The ABC Homeopathy Forum

4&1/2 year old having sleep apnea: Dr. Kadwa

1. Mental State of the patient: Cheerful, but little clingy to mom
2. Physical Ailments: fissure, probable yeast infection in addition to sleep apnea
3. The likely cause for above problems: when looked inside her mouth, tonsils are not big, but (possibly)adenoids are very large. Other problems are (probably)dehydration, skin being always on drier side, and us washing her bottom with soap after BM might have caused even drier skin. That might have also caused yeast to take hold.
4. The modalities like whether the patient feels well or worse in hot weather, cold weather etc., he is relieved by / worsenened by hot applications, cold applications etc. : Dislikes warm or hot, likes cool water for baths, cool fabric on her skin etc
Patient ID: 4and1/2
Sex:F Age:41/2

1. Describe your main suffering? Sleep apnea, dry skin, fissure

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body? catching colds, sore throats, pink-eye and sinus infections frequently

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings? Scared of dark, and insects (I might be the cause of fear of insects)

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?
Cries-like a drama queen, has to go to the bathroom, every time she has bm.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease? Her apnea has been very noticeable for past 4months, and I noticed after she had cold and sinus infection. But even before that for past year I had heard her snore loud. Her fissure started after the antibiotic that we used, same with yeast infection.

6. Which time of the day you are worst? Apnea is worst in deep sleep, when she sleeps on sides or on her back. Is much better when she sleeps on her tummy, because her face is squished to keep her mouth open.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?
Nothing helps her apnea may be sleeping without pillow helps her a little.

Fissures are painful when she misses even one time BM, she has to go at least 2-3 times a day to keep everything soft. I also give her omegas (fish oil, flax oil), yogurt, and keep the bottom very hydrated with virgin coconut oil.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?


9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
She likes cool weather, not a fan of hot weather. But her skin dryness improves in summer.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
Very meticulous, crafty, sweet when need be and can trick you in believing her stories, knows her ways around people, how to sweetly ask for something and get it. very advanced in studies and memory.
- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
no change.
- Do you like being consoled during your tough times? Of course-she is 4 years old, loves to be hugged and carried.
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc? She used to be more, but not anymore, has learned to focus, she used to ask everyone to be quiet, but then again she is the one screaming around the house loud and noisy-playing!

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc?
Upto 2and 1/2 years of age, used suck her thumb, would not give-up, but then as soon as she got a tummy bug and her tummy hurt, we told her because germs went in your tummy through your thumb, next day-no thumb sucking after that...
- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife? She used to be little fearful trusting us that we will not leave, but not anymore.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
none that we know of

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
Loves salty, also loves cakes and candy-does not get to have much though. Not a fan of milk. yogurt-some days-love-some days-don't want it, likes pasta, carrots, grapes, papaya, kiwi, beetroot, peas, pomegranate, banana etc. basically anything edible-not a fan of meat though, loves fish

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give her three doses of Lachesis 200 as follows and see how that affects in next 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

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.

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.

If this doesn't help give Lycopodium 200 in the same way.

Thank you. Will report back after 15days.

Dr. Kadwa,
After 3 doses of Lachesis (4days past the 3rd dose), there has been a little improvement is my child's sleeping. but she still has to lie on her stomach , which opens her mouth. When looked in her mouth, still see the two huge balls in her throat, no reduction in size.

Should I wait for complete 15days before giving her Lycopodium?

Thanks for all the help.

Please give her Belladonna 30 twice a day for 7 days and report back.
kadwa 8 years ago
Ok, will do and will reply back.

Dr. Kadwa,
Wanted to ask you if the large tonsils are inherited and not because of any infection (seems like what my daughter has), would they be able to be reduced to a manageable size using homeopathy? It does not seem like she has any infection at this time. Neither are they red or yellow (indicating any infection). They are just big in size. When she was little, she had all of the lymph nodes big too, behind her neck in the shoulder area. Now they all are undetectable, except this immune helper. Just wondering.
commit833 8 years ago
Still, you can give her Belladonna as advised.

Mr. Kadwa,
The snoring and apnea has reduced significantly. The tonsils are still big, not swollen or red or infected. She is sleeping sounder, but on her belly though with her mouth open. Let me know what can be done next.
commit833 8 years ago
Please don't give any remedy for the time being. If she gets a relapse in her symptoms you may repeat Lach and Bell as you administered earlier.

Dr. Kadwa,
Just wanted to report, no apnea so far, yet still sleeps with her mouth open, which makes her mouth very dry in the morning and smelly. I am glad that she is at least sleeping a full nights sleep, and we avoided the surgery. I cannot thank you enough for that. Her fissure is still giving her problem, which does not bleed but she cries every time that she goes. Her bowel movement is thin at the beginning, which makes me wonder if their is any swelling in the passage and if you would have time to help us with that.

Another note, wanted to ask if you would be able to help me with my second child with a problem, which existed I guess since birth. Her shoulder blade has a ligament attachment to her spine, which I was told by the doctor that all babies have from birth and slowly loose that, but hers did not go away. She is 5 and 1/2. If it something you can help me with, I will fill-up another form and post it on the forum.
Thanks a lot for your help.
