How can I help my baby with a fever?

Having some go to homeopathic remedies at hand when your little ones spike a fever can be a game changer! We are all too aware of the overuse of antibiotics and the effect these have had in our children’s immunity and overall gut health. Treating with homeopathy and strengthening your child’s immune reserves aids in increasing their ability to fight infection.

CAUSE:

A fever is simply the body’s defense against infection. It activates the body’s immune system. I think we now have a better understanding of the importance of your child having a fever and its purpose but also your child’s ability to produce a fever. This is often taken for granted but having a robust immune system that can mount an attack and produce a fever & antibodies should not be overlooked. 

Some of my frequently used remedies when fever strikes!

ACONITE:

Fever that comes after exposure to cold, dry weather great anxiety, want for cold drinks

GELSEMIUM:

Fever with influenza, great muscular soreness, chills mixed with heat, dizziness can also be present, child is not thirsty
