Homeopathic Remedies for Kids
Homeopathy was first discovered by Samuel Hahnemann in 1796 when he came up with the principle that “like cures like.” Thus, each homeopathic remedy is made from an extremely diluted substance that has similar qualities to the symptoms it is targeting.  It is thought that when the body encounters the homeopathic, it responds and combats the corresponding symptoms. You’ll find a variety of homeopathic remedies for kids specifically to help with common immune issues. Some of our favorites include Hyland’s Cold N Cough.

Probiotics for Kids

Benefits include curbing pathogens (harmful microorganisms), helping aid digestion and increasing immune function.
