Homeopathy for Children
Situated in the Byron Bay, Debbie is currently practising at The Fountain Centre.
Why Homeopathy is Good for Children
An example may be a child who is treated for a skin disorder. At a homeopathic childrens clinic, a homeopath will examine the child both physically and mentally, and prescribe a remedy that will not only improve the child’s skin, but also help with their general health and well being. As a result, the parent will often notice improvements in other areas such as sleeping and eating habits, or reduction in anxiety and behavioural problems.
Homeopathy is not only a suitable for physical conditions, but has been proven successful in the treatment of childhood emotional problems such as anxieties, night terrors and behavioural difficulties.
It is gentle, safe, effective and has no side effects and is easy to administer to babies, toddlers and children. Homeopathy works by curing the child from the inside outwards, rather than merely relieving the symptoms.
Accute and Chronic Complaints in Children are Treated by Homeopathy
Acute complaints can be successfully treated in children using homeopathy. Children are generally quick to respond in regard to acute complaints, however a homeopath may suggest a follow up appointment to treat a child constitutionally for their improved well being.
If your child has a chronic complaint, we will usually recommend a follow-up visit after three to four weeks. As improvement is noticed appointments will be less frequent, and when well, a six monthly check up is recommended.
Many childhood problems respond particularly well to homeopathic treatment include:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Ear, Nose and Throat
- Behavioural Problems
- Learning Difficulties
- Asthma, Allergies and Hayfever
- Early Childhood Problems
- Eczema and Skin Rash
- Colds and Flu
Homeopathy and Pregnancy
Homeopathy is also helpful during pregnancy and post natal issues as well as for stress management in parents.
Most women are naturally concerned about consuming medications during pregnancy. Homeopathy suits pregnancy well because it does not introduce harmful substances into the body. Homeopathic remedies are completely safe in pregnancy and can, therefore, be useful in treating some the the troublesome symptoms that often accompany this state.
