FAQ on Using Homeopathy with Children
Why should my family try homeopathy? Homeopathy is used by more than 500 million people worldwide for a wide range of ailments. The system is popular because it's natural, it works, it's non-habit forming and it's comprehensive with no side effects. What's more- it's safe for the very youngest and oldest among us with a safety record unparalleled in the history of medicine. It's a great option for family use because it's easily adaptable for self-care.
Is it safe and are there any side effects? Homeopathic medicine when used as directed is generally recognized as safe for babies, children, pregnant women and adults. However, if you are pregnant or nursing, we do recommend that you consult with a licensed practitioner.
Are all homeopathic remedies safe for children or must they be labeled specifically for children? Although some homeopathic products are marketed for children, the homeopathic remedies are the same whether for adults or children and thus they can all be used safely with children. However, it is always wise to consult with your licensed practitioner or reference book regarding potency and dosage information.
