Homeopathy for Babies and Children
Homeopathy has a long history of successfully treating health problems associated with childhood. Children often have a strong vitality and bounce back from acute illness without any problems. However, there are those whose immunity doesn't seem to be as strong and who seem to go from one illness into the next.
A natural way to improve your child's immunity
For children who suffer frequent infections, for example of the chest, throat or ear, homeopathy is an ideal form of treatment. Its gentle and non-toxic medicines will help children to get back to their own healthy selves, strengthening their immune system in such a way that illnesses usually become much less frequent. If you book your child in for homeopathic treatment you should see a good improvement in their immunity within a few months.
Which conditions are commonly treated?
The childhood ailments that can be treated effectively by homeopathy are numerous. Colic and digestive problems in babies, recurring ear, nose, throat and lung problems, eczema and other skin conditions, urinary tract infections or asthma would all be typical examples.
Children's emotional health
Homeopathy is just as beneficial when it comes to children's mental and emotional well-being. Many developmental and behavioural disorders in children can be addressed.
There might be the over-anxious child who finds it hard to sleep before an exam or a test at school. This child may also worry a lot in general and may not be able to relax easily.
A younger child may find the transition from home to school or playschool very difficult and be extremely clingy as a result.
Poor concentration at school can be another issue, as well as the inability to sit still in the classroom, or anywhere else for that matter. The child with ADHD can run into many problems, and the earlier this difficulty is addressed the easier it is generally to correct it.
Then there is the child with many fears, low self-esteem, insomnia, or the child who just seems to be in low spirits for some reason or other.
Children with developmental delays, learning disabilities or those on the autistic spectum can also benefit from homeopathy and reach their individual potential.
The remedies prescribed are easily dissolved in the mouth without a strong or bitter flavour, which makes them especially suitable for children. They can be used even for newborn babies.
