Anyway, regardless, he has had the sniffles.... but nothing else out of the ordinary.
This, naturally, has lead me to think a lot about what I did as a young parent to help my children with the healing process when they were younger and we all had colds, flu's, parasites, whooping cough etc.
Imagine getting woken up at 3 am by your (cherished) children coughing and throwing up orange foul stinky puke at least once or twice every other month for a few months. Well, I did.
When I lived in Manti Utah and had 2-3 young children we all seemed to always be sick. Not too bad, but bad enough that it drove me crazy to see that we just could NOT figure out why or where it came from or control it.
I would dread the AM wake ups because my heart would just ache for my sweet children to see them going through the torment of just feeling awful and their bodies just aching, having cramps and diarrhea, or full of mucus and having difficulty breathing. This would scare me. This, in turn, lead me to do some heavy duty research into HOW to make my children well...and where the causes were coming from.
I asked around and kept my ears and eyes open for solutions etc.
I had one particular neighbor tell me that over the years there had been a woman whose children had the same symptoms, only to suspect that her faucet water was contaminated with Giardia. She petitioned the city to do testing but they would not. So she paid thousands of dollars to do her own investigating and found that indeed her Manti water was infected with this parasite and that the city water plant was situated next to the sewage plant and that it was somehow seeping into the city water. This was all fantastic news to me and allowed me to finally know WHERE our illness were coming from.
Giardiasis (also called giardia) is an illness caused by infection with the parasite Giardia lamblia, also known as Giardia intestinalis. Giardiasis is usually caused by drinking water that is contaminated with the parasite. In the United States, G. lamblia is most often found in untreated streams, rivers, and lakes.
Symptoms of giardiasis include diarrhea, a lot of gas (flatulence), abdominal cramps, and nausea. In some people, giardiasis does not cause any symptoms. In other people, the symptoms may keep coming back (recurring).
So, in the meantime I did research into herbal remedies and the such. I had one particular family friend whose father owned a rather large National Herbal Tincture company who shipped out their herbs all over the world. He had written a famous book on herbs, and knew how to heal your body naturally. "Own Your Own Body" Stan D. Malstrom
He was very wise, and she had some awesome tips on how to keep your children and self well. She had just recently had a new baby and this baby had come down with Pneumonia at 3 weeks old! That was very dangerous.
Living with her parents at the time, they had taught her the incredible benefits of giving enemas to people who were ill and was adviced on how to gently give a 3 week old newborn an enema to remove all mucus blockages in the baby's intestines.
She may have added mild herbs to the water but I don't remember what. Within a few hours the baby was over the majority of the illness and within a few days was back to normal. This was a great miracle.
I had decided that we would try enema's on myself and our own children when we got sick again. Sure enough it wasn't long.
This time I had bought a small enema bag at the drug store and read all the directions on how to give one to children and adults and felt confident on how to do it. I may have added a few mild herbs to the water (small amount of garlic powder maybe) and made sure that my child (probably 4 year old Austin) was comfortable and relaxed about the whole thing.
Sure enough it cured him almost instantly !!
Within a few minutes he had NO congestion in his lungs and he began to breath better and within a day he was back to normal. WOW, this was a true MIRACLE from God and I was so relieved that it had worked so well and especially NATURAL...(NO drugs).
My ex-husband and I also used Enemas on ourselves, every time we did not feel well...no matter the illness... and PRESTO, we would be well within a few hours. It was truly a life saver.
We soon invested into a home Colonic board which allowed us to do enemas right over the toilet with little clean up and much more comfortably.
I KNOW that this may all sound GROSS to many people, who just don't know the benefits, ease, and over all miracles this step in helping your body heal, does....but I didn't at the time and now don't care what others think....all I knew and know now is that it works.
Believe me, I've had dozens of friends give me weird looks and crazy stares when they would ask me for help with their ailing child and I would tell them about the huge success I had with enemas!! LOL
OF COURSE...you must be VERY careful in administering one and do NOT do very many of these very often. It does strip out beneficial intestinal flora of course so only use it in major sickness and illnesses...PLEASE.
Vitamin C is a FABULOUS vitamin that when taken in large doses can induce diarrhea once you reach your tolerance level. It flushes one out without an enema.
So use Vitamin C first or always to help your body heal and flush before you turn to an enema if you like...unless you need immediate results, then do use an enema.
Over many years after this new found wisdom, my ex-husband and I continued to use enemas and even our children would ASK for one when they were just NOT feeling well and they needed to unclog (or un-congestion) their lungs and/or bodies.
Sometimes they did NOT like getting them...but afterwards they were always grateful when they felt a whole LOT better!
After a few years into the Health and Nutrition circuits and seminars our family became Vegetarian/Vegan and soon did NOT have as much pathogens in our food and kitchen to make us sick, so we found that we used enemas less and less.
I will admit that just a few years ago I was feeling ill and so I decided to do an enema. I used some herbs I had around the house to put into the enema water but I had put a little TOO MUCH of these herbs and it had given me a BAD reaction to the enema. That was NOT fun. I really thought that I might have to go the the hospital since I felt like half my body was going numb. That was NOT a smart enema. I really learned that a person MUST be VERY careful NOT to put much more that a very small amount of anything in the purified water that goes into an enema.
I could go on and on about enemas and the incredible benefits of them...but I would be here all day typing so instead I will leave a link here for anyone interested in finding out more about the incredible cure called : The Enema
