Sexual Abuse In Children - Homeopathy Treatment For It!

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Sexual Abuse In Children - Homeopathy Treatment For It!

Sexual abuse of children may sound very scary and degrading, but the truth is it is a very prevalent problem. As much we may not want to believe, the number of boys and girls who are sexually abused, and that too by close family and friends is very high. This may be difficult to digest, but is the truth. The sexual abuse in male and female children is 50% in each group which is again unbelievable but true.

What is considered child sexual abuse?

Child sexual abuse includes touching and non-touching activity. Some examples of touching activity include:

  1. touching a child's genitals or private parts for sexual pleasure.
  2. making a child touch someone else's genitals, play sexual games or have sex putting objects or body parts (like fingers, tongue or penis) inside the vagina, in the mouth or in the anus of a child for sexual pleasure.

The thing to ponder, however, is that people who abuse children have a deeper problem. This could be due to a combination of social and psychological issues that the person is facing. Often helping identify the underlying problem could be a solution to the problem too, but this is rarely done. If you think a child could be subjected to abuse, look out for the following symptoms.

  1. A feeling of guilt or shame.
  2. Irritability and anger with minimal reasons.
  3. Mood swings, often uncommon in children.
  4. Feeling very isolated and sad.
  5. Very anxious and angry.
  6. Symptoms of withdrawal, not wanting to be left alone.
  7. Sleeplessness.
  8. Fatigue and pain in the back, legs.
  9. Loss of energy, appetite.
  10. Bruises (look out for these, which may not be in visible areas).

How to handle?

Given the fact that the offender is in close family and/or friends circle, the suspicion levels are quite low.

  1. The first step, therefore, is to open up and talk with either your parents or someone close.
  2. Look for support groups which can be very helpful.
  3. Do not be isolated though the urge is very strong.
  4. Build a daily schedule to ensure your routine continues (studies, work, etc.).
  5. Focus on exercise or other passions as they help you deviate your mind.
  6. Be sure to not be alone with the offender, stay in a group.
  7. Give out a strong message saying it is not acceptable, and do not keep quiet.

Homoeopathic remedies:

Homoeopathy can come rescue of the offender all well as the victim. If we see according to the point of view of who committed the crime, many reasons may come to the light and we can be treated accordingly. Usually, these criminals have a very painful and sad childhood. This could lead them to commit a crime like child abuse. 

The following are the medicines to treat such people with anti-social behaviour-

  1. Aur.
  2. Bar-C.
  3. Hyoscyamus.
  4. Stramonium.
  5. Merc.
  6. Tarentula.
  7. Med.
  8. Nux V.
  9. Syphilinear.

There are certain homoeopathic medicines which are helpful in the treatment of children who are victimized. The most common symptom is nightmares.

  1. Calc.carb. 
  2. Aloes. 
  3. Phosphorous. 
  4. Cechris. 
  5. Sepia. 
  6. Staphysagria. 

For treatment for actual physical and mental symptoms of the victim child, following homoeopathic medicines may help:

  1. Aconite. 
  2. Ignatia. 
  3. Arnica. 
  4. Staphysagria. 
  5. Calendula. 
  6. Nat. mur. 

Homeopathy is a safe and effective way to treat the victims as well as the culprits of sexual abuse. It focuses on the way patients have reacted to events and the personality of the patient. It helps to bring complete harmony of physical, mental and social well being.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If you constantly feed in relaxed mind milk is sure to form. If you give other milk never give in bottle with nipple only feed with cup and spoon. Ask privately for personal advice.

I am a mother of a 32 weeks premature baby, am unable to breast feed my baby as m not getting milk, used an electric feeding pump too but of no use, what I have to do for breast feeding my baby.

BDS, MDS

Do not worry first as it will slim down the options. You can observe in your family, friends, relatives or neighbors for a brest feeding mother. It will be good option to let your baby feed on her for the time being. Meanwhile you can visit your doctor for hormonal therapy to stimulate milk production. THANK YOU.

If it is non-alcoholic, then there is nothing to worry about. It will not affect the baby much. But it will better if she avoids it until her breastfeeding time is over.

You need to consult a physician for your diabetes problem. As far as your child is concerned your diabetes will not affect your child with your breast milk. Need not worry!

What should I do for weight gain of my 11 months old baby girl. She is 8 kilos now.

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
Dear,People who are underweight and do not have fat deposits on their body may not be getting enough calories to fuel their body. This could have a direct impact on all of their organs and may eventually lead to a variety of health problems.There are ways to get into the shape we desire and to gain weight fast. This would require understanding the reason for low weight and maintaining a diet for weight gain. In weight loss, the simple formula is to burn more calories than you consume, but to gain weight you have to also find out if there is something in your body that is preventing you from getting to the weight that you desire.

My son's age is 5. He has dust allergy normally he starts to cough a lot but in india doctor used to give Allegra and it used to work. Last 5 months back shifted to London. For the last 15 days onwards, he is constantly coughing but very less during the night time but the coughing increases after having any food or milk. The doctors are saying the chest is clear and has given ventilin evohaler.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
As the chest is clear and ventilin evohaler is not showing benifit, you can try allegra surup again. As the cough is after feed, every care should be taken that child is not aspirating during feed, which can occur if feed taken in hurry or in faulty posture.

Try offering one spoonful or two spoonfuls of the following: pureed or mashed cooked vegetables, such as carrot or potato. Mashed or pureed fruits, such as banana, cooked apple, pear, or mango. Gluten-free cereal, such as rice, sago, maize, mixed with your baby's usual milk. You can also give cauliflower. You could try starchy vegetables, too, such as sweet potato. Once your baby is eating these fruits and vegetables happily, you can move on to other foods from the main groups: bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta dairy foods meat, fish, eggs, and beans introducing a range of foods and tastes at this stage may reduce the chances of your baby becoming a fussy eater later on. It's important to offer your baby savoury foods as well as sweet at this stage, so she learns to like a range of flavours.

For your baby breast feeding is the best way to thrive. Learn techniques to feed your child regularly if you are a house wife. If working then cow's milk is the best provided you get it pure. Every time you have have to give freshly used preboiled milk after removing the cream. Don't use leftover milk again, if giving by bottle preboil it. Feed at the room temperature or lukewarm.

My daughter 3 years and 9 months. She was suffering from cold and cough. Especially at nights. We made all tests and doctor says some asthmatic related problem and giving antibiotics, and we are using them from 2 years. She has not recovered. Even heart related check up also done. Doctor says while she grows she will recover, as she has nothing wrong in her health. But the cold and cough were suffering her lot, especially at nights. What we have to do.

Vitiation of kapha dhatu in children, which is more evident at this age, can be controlled by simple herbal remedies esp designed by ayurveda and in use for centuries. These are little slow but safe, no side effects and are for longer use. It's my experience that you can actually prevent bronchitis and asthma like problems with the constant use of these things for few weeks/ months as per need. Generally there is always relapse of problems if synthetic and toxic drugs are used at this age and slowly antibiotics and anti asthmatics will be needed in 90% of such cases throughout life. Steam inhalation, herbals with honey and some mineral based medicines simply prepared at home will definitely improve the quality of life of child.

Ideally child should entirely breast fed for the 1st 6 months. However if mothers milk is insufficient and cow's milk or formula feeds is started then. You can try small portion of ripe and mashed banana, chikoo, mango. Pears should be cooked and mashed.
