2018, November. Croup in a 10-month-old child

Parents were walking with the children along the ocean shore in Tenerife, and at night about 4:00 the younger boy developed croup, the child suddenly began to breathe with stridor. The boy’s mother was aware of several homeopathic preparations from our lectures, including about the properties of Aconitum 200, and she, at her own risk, gave a couple of peas to the baby once. The boy began to breathe normally after five minutes, it quickly helped the child, and his parents did not need to panic about the child choking and seeking emergency care for the child on an island in a foreign country. A father who did not really trust homeopathy came to the reception himself and spoke enthusiastically about what happened.

2017, January. Disturbance of the digestive system in a child

A 7-year-old boy could not eat normally, reduced weight and developmental lag (weight and height), since he was hampered by constant nausea. All examinations and consultations with eminent gastroenterologists did not resolve the question of diagnosis and did not help get rid of the constant nausea. The parents included in the diet: milk and all milk products, as well as products with gluten, which slightly improved the persistent fluid stools, but the child still experienced almost constant nausea during the last 5 years. In the words of the mother, for the first time, the child completely got rid of nausea and gained confidence while eating after Colchicum 200 once. For several months, there is no nausea and fear of eating. Child gained 2 kg per month. I continue to observe the case, the treatment will be continued, but homeopathy does something that a large dose of medicine cannot do.

2018, November. Acute pain in the abdomen of a 5-month-old child

In the words of mom, “Every day, it seems, my son is becoming more and more constrained and tense! Cries hysterically every time he wakes up! I hold him in my hands all the time, and on the second day even during the day he sleeps badly! When I cradle him in my arms, suddenly he starts crying hysterically, pulls his hands up, his head is thrown back and arches his back, stretches his legs into a string! It is very difficult to calm him down – I squat with him and get up, shake from side to side, sing, whisper, but he just cries! Sometimes he stops crying when I put my hand on his cheek and whisper in his ear. It is rarely possible to calm down by feeding. He became very, very tense, even lying down, palpating the stomach, it was quite tense. His stool is yellowish without any particular smell, there is gas.” Prescription: one dose of Dioscorea 200C-1x, saved the parents from sleepless nights, and the child from pain. Before the homeopathic treatment every evening and night was a real challenge for this young family.
