Parents can sign up on the website for a free e-subscription to these Natural Moms tip sheets, with content contributed by pediatrician Robert “Dr. Bob” Sears, MD, co-author of the Sears Parenting Library and other best-selling titles for parents. In the months ahead, the Bionorica website will offer a “Natural Moms Corner” with webinars featuring well-known natural health practitioners, additional tip sheets, and other resources and information on topics related to family health and wellness.

“More and more people are looking for safe, gentle, all-natural products, especially for their kids,” said Dr. Sears. “Yet, many mainstream physicians don’t know enough about natural remedies to recommend them to their patients. Parents and doctors should be assured that there are high-quality, clinically-proven, plant-based remedies now available in the U.S. This tip sheet will guide parents on how to select them.”

It can be hard to tell which products to trust, how to decipher labels and evaluate various product claims, and how to know if a product is appropriate for children. In view of this, Dr. Sears teamed up with Bionorica to develop insightful tips for selecting natural health products for children. Here’s a sampling:

  • Look for products made to pharmaceutical grade standards, such as those developed by companies in Europe, where clinically proven plant-based remedies have been used successfully for many decades.
  • Check out the manufacturer. Go to their website and search for additional information about the company and the product. Also “Google” the company and its products to see if there are any reports of side effects or product recalls.
  • Read the ingredients. Watch for potentially harmful substances, such as stimulants, codeine, narcotics, steroids, ephedra or pseudoephedrine.

The complete “Selecting Safe and Effective Natural Remedies for Children” tip sheet and other parent tip sheets can be found at www.bionoricausa.com.
