Jasmin’s been super sick this week!
Its been pretty rough.
It started with a fever and then nasty cough.
So the fever went away but the cough stuck around.
At first we were only using essential oils and herbal extracts.
She lost her appetite so was nursing at first. Until she got congested and couldn’t nurse as often. For those days she was nursing it felt like I had a newborn, constant nursing! I had such sore nipples and felt drained, plus had low milk supply.
Then when I finally got my supply up, she couldn’t nurse! Well, I was just glad her fever had dropped. So we visited our chiropractor, as we do twice a week as normal, and she had an awesome cough free nap! Then we got Dr. Rydland’s kidswellness cough extract from Whole Foods which started helping right away!
I must say this was a very trying time as a mommy. It was taxing on all levels that I had to keep constant prayer and reminding myself she was just a sick baby and needed alll my love.
Seeing Dr. Rydland was encouraging. He checked Jasmin and reassured us that she is well and gave us some tips and herbal extracts that will help her. It was nice to spend an hour visit with a doctor and such a wealth of knowledge.
So here are the bible verses I leaned upon:
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
This song was pretty helpful!
Essential oils we used for Jasmin’s Temp.
These were diluted in coconut oil, about 1% oil in coconut oil and rubbed on her lower belly and bottoms of her feet.
Essential Oils we used for respiratory support
Young Living Blends: R.C. And Raven
These were diluted in coconut oil, about 1% oil in coconut oil and rubbed on her chest and feet.
Because of Jasmin’s constipation we decided to do an enema. Please talk to a doctor and do your research before you decide to do this on your own.
Our family goes to the chiropractor twice a week for wellness and therapy for some ailments Mr. P and I have. This time Dr. Fisher did a couple techniques to help with Jasmin’s congestion. He truly helped her get things moving in her healing. Praise the Lord.
We highly recommend Dr. Rydland pediatrician!
I also had to take care of myself of course:
Key thing was cleaning up my diet. So with the help of Mr. P we are once again vegan with a highly raw vegan diet.
For help increasing milk supply
Fennel essential oil
Mothers milk tea
Burdock Root and Yellow Dock Root tea( these I drank because of some reason my cycle decided to come in so this helped with iron intake)
Essential Oils I used for nipple soreness
Used these neat directly on my nipple. If skin is sensitive place coconut oil or vegetable to ease the absorption of the oils.
I hope this helps my friends!
May God give you grace and strength. May you be filled with the Holy Spirit!
