How to Deal With Trauma in Your Child's Life?

From terrorism to natural disasters, there are a number of traumatic events that constantly hurl themselves at us. Given the amount of stress it causes an adult, imagine how a child can process this information. Often traumatic events that occur in childhood can trigger phobias and anxiety disorders that last a lifetime if not dealt correctly.

Each child responds to trauma in a different way depending on the circumstances and their age and personality. What is common is that all children turn towards their parents and teachers for support in these situations. Hence, it is important to understand how to help your child deal with traumatic events. Here are a few steps you should follow.

Provide comfort
The first thing to do in a traumatic event is to reassure and comfort the child. Reinforce your child's sense of security by following a normal schedule and maintaining regular eating and sleeping habits. Encourage your child to talk and ask questions and discuss the situation with them in a way appropriate to your child's age and concerns.

Accept their needs
Children show the need for reassurance in different ways. For some, it may be the need for extra physical contact in the form of hugs while for others it may be ensuring that their favourite teddy bear is with them constantly. Be patient with children and indulge their needs in such situations.

Limit the amount of information available
Media often magnifies a traumatic event making it all the more difficult for a child to apprehend. Children can often be mislead or frustrated by media coverage of a traumatic event. Thus, it is a good idea to limit the use of television, radios and internet. As far as possible do not let your child watch the news alone.

Stay in touch
If your child goes to school, his or her teacher is the parent figure at school. Stay connected with your child's teachers and the other adults in their life to monitor changes in behavioral patterns.

Create distractions
If left alone with nothing to do, a child's mind will dwell on the trauma. Encourage them to find a hobby to cope with the negative emotions. Music and art are two good outlets for stress. You could also play board games, read or play outdoors to distract them.

Get professional help
Sometimes you may need help to deal with a traumatic event in your child's life. If your child shows signs of behavioral changes, academic problems, emotional outbursts, anxiety, depression, insomnia or social withdrawal; you should consult a professional counselor.

Asthma & Homeopathy Treatment

Asthma is nothing but difficulty in breathing due to various reasons.Here the air passages will be narrower n causes patient feel more suffocated, hard to take normal breathing, with excessive sweating, restlessness, Oppression of chest,Deathly feeing. All these depends on the Chronicity, severity of Asthma. First the acute attacks may lead to chronic with increased intensity,long duration. Some times the patient may die to the severity of symptoms like gasping .

It may be Cardiac in origin[where it is a bit critical, complicated], n mostly Lungs related[Bronchial]. Usually, we see the Br. Asthmatics only in general, in early ages, etc. Here In Bronchial Asthma, the origin may be due to the allergy of patient to certain food like sea food, cold things,Fish, pea nuts,egg, fragrance, perfumes, dust, pollution, chemical exposure n intake,Pollen etc. Stress also may act like triggering factor for Asthma. Hormonal imbalance in certain ages, Mostly hereditary also plays important role.Initially people who used to get allergic rhinitis, Atopic Dermatitis, Skin allergies from all above causes will gradually develop into Asthma, If, were not taken proper care.

Here in Homeopathy, taking treatment in initial conditions like in Allergy stages itself. Will definitely help in preventing from getting Asthma.Even after Asthma developed also, depending on other causative factors, then also It can be treatable with Homeopathy .
Few Homeopathy remedies that will work effectively for Br. Asthma are natrum sulph, where the patient suffers asthma from cold weather, cold things, damp, wet weather. In he same way, Arsenic album{asthmatic attacks will be more @ r after 12-1am/pm, Antim. Tart, Carbo.Veg[where the atient needs more ventilation, there will be gasping for air. Air hunger], sambuccus,Kali.Carb[when the asthmatic attacks are more @ 3am, Ipecauc,Blatta orientalis[in mother tincture from], Kali.Bich, Nux. Vomica[when c/o is associated with gastric c/o]. Like this though the c/o is known as same, but based on symptoms accordingly, the drugs should be chosen.
Avoiding the aggravating factors will help preventing suffering a lot. But when those are not all avoidable, then starting the treatment early will help the patient definitely, when they give picture of their suffering properly to an Expert.

Bedwetting after 6 years is abnormal. You must rule out urine infection by a culture sensitivity test, then you must try with non pharmacological methods like avoiding water after 5pm etc.

Hi, My son is 3.5 years of age. He had 3 minor blood Dysentery in 2 months interval. Every time after a viral infection/fever. Stays for 0.5 to 1.5 days only and then with application of antibiotic goes away. My child specialist said it is normal. Is this really nothing to worry? We recently started fruit juice to him. Is it anything to do with Dysentery? Please advise.

To soothe sore nipples, you can apply a warm compress on the affected area. The heat from the compress can ease discomfort and aid healing. Dip a washcloth in warm water. Wring it out and then place it on your breasts for a couple of minutes. Do this at least 10 minutes before breastfeeding. Repeat this remedy several times a day until the soreness is gone. A warm shower or heating pad can also help alleviate the discomforts of sore nipples. Please follow the above for 1 week and revert back
