and began the journey to study natural medicine as a way to heal my family from common family ailments.

When it comes to raising healthy children, we follow a few basic principles:

We eat organic, non-GMO unprocessed food.

We get a good night’s sleep.

We keep our days simple and our stress levels low.

We look to homeopathy, essential oils, and herbs to pick ourselves up when we are down.

We seek the aid of modern medicine as a last resort without fear, while still supporting our bodies with what God placed on this beautiful earth.

I hope our journey will inspire moms to become their children’s healers.
