For Toddlers to Teens
Children and young people in the toddlers to teens age range can respond incredibly well to homeopathy and bio-resonance. They generally have a strong, vital, natural healing capacity.
My work aims to support this natural healing mechanism and remind the body how to heal itself.
Chris Hytch and I ran Superkids* Homeopathic clinic for a few years. We intended to focus on ages from birth to 16. We quickly found that once parents discovered that homeopathy could help their children they quickly asked for appointments for themselves, other family members and guidance for their pets too!
The main reasons young people come to see me these days are
- Anger/mood swings
- Autistic spectrum challenges (see below)
- Digestive upsets
- Emotional struggles – adjusting to parents splitting up, pressures of school etc.
- Immune system problems – always getting coughs/colds
- Puberty related challenges – period problems etc.
- Sleep difficulties
- Skin problems
Perhaps the parents and young person are unhappy with the mainstream medical options for their health. This might be long term use of steroids, anti-depressants or other medications and there are things that can be done to trigger the body to re-balance and perhaps reduce the need for these things. Increasingly also parents have made a choice to steer clear of medications if at all possible so give holistic therapies a try first (if it is not a medical crisis, of course).
Some parents choose to take their children for routine homeopathic consultations several times a year, for example as the seasons change.
Many of my young clients are on the autistic spectrum and I am happy to work with them and their parents to see what can be achieved by triggering their own natural healing mechanisms.
Over the past few decades a prominent Dutch homeopath, Tinus Smits did some groundbreaking work with children and young people with autism, and other complex conditions. This has been extended out all over the world now. I am a certified Advanced CEASE practitioner and routinely apply these techniques in my practice. See the CEASE Therapy page for more information
ADHD – Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders
ADHD is now so commonly diagnosed that it affects at least one child in almost every class.
There are a range of symptoms that children / young people diagnosed as suffering from ADHD can experience. These include;
- being ‘dreamy’ and ‘spaced out.’
- concentration difficulties
- craving stimulation / something new
- learning difficulties
- poor self esteem
- reckless / fearless
The common response from conventional medicine is to use Ritalin or a similar drug to calm such children down.
Undoubtedly such treatment can seem to work but for many parents the side effects are too great and they are not willing to use such strong medication for their children.
In the US the Food and drug Administration has issued a warning that long term use of ADHD drugs may cause cardiovascular disease.
Homeopathy has been used for many years as a way of supporting children with ADHD/ADD in the USA where treatment with Ritalin originated in the 1960s.
The excellent book – ‘Ritalin Free Kids’ written by two American homeopaths, Judyth Reichenburg-Ullman and Robert Ullman details the treatment of many hundreds of children using homeopathy.

*Superkids Homeopathy was formed by Carol Fieldhouse (Prev. Bowler) and Chris Hytch in 2010. Chris now lives and practices in Cornwall so it is now incorporated into Carol’s practice in Warwickshire
Superkids Homeopathy* clients say
“I cannot thank Chris and Carol enough for what they have done for my two boys who were covered in eczema, not sleeping for the itching and scratching keeping them awake but after a few weeks they are different boys.
I was very sceptical but having tried everything I did not know what to do it was ruling our lives but now things are so much better thank you Chris and Carol”
“I was astonished how quickly my daughter responded to the homeopathy treatment. She was smothered in very sore eczema, and within a month of taking the treatment, the eczema had calmed right down to hardly anything.”
