The presentation of Little L's eczema was fairly typical: it was worse in the folds of her arms and legs, behind her knees and elbows, which itched much more at night. After establishing all the symptoms of Little L's skin complaints, I also built up a picture of Little L as a girl.
I found out she adored dogs and eggy bread, and was very thirsty. Her hands and feet were often freezing, but sweaty. She liked to sleep on her tummy, had suffered from glue ear and had an almost permanently runny nose. She was ferociously independent and loved to brush her own hair and feed herself from a very young age.
But why would these things be relevant when I was trying to help her eczema? Because homeopathy is an individualised, holistic form of medicine, which means I look at the whole patient not just the symptoms of their complaint to see the whole picture. Our physical, mental and emotional responses are interconnected and combine to express our individuality. If I only asked about the symptoms of Little L's skin condition I wouldn't see her whole, individual picture.
I see lots of children with eczema. If you would like to try a form of medicine with no damaging side-effects which is free from toxicity, give me a call for a free 15-minute consultation on +44 (0)7931 905818 (or via Skype).
Testimonial from Mummy B about Carolyn's success with Little L's eczema:
Carolyn, I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me and my two girls over the last couple of years, firstly for treating my excruciatingly painful mastitis and allowing me to continue breastfeeding, and for getting rid of my eldest daughter's conjunctivitis in 24 hours, so she could go to her best friend's party. But, most importantly, for treating my youngest daughter's eczema: after four years of tears, bleeding and broken skin the eczema has almost disappeared and I no longer lie in bed listening to her scratching at night. I never realised how fantastic homeopathy is, thank you so much."
