Let's discuss Pertussis, also known as Whooping Cough, or in China; 100 Day Cough!
Pertussis is a contagious respiratory disease, caused by the bacteria Bordetella pertussis.
Early Symptoms Usually start with cold-like symptoms and maybe a mild cough or fever, can last for 1 to 2 weeks and usually include: Runny nose, Low-grade fever (generally minimal throughout the course of the disease) Mild, occasional cough, Apnea – a pause in breathing.
Pertussis in its early stages appears to be nothing more than the common cold. Therefore, healthcare professionals often do not suspect or diagnose it unless or until the more severe symptoms appear.
The traditional Later-stage Symptoms of Pertussis, after 1 to 2 weeks if the disease progresses, include: Paroxysms (fits) of many, rapid coughs followed by a high-pitched “whoop” sound, Vomiting (throwing up) during or after coughing fits, Exhaustion (very tired) after coughing fits.
It seems that everywhere we go, all anyone can talk about is disease…I for one, wish that we could go back to talking about fishing or vacation for a change! Well, if everyone used homeopathy, I believe that we could!
Remember, disease has been around since the fall of man, and trust me, it’s not going anywhere…
The point is; disease is here to stay…and yes, eventual death. Just because.
However, by using homeopathy, you can help strengthen your family’s immune system to help them to recover from illness and injury. Even including Whooping Cough!
Why is it important to feel well? Because, it is easier to be Joyful and Charitable when you feel well!
I’ve listed Several of the Top remedies to look at in case of exposure and / or symptoms of this dreaded disease. I say dreaded, because it is a hassle as a parent to have deal with a cough for several weeks! Homeopathy and herbs can shorten and quickly alleviate your problems.
