Enlarged Adenoids


My 5.5 years old son has enlarged adenoids. In winter or dry season he feels slight difficulty in listening and we have to speak everything loudly. Moreover when he has this problem he also speaks loudly unintentionally. In other seasons he is fine.
In addition to this he almost always feels constipation. We give him warm milk + honey and sometimes Ispaghol husk but even then his bowel habit does not become normal.
I would be really thankful if you can suggest some good homeopathic remedy for him.

Thirst: He drinks more water than other children do.
zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
I believe your remedy is Calcarea Carbonica 200c.

Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.

One dose is one pill. Dissolve the pill under the tongue.

First dose: At night before sleeping.

Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose.

Report back with changes observed.


If you have liquid remedy and not pills, then put one drop of the remedy in half glass of water, stir and take one tea spoon from it. That’s one dose. Use the same mixture for subsequent doses, if required. Don’t refrigerate the mixture. Put it anywhere covered, away from direct sunlight.

Thanks for suggesting a remedy.

I will buy that and give as suggested to my son and report back.
zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago

I gave two doses of Calcarea Carbonica 200c 12 hrs apart. After two days we saw improvement in constipation. Hearing also improved a little bit. But now it has again become the same as before the remedy.

Can you please suggest something now?

zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
Please repeat the dose, just one dose.
fitness 8 years ago

After repeating the dose, the things are better now. We feel improvement in both the issues. Thanks a lot for your help.
What's your advice for the future in case this happens again or anything else you would like to say?


zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
Please keep repeating the dose (just one dose) every 15 days till full cure is obtained.

You can keep me posted about the progress so that I can advise if something else is required.
fitness 8 years ago
Ok, I will. Thanks
zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
You are welcome.

My child again had the same issue after 3-4 days of the last doze so I repeated the remedy again and he is fine. You suggested to give it every 15 days but I had to do it as the problem occurred again. I am sorry for giving it without your instruction.

Do you suggest a more frequent doze as per the given situation?

zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
You did right.

Sometimes the effect of dose can be nullified due to any number of reasons.

If the improvement stalls for more than 2 days, repeat the dose.

You can ask me in case of confusion.

My son has got Constipation again but hearing is good. Can you please advise?

zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
Is he eating well and drinking enough water.

What does he eat on an average day.
fitness 8 years ago
He is drinking good amount of water but is not eating good these days. In general his diet is lesser than that of children of his age but for last week the diet has been very low. He skipped the meal for some times during the week.
Even before that he used to take 2-3 glasses of milk. He never does breakfast, only takes a glass of milk. Takes one bread/roti or some rice in lunch and dinner.
zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
The cause of constipation is evident, he doesn't eat well.

Does he eat yogurt, if so, give him 1/2 cup plain yogurt daily, preferably home made. This will resolve the constipation within 1-2 days and improve his hunger dramatically.
fitness 8 years ago

Wouldn't yogurt create cold in this season? He is already having little cold and cough these days.
zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
If you give me info in bits & pieces I will not be able to precribe successfully.

Yes, if he is having some cold & cough then don't give him yogurt, rather give him orange or fresh orange juice. This will help with the cough/cold & appetite too.
fitness 8 years ago

One Orange a day has solved constipation issue.
However the hearing issue remains fine only for 4 days when we give him a dose. From 5th day his hearing becomes weak.

Can you please suggest?
zulqarnainhabib 8 years ago
Please give a feedback on all symptoms.

Hi fitness

This remedy worked always for my child.

Calcaria carb 200 always work for him in almost all his problem. I am grateful to you for suggesting such a great remedy.

He often has pain mainly in foot. Calc Carb works for the pain too and the pain is gone in a few hours. But thsese days he gets it back in about 3-4 days.

My question is should I continue this remedy for long period and how often can I repeat it? He is almost 10 years old now.
zulqarnainhabib 4 years ago
I think fitness isn't available.

I would be thankful if someone else could help me.
