What do you do when you want to maintain a non-toxic home, but your children eventually do succumb to the germs going around and get sick? The OTC (over the counter) medicines at the pharmacy are all laden with artificial dyes and synthetic flavoring, or they are labeled as “natural” and taste like hell in a bottle?
This has been a dilemma in my own non-toxic home, especially with one kid who is lured by anything that is bright blue. Why on earth does medicine need to be blue? Why does something that is supposed to make children feel better contain artificial dye? Besides that fact that many researchers (and parents) believe that food dyes are responsible for making children hyperactive, they are often made from petroleum. Yes, that petroleum. It’s hard to believe, but common medicines and supplements also often contain other potentially harmful ingredients, such as titanium dioxide, sodium benzoate and artificial sugars.
Doesn’t it seem a little counterintuitive, and a little ridiculous, that there is such a lack of healthy medicines in the marketplace?
New Healthy Medicine Options for Your Non-Toxic Home
Thankfully, a few months ago I found a new line of Certified Organic and Non-GMO project verified medicines for both adults and children from Genexa Health, and now I’m working with them to let you know that there is an alternative for folks who are tired of synthetic medicines. Genexa Health is the world’s first and only USDA certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified homeopathic over-the-counter medicines. That means it is free from nasty fillers and toxins, no growth hormones, no pesticides, and it contains healthier, purer ingredients. They are vegan and gluten-free too! It’s the first terrific option for a non-toxic home like mine.
David Johnson and Max Spielberg are two dads who felt the same way about the lack of great options for medicines on store shelves. So they put together a team of highly experienced chemists, pharmacists, formulators, and medical professionals who all wanted to make medicine healthier – and Genexa Health was born.
The line includes medicines for colds, allergy, muscle/joint pain, and flu, plus remedies for sleep issues, jet-lag, leg cramps, and stress relief. In a household where my husband and kids are all very sensitive to seasonal allergens, the Allergy-D medicine has become a staple. My youngest has had a rough few months with a postnasal drip and two Genexa Allergy-D twice a day were all he needed. No antibiotics. No inhalers or nebulizers. No drowsy antihistamines. Just this little organic, GMO-free homeopathic chewable medicine is all it took. By the way, all of their medicines are chewable, so I can carry them with me in case of emergency because there are no spoons or water needed.
