I was ironically pressing send on this post, sharing how we'd lead a healthy lifestyle while on our most recent trip to far North Queensland.

That's when it started to creep over me. The headache started pulsing behind my left eye, my body began to ache and my bed was calling me louder and louder. Despite the warmth under the blankets, my teeth were also chattering loudly. I was down and out.

It took me a couple of days of being bed bound before I mustered up the strength to clear my mind and work out a plan of attack with my herbs, nutrients, probiotics and oils on hand. Whether it's you or your little loves suffering with a sickness, when you're in the midst of it all, its no easy task trying to strategise a medicine routine. 

So that's why I wanted to open up a conversation about important topics when it comes to children's health- croup, ear infections and avoiding antibiotics. So you can be equipped with your actions steps ready to go for when the next acute family health challenge comes knocking. 

I thought it would be a helpful time to invite back, Childrens Health Naturopath Ashlee Yates to have the discussion with me. 

Ashlee Yates is a degree qualified Children's Health Naturopath supporting children and families through upset tummies, coughs and colds, itchy skin, sleeping issues and everything in between.

As a result of her own experiences as a mum, her clinical focus has developed with a strong interest in the health of children and their families. She now works primarily with families navigating digestive concerns, sleeping issues, recurring illnesses, colic and reflux, eczema, and learning or behavioural concerns.

Ashlee believes that as a parent, you're doing the best that you can with the knowledge and resources that you have available to you at the time. With nutritional and herbal medicine, she is able to complement mainstream medicine.

Her goal is to share her knowledge as a Naturopath with evidence based herbal and nutritional medicine so it can be used safely and effectively in family healthcare.

Ashlee joins me in episode 91 of the Glowing Mumma Thriving Bubba podcast.
