MC: A recurring cough
Pierre: Please tell me what is going on?
Could you please give me some of her histories?
Can you tell me what the breathing sounds like?
I present this case because sometimes unbeknown to them people can even tell me what the remedy needed is. In this case, the mother made a very astute observation for her child.
When courses of antibiotics are given over and over again the inner balance causing the problem is not addressed and the disorder keeps on recurring.
I always ask parents what the breathing sounds like. This was the first time I ever got an answer that was a point on. Most of the time people say it is a deep cough.
It is very unusual to have parents totally nail an observation like that. From the homeopathic point of view, it is the essence.
Speaking as a father, I offer two recommendations as follows:
Another recommendation I make is to limit milk intake during the winter. If you have a child who gets colds, coughs, and ear infections, give up the milk during the winter months and see your child thrive. This is outside the homeopathic realm but from one parent to another it will do wonders for your child’s ears. You can replace milk with any of the alternatives available, most of them rich in calcium.
