acute conditions such as colds, sore throats, and stomach flu, or persistent, chronic conditions such as allergies and eczema. Homeopathy is successful in both categories.

Homoeopathy is effective in treating variety of troubles that a child faces. Whether it is an infantile colic, teething trouble, aches and pains or even a behavioral disturbance Homoeopathy can manage them althus helps in keeping illnesses at bay. It
strengthens the child’s natural defenses so that
withinhe or she can fight off the cold or flu that every child around him may be facing. And helps them stay healthy and illness-free for longer durations of time.

Homoeopathic medications not only relieve common and acute problems of children but also prevent recurrent episodes of ill-health. Recurrent tonsillitis,
enlarged adenoids,
bedwetting, allergies,
constipation and many more illnesses can be safely and effectively treated with Homeopathy.

There is a wide range of emotional and mental conditions that homeopathy can help children with, such as:

Anxiety and Fears

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Behavioral Problems

Clinginess and whininess


Excessive anger



Nervousness and anxiety


Separation anxiety

Homeopathy is respectful of the mind/body connection. Experience teaches us that illness stems from the mind and from there manifests in the rest of the body. We therefore place great value on the mental and emotional symptoms as guides to the remedy.

The biggest advantage of Homeopathy is that the medicines are easy to administer and not bitter. Kids love them as they are small, sweet sugar pills which can be administered directly or can be crushed with the help of spoon and then given to the child. Children willingly and happily take Homeopathy. The amount of lactose content in Homoeopathic medications is so less that it poses no problems even in case of Diabetic children.

Homoeopathic system of medication believes that every person is unique and has his or her own ways of reacting to the environment and his or her own unique way of manifesting an illness. Your Homoeopath gives importance to each symptom that your child has, he also takes into consideration the causation of each complaint. It takes into consideration these differentiating, individualizing symptoms for prescribing. Hence, the treatment that each child receives is different from another child suffering from the same ailment.

The management strategy for each case is different and thus this approach is of great use in cases of children suffering from behavioral disorders. Homeopathic medications are not habit forming and thus one does not need to worry about ‘drug dependence’ especially in cases of emotional disturbances like ADHD, Autism, and Depression etc.

The benefits of Homoeopathy are much more than any other system of Medicine. Hence its time that you be wise, choose Homoeopathy and give your child the safest and most effective treatment for his or her illness.
