sick baby...help from doctor avoiding mothers - Page 3

Update

WOW!! What a differance ... baby's breathing is completely clear and I only heard one little tiny cough this morning. This is amazing!

MOre than that, I don't know if it was the echinachea or the EmergenC, but he looks so vibrant, there's a sparkle in his eye and he looks so healthy! I am so happy to see him looking so good, every time I look at him I have to kiss him.

Thank you mamas! Last time he had these same symptoms, I took him top the doctor and they prescribed albutoral in a neb. It took him almost a week to start getting better. This time he was almost 100% better within 48 hours!

For anyone reading with the same situation, here's what I did.

hot steamy shower
eucalyptus rub
eucalyptus EO in a humidifier
echinachea tea with EmergenC dispersed throughout the day.

I had planned to do the onion poultice for his chest congestion, but he got better before I did it.

Should I continue with the echinachea and emergenC or let it go now that he's better?

just saw this thread and I'm glad your little guy is doing better Vitamin C is amazing - when the body is fighting off an infection, it needs way more than the RDA amount. I encourage you to wade through the thread on sodium ascorbate that used to be here but now got moved to health and healing - it's HUGE but a great resource and will help you understand what's going on.

re: still using emergenC, etc. If it were me, I'd still give your guy a bit more vit C than usual for a few days to make sure he completely recovers. Others may have other opinons.

Hello
just saw your post
I'm a big believer in using herbs/homeopathy and all holistic therapies on the entire family.
When there is flu/colds/coughing= echin/goldenseal mix-every hour till it subsides
loosen up mucous= you already know this- eucal essential oils a few drops in a pot of boiling water,let the steam surround the room inhale deeply. Can make a mix to rub on sinus,chest area (few drops mixed in a carrier oil base like hempoil 2 oz)
reflexology can be used for instant results,pressing down on the indicator triggers with various aromatheraphy oils. Example; the toes are related to the head,sinus,ears,eyes,mouth. the ball of the foot is the lung area...........etc.
Vit. C hourly when you have colds/flu/coughs
Garlic oil=ear inf (drop in the ear)
Lavender essential oil to help calm and sleep (place a few drops on the pillow) Works even with adults.

Stay away from allopathic prescription meds .

Super! I just saw this thread. Sorry I did not post sooner but seems everything is going great now.

MMR = diabestes type I - that is so sad.

I am so sorry for your dc. There are ways to help him also with his diabetes. Some moms here have experience with that.

Here is what I would have posted if I would have seen your thread sooner.

Hope you find some help in dealing with the diabetes.

You may want to start a new thread to see if someone has information for you.

Here is one site I've kept in my favorite for some reason. I did not read it before posting it just now.
