Ref Kadwa: Homeo advise for childMy daughter is 13+ years old. The pressing concern is a stress fracture in her right foot second metatarsal that is not healing fully. The stress fracture happened in Feb 2017 . She learns ballet and in Nov 2016 started taking lessons wearing pointe shoes(tight fitting shoes with wooden box at the toe end, during dance she would stand tip toe on the box). She wore a CAM boot to heal fracture. She was in the boot until May 2017(a lot longer than it usually takes for a stress fracture to heal). In September 2017, she started dance lessons again, she complained of stabbing pain that comes and goes in her right foot. After the pain goes, she would have dull achy sensation in the area. Also complained of pain in the web between big toe and second toe. MRI shows no stress fracture, but where the previous stress fracture occurred, that area has a thickening of cortex of the bone. That should have thinned out after bone healed, it has not. Also there is fluid in between big toe and second toe that is giving pain. She is back in CAM boot since last 3 weeks, using crutches to prevent weight going on her foot. She still gets stabbing pain that comes and goes.
My daughter has flourosis on her teeth, teeth enamel has vertical ridges and white spots. She is 4ft 9" tall. We are hoping she will grow atleast 3" more. She has a number of food allergies, can get anaphylaxis from exposure(even the smell in air) to chickpeas, nuts(all nuts except almonds and hazelnuts). She is also allergic to wheat(air borne), sesame(severe hives, vomiting etc), milk and milk products(milk can be consumed with a straw, but can get lots of hives if milk touches skin, tongue will itch after drinking, she has to wash off with lots of water. She cannot take yogurt or butter as it gives throat itching, but clarified butter is tolerated), garlic(severe stomach pain), amaranth, buckwheat(both give stomach pain/upset), bananas(ripe bananas give her throat itching, small asian variety bananas are tolerated. Cooked raw bananas are ok). She can eat moderate amounts of potatoes but a little more can cause vomiting. Anything oily or deep fried is tolerated in small amounts. Large amounts can cause severe hives, itching, vomiting, immediate diarrhea etc. She has been diagnosed with asthma, that gets triggered by cold air, cold temperature or cold/cough symptoms. Over time, her asthma has improved. She is also allergic to latex, may be to some varieties of environmental mold. She got her first period Aug 2016, and gets period regularly without any discomfort.
Our pressing concern right now is for her bone to heal fully and the fluid/inflammation between her right big toe and second toe. We would love for her allergies to go away and for her to be safe around chickpeas, nuts, wheat etc. Thank you for your advise.

♥ kadwa 3 months agoRef:Kadwa - My daughter finished the homeo medicines you suggested. Her cast on right foot has been removed today, there is no pain in the web between toes or on the spot where the stress fracture was. She is now focused on regaining ankle and muscle strength. Her sensitivity to allergic foods(nuts, chickpeas, wheat, garlic, red lentils, milk) has worsened a bit. We accidentally brought home a peanut dish and put it in a open bowl on dining table. As soon as she entered the room, she said she feels like wheezing. We immediately threw the dish out of our property. For a week after that, she would complain of wheezing starting up the moment she entered the room. She had a similar reaction to some food that we brought home, made of chickpeas. For almost a year, she has been waking up with puffy bags under her eyes, the bags clear up almost fully as the day progresses. Since last two days, she has been waking up with her left eyelid swollen and shut. No crustiness or pain or watery eyes or reddness.The skin around eyes are dark and dry, she has burning sensation there. After, few hours, swelling subsides. When she took Calc Carbonica, there was improvement in the bags under eyes for 2-3 days, after that it was back to how it has been since March 2017. Another recent development is frequent headaches that sometimes can last upto 2 hours. We recently saw her pediatrician who examined her and said the nasal lining is dry and inflammed, perhaps due to allergies. She recently told us that her heart races sometimes and something strange with heart beat happens. She is not sure if it's skipping a beat or adding a beat. The pediatrician heard heart murmur and suggested we follow up with a cardiologist. Heart murmur was heard on annual check up in 2010 and 2006. In 2006 we did an ultrasound test and found everything to be ok. ALso, she is frequently dehydrated, she does not want to go to bathroom at school, so she does not drink water all day. SO there may be some chronic dehydration contributing to racing heart beat. Also there is small improvement in hair fall since the treatment with Calc Carb. She was loosing hair in bunches, specially after washing. Now hair fall has reduced a bit. Hair still tangles up a lot.
