My almost 4 year old daughter has been very sick for two weeks with one of the above, she saw two different GPs who said different things and both prescribed antibiotics which I didn't want to use (and didn't), but surfing the net in desperation for my little girl who was in so much pain I could barely touch her.
I found this website. I gave her a tbsp of extra virgin coconut oil and made a warm drink with Apple Cider Vinegar and she was so much better when she woke up at 6 am. She has had 2 tsp of coconut oil straight out of the jar this morning and her extremely swollen neck is nearly gone completely and all other symptoms have subsided. I must add that over two weeks there were no signs at all of improvement and I am so relieved and stunned and overjoyed. Thank you Earth Clinic and thank you to all who have contributed. I am now giving the same to hubby who has come down with symptoms this morning and PS901E will report back. I have also administered Echinacea, Vitamin C and Manuka honey 20 throughout and hubby is having these too.
