Children and Homeopathic medicine
Homeopathic medicine could possibly be of benefit in promoting the healthy development of children in common childhood illness such as ear infections. Homeopathic medicines can be given to children and babies- including newborns- with very little risk of toxic effects.
Simple to administer and inexpensive, Homeopathic medicine tastes good too!
Parents attempting to provide their children with the best health care possible, often give course after course of antibiotics for common recurring illness such as ear infections. However, many are now seeking alternative treatments for their children (and themselves) when they fall ill.
We live in a world of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) which the World Health Organization (WHO) describes as ‘‘a looming crisis in which common and treatable infections are becoming life threatening.’’ AMR is on the increase in Australia & evolving at a pace exceeding pharmaceutical companies’ ability to create newer antibiotic drugs.
Evidence-based advantages attributed to the use of Homeopathic medicine for ear infections include lower antibiotic prescription fill rates during watchful waiting in otitis media (ear infection), fewer and less serious side effects, the absence of drug-drug interactions and reduced parental sick leave from work. Homeopaths acknowledge that the body of evidence for homeopathic medicine is small but growing and much more research needs to happen.
