Growing Pains… Ease Them Naturally
Let’s face it, we parents don’t want our kids to be in pain and when it occurs,
we want that pain to go away fast. But, do we really want to teach our
children to reach for a bottle of pills every time they have an ache or a pain?
Personally, I want my child to be as drug free as possible.
That is why I reach for a topical natural pain reliever when my children have
a body ache or pain.
One of the times that a natural pain relief remedy might be necessary during
a child’s growing years is when they are in a growth spurt. During this time,
children can experience growing pain.
Two common growth spurts usually begin between the ages of 3 and 5 and
then between 8 and 12. It usually is within these two age groups that growing
pains are most common. It is interesting to note that growing pains occur less
frequently in those children that are less active
Growing pains are not a chronic pain. The
pain occurs mainly in the evenings and at
night. Sometimes the pain will wake a child
In the book, “What’s Happening to my body?”
by Lynda Madaras, the author states that
growing pains are “a dull, painful, achy
feeling. Often felt behind the knee, in the
thigh, or along the shin. They may also occur
in the arms, back, groin, shoulders, or ankles.
Doctors don’t really know what causes growing
So what causes growing pains? Some sources say that the cause is the fact
that bones and muscle grow at different rates. During a growth spurt, the
pains tend to come more often and may be more severe because bone
growth and muscle growth are temporarily out of sync.
Some sources state that growing pains are not caused by growth, but they
do cease when growing stops. The growth rate slows from three years of age
on wards and only picks up again with the onset of puberty.
Growing pains do not cause limping. If your child is experiencing major,
chronic pain, it is not simply growing pains and you should consult your
health practitioner for advice.
Although experts cannot seem to agree on exactly what causes growing
pains, they do all seem to agree that a warm bath, stretching, massage and
an analgesic might be helpful. They also agree that growing pains are not
dangerous and eventually go away. As a mom, my suggestion is to always
reach for the most natural pain relief product you can find.
Judy Cutler, mom, proud grandma and inventor of “Naturally Painless,” a
natural pain remedy says, “We encourage our children to eat fresh fruits and
vegetables instead of “junk foods so that their bodies grow strong and
healthy. So, it only makes sense that when they are in pain, we provide them
with safe, natural solutions that don’t create undesirable side effects that they
suffer with later on.”

Fortify Your Body's Immune System Against
the Possibilities Of Getting the Flu this Winter!
Recently the media has bombarded us over the airwaves with threats of
pandemic viruses. This is not the first of these events to occur.
There was the Swine Flu,the Bird Flu (also known as the Asian Flu) and, of
course, the 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic.
The broad-scale upset that is caused by this broadly publicized threat throws
people into fear and focuses their attention on the body and its potential
demise or, at the very least, great suffering, and the loss of production and
The most productive way to be on top of the situation is to focus on
something YOU can do to fortify the glands and organs of your immune
system so that any invading organism cannot survive in your body. This
includes testing the thymus gland, the spleen, adrenals and the lymphatic
system and fortifying them. At BioTech Solutions, we also check for the
presence of bacteria and viruses currently in your body.
This is accomplished through a nutritional analysis and a customized formula
to strengthen and fortify your Immune System and to provide an internal
environment that is very "unwelcoming" to invading organisms.
We've created "The Peace of Mind Special" for only $85 (plus Tax/S/H) with
the purpose of boosting your body to allow it to avert this threat entirely or
greatly minimize its impact if you are exposed.
I hope that you take advantage of this special for yourself and for your family.
It is a far less expensive solution than waiting until the flu strikes and then
dealing with its effects.
