Chinese Herbs for Children and Adolescents – Lessons Learned During COVID at Longevity Mountain Herbs

According to a trusted survey, the post-vaccine experience in USA-based kids and teens has taken a toll on their physical health. While 60.1% experienced fatigue, 24.1% felt muscle pain, 10.1% reported having fever, and 8% of them had diarrhea, (Source: Business Insider ) with 1594 deaths overall (Source: CDC). The pandemic also had an impact on children’s learning processes and other healthcare facilities since the virus took the front seat. Nevertheless, stress-related and emotional problems are prevalent in teens, which impact other areas of their lives.

Since the pandemic implied house-arrest of people, including children, the outdoor activities came to a standstill. After the playground was replaced with gadgets, kids became more lazy and experienced sleep and concentration issues. Lack of exercise was another cause that made teens lose their self-esteem. Gun violence involving children (0-18 yrs.) resulted in 1438 deaths in the US (JAMA, CDC). Children have been greatly affected and need our attention on a very personal level.  

Longevity Mountain Herbs (LMH), a platform best known for its Chinese herbal formulas, started seeing increased health requests for young children with ADD/ADHD formulas: Spirit Comfort, Flu Comfort for extreme fever, Body Force for immunity, Nose/Allergy Comfort for nasal congestion, Breathe Comfort for lung congestion and asthma complaints, and Heart Comfort for anxiety and heart/circulation problems.

Parents have also learned from their children to keep a home store in order to prevent such occurrences and to use them for their own purposes as well.
