Sharing Shaklee {Week 7} The Medicine Cabinet - Part 1

As a mom, I know just how it feels when watching your child in pain or uncomfortable.  Whether it's from a cold, tummy ache or headache, we want to ease the pain of our children.  In my Baby Steps to create a healthier home for my family, I'm creating a Shaklee Herbal Medicine Cabinet.  And here's how:

Stuffy Noses and Coughs:
Smash: 5 Alfalfa and 1 Zinc
    For Infants or Young Children: Mix it with lukewarm water and pure maple syrup, put in eye-dropper.
    For Older Children: Add 1 to 2 NutriFeron, mix with applesauce, preferably organic.  Give two to three times a day for a couple of days to break up the mucous.
    For Adults: 5 Alfalfa, 1 Zinc and 2 NutriFeron.
  Coughs:  Liquid Lea and Chewable Vitamin C

Diarrhea and Vomiting:

  1. NutriFeron: can be crushed or taken as a pill.
  2. Stomach Soothing Complex
  3. Garlic 3 times a day (Crush 2 Alfalfa with 3 garlic to help prevent upset stomach).
    For adults: Take 9 - 12 garlic per day to achieve antibiotic affects.
    For nursing moms: If you take the garlic and the alfalfa, it will get to the baby through the milk.  It is also encouraged that you take EZ-Gest, an enzyme that will help break down the garlic for the stomach and the breast milk.
    For non-nursing moms: Crush garlic capsule and pour it in baby's sock and leave in overnight (1 capsule per sock).

Additional Ideas: Mashed potatoes with crushed garlic, hummus with added garlic, onion soup with added garlic.

Chewable C for sore throat (gets into the blood quicker if you chew it).


  1. Take Shaklee Defend and Resist: take 7 days on and 3 days off.  Not to be taken long term.  
  2. 3 Pain Relief Complex

         For Children: 3-4 Chewable C, Calcium, 3 smashed garlic, 1 Pain Relief Complex

These products can be purchased at {}.  Come back next week to learn more about the Medicine Cabinet. 

What are your tips, tricks or advice when your child is feeling sick?
