This article is a guest post by Joette Calabrese. This is the first in a series on homeopathy for infants and children.
What so many folks forget is that the human body is a miraculous machine. Our children are actually capable of great resilience and healing facility. Over-the-counter and prescribed medications suppress these abilities. This explains why, when antibiotics and other drugs are used to “control” or “manage” symptoms of one illness, another, more sobering illness or a worsening of the first illness usually follows close behind. Indeed, ear infections frequently return after antibiotic and acetaminophen are used.
So, if you’re tired of these drugs, you’re in good company. Moms throughout the U.S. and world are tired, too! And they’re turning to homeopathy. It’s a centuries old method that empowers mothers.
In fact, nearly 4 million U.S. adults and about 900,000 children use homeopathic remedies each year.
With homeopathy, moms are gaining the (much needed!) confidence to treat themselves and family for simple first aid and common illnesses such as colds, flu’s, ear infections, pink eye and more.
(I’m so excited to be offering a free webinar that will teach mothers and others how to avoid the mistakes that many make in treating their children. Go to www.HomeopathyWorks.net and sign up for my free E-zine and we’ll email you all the information you need.
Homeopathic remedies, unlike medications, do not carry side effects and even though they’re regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, you will not find that ominous small print, warning of dangers. That’s because there aren’t any. As long as the remedies are used as directed, they act gently and politely.
Moreover, though there are thousands of homeopathic remedies on the market, not one has ever been removed by the FDA because of detrimental effects! This speaks loudly for homeopathy’s safety, particularly since these remedies have been regulated by the government since the FDA’s inception in the 1940’s.
So, just how do these reputable, homeopathic remedies work?
Simply put, our body is capable of coming to balance (health), if given the correct stimulus. This is achieved by using a remedy that is chosen not for the disease, but rather the person who is experiencing the disease.
This means that the choice is specifically tailored to the person.
Let’s say three children, who are in school together get a fever. Although it may seem that they’ve all gotten the same “bug”, in reality they each present fever differently. One child might get a 104° fever with febrile delusions and panic, requiring the remedy, Belladonna 30. Another might have a fever of 101°, a stomach ache and clinginess, which would lead to a sure choice of Pulsatilla 30. Yet another child might be chilly, angry and have diarrhea with his fever. This child would profit from Nux vomica 30.
By stimulating the body’s ability to bring itself to economy, each of these youngsters will not only resolve the fever within hours or a day or so, but they’ll also be left in a better state than before the fever presented!
And if the child is prone to fevers, he will be less likely to have another one in the near future. However, if the illness is repeated, that same remedy will often work again. Generally, the body will resolve the propensity for this illness and it will likely not return.
Why wouldn’t a mom want homeopathy in her house? What could be better than ridding a child of his fever, not by suppressing it and inviting the illness to return later, but by removing it gently, safely and without ever having had to leave the safety of your own home?
Self sufficiency is a goal many of us want to attain. Homeopathy is the ultimate road toward self sufficiency. I invite you to join me and the millions of others who have eliminated the danger of superfluous drugs with safe and powerful homeopathic medicines. They offer the promise of restorative health.
