My son had a terrible eye infection from birth, I used breast milk and weak dilution of baby shampoo (not at the same time) at the suggestion of the clinic, when that did not work the doctors prescribed different antibiotics for a year, nothing worked. The specialist eventually put him on the waiting list for an operation, but told me not to bother trying anymore antibiotics, as the only thing that would work would be to open the tear duct.
The day after seeing the specialist, I wet some cotton wool with warm water and swiped it over my organic coconut oil, just so I could clean the gunge from his eye. His eye did not tear or fill up with pus all day. I did the same in the evening, as there was a little pus at the corner. He woke up with clear eyes the next morning. The first time ever! I continued with the coconut oil for about a week just to make sure the infection was gone. Then phoned the specialist to have him struck from the waiting list.
Hi, I am considering giving homeophatic borax tablets to a child, 10 years old, for suspected fluoride poisining. I have got Borax 30D. Has anyone from the Earth Clinic have experience with homeophatic borax, particularly for children? I appreciate your response.
My 1 year old nephew is allergic to fish and wheat. He will also be tested more, but until then he also cannot have dairy. Any suggestions on what to feed him?
My son is 26months old and diagnozed with pre B ALL in Nov 2009. He is in remission and undergoing chemo, he will be going thru his final chemo cycle in a month and will be in maintenance for another year. I read with great interest on the usage of food grade h2o2 and its benefits. Is there anyone out there who has used this for children?
My grandson who is just only 3 years & 4 months of age, has been detected to have stones in the Gallbladder. Doctors advise to remove the Gallbladder. Could you suggest any alternatives to dissolve them?
I am new to this site, and maybe I'm just not familiar with how to use it yet, but I don't see a remedy for infant colds. I have a 9 month old that is getting her second cold. Being a brand new parent, I'm hesitant to give her anything. What do you suggest for her? Mostly just runny nose and caugh. Thank you!
I am looking for a place to read about what people have done for children (not infants) with GERD. And what foods should be avoided and what to eat. Thanking you in advance for any infomation you may send.
My son has had GERD since birth, along with it came asthma, seasonal allergies, indoor allergies and food allergies. Our son takes quercitin--natural bioflavonoid, it has been a God send! however, it never stopped his GERD.. He drinks 4 oz of water every day 3 times a day as well. He also takes prevacid adult dose of 15 mg and it is not right to do this to a child with an adult dosage.. Please respond

My 6 1/2 year old daughter has started getting headaches from the past 2 months. I took her to the GP who couldn't find the cause. She wears glasses and I have recently got it checkes and her power hasn't changed. I am not able to figure what could be the cause of it. I or my husband never got headaches when we were young (we don't get it even now). I only get headaches very rarely when I have skipped a meal or when I have been too much in the sun. I thought these could be the reasons for my daughter to get it too. But from the past 2 days, I have avoided that for her and she still got the headache. Sometimes shortly after she wakes up, she has a slight headache. When it is slight, she is able to do her normal routine, play with her friends, etc. The headache is not accompanied with any nausea, vomitting, etc. A couple times she has got fever after the headache, but it goes off with 1 or 2 doses of over the counter fever/pain medication.
She is a little bit heavier than she should be, so I have been taking her for running on a field. Sometimes I have noticed that as soon as I mention that we have to go to the field, she gets a headache. And I know she is not lying. Could it be tension headache? I have told her this week I will not take her for running, instead just short walks on the street around the house (which she loves as we get to talk about all she likes to talk). I am going to check out this week by not taking her for running and if it continues, take her to padetrician next week.
What else could be the cause of her headache? And what are possible remedies. I don't think she would drink ACV or Cayenne pepper.

My son has chronic hives. He will be 4 years old in a few months. He is taking zytrec and zantac. He has been seen by many doctors/specialist. All kinds of blood work/ scratch test have been performed. Everything has come back negative. Wondering if anyone can help with some ideas? Thank you.
Hi, sorry, I'm not sure where to put this request, so here I landed.
Anyway, we need a heading under CHILDREN like "Make your own baby food" - "Formula" or something like that.
My daughter has been giving formula to the baby, against my protest, you must understand. She's been using the brand "Good Start" which causes rashes all over the babies bodies of some babies (maybe a lot - who knows).
LIVINGSTRONG says it's because it contains unhydrolyzed proteins. Now the family wants to give him a hydrolyzed formula, yuk! They just want to jump from the frying pan into the fire, poor baby.
We need ideas from you good folks out there that have the real deal, that truly is good for the baby, like raw goats milk (organic non-GMO goats that is). Often times that can not be had.
So what's a poor soul to do? Help everybody! What's your super solutions?
Thanks a lot
My son has had an on and off toothache for a bit now, I have been waiting to try the eggshell calcium for him (prepared from chicken eggs consumed daily for two months and you will see tooth healing) but since he's 7 it's a little harder to get him to take it. Anyways, for his toothache, chamomilla has provided him instant relief, within a minute or two and he's back to bed. Other times belladonna and calcerea phosphorica has worked. Well, two days ago he had a toothache then woke up with a swollen cheek, it was so bad it looked like he had a giant gumball in there and the swelling was also making under his eye puffy. I got online immediately to look for a homeopathic remedy and try nux vomica and veretrum album but those didn't appear to be working after one day of use so I looked again and tried belladonna and mercurius vivus and after another day it was almost completely gone, the abscess started forming on his gum (so the infection has been localizing) now we are working to get rid of his abcsess with 4grams of vit c and regular doses of colloidal silver each day. I just wanted to share about how the homeopathic preparations work instantaneously and are even easy for babies too because they are little sweet pills that dissolve in your mouth.

08/14/2008: THealth from Los Angeles, CA replies: "Hi, Even my daughter who is 21 months has food allergies. I am not sure whether I can give ACV or black strap molasses. I would really really appreciate if Ted can answer this. She is allergic to tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy. Is there any natural way in which i can eliminate her allergies. She had her entire face swollen when she ate some noodles. After reading the content i realized that it was made in a facility where they process peanuts and shell fish. I am really worried about her and am looking for some natural cure. She has mild eczema on her hands too. Ted, please help. Your reply will be much appreciated. Thanks."
At 2l months old you can give her l tsp. of honey once or twice a day, but be sure that the honey is produced within a 50 mile radius of where you live, so it will contain pollens in your local area. If this doesn't do the trick, Benadryl or its generic (diphenhydramine Hcl) is a usually safe antihistamine, available without prescription and found in most places that also sell vitamins, minerals and supplements. The generic is cheaper than brand name.
