Introduction – What to do in case of children acute illness

This document is to help you face an acute condition. An acute condition is defined as being “present and of severe of intense degree”. It is in opposition to chronic, which means “persisting for a long time and constantly occurring”.

It is important to keep yourself cool and be prepared for when your child faces an acute illness. This is because an acute condition would divert a lot of the child’s vital energy to redress the issue. Another way to explain it is that a child’s immune system is not mature and will be over-responsive at times. This can lead to extremely stressful situations.

However, by using natural approaches, you can allow the child to restore health promptly and safely and also allow the child’s body to manage to balance the immune response more effectively. This document will help you put a base for your healing, keep it handy and refer to it when your child get sick.
