5 Best Homeopathic Remedies for Kids to have on hand at all times!

untitled-design-1If you are new to natural remedies , the one class of remedies you will want to learn about is homeopathy! It is a game changer when it comes to kids. I have seen it work over and over in my kids so quickly and effectively. I had been a pediatric nurse for over 15 years before I ever heard about it or even understood how it worked. I was a little hesitant myself at first, but after I started using it in my own kids regularly, I became a little addicted to its benefits because there have been plenty of minor illnesses taken care of quickly and easily without having to resort to toxic prescription or over the counter drugs. We even used it for regressive bedwetting with much success!!! If you have never heard of it, do start with reading this former blog post on homeopathy to understand a little more about how it works, and if you have been dabbling in it at all and just aren’t sure where to start here are my 5 top remedies to have on hand for kids and the common ailments they face! I get a lot of people ask me where to start and what to buy with homeopathic remedies. I would love for everyone to have a complete 100 remedy kit, but if that is not in the budget, I would suggest starting with the 5 listed here.

The FAB FIVE Homeopathic Remedies for kids!

Arnica

This is the ultimate trauma remedy. Child falls off the swing and takes a hard hit? Arnica is very helpful at the first sign of injury to help mitigate symptoms of swelling and pain. ( of course, take your child to the ER if it is a serious injury!) but Arnica can defintely help the minor ones and allow your child to keep playing! I think every mom should have a little arnica on hand at all times!

Belladonna

Think to use homeopathic belladonna when there is a sudden onset of fever, red cheeks, hot and dry, sore throat, ear ache, heat stroke and inflammation. This is the go to remedy for fever in our house, and am happy to say we have not had to use any Motrin or Tylenol to help with fevers. (Fever is your friend and I would suggest avoiding Tylenol like the plague,by the way, read a little more here)

Chamomilla

This is my number one choice for teething remedy. When you have a baby that is in screaming pain, irritable and sleepless chomomilla can save the day. The green slimy watery diarrhea that often accompanies teething can also be mitigated by this lovely remedy. You can find in combination homeopathic remedies or on it’s own. However you use it, don’t be afraid to repeat it as needed until you see some relief. It can be helpful for colicky babies too!

Hepar Sulph

Hepar Sulph is a great go-to remedy to combat infections- particularly ones that have an odor (but doesn’t have to have odor necessarily). It serves people well with sore throats, coughs, ear aches, boils and dental abscesses, acne and even mastitis. It’s funny little notion is that it is most helpful for people who are affected by cold wind or drafts.

Pulsatilla

You know those whiny kids, that cry easily and are super clingy? Then they catch some kind of cold, cough or each ache.. then doubly whiny! Pulsatilla can save the day here! I have used it several times with ear infections and with in a few hours, my daughter was back to sleep with no complaints and back to school the next day. It can be very helpful in colds with profuse runny nose!

Don’t just take my word for it!

Do you have any remedy recommendations for bedwetting? We’ve been struggling for a while and hope homeopathy would help.

    Yes, you can start with a remedy called “Bedwetting” from Newton Labs . I would suggest giving that a try for a month or so to see if you get any results. IF not consult a trained homeopath in your area!!
