and Welcome to Herbs for Kids and Family!
I have been using all-natural
remedies with my children for their whole lives. Often times, people
ask me what products I use, so I have compiled my information here.
I have been very lucky, in that my parents are herbalist and Naturopathic
Physicians, but I am not offering this information to diagnose or
cure - I simply wanted to share the results of my research with
my own family. Links to actual products are provided where available
- and many of my favorite products come from Nature's
Sunshine Products and organic grocers and natural health pharmacies,
Foods and Pharmaca.
Since I have a child
on the autism spectrum, we try to use a GFCF diet for her. In our
GFCF Kids section
you will find information, GFCF recipes, and product recommendations
to help you and your family implement a GFCF diet. Remember, GFCF
is not just for autistic kids. Many people, young and old, can benefit
from a wheat and dairy free diet.
In addition, we have put together some health related Easy Social
Stories that might work well with this information - specifically
Talk About Being Sick and Let's
Go To The Doctor.
