See The Individual, Not The Label Of ADD/ADHD

We are all individuals. ADD/ADHD is a name, a label, to a long list of symptoms, behaviors and responses. When a child, and/or an adult, is not fitting in to the environment of school, of work, of life even, then very often medication is recommended by the person’s physician, and/or by the school.

Some Children I Have Seen In My Practice

Over the years, I have seen many children who have had the label of ADD/ADHD put on       sad smiley facethem. There may have been a commonality in that they were not doing their work at school, having difficulty focusing and attending, and were easily distracted. Some of these children were proscribed medication – some took it and some did not. I believe that all of the parents of these children were open and wanting other ways of helping their child than using medication.

As I met with the child and their parents, I heard and observed more than that the child was distracted. I believe that each child was suffering in their own way. Below is a short description of some of the children I have seen in my practice.

  • One girl was constantly moving around my office, crawling on the floor, hiding behind the chairs, and going under the desk. As she was moving around and changing her position in the room, she was talking to me.
  • One boy sat still in his chair. At times, while he sat in the chair, he would move his leg. He said if someone did something to him, he automatically (and he used this word automatically) started figuring out how to take revenge on this person. Sweet revenge, he said, and smiled somewhat. He would plan what he would do to this person. He experienced very frightening dreams of dark images, which he said came right up to his face. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, he said that the automatic feeling of needing to take revenge on someone was gone; he didn’t feel it anymore.
  • One boy had the urge to just run away from where he was. He felt very poorly about himself. At school, it was difficult to focus on what needed to be done in terms of his schoolwork. He was very concerned on how he said things, because it might be hurtful to someone.
  • When I first met this boy at the  door, he wanted to hide behind his mom. He also didn’t want to be videotaped. He felt embarrassed. During the school day, he was not focusing on his schoolwork. Once home, his mother needed to help him with his homework,  going over the material he had learned during the day. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, both his mother and his teacher noticed that he was more focused on his work. And his mother said that he seemed calmer.
  • Another boy had angry outbursts and tantrums at home, at school, and in public areas.

There is more to each of these children than what I have written here. You can see how different each of these children are. Each was given a different homeopathic remedy; a homeopathic remedy that fit them.

Healing With Homeopathy

children playing by beachWith the healing with homeopathy, the child becomes more of who they are. The child is not changed. They become who they are fully, being curious and creative children. With the healing  process, the child no longer experiences the  inner interferences that has made it difficult for them  to interact in their environment, the world around them, and with their family and friends.

Although, I have written mostly about children in this post, all of this applies to teenagers and adults as well, who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD or are taking medication. We are all individuals, and our treatment needs to fit us, not a label.


I would be happy to talk to you further about yourself or a loved one who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

We Each Have Our Own Sensitivity


We all have our own sensitivity. Why does something bother one person, but the very same thing doesn’t bother another person?  I often give the example of a skin eruption on someone’s hand. For one person, it bothers them so much to the point that they will seek out any and all kinds of treatment to help. Another person, hardly notices it, or if they do, it doesn’t bother them. They live with it. One person is bothered by it, the other is not. One is sensitive about it, the other is not.

Different Sensitivities

Some sensitivities that people may experience are:                                                                                                                          dandalion

  • to noise, to crowds, to fabrics, to foods, to temperatures, to smells, to certain types of people, to violence, to blood, to over stimulation, to under stimulation, to pain, to pressure, to situations, to traveling, to dirt, to germs, and more.

Parts of the body or the functioning of parts of the body that may be more sensitive in someone are:

  • the stomach – digestive issues, the head – migraines, frequent colds, sore throats, respiratory issues, menstrual issues, hormonal issues – in both women and men, skin eruptions, anxiousness, depression/melancholy, fears and phobias, muscular aches and pains, sleep issues, nightmares, eating issues, and more.

Hearing The Sensitivity – A Case of A Boy

The sensitivity is what I hear when someone comes to see me for homeopathy. I hear what bothers the person. I hear how they experience their sensitivity. I hear how they live with the sensitivity, either compensating, making it go away, accepting it, or avoiding it. I hear how the sensitivity affects their life.

I want to tell you about a boy whose parents brought him in for homeopathic care. He was 20 months old at the time. The boy was experiencing nasal congestion, fevers, and possible ear infections, in which several courses of antibiotics had been given. The antibiotics had helped for four weeks, then the congestion, the fevers, the discomfort in the ear returned. He went through this cycle for several months.

As I spoke to the parents and observed the boy, I saw that he had a sensitivity to noise and sounds. His mother told me that when a sound was loud, or if he heard a far off sound, such as an airplane, actually hearing it before she did, he would run to her. She thought that the sounds were scary or frightening to him. He was not saying how he experienced the sounds through words, but showing through his behaviors, reactions, and responses to the sounds. There was a sensitivity to sound. I wondered if the sounds felt uncomfortable or painful to him in some way. Whatever it was, the sounds and noises were too much for him. I really didn’t know how the sounds specifically affected him, but they bothered him greatly, in some way.

boy with truck 2 cartoonThis sensitivity to sound was also expressed as he played. He would make the sounds of trucks, imitating the noises that trucks make as they move, back up, carry things, and push materials. To me, this also showed how sensitive he was to sound. He heard things well, and could reproduce the sounds that he heard.

He has done well with the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what he was experiencing. He hasn’t needed to have any more antibiotics. He has had a few fevers and nasal congestion, but has been able to move through them without any lingering problems. I would be curious to know how his sensitivity to sound and noises are. I would think that he may have less of a sensitivity to them.

Healing With Homeopathy

The sensitivity to sounds is not why the boy’s parents brought him in for homeopathic care. But this sensitivity was very characteristic of him as an individual person, and very much part of him. Homeopathy looks at, and focuses on the whole person. We all of our own sensitivity, and sensitive areas in our body. This is where we may experience symptoms, discomfort, or flare ups when we are experience situations that are stressful physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. With homeopathic care, the sensitivity becomes less and quiets down.

Children Benefit So Well From Homeopathic Care

This post is a continuation of the blog post on “what is bothering your child“. I want to tell you a bit more on how a child shows and talks about what bothers them. And then how they were better. There is more to each of these children’s cases than I have written here.

What Children Show And Say What Bothers Them

  • One little girl had difficulty staying still. Actually while she was in my consultation room, she was all over the room, sitting behind me, sitting under the desk, moving all around the room, crawling almost. This said a lot about her.
  • One girl had difficulty sleeping and had nightmares. These nightmares would keep her awake at night, or woke her up early in the morning. She would talk about.the nightmares, giving a lot of detail. She didn’t feel rested during the day.
  • One boy had asthmatic and breathing difficulties. He talked about lining up his toys very precisely and placed in specific places on a table next to his bed.
  • One girl had frequent stomach aches.
  • One little boy had been on several courses of antibiotics for ear infections and low grade fevers. He was very sensitive to noise/sounds – loud noises were frightening to him, and he was wonderful at imitating noises while he played.
  • One little boy, was labelled as “being defiant and having oppositional behavior”. (I really don’t like labels.) This type of behavior was at home and in school. He also ground his teeth a lot.
  • One little boy had eczema on his face that was so itchy.
  • One teenage boy was quite anxious, almost having anxiety attacks. He would think that people were looking at him all the time. He liked to come and talk to me. I think it was a place where someone heard him.
  • One teenage boy had persistent nose bleeds.
  • One teenage girl had difficulty sleeping  – falling asleep and staying asleep. This was worse during her examination times at school.
  • One boy would hear noises at night and would get up and ask his mother, are there burglars in the house?

And How They Benefited From Homeopathic Care

Each child did well. Each child was given the homeopathic remedy that fit them, and fit what was bothering them. The homeopathic remedy stimulated their own healing process.

The child who had difficulty sleeping, was sleeping better and having less or no nightmares. The child who was moving around in my office, was able to stay more focused on activities, and not be so distracted at the times that she needed to be focused. The child who had breathing children's hands and sundifficulties, did not have the attacks as often. The child who had stomach aches, experienced them less. There was no longer a need for antibiotics for the child that had the low grade fevers and congestion. The eczema cleared up on the child’s face, and he no longer experienced itching. The pre-teen that felt anxious a lot, was able to be in situations and feel more at ease with the situation and himself. The nosebleeds subsided for the boy. The “oppositional” behavior in the boy, become less so, and his interactions with his family and people at school were easier. The boy who asked questions at night was able to go to bed, fall asleep, and feel safe. And the teen age girl, who is now a graduate school student, is able to go through the stressful exam times with more ease.

Healing With Homeopathy

How would it be if your child was feeling better with whatever was bothering them? They would be happier. They could be the child they are. And you would be feeling better too. The whole family would be feeling better.

There may be other health concerns that your child may be experiencing than what I have mentioned in this blog post. I would be happy to talk with you about your child.

When A Child Is Having Difficulty Sleeping – Homeopathy Heals

teddy-bear-567952_640A friend of mine who works with children, and adults, as a vision therapist, told me recently that a lot of the children have been saying to her that they don’t sleep well. This was curious to me. Sleep is so very important. It is the time that we reset ourselves – our bodies, our minds, our emotions, and our spirits. It is a time of healing. To not sleep well, to me, means there is something that is blocking that innate ability to just slow down, turn off, feel and be safe, and sleep. There is some uproar, some imbalance, some disturbance within the child that prevents them to get the rest that they need.

Is Your Child Having Difficulty Sleeping?                                                                   

How is your child’s sleep?

  • difficulty falling asleep
  • waking frequently
  • waking early and not able to go back to sleep
  • having nightmares – certain images come up
  • not wanting to sleep alone (this may not be a problem)
  • checking in with parents frequently during the night
  • light sleeper, when previously they were a not as sensitive to their environment
  • heavy sleeper – difficulty waking
  • changes in sleep habits and behaviors
  • self comforting behaviors
  • feeling anxious
  • feeling fearful
  • restlessness
  • emotional upsets – crying, tantrums, angry outbursts, stubbornness, sadness
  • a physical ailment that is keeping them from getting a good night’s sleep – chronic ear infections, stomachaches, headaches, eczema, allergies, asthma, coughs, colds, fevers
  • a change in the environment: a new sibling, a move, a parent being away for a length of time, a death, a divorce

Two Children

I want to tell you about two children I have seen over the years in my practice who had sleeping difficulties. The difficulty sleeping was part of what brought each child to homeopathy along with other concerns. The sleeping difficulty was a part of the whole picture of the child. By really seeing what was bothering the child, a homeopathic remedy was given that fit the child. It wasn’t a remedy for the sleeping difficulty, but a remedy for the child. Each was given a different homeopathic remedy. They both did well.

The first patient was a young girl who experienced a lot of nightmares at night. She also had difficulty falling asleep, and would wake up early. She wasn’t getting a full night’s sleep and didn’t feel rested during the day. This affected how she interacted with her family, and just how she was during the day. She was not always easy to be around. With the homeopathic remedy that was similar to her, she started to sleep better. The nightmares were much less, occurring rarely. She was easier to be around during the day. And when the sleeping became difficult again, that was a sign that she needed another dose of the remedy. I actually have not seen her for about year. I am thinking she is doing well.

The other patient was a young boy. He would go to bed at night, and during the first few hours, he would be up asking his mother when was his father coming home, if his father was away or working late. And if he heard any noises in the house, he would get up and ask his mother what are those noises? And maybe there is a burglar in the house? He would do this several times during the evening. With the homeopathic remedy that fit him, he no longer needed to check in with his mother when he went to bed at night. He was able to go to bed, fall asleep, and sleep through the night.

Healing With Homeopathy

I would be happy to talk with you on how homeopathy could be of help for your child, if they are experiencing a sleeping issue. Please know too, that if you as an adult having sleeping difficulties, homeopathy would be helpful for you too.

Being “A Regular Child” – Homeopathy Helps

happy child 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.

Homeopathy – Healing Children

Homeopathy is wonderful for children’s health care.  Whether the child is experiencing ongoing health issues or acute colds and stomachaches, homeopathy is very helpful. In the healing with homeopathy, the immune system of the child is strengthened, so the health issue is not occurring as much and finally lessens all together.

Some ongoing health concerns that children experience:

  • Chronic ear infections
  • Asthma
  • Eczema or other skin eruptions
  • Allergies
  • Behavioral issues
  • ADD/ADHD – see post on ADD/ADHD
  • Autism spectrum
  • Stomachaches
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty sleeping and nightmares
  • Fears
  • Coughs
  • Headaches
  • Recurring colds, sore throats
  • Childhood disease – measles, chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough, German measles.

I would like to tell you about a patient of mine who I have seen for several years. When he first came to me, he was eight years old. When Joe (not his real name) was playing baseball, he would experience the need to cough when he stopped running. Joe said, “It is weird to have so much mucus in my throat. Coughing gets more mucus. I stop coughing and the mucus goes away.” His mother had taken Joe to the doctor who had suggested using an inhaler for the cough. His mother did not want to do that. She had used homeopathy before, and wanted to see how homeopathy could help Joe.

Joe talked about feeling scared at night when he heard noises in the house. “There could be burglars. If I knew what it was, it wouldn’t be so scary. You can get taken. I would have to scream and kick around. The person doing that would not like it.” His mother said that during the evening, Joe would frequently get out of bed to ask her about the sounds, as well as asking when his father was coming home, if his father was away on a business trip. His mother would give an explanation, but Joe would be back again asking about the noises. His mother described Joe as needing a lot of reassurance, and being very cautious. She said that he checks first with an adult, and then does whatever he was going to do. He doesn’t answer the phone because it might be someone he doesn’t know.

On car trips, Joe gets extremely carsick. He also is sensitive to the heat. His head and stomach hurt, he feels dizzy, and he throws up. He gets very upset when friends pretend they will hit him and then stop. “It is unfair and mean.” To him, it is a huge thing. He can’t let it go.

After taking the homeopathic remedy that was most similar to what he was experiencing, Joe was not coughing after running, and the sensation of mucus in his throat was gone. In fact, when visiting the doctor after the first dose of the remedy, the doctor could no longer hear anything in his lungs. Joe was falling asleep easier at night, and was not getting up at night to ask questions. He was no longer experiencing carsickness, and his sensitivity to the heat also decreased. And when Joe and his family were vacationing in Hawaii, every morning Joe went up to the the desk clerk and asked for the sports section of the newspaper.

Over the years, Joe has had doses of the homeopathic remedy when it was needed. Sometimes, his sensitivity to heat has come back, or other acute situations have occurred. This is when a dose was given. He has though no longer experienced the coughing and the sensation of mucus in his throat.  Homeopathy heals the whole person. With Joe, the mucus in the throat and the coughing were better, as well as other aspects of him, his emotional state and other physical symptoms.  Homeopathy heals the person.
