One of the most common questions we get from parents is what to give their kids when they are feeling out of sorts -whether it’s due to a cold or flu, stomach upset, hyperactivity, etc. We most often recommend the Kan Herb Company formulas because they are concentrated, allowing smaller doses for therapeutic benefit. They’re also easy to drop in a child’s favorite beverage to mask the flavor while maintaining efficacy.
To help all the parents out there, we’re sharing this handy-dandy quick reference guide to the most common indications for the Gentle Warriors formulas (Note: these formulas are sometimes used in combination to treat certain illnesses)…
Windbreaker – earaches, sinusitis, sore throat, colds, flu, allergies
Chest Relief – laryngitis, cough, phlegm
Pipe Cleaner – bronchitis, painful cough, tenacious phlegm
Open Air – acute asthma, wheezing
Deep Breath – chronic asthma, wheezing
Grow & Thrive – poor appetite, low resistance, weak digestion, frail
Tummy Tamer – indigestion, gastroenteritis
Easy Going – constipation
Belly Binder – diarrhea
Fire Fighter – rash, hives, impetigo, bites, stings
Quiet Calm – trauma, stress, moodiness, hyperactivity, crankiness
As always, if you have any questions about any of the above or to obtain a prescription for your child, give us a call or book an herbal consult online with Tamara here.
