Children with Anxiety: Homeopathic Care & Nurturing Strong Connections.

Children with Anxiety: Homeopathic Care & Nurturing Strong Connections.



Homeopathic treatment is useful in resolving anxiety in children.   Anxiety in children has the potential to significantly limit life & development.  Childhood is the time to treat such anxiety so normal development & freedom can be gained as early as possible.

Parenting that prioritises connection, alongside homeopathic treatment for anxiety can enable children to be more resilient in situations that create disconnection and stress.  This can help with school refusal / school phobia, or enabling a child to take part in activities and opportunities they might not have been able to access.  The education system is not a perfect environment for some children, but gaining more resilience can enable them to fare as well as others.

Anxiety may be ‘obvious’ or may present with signs ranging from obsessive compulsive behaviours, sleep problems (insomnia, nightmares, etc), irritability, inattention, physical symptoms such as stomach aches, headaches, etc and erratic or excessive reactions.

Separation anxiety

is characterised by clinging to parents and reluctance to separate. This is normal in young children, but may cause a difficulty for older children who wish (*legal notes) or need to be in school.  It can be one of the reasons for school refusal / school phobia. The child may be able to talk about the reasons for feeling anxious, depending on age and language skills, and individual levels of awareness and trust.  Homeopathy may help with feelings of loss, a tendency to separation anxiety and with healing after difficult events.  It cannot remove a bully but it may enable the child to be more resilient and more able to talk about it.

Generalised anxiety

is characterised by excessive worry and anxiety across a variety of situations that does not seem to be the result of identified causes. Homeopathic treatment is intended to give children freedom from this condition and enable them to develop and explore in comfort.

Post-Traumatic Stress

can occur after traumatic experiences or frights, but may come about as a build up of smaller events in which the child feels in peril or feels others are in peril.  Symptoms may include anxiety or panic attacks, outbursts of rage and feelings of reliving the experience.  These are often the simplest types of anxiety to treat homeopathically as the nature of the event and the response can give important clues to a homeopathic remedy.  🙂

Social phobia

is excessive fear and anxiety about being in social situations, such as in groups and crowds.  Fears and phobias frequently respond beautifully to homeopathic treatment. (*legal notes)

Obsessive-compulsive disorder

includes repetitive thoughts that are difficult to control (obsessions) or the uncontrollable need to repeat specific acts, such as hand washing or placing objects in the same arrangement (compulsions).    Again, there are specific remedies that are very effective in treatment of OCD.
