Treating Allergies with Homeopathy
We have two children Zachary aged three and Rosie aged eighteen months and they have multiple food and chemical allergies. Until recently Zachary carried an epi-pen.
When Zachary was born he failed to grow on breastmilk and suffered from constant vomiting, we looked to the NHS for help and in our hearts we suspected an intolerance to Lactose (even Human lactose). Unfortunately the NHS (UK) did not share our view and carried out many tests on Zachary, some of them intrusive, until we insisted that a non-dairy formula be prescribed (neocate).
Once on this formula Zachary thrived and grew normally but continued to experience allergic reactions to all of the foods we introduced during the weaning process, the only food he could tolerate was Organic Rice.
During our second pregnancy ( Baby Rosie) Ashley attended a session on Homeopathy run by Jane Lindsay, this was a revelation to us. For a long time we had no faith in the NHS and ‘conventional’ medicine as it relied on pumping the body full of chemicals, when you have a child with multiple food allergies this made no sense to us.
What drew us to Homeopathy was the principle that by providing the body with a gentle nudge in the right direction the body could heal itself and thus become stronger in the process. This was ideal as we have also chosen to not immunise our children as it seems crazy to give a young child a disease at such an early age, actually weakening their immune system
Before Homeopathy a typical reaction for Zachary would last a period of three to four hours of screaming followed by four weeks of problems like stomach cramps and constipation. Since we now use homeopathy a typical reaction can be over within one hour, if we spot the symptons early and give Zachary the appropriate remedy.
Zachary has accepted Homeopathy to the extent that he can tell us which remedy he needs when he does not feel good.
Since we started using homeopathy Zachary’s list of safe foods has increased ten-fold and now has a complete and balanced diet, he is a really healthy strong boy full of energy and life. Zachary would not be here without the use of Homeopathy.
Jane has been wonderful in giving us the tools to look after our family’s health as well as providing ongoing help and support, we even called her from the USA whilst on holiday. We count Jane as one of our friends. Our whole family has benefited from Homeopathy. Ashley has overcome infertility and we are pregnant with our third child. Rosie has overcome some potential menstrual problems that she would have experienced later in life. Stephen has overcome emotional issues relating to some major life changes.
I cannot imagine a life without homeopathy, it works. My family is strong, healthy and happy and I recommend Homeopathy to everyone.
