The use of homeopathic medicine is a spectacular life enhancing treatment for so many conditions that children commonly face in childhood. Whether it is an immune system challenge, behavior difficulty, skin conditions or low self-esteem, homeopathic medicines can provide significant results. These amazing medicines can often cure conditions rather than suppress or just provide temporary relief. Homeopathy has been around in the US since 1825 and was used by most physicians up until around the 1940’s. They are natural, free of side effects and administered commonly by chewable pills. The most exciting effect is that children can be and often are permanently cured of the ailment that they suffer from in a very short time.  Chronic skin conditions like eczema or dermatitis will often resolve rapidly. Recurrent infections will rapidly resolve. Gastric upset such as constipation, diarrhea or frequent stomachaches are often easily treated. Allergies and asthma are commonly cured permanently. Migraine headaches can reduce significantly or disappear completely over time.

Homeopathic medicines are made into potencies from dilutions of natural substances most commonly from plant or mineral extract. They can help modify a child’s behavior by removing abnormal impulses or emotional states that cause children to struggle. By making a child less impulsive they become more socially accepted and gain more self-esteem. These amazing remedies are able to increase focus and improve memory. Children on the autism spectrum can make great improvements over time with well-prescribed treatment along with educational techniques such as speech therapy.

The only reason that homeopathic medicines are not widely used is from the lack of education in the training of practitioners. The study of homeopathy is a great undertaking similar to medical school. The reward of many years of serious study is the ability of obtaining frequent cures of all kinds. Children enjoy taking the remedies as they are chewable and sweet tasting. They also get excited at the prospect of having hope of change and improvement.

With accurate homeopathic care there can be more peace in families. Calmness can prevail when the whole family is treated. Teachers will often notice that the child’s behavior has noticeably changed in a very short time. The remedies can quiet talkativeness and on the other extreme decrease shyness. I recall one 12 year-old boy who underwent treatment for extreme shyness with anxiety where he was too hesitant to raise his hand in class. After 4 months he began raising his hand answering questions in class. His self-esteem grew rapidly. His tendency to stutter resolved and he became more social. His mother was greatly appreciative of his progress.

A child’s appetite can often improve with constitutional homeopathic care over 4-5 months with more interest in healthy foods. As fear decreases an adventuresome spirit can appear. Subsequently we often see growth spurts develop more rapidly. Dark circles can disappear from under the eyes as the immune system comes into better balance.
