Stress in kids and teens

Stress does not only affect adults. Infants, toddlers and teens can be equally affected by stress, and its effects can impact overall health and day-to-day activities. Recent studies have revealed that men and women react differently to stress.

Children undergo rapid stages of growth both in body and brain. Behavioural, psychological and social growth can have an impact on stress in infants, toddlers, young children and teenagers. These developmental stages are marked by different points of growth and hormones associated with stress. Because stress is an inevitable occurrence for children and adults it is important to think about ways to modulate stress.

Stress and Cortisol in Kids and Teens Botanical Options for Support examines the best ways to minimise the effects of stress in children and the various types of botanical medicines that can be used in children and teens to help combat stress.

Medicinal history of Aloe Vera

Medicinal-history-of-Aloe-VeraMany believe that a Sumerian clay tablet, found in the city of Nippur, written around 2200BC, was the first document to include Aloe Vera among plants with great healing power.

Two of the oldest and most profound medical documents known to civilisation, the Ebers Papyrus and the Edwin Smith Papyrus (ca. 1552BC) recorded ancient Egyptian medical men using Aloe Vera. The Edwin Smith Papyrus is the oldest medical treatment in existence. The first detailed discussion of Aloe’s medicinal value is probably that which is found in the Papyrus Ebers. This document gives 12 formulae for mixing Aloe with other agents to treat both internal and external human disorders. The Ebers Papyrus explores a broad range of medical science and includes chapters on the pulse and cardiovascular system, dermatology, dentistry, gynaecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, tumours, burns, fractures, intestinal disorders and much more.
