(Read more about Holistic Health Practices on our resource page, and enjoy this week’s articles on the theme.)
Jorje opted against Western Medicine to battle Sasha’s roseola fever. She was quite pleased to find that skin-to-skin will actually break a fever! Thanks, NPN community, for sharing the tip on Facebook!

From Lauren: “Don’t let my son’s 6-pack abs distract you. The point of this picture is the bandage on his hand. He had become a speedy scooter by 14 months, and he scooted himself right into contact with a heat gun — yowch. After confirming it was a second-degree burn but superficial, we were able to treat it at home with raw honey and clean bandages, and he was quickly able to use it again, as you can see.”

Tell us: What does healthcare look like in your family?
Note: Families are free to choose the healthcare that is appropriate for them, and many of our readers choose holistic treatments as a personal decision. Nothing in NPN articles should be taken as medical advice or the final word on any topic. Please cross-check with your own intuition, child(ren), co-parent(s), other family members, community, research, experts, books, and healthcare professionals.
