I often get asked this question, “Are you sure that natural remedies can really help me with my conditions?” Now look, I am no doctor, nor am I a medical professional. What I am is a homemaker, turned entrepreneur in this world of holistic therapies, with one goal in mind – finding an alternative to allopathic medications that can help alleviate different conditions.
What are natural remedies all about? Essentially, it is using plants and natural elements with distinct properties to heal and relieve symptoms, thus safe for use and are proven to be very effective. It has been around for thousands of years, way before the advent of modern medicine, with long-standing treatments and cures. In a way, it can be said that it is like going back to basics.
Modern medicine is pretty much at everyone’s disposal. You’ve got a headache? Pop an aspirin. However, prolonged use of some modern medicines can cause harmful side effects to the body, and should be used with caution. However, with natural remedies, as the ingredients used are untainted by chemicals, the risk of side effects after a long-term use is extremely slim (we always caution our customers to do a patch test before use of our products).
The idea of natural remedies, which is a component of holistic therapy, is designed to enhance internal biological healing, and accelerate the body’s self-healing capabilities, and strengthen your overall immunity. It also focuses on the body as a whole, promoting relaxation and stress relief, to assist in reducing severity of the symptoms and condition that the user is experiencing.
Understanding the properties of different plants is key to be able to harness and benefit from it. For example, eucalyptus extract is ideal nasal and chest congestion relief, while peppermint oil is perfect for headaches. The correct combination of different essential oils, coupled with the proper use, allows you to maximise the properties, helping you heal and get relief faster.
Of course, I would advise you to also maintain a healthy lifestyle, get sufficient vitamins, and maintain a healthy diet to help your body heal and to put you into a better state of mind.
Additionally, in comparison to modern medicine, natural remedies are considered to be inexpensive, and generally more affordable. It also lasts much longer as you simply have to apply a thin layer of the balms and blends, or a few drops of the essential oil into a carrier oil or your diffuser.
At Kidz Paradize, we have formulated balms and blends which are designed to specifically address certain conditions, such as colic, nausea, nasal and chest congestion, stress-relief, itch and skin irritation, and more! We’ve made it easy for you by incorporating different essential oils into one single product, so all you’ve got to do is apply the balm or blend to your skin.
And since they are all natural, you will not have to worry about using it on your young ones (except for those that are indicated not for children, such as our Rub Away Pain), as it is safe for all! So that means, everyone at home will be able to enjoy the benefits of our products.
