Natural Approach to Childhood Illnesses – Overview
Childhood illnesses and healing approaches are examined from a holistic perspective: an integrated approach of scientific knowledge and spiritual aspects of the human being and of nature.
A child’s long–term health may be better served when parents allow their child to go through common childhood illnesses, rather than suppressing illness with medicines. The best way to get over your concerns of letting your child have those fevers, rashes and coughs, is by learning how to use soothing home remedies and applications, so that you are prepared to care for your child in times of illness.
Wiep will demonstrate various natural external applications and discuss remedies that can help heal your sick child. Learn how to prevent illness and how to strengthen your child’s ability to overcome illness.
We will have discussion time to follow the topical presentation. Please, bring any questions you may have about these, or related topics. This is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge from individuals with a wealth of experience.
- Light refreshments will be provided
- Please, bring 1 large towel and a bowl, made of glass, ceramic or metal
