Am I the only one who thinks that giving a toddler an herbal tincture, in a alcohol base, is weird? ...or not good?
I saw a naturopath today for my son's eczema. She wanted to start him on some unda drops. I don't really feel like homeopathy is very science based, and for now I don't really buy it....so I told her that I didn't want to. She then said we could do some herbal tincture instead and I said ok....It's in an alcohol base and I feel like giving my kid a little dose of alcohol everyday for 3 months just seems wrong.
Is it just me?
As a side note, we're also doing blood tests to check for allergies, and she gave me a couple topical creams for the itching. The tincture is supposed to be used in the meantime,....to help his liver?
I just don't understand how an herbal extract actually helps the liver detox better. I mean, how do we actually know that? I just feel like it's kinda quacky, and the alcohol part freaks me out, but I want to do what's best for my son.
Plus, I already paid for it and opened it.
But, I'm about 100% sure my uber skeptic husband is not going to want me to give this to our son.
