Why They Respond Well

The overuse of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids and vaccinations can cause serious problems later in life because they prevent the strengthening of the child’s healing mechanisms. Children respond especially well to homeopathic treatment because they have not endured years of suppressive treatments and the stressors in most adult lives today. Typically their defense mechanisms are in great working order. Some common childhood illnesses that can be successfully treated homeopathically include:

  • recurrent infections of all kinds: ear, throat, respiratory
  • frequent colds
  • asthma
  • skin conditions: eczema, impetigo, acne
  • constipation, diarrhea
  • teething discomfort
  • behavioral problems: ADD, hyperactivity, aggression, violent outbursts
  • depression and anxiety
