The development of Maty’s Healthy Products has a heart-warming and personal story of Maty Harrington, a child born with severe heart defects, and her devoted mother Carolyn.In 1996, Maty Harrington was born with severe heart defects and had heart surgery when she was just days old. Due to the severity of her defects, she was later sent to the Cleveland Clinic for two subsequent open heart surgeries before she was 5 years old. As a result of her surgeries, she developed many medical conditions that were not easily treated with conventional methods.So her mother Carolyn, an engineer by trade, set out on a journey of love and devotion to her daughter, to find alternative ways to heal Maty. When her four kids were tucked in bed every night, Carolyn spent countless hours researching natural ingredients and remedies that would help her daughter get healthy. It soon became her passion.She found that natural ingredients and remedies that grandmothers used for generations provided great immune support and contained many health benefits. She then enhanced these remedies with ingredients she found in her research. Maty got better and soon friends and family that also tried Carolyn’s natural remedies benefited too.A decade after Carolyn set out to help Maty get better; she chose to share her healthy products with the greater public. Maty’s Healthy Products debuted in 2008, and today it is in more than 10,000 retail stores across the U.S. Maty’s Healthy Products includes an all-natural cough syrup made with antioxidant rich buckwheat honey, and flavored caramel banana and the just released Maty’s All Natural Baby Chest Rub made with eucalyptus, lavender and chamomile.Today, Maty is a healthy and happy, thriving 14-year-old about to enter 9th grade. She would love to share their story with you, and allow you to sample some of the healthy products in the line, including All Natural Cough Syrup for both kids and adults, and the just released All Natural Baby Chest Rub.
My first question for this product was “Is it safe for kids under 3?” I’ve never seen cough medicine in the stores for kids under 5 (I heard that it was not safe to give them cough medicine at a young age…so I always gave my son honey for his cough…of course after I got the okay from his pediatrician). I was happy to hear that this product is safe and effective for kids 1+ (even adults can use it).
My daughter is almost 17 months old…and of course the cold hit her too. This Halloween was a nightmare – Mommy & kids all had runny noses, coughs…you know, that nasty head cold that seems to hit every winter…yup, that one! Kira was much better about taking the medicine. (She is my little angel, no fuss, no problems…yet…lol). A little later, I noticed she was doing much better. Again, thanks Maty! Your product is great!
I love that it’s all natural, so I don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals that may have side effects. I’ll be able to use these products this winter on both of my kids since they are both over the age of one.
