Treating Children With Homeopathy
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.
Unlike 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
No injectables are required while you are on homeopathy. Even a comatose
child may be administered homeopathic medicines without injections, that is
the beauty of this science. To name some eminently children disorders, where
homeopathy 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. Homeopathy
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
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, double-blind, 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
This is a book that provides an in-depth and exciting
account of the history, philosophy, and experience of homeopathic medicine.
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.
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.
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 publicly stated that he believes current childhood
vaccine programs are one of the major causes for the current epidemic of autism."

problems, for which homeopathy has much to offer. Their books are eminently
readable, yet comprehensive." -Dr. Rajan Sankaran, internationally renowned
master homeopath and author
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?
Miranda Castro - "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."
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.
Homeopathic 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."
"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.
The applications of children's homeopathy are widespread
This includes 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.
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
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 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.
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
- Children's Tonic
- Earache, Fever
- Motion Sickness
I own several
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 labor and childbirth
A homoeopath explains how Homoeopathy can help in childbirth.
"Homoeopathy can be wonderfully effective during labor, often reducing the
need for drugs and surgical intervention. Every woman's experience of labor
is different and this is why Homoeopathy is particularly suited, since remedies
are prescribed on the whole state, i.e. the emotional and
physical symptoms of each woman.
Homoeopathy can help in many labor 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.
Everybody'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.
Morton Walker, D.P.M. - "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."
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.
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: diarrhea, thrush, loss of appetite and behavioral
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 children's 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
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.

Rage-Free Kids: Homeopathic Medicine for Defiant, Aggressive, and Violent Children
Robert Ullman N.D.
Although anger is a normal emotion, in certain children it can spiral out
of control and become something much less manageable such as rage. Based on their years
of clinical experience, homeopathic doctors Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman and Robert
Ullman have developed a natural answer to extreme anger. Now, in this eye-opening
resource for parents, they share their homeopathic approach to freeing defiant
children from aggressive behavior. Inside, concerned parents will learn not
only how to cope with the challenges of raising such a child, but, more important,
how to understand the source of the anger and effectively treat it.
A combination homeopathic remedies have been formulated by Dana Ullman, M.P.H.,

Homeopathic Remedies for Colic in Babies
by Miranda Castro, FSHom
Colic in Babies, Every Parents Nightmare. The constant crying of a colicky
baby is heart-rending. It comes at a particularly bad time, when expectations
for enjoying a newborn are cruelly dashed. It can make a new parent feel distressed
and ineffective if nothing seems to help. It is also exhausting for those parents
who find themselves walking the boards day and night in an attempt to soothe
their little ones. Homeopathic treatment can be a real life saver for these
parents at a time when they are concerned to find some relief for their baby's pain.
Homeopathic Medicine at Home : Natural Remedies for Everyday Ailments and Minor Injuries
by Maesimund, M.D. Panos, Jane Heimlich
"Of all the homeopathic books written for the general public, this is one
of the most useful. If you've suffered a minor injury, or come down with a cold,
flu or earache, or if you are having an upset stomach, this book will quickly
guide you to the correct remedy. It is easily understood by the medical layperson,
and it will give you solid knowledge of how to treat yourself and others in
a safe, natural way, without the risks, side-effects and costs of conventional
drugs. It goes without saying that any self-help book, no matter how good, does
not replace the care of a medical professional. If you have a serious or chronic
condition, and you think that homeopathy can help, go see a qualified homeopathic practitioner."
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.
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 deeper levels 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.
