I WOULD URGE YOU TO DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE VACCINATING YOUR CHILD AGAINST CHICKENPOX, OR ANY OTHER OF THE CHILDHOOD DISEASES. THEY ARE NORMAL DISEASES, WHICH TEACHES THE CHILD’S IMMUNE SYSTEM HOW TO WORK PROPERLY. THEY ARE NOT DANGEROUS, EXCEPT WHEN THE CHILD IS ALREADY SUFFERING FROM SERIOUS DISEASES LIKE LEUKAEMIA AND OTHER CANCERS, OR ARE ON MEDICATIONS LIKE STEROIDS. EVEN THAN IT CAN BE HANDLED PROPERLY! I WILL PUT UP LINKS TO GOOD VACCINATION SITES
We were always invited to visit the children in the neighborhood who had chickenpox, mumps etc. so we would get it. It is the best way to build up a natural immunity against these diseases, and to have your immune system have a good run in learning how to operate properly. Your children will thank you for this in later life.
- Chickenpox is caused by the one of the Herpes viruses, just like shingles, genital herpes, fever blisters on the lips and mouth (cold sores), blisters lesions on the eye and Kaposi’s sarcoma or KS.
- It is a childhood disease usually found in children under the age of 10 years old, and usually making its appearance in autumn and winter
- It is an acute, infectious disease characterized by a rash consisting of crops of lesions
- When you have had chickenpox once, it usually makes you immune to it for the rest of your life
- It starts of with a slight fever, some tiredness and headache
- Blisters may appear in the mouth and throat. These are very painful when they break open
- The rash first starts within 23 hours on the trunk, especially the back, and then spreads to the face, the arms and the legs
- Within a few hours, the red spots change to pimples, which change to blisters with fluid inside of them.
- Within a few days they will start forming scabs which quickly fall off.
- At any given time there will be a rash, pimples, blisters and scabs, all at the same time
- There is itching during the drying up stage, which is very irritating
- From start to finish it takes about 2 – 3 weeks
- Make it a special time for your child, telling stories, making drawings together etc. It is a perfect time to really get some one on one time with your child. I have very good memories when I was at home with these diseases.
- DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD IN FRONT OF THE TV OR COMPUTER!
HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR CHILD:
- Keep your child calm and let it rest / sleep a lot. Sleep is a master healer!
- Give it plenty of water to drink
- Start your child on the Basic Wellness Program
- Do not give your child anything containing sugar or refined food. Sugar suppresses the immune system, and if the child has blisters in the mouth and throat, you do not want sugar getting in those blisters
- Do not give your child Aspirin to lower the fever. Fever is part of the immune system response (See: The immune system simplified)
- If necessary, cool the child down with a lukewarm bath, or some wet cloths around the neck and on the forehead
- Apply the Shingles Cream right from the beginning when the rash appears. The child will not itch, and it will help to prevent leaving any marks
THE SHINGLES CREAM:
Following is the recipe for the Basic Shingles Cream. It will work for chickenpox, shingles, cold sores and genital herpes. You will obviously want to make more, so just multiply it accordingly:
- Take 1 tablespoon of Aqua’s cream and put it in a glass jar. This is just a water based white, un-perfumed cream that you are going to use as a base
- Add 1 crushed Aspirin in the Aqua’s cream
- Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the mix. It can be either fresh lemon juice or a “natural” one you buy in a bottle in the supermarket
- Apply the Shingles Cream thickly on the lesions with some cotton wool. Do not touch the lesions with your bare hands, as the fluid from the lesions is contagious and you can pass it on to other people
- Let it absorb properly through the skin, and apply again a few hours later. Do this a few times a day till all the scabs are gone
- To prevent scarring, keep on applying the Cream twice daily till they are not visible anymore
- Do not wear clothing that are made from synthetic material, but wear cotton instead. Old cotton T-shirts are nice to wear as they are already soft
- Do not eat peanuts or peanut butter or anything that contains peanuts. Peanuts trigger the herpes virus to become active
