As a parent, I understand the many complications when a child is ill. Not only do our hearts get confronted with their suffering, we also have to make sacrifices to our sleep, work schedules and the rest of our family members. Chronic childhood conditions like asthma, allergies, anxiety and ADHD can take a serious toll on our productivity and especially our sanity.
Conventional pharmaceuticals have taken the lead in offering drug based solutions that sometimes come with serious side effects. Take for example, the prescription drug Ritalin which is an amphetamine given to young children for years to help with ADD symptoms. Drugs such as corticosteroids given for eczema or with albuterol for cough in allergic kids, can have serious side effects and neither treat the cause of these conditions, but they are at times needed to stabilize an acute flare.
