5 1/2 Month Old with Reflux and "asthma"Hello,
My son was born on March 12, 2011 and is a happy spitter. By that I mean he throws up a lot, but it does not bother him. He is happy, gaining weight well (born at 9lbs 9oz and at 5 1/2 months is 21 lbs). He eats well and sleeps well. He is only breastfed.
At about 2 months old he got a chest cold. This required 2 weeks of nebulizer treatments. Medications Xopenx and pulmicort (we are in the US). Following that he got another chest cold and ear infection. Another round of nebulizer and antibiotics.
His cough cleared but still sounded weezy. Therefore, the weezy chest and frequent spitting up lead my pedi to diagnose him with reflux and perscribe zantac and daily nebulizer treatments. After one month and the weezing did not improve he was switched to prevacid and a referal to pedi pulmonologist who took him off the nebulizer, but put him on advair twice a day.
I do notice that they days he spits up more he is weezy. Otherwise he is a very happy, very healthy baby.
I'd like to get him off the prevacid and advair if at all possible. Our pedi and pulmonologist have all said we wont know if it's real asthma until the reflux clears and who knows when that will be. I dont like the idea of him being on these meds if there is something natural that could help him. I've been reading briefly on Nat Phos 6x. My husband also suffers from acid reflux, high blood sugar, pressure and triglycerides so this could be a help to him too? BUT, my first priority is my son and his reflux.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

I am horrified that your pediatrician(s) have prescribed the whole gamut of drugs prescribed for adults including PPI drugs --- Prevacid and Zantac for your baby's GERD and prescribed Advair and Xopenx and Pulmicort plus Nebulizers with steroids for his Asthma. It is likely that he could not have survived for long on this dangerous regimen and you must consider your baby as being very fortunate that you posted his critical condition on the ABC at this juncture in his life.
It is very likely that your son's Asthmatic problems stem from his GERD and I shall be interested to see how he responds in a few weeks after you start on my therapy aka 'Joepathy'.
I would like to start him off on 1 tablet Nat Phos 6x after every feed and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily for his GERD.
The remedy for his Asthma is Nat Sulph 6c and Ars Alb 30c both remedies to be taken in the Wet dose once daily.
It is very likely that his Asthma will cease when his GERD is cured.
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.
Leave about half hour between remedies but give him the Nat Phos 6x dissolved in a teaspoonful of milk or water immediately after a feed.
It is understood that you will stop using all the drugs prescribed for your baby and only use them on a SOS basis if essential.
Please report his progress on a daily basis. You will appreciate that this is essential as you live in the US and I in Sri Lanka. This is the type of case that is usually treated directly during a consultation but both you and I can see the result of how your doctors have treated your baby's case in the only manner that they have been taught to do with the most powerful drugs which are know to affect even adults. You have only to Google 'Danger of using PPI drugs' to verify my statement.
If you have any urgent need to call me for help please contact me by email and you will find the address by clicking on my name when you will see my profile. If you have Skype on your computer we can then talk or you may contact me by phone.

Please request your husband to visit the link below for information on my therapy for GERD for adults. If he wishes me to treat him too, I shall do so later including his Diabetes and Hypertension with Cholesterol and Triglycerides.
