We use many Homeopathic medicines in our house, if they are even needed to begin with. I've fought ear infections with garlic, sore throats with honey with the older kids and just used it for my youngest. It took the bad cough away within a day, ear aches gone pretty much the same day as well. I've fought pink eye endlessly and now don't have to rush them to the doctor as a homeopathic medicine has made it simple to battle an ever accruing thing with kids.
With all the medicines out there and shots, you choose what's best for you and your family. I've never liked what some of them have done to my kids or myself. They have made my kids hyper, drowsy, angry, and jittery, some even interact with my husband medicine. I started researching Herbal and Homeopathic remedies and was shocked to find out how much of the stuff I already had in the house. As with any medicine,check with your doctor before taking anything, just because it says it's not a drug and it's over the counter doesn't make it alright.
