Teething has been a long and delayed process. Out of all our children, I believe that our Anni has struggled the most with her very first tooth that finally peeked through this month. She is the baby of the entire family, so helping her through her difficulties is a family affair. It’s so precious to watch the other children help to console her and give her plenty of hugs and kisses during her difficult moments.

The most effective solution we have found to settle her when the tooth is giving her trouble is Camilia® Single-Use Liquid Doses. I have mentioned before that the key to homeopathic medicine is frequency and consistency. Camilia® is designed for children one-month-old and up, so it’s a great solution to irritability associated with painful gums, teething, and digestive issues sometimes associated with teething. The single-use dosages can be administered every 15 minutes up to nine times a day. I could tell after Anni’s first two doses that she was becoming calmer and settled.  The noticeable difference encouraged me to continue with several more doses until she was back to playing, smiling, and enjoying herself again. My favorite part is the main active ingredient in Camilia® is chamomile, reducing the risk of numbing the baby’s gag reflex or other side effects common in other teething medicines. The calming properties of chamomile are the perfect answer to so many of life’s ailments.   I can rest assured that Anni is getting the same wholesome homeopathic support I would offer to the rest of the family in a pre-measured, snap off, a single-use dose of gentle medicine. Camilia® works best when taken at the first sign of teething and I'm glad we got started right away! She is working on tooth number two right now, and she is doing much better with the support she is getting from her daily doses of Camilia®.

The winter months are always difficult for ailments and illness, but I have been really surprised at the number of colds and viruses flying around this summer. We were dealing with a summer cold when ColdCalm® from Boiron® arrived in the mail, so I was excited and curious to get started. ColdCalm® temporarily relieves cold symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, and nasal congestion. I spend a lot of my personal time feeding my family fruits, vegetables, and herbs so we are pretty healthy for the most part and colds stay pretty mild when they do surface in our household. Anni’s cold was limited to a runny nose, nasal congestion, and general fussiness, and after a whole day of treatment with ColdCalm®, she was feeling and looking better. ColdCalm® is for children six months of age and older and should be taken at the first sign of symptoms and can be repeated 3-6 times per day for maximum relief and can be reduced with improvement. I am so thankful that there is an easy to use earth sourced solution to help Anni when she is battling a cold because we all know how often they tend to get sick at this age!
