    If you live with children, your medicine cabinet probably contains an
assortment of cough syrups, decongestants, anti-diarrhea treatments,
and fever-reducers. Such over-the-counter and prescription medications
often do a great job at providing temporary relief from symptoms.
Unfortunately, they can also create their own problems in the
process. For example, decongestants commonly cause drowsiness,
restlessness, and rebound congestion. Antibiotics, when used excessively,
invite the development of dangerous strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

For most common childhood ills, herbal remedies offer a safe and effective
alternative to pharmaceutical drugs—without the side effects. The
majority of childhood ailments tend to be mild, and the best treatment you
can give is one that bolsters your child’s immune system while relieving
uncomfortable symptoms. This, coupled with plenty of rest and nourishing
food and liquids, often provides all that’s needed to help your child bounce
back to health.
The remedies listed here are intended for children over the age of two. For treating younger children with herbs, consult your health care practitioner.
