Challenges in School: How Homeopathy Can Help, Part 1 of 2

“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” -Stacia Tauscher

The rigors and stresses of school are the perfect breeding grounds for bringing to the surface “problems” that could be holding students back. “Problems??!!” you say incredulously, “my child doesn’t have ‘problems!’” children’s performance issues

 

Actually, Homeopaths take a non-judgmental view of the whole thing – we simply call these things what they are – “symptoms” and symptoms are something that can (and should) be treated and healed. Said another way, symptoms are a health problem needing to be resolved. Homeopathy is one of those truly healing modalities that can help resolve inherited or acquired problems.

 

Some symptoms may be subtle & barely noticeable. But some symptoms may not be so subtle and may even be disruptive, disabling or even disturbing to the child, the family and the classmates/friends/teachers. From emotional problems to learning disabilities to illnesses, homeopathy can give students of all ages the boost of good health they so desperately need to realize their true potential.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

When I was very young, about age 13, I became very overly concerned about order and cleanliness. I spent a lot of time organizing. Over the next 3 years, this developed into an obsession. I became especially preoccupied with germs and contamination. Eventually my mom took me to a physician who diagnosed me with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). By that time, my OCD was so bad that I spent all day cleaning and washing my clothes multiple times a day. When it got really bad, I was running the washing machine all day long! The problem got so severe that I stopped having time for my homework and my grades were affected. I could no longer play sports, especially contact sports like soccer, for fear of contamination from blood or other bodily fluids (like contracting HIV or AIDS).

This morning, May 12, 2005  my son, Jonathan came hurriedly upstairs looking for me.  “Quick come down and see Dr. Phil! He has people with OCD on his program!” he shouted.  I went down to see the folks that were guests with obsessive compulsive disorder that were explaining their symptoms to the audience and Dr. Phil. “ She has the same feelings that I had, I didn’t know someone else had that very same fear!” he said. The program progressed and medicines and vitamin supplements were discussed as being helpful to the subjects, a couple of MDs discussed hospitalization for some patients.  No one had any suggestions for a CURE, only palliative modalities.
