So I'm pretty anti-drug now. I mean, I've never been into drugs/meds (who is?) but especially now----well, they make me all sorts of nervous. Even the most basic pain relievers have shown that they can cause some pretty serious damage. And I have the most deafening ringing in my ear to prove it. (no thanks, pass).
I mentioned this last week, but unfortunately (but not surprisingly) we've been getting hit with the germ spray that Marlowe brings home from pre-school. I caught a nasty fever from it about two weeks ago and now Alex is sick this week. We're all doing our best to be preventative about it: lots of water, vitamins, oranges, lemons, ginger everyday, but you know, sometimes you just can't help it--- you get SICK! It's not fun. (Obviously).
I'll be honest, prior to this experience I hadn't looked that much into natural medicines. We just tried to steer clear of medicines as much as we could-- and took them only if they were completely necessary--- which often times they weren't. But now, with Marlowe in school, well the coughs and stuffy nose counts are high--- and I'm realizing I need to look into the best options to fix minor problems to get her happy and back to school--- safely.
I'm super excited to introduce you guys to Maty's. I was sorta hesitant when they reached out to me (again, scared of all medicines), but as soon as I looked into their ingredient list and their mission statement, I was absolutely sold. They're products are ridiculously safe-- there's no strange chemicals or additives, no parabens, no bad stuff at all. Simple, natural, and effective.
They have products for the whole family, the kiddos, and babies too. You can see the full list of their products HERE. Their vapor rub? It's awesome-- I'm tempted to use it on myself, even on the nights that my nose works completely fine. And the cough syrup? The ingredient list looks like a magical superfood! It's all the good natural sickness fighting stuff packed into one perfect little bottle.
Maty's ingredients are 100% natural with zero side effects and have no drug interactions at all. They are petroleum, paragon, and phthalate free. They are also gluten, dairy, soy, corn, wheat, artificial preservative, color additives and sweetener free.
I know theres a time and a place for all medicines and whatnot-- but more than anything, it's so so important that we start educating ourselves on everything we put into our bodies. There's no reason that we shouldn't all start with non-toxic, chemical free, natural and healthy ingredients. I'm personally super happy to have found Maty's. Happy for Marlowe's growing little body and happy for my peace of mind :)
ps. Marlowe asked if she could set up the photo/bottle to be photographed. She then decided that here was, in the spot of sun was best, and crawled away. Sure kid, love you.
