If you want to find ways to save on medical fees, I have great news.
Let’s talk about two recent incidents that happened to J and K respectively.
The first incident happened to J.
One night after the recent Chinese New Year, after consuming too much deep-fried goodies, J had a slight fever.
I wanted to see how it went first before taking J to see a doctor.
The next morning, she was fine and dandy. As active as ever.
No medical attention required.
Second incident happened to K. He too had slight fever last week. It was a more stubborn one. The fever came on and off for 3-4 days. So K needed more time to fight off the viruses.
As with the case with J, K did not get medical attention too. I let his body fight with the viruses. I wanted him to self-heal.
K looked normal and he didn’t show any sign of lethargy even though he had fever.
We were not sure if K was fit to go but we went ahead anyway. I brought him to our monthly hiking trip despite his “illness.” It was hot that day and he complained the trek was too long. Albeit the complaints, he completed the trekking.
Surprisingly, he was fully recovered from mild fever the following day – after almost a week of battle.
In both cases, J and K used their self-healing capabilities to recover.
No doctors. No drugs. We paid nothing for medical bills.
I can’t really remember the last time J and K went to see a doctor. It was quite some time already. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, here’s my point:
Spending zero money on health is secondary. What is more important is to help the kids to learn about good dietary habits that eventually lead to a healthy body – a body that won’t get sick easily or heals by itself when sick.
I attribute the increased self-healing powers to our changed diet more than a year ago. J and K are already accustomed to the new, healthy diet and they enjoy it very much now.
I can tell you it has got nothing to do with fad diets or food supplements.
Anyway I explain at length our family diet in my new book “The Uncensored Guide to Parenting.”
I even list down the foods that we have regularly.
By they way, I have decided to give an early bird discount.
To receive an early bird discount and to get notified when the book is ready, join the notification list.
P.S. Health is one of the best gifts we can give to our children. Now J and K are slowly picking up and learning to differentiate what is healthy food and what is not.
The latest being pomegranate. After introducing it to them (I even have problems pronouncing at first myself), they love it very much. They even ask for it.
Here’s a tip for you: pomegranate is a wonderful fruit – full of natural goodness. Try it and share it with your child.
