What’s in your holistic medicine cabinet?
Some at home problems don’t need any intervention at all. Some need acetaminophen, ibuprofen, dextromethorphan or more. Thing is, most moderately granola moms know that there are miles between non-intervention and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals but they don’t know where to start. The Family Care Chinese Medicine Cabinet Kit can help with common problems like:
- colds and flu
- stomach upset
- bumps and bruises
- and achiness
are all things that can be treated naturally. So if you’re looking for the step between non-intervention and reaching for the OTC options, read on.
The Family Care Holistic Medicine Cabinet kit includes:
- Zheng Gu Shui for bumps, bruises, and arthritic pains. Because of it’s focus on bone pain and healing it can also be helpful for growing pains!
- Bi Yan Pian for sinus congestion due to colds, the flu and allergies.
- Yin Qiao San for cold and flu prevention, strep throat (in conjunction with antibiotics), colds with fever and sore throats
- Huo Xiang Zheng Qi San for stomach troubles, diarrhea and motion sickness. It can also be taken as a preventative for food sensitivities (but not intolerances or allergies so please be careful!)
Is the Medicine Cabinet kit right for you and your family?
This kit has some good, general formulas but all medicinal things can have side effects.
If you choose to buy this kit it may behoove you to schedule an appointment with myself or a local herbalist to check for any danger herb-medication interactions or to see if the herbs are contraindicated for your pattern.
Always check with your own care provider before making any lifestyle changes for yourself or your family.
If you are on a laundry list of medications, stick with what your doctor says is healthy. There is such a thing as “too much medicine” and adding supplements may throw off your balance.
If you are doing any hormonal treatments for thyroid issues, fertility or menopause please avoid all herbs and supplements until they have been checked for interactions. Hormone balance is incredibly easy to disrupt.
