any home remedy instead of doctor's fever medicine and antibiotic

my two girls growth smart to throw all the the medicine... but they have high fever close to 39 and yet coughing at night and early morning and running nose..... sore throat too....

a cup of honey with lemom - 1 tbsp lemon and 1 tsp honey --- I tried
grape juices --- I tried
air kelapa --- I tried
water melon juices --- I tried

anything that you could suggest...

old ppl think if we let our kid suit themself with whether change, they will be more healthier - stand under rain for a short and wipe dry.... but I can't try when the kids is not feeling well......

no denggi only virus or bacterial infection.....

Overdose of garlic. This helps for bacterial infection but not virus.

Take a walk down memory lane, I recall I used to suffer from sorethroat regularly when I was young. There was a time I had to see doctor almost every month ! Every time the doctor would prescribe Antibiotics. They once even suggested an operation to remove my swollen glands. This went on until I found a cure ---- a carbon water filter. Yes, that was the end of my story. Since then I have not had a sore throat for almost 20 years now.

New research indicates that heavy use of antibiotics during childhood increases the likelihood of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), a cancer that affects the body's lymphatic system.......READ THE STORY.....

life ranger,

I installed waterco, the big filter OUTDOOR and the carbon water filter INDOOR. whereby the carbon water filter cost me RM80.... black colour filter..... change the filter every year....

to be honest... previously, I don't let my kids eat medicine, they eat supplement, multivit, vitamin c and calsium in their milk (I put extra), they drink protein, meal replacement, drink acelora cherry (vitamin c).... they are so healthy but recently husband want it to be same as other kids ...... drink milk powder and that's it when other's kids sick, they are sick too......

I stay outdoor most of the time, bring the kids to bookstore, windows shopping, kids and gyms, mega mall and so on.... they are staying healthy even if they catch cold , it recover by a day...

but nowsaday, it seem that it take 1 weeks plus and the fever is up and down, coughing is severe

i think i should do what i used to do, they stay alert and active and healthy rather than now...... very sleepy.

it may cost more to eat healthy but when healthy gone, it left nothing than headache

Waterco has 10 miron filtering capability. Nesh membrane is 0.01 micron.

What brand is the RM80 carbon filter ? I am using the German brand AMC which is compressed carbon and allows daily use of about 30 Liters water for 1 year. If you use more than its daily allowance, better change the filter less than 1 year.

Beware when taking food supplement. Some vitamins are not natural but synthetic. I think local vege & fruits are more beneficial since these foods grow naturally at this latitude of the earth thus providing the suitable nutrients to the local people.

Bear in mind, Soy protein may not be good for young kids in excess. http://www.mercola.com/article/soy/avoid_soy.htm

no denggi only virus or bacterial infection.....

my 5 years old son have the same case happen, this is what the doctor give him,its in the form of inhalation n it won't affect his appetite or make him sleepy or dizzy at all and also won't affect his health like normal tablet medicine:

-(A) cough : Asthalin Brand - Salbutamol Pressuried Inhalation BP 200 metered doses
each actuation delivers salbutamol BP ..00 micrograms
- (B)For the lung also: Boehringer Ingelheim Brand - Inflammide 50 mcg/puff metered aerosol - 5 ml

For the 1st week - inhalation for (A) + (B) 4 times a day
For 2nd week - inhalation (A) + (B) 3 times a day
For 3rd Week - inhalation (A) + (B) 2 times a day
For 4th Week - inhalation (A) + (B) 1 times a day n whenever necessary only when his condition get better.
The following weeks - give only when its necessary otherwise none.


Now my son seldom cough or get running nose, and if in the morning if he have any running nose i will quickly give him a dose/inhalation then the running nose will go off . I try so many home remedies for my son still it didn't work. :)

hope this can help u a bit. :)

aiy.... babies get sick again, one by one, i can't even differentiate day and night liao....

we came back from IOI mall after dinner at Esquire Kitchen - already sense that kids not eating... the next morning.. dada ... elder got sick - high fever with 40 celcius, i put away the medicine aside.... (she will vomit all the medicine - got more work to do then), go market, buy fruit - coconut, carrrot, watermelon, orange, grapes, papaya, guava, apple, pear, blend into juices and serve her fresh juices with vitamin c. she got muscle pain, and for the whole day, so got to give her some chinese way of "kot sa" to scratch lightly on her head, back and legs. no porridge but drinks only as she request.... the next day..... dada.... she is back to normal until today..........

the youngest with high fever two nights ago, she can't drink as much as her sister, so being a good mother, i drink plenty and give her breastmilk.... she was much better last night, can walk and smile and laugh as normal...... thanks god, no medicine and dengue infection.

so need to buy more fruit and veggie for juices purpose ...... particularly with this kind of weather where morning with sunshine - it burn my skin while driving (even with glove) until afternoon or evening, rainning with strong thunder,storm and wind. morning from 29 celcius to 35 and evening from 32 to 28 with rain and night to midnite.... drop to 27 - 26.

some more go chinese medicine shop and see people asking for "leong cha".... a few packet from man and women, market having promotion for "leong fan" with pandan leaves and "kok fa cha" with rock sugar.

leewinnie46, by home remedy I am assuming you mean 'traditional' forms of medicine? Can I ask, what's wrong with 'Western' medicine? Have you tried it? Perhaps the reason your children are sick is because they are not receiving any medicine at all?

i think your "traditional" meant "natural" medicine. Western medicine has failed our people. Today, even while prescription drugs are more frequently consumed than ever before in the history of civilization, people are actually sicker than ever. Western medicine simply does not work. And most old-school doctors whose myopic view of health prevents them from exploring the true causes of healing. Modern medical schools don't even teach healing or nutrition. No practitioner of western medicine has ever taught a single thing about being healthy.Read this to find an answer for the mind confusion of prescription "Western" drugs : http://www.healthranger.org/

I would suggest chicken soup. Some people say that it works. From the symptoms that your girl exhibit, looks like flu to me. I would highly suggest that they see a doctor for the fever and general relief. Otherwise, it will be quite an experience for them and you too.

to be frank, my kids hate medicine, the minutes they consume, the next second is all out from the mouth to the floor and their clothes.

both have high fever and no running nose.

but when i surf some web page , the solution would be lemonade n fruit juices n no water, no meat boiling soup.

i certainly see many nice people like timo,life ranger n bugbear who willing to crack their brain for someone they don't know - me - tq a zillion

that's a good sign that your kids able to reject those synthetic medicine by their natural-born instinct.

i think you need to monitor if the symptom like high fever is repeating often.
i remember you mentioned that you prefer to keep the kids inside the house with air-con, would this be one of the cause ?

i still remember when weather change so suddenly, hot - cold , cold - hot with heavy rain.... it's not sign to open windows or doors widely as it's like u pour water on overheat pot or pan, the chemically effect is the gas that generate during the water touch the hot surface. but today we are referring to our land which is so warm and overheated, with heavy rain pour, this chemically effect is the one which kids and old folk can't stand it.

My kid and some friend's kids seldom get such weather related ailments. My wife n friends believes in Transfer Factor so they fed their kid a couple capsules a day and so far so good, the kids nvr fallen ill for the last many moons.

Good healthy diet helps the body to build a stronger immune system, but if the 'wonder' supplement actually build immune system directly, then why not? cool:

but the thunder, rain and wind will bring along -ions soon enough to clean the air. so far i have not noticed any side effect of the hot road, perhaps it is worst if one is standing in the middle of the road while it begins to rain.

grape is foreign fruit. its nutrient is not meant for tropical people here beside laden with abundant pesticide and preservative.

I used to supplement my daughter with Seven Seas cod liver oil. She used to get stuffy nose very easily and it does not go away easily. She used to have high temperature and coughing and wheezing and etc.The doctor told me that it was probably because my daughter was a premature baby and prone to respiratory problem. After taking that cod liver oil, at least when she get her usual problem, it does not goes on forever. But now that we are in Australia, I found out that you cannot get cod liver oil as easy as in Malaysia. Only certain pharmacy stock it and they kind that they have is without any flavour. My daughter refuses to eat that. But so far since we are here, even with the weather changes drastically, or even when she has her cough, it is not that bad any more. No need for her to take any antibiotic.

Anyone who stays near a power plant isn't that good. Cause it will actually affect our health, kids sick all the time, women whom are pregnant lagi not advise to stay near those area.

A person who is healthy also can get sick often.

make them sun-bath during 8 - 10 am / 5 - 7 pm should enhance their health.

I do agree that kids need to be under the sun to play and sweat. That way they're healthier and more alert and hyper.

i've been giving scotts emulsion orange to my 2yr old son ever since he was around 1yr plus... it is really good! he hardly gets any flu, cough, or fever since then. once in a blue moon yes but very very seldom. But of course food diet must take into consideration too. I give him one tablespoon every nite before he sleeps...

sun bath, morning 8 to 9 no evening sunshine, that's roasting not sunbath

i always bring my kids out... to taman, shopping mall, bookstores.... i wonder some parent only bring kids out during weekend but i bring them out during weekday and weekend too..... mostly bookstore like Ikano Power - Popular or MPH - Mid Valley, taman like between batu caves - kepong , PKNS taman, kota kemuning taman, or just nearby small taman.... they get mosquito bite much more than sunbath ler....

Since I'm in Aussieland now, I stop giving my kids with seven seas cod liver oil. But the weather in Perth are really crazy now. Last week it was in the top 30's and this week in their lower 20's. No wonder I am having my headaches now.

i have no idea how they fine-process the cod liver oil but definitely preservative, coloring, flavour are added. i usually consume raw honey.
recently, i start drinking this home-made "spring-return" water according to Dr Looi Jiu Nan' instruction http://www.lapislazuli.org/TradCh/magazine/199505/19950506.html
