- The first is that it’s safe. Although many homeopathic medicines are prepared from plants and other substances which are poisonous in their raw form, by the time they have been prepared as medicines they are completely non-toxic and they be given safely to newborn children from the first day of life onwards.
- The second reason is that the remedies work by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms. Babies brand new immune systems respond really quickly to homeopathic treatment which to promotes and maintains comprehensive well-being.
- This leads to the third reason – understanding health and understanding people from a homeopathic perspective really helps us to make sense of not only our illnesses but the health and development of our children.
Homeopaths ask lots of questions
Homeopaths look the uniqueness of each baby to find them a personalised treatment. We look at how the mum felt emotionally and physically during the pregnancy. How was the birth? Did it go to plan or were there unexpected events? How did the mum feel during the birth? How was your baby straight after he or she was born? Was she able to breastfeed? How has her sleep been? What about his digestion? Any nappy rash? Any sniffles or colds? Is your baby hot or chilly? Does he sweat and if so where? All this information helps us to find the best constitutional remedy for your child.
