Keep your Kids healthy – naturally (Part I)

Every child will soon or later have a cold or tummy ache. Most of these episodes are not all that serious but they can make you and your child feel miserable enough to look for help. In Germany many pediatricians are interested in avoiding pharmaceutical drugs, such as antibiotics, when a young patient visits. In the US it is more difficult to find doctors who are knowledgeable about naturopathic treatments.

The most common health concerns in young children are usually respiratory infections and digestive troubles. Children’s immune systems are being formed in the first months of life, and so kids are more susceptible to infections. Also, their little bodies are learning to assimilate foods that are new to them. That’s not always easy and often leads to tummy aches or digestive troubles.

Doula & Midwife Steffi Heintzeler

Recently, I was involved in a very special birth. Lily and John (names changed) were expecting their first child and had taken my childbirth class. So it was great to know them well before they called me very early one morning. Lily told me that she was bleeding a little and having contractions. Her husband was very nervous, which made me think that he needed me even more than Lily.
