Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that
utilizes minute doses of carefully selected ingredients
made from plants, mineral sources and many other natural
substances, to enhance the body's natural healing
processes. Its strength lies in its marked effectiveness
as it takes a holistic approach towards the sick
individual through promotion of inner balance at mental,
emotional, spiritual, and physical levels.

Homeopathy recognizes the inseparability of body and mind.
Homeopathy treats the patient as a whole and not just the
disease. Homeopathy believes in a Holistic, Totalistic,
and Individualistic approach. Homeopathy works on the
principle of "Similia Similibus Curenter" which means, "Let
Like be cured by Likes", derived from the Natural Law of
Nature. In this the medicine administered to the diseased
individual is such that if given to a healthy person it
produces a similar disease as found in the diseased
individual. Thus when the pathogenesis of the medicine
matches with the symptoms of the diseased person, this
medicine is called the "Similimum" which certainly leads to
cure. Unlike any other system of medicine, the remedies
used in Homeopathy have been previously proved on healthy
human beings therefore their actions and reactions are
fully known to the Homeopaths. This makes Homeopathy the
true and rational art of healing.

Homeopathy is growing in popularity all over the world
because its medicines are gentle, non-toxic aids, harmless.
This makes Homeopathy safe to use when many other types of
treatments may not be recommended, such as in case of
newborns, children and during pregnancy.

A growing number of parents today are concerned about the
side effects of conventional drugs, especially in the
treatment of babies and young children. Here are some of
the reasons why every parent should consider Homeopathy for
their children.

Homeopathy is a safe system of Medicine for children.
Primarily, any medicine administered to children must be
free from harmful effects. Unlike antibiotics and other
such medicine, Homeopathic pills do not affect digestion;
does not lower resistance power; does not produce allergies
and does not harm even if taken for long-term.

It is every Homeopath's surveillance that children being
more susceptible, respond quicker to Homeopathy. Homeopathy
is exceptionally effective for almost all sorts of
complaints occurring in children. Contrary, to the common
misbelief, Homeopathy is fast acting and brings back the
healthy state in the quickest possible manner; be it fever,
cough-cold, diarrhea, asthma, etc.

Homeopathy helps in building body resistance in children
who habitually have recurring infections due to lowered
resistance power. Homeopathic treatment being based on
the ~Constitutional Approach~ treats the disease at the
root level, hence enhancing the resistance power of the
child. As a result of which the child will not fall sick
frequently. Homeopathy is also considered child friendly as
the Homeopathic pills being sweet in taste, is accepted
readily by children, and kids never make a fuss while
taking Homeopathic medicines. It is so easy to take that it
can be easily given even to a one-day-old neonate without
forcefully inducing in them, saving them from lot of
crying, and trouble.

All health-conscious mothers today must know which all
diseases can be treated by Homeopathy. It is not possible
to enlist all those innumerable conditions where Homeopathy
is found effective. The ones listed below are some basic
problems that most kids go through and we see them in our
