Summer is the time to sit back and enjoy indoor activities or go on long vacations to some exotic destination.
During summers excessive sweating and exposure to pollution and dust can aggravate acne problem.
Apply a paste of one tea spoon fenugreek powder and a pinch of turmeric powder mixed with water to treat acne in summer. Coriander juice has a cooling effect on skin. Apply a solution of corn flour and water all over the body and leave it on for 10 minutes before your bath.Sandalwood powder has a cooling and soothing effect on the skin. Nobody wants to go to a well-child checkup and come home with a diagnosis that could mean a hospital stay.
My experience with pneumonia is pretty slim: memories of my brother being in the hospital with it for a few days when he was six and hearing of it being the final (losing) battle for elderly relatives far too often. The boy had been quite sick three and four days prior, feverish, lethargic, and just wanting to nurse and sleep all day. His appetite stunk for the next two days but his attitude was great, but still when I took him in that Tuesday morning before Thanksgiving, I never expected him to have a serious respiratory infection. Pneumonia is defined as an inflammation of the lungs caused by an infection, the root of which might be viral, bacterial, or even fungal. For adults, two huge signs of pneumonia beyond basic flu-like symptoms that could mean anything include chest pain that worsens while inhaling and coughing up mucus (sputum). In our guy, poor appetite was a sign that he was still sick, but for your toddler, that might just mean they’re a toddler. The final symptom that surprised us enough to send us to the Emergency Room in the middle of the night almost exactly three months later is not even lung related.
This February, after we kicked pneumonia in November without resorting to antibiotics, John got another cold from big sister.
We kept a really close eye on his coughing and pulled out all the stops as far as natural means of fighting infection that we had at our disposal. Each time he’d wake up coughing at night, I cringed, waiting for the mucus to come flying out.
My husband couldn’t calm him down back to sleep and brought him to me for the magic nursies. Over the next 30 minutes, we tried everything we could think of to calm him down, all the while worrying and watching him cry, lay down, get up, not allow people to hold him, fight nursing, and writhe in pain. He would lay his head down on the floor like he was so tired he couldn’t stand up anymore, but his lower half was still ooching and scooching his body across the floor like a vacuum cleaner.
It looked like he was in severe abdominal distress, and as the minutes ticked by, the worry mounted like a knotted hose. I rubbed his belly, we put him in the bath with a warm washcloth to try to encourage a bowel movement, and finally, he threw up a few times.
What would you do if the writhing and crying didn’t stop or slow down at all after vomiting? The doctor on call (in my tiny hometown, because of course this sort of thing only happens after a 5-hour drive away from home) said it could very well be an abdominal obstruction and to go to the ER right away. He was sleeping (and still breathing) by the time we arrived (Murphy’s Law of Emergency Rooms, I hear), so a lot of the stress began to subside. It turns out, after a much debated chest X-ray that will definitely remain the worst five minutes of my year, that constipation is a side effect of pneumonia in many little ones. We came home with a suppository that we never used and a prescription for antibiotics that we never filled. We had Dimetapp, which I was a real champ about taking (picture lots of crying in despair and parental counting to 10a€¦), only if we absolutely could not sleep. I was very proud of my mom when it came out decades later that people really shouldn’t use medicine in the category of Dimetapp very often, and especially on children younger than six. So when my mom told me in February that she had a hunch about how to help John relieve his chest congestion, I was all ears. She had read about how kids with cystic fibrosis have awful mucus in the lungs, and parents do a special sort of steam treatment and back clapping to help them loosen it up and cough it out.
A quick Google search yielded exactly that recommendation for kids with pneumonia or any chest congestion. Using a cupped hand, clap the child on the back a€“ nice and hard, but without hurting them of course a€“ until they cough. Optional: Add a few drops of essential oils that are good for the lungs and breathing, or are anti-bacterial in nature, like eucalyptus, peppermint, cinnamon, camphor, or lemon. We called it a steam party, and my older son who was coughing at the time as well got to come join us.
I also clapped my toddler on the chest, particularly because we knew exactly where the congestion had settled, so I focused on that spot a lot.


Now that our little guy has fought off pneumonia twice, with two scripts for antibiotics that we can add to our virtual scrapbook of unfilled or unused prescriptions, I feel like I know a little about how to treat it naturally.
I put hot water in the cold steam vaporizer along with some combo of camphor, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon or peppermint a€“ all night long. I’ve also recently learned not to use homeopathics and EOs at the same time, for example, which is something desperate parents need to know when presented with a huge list of remedies like this post. 8 drops lavender and 8 cloves garlic: food process, strain, and rub on chest every waking hour until healed. And many gave moral support for the idea that sometimes, modern medicine is necessary and welcome, and to not beat myself up over giving him antibiotics but just follow with lots of probiotics. Ironically, John had been taking Vaccishield, a pretty strong probiotic designed to prepare a child’s system for vaccinations.
His next bout with illness was around when he should have had his 18-month well-child checkup.
Overall I’m so thankful that we were able to treat pneumonia naturally without the use of antibiotics or any other prescription drug. I can even be grateful for the experience in a way, because every time a child gets sick, I become more versed in natural medicine and home doctoring, and I’m happy to be able to share the story here to inspire others to be able to treat pneumonia at home, too. Worm infestation is a very common cause of human ailment and most of the times the worms live in the intestinal tracts. One can get infected with tapeworm through drinking water and taking food which is contaminated with tapeworm eggs and larvae. Interestingly, one may get rid off the parasite with very common natural treatments that are easily available. Though there are various remedies available for treatment of tapeworms, it is advised that prevention is always better than cure.
Fever blisters can be painful. Common symptoms of fever blisters include pain around the mouth, burning sensation on the lips, sore throat, swollen glands and so on.
You can apply yogurt on the affected area to cure fever blisters. Consumption of yogurt can also provide relief from the problem of fever blisters.
You can create a paste by mixing baking soda powder in water. Applying this paste on the affected area can cure fever blisters within a short span of time.
You can apply coconut oil on the affected area with the help of a cotton ball to reduce inflammation resulting from fever blisters. You can also consume virgin coconut oil (2 teaspoons) on a daily basis to treat the problem of fever blisters. You can apply tea tree oil on the affected area 2 to 3 times in a day to reduce the pain resulting from fever blisters. You can soak a cotton swab in salt water and apply it on the affected area to treat fever blisters. A sore throat is often accompanied by a headache, stomach ache, the common cold and swollen glands in the neck.Sore throats, while very common, can be painful and uncomfortable. People with acne prone skin need to be extra careful about protecting their skin from harsh sun rays. Cleanse your skin with a solution of lemon juice, plain yogurt and honey. It could present itself as a simple cold for the next person, even though you were lucky enough to have it settle in your lungs and irritate them. It’s contagious as pneumonia, first of all, and antibiotics would be effective and highly recommended to avoid more serious consequences.
If your toddler seems to have a chest infection and this happens at night, it’s something to pay attention to, particularly if it happens more than once.
I still don’t quite understand why, but I hope someone can learn from our experience.
Her thinking, my paraphrase: If this thickens mucus so my kids can sleep without coughing, wouldn’t it also thicken mucus throughout the system, like the ears?
I never had an ear infection as a kid, but my mom watched a number of friends’ kids a€“ who were frequent Dimetapp users a€“ have terrible ear problems as they grew.
I learned a TON at this very helpful post and you should read it, too, especially about eucalyptus, cinnamon and peppermint for children.
He had a week of it under his belt when he got sick, and obviously we didn’t get any vaccinations because his health was not good. John pulled through the first time and kicked it fairly easily a€“ within 24-48 hours of that awful hospital visit a€“ the second time, when we used the steam party treatment.
Of the various worms infesting the human intestine, tapeworm is quite common.It is a long, segmented parasitic worm which primarily lives in the human intestines. Tapeworms can grow to more than 20 feet in length and 50 feet long worms have also been detected. The advantage of home remedies and natural treatments is that there is very little or no chance of getting any side effects. It is an age old treatment to add crushed pumpkin  seeds to any fruit juice and drink it at one go.


However, it should be taken in the form of tea as concentrated oil of wormseed can actually harm the intestine.
You can apply fresh aloe vera gel on the affected area multiple times in a day to treat fever blisters. You can also consume aloe vera juice to cure fever blisters. Applying this paste on the affected area can help in reducing the burning sensation resulting from fever blisters. This paste should be applied 2 to 3 times in a day to obtain the desired results. Application of this paste on the affected area can help in dealing with the problem of fever blisters. Direct application of this mixture on the affected area can help in the treatment of fever blisters. You can apply ice cubes wrapped in a small cotton towel on the affected area to cure fever blisters. Instead of making an appointment with a doctor, you can try some easy, natural remedies that will help alleviate the pain and, depending on the cause, possibly cure the problem. In summer your skin can get afflicted with various skin problems like acne, sun tan and sun burn, heat rashes and prickly heat. They cause itching and burning sensation which can be quite bothersome skin problem in summer.To take care of prickly heat in summer you should scrub your body with a soft scrubber while bathing to deep cleanse the pores. Apply a paste of sandalwood powder and rose water to treat prickly heat in summer. Wear loose cotton clothes to keep your body dry and well aired. It helps to expel all the impurities from the body and keeps your skin fresh and clean in summer. It never seemed to be anything out of the ordinary in the midst of cold and flu season in November, and when his fever broke in the middle of the night, we thought he was on his way up. Pneumonia happens to be the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, in case you wanted to be freaked out today. He was generally fine all day, but at night, he would have coughing fits that would wake him. Take this with a grain of salt, just as you would a conversation with a friend, and do your own research and consult with a doctor before treating something as serious as pneumonia at home. The types of worms that are normally found in humans are Taenia saginata (beef tapeworm), Taenia solium (pork tapeworm), Diphyllobothrium latum (fish tapeworm) and Hymenolepsis nana (dwarf tapeworm). The only downside is that for one complete treatment a large amount of seeds may be needed and it has not been found to be very effective on dwarf tapeworms. Though it has been used for long in the tropics, studies are yet to ascertain the effectiveness and safety of its use. Apart from that regular use of garlic in food has also been found to be effective in killing these parasites. So eat a lot of fresh pineapple and pineapple juice to get rid of tapeworms and also prevent infection.
You can apply honey on the affected area to treat various symptoms associated with fever blisters. It was more that there was a bunch of gas in his intestines that caused the pain, but the doc said that’s really common for young ones with pneumonia. However, the fruit is acidic and it may not be suitable for certain people who suffer from various stomach related problems. This natural cleanser will help to keep your skin soft, moist and clean without making it oily.Use rose water to tone the skin as it helps to tighten pores and prevents dust particles from setting deep in to the skin. But if such infestation is left untreated, the infection can get serious with formation of cyst in lungs and liver and even in the central nervous system. Repetition of the treatment several times may be needed for severe infestations and removal of the complete worm. Mix one teaspoon of salt and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in one cup of warm water. This cuts phlegm and reduces inflammation, giving you instant relief.Mix one-half teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water.
Add a few drops of garlic oil to one-fourth cup of water and gargle with it once daily.Also try to eat garlic in raw and cooked form. If the herb is not available, you can also buy slippery elm in capsule form from any drug store.
