Infant Reflux and Vomiting

My 7 month old son has been having severe reflux and vomiting since 6 weeks of age. he throws up in large quantity and has not been gaining wt. He is on antiacids- Prevacid, Mylanta but they are not helping with his vomiting or reflux. He has severe pain since long so he has developed food aversion and refuses food when awake. we are subjected to feed him only when he is deep sleep. I asked homopathic medications and have Natrumphos and aethusa. Are they the right medications? I have them in pellets and my son gags and throws up on them. So, if they are right can I crush the pellets and give it to him in water or mixed with food? when should the medication be taken? is there any other medication for his reflux/GERD and Vomiting?
will be grateful if somebody can help a distress mother. Thanks

I thought homopathic meds are safest for this age compared with allopathic. Plus on this forum there are lots of mothers who child is younger than mine(7 mo) and using homopathis

Pl give your child
1. Calc Carb-30 4 pills 3 times a day
you can crush and give it or disolve in 1 teaspoonwater and give it or purchase liquid medicine and give 2 drops in 1 teaspoonful water for 3 times a day
2. Natrum phos-6x 2 pallets 3 times a day
Keep 30-40 minutes gap between above 1 and 2
Pl give feedback after 15 days.

Dr. RP Tamahankar,

Don't u think that Calc carb 30c is a medicine which reduces weight and hunger and it is a much high powerful remedy for the child. Though the main problem of prescribing this patient is the guardian did not described the form of the child's vomit and stooping.The temperature and of the body and sweating after or before vomit and the smell of the child's vomit like or sweat like. So how can u suggest a very powerful medicine of opposite at mostly inappropriate medicine for that child. So I m founding here risky too much it is. There are so many other medicines for childs like Camomilla, Ipeacac, China etc also can remove the problem without help of any biochemic remedy. I also give prescriptions on short description many times but only do that when I found valuable things in that shortened description, But the description have nothing except the acid reflux and vomit symptom which is the most common symptoms of the vomiting tendency of any age people.

sorry for the delay in response... being a mother of a little refluxer is tough!
My son's vomits mostly after 2-3 hrs after meals and it appears as if formula is not digested in that whole time ( we are using hydroxylated, hypoallergenic formula- considering milk allergy). At times he throws up immediately after food. he gags, coughs and throws up and smells acidic/pungent. his stools are well formed and greenish in color.
also he is not hungry most of times--- he refuses food even if he is not feed for 8-9 hrs!
I was recommended aethusa for vomiting by a friend, is that good?
cktelnet last decade

Please wait for Dr. Showrav to respond
with prescription and any more
specific questions he may have for
you about the baby bc he has had a lot
of these type cases.

Also when you get prescription it is
very important to report within the
time he tells you, so that he knows
what exactly medicine is doing or
not doing.
simone717 last decade
do not take homoeopathy
dr.alex last decade
dr. alex- no one is going to take
your advice unless you say why.

And also why are you on a homeopathy

Joe De Livera last decade

cktelnet last decade

Nat Phos 6x is his remedy and you can expect to see results within the hour after his feed. Give him half a tablet which you can dissolve in a teaspoonful of water after every feed and report his response in 24 hours. Reduce the dosage to even quarter tablet when you find that he is without any pain after the first few days.

Nat Phos 6x is perfectly safe to be used unlike the PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs prevacid that you have given him which is dangerous for a baby at that age.

Do not exceed 3 tablets Nat Phos for a day.

You are also advised to take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily as it will be carried to baby in your milk and the bonus is that you will lose weight by 1kg per WEEK.
Please note that this is for the MOTHER.

Also stop the Prevacid, Aethusa and mylanta.

Report progress in 24 hours after the first dose.

Dear Joe De Livera

I have natrum phos 30 pellets, will that work? if so, how many pellets should i be giving? can they be mixed with formula. I have stopped breast feeding my son.
cktelnet last decade
No you have to use NAT PHOS 6x.

like Joe said use half a tab in water
after baby eats. If you are using formula
you can just put the spoon of water
into babies mouth after he is done eating.

The potency is very important- you cannot change it- it will give bad

I cannot understand the reason why some mothers insist on using their own version of my Joepathy to treat their babies. There is ample evidence on this forum and on my own blog:
of many mothers whose babies I have treated with the same Nat Phos 6x and Arnica therapy responding in a manner that is very satisfying. The reports of the mothers whose babies had been prescribed various powerful PPI drugs were only making a bad situation infinitely worse for the baby patient, suddenly took a turn for the better almost overnight with the baby stopping the regurgitation of milk and gaining weight in a week.

This mother seems determined to use her own therapy and all I can do is to wait patiently on the sidelines and hope and pray that her baby does not suffer unnecessarily due to the mother refusing to use my Joepathy precisely as prescribed.
Joe De Livera last decade
to joe,

I dont understand why you have to be upset about a small question that I asked. All i wanted to know that if the medication I have is the right one -- i have not given or used it yet! We are not familiar with homoepathy( have just heard that it is safer bet) so we come here for advice which we expect to be treated more patiently than rudely. Based on your statement, I assume that there might be other mothers who might not have followed you in the past. But making statement just on your past experiences is totally incorrect.
I would appreciate if you help me to understand where to purshase this nat phos( is it similar to the natrium phosphoricum) available on this website and hyland is fine?
cktelnet last decade

are you in USA- the 6X is in health food
stores. Or buy the 6X on the abc
remedies store. Hyland is fine.
