Homeopathy for Children

Homeopathy is the natural way to ensure a child’s health. It is a holistic treatment that provides an alternative way to treat common illnesses without the need for costly allopathic antibiotics and pain relieving medicine. Homeopathic remedies are safe, natural, fast acting and effective. There are many proponents for and against homeopathy but this website does not focus on the debate. It provides cures for common childhood problems and is based on personal experience and tried and tested remedies. The website does not necessarily abide by the classical view but focuses on effective cures and remedies. It is an over the counter approach and all information provided may be used at the sole risk of the practitioner without any liability accepted by the website. Information and remedies are provided in good faith and any parent is free to try them. All natural common sense precautions should be taken while treating any problem. In case of any emergency or persistent problem, a trained doctor should naturally be consulted. This website is not a substitute for a doctor and only provides over the counter treatment and advice.
Homeopathy has a good track record at treating first aid cases and certain acute diseases. These two kinds of complaints can be treated by homeopathy with a little guidance. The parent can symptomatically provide the remedies to the child for immediate relief. Chronic cases where the disease persists for a long time, recurs and gets worse over time are better treated by a trained homeopath where long term treatment over a few months may be required.
This link provides information on the basic principles of classical homeopathy.
Homeopathy works on the basis of Symptoms. The parent needs to study the symptoms being exhibited by the child; physical and mental/ psychological and then pick the remedy. The homeopathic remedy works almost immediately if the correct symptom is selected. Normally improvement can be seen after a few doses. If there is no relief within 12- 24 hours, the parent may need to change the remedy or consult a professional doctor. There may be different remedies suggested depending upon different symptoms. It is important to match the symptoms to the remedy to have an effective cure.
Homeopathic Remedies

Diarrhoea
This is a common problem with children. Normally the only recourse is antibiotics, which leave a child week and nauseated. Homeopathy provides many effective and safe cures for this problem. However there are many medicines and remedies that may be given depending upon the predominant symptom being exhibited. If the parent and/or homeopathic practitioner are able to ‘get’ the correct symptom, cure is almost instantaneous within a couple of hours at the most. The trick is to observe the child carefully.
Symptoms:-Diarrhea caused by an inability to digest milk.-During teething.
Recommended Remedy:
Aethusa 30C given every half and hour for a couple of hours ( four doses) and then once every four hours for 2- 3 days will normally help.
If the child is unable to control the passing of stools, the following remedy is very effective.
Symptoms:
-Diarrhoea with lots of wind.
-Inability to control the passing of stool. The child dirties his undergarments.
-Insecurity of the rectum.
Recommended Remedy:
Give one dose of Nux Vomica 200C and the start with the below mentioned remedy. Repeat one dose of Nux Vomica 200C every day in the morning during the course of the treatment.

If Diarrhoea is observed after ingesting bad food the following will help.
Symptoms:
-After bad food.
-Vomiting and Diarrhoea together.
-Weakness, Chill, thirst.
Recommended Remedy:
Arsenic Album 30C given every half an hour for 4-6 doses will provide relief. However it is important to continue this remedy for at least 3 days every 3- 4 hours to get rid of any infection in the stomach. This remedy may be combined with Podophylum 30C especially if the stools are accompanied with lot of profuse shooting Diarrhea and if there are cramps. In this case alternate Arsenic Album with Podophylum.
Another remedy is Veratrum Album 30C which may be tried if above does not work in severe cases of bad food disorder.
Symptoms:-Diarrhoea with stomach pains (colic)-Offensive green slimy stools.-Rotten smelling stools-Nausea
Recommended Remedy:Give one dose of Ipecacuanha 200C and the start with the below mentioned remedy. Give one dose of Ipecacuanha 200C every day in the morning during the course of the treatment.

If there is Diarrhoea without any other discernable symptom the following will work.

Recommended Remedy:
China 30C given every half an hour for 3-6 times will normally stop the motions. Continue for 3 more days reducing dosage to 3 times a day after the first day.

Tip: Confused? Check carefully the symptoms before giving remedy. If one remedy combination is not working after 3 – 4 doses, shift to another combination. Relief must be experienced after 3 doses. If there is no change in the child’s position even after the above remedies, rush the child to a hospital for professional treatment. It is also important to keep the child hydrated during Diarrhea to prevent fluid loss.

Tooth Decay
Some young children show signs of tooth decay and retracting gums at a very young age. This tooth decay in milk teeth is especially painful because it is very difficult to treat.

Give one dose of Thuja Occidentalis 200C in the morning for ten days.

Prepare the mixture by mixing 10-12 drops of the mother tincher in four to five teaspoons of clean mineral water just before application. This local application should be continued for at least 30 days before you find that tooth decay has stopped and the visit to the dentist is delayed.
After the above treatment, give Kresote 30C three times a day for 7 days. This remedy helps in reducing tooth decay in new teeth. Repeat after a month or two.
