Homeopathy and Health Forum
Infant reflux/hyperacidity/painMy son is 8 1/2 months old and I believe has silent reflux/hyperacidity.
Until he was 7 months old he was exclusively breastfed. Around 2 months old he starting having really bad reflux from time to time. He would arch his back and scream and could not be consoled until he spit up. I tried an elimination diet but was not able to identify any foods that aggravated the pain/reflux. It would ebb and flow and went a way for a while. Now that he is older when it comes back he does not spit up often but has very wet burps (it sounds like he spit up but doesn’t), he is very difficult to burp, he arches his back and cries, his sleep is not good (he is incredibly restless and seem to not be able to get comfortable in his body and wakes up frequently throughout the night), he grunts while feeding that seem to indicate pain or frustration, and when he does spit up it is generally preceded by crying/fussing.
Over the course of his life I feel I have been very observant and could probably offer more information if needed I am just not sure what would be pertinent.
I am trying to figure out a homeopathic I can give him to help. I have tried to do research online but I am finding mixed information. I do not live in an area where I can see a homeopath and would need to order any remedies online.
Thanks in advance for your guidance!

healer21 on 2017-11-09Main problem: Infantile reflux/hyperacidity
Patient name: Benjamin
Age: 8 ½ months
Profession: none- baby
How long patient got married: n/a If married how many children: n/a
Patient daily routine: Wake between 5a and 6:30a. Play in house or outside until morning nap starting between 8:30 and 9:30. He breastfeeds to sleep and sleeps for about an hour and 20 minutes if I pat his back when he comes to light sleep, if I do not do this he will only sleep for about 25 minutes. Play in the house, accompanies me on errands or has a play date, usually he will breastfeed once during this period. Afternoon nap starting between 12p and 2p depending on his morning nap time and length. He feeds before going down for his nap. Again he will sleep for an hour and 20 minutes with help or 25 without. After his afternoon nap he is up until he goes to bed between 6p and 7p. After he is put down for the night he will usually wake up every 30-45 min or so and require help falling back to sleep usually holding his upright and bouncing or walking is what is required sometimes a feeding. He does this frequent waking until about 9/10p. After that he will wake about every 2 hours and wants to feed until about 3am at which point he wakes up every 20-45 minutes until he awakes for the day.
How long patient suffering from this problem: on and off throughout life
What kind of pain (symptoms, sensations) patient have? I am not certain as he is not able to talk to describe it. I know he is in pain however because especially after eating he arches his back and cries, once he is asleep he is incredibly restless and appears to not be able to get comfortable, he also occasionally is horse and spits up. Additionally, while feeding he is frequently restless and grunts which seem to express frustration, pain, and/or trapped gas. He frequently has “wet burps” that sound as though he spit up but does not. He is really difficult to get burps out of and frequently is flatulent.
When symptoms / suffering / pains etc aggravates and when ameliorates? It seems like symptoms are worse after feeding and/or while sleeping.
Do you have swollen hands or feet , foul smelling gasses? It is hard to tell if his hands or feet are swollen as he is a healthy pudgy baby but he does have stinky gas.
Any light sensitivity ? Not that I am aware of but he cannot express that
Sweaty hands or feet ? No
Do you feel pronounced weakness in body ?? Not that I am aware of but he cannot express that
What you like in food and what not ? He is mostly breastfed but of the solid food he has tried so far he likes green beans, zucchini, avocado, papaya, and pears. He does not like mushrooms, spinach, or celery.
Do you feel thirsty mostly ?? Not that I am aware of but he cannot express that or do you like water ? Or mostly thirst less ?? Not that I am aware of but he cannot express that
Do you feel cold in body ? or hot ? Do you like to be warped in a blanket even in summer ? Or feel hot in body mostly and dislike hot weather etc .. Not that I am aware of but he cannot express that
what you like in food The most = sweets or salts ? Not that I am aware of but he cannot express that
Do you have any other problem beside these ? Describe in details. No
Tell doctors opinion regarding your problem as well .. What medicines you used in the past ? Name and potency ? Benjamin has not seen a conventional doctor for this as we are not going to give him a conventional medication for it. He has had well-child checks but has received no vaccinations nor taken any form of medication other than a Vit K shot at birth.
Are you dibetic or suffering from ? Or any other chronic disease .. ?? No
