Treating Children With Homeopathy

Homeopathic medicine for children and infants

The homeopathic approach is growing in popularity as an alternative treatment for hyperactivity in children. Homeopathy is gaining recognition in the conventional field of medicine and has been subject to many clinical trials. Homeopathic treatment for children can be separated into two categories: self-limiting, 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. Homeopathy can raise the immunity of your children to help deal with illness throughout their childhood. It can also help prevent illness and give support through difficult periods of their life. With Homeopathy children's health can improve and chronic conditions often clear up completely and never come back. It is safe with no harmful side effects. Homeopathy cures by looking at the whole individual and can be effective in unexpected ways. If you have tried everything else and are still not in wonderful good health why not give Homeopathy a chance to help you.

Homeopathic Medicines for Children and Infants

Ever since the science of homoeopathy was introduced 200 years ago by a German doctor Samuel Hahnemann, it has won praise especially for the treatment of little new-born, neo-nate, infants and children; of course for variety of reasons. Today, there are many paediatricians preferring homoeopathic treatment for their children and patients in various paediatric conditions. Essentially, any medicine administered to children must be free from harmful effects. Homoeopathic medicines are prepared mainly from herbs, vegetable kingdom, minerals and are given in very minute doses so that they are 100% non-toxic, having no adverse effects whatsoever.

Smart Medicine for a healthier ChildUnlike antibiotics and other such medicine, homoeopathic pills do not hamper digestion; does not lower resistance power; does not produce allergy and does not harm even if taken for long-term. Homoeopathy pills being sweet in taste, is accepted with pleasure by children. They are never bitter, cause no nauseative feeling and kids do not make fuss while taking homoeopathic medicines. It is so easy to take that even one day old neonates can be administered treatment without forcefully inducing in them, saving them from lot of weeping, crying and inconvenience. Homoeopathic therapy is superior to traditional treatment of administering medicine through injections.

No injectables are required while you are on homoeopathy. Even a comatose child may be administered homoeopathic medicines without injections, that is the beauty of this science. To name some eminently children disorders, where homoeopathy works very well : Infants colic, Fever, Teething problems, Vomiting, Dysentery, Nephrotic Syndrome, kidney disease, Growth related problems, and Convulsions (Epilepsy), Infantile Eczema, Jaundice, Brain infections (Meningitis), Fungal infections, Warts, Hair-Loss (Alopecia), Growing pains, Poor concentration, Arthritis in children, Psoriasis, Leucoderma (white spots), Pimples, and Thyroid problems to name a few. Homoeopathy can be proclaimed to be definitely effective, for various emotional disorders occurring commonly in the new generation children of this 20th century. Various psychosomatic disorders such as Bed-wetting, Headaches, and Gastritis respond to homoeopathy.

The Promise of Homeopathy Whether children actually know or sense that homeopathic medicines are good for them for not, they deserve safe medicines. It is time that parents and physicians seek safe, natural and effective alternatives to conventional, potentially harmful drugs. Homeopathic medicine is one such alternative.

Homeopathic remedies are able not only to relieve many common acute problems of children, but can help prevent recurrent bouts of illness. And homeopathic medicines can treat both physical ailments and emotional upsets. A new study, published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal on 2/12/01, is the first placebo-controlled study to suggest that homeopathy is effective in the treatment of acute otitis media in young children. Their randomized, double0blind, placebo-controlled, pilot study of 75 children aged 18 months to six years with middle ear effusion and ear pain and/or fever for no more than 36 hours was conducted in Seattle Washington, by Jennifer Jacobs, M.D.

Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy is a book that provides an in-depth and exciting account of the history, philosophy, and experience of homeopathic medicine. At the core of Impossible Cure is the amazing story of how the author's son was cured of autism with homeopathy. It also includes dozens of other testimonials of homeopathic cure, for a variety of physical, mental, and emotional conditions.

Homeopathic Treatment of Autism - Homeopathy isn't a "take this for that" medicine. Ten different autistic children might be prescribed ten different remedies. Choice of remedy depends on a child's individual characteristics. However, there are some remedies that are more commonly used than others to treat children in this community.

Inner health through Homeopathy Autism, unfortunately, is a very serious condition and is not an easy cure. For example, while ADD (ADHD) has an 70% cure rate in many homeopathic practices, autism is much more difficult. However there are definitely many cases of homeopathic autism cures besides Max's. Although complete cures cannot be expected in most cases, the homeopath who treated Max (John Melnychuk -- see below) and many other homeopaths who treat autistic children are seeing significant progress in a majority of cases. If treatment begins early -- especially before age 5 -- there is room for great hope! Even later treatment can find success. But you must have commitment and view treatment as a long term process that will take months and years, not days or weeks.

Dr. Harold E. Buttram, M.D- "Childhood autism is the result of encephalitis affecting primarily the limbic system of the brain, located below the cerebral cortex. A relatively few number of cases are due to genetic causes, but officially the great majority are of unknown causes. Bernard Rimland, PhD, founding director of the Autism Research Institute, estimates that there are now a minimum of 250,000 autistic children in America, a 10 to 15-fold increase in the past 50 or so years. Dr. Rimland, internationally recognized as a leading expert in the field of autism, has publically stated that he believes current childhood vaccine programs are one of the major causes for the current epidemic of autism."

Homeopathy for Children - Beyond Antibiotics

How many of us have sat at our childs bedside feeling helpless as the child suffers with repeated colds, fevers, respiratory complaints, painful earaches, etc. Not knowing if anything is seriously wrong and wanting to seek some sort of relief for our child, we may take her to see a medical doctor. Chances are likely that she will be given an antibiotic, cough suppressant, a decongestant or maybe you will be told everything is fine and advised to just give her a dose of acetaminophen to ‘keep the fever down. You do as advised, your child recovers only to relapse again shortly after. Now what? Another round of antibiotics and more drugs?

"Homeopathic treatment will help at all stages of a childhood illness: with an itchy rash or painful, swollen glands; with an accompanying cough or sore, sticky eyes; and children usually recover quicker and easier and without complications. Antibiotic treatment is ineffective for viral infections (except scarlet fever) and will only add to your child's stress load. Avoid them during this time and use homeopathic remedies to help stimulate your childs inner healer." - Miranda Castro

Homoeopathy for Children
by Frederick Cole D. Hom

Frederick Cole has been a practicing homoeopath for 15 years and is president of the United Kingdom Medical Association.

My younger daughter then aged two had a severe case of measles and was treated with homoeopathy to ease the symptoms. She had not been vaccinated but she caught the infection from her equally as ill older sister who had! When she was six the same daughter woke one morning with swelling on one side of her jaw. A visit to the GP confirmed our diagnosis of mumps. No treatment available was the GP's statement, just keep her warm in bed and she would be over it fully in about ten days. As there were no distinct indications my daughter was given a tablet of Merc. cor. 6 to hourly. By bedtime the swelling had gone totally. The next morning she woke with the swelling on the other side, but with distinct symptoms pointing to Belladonna, hot, flushed face, pain on slightest movement. With the remedy given at two hour intervals the swelling had reduced by fifty per cent by the next morning. By the third evening it had gone completely and on the evening of the sixth day my daughter was dancing, whooping and yelling at her elder sister's birthday party as if nothing had occurred.

Treatment of Children with HomeopathyHomeopathic Treatment of Children: Pediatric Constitutional Types
by Paul Herscu, ND

"Dr. Herscu's work is the first modern pediatric materia medica. This book represents a significant step forward in helping practitioners who treat children to understand the importance of seeing the integration of body and mind, the developmental aspects of each, and their manifestation in health and disease. This book will greatly aid my pediatric practice, for his writings enabled me to see, hear, smell, taste and experience each of the major childhood constitutional types." - Richard Solomon, M.D., Assistant Professor, Medical College of Pennsylvania, Allegheny General Hospital

"This book is a compelling description and impressively practical guide to the use of homeopathic medicines in treating underlying health problems of children. Herscu's clear and vivid depictions of these constitutional types will help anyone understand children more deeply and help to cure them more completely" - Kenneth P. Stoller, M.D., Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Linda Johnston, MD - "At the turn of the last century, mothers treating their children's problems easily and inexpensively caused the news of Homeopathy to spread like a brush fire. Many people successfully treated typhoid, cholera, measles, mumps, tuberculosis, smallpox and other diseases with their Homeopathic remedies and without doctors."
Homeopathy for Pregnancy and birth
"Most parents feel compelled to take some disease-preventing action for their children. While there is no 100% guarantee anywhere, there are viable alternatives. Historically, homeopathy has proven many times to be more effective than allopathic medicine in the treatment and prevention of disease, with risk of harmful side effects. In a U.S. cholera outbreak in 1849, allopathic medicine saw a 48-60% death rate, while homeopathic hospitals had a documented death rate of only 3%. Roughly similar statistics still hold true for cholera today. Recent epidemiological studies show homeopathic remedies as equaling or surpassing standard vaccinations in preventing disease. There are reports in which populations that were treated homeopathically after exposure had a 100% success rate-none of the treated caught the disease. There are homeopathic kits available for disease prevention. Homeopathic remedies can also be taken only during times of increased risk (outbreaks, traveling, etc.), and have proven highly effective in such instances. And since these remedies have no toxic components, they have virtually no side effects. In addition, homeopathy has been effective in reversing some of the disability caused by vaccine reactions, not to mention many other chronic conditions with which allopathic medicine has had little success."

Vaccine Free Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Contagious Disease with Homeopathy

This book provides an introduction to homeopathic philosophy, discusses the side-effects of vaccines, and succinctly outlines the homeopathic prevention and treatment of childhood illnesses, tropical diseases, and sexually transmitted diseases. The philosophy and practical applications of homeopathy described in this book offer the world an alternative or conjunctive path to the use of vaccination for the treatment and prevention of infectious contagious diseases. Moreover, this book is full of useful information and advocating for the effective treatment of infectious contagious disease with homeopathy. Considering the state of affairs in world health, where more than half of the world lives in poverty, without clean water, and adequate food supplies, the annihilation of infectious contagious disease with any healing modality is very difficult. Homeopathy offers an inexpensive and effective treatment plan which can more radically improve the status of health on this planet for its human inhabitants than any other system of medicine has so far.

Not only is the information herein useful for the treatment of infectious contagious diseases but it also lays a foundation for deeper study into chronic disease. The philosophical chapters introduces the basic tenants of homeopathy, and overview of the immune system, and discusses vaccine injury in the immune system in the light of homeopathic philosophy. The clinical chapters cover: childhood eruptive disease such as chickenpox, measles, and scarlet fever: diseases that have a historical significance and/or raise concerns due to biological warfare, smallpox, anthrax, and plague: more common household illness of Haemophilus influenza, otitis media, influenza, mononucleosis, and pneumonia: sexually transmitted diseases of herpes, genital warts, gonorrhea, syphilis, AIDS and hepatitis, accompanied with an in depth look at the expression of human psychology associated with these diseases: five of the most common tropical diseases, yellow fever, typhoid, dengue fever, cholera and malaria providing sufficient information for prevention and treatment:. The remaining chapters cover homeopathic prevention and treatment for rabies, tetanus, diphtheria, mumps, and tuberculosis.

Post-Vaccinal Behavioural Problems

Ill-humour, anxiety, aggressiveness, contact disturbances, hysterical behaviour, ADHD, PDD-nos, ADD, autism - A proof by cure with homeopathy

In this article it is intended to show evidence of the relationship between vaccination and behavioural problems in children, from mild to severe (ADHD and autism), through 30 case histories. The evidence is provided through the use of potentised vaccines. The hypothesis is that if the complaints disappear or strongly ameliorate with the treatment of the potentised substance which is supposed to be the cause of the complaints, the proof is delivered that the particular substance caused the damage. The fact that mild, moderate and severe cases of behavioural problems, often with concomitant physical problems, are seen and cured by this method strengthens the evidence of a causal relationship between vaccinations and behavioural problems.

Discovering HomeopathyThe applications of homeopathy are widespread -- everything from treating the common cold to clearing up childhood ear infections. It's this latest use that caught the attention of a group of West Coast researchers, who set out to evaluate in a scientific way the many reports of homeopathic success.

"We set this up as a pilot study, not really expecting to see any positive effect from homeopathy," says researcher Jennifer Jacobs, MD, MPH, clinical assistant professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine in Seattle. "We were surprised that homeopathy decreased symptoms [of middle ear infections] in the first 24 hours of treatment."

The implications are important. Not only did the researchers determine that individualized homeopathic treatments can give early relief to the ear pain, fever, and fussiness associated with ear infections, they also say such treatment could potentially help reduce antibiotic use in children, something which has been associated with increasing rates of antibiotic resistance.

Homeopathic medicine at Home Dr. James Howenstine, MD - "Multitudes of infants have frequent recurring ear infections. These “infections” usually subside when milk intake ceases as they are often caused by allergy to milk. Many children have tubes placed in their ear canals because of these “ear infections”. This procedure has recently been discovered to lead to decreased hearing as adults. This whole infantile ear infection problem is usually milk allergy not bacterial infection."

Childhood Ear Infection: Alternative to Antibiotics and Ear Tubes
Antibiotics and ear tubes treat symptoms of a problem. They do not strengthen the organism so that it can fight the infection itself, nor do they make the organism less resistant to future infection. A study, published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal on 2/12/01, is the first placebo-controlled study to suggest that homeopathy is effective in the treatment of acute otitis media in young children.

Children and Babies, Pregnancy and Birthing Remedy Kits

"For the child, homeopathy can help with clingy behavior, difficulties with sleep, behavioral problems, learning disabilities, fears, shyness, excessive anger, skin conditions, reactions to vaccines and many other frequently encountered problems. It is unsurpassed in the treatment of childhood acute diseases, yielding rapid results in a gentle manner, by stimulating the child's immune system rather than suppressing it.

During the teen years homeopathy can help with the hormonal changes of puberty and the acne that often appears at this time, but primarily it can assist with the emotional upheavals, which frequently occur as little girls make the transition to womanhood."
Deborah Olenev, C.C.H.

Homeopathic medicine developed much of its popularity in the United States and Europe because of its success in treating people with cholera, scarlet fever, yellow fever and other infectious diseases that were ravaging populations. Homeopathy also provides many valuable medicines in treating people who suffer from accidents and injuries. When these medicines are used in conjunction with conventional first aid procedures, the risk of long-term damage from an injury can be significantly decreased and the healing process can be noticeably enhanced.

Homeopathy TodayHomeopathy Today includes inspiring articles and testimonials from veterinarians and others who have improved their animal's health or saved their lives with homeopathy. If you're interested in homeopathy, this is one magazine to get. Homeopathic remedies may be bought over the counter in all countries, and are being used to treat both human beings and animals. Each month it features articles and information from todays leading homeopaths. I wait for mine to arrive each month and then read it cover-to-cover! Published six times a year, each issue features articles by some of the world's best homeopaths on self-treatment for common ailments (e.g., hay fever, ear infections, and the flu); on the homeopathic treatment process and the philosophical underpinnings of homeopathy; and on specific remedies or diseases. Readers are kept up to date on the latest topics in homeopathic education, legislation that impacts homeopathic practice, conferences and workshops, reviews of new books, and much more. And each issue also contains at least one or two cure stories -- contributed by both practtioners and patients -- of their successful experiences with homeopathic treatment. In sum, there is material in each issue of Homeopathy Today that will interest everyone -- from patients to experienced practitioners. Highly recommended for laypeople, students, and professionals alike.

Homeopathic kitHomeopathy can be of great assistance when dealing with minor injuries at home or out in the world. Often an injury is not serious enough to warrant a trip to the doctor's office. It is a good idea to put together or purchase a homeopathic kit. There are a few essential remedies that you will come back to over and over again. The kit is recommended for use in self-limiting conditions and conditions that do not require medical monitoring or diagnosis. The children's remedy kit contains the twelve combinations:

  • Children's Tonic
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Earache, Fever
  • Hives
  • Insomnia
  • Motion Sickness
  • Teething
  • Tonsilitis

Note from shirleyI own several homeopathic kits at home and I keep one kit in the clove compartment of my car for emergencies. I find the cost of the kits to be much more economical than individual bottles. On average one homeopathic bottle in a kit cost about US$ 2.35 instead of $9+ for a single individual bottle. I only use one to three tiny little pellets as a dose when treating myself, my family or my pets. Unlike allopathic medicine, the size and quantities of homeopathic pellets make no difference in the therapeutic results. One pellet, the size of a grain of sugar has the same therapeutic effect as a pellet the size of a pea. Likewise, twenty pellets have the same therapeutic effect as one pellet. Avoid exposing your remedies to direct sunlight and strong odors (cleaners, mint, camphor). Endeavor to refrain from handling the tablets directly with your fingers--it is better to put the tablet into the bottle cap and dispense it from there. Shirley

Homeopathy can help with labour and childbirth
A homoeopath explains how Homoeopathy can help in childbirth.

"Homoeopathy can be wonderfully effective during labour, often reducing the need for drugs and surgical intervention. Every woman's experience of labour is different and this is why Homoeopathy is particularly suited, since remedies are prescribed on the whole state, i.e. the emotional and Homeopathy, Herbal remedies and nutitional supplementsphysical symptoms of each woman.

Homoeopathy can help in many labour situations, often where there is no medical alternative. For example, the remedy 'Caulophyllum' can strengthen weak contractions, speeding up an exhausting and lengthy birth. 'Pulsatilla' is a remedy which can sometimes help turn a breech baby into the correct position. 'Arnica' can be taken before and after labour to promote healing and minimise bruising, and often speeds up recovery after a caesarian. It can also be given to the newborn baby to help cope with the shock of being born, and again to promote healing. The remedy 'Calendula' can be taken when there is a very sore birth canal and the possibility of tearing. It can alleviate the soreness very quickly, and in doing so reduces the likelihood of tearing. A few drops of 'Calendula' tincture can also be added to the bath after birth to help heal soreness and wounds quickly. Many other situations - such as retained placenta, fear, severe pain and exhaustion - also respond very well to Homoeopathy, often preventing the need for drugs which may have lasting side effects. Remedies during labour work rapidly and the effects are felt almost instantaneously. Louise, for example, became terrified at the beginning of labour - a common reaction - and was very fearful of losing control, feeling that she was going to die. The remedy 'Aconite 200c' was given and within minutes her fear dissipated and she gained the courage to go on. The remedies also worked very quickly on Joanne, who had very severe labour pains to the point that she was weeping with them. She wanted someone to take the pain away, and was holding onto her husband for reassurance. The remedy 'Pulsatilla 200c' was given and almost instantly the pain subsided together with the weeping, enabling her to carry on with renewed vigour.

Everybodies guide to homeopathic medicinesEverybody's guide to homeopathic medicines

Like the title of the book says this is a self-care guide. It is the best book I've seen so far on treating common, acute ailments using homeopathic remedies - and I've read quite a few. In the front of the book is a wonderful explanation of how homeopathic remedies work. Next, they've organized the book by various common ailments - everything from the common cold to poison ivy. Each ailment section contains easy to use, step by step instructions for evaluating symptoms and choosing a remedy. Including a handy chart listing several possible remedies and the various indications for it. You use these charts to examine both your physical and emotional state and what makes you feel better or worse. Based upon this information, you choose the remedy that best fits your symptoms. These charts are effective for personal treatment or treatment of family and friends. I like to let my family look at the chart and pick the remedy they think they need.

Alternatives to Antibiotics"After 40 years of pushing antibiotics for any ailment, physicians are now confronting bacteria that have built defenses against those same drugs. Some infectious bacteria that were once treatable are stronger and often deadly. The reappearance of highly infectious bacteria is caused in part by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics, but the resilience of bacteria also stems from the ingenious biochemistry of the microorganisms themselves. To survive, microorganisms and fungi mutate into resistant strains." Morton Walker, D.P.M. Alternatives to Antibiotics more info

Steroids The sleaziest of drugs
"Doctors tell you that steroids (cortisone, prednisone) only cause side effects after many years. But new research shows that permanent damage is immediate and devastating. Studies show that steroids cause permanent, debilitating effects after a single dosage.

Homeopathy for childhood illnesses
by Miranda Castro, FSHom, RSHom(NA), CCH

Homeopathic treatment can help at all stages of a childhood illness: with an itchy rash or painful, swollen glands; with an accompanying cough or sore, sticky eyes; and children usually recover more quickly and easily-and without complications. Antibiotic treatment is ineffective for viral infections (except scarlet fever which is bacterial) and will only add to your child's stress load. Avoid them during this time and use homeopathic remedies to help stimulate your child's inner healer. Learn about homeopathic treatment for Whooping cough, Scarlet fever, German measles, Mumps, Roseola, and more.

Homeopaths are concerned about the effects of repeated courses of antibiotics, especially on a child's developing immune system. Because many cases of infection will subside within 24 hours, especially earache (whatever treatment is given) some doctors are now adopting a wait-and-see policy for children with minor, acute infections and are willing to support parents who choose TLC and alternative medicine over antibiotics. Many parents are choosing to save antibiotics for when they are really needed because of their concern over side effects: diarrhoea, thrush, loss of appetite and behavioural changes are all common. We need to approach these illnesses in our children in a way that encourages their own natural immunity.

Homeopathy Halts Hyperactivity

"Clinicians using homeopathy for ADHD have reported good results, but objective evidence has been lacking. Now, a double blind, placebo-controlled study of 43 children with ADHD shows that homeopathy can be effective in treating the disorder. In the study, children afflicted with ADHD were given either a homeopathic treatment or a placebo for ten days, then parents or caregivers rated the children on the amount of ADHD behavior they displayed. Those receiving homeopathic medicines showed significantly less ADHD behavior than those given placebos. When evaluated in a follow-up interview two months after the study's end, 57% of the children showing improvement with homeopathy had continued to improve, even though they had discontinued the homeopathic medicines; twenty-four percent relapsed by the time of the follow-up; and the remaining 19% continued to experience positive results, but only while taking the homeopathic medicines."

Homeopathy for Hyperactivity
by Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, N.D., M.S.W.

Hyperactive children are unique, fascinating, and often brilliant children, but they frequently end up in exceptional student education programming for learning or behavioral problems. Untreated, some children will outgrow the condition; others will become hyperactive adults. An increasing number of families are dissatisfied with stimulant medications, like Ritalin and Dexedrine, and more parents are seeking deeper answers for their childrens behavior through natural alternatives. The homeopathic approach to attention deficit disorders (ADD/ADHD) is very different from that of conventional medicine. There are over 2000 homeopathic medicines, rather than the small number of conventional medications used to treat ADD/ADHD. Homeopathy can offer an effective solution for many children. As an example, let's look at the case of "Teddy," a nine-year-old.

An Alternative to Ritalin: Homeopathy as a Highly Effective Treatment for ADD
Homeopaths are able to treat ADD effectively in many cases by bringing the individual into balance.

Homeopaths treat people with ADD, not the ADD itself. For a homeopath, what needs to be treated is the specific pattern of symptoms which an individual presents. Only the one homeopathic medicine that specifically matches the unique symptoms of the individual will allow the person to live in a functional way.

Each of these individuals included in this book is unique, and it is that uniqueness that leads to the homeopathic prescription in such a different way than with conventional medicine. Our clinical experience, presented in the case studies in this book, as well as the published experience of other homeopaths, suggests strongly that homeopathy is a useful treatment for ADD. Homeopaths always take the whole person into account. If the chief complaint of the person is his inability to sit still, difficulty concentrating, or other symptoms of ADD, these behaviors would certainly be taken into account, but in combination with all the person's other symptoms. The homeopath would note anything unusual about that person. That might include a history of scarlet fever during childhood, a strong fear of birds, recurrent dreams of falling out of bed at night and no one coming to the rescue, or a craving for persimmons. The homeopath sincerely seeks to understand the uniqueness of the patient.

Crying Babies
by Miranda Castro, FSHom

A babys cry is one of natures loudest sounds. At eighty to eighty-five decibels, it is as loud as an unmuffled truck, not far below the pain threshold! Some babies cry more than others, those who do cry usually settle down within three to six months. This is a long time in the life of a new parent! It is easy to understand how these parents become desperate and frayed around the edges. Babies have different cries–a grating scream, a constant whining, a miserable moaning, a shrill wail–which can drive their parents mad. Some cry more during the day, only really settling when they are being fed or carried; others cry more at night, waking an unbelievable number of times. And some poor unfortunate parents have babies that cry day and night.

An Autistic Child and Homeopathy

Max's Story --- A Carcinosin Cure
by Amy L. Lansky, PhD

Most homeopaths come to this great art of healing because of some "conversion" experience. Typically, some miracle -- large or small -- has alerted them to the mystery and monumental nature of Hahnemann's discovery. In my own case, my younger son Max was cured of an "incurable" condition: mild autism. He began treatment at age 3.5. A year later, none but the most discerning would suspect that he had had any kind of problem at all. Obviously, this miracle changed the entire dynamic and potential future of my family. It also propelled me to alter my career course and devote myself to the study and promotion of homeopathy.

Parent's guide to medical emergenciesA Parent's Guide to Medical Emergencies : First Aid for Your Child by Janet Zand

At first glance this looks like your standard first-aid guide for parents, but an interesting surprise awaits inside. Yes, there's the standard (and, in this case well-written and easily accessible) information for dealing with emergencies, and yes, it's easy to reference. But this is the only book I've found that deals with what happens once the immediate crisis has passed. Written by a doctor, a naturopath, and a registered nurse, A Parent's Guide to Medical Emergencies includes homeopathic and herbal recommendations; for example, did you know that after an asthma attack, licorice tea can help calm and soothe the respiratory tract? An excellent section on ways to deal with trauma during--and after--a crisis.

Professional Homeopathic Care

Correctly prescribed homeopathic remedies can often undue the damage caused by vaccines Homeopathy is noted for its success to antidote or remove the toxic effects of vaccines and to re-establish balance in the organism and restore health.

Homeopathy in Epidemic DiseasesHomeopathy in Epidemic Diseases by Dorothy Shepherd
This excellent reference provides vital information for dealing with infectious diseases. Homeopathy can be used successfully to prevent and treat measles, whooping cough, chickenpox, and other ailments.

Smallpox vaccine can cause horrific and dangerous reactions (see pictures). Homeopathy has been successfully used to prevent and cure smallpox.

On page 576, of “Dose and Potency” by Dr. P.S Rawat, Constantine Hering, M.D. (1800-1880) is being quoted about the action of Sarracenia Purpurea. (the numbers 3, 6, and 9 refer to the potency). I strongly recommend that you do not take homeopathic remedies without consulting with a professional homeopath first. This is not a usual disclaimer. I really mean it. Shirley 1A women far advanced in pregnancy was cured of small-pox with Sarr. 3, 6, and 9, delivery being happily accomplished during her convalescence, the infant bearing on its body numerous red blotches, indicating that it has been affected with the disease.
b2. An infant, a few months old was attacked with a grave form of small-pox, with variolous angina so severe that it was with difficulty it could take the breast; the mother took Sarr. 3, 6, and 9, and continue to nurse the infant, which promptly recovered, the mother not taking the disease.
b3. In an epidemic occurring in the environs of Wavre, Sarr. Was given to two thousand persons living in the very middle of the disease and coming in constant intercourse with it, but all who took Sarr. Escaped; during the same epidemic two hundred cases were treated with Sarr. Without a death” (JHC) Dr. Pitcairn has a very good article on variola (smallpox) where Sarracenia is also mentioned, as well as other homeoapatic remedies for the prevention and cure of smallpox: "The successful internal application of Malandrinum as a preventative has been confirmed this season (1880-81), by Dr. R. Straube and myself." (Dr. H. Boskowitz, of Brooklyn)

HYDRASTIS CANADENSIS (Golden Seal) "The power of Hydrastis internally and locally over smallpox seen in modifying the disease, abolishing its distressing symptoms, shortening its course, lessening its danger and greatly mitigating its consequences (J. J. Garth Wilkinson)."

This excellent book provides homeopathic alternatives to vaccines. Includes case studies and several remedies for the most common infectious diseases.

Dr. Smits MD writes: "Once the diagnosis of The Post-Vaccination Syndrome (PVS) is considered a simple and efficient treatment can restore health by giving the vaccinations that caused the disease in homeopathic potencies. Even severe damage as paralysis, epilepsy, general decline, etc. can partially or completely be restored."

"Vaccination in children and adults can result in a variety of chronic health problems." Dr. Tinus Smits MD

The Post-Vaccination Syndrome Dr. Tinus Smits MD "Paediatrician Yvonne Pernet has recommended Thuja 30C to the parents of all the children she has vaccinated for several years. When she stepped over to the preventive use of potentised vaccines the difference in the results was indisputable. There were patently fewer side-effects to vaccination with this novel method. In fact, the energetic level becomes safeguarded so it can no longer be disturbed by the vaccine. It is as if the organism is warned of the approaching ‘artificial illnesses and can therefore better maintain its balance. It must be remembered that chronic complaints can only occur because the deeperlevels of our energy have been disturbed."

Homeopathic Alternative to vaccines Nosodes are homeopathic preparations made from cultures of microbes and viruses.. The nosode is prepared by serial dilution. Nosodes are administered in different two basic ways. In the case of nosodes from bacteria and viruses, the preparation carries the molecular imprint of the proteins and other constituents of the pathological agent. The working of the nosode is based on the fact that the immune system is sensitized to this molecular imprint without being exposed to the virulence of the living agent. The use of nosodes as a replacement for vaccination is based on this mechanism.

A nosode from a pathological agent, such as the measles, whooping cough (pertussis), etc., carries the molecular imprint of the agent and therefore sensitizes the immune system in such a way as to prepare the body for the defense against that same pathological agent. This is important in the case of children's diseases, where a primary infection is necessary to immunize the child, often for life, at a moment when the baby is highly vulnerable.

Whether a baby will be immunized with a vaccine or not, the administration of a nosode for each of the common children's diseases is an ideal way to start building immunity. Because of the fact that the agent is present in the nosode as an imprint and not as a virulent entity, it is a safe and gentle way to sensitize the immune system. It will protect against shock and serious consequences in the case of infection or vaccination. (more about nosodes)
