The ABC Homeopathy Forum

overweight 12 year old

My daughter has been overweight since the age of 8.Before that time she was completely normal if not underweight around the age of 6.She was diagnosed with asthma at the age of 5, mild case, no inhaler needed.After one episode of serious coughing I gave her corticosteroids prescribed by my aunt from our native country (we live in the USA for 8 years now).I gave her only 5 doses, 1 tablet a day for 5 days and it seemed to helped with the cough.Around that age she used to have very bad breath, usually in the morning,very strong odor, something I never experienced before.
After a while, my daughter started gaining weight especially around her stomach area and upper body. She has normal arms and legs.She is moderately active and does not eat junk food. Although , I have to admit, she doesn't eat much vegetables ether.As she was growing her shape was not changing.Her protruding belly was always there. Also fat deposits around her neck and upper back.She is fair skinned, fair haired healthy 12 year old (we did all blood tests for hormones, sugar, cholesterol-everything was normal). She is not constipated, has regular bowel movements and except for she is 5 feet tall and 100+ pounds heavy, she is a healthy girl.
She also tends to be angry and worry all the time.
She is a straight A+ student, very bright and dedicated, likes to be the best and likes perfection. She has very smart sense of humor. Very artistic but her strive for perfection kinda neutralize her capability to express herself. Doesn't know how to relax and let go.Opposite of care-free.She is also never cold and very often sweats during sleeping, mostly her forehead and around her neck.
Doesn't have body odors.
No period yet.I read about Nat phos 6x, so I was wondering if that would be a good solution for her.
If anyone have any thoughts about my daughters case, I would like to read.I've been using homeopathy for 13 years now and am convinced in its benefits.My homeopathic doctor doesn't seem to know how to help.
Thanks in advanced!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You can give her case here if you like.

How long after the corticosteroids did your daughter start gaining weight?

It is a know side effect of the medication to change the hormonal balance and create weight gain (amongst other problems).

It is also possible that suppressing the cough with the drugs has created a more serious long term problem for her (as our philosophy teaches us happens).

So the possible avenues you could take are:

1. to have someone take a full constiutional case (I am happy to do this understanding the limitations of a forum like this).

2. Use an isopathic approach and have her take cortisone as a homoeopathic medicine (to remove the imprint of the drug).

If you want to give her case I will post my intake form.

Thank you for your fast reply.
I would say couple of months after taking just 5 tablets she started gaining weight.What I figured out it must be that little dis-balance caused complete mess-up.I didn't mention that she doesn't like going to sleep and always tries to fight it.
Last year I took her to a chiropractics doctor that does Nutritional Testing and kinesiology. He determined that she has thyroid problem and that her body is allergic to white rise.He gave her some bovine thyroid hormone that she was taking for a month after her thyroid activity was 50% better but no change in her appearance or weight.
Yes, I would like you to take her case, let me know what I should do regarding that matter and how much do you charge?
Please post your intake.

Best Regards,

We don't charge for our advice here. It is merely a matter of taking the time to answer questions.


It is important to describe all her problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information. Note that some complaints may not lend themselves easily to answer each of these questions.

1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in her life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF her HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE. You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide.

As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in her life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on her mentally, emotionally or physically.

Discuss the way that she manages or deals with her problems, or any problems that occur in her life.

Discuss any patterns you have noticed in her behavior especially concerning her disease.

Discuss any part of her life where she seems stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of her disease, or as the disease evolved.

Describe her childhood and the kind of environment she grew up in, with reference to her relationships with her family, her school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.

If her earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that she craves (not just like) or hates
2. The specific drinks that she craves or hates
3. What her sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects her
5. What kinds of things in the environment she is particularly sensitive to
6. What is her general level of energy is like

9. Also give these details

a) Body type and build
b) Skin colour and texture
c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on
d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine
e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat

10. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs.

Dr. David, here are some of the answers, but I am not sure I covered everything.
1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in her life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

The problem started when she was around 7 years old.Nothing in particular important was happening in her life at that time.Couple of months before I noticed weight gain, I gave her corticosteroids,only 5 doses,1 tablet per day for 5 days.Also, my mom was staying with us for 6 months, and than she left back to Europe, where she lives.

My daughter was born during bombing. She was first child for both me and my husband. She was very much wanted and waited for. The experience of bombing was horrific and I can only guess how much it affected her through me.It didn't last very long and our lives weren't directly in danger but the feeling I can not even describe.My husband and I very much love each other and our family was always stable and compact. When our daughter was 15 months old we decided to come to USA.My husband came first to setle and we were supposed to follow 6 months apart.Anyways,our paperwork got lost in the system and it took actually almost 2 years before we were together again.My daughter and I were staying with my parents, I all that time I thought was hard for my daughter because the 3 of us were always together and my daughter was very close to her dad.On the other hand, my parents are lovely people and she had nothing but love and care in her life.When I think about anything traumatic in her life, that would be the only thing, separation from her dad, but she was so little that I am not sure if that can count as trauma.She just turned 3 when we joined again and we never separated again.
our other daughter was born when the first one was 5 years old.They love each other.At that time her weight was normal and she was healthy and happy child, aside from her asthma.Since she was born, she had periodic cough attacks, after she would usually throw up.
there was absolutely no pattern to it, I just couldn't know why or when.Later, I noticed that every time she would catch a virus or a cold, it would trigger her cough attacks.The worst time was during her kindergarten year, first time in school ( I was always at home taking care of her), when she had those attacks so often that she missed 31 days of school in total.The worst cough was usually around 4 in the morning and would last for 1 or two after what she would trow up and finally fall asleep again.She would be very exhausted and I would keep her at home that day.
At school she was always very successful, never a single problem, friendly, obedient, good child and student. We always had her friends over after school or sleepovers.
In second grade is when I noticed weight gain around her stomach.I was comparing her to other overweight kids, but her body looked different.She started gaining that protruding tummy and fat deposits on her upper front and back.Everything else was normal size.I always felt it might be thyroid gland, but every time tests were normal.
All doctors claimed that it is just matter of eating properly and exercising, but we never changed her diet or level of activity to begin with that would lead to sudden weight gain.It just crossed( so she was 7), she got some vaginal discharge,like candida discharge, that doctors also said was normal. It lasted for maybe 6 months and after that was gone for good.

She deals with her problems fairly good, but tends to keep emotions inside. Likes to blame others for stuff, not very willing to accept responsibility.
As far as her self esteem counts she is very proud of herself and doesn't seems to care about her weight.She is a very, very pretty girl.
recently she would get mad when she couldn't buy some clothing because of her body shape. But, she is getting that age when body becomes more important and everybody pays more attention to it.
One thing she can not change and she is stuck with is she doesn't like sharing.She likes her stuff to be just hers and it is so frustrating sometimes having two children.
Selfish, loud, craves attention, likes to be the best in school,can't make decision easy, always in doubt if she picked the right one, never satisfied, grumpy, doesn't like to be touched a lot,things have to be perfect.

1. She mostly craves bread.
2. She doesn't crave / or hate any specific drink.
3. Doesn't like going to sleep.Ever. It is a constant struggle.She likes sleeping in.
4. Weather doesn't seems to bother her or temperature change.Good under hot and cold.She is hardly ever cold, I can almost say never.
5. She is sensitive and very aware of her stuff. Material stuff. I am teaching her that we are not our stuff and that all of that is not important and recently I noticed slight change regarding that matter. she seems to be less attached to certain things.
6. her general energy level is always pretty high.Not hyper but she is very energetic.
also lazy, but that is mostly my fault.

a) Body type is baby like.
b) Skin is light, but tans well, pink and smooth.Light hair and eyes.Face is red after physical activity.
c tends to perspire under hair, forehead and around her neck.
d) No body odors, I don't know colour of stool but doesn't have foul smell,often flatulent, urine normal.

10. No reaction to meds or vaccinations.Past 4 years she is taking Reishi mushrooms for her asthma and they work wonders.That is the only thing that actually work for her and we tried couple of different homeopathy doctors.Nothing helped until I found out about Reishi.She never take any other meds, except for motrin for headache from time to time.

I hope that will tell you what you needed to know and thank you in advance!

My Best Regards,

I will look over this information.

Could you do me a favour though, please describe the feeling of being in that bombing. Try to describe it as exactly as you can.

Our understanding in homoeopathy is that such events do affect the baby, and can transmit what we call a 'root' of a disease to them. This root grows into a full-blown disease later on.

Dr. David
The bombing started 7 days before my daughter was born.I was already enough scared to go through all 'giving birth' thing, because all my life I was hyper sensitive and pain non tolerant. When bombing started I couldn't believe at the beginning and later I was very scared and unsure about the future. My husband is a very brave man and his strength helped a great deal.We lived in a capital city and that bombing didn't have civilian locations as targets, but the sound of sirens and the planes flying over and also sound of missiles flying through the air would just send chill down my spine.My daughter was born in the hospital between two sirens, but I actually felt very safe in the hospital, now when I think about it.The bombing lasted for two months.It's hard to explain the feeling, but the life was pretty much normal during the day, but the night was terrifying.I didn't think this analytical about it in a long time, but now when I look back, I was most of the time in my own mind bubble, that has always been my getaway during difficult times.My daughter was very demanding baby since day one and I couldn't leave her alone for a minute of the day. She always wanted attention, I would feed her whole day long and she was constantly crying for 4 long months.After we decided to introduce formula as a daily supplement, she was finally at ease.The doctors were constantly telling me to be persistent and that I have enough milk for her, but it seemed that I actually didn't.
It is very hard for me to describe and to remember those feelings during the bombing, but the main one would be fear and anger and frustration when the electricity and/or water were cut off for couple of days.I wasn't scared that we were going to be killed, but the whole abnormal situation was very unpleasant.It is funny how looking back I just realized how it wasn't that scary and how my family, friends and I are actually blessed we didn't lose anybody. I am not the best example or witness of the whole thing, it seems like someone else's life now.
I don't know if that's even what you asked me to write about.
Best Regards,

This is always difficult using second-hand information. With children this age in my own clinic, I will speak to them directly, and the information they give me can be the opposite of what the parents give me. So this makes case-taking in this manner somewhat risky. I may end up hearing your remedy rather than hers.

Would she be willing to answer some questions if you put them to her?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Dr. David,
I asked her and she doesn't want to answer any questions, she wants me to leave her alone, she said.If you want, you could post the questions and than I will ask her and write down the answers. That would be the only way for now. I appreciate your time and effort.
It does make more sense to speak with children directly rather than with parents,so I will understand if you can not give me the solution for her.
miryana last decade
Yes that makes it very hard. Any prescription carries with it a higher risk of being incorrect this way.

Ask her about the following things, and write down exactly what she says, even if she changes her mind about the answers part way through.

What is she most afraid of?

What is the worst thing that ever happened to her?

what does she hate most in the world?

What does she love most in the world?

What is the most horrible thing she can think of?
