• Mycoplasma

    Posted by Cara Grow on July 6, 2024 at 1:04 pm

    My 5 year old was just diagnosed with mycoplasma/walking pneumonia and prescribed a z pack. He’s never taken antibiotics before and I’d prefer he not have to now. Any recommendations for alternative treatment? He’s on day 9 of cough and low grade fever and starts kindergarten in 10 days. I’d like him to be healthy starting school.

    Hey Cara! You want to use your nebulizing oils (myrtle and RC for example). You want to apply oils every hour and make sure to apply RC to your chest with a warm compress on top. Take plenty of detox baths, take your enzymes, and LOTS of Ningxia.

    Also just for future – this would have been a great scenario to use the Virtual Urgent Care visit with Jodie to get help ASAP! You can find the link for that on the member dashboard. She tries to reply to messages on here as quickly as possible, but urgent care gets you help within 15 minutes.

    Cara how is your son? Did he start school today? Sara’s suggestions are great -and remember Vitamin C in high doses during acute illness is always a great tool. Ningxia and detox baths with baking soda and epsom salt, manuka honey (tasty so usually kids will take it on a spoon no problem) and bone broth!
