  • Hi Indhu and Poornima,

    Is Homeo helps learning disabilities, wow!!

  • Off late, I have been visiting the homeopathy doctor for my kids because she is new and has become my friend. Its great that i do not have to stuff anti biotics down their throat. But the thing is, my son went and had all the homeo tablets in one shot ‘because they were tasty’.

    • It’s great that you switched to homoeopathy:) Also please keep the medicines away from the kid as kids tend to eat them because of their sweetness but it has medicinal properties which is not good to take without any proper indications.

  • I am also a certified homeopathic therapist and I agree with that people think that homeopathy works only in chronic cases. it in only a myth. homeopathy works well, when symptoms matches. great post about homeopathy.

  • I have heard a lot about homeopathy and your post comes as a brief summary of its knowledge.
    I had cured my kiddos tonsils with homeopathy in his childhood.
    Thanks for sharing as I was not aware of homeopathy treatment in learning disability.

  • Hi Poornima,
    Great post, Is Homeo helps learning disabilities, wow!! It’s new to me. Is there anything that helps kids in writing.

    • Thank you:)For difficulty in writing(dysgraphia) it’s related to fine motor dysfunction and a proper case taking and medicine would help the kid to improve. Check with a homoeopathy doctor nearby.

  • This is an informative post. Didn’t knew homeopathy medicines can work in short as 15 min. Was having a notion that it takes longer period to show effect but treats the cause from roots.

  • Since my daughter was 6 months old i have been giving her homeopathic medicines as and when she needed them, She responds well to them and they are my first choice. A very informative post

  • Off late i have realized that homeopathic treatment is a sustainable treatment for the kids. It is easy to feed them for the sweet taste and then it treats the root cause. Have really found it effective. n u have written a very crisp article on this.
