Do you suffer from Sun Rash or Prickly Heat??
As a fellow sufferer, I have found a couple of simple solutions that work for me and my family. I switched to more natural suncreams that are free from parabens, SLS/SLES, irritating emulsifiers and fragrances. My favourite is Green People’s edelweiss sun lotion which has a natural tan accelerator in it and I use their scent free lotion for my children. I also use stinging nettle drops or nettle juice in the lead up to the summer(!) or if I’m going on holiday. Nettle can reduce symptoms of prickly heat quite dramatically and is well worth trying.
Diann Fletcher Jones amongst many things is a recently qualified medicinal herbalist, as you can imagine Diann herself is very passionate about the health benefits that herbs can bring and so has decided to share some of this information on a monthly basis! And hopefully before too long we will have a catalogue of different herbs for various ailements and conditions that you can refer to anytime you wish.

Tomatoes in excess are one of the common causes of internal acidity
A natural tan (with or without the sun)
There are many over the counter remedies and traditional treatments that have been tried and tested throughout the years but personally I think that unless the bacteria environment of the vagina is brought back into balance problems can be reoccurring. The majority of people at this stage know that beneficial bacteria have multiple health benefits and indeed it is hard to be on top form if your bacterial flora is out of whack!! But what most people do not know is that different strains of bacteria naturally live in different parts of the body, therefore the issue or problem determines what probiotic to take.
Jacob Age 8 Months
If you are unable to breast-feed, it is so important to find a milk formula that suits your baby – and don’t give up until you do!
Jacob was suffering from almost constant vomiting and diarrhoea, and every nappy change his clothes had to be changed as well. He often seemed to get hives, particularly after certain meals, and subsequently was awake and crying all night. He would then be like a demon the next day! He woke on and off through the night even on the better nights. His nose was either very runny or completely blocked, and he couldn’t breathe through it. He had always had reflux, and so Jacob’s mother had been asked by his doctor to add Gaviscon to all his bottles (a medicine used to relieve heartburn). He had already had 3 antibiotics for ear infections.
