Formulated by Harriet Beinfield, LAc, and Efrem Korngold, LAc, OMD, co-authors of the best-selling book Between Heaven and Earth: A Guide to Chinese Medicine, Gentle Warriors Pediatric Formulas is a unique line of Chinese herbal prescriptions that should be in every parent’s medicinal arsenal!
There are 11 medicinal tinctures, providing safe and effective pediatric care for all manner of health situations. All are mild-tasting, low-alcohol, liquid extracts that are easy for children to swallow – though adults benefit from them as well! These formulas support and protect the welfare of children, addressing many of the most common childhood disharmonies.
The importance of building health in early childhood cannot be over-emphasized. In these early years, the digestive system is of prime importance. Chinese Medicine practitioners have understood for centuries that the activities of the stomach and spleen dominate physiological and psychological processes during infancy and early childhood. Children consume large quantities of food and fluid while eliminating substantial waste, meaning their metabolisms are highly active while their other systems – respiratory, digestive, nervous and immune – are not yet mature. This makes them vulnerable to imbalances as their little bodies struggle to keep up with their fast growth. This commonly results in stomach upsets, excess mucus, irregular bowels, rashes or excessive sweating, temperature changes, sleep disturbances, restlessness and/or irritability. If left unchecked, these conditions can lead to weak overall defenses, loss of mental focus and emotional imbalance. The Gentle Warriors Pediatric Formulas are designed to combat all these imbalances, supporting your child’s overall health and wellbeing.
Each Wednesday for the next 11 weeks, we will be dedicating a blog post to a different formula, going in depth on its uses and benefits. This Wednesday, we’ll explore Gentle Warriors’ Chest Relief formula. Stay tuned!
