At least with my oldest child, I think that perhaps the brainwashing I mean education has been particularly effective.

Case in point, today he began throwing up and having diarrhea. Evidently it’s going around?

I offer him some homeopathic Ipecac.

“No. I would rather my immune system take care of it.”

“Honey, it’s harmless. Homeopathics support your immune system. It won’t hurt you.”


Clamps hand over mouth.


Apparently he was listening all those times I talked about the evils of pharmaceuticals and Big Pharma.

A few minutes later after referring to my trusty Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child, I tell him I’ll be giving him some acidophilus later.

“NO! I don’t want anything killing off my healthy bacteria!”

“Sweetie, acidophilus IS the healthy bacteria. You’re thinking of antibiotics. See? It says it right here in the book…”

I take him a small glass of water and suggest he take small sips, not gulps.

I’m surprised when this doesn’t lead to an argument about fluoride and estrogen in the water supply.
