Child and Family Care

Natural Alternatives for your Family

So many families today are trying to live a more natural, healthy lifestyle, and so many moms I know are looking for ways to prevent round after round of winter colds, ear infections, flu, and coughs.

The great advantage of homeopathic treatment is in its simplicity;  one  individualized medicine is administered at a time rather than a large number of expensive supplements and challenging dietary constraints.

Despite its simplicity, the medicine is deep acting and holistic. It can strengthen and balance the immune system by treating the whole person.

Five Reasons to choose Homeopathic Care for your Family:

1. You want a complementary health care provider for your family who takes the time to listen to your concerns, takes you seriously, and who looks at the whole picture.

2. You want a simple, individualized medicine that addresses the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

3. You are seeking help for a child with chronic health problems or difficulties at school such as ADD, ADHD, anxieties, phobias, or behaviour problems. (Check out my article on Homeopathy for children with ADHD)

4. You want to treat the whole child at a deeper level for prevention as well as symptom relief.

5.  You want to avoid repeated or over use of antibiotics,  with prevention and natural treatment

What Can Homeopathy Treat?

I tend to see children who have repeated or recurring ‘acute’ coughs or ear infections and have been prescribed many rounds of antibiotics. Naturally parents want to try to change the pattern and avoid overuse of antibiotics. Homeopathic treatment¬† – between acute episodes – can get to the underlying cause by treating the whole person and often I have observed these patterns will stop and overall health improves.

Children may have problems with teething, colic, coughs, flus,  and ear infections to chronic problems such as constipation, digestive problems, eczema, allergies, asthma, depression, anxiety, phobias,  ADD/ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders. Homeopathy treats the child as a whole person, taking temperament, stress and emotional issues into account along with physical symptoms.

The Consultation

The initial intake session takes 1 to 1.5 hours, and we go over the full medical history and any health concerns.  The number of treatment sessions required varies depending on the individual and the nature of the illness, but usually three sessions are needed for optimum benefit.

Young children should be seen by your family physician for examination and diagnosis  before visiting a Homeopath.
