Homeopathy For Children

Homeopathy is known to be a gentle and an effective way of naturally curing diseases and health problems. Since it is natural, it is considered safe for children, babies, elderly and even for pregnant women. Homeopathy works on the principle of Law of Similars. According to this principle, the same thing that causes symptoms also holds the cure. The body is gradually exposed to substances that causes these symptoms, eventually boosting the bodys immune system and lessens the risk of these diseases from occurring.

The good thing about homeopathy is that it is non-toxic and safe. Aside from that, it is ideal for children to take since it is mostly mildly sweet pills, powders and liquids. In surveys, children and babies are said to respond to homeopathic treatment well. In a study conducted by MedScape Today, about 38.4 % of the adult respondents and 41.8% of children respondents were very satisfied with the treatment. In the same study, children responded better to homeopathic treatments.

Aside from treating existing sickness, homeopathic treatment can also strengthen the childs immune system and help the child restore his or her health. Homeopathy can be recommended to children who are suffering from asthma, bed wetting, rashes, bumps, bruises, ear infections, cold, teething, tonsillitis, irritability, restlessness, frequent upset stomach, diarrhoea, and motion sickness. There are even doctors who are using homeopathy to address infectious diseases like measles, chickenpox, and mumps.

Homeopathic pharmacies sell some medicines which can be used for simple problems. Here are some common problems and recommended remedy.

Rashes Calendula cream that has both the characteristic of an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.

Teething Chamomilla, about 30c can relieve pain especially if the baby is crying inconsolably.

Colic- Colocynth 30c preparation especially if the baby is starting to pressure his or her abdomen to keep off the pain.

Cough, colds and fevers Aconite 30c, Belladonna 30c, Gelsemium 30c, Pulsatilla 30c and Bryonia 30c.

For minor symptoms, there is no need to bring your child to the homeopath since children and babies tend to respond quickly with homeopath treatment. However, if the childs condition did not improve quickly, then it would be better to bring the child to the homeopath or your general paediatrician.

Even if your child is taking homeopathic treatment, maintain your relationship with your childs paediatrician. It may be necessary to perform both homeopathic and conventional treatment to ensure your childs safety and health. For example, if your child has serious asthma, it is dangerous to withdraw your child from taking them just because he is undergoing homeopathic treatment.

When getting a homeopath practitioner for your child, make sure that he or she is registered in the Register of the Society of Homeopaths. This would assure you that they are practicing in accordance with the Code of Ethics and Practice of the homeopath. Aside from that, the United States require homeopaths to be licensed doctors and at least practicing in another field. Check references and ask around about the homeopath to make sure he is not a quack or a self-proclaimed homeopath. Make sure that the homeopath practitioner you will be choosing will fit into these requirements.
