Too Willing to use Poison!
Every time a child has a cough or a fever--too many parents are grabbing the popular drug of the moment and dosing their children. All of these medications are poisonous to greater or lesser degrees and some are severely dangerous. All interfere with the body's attempts to restore harmony. See report at the end of this article:
"Many act as if health and disease were things entirely independent of their conduct and entirely outside their control. They do not reason from cause to effect, and submit to feebleness and disease as a necessity. . . they resort to drugs as a cure for the evil. But the drugs taken to cure the disease weaken the system." MM 296.
We need to reason from cause to effect far more than we do! Remember that a fever is never caused by a deficiency of Tylenol! Nor is a cough caused by deficiency of Triaminic!
When a symptom becomes apparent certain questions need to be considered, here are a few examples: What has the child been eating or drinking? Has there been an adequate intake of water? Is the child overtired? What is he wearing? Is he chilly? Has he been exposed to a lot of excitement? Are his bowels moving adequately?
In most cases, if a child is given a drink of water, a good warm bath and rub down and is bundled in some warm clothes and popped into bed for a good nights rest, he will be fine in the morning. Giving a does of medication will only interfere in Nature's efforts to set things straight as the poison must be dealt with before the original problem can be taken care of! Sometimes by then, it is too late and the problem is much worse.
One of the common happenings that cause the drug bottles to come out of the cabinet is a night-time cough. Actually, it is one of the simplest things to deal with by using natural methods. First thing is have the child drink some water. Even Asthma is often just a lack of adequate hydration.
Second thing is to make sure the child is dressed warmly with their limbs covered so the circulation is balanced. Bare limbs, even in hot weather, cause the blood to be forced into the trunk of the body causing congestion in the chest. Putting on a pair of socks will often stop a nagging cough or sneezing fit. Be sure to check for draft, a fan or air-conditioner or even wind from a window should not blow directly on a sleeper, esp. a child.
If all this is attended to most coughs will settle quickly. If this fails there is an external method that works well. Rub a small amount of Vicks Vaporub on the child's feet and put on a pair of socks.Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. This works 100 percent of the time, and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines.
In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly. Cough medicines in children do more harm than good due to the chemical
makeup of these strong drugs. (see below)
People who have tried it with a very deep constant cough and persistent found it worked 100 percent! One lady said it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. The coughing stopped in a few minutes, and she slept cough-free for hours every night she used it. If you have children or grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed by the effect. But be sure to check the information above as well.
We need to learn the amazing results that can be obtained through the use of God's number 1 remedy--water. A couple glasses to drink, a warm drink of lemon sweetened with a little honey, a warm bath and a rub-down, a compress or wrap to a congested chest or a painful sprain--water is a powerful remedy that helps nature's work instead of stalling it.

Notice this report:
mother suffered a
while she was driving home from my house on and died
3 days later. My mother's stroke and passing was an enormous
shock to my family because she did not have any symptoms or risk factors
for a stroke. Just the week before she had gone to her doctor for a
check up and received a clean bill of health. She did, however, develop
a cold while she was visiting me and had taken Alka Seltzer Cold Plus
for 3 days. Since her passing, we have learned that
is one of the many cold medicines that contains Phenylpropanolamine (PPA)
which can cause hemorrhagic stokes or cerebral bleeding even with the
first use. I am forwarding a list of other medications that currently
use PPA. These medicines are supposedly being recalled but my mother
just purchased this medication less than two weeks ago. Pharmaceutical
companies have known about this danger for years, we unfortunately, did
