Homeopathy for child anxiety
Many times parents get confused about their child’s behavior – whether it is something to worry about or it is a normal behavior of that age. Some examples – when an 8 year old feel sick every school day morning or a 10 year old worry excessively about his/her performance in sports. Some children worry many things such as school, their health or safety of family members, or about future in general such as grades and family issues. To an extent some levels of anxiety are considered normal. Some children are naturally more timid and anxious than others, however in time this behavior will usually pass. But some children this anxiety may cause serious problems in their studies, social interaction, concentration, development and their performances.
Anxiety in kids may be presented as Generalized anxiety, Separation anxiety (very normal in young children and usually subsides with age) or OCD – anxiety takes the form of obsessions (excessively preoccupying thoughts) and compulsions (repetitive actions to try to relieve anxiety). Some kids it may be Phobias (These are intense fears of specific things) or PTSD (anxiety disorder results from a traumatic past experience such as separation from a parent or a fright.)
Homeopathy for child anxiety
Homeopathy may be helpful to many of these children. Kid’s mind and body are very delicate. They need a gentle treatment, a treatment without causing much disturbance in their immune system and not damaging sensitive nervous system. In Homeopathy we are using ultra diluted natural medicines and they cause less harmful toxic effect to their delicate brain or nervous system.
Homeopathic medicines are selected taking into consideration of child’s individual peculiarities, their emotional picture, physical presentation, medical and treatment history and nutritional status. Sometimes deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals can also be a trigger for their abnormal behavior. The treatment is based on a complete evaluation of the child symptom pattern and intensity of symptoms. Homeopathy also addresses other underlying causes of problem such as inherited conditions, environmental and emotional stress. In most cases causative factors are more important than the symptoms.
