5-yr-old with GERDIm looking for help with my 5-yr-old daughter with acid reflux (undiagnosed). For years now, she has complained of a 'pain in her heart'. She always burps a lot and frequently has a sore throat and 'sicky burps'. She likes to express her opinion and is a third and youngest child. She mostly eats small meals and needs encouragement to eat. 1 month ago she got a tummy bug (i think!) and was sick several times over a week. She carries a bag around since then incase she vomits and feels the need to in the form of acute sudden tummy pain (she points to her stomach) often. She feels better after vomiting. She has just started school and is very worried about her 'cross teacher'. Recently she has had outbursts outside school saying she is going to be sick and she can't go today. She was sick frequently over the school holidays and did not want to go anywhere. she can't be bothered to do much. its all too tiring for her. She loves to eat fruit and veg but does not really like rich foods. She is loosing weight and is slender. she is irritable and everything annoys her at the moment. She now cries a lot and says she can't stop. She loves to please and hates disapproval. Oh my husbands family have strong history of ulcer/GERD. Sorry long post. I'd hate to put her through scope and proton pump inhibitors. any ideas?. Seen Nat Phos 6x suggestions...but cant find dosage for age 5. Thanks so much for reading

One dose of Sepia 200
One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.
day 2 to day 15
2 pellets of Natrum Phos 6x in the morning and evening.
Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thanks for reply. Ordered sepia and nat phos. Soonest I could get them was monday 14th. Avoided Apple cider vinegar as per sepia. She still feels sudden urge to be sick and has sore throat and 'sore heart'. I have agreed to return her to GP, but really want to give homeopathy a shot (I have had great results in the past!).
