Antibiotics linked to obesity in children

Antibiotics linked to obesity in children
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Children who are exposed to more antibiotics before the age of two are also more likely to become obese, according to a study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. Researchers believe that these links may stem from the fact that early antibiotic use hampers the development of a healthy community of beneficial bacteria in the body, known as the microbiome.

Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFM) starts with a fever and shortly after, the spots appear. The spots are more like blisters and can show up on the soles of the feet, palms of the hands, and/or inside the mouth and back of the throat.

Paracetamol linked to asthma in children - Telegraph | naturopathy for children | Scoop.it
Babies who are given paracetamol medicines such as Calpol are more likely to develop asthma by the time they go to pre-school, researchers have found.
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

The evidence is circumstantial, but strongly suggests a connection between early paracetamol (tylenol) use and asthma. In any case fever serves a purpose, and the discomforts for which it is used are easily treated by homeopathy...

homeopathy: does growing have to be a pain?

homeopathy: does growing have to be a pain? | naturopathy for children | Scoop.it

At the beginning of a new term, I get children and teens coming in wanting remedies for nerves - perhaps for starting at school, meeting a new teacher or for worries about a demanding exam year ahead. The one thing that I often notice is that a lot of growing has been going on during the holidays.

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

The treatment of growing pains in children, and related problems such as mysterious headaches and tummy aches is easily treated by homeopathy, as this article asserts. Also see our Perth clinic page: www.cottnat.com.au/childrens-problems-treatment.asp

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Medicines prescribed by doctors were dominated by conventional medicine (76.5%), whereas in non-prescribed drugs, both homeopathy and conventional medicine accounted for 37% each.

Measles Vaccines Part II; Benefits of Contracting Measles ~ by Dr Viera Scheibner (PhD) | International Medical Council on Vaccination | naturopathy for children | Scoop.it

Well-managed natural infectious diseases are beneficial for children. When infectious diseases of childhood are not mismanaged by the administration of antibiotics, or by suppressing fever, the diseases prime and mature the immune system and also represent developmental milestones.

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Homeopaths understand that the opportunity to contract certain epidemic diseases is beneficial for the devoloping immune system in childhood, and has health benefits later in life. Dr Viera Scheibner looks at the research evidence. The orthodox approach to both disease prevention and disease management on the other hand is hostile to the body's innate intelligence, Dr Scheibner maintains. See our Perth clinic pages:

Homeopathy for Infants

Homeopathy for Infants | naturopathy for children | Scoop.it

Guest Post Written by Dr. Syed Furqan Ahmed (The Author) INTRODUCTION Infants are a gift of life to human race, a little one in anguish is the last thing anyone would want to see, but the fact is that these little lovely angels do get sick and very often they require medical intervention to return to the playful happy health.

Mothers are usually the first one to know and inform others that there is something wrong with the child, they see, feel, smell and think of their children every second of the day

Dr Shreya's Health and Homeopathic Blog: Why Homeopathy is Best Applied in Childhood?

Dr Shreya's Health and Homeopathic Blog: Why Homeopathy is Best Applied in Childhood? | naturopathy for children | Scoop.it

Children are innocent. They still are far from catching the magnanimous falsity of this world and are true to their nature. Even though they certainly carry the various traits inflicted upon them by their parents and ancestors, they have little overlapping on these traits by artificial or acquired traits

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

It is an honour and very gratifying to treat children with homeopathy. Not only do they respond quickly to the indicated remedy for acute diseases like colds and infections, but also constitutional prescription for the child as a whole can bring about remarkable changes in behaviour and physical health. In this way the child is set up for a healthy life ahead. As well as this article by Dr Shreya, see our Perth clinic page:  http://www.cottnat.com.au/childrens-problems-treatment/

“Ear Infections: Treat All Kids” (with antibiotics)

"Ear Infections: Treat All Kids” (with antibiotics). The title of the article above got my attention, it was a well written review, by Nancy Walsh, Staff Writer for MedPage.
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Here is an article by a holistic doctor criticising recent pediatric guidelines to treat all children with acute ear infections (otitis media) with antibiotics. This is despite the fact that many are caused by viruses, most bacteria are resistant anyway, and research shows that 80% of cases resolve without treatment within two days. Dr Joan Barice looks at CAM modalities are effective. Several studies have also proved the effectiveness of homeopathy, as referenced on our Perth clinic page: www.naturopath-perth.com.au/homeopathy-and-naturopathic-treatment-of-ear-infections-and-glue-ear-perth.html

This is a very interesting study that suggests the optimal time to introduce fish, resulting in a lower risk of asthma.

Research: Long Term Study Results - Children with Atopic Dermatitis | naturopathy for children | Scoop.it

These preliminary results seem to confirm a positive therapeutic effect of homeopathy in atopic children. Furthermore, according to the data from the literature paediatric patients treated with homeopathy seem to show a reduced tendency to maintain AD and develop asthma (and allergic rhinitis) in adult age.

This research studied children with atopic diseases including dermatitis, rhinitis and asthma over an eight year period. The results are similar to what we see in our Perth clinic. See the following web pages:

Antibiotic Use In Children Creates Long-Term Health Problems

Antibiotic Use In Children Creates Long-Term Health Problems | naturopathy for children | Scoop.it

One of the most damaging long-term effects on children’s health is the use of antibiotics.  Researchers  in Ireland and Canada have found that the “use of ampicillin and gentamicin in early life can have significant effects on the evolution of the infant gut microbiota, the long-term health implications of which remain unknown.” Up to 90% of medications used in children are experimental.

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

There have now been several studies that show the long term health problems of antibiotic use in children. In particular the immune system is affected. Asthma is one condition whose incidence has been linked with early antibiotic use, and also allergic conditions in general. Antibiotics may save lives, but homeopathy as practised at this Perth clinic is a viable alternative for most conditions where antibiotics are used for non-life-threatening conditions. See:

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

At our Perth naturopathic clinic, babies and young children are the largest group of patients that we see. Homeopathic medicine works wonders for them, balancing them emotionally and physically and helping their development. However, there are alarming statistics coming through in western countries. Kids now have degenerative diseases that were once seen only in middla aged individuals, and those with a poor lifestyle and diet. These issues need to be addressed with a focus on preventative medicine and counselling on diet. See our pages:
