Rumer Willis gave followers some real advise for dealing with health “struggles,” as the actress understands personally how difficult life can be when your child is unwell.
In an Instagram video posted on Sunday, Jan. 28, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ eldest daughter talked up about the health challenges she and her daughter Louetta have had to deal with in recent weeks, with baby Lou coughing in the background.
“This year has already been a bit of a doozy health wise, Lou and I have struggled through two viruses 🦠 just in this month,” she said in the post’s caption. “And what I realize the universe was telling me was to slow down and focus on nourishing my immune system and my body.”
“Remembering to do that is not always easy,” she said, “so finding ways that I can squeak it in with even the smallest [amount] of time is what I look for.”
The 35-year-old didn’t go into great detail about her or her daughter’s experiences fighting off not one, but two viruses—one of which she described as a “really bad flu”—but she did explain how difficult it was to care for an under-the-weather child while also being sick, and she went on to share how she recovered from the illnesses in the hopes that her strategy could help other new mothers.
“I have been using [Cymbiotika’s] lipospheric vitamins for a while,” she said. She added, “They are so easy to take and I can bring them in my purse or diaper bag so even if I forget in the morning I can take it on the go.”
“Another big thing as a new mom my adrenals can get taxed very quickly from breastfeeding and running around chasing after Lou all day, plus I have always had high anxiety and stress,” Rumer went on to say. “So I recently started taking [an] adrenal tonic to help keep me nourished.”
“The elderberry I use everyday for immune system maintenance and the activated charcoal is great for bloating, upset stomach and detox,” she had previously stated, with a crucial caveat: “(just check with your Dr or Midwife before taking if you are still breastfeeding).”
Rumer also stated that she takes Vitamin C and Glutathione tablets “every day,” but was unable to incorporate them in the film since her “family hijacked my stash over the holidays.”
Here’s praying Rumer and baby Lou get healthy soon!
