This is an article which explains some childhood diseases that can treat through homeopathy


There are many parents who prefer homeopathic treatment for their children when they fall in ill. The main reason why they prefer this treatment is the medicines in homeopathy usually is not harmful for babies. Here are some common diseases that affect children and can treat with homeopathy.

Whooping Cough

Whooping cough is a spreading disease which can be passed from person to person through the air when the patient sneeze or cough. It is also known as pertussis. It starts as a common cold with light fever and dry cough and the cough gradually becomes more severe and after seven to ten days the cough turns into 'coughing spells'. It badly affects the normal function of the respiratory system.

People in any age can get this disease but it usually affects the children who are below eight years old. Whooping cough is very dangerous for infants. The coughing spells can be so bad that the infants face difficulties when they breathe, eat and drink. Once the child gets this disease, it is less chance to get it again. When the cough becomes hard, the child can't breathe properly and the heart beats also become slow. As a result the child's face becomes red in colour. When the child faces difficulties to breathe as a result of continues cough he/she makes the noise 'whoop'. This is the reason why whooping cough got its name.

The patient may cough two to fifty times per day. If blood is passed into the head of the patient as a result of whooping cough can make damage to the small blood vessels. As a result there may be a blood clot in the brain. In some children there are blood clots in the white part of their eyes (also known as sclera). Sometimes because of whooping cough there may be possibilities for diseases like bronchopneumonia, tuberculosis and diarrhea in some children.

Usually it takes three months to get complete cure from this disease. So in some villages whooping cough is also known as 90 day cough. But if we start homeopathy in the beginning stages of this disease, it will get cure within two weeks. Pertassin is the best medicine in homeopathy for treating whooping cough which is made from the bacteria who makes whooping cough. The treatment will begin by giving the first dose in the starting stage of this disease and should continue to give one or two doses each day. Totally the patient should get thirty doses. At the same time, we can use pertassin as a preventive medicine for whooping cough. Instead of this, there are number of other medicines available in homeopathy to treat this disease.


A disease which affects the airways that carry air to and from our lungs is called asthma. Asthma is a disease which can be found in children as well as in adults. It is the most common chronic disease found in children. For some people, it is not a serious problem. But for some others, it can be a very serious and life threatening problem. Symptoms of this disease vary from person to person. Difficulty in breathing, large amount of mucus inside the chest, chest tightness or pain, a whistling or wheezing sound while breathing, coughing etc. are some of the common symptoms of asthma. If the reason for asthma is any heart diseases it is called cardiac asthma and if any other reasons are behind it, then it is called bronchial asthma.

We can't say any single reason for asthma. There are multiple factors that may contribute this condition. One of the reasons for asthma is hereditary. Asthma is a disease which can be passed from generation to generation. Children with family history of asthma have more likely to develop asthma than those who don't have. Some people are allergic to some substances like smoke from cigarettes, dust mites, pollen, animal fur and feather, household sprays, paints, perfumes and so on. These kinds of allergies can turn into asthma. Diseases like rheumatism, gout, bright disease etc. can turn into asthma. Asthma can be occurred as a result of whooping cough and measles. When asthma reaches in serious condition, there may be blood clot inside the lugs and bronchial tubes. Asthma is a long lasting disease and so there may be largest amount of mucus inside the bronchial tube. Bronchial tube is very important structure for the lungs to function properly. But the excess amount of mucus can make damage to this tube. It can lead to a disease called emphysema.

Homeopathy has a history of successful prevention of asthma especially in children. This is the only system of medicine that can completely cure your children from asthma. If the patient can take the medicines in time in accordance with the prescription of the doctor, there should be a quick relief within few weeks. But if the reason for asthma is hereditary, the patient should continue the treatment for a long period. If your child is suffering from asthma, find out a brilliant and efficient doctor and start treatment immediately.

Febrile Convulsions or Fits

Febrile convulsion or fit is a very common disease among children from six months to six years of age and it automatically stops after six years. It occurs when the temperature of the body increases rapidly due to fever. Sudden disturbance of the function of the nervous system is the reason for fit. Though it is frightening to watch, it is not as dangerous as it seen. There is no brain damage, epilepsy or death due to this disease. Most febrile convulsions last for few seconds, but sometimes they may last for 15 minutes. Children are most likely to have fits, if any members of the family have the same. The common symptoms of this disease is lack of consciousness, unawareness of the surroundings, jerking or twitching body especially the arms and legs, eye rolling (only the white parts are visible), breathing difficulty, foaming at the mouth and so on.

Treatments are available in homeopathy for fits. You can control this disease by using medicines like Cina, Belldona, Acthusa etc. Consult a smart and efficient homeopathic doctor and take medicines in time. Certainly your child may have relief.

Frequent Fever, Mucus or Thick Saliva

Children's fever with thick saliva is extremely common. In most cases fevers are not harmful. Our body raises its temperature above normal level to fight against harmful germs. This is a disease affected in children from six months to six years of age. Fevers with cold usually make irritation in children. They can't sleep or feed well. They lose all their interest because of tiredness. So if your child suffers with fever, take him/her to the hospital or consult a pediatrician as soon as possible. According to the prescription of the doctor, give all the medicines including antibiotic on time. Your child will get well soon within two or three weeks. But the same disease may repeat again after few days. In some children, it is a continuous process till the age of six even though they treated for a long period. As a result of continuous fever, children may get tired and it may increase the tension of the parents.

In homeopathy, there are treatments for frequent fever. Medicines are available to reduce the largest production of mucus in the chest. It will in turn get reduce the breathing problem in children. Through homeopathic treatment, numbers of children are getting complete relief from fever and other problems related to this disease.


Measels is an infectious disease which mainly affects children. But it can occur at any age. This is a disease caused by virus and can spread easily from one person to another. The measels virus can travel through the air and it spreads when the infected person sneezes, coughs or shares food or drinks. Once you suffered because of measles, chance is very rare to repeat it again. Usually measles starts with high fever and the whole body of the affected person starts to shiver. There may be swelling in their entire body. The fever last for three to four days. After that red rashes appear throughout the body. They feel irritation because of skin burns and itches. Both of their eyes may be filled with pusses. Some patients get cough with this disease. Losing water from the body is another problem of this disease. In some children, there is diarrhea and vomiting with measles. This disease creates many difficulties in children and their body becomes weak day by day. Some children are affected with whooping cough as the continuation of this disease.

Homeopathic medicines are often effective to treat measles. If we can give correct doze of medicines in each two hours according to the doctors' prescription, children will get quick cure from this disease. Currently measles are very rare because most of the new born babies receive MMR vaccine, the vaccine which prevents measles. But some parents refuse to give this vaccine because of fearing the side effect that it makes.

Actually homeopathy treatments are always safe for children. There is no side effect for using these medicines. Children always like to eat this medicine because of its sweetness. So there is no need to force them to have medicine. These medicines are very easy to use and never make any allergy to children. All doctors are not alike. Some of them are not efficient to find out the disease and some of them fail to give appropriate medicines for a particular disease. If we can find out an efficient doctor in homeopathy, complete relief from all kinds of childhood diseases are sure.
