With the start of new school year, I wanted to repost this blog. Even though I am talking about children in this blog, homeopathy is wonderful for all ages.
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, or older. 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 parents have called me about:
- ear aches and ear infections – the child may have been on several courses of antibiotic.
- 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
A SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF HOMEOPATHY – LIKE CURES LIKE
When someone has a cold or an allergy, their nose may be continually runny. Their eyes are tearing, burning, and stinging. They want to rub their eyes to ease the discomfort. The homeopathic remedy Allium cepa, made from the red onion, can be very helpful for someone who is experiencing these types of symptoms, whether it is a cold or allergies.
Allium cepa is helpful because it is similar to what the person is experiencing. (LIKE CURES LIKE) When you think about what happens when you cut an onion, your eyes tear, burn and sting. And your nose runs. The crying isn’t like when you are sad, which is just tearing, but here, you want to rub and wipe your eyes.
Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the person, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits this person. This applies to someone who is experiencing behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.
It is always good to check with your physician. Homeopathy can be used alongside western medicine.
