each time your child got a cough, it gets an antibiotic?
Maybe you realized
already that your child gets less resistable after each chest infection than it
was before, or that the symptoms the illness shows become stronger every time?
it will need more and more antibiotics, which are of course not only affecting
the chest and its organs, they are affecting the functions of the whole body.The
side-effects of individual drugs are often startling enough. Research has shown
that during a stay in a hospital patients receive an average of nine different
medicaments. The unknown effects of numerous medicines given together to an already

A homoeopath doesn't prescribe
one medicine for a child's cough, another one to treat the fever and a third one
against the 'neurodermatitis', if these symptoms appear at the same time.The use

the patients self-healing power is so strong that only a small stimulous is needed
to start the healing-process. Once the healing-process begins, it is best to do
nothing more but let the process continue in its own way. Since the medicines
are catalysts to the body's own defence, continual repetition is not needed. In
the treatment of chronic illnesses months or sometimes years can pass before reintroducing

children, because they react really phantastic to homoeopathic remedies and I
can be sure that it doesn't have side-effects, that it is safe, gentle, and that
