Taking Charge of Your Health


»There are so many great things
about parenting, but let’s face it, sometimes raising kids can feel like
your heart is running around outside of your body. None of us like
it when kids are sick and need medicine. And choosing a medicine
for your child can also be scary. With so many dangerous chemicals
and side effects to worry about, being cautious is understandable,
and nowadays staying informed is very important.
Today lots of people like homeopathic medicines and use them
successfully and safely. In fact, more than 500 million people around
the world have used homeopathy. These days homeopathic medicine has
become so popular that one out of every two kids has been given
a homeopathic medicine. All parents want to make sure the medicine
we give our children is safe. So how can something like belladonna be safe
for use in a child’s medicine? It’s a great example because there’s a
lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about this plant, and when ingested
directly, it can be poisonous. That’s why people shouldn’t eat it.
But eating the berries or leaves of belladonna is completely different
than taking homeopathic belladonna in a highly diluted medicine
manufactured in an FDA inspected facility. Homeopathic medicines
are extremely safe. It’s a matter of dilution.
So, let’s explain that a bit. First, the plant substance is turned into
liquid tincture through a standardized process including the addition of water
and other liquids. Dilution begins when you take one part of the
liquid tincture, to illustrate let’s say one drop, and mix it with nine drops
of water. Next, the solution is shaken and agitated in a specific
standardized way for a set period of time. Then, one drop of that new
solution is further diluted by mixing it with nine more drops
of water and then shaken again. This process is repeated again
and again until you get to the desired level of dilution.
If we use Belladonna 12X as an example, the process is
repeated twelve times, and the resulting dilution has one part
of the original tincture and 1 trillion parts of water. That’s a lot
of zeros! Twelve to be exact. Once you understand a little bit
about how homeopathic medicines are made, it’s also important to know that this
process is scientifically documented and standardized by the
Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. Reputable
manufacturers follow HPUS guidelines and are subject to regular
inspections by FDA and other state government agencies. At
some point our kids will get sick, and when things go wrong, we’re going
to search for answers. All parents want to make sure the medicine we give our
children is safe. And when you see an ingredient like belladonna, it’s a natural instinct to
search the web, find information and possibly jump to conclusions –
even doctors can make this mistake. But when the ingredient
says Belladonna 12X HPUS, that means it’s homeopathic
and is made to be gentle and safe.

  1. Could the FDA be looking for a scapegoat? What if something else being medically administered to babies is causing seizures and even sids? What if there was a pharmaceutical product that parents are required to give their children via their pediatricians? What could it be?🤔

  2. FDA approves poisonous medicines and vaccines but issues a stark warning on homeopathic teething tablets. Shameful! The FDA hates anything natural and wants total control of our health. I don't trust the FDA whatsoever… Their word means nothing to me.

  3. Of course it is safe, it is so diluted that there is nothing in it. I ate an entire bottle of homeopathic sleeping pills in one go, and there was absolutely no effect. Safe and completely ineffective.

  4. I am so glad that the government is finally cracking down on your scam artist industry. Federal Trade Commission ordered this week that all homeopathic products on all their product labels, now must: "effectively communicate that: 1) there is no scientific evidence that the product works; and 2) the product’s claims are based only on theories of homeopathy from the 1700s that are not accepted by most modern medical experts.”

  5. All I know is that I have given this to my daughter and my son. They were crying and irritable then calm and sleeping. Now that it is gone what are my options, Tylenol/motrin. These are considered safe hundreds of kids are hospitalized every year from overdoses and side effects. It all comes down to $$$. We consume foods that are poisonous all the time. Lima beans, kidney beans and nutmeg (just to name a few) are poisonous, but I don't see anyone pulling them off the shelves.

  6. The Food and Drug Administration urged parents Friday to not use Hyland's homeopathic teething products containing belladonna, commonly known as deadly nightshade — a toxic substance.
