September brings the excitement of a new school year as well as exposure to germs that inevitably cause running noses, coughing, sneezing and other dreaded cold symptoms. Of course you can run to the pharmacy and pick up a wide array of cold medicines, or you can turn to all natural remedies that are vegan-friendly and allergen-free.
Over the counter medicines come with risks
With recent recalls and warnings of medication overdoses, all-natural cold medicines can offer relief from cold symptoms without the side-effects and toxic ingredients that commonly come with synthetic medicines.
Maty’s Health Products
One of my favorite line of all-natural cold remedies is Maty’s Healthy Products, a brand based on time-honored healing traditions passed down from grandmothers to mothers to children. The cofounder of Maty’s, Carolyn Harrington, came up with the Maty’s brand when her daughter Maty was born with severe heart defects and without a spleen, resulting in surgeries, medical difficulties, and a weakened immune system.
“Desperate to help my little girl, I devoted my time to finding natural remedies that would help her get and stay healthy. I began to apply modern knowledge of nature’s healing agents to the age old remedies I was discovering. It is these traditional remedies I discovered in my research that have now become Maty’s All-Natural product line. Our line of all-natural remedies is made from only the purest ingredients, procured from responsible sources. They are safe and effective and created straight from a mother’s loving heart,” Harrington explains.
Back to school all natural cold products for kids
