Considering homeopathy for kids

Baby and his older brother

Many families integrate homeopathy into their regular lives. Parents, kids, babies and even pets alike can benefit from natural remedies. Read on to better understand homeopathic solutions and benefits, for a range of daily ailments.

What is homeopathy?

This therapeutic approach was invented at the end of the 18th century by Samuel Hahnemann, a German doctor. He noticed that certain prescribed remedies to treat certain symptoms could cause these same symptoms on a healthy individual. He concluded from this study that “like cures like” and “infinitesimal,” which are two of the founding principles of homeopathy.

At its core, homeopathy consists in creating remedies based on highly diluted natural ingredients, causing a defensive reaction of the body and stimulating self-healing.

Proven successful against the epidemic of scarlet fever in Germany in the 19XXs, homeopathy became more common in hospitals, and many countries integrated the practice into their traditional health system. In fact, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Montreal was previously a homeopathic hospital.

Homeopathy is medicine-based on active natural substances—vegetable, animal or mineral. Among these substances, five are particularly common in homeopathic remedies:

– Arnica Montana, against muscular and articular pain

– Valeriana Officinalis, to calm

– Chamomilla Vulgaris, against pain

– Nux Vomica, against insomnia, digestive or behavioral disorders

– Ignatia Amara, against stress
