down

My immunity system is down for the count.

Classic symptoms of a stay-at-home mum, who still feeds through the night and who may try to put a little too much on her plate at times...

Off to an appointment this evening for both Indi and I to try and get things sorted naturally. That's the goal you see. I know the quick-fix approach would be some steroid cream for the Little Miss and a prescription for anti-biotics for me. But, 'quick-fixes' just aren't my style. I like to dig deep and get to the bottom of things.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I'll still be popping in for {this moment} and {piqued picks}.

Wishing you love, health and happiness on this cloudy Sydney day.

i am so, so glad you are doing this. especially avoiding antibiotics. Even though they make a difference in terms of how you might feel, chances are a lot of that is the placebo effect .. and it's better to check out those vitamin/nutrient deficiencies, let yourself get better by yourself. Quick-fix antibiotic use is a really big problem, causing non-pathogenic gut bacteria to become resistant to these antibiotics, meaning they are no longer effective. There is a massive disconnect between the scientific community (that i am a part of) and the clinical practise community. A lot of doctors will prescribe antibiotics even when they know it's just a cold - to keep the patient happy, especially when they're paying for their services. But a lot of the time they are unnecessary!

a very long comment to say good for you. :-) x

Hi Meagan, did you try shea butter for Indi's skin? It works wonders for extremely dry and sensitive skin...

I hope you start to feel better soon, I had a look at that red tent site, what an amazing place that looks to be!
Oh, I found the coconut oil worked beautifully on coopers eczema, so thanks for the post recently and reminding me to try it.

Poor you & poor little Indi. I do hope you can get things sorted out. I grow an aloe vera plant in a pot, for skin problems. It's not a cure but a comfort and works on our little poodles itchy patches. He stops scratching. Just a small piece of the leaf broken open to expose the gel inside which you smear onto sore bits. Non poisonous too.
