   In the news again is the drug abuse problem with OxyContin. Over 190,000 people have died from this one medication alone. I have never filled a prescription for pain medication even though it has been prescribed after dental treatment and surgeries.

Herbal Formulas for Children

My kids were fairly young when we totally switched over to using Dr. Christopher’s herbal formulas.  I wish that we had known sooner what we know now about taking care of ourselves naturally.  It is very empowering to be able to handle health situations at the time when things are happening. I hate when people say I think my kids are getting sick and I mention things they can do, but they don’t follow through. This doesn’t need to happen. If we give them the herbs as soon as we think they are getting sick, then most of the time it will stop it or at worst shorten it.

    Dr. Christopher has a great Kid-e-Line of extracts for children which are appropriate to give from newborn to elderly.  

Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Calc    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Calc is a wonderful natural calcium formula designed to meet children’s specific growing needs. As explained in the book, "Biological Transmutations", the silica in horsetail grass can be converted into calcium in the human body, and the other herbs work in close conjunction with this master calcium herb. We need calcium to build and maintain nerve sheath, vein and artery walls, bone, teeth, etc. This combination is helpful for cramps, ("Charlie horses"), successful pregnancies, and building as well as maintaining healthy bones, teeth, hair, skin and nails for children and adults.

Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Col    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Col is a mother's favorite formula for her new born baby. This formula is time tested and a blessing for infants. A great combination of Catnip and Fennel for colic, teething pain, flatulence, spasms, etc. This is one I give as a gift when I hear a baby has colic.  Parents are always amazed at how quickly it works to soothe little tummies.

Kid-e-Dry    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Dry is specifically for controlling or overcoming bed-wetting and to strengthen the entire urethral canal, kidneys, bladder, etc. you won't have to beg your child to take this great-tasting extra each day. 

Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Mem    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Mem helps to promote proper brain function. We all want what's best for our children. Childhood is an important time to learn & grow. We need to give our little ones the proper nutrients so that their brains work optimally. In conjunction with a proper diet, plenty of water, and loving relationships. 
Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Mins    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Mins are natural vitamins for children, Kid-e-Mins is the ultimate whole-food formula, perfectly balanced with vitamins and minerals the way mother nature intended. Vitamins that come straight from nature are the most precious gift you can give a child. 100% natural to nourish growing bodies. Vitamins a parent can feel good about giving their children.

Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Mune    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Mune was designed to enhance the body’s ability to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. Many herbalists use Echinacea for its ability to build resistance to infections of the respiratory and digestive tracts and strengthen the body’s resistance against many common ailments such as bronchitis, the common cold, sore throats, canker sores, cold sores, etc. Give at the first sign of illness to stop problems quickly before they develop.

Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Reg    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Reg is a synergistic herbal blend was designed to strengthen and gently cleanse the lower bowel. It is powerful enough for effectiveness and gentle enough for safety. It tastes great and is made with only the finest ingredients. 

Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Soothe    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Soothe was designed to calm yet strengthen the body’s immune responses. Oftentimes, we believe that we are allergic to certain foods, plants or animals, but in reality our immune system may be just overreacting. This simple combination of Marshmallow root and Astragalus has made life easier for those who suffer from allergies, hay fever, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis or any hyperactive immune response. 

Dr. Christopher's Kid-e-Trac    Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Trac has become one of the most popular formulas for mental sharpness and clarity, emotional balance and overall health of the brain and nervous system. This formula has been used traditionally for helping the brain function properly via assisting the body with delivering the nutrients to the brain and calming nervous system. Works wonderfully for depression and anxiety symptoms.

Dr. Christopher's Kid=e=well
   Dr. Christopher’s Kid-e-Well is a synergistic herbal blend was designed to help strengthen and assist the immune system of children. This formula is powerful enough to be effective, yet gentle enough to be safe. It tastes great and has been used traditionally during times of cold and flu.

Here are two of my favorite kid’s formulas from Western Botanicals. I think you will agree that it is good to have some Herbal Ear Drops on hand to treat those middle of the night ear infections!

Western Botanicals Herbal Ear Drops    Western Botanicals Herbal Ear Drops soothes and reduce the painful effects of earaches. Also used to decrease lymphatic swelling associated with congestion and infection. Contains Garlic bulb, Mullein leaf & flower, Lobelia herb & seed, pure Olive Oil.  I recommend getting the 1 oz. bottle and replacing it every two years. This one bottle will save a family so much grief from the misery of ear infections and the high cost of running to the doctor.

Western Botanicals Immune Boost    Western Botanicals Immune Boost Formula Syrup - the primary ingredient in Immune boost is Echinacea which has been scientifically proven to stimulate the immune system, reduce inflammation, destroy harmful bacteria and speed wound healing. This very powerful and potent herbal combination should be used at the first sign of illness to stop it in its tracks! No child can resist the taste and you will be amazed with the results. Available in 2 oz.  4 oz. syrup and capsules.

Are your kids going back to school with focus problems?

Summer has flown by and the kids will be heading back to school soon! If they struggle with focus, Western Botanicals has three formulas to try. Everyone is different, so it is nice to have several to choose from. I love that Western Botanicals formulas come in capsules, alcohol extract and syrup, so there is a formula that everyone can take.

Attention Calm has been historically used for ADHD - Attention Focus has been historically used for ADD.

Western Botanicals-Attention CalmWestern Botanicals Attention Calm formula supports mental focus and clarity and is wonderful for people who are concerned about the side effects of a less holistic approach. Difficulty focusing or calming down is often associated with the nervous system. The herbs in Attention Calm are very calming and contains Ginkgo leaf, Passion leaf and flower, Oregon Grape root, Black Cohosh root, Valerian root, Blue Cohosh root, Wild Yam root, St. John’s Wort herb, Grape seed, Hops flowers, Scullcap herb, Lobelia herb/seed pod, Chamomile flower, Wood Betony herb. Available in capsules, extract 2 oz and 4 oz and syrup 2 oz and 4 oz.

Western Botanicals Attention FocusWestern Botanicals Attention Focus formula is used for attention problems where mental focus and clarity are a concern without hyperactivity. Trouble focusing can often be tied to the nervous system. Attention Focus Formula addresses those symptoms and contains Ginkgo leaf, Passion Flower herb & flower, St. John's wort flowering top, Grape seed, Oregon Grape root. Available in capsules, extract 2 oz and 4 oz and syrup 2 oz and 4 oz.

Western Botanicals Brain
                                  CirculationWestern Botanicals Brain Circulation formula is a great aid for mental fogginess, poor memory, stroke recovery or for an afternoon mental pick-me-up. The herbs in this formula promote more blood and oxygen circulation to the brain helping brain function. Brain Circulation contains Ginkgo leaf, Kola nut, Calamus herb, Ginger root, Gotu Kola herb, Rosemary leaf, Habanero Cayenne pepper. Available in capsules, extract 2 oz and 4 oz and syrup 2 oz and 4 oz.

As with so many health concerns I want to reiterate that diet is a large factor in any attention dysfunction and should be primary in assisting in focus and mental clarity concerns. Refined foods and processed sugars should be avoided. Whole natural foods need to be the primary food source. Please address these issues along with using a formula to aid the problem.
