Today is the day that I wish that I was an at-home mom. My son has a constant cough and finding the solution has been a nightmare. I’m going back to the basics to clean the house of all allergens.
That includes things like, removing rugs, tapestries, anything under stored in tight spaces. But this also includes removing wheat, dairy and sweets from his diet. In addition we will remove bananas, cucumbers, and zucchini (I have read that they have a protein that can cause the same reaction as the allergens listed above).
Poor little love, he will get better soon. I am also going to start with these three herbs. I will brew them in the morning and give them to him in the afternoon. He has had herbs since he stopped breastfeeding and started to take a bottle. There was no milk only herbs. So we are back to the basics, but this time using a cup! In addition to these herbs we will increase his Vitamin C intake and we will of course be using the saline rinse three times a day!
Ederberry or Elderflowers (Sambucus) are rich in flavenoids with potent anti-inflammatory properties. The natural astringents dry up mucus in the respiratory passages. It can be given as a tea, tincture or syrup — 1-2 times per day.
