I started BeingHappyMom two years back with thought to share my motherhood journey with like-minded moms by sharing my own experiences and learnings.
I have two kids, one is 6 years old son and 7 months old daughter. We practice conscious living by shifting towards organic food, avoiding plastic in our household products as much as we can, treating day to day health issues with home remedies. So we thought, why not to share remedies which we use in our lives with others and learn more remedies from People around. As I know, many of you also practice home remedies at home for certain health issues.
So let’s practice more and more home remedies…
And avoid giving heavy doses of allopathy medicines to our kids for common diseases. It has many side effects on our growing up kids immune system and growth.
How strange and wonderful it is to see that how we use home remedies, no matter where we live.. because ultimately we all want well being of our family and loved ones.. cold and cough is really very common in kids and grownups.
I used to panic when I first time became a mother… But eventually, I understood that it’s common and there are more than 200 different types of viruses that can cause a cold. So, home remedies and ayurvedic treatment is best as per my current understanding.
