Homeopathy To Heal

Classical Homeopathy

Treating The Child With Homeopathy Is Treating The Family


I have a soft spot for children. I feel that homeopathy can help children immensely, whether for physical ailments or behavioral issues.  And when I see a child as a patient, I know that the family will be helped as well. The child is doing better, then the family is doing better. In a way, by treating the child, the whole family is also being treated.

Often, there is a child in the family that is having difficulties. So much of the parent’s and other family member’s time and energy are directed to this child. It could be to help the child with their physical complaint; to prepare a particular diet; to handle behavioral issues and responses; to monitor their environment; and/or to monitor the other family members behaviors and responses. This all takes away from the other children in the family, from the child involved because they are being handled almost with “kid gloves”, and from the parents themselves, as individuals, and as a couple. Everything, and everyone is focused on this child.

A Family Heals

With a healing, the child is doing better, and there doesn’t need to be so much focus on them.  There maybe another paper dolls familymember of the  family, in which attention can now be placed. This member may have been very quiet about their needs, been in the background because there was not enough resources, time, or energy  for them. They needed to not “rock the boat”, not “make waves”. Now, their needs can be met.  This member could be another child or one or both of the parents.  There is more – time, energy, space, love – for each member of the family.  A family heals.

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy does this so well – the healing of the child, and the healing of the family.  (The initial member of the family that is helped first could be any member, not just a child, and with their healing the family unit is also healing.)

In my homeopathic practice, I have seen children for various health concerns. Some of these concerns are: hyperactivity, difficulty sleeping, grouchiness, defiant responses, asthmatic symptoms, persistent coughs, bed wetting, fears, nightmares, nose bleeds, eczema, chronic stomach aches, and menstrual difficulties (teenage girls). With the child’s healing, the parents, and the whole family are doing better.

I am a classical homeopath. I attended The School of Homeopathy in Devon, England and the California Center for Homeopathic Education in San Diego, California. The latter program focused on the Sensation Method. In my practice, I see babies through older adults, for all kinds of health concerns, ranging from skin eruptions, asthma, women's issues, insomnia, sinus issues, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue and more. www.homeopathytoheal.com

  1. I have had people say homeopathy only works as a placebo effect and I point to the success I have had with treating my son as proif against that. Currently, he has eczema on his back that started as a reaction to a brand of diapers and I haven’t been able to get it to go away fully. Any suggestions? He also has cradle cap that I cannot get to go away and is probabky fungal.

    • Glad to hear that you have used homeopathy and have helped your son with it. Homeopathy treats the person. It would be finding out more about your son and how this is for him. The eczema and cradle cap are showing his sensitivities. I would suggest seeing a homeopath for him. I do see patients via Skype, if that is something you are interested in. And, you don’t want to use any steriod creams. They are very suppressive. Calendula ointment might give him some relief, but a healing would come more from looking at the whole case and giving a homeopathic remedy that fits him. It is a remedy for him, not for his eczema. This would be a wonderful time to do homeopathy for him – strengthening and putting him in a more healthy state. If I can be of more help, please let me know. Best wishes, Pam

  2. I definitely wouldn’t do a steroid cream for exactly that reason. I have had a calendula cream help me in the past but am out of it now. I tried a remedy for his cradle cap a long time ago but it must not have been the right one. For now I have to treat on my own because we cannot afford a consultation.

    • You could continue with the calendula cream, for relief of the itching. The thinking is not, a remedy for the cradle cap or the eczema, it is a remedy for your son. Does the eczema and cradle cap bother him? And it would be finding out more about him – . That is what the homeopath would do. And it would be an inner healing, affecting the all of him, including the eczema and cradle cap. I looked at your site, he is adorable. I am not a big advocate of people treating themselves homeopathically. Perhaps, yes for first aid, but not for chronic issues. Wishing you the best. If there is more that I can do, please let me know.

  3. It is effecting his hair growth and when it gets bad/thick it does bother him. It does seem easier to self treat for first aid things over chronic issues. The accute problems have straightforward sources where the chronic conditions are much more complex. I do think he has something underlying going on with multiple signs like the cradle cap and eczema and poor sleep. I realized the eczema came back around when I ran out of coconut oil for his lotion so I will start that again. My background is in holistic nutrition and it looks like more omegas could help a bit.

  4. The eczema, cradle cap and poor sleep are the guideposts of a disturbance, or underlying cause. That is where you want the healing to happen, at the cause, and then the symptoms will lessen. That is why it isn’t a remedy for eczema. From what you write, I think you understand that. The coconut oil is relieving, but not healing. Probably, just like the calendula is doing. How old is he? Good nutrition is always good. Plant a seed to do homeopathy sometime for him. All the best.
