  • anger and irritability with difficulty sleeping when really stressed (i. E, when school demands are too high)
  • colds or allergies with lots of sneezing, itchy, watery runny nose and watery eyes

Some guidelines to remember-

Potency:-
I recommend dilution of 30c. In general, though the potency selected depend on your child's symptoms

Dosage:-

  • will be same for all age:- 3 pellets 
  • repetition of dosage depends on the severity of illness. For hives, you may be giving the pellets every 1/2-1 hour, whereas for a bruised shin you may be giving pellets 2-3x/day.
  • try to give the pellets away from food and drink by at least 15-20 minutes. But don’t worry if that doesn’t happen – it still works! the main thing to avoid is minty foods, drinks or toothpaste close to taking the medicines.

You are on your way to make your own homeopathic kit!
Be sure to check with your paediatrician if you child continues to have fever for more than 2 days, if the child is acting confused, if he/she has any breathing troubles, or if he/she looks dehydrated or is in severe pain.
