    [post_content] => I sometimes think we're missing a trick by not promoting how good homeopathy is at helping with emotional difficulties.

This was the main finding of my recent research trial and is certainly the thing children most often want help with when they come for homeopathic treatment.

At this month's (September 28) Society symposium on promoting health and wellbeing among the young, I will be looking at what sort of emotional problems children present with and offering some suggestions for how to approach the case, some useful remedies, and some case examples.

Children with ADHD have particular problems with their emotions. Typically, if they’re boys, this means temper tantrums, and if they’re girls, anxiety and later on depression.

It can be tricky separating out common from strange, rare and peculiar symptoms (SRPs), particularly if you don’t treat ADHD very often. so I will be highlighting what is common to the condition, and look at some SRPs I have encountered.

However, I won’t just talk about children with ADHD; after all, we treat children, not diagnoses, and a diagnosis is just a collection of symptoms.

But if we are to explain what we do to those who don’t know about homeopathy, we do need to be able to explain that we can potentially help with specific conditions.

One of the most important things to explore in children particularly is where their difficulties originated. Did mum have a particular experience during pregnancy? Was the child exposed to anything particular as a baby? Is there a family predisposition? Did something happen at school?

It is a unique selling point of homeopathy that we can address these aetiologies with appropriate remedies. I will explore different methodologies which might be appropriate to different aetiological presentations.

This generation of children is exposed to challenges for which particular robustness is required if they are to navigate its choppy waters healthily and happily. Families are often at sea as to how to best help their children. It is a joy to support them on their journey and explain that there are some solutions.
