Homeopathy for kids is life changing, in my experience. As a mama, I have used homeopathy, both on my own and supervised by our family homeopath more times than I can count.
Because it works.
Because it’s successful.
Because it does no harm.
My friend Desiree Brazelton of Spark Wellness, has put together a fantastic list of homeopathy notes for children. We’ve all been there with a child who won’t calm, have pain that won’t subside or a cold that just won’t go away. This is a fantastic resource to print out and keep on hand for those moments when nothing else is working. All of these homeopathic remedies listed can be found at a natural foods store or co-op with a suggested potency of 30c.
