Homeopathy is ideal for babies and children as it is a gentle yet highly effective system of medicine. The mildly sweet pills, powders or liquids are easy to dispense and are more palatable than many conventional medicines. The highly diluted natural substances that form homeopathic remedies mean that they are safe to use in the very young, including new born babies. More tan that, homeopathy can raise the immunity of your children to help deal with illness throughout their childhood.
Homeopathy not only helps when your child is ill. It can also help prevent illness and give support through difficult periods of their life.
What is Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that has been practised all over the world for over 200years. Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, animal substances, minerals and salts and are diluted to such a high extent that few or no molecules remain in the medicine. They work at an energetic level, stimulating the body's own healing ablieties - rather like a message to the immune system - and are prescribed on the principle of "like cures like". A good example is where the remedy Allium cepa (onion) is prescribed for hayfever when the eyes are stinging and hot, which is similar to what happens when you cut up an onion.
