Homeopathy and Health Forum
6 year old- stomach pains, post nasal drip, apnea, anemia, dyspneaHas your child been treated by a Homeopath before? No
LIST YOUR CHILDâ€™S MAIN HEALTH CONCERNS AND WHEN THEY BEGAN:
1. He had stomach pains to begin with, mostly when he was hungry. The pain usually went away as soon as he ate. It happened every few weeks or months at first. Then he started compaining about acid and hit could happen that he throws up. Some toast would usually makeit better, and the symptoms dissapeared. This spring he would complain about acid more and more, and then he started getting heart burn really bad.His stomach pain became more frequent and now he has them every single day, several times a day. The pain used to be mild to moderate but is getting stronger and lasting longer. Sometimes he is extremely bloated and his stool is often ill formed and if it is well formed it is often very, very pale (although it is hard to see nowadays, because he eats a lot of beets, as soon as he doesnnt, there the pale stool is again ..) I modified the diet and the acid is mostly gone and the heartburn. It happens only on occassion but he has post nasal drip during the day instead and swollows alot (water is comming back he says) I assumed silent reflux but he has other symptoms too. He has sleep apnea I am assuming from the post nasal drip or possibly anemia.
2.He bruises easily, looks very, very pail, has dark visible veins around his eyes , on his eyelids and almost black veins under his eyes.Also red spider veins under and above the eye, dark cirles and puffy eyes.His eyes are also blood shot sometimes. His heart beat is very rapid and he gets out of breath so easily,sometimes even while talking. His breathing during sleep is very shallow and he turns around alot, alot, alot. He never dreams so he lacks REM sleep obviously
3. He occasionaly complains of leg pain and he walks funny, like he is stretching the legs while walking. Last winter he would wake up and having leg pain, as soon as he got out of bed he could barely walk. That got better after a while,but then he instead started complaining about leg pain while walking. Now when he walks or stands he seems to just lose balance sometimes, he tells me "I slipped" but he stands still, it seems like his leg sometimes just "gives in". He looks extremely tired and gets tired painful legs easily.
Can you trace the origin of any of these concerns to a particular event, accident, illness or mental
His stomach has been semi-bad for a while, every coule of weeks, but easily fixible with some bicarb or apple cider vineger and food or pooping. Then it started getting worse and daily during the spring. I have been uder stress and he pays less attention and is more stubborn so we did fight more then before, although nothing major. His stomach was a bit worse duting the spring, but in june he got fever out of nowhere, no cold, no flue, no cough, no stuffed nose -just fever from nowhere and then the stomach pains became really bad, he got eye infection and his veins became visible and he got a rash under the eyes. In a couple of days he started complaining of leg pain again and he had acid reflux and got bruised easily. Maybe I was also looking for the worst as I googled alot and found horrible things. He got nightsweats, but it was very, very warm so I am not sure.
What makes your child feel better? It used to be bicarb, now it is mostly tea with anis seeds, colloidal silver sometimes. Not sure, it is upa and down, not even diet seems to have a big impact.
What makes them feel worse?
Fatty foods seems to make it a bit worse, walking too much, getting exhausted, running, smoke, mental exhaustion.
List and date any treatments, medications, herbs or remedies used now or in the past: No treatments, got one dose of morfin at 2 years for respiratory virus and ibuprofen andparacetamol.

Btw, mummy. If your homeo pharmacy will not
Give you a few pills to try- or if they give you some and then no more?
Give me the name of the pharm and I can order it and pay them for you to pick it up.
simone717 on 2017-09-20I re read this.
Do not give him any more bicarbonate. (Baking soda)
Side effects are:
Pinpoint red dots on skin
Trouble breathing with any exertion
Extreme stomach cramps and injury to the stomach if given right after
Food or drink.
How much baking Soda a day were you giving and over how many months?
Also- please make a timeline for zady -
List each year- illness and what you have and what is still going on.
simone717 on 2017-09-20Also things like antacids will cause pale stools.
Is the stool brown after beets??
Every day pale stools is not normal if you cannot figure out a cause. He then. Needs a liver enzyme panel and a test for viral hepatitis to see what
Is the cause- remedies would be different depending on cause.

Please stop giving him Chaga tea and all supplements. There are side effects of chaga of bad stomach pain, bruising and liver disease. Unlike reishi, it has not been thoroughly researched. He needs good protein, vegetables and water- only.
simone717 on 2017-09-21Dear Simone and Zady! Firstly, thank you immensly for your kindness, your beautiful words and your advise. I am sorry I have been absent, my internet was disconnected and my phone broke on top of it all. As you know, I have some struggle with paying doctors aetc, but found a diagnosing method via frequencies and got an appointment as a birthday gift from my mum (mums are the best :) ) . She said he had gastritis caused by H pylori and inflamed stomach lining as well as lot of inflamation on duodenal part. His skin is fragile and his heart is apparently under some stress. He has a predisposition for a fatty liver, but apparently no serios anemia nor lung or tonsillitis problems. His endoctrine system looked well as well as wel as his immune system. I dont know how accurate the method is, but she did get it right, and started talking about stomach problems right away. He had some acid damage in his esophagus and larnyx. She said he should not drnk water before and after meals, just like you said, and said yarrow, thyme, st ohns wort and chamomile tea would help. She also came with some food restrictions and prescribed more kefirs etc. I started him on Slippery Elm and gave him a lot of tea, and tried including and excluding different foods. Well- the results - he no longer swollows alot (that must have been just a tonsill flare up), but he still has alot of stomach pains, and they are worse as he now holds his stomach before sleep etc. His acid was gone, but now he gets flair ups more often. His diet seems to have nothing with it, as it has been pretty uniform in this period. I did include a multivitamine, which his stomach didnt like so I discontinued it. His spiderveins on his eye lids and under his eyes, as well on his chest and back are getting worse and more visable, and it seems to have nothing to do woth anemia he eats beets, molasses, liver, and test said no anemia, so I am very , very sad about it, since noting helps. He looks sick, and that makes me more worried and keeps me in a spiral of worrying. He still has apnea but nor as severe, and his breathing is shallow. His necj vein still pulsates visable while he sleeps and his heart rate is still too fast. His shortness of breath comes ang goes, but mostly its there. Was thinking of hietal hernia, but the scanning didnt show it. As his stomach pain is getting worse, I have inspected his stoll and there are black spacks in it, as well as white rise like things. He does get organic rise, so Im unsure if its parasites. His stool is not so pale anymore, but he eats a ot of beets too, and greens. There is often mucous tho, and light patches. He grinds his teeth more and looks tired,h does not act like it tho. No itchy anus, but itchy nose and eyes. Blepharitis looking crust occasionaly and some little red patch under one eyebrow. He is eating a lot, still, and hungry always, but not gaining any weight.His stomach is less bloated after the strict regime, but like I said he still has pain, even more the last 7 days I guess, and occasional acid reflux and heart burn although I am unsure of it, as yesterday it turnes out the pain is actually chest pain on the left side...I have started him on pumkin seed, I dont dare to give him cloves, Im affraid its too harsh on his belly. Today his stool had less black specks, but his stomach hurts more. I am kind of going crazy, as you can imagine. Regarding sodium bicarbonate, I gave him that only during acid reflux flare ups, once or twice a week maybe, he had already been struggling when I started giving him , and the amounts were crazy small, sp doubt it had any ill effect. Chaga he got in a tea, and only a little cup a day for 2 weeks, also weeks after the symptoms started, but have discontinued both long time ago..Have been going crazy googling since my internet is up, feels like it was easier when I coundnt.. ANyway, so grateful for your input, and so so sorry for my long posts.. Lots of love to you!
Mummy1 on 2017-11-17Oh, and ofcourse, thank you dr mahfooz!
SHould I give him 5phos or kali carb, does it still stand? He is not cold,almost ever, he sweats a lot during the night and he never gets really affected by the cold, he thinks its too hot always, because it is - I am always freezing and keeping the heat on. When we are outside and its really cold , he sometimes can comment that his hands are cold, that is probably te only part of him that he ever complains about being cold, ever, and only when its really cold outside. His heart rate is so fast, I guess its hard for him to get cold, however, his circulation cannot be the best as he gets all these spider veins or am I wrong? It is all very confusing :(
Mummy1 on 2017-11-17This thread continues beneath the following ad.Mummy,
I do not believe in diagnosing thru "frequencies"
And then treating what can be a terribly "wrong"
Diagnosis with herbs, teas and so on where you make things worse
And then get more confused.
Last time I wrote he basically had poisoning
From giving bicarb. It does not matter if it was "small"
Amount - giving bicarb after a meal or moderate liquid can tear a hole in your stomach and cause death. He had every symptom of poisoning from bicarb.
Dr Mahfooz is only on here a couple times a year-
Disregard that old advice.
No one can help you on here- he needs western med testing to see if his
Stomach lining etc is damaged. I hope you find the funds to get him treated
