Once a premature baby gets out of the hospital, their problems are often not over. There are a wide range of problems that can develop including feeding problems, respiratory problems , delayed development and many more.
Whether we are talking about a newborn, just out of the neonatal unit, or a much older child who still shows some problems, we can often help with homeopathy.
Here are a couple of cases to give you an idea how this works.
Joshua was born 10 weeks premature. He was in the hospital for 3 months with some breathing problems. Then he seemed okay, though still very small and behind in development. Now he is 1 and suffering from large kidney stones, The stones were just removed. He has had
a number of urinary tract infections with fevers and vomiting , which continue now.
His personality is open, easy going, happy. He has a low appetite and very little thirst.
Based upon these and other symptoms we gave him a dose of Pulsatilla (note that this was the right remedy for him but the possibility of it being the right remedy for another premature child is very low).
By one month his mother reported that he blossomed after the remedy. He stopped being sick. He started trying to walk. He stopped being so easy going and started showing his own personality. He communicated his needs more.
By 2 months he was walking and the doctor said he caught up on all the developmental milestones and was no longer considered a high risk child. No problems remained.
Here is another example:
Megan was 5 but had major speech delays. She was born 5 weeks premature. Her speech was now on the level of a 3 year old. She didn’t understand a lot that was said to her and had trouble communicating. She was not toilet trained.
She was a sweet loving child but sometimes had severe temper tantrums, She had many fears.
Her teeth wore out rapidly and she drooled considerably, especially during sleep.
Based upon these and other symptoms we gave her a dose of Mercurius iodatus ruber (note that this was the right remedy for her but the possibility of it being the right remedy for another premature child is very low).
By one month she started potty training. She became more mellow and no longer had so many fits. Her speech level jumped up a very big step.
Over the next years her learning abilities and level went a long way toward normality. Her teeth stopped being a problem. Her drooling stopped. She stopped having many temper tantrums and was happier.
In this example you see the difference between homeopathy and other approaches for treatment of premature babies. After the right remedy we expect to see everything getting better in the person’s life.
