Classical Homeopathy for Children

Many parents and children appreciate the classical homeopathy approach to healing because it is safe and gentle yet effective and takes place in a compassionate setting.

Homeopathy uses small doses of natural substances to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. Because of the minute doses used, the remedies are non-toxic and completely safe when properly administered. They do not interfere with conventional medications.

Homeopathic remedies work energetically compared to dietary supplements which affect the body on a biochemical level. Healing with the appropriate constitutional homeopathic remedy takes place at a deep level and corrects imbalances.

An initial consultation for children takes approximately 1 ½ hours. Follow up appointments are shorter, about 30-45 minutes. During the first appointment, I ask a series of questions about the chief complaints and how your child experiences them, and go through a complete review of systems to find out about your child’s overall health. I always ask questions about physical, mental and emotional symptoms, traits and characteristics, regardless of the reason for the visit so I can get a complete picture of your child. We will also cover what homeopaths refer to as physical generals which includes topics such as food preferences, thirst level, body temperature, sleep and perspiration.

Whether your concerns are in the mental, physical or emotional realms – or a combination – I take the time to listen to you and your child and understand, then choose a remedy that fits the unique and special individual that he or she is.

I find working with children especially gratifying because homeopathic treatment can have such a profound effect, building strength in many different ways and providing an early start to living the healthiest, happiest life possible.

In my practice, I have enjoyed success helping children with:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

  • Focus and concentration
  • Frequent infections or colds
  • Headaches
  • Immune system

  • Nightmares
  • Obstinacy
  • Patience
  • Self-esteem
  • Self-expression
  • Separation anxiety
  • Skin issues
  • Sleep
  • Speech delay
  • Stomachaches
  • Tantrums

We have been very happy with the treatments that Judy has provided for our sons. We did a lot of research on homeopathic remedies prior to working with Judy and felt that it was a safe option to try with our son who is both ADHD and ASD. There was a noticeable improvement in behavior, self regulation, self awareness and ability to advocate for himself.  This was significant in that his teachers noticed and wondered if we had started to use medication. We also used homeopathy for his twin brother to help strengthen his feelings within our family dynamic. It is amazing to watch the improvements over the weeks and months. JLH, Quincy, MA

I just wanted to update you on Maya’s progress. She is sleeping consistently all night (yay!), has a calm disposition, and is putting words together into sentences!! I wanted to say thank you for your help. Our visits with you marked the end of a very long and scary year. I am so grateful for your kindness and expertise in helping Maya find her balance.
