Speaker: Kenneth Proefrock, ND. Expanding the herbalist’s toolbox with nebulizers, eye drops, nasal sprays, mouthwash/gargles and enemas, we discuss the most common presentations of pediatric patients and novel ways of addressing those conditions. We describe managing the most pressing needs of the patient and their families in acute illness, the natural course for the resolution of those conditions and ways to assist the child’s body in that resolution. Included are specific botanical medicine strategies using tinctures, powders, topical agents and hydrotherapy techniques. Conditions include management of EENT/respiratory infections, digestive upsets and skin infections. We discuss both long and short-term side effects of the pharmaceuticals often prescribed for these cases.
