Emotional regulation & coordination - ADHD breakthroughs with Homeopathy
Updated: Oct 6, 2021
If you are on the fence about trying homeopathy for your child I hope this blog will inspire you to give it a try!
Homeopathy doesn't always work this quick to turn around symptoms but the potential is always there. In some cases it just takes more time to figure out a case or overcome blocks.
Life changing transformations are possible on multiple levels - cognitively, emotionally, socially, and academically.
It's a great time to begin before next term starts!
When this 7 yo boy (diagnosed with ADHD, Development Coordination Disorder, and Tics) started his homeopathy journey back in May his mom wanted help with the following issues.
Inattentiveness & Distractedness. Slow in completing tasks.
Difficulties writing - letters different sizes, no spaces between words, reversing letters.
Weak core, slouches, needs a lot of breaks.
Homework is hugely tiring, fidgets, chews things, drink/ snack, shifting in his seat. Constant prompting.
Plays sports but tires easily, and concentration wanes.
Emotionally sensitive, cries if there's an upsetting change of plan. Big emotions!
Worries. Sensitive to criticism. Anxious about being alone at night, fear of dark. History of night terrors. Cautious with new activities.
Sensitive to loud noises.
Coordination issues, when running hands are flapping.
Hayfever with profuse green nasal discharge and wheezy chest.
After his first course of Homeopathic remedies, 8 weeks later:
School report came home - work improved significantly, completing far more writing in literacy and maths.
Work done with accuracy and speed. He was the first to finish a task one day. Teacher contacted his mother to tell her. Active participation in class.
Managing emotions better. Expresses feelings. More regulated.
Taking initiative to dress himself independently for football, still needs help with shoe laces, but put on his shinguards for the first time. Fine motor skills improving.
Number of prompts required to brush teeth has reduced.
No sign of tics since starting homeopathy.
More settled at night, self settled three nights in a row. Usually mom would have to lie down with him until he's asleep. Fear of dark resolved. No light on in room.
More confident and willing to try new things.
Coordination improving, not as floppy when running.
80% improvement in hayfever, no green discharge since starting homeopathy. Would usually need antihistamines and/ or Ventolin this time of year but currently no need.
MYMOP is an 'outcome measure' - a tool for measuring what patients want to 'come out of the treatment'. These choices are written down in the patient’s own words and the patient scores them for severity over the past week on a seven-point scale: 0=as good as it can be, 6=as bad as it can be.
