Get Better the All Natural Way

If you're a regular you know that I try and use all natural products as much as I can. I know I've mentioned before that I grew up originally in the Caribbean before moving to New York. Now the reason I mention that is because while growing up my parents didn't go to the store to buy over the counter medications when we were sick. They did it the old fashioned way and the ways that their grandparents did it. There were lots of different herbs and leaves that they boiled and gave us to drink or crushed together into a paste and rubbed on our backs, chest, neck etc., and they worked or seemed to work out very well for us. When I had my own kids I decided that I was going to use as little chemicals as I could for my own kids so when Maty's Healthy Products contacted us about taking a look at their products I had to check them out before I said yes and since I'm doing this post, you know that I loved what I saw.

First let me say that this couldn't have come at a much better time. My oldest son Kyle just happened to be sick when this arrived and I got 2 of each of the product you see above so I got to put them in each medicine cabinet which was great. Now as I was saying, Kyle just happened to come down with a cold and when one child gets sick (he blames it on Mikael) the entire household almost always gets sick. I hate seeing my kids sick because almost always once again, they lay around the house, mostly in the family room, taking up all the space on the couch and just looking as if they're going to die.

Now why do we love Maty's Healthy Products you ask? Well first of all, would you put something on your skin that you won't put into your mouth? I grew up with Vicks Vapor Rub as I'm sure most of you reading has, and whenever our kids get sick it's usually one of the first thing that you would run to get. Well I know that you're going to love Maty's All Natural Petroleum Free Vapor Rub. Just take a look at the ingredients: Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Candelilla Wax, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Essential Oils of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Pine, Wintergreen, and Cedar Leaf. Eucalyptus and peppermint have always been a popular cough and congestion remedy for decades.

Now we all want our kids to have a good night sleep, but when they're sick that's almost always impossible. Did you know that chamomile tea is a natural way to promote a good night's sleep. Did you also know nutmeg has a sedative and calming effect? Well Maty's Cough Syrup Nighttime for Children has buckwheat honey and a bit of chamomile tea and nutmeg to help your child relax so they get a restful night's sleep when they need it most. I think that Kyle can swear that it did help him and he said it tastes pretty good too.

Their organic cough syrup is a USDA certified organic honey blend packed with ten powerful immune-boosting ingredients. Which 10? Let me share that with you.

  • Honey - Provides healthful antixoidants
  • Cinnamon - Promotes healthy breathing
  • Zinz - Provides immune support
  • Apple Cider Vinegar - promotes healthy mucous flow
  • Cayenne Pepper - aids circulation
  • Sea Salt - naturally neutralizes toxins the body
  • Lemon Peel, Clove and Marjoram - natural antioxidants

This is recommended for ages 1 and older since it contains honey and is doctor recommended. Kyle took this during the day, you take 1-2 teaspoons as needed and said that it helped his throat feel better. He also said that it "tasted like candy and not a cough syrup". If you have kids who HATE taking medicine I can guarantee that they are going to love taking this.

While we didn't need to take Acid Indigestion Relief it's good to know that if we ever need to, we have an all natural way to do so. What I found out while reading the material on this product was that heartburn is usually caused by not enough acid in the stomach. Who knew? I always thought it was because there was too much. Did you also know that by adding more acid to your digestion you can take away that burning feeling?

Maty's All Natural Acid Indigestion Relief Syrup is a combination of safe ingredients like apple cider vinegar and turmeric that promotes healthy acid levels in your digestive tract. They also add ginger and cloves to improve digestion while enhancing the body’s natural healing power.

Maty's All Natural products contains no gluten, soy, wheat, alcohol, dairy or corn. They also have no artificial preservatives, color additives or sweeteners. You can get healthy the all natural way with Maty's products. It's why they now hold a place in MY medicine cabinet and will for years to come!

Let's discuss: How do you take care of your loved ones when they are sick?
