  • yes we take no meds for anything and no immunizations as well. everything is all natural! at 8 months old caroline has only been sick once so far and only for 1 day it was a small cold with a fever. meds work against ur natural immune system. if u dont use meds i believe u will get better faster and a stronger immune system!

  • Thanks for you answers! I want to modify the question a little, the thing won't let me edit: are home, folk, natural remedies:
    A. The only thing you use and believe in.
    B. The first thing you would try.
    C. Something that should work together with medication.
    D. Your last resort - you would try it only if nothing else worked.
    E. Would NEVER use it!
    Please specify if you can!

  • we actually believe in prevention first, allowing the body to heal itself second, home remedies third...and last medical intervention.
    so far, my kids have never been medicated. I did use an aromatic rub on my first child for his first cold.

  • I use herbal tea's for a first resort to my anxiety attacks. When I get to feeling as if i can't get enough air, can't breathe, I will make a cup of tea. I have camamille (sp?) and jazmine tea. I got it at the grocery where the herbal tea's are and it said "calming" on the box. I will go somewhere quiet and drink my tea. Usually by the time I am finished, my breathing difficulties have resolved, and my nervousness and shaking. I have anti-anxiety medications prescribed to me but i will only take them as a last resort now that i found the tea really helps me.

  • I use natural/homeopathic remedies as the first line of defense when it is something minor. Doctors come in to play when it is serious or the natural remedies are not working.
