Homeopathy for shy and anxious children.
Having a child who is excessively shy or experiencing anxiousness can be stressful on the family. It may be difficult for the child to make friends, meet new people or go into new or unfamiliar situations. Parents may worry that their child is struggling in school or is having difficulty fitting in with others. As parents, we want our child to have every opportunity socially and educationally.
Anxiousness and excessive shyness is burdensome for the child as well. Often this emotional turmoil is linked to physical problems in the body such as digestive issues, dizziness and heart palpitations. And the child may find themselves struggling with low self-worth.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America 25 % of children between 13 and 18 suffer from an anxiety disorder. Anxiety can be caused by genetics, a traumatic event or environmental influences.
Unfortunately, conventional medicine does not have a lot to offer our children. Medications can have harmful and have long-lasting side effects on a child. Although Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is helpful it can be time consuming and costly. As a parent how do you help your child?
Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine that treats the person as a whole by strengthening their inner natural ability to heal. Healing occurs on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Parents will see an improvement in the overall well-being of the child. And over time the child becomes less susceptible to acute and chronic illness. Homeopathic remedies are gentle and safe for children. Homeopathy can be used as an alternative or as a complementary treatment to conventional medicines.
When an individual takes a remedy, the remedy informs the system of its imbalance and the body then works to correct the imbalance that is causing the troublesome symptoms. This is how homeopathy can be so effective without side effects; remedies are just stimulating the body’s own ability to heal!
Homeopathic treatment addresses the root cause of the shy and anxious thoughts and/or behaviors. It brings freedom and ease to the child's life which effects the whole family. And mom and dad...homeopathy also works for adults.
