How Do You Treat The Sympotms When Glutened?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My daughter is 4 and is having the big D again this week. I don't know if she has caught something (I don't think so), or if she was somehow contaminated. She spent three days this week at friends houses while I worked. These people are used to taking her and are careful, but I have found that she has fewer symptoms when people either come here or I don't work as much and she only goes to school and then is in my supervision.

Anyway, my question is do you ever give your children anti-D meds. I have read they are not recommended for children under 6, but she cannot control her bowels, soooo that means 4 accidents yesterday and 3 today and counting. I am going to put a diaper on her now, I don't usually do this, she probably won't wear it, but I am tired of doing smelly laundry.

Is there any natural treatments out there that people use.

Thanks for all your help, don't know what I would do without this bored!

Try peppermint or mint blend tea. I drink it hot and it is very soothing. It immediately stops my nausea and seems to help with the D and bloating. Maybe you could have a teddy bear tea party. You could try it with honey in it or cool if she doesn't like it hot. I hope she feels better soon.
