Question about the treatment of food allergies using Homeopathy.

Can someone explain to me how a Classical Homeopath would treat food allergies that exhibit themselves with eczema, sleeplessness, digestive problems and/or hives.

Would it be the treatment of the exhibiting symptoms?

If yes, then would one assume that food allergies could be cured, if the symptoms were cured?

I'm new to Homeopathy and am just trying to understand.

My older kids had food allergies as infants/toddlers.

My youngest child had eczema that I believe resulted from food allergies.

I'm wondering, I guess, as we continue to introduce food to her (she's only 17 months), if we see problems (hives, eczema, digestive problems) with highly allergenic foods such as wheat or soy or dairy, if we'd then treat the symptoms and could expect to clear up those allergies and have her eat those foods.

I'm sorry if this is confusing, I'm trying to gain insight.

Thanks for any feedback.

Incidentally, my daughter's eczema is almost non-existant, after being under the care of John Stanton for many months.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I suggest, dilute your allergic foods to homeopathy grade and take a dose as medicine.

This is what I do to treat allergies on my patients and so far no case failed.

Well, I imagine that might help if we could determine what was bothering her. But, we were never able to figure it out definitively with the baby.

Dear Josie.

The clssical approach would be to just take, and treat the case as any other (unless of course you are talking about true anaphylaxis), and by doing so the so called 'food allergies' dissapear naturally, there is usually no need to pay them any special attention. I have noticed this 'dissapearance' many times.

If however you ARE talking about anaphylaxis, then the approach would be much along the lines as recommend by Kuldeep above, perhaps with the addition of some Histamine in potency. This should not though, be carried out at home, only under the supervision of a competent practitioner.

I hope this helps.

It does help, Jacob. Thank you.

No, fortunately my kids have never experienced anaphylactic shock.

The baby got eczema and had some bowel issues.

The oldest and middle girls got hives and eczema.

They were all poor sleepers, too.

Thanks for the input, it was as I thought. :)

Hey again Josie, and you're welcome. Remember also, 'food allergy' (non-anaphylactic) is a non-homoeopathic diagnosis, and a classical Homoeopath would diagnose the above conditions as having a completely different cause, probably Psora, but obviously a full case would have to be taken to verify this.

Best of luck.

Interesting information. We visited the only reputable Classical Homeopath in town (about a year ago, give or take) and she didn't give me any sort of diagnosis, but neither did I ask.

She did say that if, after a year, my daughter was still having problems with eczema that she had 'another' remedy in mind.

We never went back and I got more help (and better care) from John Stanton than all of the alternative health care providers I tried in my town (we tried that Homeopath, a Naturopath who we still see and really like, a JMT practitioner, two EFT practitioners and an acupuncturist). To be fair, though, I think everything I did helped a little, but the Homeopathy helped the most (though it was slow-going).

Anyway, off to research 'Psora.'

Where do you practice, Jacob?

Hello again Josie, and I hope you found it helpful :)

Bit concerned about your Homoeopath stating that you would have to wait a whole year(!!) to see if there was any benefit from her care, as most cases of eczema (and indeed accompanying 'food allergy' can be cleared within a matter of weeks! under proper care, something I have seen many times in my own practice.

You might also want to research Tuberculosis, as eczema can also be found under this miasm, when it alternates with lung troubles.

...and, I practice in London.

Best wishes.

Yes, I was concerned, too. That's why I never took my daughter back.

London. Well, we won't be visiting you. One could hope, right? Nonetheless, I appreciate your contributions here.

Thanks again.

Heh, I thought it might be a little too far away for you, but I do run an online 'clinic' too, which you are more than welcome to sign up for. Just follow the links in my profile.

...and you're very welcome ;)
