Homeopathy for Babies & Children
When seeking an alternative remedy for your child, you want something that is extremely safe to use, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated. That would be homeopathy!
A child’s vital force is strong. That is why you often see a child get sick suddenly, run a high fever, and then get better suddenly. There is less compensation, less intellectualizing, and a shorter history as compared with adults. I enjoy working with children and have a soft spot for them—and by helping the child, the family is also helped.
“My child was having hurdles to overcome in school – difficulty focusing. I was against putting him on medication. I turned to homeopathy. So far, I have seen very positive results and a good start towards the right path.” — Sonia C. Chula Vista, CA
Children respond well to homeopathy, and often very quickly. In my homeopathic practice, I have seen children with the following issues:
- ear aches and ear infections – getting back on course after a round of antibiotics
- digestive issues, such as acid reflux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
- skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
- continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
- breathing difficulties, such as asthma
- difficulty focusing on school work
- behavioral issues—angry outbursts, tantrums, withdrawing
- chronic coughs and colds
- menstrual issues in young girls—painful cramps; being very emotional and weepy
- reactions to vaccinations
- sleep issues such as insomnia, nightmares
- autism spectrum
- childhood diseases
- just not feeling well
Sinus Issues, Earaches, and Coughs
One young male patient of mine came in for a cough. His mother was very concerned about it. When I asked the boy what bothered him, he said that his younger sister was bossing him, and he didn’t like it. He felt small. He responded well to the homeopathic remedy. As he felt better about himself in relation to his sister and to others, his cough subsided.
Another boy came to see me because of several episodes of nasal congestion, earaches and a slight fever. He had been on several courses of antibiotics. He would get better for four to six weeks, but then his symptoms would recur. After using the homeopathic remedy, he didn’t need another course of antibiotics. And when he became sick six months later, a dose of the homeopathic remedy that had helped him before helped him now.
Inability to Concentrate
Another of my young patients found it difficult to focus on his school work while in school. Once home, his mother needed to help him with his homework. She was concerned that he was lagging behind. Within three weeks after taking the homeopathic remedy that was a fit for him, his mother reported that he was doing his homework almost completely on his own and was able to focus during the school day. She also reported that his teachers noticed a big change in him.
