Holistic child health 101
This course was designed for parents who are keen to learn about their child’s health and what to do when disease presents itself. This is really handy for ‘new’ parents or parents wanting to be more informed about childhood diseases and how to effectively start treating them at home. I teach a little bit of basic anatomy and some of the medical jargon. It’s about educating parents on what is ‘normal’, when to keep your child at home, when to phone their care provider for an appointment the same or next day and when it’s serious enough to contact their care provider on the way to the emergency room. We talk about simple things like, for example, the differences between bacterial and viral infections and when antibiotics would be indicated.
