I see many children in my homeopathic practice – babies through teenagers.
Children respond well to homeopathy. Adults do too.
To start using homeopathy when someone is young, when they are a child, is wonderful. It is side stepping possibly many years of medications and treatments that can be very invasive. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)
Homeopathy simulates the person’s innate healing ability. Children have a wonderful immune system. They have a strong vital force/vitality, and respond well to homeopathy.
These are some of the health issues that children have come to homeopathy for:
- anxiety – depression
- skin eruptions – warts (you have read a recent post on this), eczema, acne
- delayed talking
- digestive issues – stomach aches
- fears – ranging from a scary monster in their room to fear of losing a loved one
- difficulty sleeping
- injuries – falls, traumas, bites, emotional or physical abuse, reactions from toxic substances in our environment, vaccines
- ear infections, colds, fevers, coughs, sore throats
- emotional and behavioral issues
- certain actions and behaviors – such as running away, constantly moving, fidgeting, biting, hitting
- difficulty focusing
- bed wetting
- respiratory issues, asthma
- menstrual issues
Seeing A Homeopath
My job as a homeopath is to find out about the child, the totality of them. I do this through observation, listening to both the parents and the child, finding out about the child’s dreams, finding out what bothers them, asking about their likes and dislikes, what has changed and more. With babies, who may not be talking yet, observation plays a lot into finding out about the child.
With all of this, I suggest a homeopathic remedy that is similar to the totality of what the child is experiencing in their symptoms. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the child’s healing process. They start to feel better. A healing starts.
Sometimes what bothers the child is not what the parents always think is bothering the child. Several years ago, I saw a boy who had a cough. The cough bothered his mother greatly. What bothered the boy was that his younger sister bossed him around all the time. “She was the boss of me”, he said. This, plus the cough and more, led me to the homeopathic remedy that helped him.
From this experience, I learned that what may bother the parent isn’t necessarily what bothers the child. Together, the information from the parent and the child, help to make the whole picture, the totality of the child.
