Who hasn’t experienced it – the drama of an acute non-emergency illness only seems to happen at night or on weekends.
Homeopathy is the perfect tool to help your child. The Homeopathic remedy allows the child’s own healing system to work more efficiently to return them to a state of health. I am available for acute consultations to recommend the homeopathic remedy, potency (strength) and dosing.
Please call or fill out the Contact form to learn about how it works, there is no obligation, just an informative conversation about homeopathic care.
I also offer self care classes so parents can learn to be their family’s homeopathic helper. Children don’t mind taking the remedies, they are tiny sweet pellets that melt in the mouth or can be dissolved in water.
Children respond very well to Homeopathic remedies and can be assisted in speeding healing. It is amazing to witness a distressed, crying child relax into soothing sleep within minutes of a well selected homeopathic remedy. Homeopathy does not medicate and numb symptoms or work to kill any bacteria or virus. Instead homeopathic remedy assists your little one’s body to speed healing by supporting the self healing system to do the work it is created to do.
For example, what we see with ear infections (or sore throats or sinus infections) is the common cycle of anti-biotics, which most likely leads to another infection and more anti-biotics. And if the cycle continues, it leads eventually to a destroyed intestinal flora. Then digestive issues, assimilation problems, emotional and behavioral problems, and learning difficulties.
Homeopathy can help to avoid this cycle and help you raise healthy children.
Case example of Joey a 1year old boy with a sinus infection:
Joey (not his real name) had seen his grandmother and she came down with a cold a day after her visit. A few days later Joey was fussy and developed a 102 fever. His parents took him to see their pediatrician (always the best first step) who suspected a sinus infection and wrote a prescription for anti-biotics. Joey’s parents called me.
- sudden high fever
- nasal discharge mostly white, slightly yellow and very stringy and thick
- not quite as active as usual
The Homeopathic remedy Kali-bichromium is often helpful in cases where there is stringy, thick nasal discharge, when the child is a bit more quiet than usual, but not appearing terribly sick. The remedy was given in the 30C potency 3x per day for 2 days. The fever came down and the child slept well.
The next day the child was still fever free, the nasal discharge had cleared. Joey was whiny, crying often and clingy and perked up when going outside. This is the classic picture of the remedy Pulsatilla. 2 doses of it in the 30C potency and Joey was his normal self the next day. And is doing well.
Children that receive homeopathy, instead of anti-biotics, for their sinus infections or ear infections often do not have another. Homeopathy is not killing germs instead Homeopathy works to remove the susceptibility and strengthen the child’s resilience to overcome disease. In doing so it aides in normal development and maturation towards adulthood.

So why do we get sick?
When we are stressed, upset or face great challenges in life and life changing events, like growing up, we are much more likely to fall ill. We are so busy with the stress, we lower our defenses.
Homeopathy helps in the acute phase of the illness to speed healing. For some children there are chronic health concerns. In vaccinated children we often see recurring infections, allergies, and emotional, behavioral and learning challenges. A complete homeopathic intake and homeopathic treatment strengthens the child’s constitution and let’s the body’s healing system maintain a more vibrant state of health and well being.
Case example – Tommy (not his real name), a 7year old boy with recurrent coughs, colds and asthma, he is partially vaccinated – his symptoms:
- every year since 1 year old from October to March cough, cold leading to Asthma up to 2times per month
- many fears, the dark, the unknown and more
- loves ice cold drinks
- very intelligent, highly sensitive
This is a classic picture of the homeopathic remedy Phosphorus. Because Tommy had been struggling for almost his entire life he was given a liquid form of the remedy called an LM potency. He was seen in November and had already been sick 2x that year. After taking his remedy daily, he did not get sick again that winter. The following winter even when the rest of the family caught the flu he remained well and is so still.
For children just like adults there are chronic concerns and acute conditions. If your child has either physical or emotional, chronic or recurrent concerns, I welcome your questions on how homeopathy can help, call me at 858-617-9408.
Where can I get homeopathic remedies?
I highly encourage families to own a Homeopathic remedy kit, because there is nothing worse than a miserable, sick child and not having the homeopathic remedy that can soothe at hand.
You probably already know, children get fevers and stomach bugs at night or on weekends. Or a finger gets pinched in a door, or you fall on your tail bone………..you need Hypericum 30c or 200c – NOW. Not a trip to a health food store where there is only a limited selection of homeopathic remedies.
Remedy kits, safely stored away from high heat, magnets, microwave ovens and strong smelling solutions can last many years and cost a fraction per remedy as buying them individually. Or considering the stress, time, and cost of an unnecessary emergency room visit. Of course if the child is extremely ill go, and give the remedy on the way.
In addition to homeopathic care, I offer Homeoprophylaxis an alternative to vaccination to reduce the incidence of infectious childhood diseases. Read more here.
