I really love the homeopathic teething drops work great for adoptive son. I also love the homeopathic ear drops for my ear pain because I get ear pain a lot during the cold months of the year. I have used homeopathic ear drops are good for children but I really do want the doctor to check and make sure there isn't an infection there.

It is so nice to learn about all the natural remedies for babies and children. I would much rather use these than more chemical and toxic remedies.

Do you have any suggestions for eczema on a 4 month old? I'd much rather use homeopathic medicine but do not know where to begin. I have tried Florasone but that does not work at all in comparison to hydrocortisone.

I have always been skeptical of natural remedies, but this makes me a little more open to it.

I have used and trusted homeopathic remedies ever since I had Mono in high school and a good friend's mother was a licensed/certified Homeopathic Doctor (and MD): she treated me and changed my life forever using homeopathic treatments as well as other natural remedies. I not only recovered with remarkable speed but emerged healthier and stronger and learned a great deal about "alternative medicine." Not all "natural" remedies are created equal and all should be approached with caution and quality information. But Homeopathy is not some trend or gimmick - it is a very old, widely respected, scientifically sound and I believe with my whole heart SAFE alternative to most OTC and many prescription remedies. As this video explains, these natural remedies ARE safe enough for a baby. Chamomile should be a staple in every household. Calcarea Phosphorica, Belladonna and Pulsatilla are a must if you have a baby or young children in your home. In my experience they are MUCH safer AND more effective than the medicines you see on TV and lining the shelves of most pharmacies!

This is great!! I actually thought about doing something like this but did not know if I could. Now I know that it can be done and it actually is called something (that it actually exists).

We use a lot of homeopathic remedies for our little ones, especially teething tablets and cold tablets. They work so well. Excited to have the info on Chamomile!

Homeopathic medicine has been dismissed by scientific research as ineffective for any condition. It is however not harmful to take, except to your bank account, so if you feel you have to use it, please use it in conjunction to REAL medicine. Especially when it comes to young children. The homeopathy isle is the reason I cannot go to Whole Foods anymore. I cannot give money to a shill for charlatans and quacks. Stop selling FAKE medicine to parents!
