This post is brought to you by DiaResQ and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
Before I had kids, I would talk to my mom about what she thought the worst thing was about being a parent. Her response was and still is, “when your kids are sick.” Now that I am a mom I totally agree with this statement. As parents it is so hard to see our kids sick and feeling under the weather. I always feel helpless and just want to know how to help my sick kiddos get better fast. Part of the problem, even with older kids, is that they cannot really explain what hurts or how their body feels. So, as parents we just have to do what our heart and gut says to do.
How to Deal with Diarrhea in Children
I don’t know about you but I feel like we are a family of gut bugs, meaning when we get REALLY sick it is usually in our gut. Guys, that is not fun for adults and it is even worse when you are the parent of the child who is dealing with those yucky tummy issues. Hello, clean-up aisle 2! Over the years we have tried a lot of remedies for that dreaded tummy issue that no one likes to talk about, diarrhea. Recently, I was introduced to DiaResQ® and from now on this will always have a place in our medicine cabinet and I will make sure other parents add it to their remedies list as well.
Often we think of diarrhea as an annoying and embarrassing inconvenience, but for many parents around the globe, it can be a matter of life or death. Parents, did you know that diarrhea is the 2nd leading cause of death in children under 5 globally? That rank is really surprising to me. This is a serious condition that parents must be prepared for.
What Is DiaResQ®?
DiaResQ® is a natural approach to diarrhea that relieves diarrhea fast. Exactly what everyone wants! Many diarrhea relief products work by interfering with your body’s natural immune response – some work by slowing down the muscles in your gut while others make it harder for waste to flow through your gut. Delaying this process and keeping that unwanted something in your body longer can also delay recovery.
Diarrhea is the body’s natural immune response to try and remove an invading microorganism, and most other products work by slowing that response (and trapping that organism in your body). DiaResQ is different – it works with your body to address the underlying issue fast. DiaResQ has been clinically demonstrated to resolve most cases of diarrhea on day 1 of use.
I don’t know about you but some of the other diarrhea relief products that I have tried in the past make me feel terrible even if the diarrhea stops. That being said, I always felt like I did not want my kids to feel that way when treating them for diarrhea. This is a diarrhea relief product that every parent should keep on hand in case of emergency that will allow the body to recover more naturally and faster.
DiaResQ® is Easy To Take
Kids are not the best medicine takers but DiaResQ is a great alternative. There are no scary pills or tablets to have to worry about. DiaResQ is a kid-friendly, vanilla flavored powder that comes in small, nonperishable packets and easily mixes with water. Simply add water, shake and drink! So easy!! DiaResQ is a food made from safe, naturally-derived ingredients, mom approved! Being that it is so easy to take, means your kids will start feeling better faster and not get so dehydrated. My kids are very picky with textures and flavors but they have both agreed that the DiaResQ mix is easy to handle and drink.
DiaResQ is safe for adults and children as young as one year of age. This means it is a great product to have on hand for the adults in the home as well. It is quite unusual for an over the counter product to be safe for both adults and children. DiaResQ is available at CVS and Amazon so pick some up today.
As we start packing for our big family vacation you better believe that these easy to take along packets will be coming along with us. No one wants to have a ruined vacation due to some upset tummies. In fact, did you know that up to 70% of travelers will experience diarrhea while traveling? Ugh! Not fun!! DiaResQ is a must-have that we will continue to use as a family.
