When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.
Why Is It A Good Time?
It is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.
It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)
It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.
It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.
It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.
What Do Parents Call About?
These are some of the health concerns that parents have called me about that their child is experiencing (and adults experience these types of health concerns too):
- ear aches and ear infections – being on course after course of antibiotics
- digestive issues, such as acid re flux, 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
- difficultly focusing on school work
- behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
- chronic coughs
- menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
- reactions to vaccinations
- sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
- just not feeling well
Seeing The Individual Child
Homeopathy is a form of medicine that addresses the person as a whole being and as an individual. It is finding out what bothers the person, and how they experience what bothers them – uniquely to them.
For example, the child may have asthma. After hearing how the child experiences the asthma and how it affects them, along with hearing about the child’s emotional life, their fears, their dreams, what they like to do, and their health history, the homeopathic practitioner gives a homeopathic remedy that fits this child. Another child who also experiences asthma, would most likely need a different homeopathic remedy, a homeopathic remedy that fits them.
Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the child, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits the child. This applies to a child who experiences behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.
