How to increase apetite in child

A baby 32months old ,99 Cm height 12 kg weight with very lean & thin structure has no apetite at all. She is not interested to take any type of cereals and vegetables in any form but agree to take banana & apple and also milk sometimes. she is very much fond of egg all the time. she is constipated since birth , even she does not have any urge to pass stool. Her tongue is whitish all the time . she is very energetic ,if not attack my fever. But recurrent episodes of cold & cough with high fever in every two or three months makes her very weak.
I request this forum to suggest
1. How to incease her apetite so that she can eat and drink all the required constituents for her physical growth .
2.How to stop her recurrent episodes of cold and cough with fever
3. As the above symptoms match with her mother's childhood life, is it a genetic disease or a heredity phenomena ?

Please try calc. carb 6-- 3 doses on a day and report after a week.

Dr Maheeru,
Thanks. Kindly let me know whether Cal carb-6 wiil be in pill form or liquid form . Will this remedy stop the recurrent episodes of cold and cough with fever in near future ?
 
ranjandr last decade
You can procure either pills or oral liquid form. One dose is equal to 3 pills/drops roughly. Give the child 3 doses on a single day and observe and report. Especially report the subtle changes in emotional state, sleep, energy levels on 2nd day after the dose and after a week. I'd expect this remedy to help her overall that includes raising immunity levels to cope with colds/coughs and fever.

Dr Maheeru,
Thanks. I can not understand whether the remedey will be given only for a day or 3 doses on a single day for seven days contituously .
 
ranjandr last decade
3 doses on a single day. That's all-- no more doses on following days. Further dosing or upping the potency only after seeing your report.

Dr Meheeru,
As suggested by you , calcarea carb-6, three doses were given on 11 May. It seems that the remedy has shown some improvement. There was no cold & cough during last eight days, apetite is slightly increased, the child is now asks for food and energy level is also improved slightly. kindly advise me further alongwith any restriction on food items.

Hi Ranjan

After 14 days from the last dose, start giving the child calc. carb 6 in wet dose. You can prepare wet dose by putting 3 pills or drops from calc. carb 6 vial into a 500 ml mineral water bottle. Just before every dose you need to shake the water bottle vigorously for 7 times. Dosage will be 4 drops from this bottle twice daily for next 2 weeks. If there's aggravation in between stop and report otherwise report after 2 weeks.

Also procure Calc. carb 30 and Calc. carb 200 for future purpose.

You can give usual food to the child. Just make sure that child doesn't intake anything 20 minutes before and after the administration of the remedy.

Dr Maheeru,
Thanks. calc carb-6 will be comtiued as per your suggestion.In the meantime , it is to intimate you that the child has a strong desire to take egg and ice cream daily . Is it ok ?
 
ranjandr last decade
Give eggs and icecream in moderate quantities. With the action of the medicine, gradually the craving will come down to normal.
 
maheeru last decade
Dr Maheeru,
Thanks for your advice. Cal carb-6 will be given after 14 days . Kindly inform me the remedy if fever or cold & cough occurs any time within the period .
 
ranjandr last decade
Hi Ranjan

It's less likely that cold and cough will occur when the remedy is being taken, but if something occurs, post the details in the event of acute episode, so that we can choose a medicine for that episode.

Any way have Belladonna handy, because people responding to calc. carb will most likely be benefitted by belladonna for many acute problems.

Dr Maheeru,
Cal carb-6 in wet doses are given for last 10 days. It seems that apetite and energy level are increased. Now, the child always asks for food .There was no could & cough till today. But her sleeping period is considerably increased .The child sleeps more than eight ours at night and it is very difficult to awake her in the morning . Is it any affect of the remedy ?
Further , kindly confirm whether I can use 20 ml bottle in place of 500 ml bottle ,as suggested by you
 
ranjandr last decade
Hi Ranjan

A child in 1-3 age bracket's average sleep hours is anywhere between 12 to 15 hours. So don't bother about her sleep for more than 8 hours.

How have you been giving her remedy all these 10 days? In 20 ml bottle or 500 ml bottle? 20 ml bottle is not advisable. It ought to be 500 or 400 or 600 ml.

Stop the remedy on 14th day. She should do fine.
 
maheeru last decade
Dr Maheeru,
Thanks for your quick reply . The remedy to the child was actually given from a 100 ml bottle for 10 days. Now the child is out of station for 5 days but her mother has forgotten to take the medicine alongwith her. Kindly advice me whether a fresh remedy preparing with 400 ml mineral water and 3 drops of Cal carb-6 will be given to her after her arrival or the earlier remedy prepared from 100 ml bottla will be continued for the balance 4 days .
I am extremly sorry for using 100 ml bottle inplace of 500 ml bottle for prepartion of remedy .
As per your advise , Cal carb
-30 and 200 are also procurred .
kindly advice further
 
ranjandr last decade
Ok Ranjan in that case, after the child's back-- complete 4 days remedy from the same 100 ml bottle(should be properly shaken before every dose). In between we can't change the bottle. Then observe her condition for next 14 days and let me know. If necessary after that period, 30 c shall be given to the child.
 
maheeru last decade
Dr Maheeru,
Thanks. I have noted your suggestions and will give you the feed back after complition of the prescribed period .
 
ranjandr last decade
DrMaheeru,
As suggested by you, no medicines was given to the child since last 15 days after Cal Carb-6 . During this period the child seems to be OK.
The child is now suffering from dry cough with slight increase in body temperature since last 3-4 days. Yesterday night there was vomiting during cough. One dose 2 pills Belladona-30 is given to day .
Kindly suggest further.
 
ranjandr last decade
Hi Ranjan

Prepare a wet dose solution of belladonna 200(if its not available then with 30 potency) and give a dose every 2 hours for next 48 hours. Before every dose bottle should be shaked for 10 times.

How did this episode came on? Was there any exciting cause? If the above remedy doesn't relieve more details will be required about this.
 
maheeru last decade
*shaken
 
maheeru last decade
Dr. Maheeru,
Belladona 200 in wet dose is started from this evening . Feed back will be given after 48 hours as desired by you .
It seems that this episode has occured from the fellow class students of the school who is suffering from cold & cough since last 5-6 days.

I will come back to you after two days with detailed report.
 
ranjandr last decade
Dr Maheeru,
The course of Belladona is completed.The symptoms are not aggravated since last two days . Now the body temperature is normal, there is occasional nasal discharge and cough, it seems that the throat and nasal track is full of mucous.
Is it required to continue Belladona further ?
Is it required to use Cal Carb again to boost up the apetite further ?

Waiting for your advise .
 
ranjandr last decade
Taper down the doses of belladonna wet dose. Give 3 more doses on a day and stop. Wait for another day without medicine and report.
 
maheeru last decade
Dr. Maheeru,
Belladona is stopped since last two days. There is no nasal discharge nor any fever but occasional dry cough is there. The tongue is found to be whitish coating at the back with tiny red erruptions on whole tongue .What is the indication of such erruption on tongue ? Is it reflect the poor digestion system ? The apetite is found to be in varying nature . I think child's immunity level is still low .
Kindly suggest further course of action .
 
ranjandr last decade
Dr Maheeru,
Kindly refer my earlier feed back of 2 July.
Today , cough is increased but no mucous is coming out . Heavy sound is noticed at the throat during coughing. No fever . No pain in throat. Apetite is badly reduced . The child does not like to eat anything . There are tiny red erruption on the tongue .
AS per your earlier suggestion Cal Carb 30 and 200 are procurred.
Kindly suggest further course of action
 
ranjandr last decade
Hi Ranjan

Can you describe about these tiny red eruptions on tongue? Has tongue become sensitive; has it become painful?

Please give the child Kali mur tissue salt 6x thrice daily for some days.

yes there's a need to repeat calc. carb but before that we need to see the system settle from the acute episode.
