I recently got 2 wonderful tips for children from my friend and fellow acupuncturist Nicole Hohmann, L.A.c.
1. Boost and protect your child’s immune system with astragalus. Astragalus is especially good preventively for children with frequent infections to take in the winter time and for kids with allergies. The brand Eclectic Institute has a spearmint flavored glycerite liquid form of astragalus. Follow the dosing guidelines for your child’s weight found on the label. You can put it in juice, but do not give too much juice, especially orange juice, to sick children as it could cause more phlegm. If you want to read more about the benefits of this herb, click here
Both of these products can be found at most Whole Food markets.
