Leg Compresses

Leg Compresses

My grandparents and parents already used leg compresses to lower a fever - it's a simple trick that got passed down and never fails to work.Fever is a good thing, it's protecting the body against infection. Just when it gets too high (40 degrees or above) it's good to lower...

Puppers & Asthma

Puppers & Asthma

Having a puppy is brilliant - hard work - but brilliant. I wanted her for the kids and also a little bit for myself. I had no idea I was also doing the health of my children a benefit. Recent studies show that growing up with a dog actually reduces...
