I have posted this link from Upworthy on Facebook about a school building in Japan that is designed in a circle that allows kindergarten children to move. (Some of you may have viewed it already.) I think it is a great idea. Children are moving. They are moving and doing things at their own pace, in the modes of learning that they learn best in, and being drawn to what interests them. It is an environment that is fitting to them, and not the other way around, that the child is needing to fit the environment.
To me, the boy in the photo is saying: Look at me. Look at what I can do. This is me! Isn’t it great!?
I liked how this school is set up. It is allowing the child to be who they are. That is what a healing with homeopathy does for a child, and for an adult, allowing them to be who they are, without whatever is hindering them or getting in their way of being who they are. The hindrances could be fears, physical symptoms – such as digestive issues, respiratory issues, skin eruptions, allergies, asthma, chronic ear infections, headaches – behavioral issues, specific sensitivities, terrifying nightmares, difficulty sleeping, angry feelings and outbursts, withdrawn behaviors, difficulty focusing, and more.
When these hindrances are quieted down, the child can be, as a woman said to me recently, “a regular child”. They can move, they can be who they are.

Over the past week, several people have mentioned to me that they, or their child, are suffering either with chronic ear infections, chronic sinusitis, or allergies. Antibiotics has been the form of treatment that most of them have been using, and actually, many courses of antibiotics have been prescribed, lasting 3 months, 8 months or longer. And the person is not feeling better. The symptoms may have subsided, for a time, but they have returned. There has been no healing.
I believe that people want to feel better, and parents want their child to feel better. When someone has gone through several courses of antibiotics, and there has been no healing, it is time to look to homeopathy for a deep healing. Actually, I want to say, come to homeopathy, first.
Coming To Homeopathy
The homeopath will want to know how the person is experiencing what is bothering them – the discomfort, the pain, the discharges, the emotional state, the dreams, the fears, how what bothers them affects them, when it started, how often does it come up, what is the problem in having this and more. Through listening, observation, asking some questions, and talking to the parents if it is a child, information is gathered that is specific to this person. This gives the homeopath an understanding of how the ear infection, the sinusitis or the allergy is for this person.
The homeopathic remedy that is given fits this person, fits YOU (Like Cures Like), and is healing for YOU. It is not a homeopathic remedy for the ear infection, sinusitis, or allergy. It is not a one size fits all treatment, which is common in western medicine. It is a healing.
I am happy to talk more if you or a loved one is experiencing an ongoing ear infection, sinusitis or allergy. Either contact me here on the blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.
Recently a mom of a patient of mine wanted to know if there was anything written that she could find online or published that talks to children about homeopathy. I don’t know of anything that has been written. I thought this is wonderful idea, and I need to do it. I am writing this post to the child, or to the parents of the child, so that you can read it to your child.
The Homeopathic Remedy
You may or may not have taken many medications over the years. If you did they were pills. And perhaps you don’t want to take them anymore. The homeopathic remedy is in pellet form and they do look like pills, little white ones, but they aren’t the same as the pills that you have taken in the past.
The original form of the homeopathic remedy is liquid. When the homeopathic remedy is made at a homeopathic pharmacy, the vial or the small bottle is first filled with white sugar lactose pellets. The pellets come in different sizes and shapes. Then the liquid homeopathic remedy that is being used is poured into and onto these pellets. (I have seen this preparation at the Heiios Pharmacy in London.) The pellets absorb the liquid.
How To Take The Homeopathic Remedy
When you take the homeopathic remedy, the pellets are tipped into the lid of the vial, and then tipped into your mouth. We say let them dissolve, don’t chew them. What you are tasting as the pellets are dissolving in your mouth is the sweetness of the pellets. Remember the pellets are sugar lactose, that is what you are tasting. You don’t taste the homeopathic remedy because there is no taste to the homeopathic remedy. You may have a taste of alcohol. This is because the substance that the homeopathic remedy is made from has been diluted in water and alcohol. Alcohol is a preservative, letting the homeopathic remedy last for a long period of time.
If you don’t want to take the pellets and have them dissolve in your mouth, you can dissolve 3 – 4 pellets in 4 ounces of spring or filtered water in a glass. Stir. Then take a teaspoonful of the homeopathic remedy. That is one dose. When the homeopathic remedy is diluted, you are bringing the homeopathic remedy back to its original form – liquid.
You most likely will not be taking the homeopathic remedy every day like you do with the medication you were taking before. Your parents will have been given instructions on how and when to give you the homeopathic remedy.
What Happens When You See A Homeopath
When you have met with a homeopath, such as myself, the homeopath has listened to you, has observed you, wants to know what bothers you, and what that is like for you. You may have been asked about what kinds of things you like to do, or fears you have, or dreams you have, or even what types of foods you have a strong craving for (you love) or have an aversion to (you hate). From all of this the homeopath chooses a homeopathic remedy that fits you. For example. some other child could have come in to see the homeopath and also have difficulty breathing at times. This child would need a different homeopathic remedy than you, because really they are experiencing the difficulty of breathing differently from the way you are experiencing it. The homeopathic remedy given to you, fits you.
How You Will Feel From Taking The Homeopathic Remedy
The homeopathic remedy will not do anything to you, such as making you clear your throat, or making you drowsy or sleepy or kind of sluggish, or give you tics or movements that you can’t control or make it that you aren’t hungry. These kinds of things may have happened when you took medications, the pills that you had taken. The homeopathic remedy is matching you. It is helping you heal yourself.
Whatever brought you in to see the homeopath will be better. Such as breathing easier. Not getting so frightened at things. Sleeping better at night. Not having nightmares. Not having a persistent, ongoing cough. Not feeling so angry at times. Not having the urge to bite or to hit or to kick someone. Not having the itching rash on your body. You are just feeling better.
I hope this has helped to know more about homeopathy.
I will continue writing these blog posts addressing concerns that children may have. If you have a question please feel free to contact me through this blog or though my website www.homeopathytoheal.com And if you know of anyone who would like to have homeopathic treatment and not be taking “pills” anymore, please have them contact me.
Parents call me and say their child has ADHD, and can homeopathy help. The parents may have been told by the schools, or by their doctor that their child has ADHD. And often medication is proscribed. I start to wonder what is ADHD? There are a list of symptoms, but does that say what ADHD is? I think it is a label; a way in which to explain something that is going on with a child, but doesn’t really explain it, and more importantly often doesn’t help the child.
ADHD Is Not A Disease
Recently, I read an article written by Alex Pietrowski published in Waking Times. The article focuses on Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D., a neuroscientist, and his writings on how ADHD is not a disease but is treated as such. I found this article very interesting because it touched on my questioning of what is ADHD.
By saying that ADHD is a disease, medication is often given. This is what western medicine knows what to do when there is a disease. In addition to side effects from taking the medication, parents often find that the medication doesn’t really do much for their child. There is no change. There is no healing.
Please know that by saying that ADHD is not a disease, I am not saying that there is no suffering, nor am I lessening how a child feels and acts. It is just not to put everything into a one size fits all mentality when just the “symptoms” are treated, and not really seeing what is the root, underneath cause for the child.
Understanding The Child’s Behaviors and Responses
When I meet with the child for homeopathic care, I am seeing, hearing, observing, witnessing what is going on with the child. If the child has lack of control, I am seeing what this lack of control IS for this child. If a child is withdrawn, I am seeing what being withdrawn IS like for this child. If a child is having difficulty focusing and paying attention, I am seeing what this lack of focus IS for this child. If a child is having angry outbursts and oppositional behavior, I am seeing what these outbursts ARE for this child. And if a child is constantly moving around and finding it difficult to sit still for any length of time, I am seeing what this constant motion IS like for this child. With each child, I am seeing him for who he is, and for what he is experiencing. (These are just some of how and what a child may be experiencing.)
By understanding each child’s own unique behaviors and responses, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to the child. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the child’s own healing process, strengthening their immune system, and lessening and quieting down their behaviors and responses. The healing is at the root of where these behaviors and states are coming from. Homeopathy is helpful for the child. Homeopathy is healing for the child.
Healing With Homeopathy
I am happy to talk to anyone on how homeopathy can be helpful for their child. An adult may also be experiencing these kinds of behaviors and states, and it is bothering them. Homeopathy is healing for them too. Either contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com I have a 15+ minute complimentary Get Acquainted Phone Call.
