Mommy Is Home Returning home after one of the most epic experiences of my life felt so good. A newfound appreciation for the simpler things in life, like a pillow and brick walls etc. I’ve missed the kids so much. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was so good. It was good for my soul, but being away from my kids, and especially missing my Princess’s birthday was hard. Only once I had returned did I hear about all the things that went wrong while I was gone and my heart-felt an actual pain. As mothers we want to protect, nurture and love as much as we possibly can and if we are not around it’s just not possible to do that or be that. My birthday girl got sick while I was gone and although she was in good and capable hands, they weren't my hands, and that just broke my heart. "No one can like mom can." kind of feeling. When I listen to all the stories and how sick she really was I am thankful for what I am about to share with you, because I am sure it made a difference.
Gut Health I’m not exactly sure, but around two years ago a concerned friend called and told me briefly about the importance of gut health. Having four kids is not easy, but keeping them healthy and off antibiotics is a whole new ball game. Nika went on antibiotics the first time when she was only 17 months old, Roxy was a new-born baby when Nika got tonsillitis for the first time. I will never forget it. It was the first time I ever had to deal with fever, a baby just lying there so sick that her body was hanging in my arms, helpless and lifeless. Once I got the antibiotics she recovered within two days and was back to her old self. I was so happy and thankful. I thought antibiotics were the best thing since sliced bread. This however taught me the wrong thing. Each time the kids got sick after that I wouldn’t even hesitate putting them on antibiotics just to get them better. The problem was that I had so many “babies” at one stage that the last thing you want is some viral infection or something similar, breeding in your home. I just wanted to kill whatever came in as fast as I could. Terminator mom style. Little did I know that it wasn’t just killing the bad bacteria but also the good bacteria in their little bodies and each time they got sick they had nothing good left to fight the bad. And so this cycle just kept on repeating itself. Every winter and every change of season we would go through this. Some winters even four or five courses of antibiotics. This is in a period of three months, which means one week on, one week off. Even writing this I realise how bad it was and I just didn't know. https://youtu.be/ey_PLFQ_vYI
What Good Did It Do? It was a solution for my immediate problem, and it really was. Each and every single time. Sleepless nights are not my strong point so I was happy to get the babies well again even if it was for just a week.
What Bad Did It Do? It killed everything good in their bodies to fight anything bad and each time they would go on another set of antibiotics it would just break their little immune system even more, making them more vulnerable to viruses and bacteria. At the time they weren’t in school yet. I kept them home with me for as long as I could, but even then you can’t protect your kids against all things out there.
The Call I have a friend and she called me one day, I’ll never forget it. Nika was seven already and she read on Facebook that my kids were sick again. She spoke to me for a long time. I was standing outside the classroom waiting for Nika and everything she briefly told me made so much sense. Thank you Nadine, I will forever be thankful for that call. She introduced me to Colloidal Silver. She shared a couple of YouTube videos with me on Whatsapp which I watched over a period of time until I decided enough is enough. It was time for change! I had to do it for them. https://youtu.be/cjGOZFJ9co8
Did you know that it takes your body a year to reproduce good bacteria after one course of antibiotics?
Enough Was Enough It was time to claim my life back! It was time to claim their good healthy guts back. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy as their little bodies have been so broken by the antibiotics over the years, but I was willing to bite the bullet and do it. I got hold of a bottle of Colloidal Silver and started giving it to them on a daily basis. I stopped all antibiotics and told my husband it was banned from our house. It was hard, each time the kids got sick, I had to be strong for them, it took longer to get better, it was harder and the journey wasn’t easy but we did it. Slowly but surely I got to the point where I did not run to my doctor for every little snotty nose and the kids weren’t on antibiotics every three to five weeks.
