We are well into September and the kids are all back to school! We are back to routines of early mornings, busy days, extra-curricular activities and lots of homework too. But has it gone smoothly? Has your child settled in yet or are there signs they still need help readjusting?
For the most part the transition is usually painless and children are full of enthusiasm and excitement as they start or return to school. But for others this change can be overwhelming as the child struggles with the change.
The good news whether your concern relates to physical or emotional worries, is that Homeopathy can offer a range of excellent supports to help your child march healthy, happy and confidently through their school years.
Here are some of the ways in which Homeopathy can help your child:
Coping with these emotional struggles can also put pressure on the physical body so there can often be accompanying symptoms such as bedwetting, nightmares, sleep problems, stomach aches, skin rashes, or ear, nose and throat infections that keep recurring. It is always important to be vigilant and firstly ensure your child has been medically examined to rule out serious illnesses.
Children are continuously exposed to bacteria and viruses, but a child with a strong immune system tends to “bounce back” quickly after an illness. Conversely, a child with a weakened immune system can be more vulnerable to colds, flu or more serious illnesses. If you find that your child is always sick and has become stuck in a pattern of recurrent illnesses, such as colds and coughs, throat and ear infections, then consider Homeopathy to help build your child’s immune response. Boosting your child’s immune system and striving for “prevention rather than cure” is a great way to build up your child’s natural resistance.
At times I often see parents and guardians who have been hugely impact emotionally as they come to terms with the child’s absence from the home and what it means for them. While it is not surprising to feel emotional at this time, when the feelings become “stuck”, Homeopathy can be very successful in gently helping a person move forward as one mum explains here.
“I was so anxious about my five children at school and worrying will they be alright, will they cope, will anyone bully them and the anxiety has taken over my life. It is relentless, it’s affecting my health and it can go on for months.
I especially dread their first day back at school. Not this time! After seeing Eileen for a few sessions and taking my remedy the change has been amazing. Instead of getting myself in a state I have been absolutely fine and I have been able to separate my experience from theirs. With a little anticipation which only lasted a few minutes I was able to see them off and I’m enjoying watching them grow without the prolonged upset and worry.
I am so impressed with Homeopathy I wish I had known about it years ago!” Joanne, Dublin 20
Homeopathy for Behaviour Difficulties and Temper Tantrums
My daughter’s behaviour had been really bad for about 2 years with temper tantrums and we had already attended a child psychologist. Our first consultation with Eileen took over 2 hours and I felt that the consultations whilst for my daughter also helped me greatly as I got everything off my chest and Eileen was a great listener. I noticed a change in my daughter’s behaviour straight away after the remedies and my family commented that she “was like a different child”. My daughter also had asthma since she was 2½ years old but she no longer suffers from any symptoms. It is now 2 years since we first attended Eileen and we do go back now and again if we have any bad patches but things are definitely 100 times better in our house.” Tracy, Dublin 12
Homeopathy for Temper Tantrums, Anxiety and Chest Infections
“I also bring my 6 year old son. … Along with the tantrums he suffered from recurrent chest infections and congestion, he was also always very hard on himself and got very frustrated very easily. Now, although we have the sniffles and all the normal childhood ailments, he has settled and grown into himself and life at home is a lot calmer “. Karen, Dublin 12
