Homeopathy is Safe for Babies, Kids & Animals
We want our children to enjoy health in their bodies without all the chemicals and side effects that some remedies can bring about. Homeopathy is an option, but many parents are concerned about whether or not alternative treatments are safe. The answer that many experts give is the affirmative. In fact, homeopathic remedies can be given in the same dosage to children and babies as it is for adults. The same holds true for these remedies today as it did in the beginning.
In fact, homeopathic remedies are tested by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). This means that they come under scrutiny so that the user can be assured of the efficacy of the product.
Because they are developed from herbs, plants and other natural substance, they are without the side effects (if any) of traditional medicines. Also, the medicine is so dilute that it is not a problem for babies and children to digest it, but it is still effective in the body. Even over the long term, there are no ill side effects.
“Cindy Crawford told Oprah viewers that she uses homeopathy to treat bee stings, mosquito bites and bruises. “I also turn to homeopathic remedies for the treatment of indigestion, travel sickness, insomnia and hay fever just to name a few. Homeopathy offers a safe, natural alternative that causes no side effects or drug interactions.” Cindy Crawford
Don’t worry about injections. Medications are given in powder, pill or dropper form and are made to taste great to your child. They probably do not interfere with traditional medicines, but it is always best to inform your doctor if you are using homeopathic treatments. Homeopathy is used in children for digestive ailments, colds, ear infections, colic, vomiting, teething and fever, to name a few.
If you are considering a more natural treatment for your child, homeopathic medicines are often considered safe for children to use; however, it is always best to check with your health care practitioner as there may be negative side effects with some remedies.
Homeopathy is perfectly safe. This is because homeopathic medicines are made from a very small amount of the active ingredient. Two hundred years of practice, research and trials have proved the safety of this gentle system of medicine for both people and animals.
Unlike some conventional drugs, homeopathic medicines are non-addictive and have no dangerous side-effects. Homeopathy is safe to use for babies, children and pregnant and breastfeeding women, ideally under the supervision of a homeopathic doctor.
Members of the Faculty of Homeopathy are doctors and other statutorily registered healthcare professionals bound to act within the competence of their profession and their level of training and qualification in homeopathy. This means that a homeopathic medicine would not be prescribed when, for example, a conventional treatment is actually the better option for a patient.
