Homeopathy has emerged as a complementary alternative to conventional medicine, which is increasingly generating more trust among the population.

According to the latest data provided by the European Commission, currently 100 million Europeans use it and in recent years, its use has increased almost 4 percent and, within this growth, there is a clear increase in infants and children.

That is because many parents perceive this medicine as safe, harmless and without toxic effects. It can be given to newborn babies, after medical consultation.

What Is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine, which employs remedies lacking chemically active ingredients, in minimal doses. Its substances produce effects similar to the symptoms of the disease, which it is desired to combat, and thus the metabolic response is activated.

Homeopathy is one of the so-called ‘alternative medicines’ best known and enjoys greater acceptance. Along with acupuncture, it is the most popular practice. Good health care begins at home.

Today, because of the side effects of conventional medications, especially when given to infants or toddlers, many parents are turning to homeopathic medicines to treat pediatric, acute or chronic problems, such as allergies, diarrhea, and even behavioral disorders. Although homeopathic medicines have good results in children, before starting to use them, it is advisable to consult a specialist, especially to evaluate the clinical picture of the child.

Homeopathic Consultation

Consultation with a homeopath physician usually includes an extensive interview and an evaluation of the child’s symptoms. Previous health problems, family history, sleep patterns, food preferences, temperament, and behavioral patterns will be noted by the physician.

Homeopathic Treatment

Homeopathy treatments are effective not only in acute conditions but also in recurrent diseases that recur in children, often. Homeopathic medication works very well in the treatment of colic, influenza, conjunctivitis, asthma, eczema, allergies, etc.

The use of the homeopathic medicine requires a good knowledge of medical science and the patient’s picture for its correct application. Parents should never self-medicate babies and children. It is common for some parents to consult friends and family, who have children who have already used homeopathy, to cure what their child has.

 

In infants and children under 2 years, it is advisable to use homeopathy in globules to suck or take them dissolved in water or milk, in the bottle. Homeopathic drops are best suited for children over 2 years old, and dissolve in water, milk or juice, because of their alcohol content of 45 °. In chronic cases, homeopathy can be used for prolonged periods, as it lacks contraindications and toxic side effects.
