Natural Herbal Remedies for Children

Giving Herbs to an Infant

Right around when my daughter was 2 months old she became colicky.  For any parents who went through it or are going through it right now, you know how heartbreaking and frustrating it is.  Your calm, happy baby turns into an uncomfortable, uncontrollable screaming baby from about 4-7pm.  Nothing you do can soothe him/her and you feel like it’s something you did or aren’t doing  (thoughts that are constantly running through all new parents’ minds).   After about the fourth day of dreading the clock striking 4 we called the pediatrician and went for a visit.  To my dismay, they said it was “typical” and would go away on its own in 2-4 months.   2-4 months! The thought of having our baby scream for hours everyday for months was not acceptable to me or my sanity.  They also said to try watered down chamomile tea (which may work for some, but not for us) and to buy grape water from the store (which I found to contain a ton of sugar, which I was not comfortable feeding to my 8 week old).  After trying the Western approach with no success, I turned to my training in Chinese herbal medicine.   To my relief there was a product from one of my favorite herb supplier’s pediatric line that fit my baby’s symptoms to a tee.  I immediately rush-ordered the herbs to my house.  Even with my extensive training in herbal medicine, I have to admit I was still hesitant to put anything in my baby’s pure little body besides breast milk, but I also knew that I wanted her to be back to her happy self.  At last the herbs arrived and literally within 2 minutes of her sucking on the dropper she was calm – no more screaming and squirming in my arms  – I got my serene baby back!!

The pediatric line of herbal medicine is in tincture (liquid) form and is administered through a small dropper similar to infant Tylenol.  The herbs are concentrated in a glycerin base for children as opposed to the alcohol base that adult tinctures are made from.  Chinese herbal “formulas” are delicately composed of several different herbs so that they are a balanced, yielding virtually no side effects.  This is in contrast to Western herbal medicine where herbs are typically given singly.  Chinese herbal medicine is a time-honored form of medicine that is very safe and effective, even for the purest, littlest people on our lives.
