The safe, all-natural remedies for your child’s seasonal allergies
When it comes to fighting seasonal allergies, many of us who suffer are prepared to simply grin and bear it.
However, if it’s our child who is suffering from seasonal allergies? That’s another story.
There are few things worse than watching your child struggle with an irritated throat or a runny nose. Whenever our child is sick, we want to help them, and fast!
If your child is suffering from seasonal allergies, the first thing you should know is they’re certainly not alone.
The stats on seasonal allergies
According to the CDC, in 2010 8.6 million children were reported with respiratory allergies.
That’s staggering, but there’s an even more worrying side to this figure: it’s increased every year in the past decade!
So, what’s the deal? Why are the numbers increasing the way they are?
The short answer: we don’t know. But there are plenty of theories that range from the amount of GMOs in our food, to the wealth of contaminants that are constantly being introduced to our environment.
Not knowing what’s causing our kids to suffer this way is infuriating. Not only does it affect their play time, it can also really affect their school performance, as well.

Whether the classroom is within a school or in your home, it’s important that your child is in an environment where they can focus.
Well, they’ll have a hard time doing that when they’re coping with a runny nose, incessant sneezing, and a sore throat.
We desperately want our kids to have the best chance of success, so what do we do? We run to the local pharmacy and grab some over-the-counter allergy-relief, of course!
Unfortunately, our Master Herbalist, Stacey Littlefield, informs us that this may not be a great idea.
“Many of the over-the-counter medications offered for children’s allergies actually hinder the learning process. They decrease focus and concentration. They cause drowsiness in some kids.
How’s a kid supposed to learn anything under those conditions? And how many of us parents are aware of those possible side effects?”
It doesn’t take a scientist to see how quickly your child’s grades could be impacted by this situation.
Is it really too much to ask for a solution that’s safe and healthy for our kids?
