I would like to address the benefits of homeopathic treatment for children and
why it is particularly important at this time. Why it is important for as many
people as possible to benefit from this effective non-toxic form of natural
is normal for young children to get colds and other infectious diseases, but
their immune systems should be able to fight these off, getting stronger and
stronger in the process.Unfortunately, the reverse is true.It is not unusual today to see children who are constantly
treated with antibiotics for ear infections, sore throats and other infectious
diseases.They have lost the
ability to fight off disease on their own. Possible reasons for this may be
poor diet, pollution, and the immuno-suppressant effects of the medications
is that antibiotics are not working the way they used to.
Germs are becoming immune to most antibiotics.Often what we think are many infections
is simply an infection that has never totally responded to the antibiotics a
child has been given.
How do we break this downward spiral of degenerating health
in our children?One way is to
have working knowledge of homeopathy.Understanding this gentle healing system empowers parents by giving them
effective ways to treat infectious diseases before they get out of hand.Homeopathic remedies are completely
safe and non-toxic and work by stimulating the immune system so that the body
can throw off disease effectively.
homeopathic education also helps a parent to understand the effects of poor
diet and environment on the child.It encourages living a healthy life style and acknowledges that health
must exist on the mental and emotional level as well as the physical
knowledge, parents can more easily understand the dynamics of health and
disease and act accordingly.The
whole family becomes generally healthier when these guidelines are
followed.When a few problems do
occur, then they can be treated with effective, natural remedies that really
If, in spite of
all of this a child is still getting many illnesses, constitutional homeopathic
treatment by a homeopath can often improve her health.This form of treatment is like a
general tonic for the child, improving the immune system and generally creating
greater balance. Children on successful constitutional treatment get fewer and
lighter infectious diseases, usually fighting these off on their own with not
need of treatment at all.
Even if a child
is under the care of a homeopath, a good understanding of homeopathy is
useful.This empowers the parent
and allows them to make wise decisions in their child’s health care.
