Children and Homeopathy

Children and Homeopathy

Children are our most important resource for the future. We all learn throughout our lives, but it is the early years of life which are most essential for learning and developing. It is important for us to provide children meaningful opportunities and positive experiences so that they can learn and develop adequately and enjoy life. They need caring parents, loving relationships, a nurturing environment, and encouragement to unfold their inborn talents and abilities and to reach their true potential.

Samuel Hahnemann’s early education was undertaken by his parents. His father, Christian, taught him how to write and read whilst playing, and gave him thinking lessons to learn independent thinking.

Christian had found for himself the soundest conception of that which is “good and can be called worthy of man“, and implanted his ideas in his children. “To act and to live without pretence or show“ was his most noteworthy precept, which impressed Samuel more by his father’s example than by his words. In the Platonic dialogue between Socrates and Physon On The Worth Of Outward Show, which is published in Samuel Hahnemann’ Lesser Writings, their high estimation of that which is valuable and worthwhile in life finds its expression.

Christian taught his son to differentiate between the noble and ignoble, and his ideas on the first principles of creation – the dignity of mankind, and it’s lofty destiny – were the foundation for Samuels moral training. Throughout his life Samuel followed his father’s maxim “never to be a passive listener and learner”. The sound grounding which Samuel received during his formative years, coupled with the highest standards of moral values and behavior, served him well in his further development. Many other loving and supportive relationships helped to form an exceptional personality with a kindhearted, humble, faithful, dedicated and determined character. Throughout his life, Samuel remembered with love and gratitude his parents, and the masters and benefactors of his childhood and adolescence. With his activities and endeavors Samuel Hahnemann always followed the principle of the inviolability of human dignity. He left orthodox medical practice due to their lacking efficiency and the negative side effects, recognizing that more patients died from orthodox treatment than from disease. Establishing the homeopathic healing art he claimed, that the physician’s highest and only calling is to cure sick people, and to restore their health rapidly, gently and permanently.

Homeopathy works in all living organisms and allows our children to grow up in healthy ways and to progress at their own pace, without interference from unnatural sources. Thereby it provides the basis for emotional and physical wellbeing, which is the foundation for all development and learning and of primary importance in childhood.

This month we have included a variety of articles on Children and Homeopathy in the ezine to demonstrate the benefits of homeopathy during childhood, to encourage parents to try a medical method that works so well, and as a source of education for homeopathy students and practitioners.

  • excellent topic but we need more details and also how to check more articles.
    usefull topic to me.
    thank u very much.

    • You were asking for more articles … a few years back I submitted an article about children’s treatment, their temperaments and constitutions which you may find of interest?

  • Very good to know about Hahnemannn’s life and the valuable education given by his parents.
    The more I learn about homeopathy more I discover that it has everything to do with moral and dignity also, besides healing the sick. Excellent introduction and topic.Thanks.


  • Greetings Katja
    long time no chats…..
    Homeopathy works brilliantly on children because they have not been exposed to decades of allopathic suppressive meds causing layers upon layers of miasmatic DNA caos.
    The longer a parent waits to apply homeopathy to their children the worse off their kids are.
    Ideal would be when the mother is concieving-all during pregnancy-during delivery-birth……and so on.
    Classical Homeopathy has the ability to alter imbalances within DNA predisposed imprints if given at these early stages. Conventional medicine does not compare,Not even close!
    Homeopathy ROCKS!

    • Hi Gina,
      your words are soo true and I’m glad that my kids benefit from homeopathy !!

      Miss you too,

  • Thanks you all, for your nice comments. Yes, Fama, Hahnemann’s moral and dignity, and humility are indeed what impresses me so much too. Socrates, and other Greek philosophers like Plato, Homer or Euripides have inspired many idealists and humanists, and like Hahnemann’s teaching will never become outdated. That makes their ideas and insights so invaluable.

  • Every time I go to Paris I make a visit to Hahnemann’s grave in Pere Lachaise cemetery. I owe him so much!.. My health and my happiness through the possibility to help human beings and animals. And always thanks to Hahnemann I was able to save my dignity that somebody very bad tried to steal. Children are the future and even if I did not have babies, any child is my child.
    Thanks Katja for this issue. We always have to learn more.

  • “Child is the father of man” appears to be an odd saying ; but a little thinking will bring out the hidden truth. A child of today is the father of to-morrow. If the child is properly handled, kept away disease and drugs provided with cogen

  • Interesting Article.
    Gives deep inside.
    But finding new is a conviction or knowledge to take risk.
