Infant with reflux

I'm at a loss because I am looking for a naturl cure for my little one. She is 7 weeks old and was diagnosed with acid reflux. They put her on Zantac. It seemed to help but has also started constipation which doesn't help the already upset stomach. She is ebf and I've eliminated dairy. I read about natrum and nux but would like a little additional information before I give this to my lo. I am giving probiotics now and have heard giving papaya enzyme helps? Any advice is appreciated.

Not sure if you know much about natrum phos 6x or nux vomica by hylands? I don't know correct dosage for her so I haven't bought or given. Do you think this will work?

Hi cduff.

Please answer the questions from Fitness.

Homeopathy is given based on matching the remedy with the
symptoms, physical and mental, emotional, better and worse.

It is not the remedy doing the work-the remedy is a catalyst.
There is a " law" in healing, like cures like. When the prescriber
finds the right match of remedy, the body will react by raising
the life force to do the healing, bc the body will recognize the
remedy is "like" the state of the person and will not allow
2 things to be there at the same time.

Hylands is a well known maker of remedies- that is not a problem.
If you answer the questions, then Fitness can find the correct
remedy that matches the answers. There are over 5000 remedies,
any one of them could work , if they were the right match.

Is she still on Zantac
fitness 8 years ago
No I took her off because she is constipated and it didn't seem like it was working anymore.
Cduff 8 years ago
When did you stop Zantac
fitness 8 years ago
Two days ago she only had one dose of 0.9 ml and she was directed to take 2 doses a day.
Cduff 8 years ago
Your remedy is: Calcarea Phosphorica 30c

Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 2 days with changes observed.

One dose is made by dissolving one pill of the remedy (or one drop, if you have liquid remedy) in half a glass of cooled, boiled water. Stir it and take one tea spoon from it.

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.

If there is 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.

Sometimes the symptoms for which treatment is being done can worsen after taking the homeopathic remedy. This is homeopathic aggravation and a good sign. It usually dies down within 24-48 hrs. During this time you can use any non-medicinal means to keep yourself comfortable. If the aggravation seems excessive, you can use any & all means necessary (including taking allopathic medicines) to keep yourself comfortable. Keep your homeopath fully updated if this happens.

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.

If your child is breastfed then what you eat will have a huge effect on your baby’s health. If you eat foods which cause gas (e.g. cabbage, beans, cauliflower etc) then your baby will have gas too. Cut back on the foods which cause gas in you or your husband (because your baby may have acquired the genetic tendency of your husband to have gas & bloatedness). Eating a few fennel seeds will address infrequent gas & bloatedness, eating it in excess will cause constipation.

Homeopathy works on “individualization” i.e. the remedy for GERD which will work on one child may not work on another. There are several remedies for GERD. Nat-Phos is promoted by a particular person as THE remedy for curing GERD by selectively quoting parents benefiting from his Nat-Phos protocol. This is not only incorrect but totally against the principles of “individualization” in homeopathy. Desperate parents would do anything to get the cure but blindly going for Nat-Phos is not the route as many have found the hard way. It’s a case of common sense & statistics. If you give Nat-Phos to 100 kids for GERD, some are bound to improve, it doesn’t mean that it’s THE remedy for GERD. Be sensible and consult a classical homeopath who gives only one single remedy at a time, waits for the remedy to work and discloses the name of the remedy.

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.

Unfortunately, antacids and other allopathic medicines mess up true symptoms which are essential for finding the right homeopathic remedy and curing the case. The allopathic medicines are suppressive in nature and the longer they are used, the more difficult cure becomes. Allopathic medicines should be the last resort when all else fails.

I give her probiotics. Do I stop this as well???
Cduff 8 years ago
Just make sure you don't make two changes at the same time e.g. if probiotics have been started a week ago then its fine, if just 2 days ago, then stop them before starting on homeopathy.
fitness 8 years ago
I have to wait for product to ship and then I will give update.
Just a few questions.
Will this help her constipation ? Will this improve her ability to sleep?
Thank you.
Cduff 8 years ago
Should work for everything.
