A note about Flu in Children - Prevention and Natural Remedies
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
One great and sneaky way to get some fruit into them is to try and make it seem like as much of a treat as possible - throwing a few different fruits and berries into the blender and making into a puree is a good one. Pour it into a small container and pop it in the freezer for a few minutes until its cool and almost slushy and they wont even know its a healthy snack!
And when all else fails, there are dozens of multi-vitamins made for children that are so tasty that they wont mind taking them.
Along with a balanced diet rich in vitamins and nutrients, making sure they wash their hands regularly is a must for preventing the flu in children. Buying a natural soap or hand sanitizer made for kids - like those with a cartoon character on the bottle - is a great way to get them excited about washing their hands, and it wont be long before theyre in the habit of doing so without being nagged.
Now that you have an idea of how to prevent the flu in children, we can move on to a couple of natural remedies to help them deal with the symptoms of the flu should they get sick.
Homeopathic options are not only a wonderful and effective way to treat the flu in children naturally, but these remedies are also becoming easier to find. Most drugstores now carry homeopathic remedies for children that are clearly labeled to indicate what they treat.
The remedies your grandmother told you about are also great. Think of how much better you felt after drinking that warm cup of the lemon and honey drink she used to make, or how much better you were able to sleep after she rubbed some eucalyptus or mint oil on your chest to help with your stuffy nose. These natural remedies have worked for centuries and are kid-safe, so that you can make your children feel better just as you did.
