We have all been in a situation where we have had aches, pains or a headache and have reached for the instant relief of Tylenol or Ibuprofen. But what is that doing? It is temporarily blocking those receptors so that we don’t “feel” the pain. It’s only a band-aid, a quick fix, not the solution. 

At Well-Rooted Pediatrics, we want to address the problem.
Why are you having the pain?
Why are you having a headache?

A good thing to keep in mind is that addressing the underlying problem will not happen overnight, it’s going to take some time. 

There are several remedies that are natural – from essential oils, herbs and supplements that have been shown to help different ailments without having to turn to OTC (over the counter) medication. 

One thing to keep in mind though is how you feel. If you are having a stomachache due to excessive hunger or a headache due to dehydration, an essential oil or herbal is not going to help.

If we can work together to identify the ROOT cause, you will be in much better shape. 

 

So how does one get out of the “quick fix” mindset?
