Treating children

Children are usually easy to treat. Their problems tend to be acute, and they have less history, less baggage than adults. Find out what’s getting in the way, and they will bounce back to health. Sometimes there are dietary adjustments to be made, especially if the child is suffering from respiratory problems – glue ear, repeated infections or allergic reactions – or has trouble concentrating. That can be challenging, but nowadays at least there are plenty of other families following a similar path.
It’s misleading to compare a herb with a drug, but if I had to substitute a remedy for calpol, it would be chamomile (Chamomilla recutita). It isn’t mauve and sickly sweet, but it does calm upset stomachs, soothe anxiety and take the edge off pain; and it won’t rot their teeth or send their blood sugar through the roof. It works for adults too, which is why it’s one of the most popular herb teas.
