The biggest concern of a mother is that her little one gets sick. We worry, from a simple mood swing to a sudden fever, we feel our world is crumbling.
Recently, Fernando, my 6-year-old son, had a sore throat and it happened overnight. I prepared a natural remedy that has always worked for these cases: honey, lemon, onion and salt. But during the course of the day the symptoms started get the best of him. He just wanted to be in bed, wrapped up, and with his Nemo (a stuffed toy so old that doesn’t even look like the original lost fish from the movie anymore). Knowing that there’s a virus going around, I went out to stock up on natural remedies to see if I could help him with his discomforts.
It was when I found myself at the counter of the pharmacy, with this organic syrup from the brand Maty's, which is made with honey, marjoram, cinnamon, cloves, zinc, lemon peel, cayenne pepper, sea salt, apple vinegar and lemon balm extract. It was created by a worried mother just like me, so I immediately identified with the brand.
As I like stories, I started to investigate the brand and I will tell you soon about this product. This mother, is really the mother of the girl Maty (that's why the name of the brand). She says that everything started after her concern to help her daughter with her health since her birth, she had three heart surgeries by the time she was 5 years old, which resulted in her immune system being weak.
On top of that, she had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Desperate, and seeing the side effects that traditional medicine caused them, she began to investigate natural remedies, and is how her kitchen became the laboratory where this story began. With this natural remedies alternative, she seeks to help more mothers with the same worries that she once had. The beauty of this story is that her daughter, who is not so young, recovered completely, and is currently in good health.
Fernando, only two doses of the remedy, began to show improvement, and it did not hurt so much to swallow. I always recommend having this product on hand, to be prepared in case we see any of these symptoms in our children. Of course, if the situation worsens, or the child develops fevers that do not go away, it is advisable to take them immediately to their pediatrician, as it is always best to be ahead of the game. The next day Fernando was healthy, playing and jumping as usual.
