Pollakiuria/Frequent Daytime Urination 5 yr old

My daughter is 5.5 yrs old and has had pollakiuria (frequent daytime urination) off and on (but mostly on) for almost 2 yrs now. It is definitely related to stress as it started the first time her father went out of town. He doesn't travel much but she had never been away from him at that point. She feels the need to go and only urinates a small amount. She can hold it and doesn't have accidents. She is not diabetic and does not have a UTI.
Home life is good, she is happy and playful, not prone to sickness.
What other info would you like? She is very receptive to homeopathics and I was hoping that I might find something to help her with this. The frequency can be an issue at school and she does worry about where the bathroom is when we go out.
Thanks!
Michelle

Your remedy is: Stramonium 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 7 days with changes observed.

TIME OF DOSE:
First dose: At night before sleeping.
Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose.
Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell you.

PILLS/PELLETS:
If your remedy is in the form of pills:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill in mouth.

LIQUID REMEDY:
If your remedy is in liquid form:
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.

PRECAUTIONS:
If there is significant worsening of symptoms (called homeopathic aggravation) after the first dose, then don’t take the second dose.
Don’t take any other homeopathic remedy during this treatment.
Give a break of at least 10 minutes before eating/drinking anything before or after taking the remedy.
During the treatment, don’t eat anything which you have never had all your life.

HOW TO GIVE FEEDBACK:
A good example of how to report your progress is by giving %age improvement for all your health problems e.g.
Headache: 30% better
Low energy level: 50% better
Anxiety: 40% better
Sadness: No change
Depression: Worse
And so on list all your complaints.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING:
If someone is giving several remedies, without waiting to see the effect of one remedy, then it is totally against the core principles of homeopathy. Such an approach is unlikely to give permanent cure, rather it may distort actual symptoms making subsequent cure even more difficult.

Interesting. I did a little research on Stramonium and it doesn't describe my daughter at all.

She does not have intense fear of the dark, it's very mild. She isn't violent and has never had tantrums.

I suppose I can try it and see what happens. It can't really harm her to give her the wrong remedy, right?
 
mom2ivy 7 years ago
I thought I'd go ahead and add a few more details about my daughter.
She is very healthy, not vaccinated. She does have asthma (rarely and usually cold weather induced or if she gets a cold). She is also allergic to peanuts. She used to be allergic to dairy, corn, walnuts and I was on a restricted diet while nursing as she would react to what I ate.
She is very active, extremely talkative and social. She makes friends easily. She loves performing, dancing and singing.
She is an only child.
She is competitive. Loves to read and can do quiet things as well as active things. She is very movement oriented.
She walked late (17 mths) but talked early and speaks very well.

The symptoms are of Stram & Phos, I feel its Stram. Rest is your choice.

Hi, I'm curious if the remedy worked. I know it's been two years but am very curious about your results. I hope your daughter is better! My child is having the same issue for a long time now. Acupuncture helped but it's back...and I'm exploring other options. Thanks in advance!
