How my Teenage Daughter Recovered Naturally

I had to bring my daughter home from school on Thursday, sick. She had to skip Cheerleading practice. The next day she had to skip school. This is what I did to help her body heal:

---> I did not take her to the doctor's office nor the E.R

----> I did not give her any over the counter cold meds or fever reducers

 

She rested from the time we got back from school on Thursday, all through Friday and Saturday morning (today). She only had homemade raw milk-shakes with strawberries and a banana (raw milk is really filled with nutrients!) and then half a turkey sandwich with avocado on Friday night, since she felt a bit hungry. Lots of water in her refillable water bottleNo sugary treats.

Throughout the day and night Thursday (from 3 p.m on) until Friday evening I had the diffuser running in her room with Eucalyptus oil. I applied R.C on her chest and back a couple times. These oils helped support her health naturally and helped me create a healthy home environment in which she could rest. Saturday morning I started diffusing it again. 

 

She was tired and weak and was running a fever on Friday... Started at 98.5 and got up to 101 by the night, but I did not give her fever reducers. We explained to her that a fever was just our body's way of showing us that it was working hard to kill the virus. She felt chills and she had a sore throat.

 

This morning she had a slight cough (not deep in her chest, though), but the fever was gone! She stayed in bed all day today, but she was not as tired and weak anymore, as she had been on Thursday and Friday. She simply watched movies and FaceTimed with a friend. As I write this, she does not cough much.  

 

I will always be thankful for the wisdom God gives me to help my kids naturally. No wasted time or money at doctor's offices or E.Rs, waiting with other sick people to be seen and then prescribed antibiotics or sent home to take some kind of cold medicine. Plus, as an added bonus, my daughter's immune system was enhanced with the supplements I gave her - a double dose of NingXia Red and Life 9 probiotic  - the high-quality essential oils I applied on her and diffused around her, and the raw milk and fresh fruit.
