Baby refluxMy baby is 19 week old and has been suffering from reflux since he was 1 month old. I add milk thickener so he doesn't vomit out the milk since last 3 months but he is very uncomfortable all throughout the day and night. keeps crying and screeming. Otherwise he used to be very happy for long periods. He does not have constipation. I read it on your forum about Nat phos 6x for the treatment of reflux. I am based in Netherlands and here they sell it as Natrum phosphoricum ';D6'. Is it the same as '6x'? Kindly let me know if I can get the medicine in Amsterdam and the right dosage for him. Thanks

I suggest to give her one dose of CHAMOMILLA 200c if you can manage to get it there.
There may be some Indian friends in your place who may be using Homeo medicines. They will give you one dose of about 5-6 pills.If they have with them.
Just put them on her tongue without you touching the pills & forget about for a week.

The Nat phos 6x that you read about on here is not being prescribed
according to homeopathic principles. Nat Phos is known to reduce
acidity. So this is a general protocol that is being used in an allopathic
fashion, take this for that. Reflux is a common condition that babies outgrow,
and Nat Phos helps some and does not help others.
When you use homeopathic principles you match the remedy to the
specific symptoms of what is going on. There are many remedies for specific
symptoms of reflux and that is why Dr. Saab is prescribing Chamomilla.
Remedies will often have an expiry date on them bc there are new laws
that companies have to now put expiry dates and at least one reason
the remedy is given for. Remedies if stored correctly can last for decades.

I would like to observe that Nat Phos 6x is a Biochemic Cell Salt and I have used and prescribed it for over 25 years and can recommend it as is seems to work in some wondrous manner to alleviate Gastric problems including Baby GERD and Reflux that seems to affect babies today.
Simone mentioned that Nat Phos is not a Homeopathic remedy
My NP therapy may not be Homeopathic but it invariably works in a manner that many hundreds of desperate mothers have discovered to be far more effective than the remedy prescribed after the usual hocus pocus associated with identifying the homeopathic remedy which invariably does not work.
I prefer to use my 'Joepathy' and am happy to know that Dr Banerji who owns and operates the Prasanta Banerji Homeopathic Foundation in Kolkata also uses the same 'This for That' therapy that I have used for many years and they treat over 1500 patients daily.
For the record I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD below:
I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.
Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.
You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable babys digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.
You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.
It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.
You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.
If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.
