Homeopath for Children

Do you feel like you’ve tried everything to help your child, but nothing seems to be working?

Every child is different, and in order to treat a child appropriately, the caregiver must listen first and foremost to the parent carefully.

Many times, doctors that focus on western medicine do not have the time sit with the parent and pick up on the clues that might be contributing to a lack of balance in the body of the child.

The challenge with treating children is that they themselves have  a difficult time expressing how they feel. Many practitioners will deal directly with the obvious symptom without taking the time to listen to the many aspects of a child’s life that might be having an impact on their health.

Chronic ailments, in particular, can be disheartening to a mother or father who have tried everything to make their child healthy again.  If you feel you are this parent, homeopathy might be a solution to your child’s particular situation. Homeopathy for children is gentle and does not have side effects. Most importantly, as classical homeopaths, we focus on the entire body including the physical and emotional aspects.

We take the time to get to know your child and to listen to you as a parent or primary caregiver regarding your child’s symptoms, habits and overall lifestyle.

Children respond differently to stress, have different body temperature, eat different foods.

Whatever is affecting your child, we’ll take the time to develop a therapy that can bring balance back to her body and wellbeing.

  • Homeopathy can help children in many ways:
  • Homeopathy treats inherited tendencies to disease, those that are seen to run in families
  • Homeopathy safely strengthens the child’s immature immune system, unlike traditional medicines which weaken the body
  • Homeopathy heals recurring illnesses such as ear infections, skin conditions and asthma because it treats the root of the problem: the underlying energetic imbalance
  • Homeopathy treats behavioral difficulties (ADHD, aggression, etc.) without adverse side effects such as those found in psychotropic drugs
  • Homeopathy is easy to administer and tastes great

WHY CHILDREN RESPOND WELL TO HOMEOPATHY

Unfortunately, the overuse of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, and steroids can cause problems later in life because they prevent the strengthening of the child’s healing mechanisms. Children respond especially well to homeopathic treatment because they have not endured years of suppressive treatments.

Some common childhood illnesses that can be successfully treated homeopathically include:

  • recurrent infections of all kinds: ear, throat, respiratory
  • frequent colds
  • asthma
  • skin conditions: eczema, impetigo, acne
  • constipation, diarrhea
  • teething discomfort
  • behavioral problems: ADD, hyperactivity, aggression, violent outbursts
  • depression and anxiety

NEWBORNS AND INFANTS

Homeopathy can provide a natural and safe alternative to help solve some of these baby problems:

  • Colic
  • Rejecting mother’s milk
  • Allergies to milk and formula
  • Diaper rash

PROBLEM BEHAVIORS

Homeopathy is an excellent alternative to the many drugs used to treat children with behavioral problems. Some of these problems include hyperactivity, depression, aggression, anxiety and attention difficulties. Homeopathic remedies are safe, non-narcotic medicines which enhance overall health while addressing the problem areas.
