Children are the pride and joy of their parents. They are the future and hope of our society. There is nothing more disturbing for parents than when their children become ill. Fortunately, kids are very vibrant and vital, so when it comes to a disease, they usually fight it much easier than adults would.
Homeopathy is one of the modalities used by naturopathic doctors to treat kids because it is one of the most gentle, simple and accurate ways of addressing kids' health issues.
One of the most common challenges faced by parents today is the so-called bad behavior of their children. Some of the causes of behavioral problems in children are food allergies or sensitivities (such as sensitivities to food additives or to refined carbohydrates like sugar and / or sucrose, deficiencies – such as iron deficiency, which is the most common and heavy metal eg, iron toxicity).
Other causes include lack of creativity in their day-to-day lives, emotions reflecting their parents' moods, strong will and early understanding reflected in their keen moral sense.
One way a parent can tell whether his / her children are experiencing behavioral problems is to start noticing the difference (if any) between how active and creative the children are allowed to be, compared to how much the children would actually like to be.
We start putting restrictions on kids at a very early age. They have to understand the rules of the "game" adults play (a game called life) and have to obey them before they even understand these rules. This is why kids need (more so than adults) an outlet to make and express their own rules.
Some kids like to play a little longer than we think they should, some might enjoy a particular sport, while others are touched by music or any other kind or art.
Regardless of the type of hobby or activity they enjoy, parents should encourage their children to express their feelings. This encouragement inevitably helps balance any behavioral problems.
Another way parents can make a difference in their kids' behavior is diet. Avoiding overfeeding, keeping regular meals, cutting down milk (research shows too much milk is linked to violent behavior), eliminating toxins (such as artificial flavoring, coloring and preservatives) and eliminating possible sources of food sensitivities are a few steps one can take around improving their kids' diet.
Pay special attention to milk, peanuts and oranges in kids showing signs of malicious behavior.
When the behavioral problems are primarily emotional in origin, the parent should ask, "Who is rally feeling like this right now?" When family tensions run high, the children might pick up on somebody's emotion and act it out.
Once the emotion is returned to the owner (who, by virtue of being an adult, can handle it differently), the children suddenly feel better.
Given the chance, kids are truly the pride of their parents and without behavioral problems.
