On reading a magazine with letters to the editor about how dangerous childhood illnesses are, I thought it might be time to address some of them. I encourage you if you are fearful of what might happen, get prepared. Read up now and make informed choices about what you are going to do. Set up your plan of action.
One of the most important things to get in order is YOUR SUPPORT CREW. Have a reciprocal arrangement whereby you can call someone, who is supportive of the way you would like to care for yourself and your family, at any time of the day or night, and they can call you.
There is so much information on the internet, you can get it any time and there is no point me giving you a lot now. However, when you have a sick child (or even adult) it can be a very intense time, and we are often under pressure to make decisions fast. It can be scary. Be prepared. Face your fears now, and deal with them so you can be in a place where you can provide calm effective help, and so you don't end up doing something you later regret
Whooping cough is a bacterial infection of the upper respiratory tract, primarily effecting both vaccinated and unvaccinated children. It's highly contagious, and adult whooping cough is not uncommon. It starts as a common cold and develops into a spasmodic, persistent, suffocative cough accompanied by a sore throat, fever, mucus secretion and vomiting. Coughing continues until the lungs are emptied of air and the sudden, hard intake of breath causes the characteristic whooping sound. Coughing attacks are fierce and can occur up to 40 times daily, lasting for two months or longer (it is also called the 90 day cough).
There are many homeopathic remedies that can prevent and treat whooping cough symptoms. The best remedy for you or your child should be chosen by an experienced homeopath based on individual symptoms. One of the main remedies for Whooping cough is Drosera, and here is a little information about this amazing plant:
Drosera will provide relief for many cases of whooping cough if these symptoms are present:
The patient has a loud, barking, frequent, spasmodic cough preventing her or him from catching his breath;Whooping cough symptoms are worse in the evening and night and often begin the minute the person's head touches the pillow on lying down;There may be sharp pains in the chest, tickling in the throat episodes, and excessive sweating during the night.
Drosera is one of the most commonly used remedies for whooping cough, but there are more.
