Stress vs. Rest

Stress vs. Rest

One aspect of the five pillars of health that is undervalued in our culture and often not talked about, is rest. Most of us, including our children, are so overscheduled that we have become unfamiliar with rest. To many of us who come from a lineage connected to family farming, rest was akin to laziness. Rest seems like an indulgence for which we feel we don’t have time, nor entitlement. But rest is not an unnecessary indulgence. It is a need, without which our innate balancing mechanism cannot function. Without rest, our bodies, minds, and spirits are out of harmony, and illness is often the subsequent result.

How to Treat Hives in Children

“The best remedy for hives is to try to avoid whatever triggers them, although identifying this is often difficult,” said board-certified dermatologist Bruce A. Brod, MD, FAAD, clinical professor of dermatology, University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine. “One way to help identify your triggers is to keep a log of your child’s symptoms, including the day and time the hives occur and how long they last. You should also pay attention to any changes to your child’s regular environment that may be contributing to the problem, such as dust, animals or the outdoors.”
