Title: “A master herbalist approach to common childhood ailments.”

My subject will concern following points and ideas:

  1. Master herbalist approach to healing
  2. The wholistic approach when treating children
  3. When to use herbs and when to seek medical help.
  4. Diet and nutrition
    C. Best herbs for children

    3. Common ailments and their natural solutions.
  6. Cold and flu,
  7. Fever and infections,
  8. Skin solutions including cuts, bumps, and bruises,
  9. Digestive issues.




The wholistic approach to healing includes procedures that would restore and rejuvenate any part of the human body. There may be several causes of the physical malfunction, the holistic approach is to treat causes and not the effects of the malfunction. The holistic approach would only allow wholesome, organic substances being used to heal, and nourish the human body. Substances and therapies those are uplifting to the body, never damaging its cells.

Herbal medicine can be safe and effective, with thousands of years of knowledge behind it. Herbal medicine sees the body, the mind and the spirit as one “whole”, that is the holistic medicine. Every patient is individual, therefore need personalized treatment and customized herbal remedy. Herbalist takes under consideration the whole picture: child’s age, nutritional status, the family lifestyle and home environment.

Herbs are effective but gentle healers. They work in natural harmony with the child’s body system. Children’s bodies are sensitive and react promptly to plants’ synergistic, efficient, gentle effects. Herbs can be used to fight any simple common ailments such as colic, rashes, teething, all kinds of scratches and bruises, as well as the many common illnesses such as ear infections, stomach bugs, colds and flu.  Herbal nourishment of the body to enable fight with a potential or already existing infection also help to restore constitutional wellness, this is the essence of the master herbalist approach.

In my research, I would like to include which herbs are safest and most effective to deal with common childhood ailments, but also how to maintain healthy body condition, when to use herbs and when is best to seek medical help, how to prepare and apply herbs and their preparations.

Often the simplest treatments offer the most amazing results. A simple daily routine such as applying salve or simple dietary changes such as drinking herbal tea may improve whole body condition. Children’s health problems are generally related to the environment and diet. Children little bodies need nourishment, high-quality foods in their diet, wholesome fruits, vegetables, grains and seeds as much as an herbal infusion can be very nourishing. It is also essential to contain vitamin C in the diet and plenty of water.

The child should be physically active and energetic all year round with plenty of outdoors activities. At the same time a proper amount of rest is required to gain a state of full health.

In my dissertation research, I intend to base on the literature. I do wish to perform a short interview with a holistic practitioner, who specializes in children to show the practical use of holistic approach, also to research the most common child issues and ailments and focus of my work will include the last part, containing ailments and their herbal solutions.



Literature: This is the list of books I intend to use in my dissertation research, this list may expand as my research will progress. It will all concern in full literature review.
