GERD 3 month old baby

Hi, I have a 3 month old baby who has GERD since birth,I noticed it first in the hospital on day 2. I am Exclusively breastfeeding and have cut out all dairy from my diet. On the advice of my doctor I have been giving my daughter losec :-( I have stopped since reading this website. My daughter spits up after each feed and it in excruciating pain when not using losec. I cant lay her flat to change her nappy nor to sleep or play on the floor. I am VERY keen to start nat phos 6x but have had great difficulty in finding it. I have got it on the internet in pellet form plus I have ordered arnica in pellet form. Please can someone help me with dosage and offer me some guidance? I am new to homeopathy and really want my daughter to get better.

Thank you, I will order this remedy. Can you please tell me if this will rectify dairy intolerance or what is the exact use of this remedy? I have just taken my daughter to see a dietician who believes strongly that she has a dairy and soya intolerance. Can this remedy help? What is nat phos used for, I hear lots of people using this for reflux and gerd?

Where can I get this remedy? I can't see anywhere online
tottyboy99 9 years ago
if you are in the usa, you can order off this site. Top of
the forum first page, it says Remedies shop.

If you are not in usa, order from Helios Homeopathic Pharm/uk.

If you want biochemic cell salts like nat phos 6x - if you are
in usa, I prefer Dr. Reckeweg German made and you can
order online from DKO naturals in Canada- they ship
very quick.

If you are in the UK or Europe get cell salts online from
Ainsworths homeopathic Pharmacy in the UK.

Aethusa is a remedy from a plant called Fool's parsley.
The key symptoms of it are intolerance of milk and has
a love of animals. In babies, they vomit large curds of milk
and there is vomit and diarrhea of newborns, colic followed
by vomiting and dizziness, inability to hold up head,
yellow green diarrhea, and bubbly sensations going on around
the navel. Usually worse from 3 am to 4 am. Very little
thirst and better in open air.

The above are some of the main things looked at in selecting Aethusa for colic
in babies.

You can go to top of forum, and see the alphabet. Click
on any letters of remedies and read on all the symptoms
for which they are given.

Glad to note that you have prescribed my default remedy, Nat Phos 6x but you must indicate the dosage which is half tablet dissolved in milk to be given after every feed.
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
The description is not very much like my daughter. She does not vomit curds, it is straight milk, she HATES being cold so therefor doesn't like outdoors, she has extremely good control of her head for this age and her worst time is between 6pm - 9pm. She also wants to feed constantly and has a great thirst!

She has a diastasis recti and I wonder if this can be to do with some of the reflux?
tottyboy99 9 years ago
The point of the homeopathy is to boost the patients life force
so that their immune system is strong and their own life force
heals them.

You have more going on here than simple gerd. My first choice would
be to see a good homeopath near you in person. One who only
practices homeopathy and has good experience with minimum 5 years.
Homeopaths have an entire set of diagnostic tools they can use when
they see someone in person- especially babies and small children.

If you want to tell me what city you are in and have me look up some
options for you, I would be happy to do that.

The other person on this forum who is very good with babies is
Maheeru. He is not on here everyday and is quite busy with private
patients and you could email him- Maheeru At Rocketmail dot com ( have
to write the email out bc you can't put them on posts)

I live in Northern Ireland. There is someone in ballymena who practices homeopathy so I might give them a call and see if they can see her. Thanks for all your help :-)
tottyboy99 9 years ago
Hi, google Hans Weibrecht homeopathy, He has two
clinics , one in donegal. He is an excellent, well trained
homeopath and contributes on a lot of professional
homeopathic forums. He even makes house calls.

I had a homeopath and a pediatrician for my kids and
that is a great combination, hardly ever had to use
the pediatrician.

simone717 9 years ago
Hi joe, I am glad you have replied to my post. Today my nat phos 6x has arrived. I have also received the arnica 30c and aethusa. I could only get the nat phos and arnica in pellet and form but managed to get aethusa in liquid form. I am keen to start your therapy but will await instructions from you on dosage Etc. I too would like to take nat phos 6x for weight loss, can I do so whilst breastfeeding?
tottyboy99 9 years ago

It is interesting to note that in spite of Simone recommending another consultant who was supposed to be a specialist with babies and later suggesting that you consult a homeopath in Ireland, you have decided to stay with my 'Joepathy' which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies with singular success on my Website (joedelivera.com) which you are invited to visit, and on the ABC. My therapy usually acts within the hour when the baby who was suffering from reflux, changes into an angel with no worries for the mother.

You state:
'my nat phos 6x has arrived. I have also received the arnica 30c and aethusa. I could only get the nat phos and arnica in pellet and form'
I do hope however that you have ordered and received the Nat Phos 6x Biochemic remedy which is always in tablet form and NOT the Homeopathic version which is in the little 3mm pellets which do not work.

I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD below:

It is very likely that your baby suffers from Gastric Reflux aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease)

The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. If you discover that baby does not respond to the half tablet you can increase the dosage to a full tablet given after every feed but not to exceed 5 tablets in 24 hours.

It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that this remedy (Nat Phos 6x) will also help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

You state:
'I too would like to take nat phos 6x for weight loss, can I do so whilst breastfeeding?'

You will note that it is not only you that will be taking Nat Phos 6x as your baby too will be taking this remedy which you will give her first in a half tablet dose and later if she does not respond as expected, in a full tablet DISSOLVED in milk.

You will NOT give her Arnica nor Aethusa Cynapium 6c as I would NOT recommend either for a 3 month old infant.

Please report her response in 24 hours or earlier if you discover that she has improved in her reflux..
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
Dear Joe, I appreciate all help from yourself and all the experienced homeopathy experts. Simone alerted me to your therapy and I have read up on it and believe that this is the answer to my daughters reflux. Donegal is a long distance away from me and it would not be possible for me to travel this distance with three children.
I can confirm that the nat phos 6x is new era biochemical tissue salts and I will not give my child anything that you would not advise. The arnica is something which will be useful in the future for everyone in my household.
I have given my daughter the first half tablet in milk after her feed and so far has reacted well. She winded easily and posseted only a small amount. I will keep you informed of her progress. I thank you and everyone for helping my daughter and I with our problem and only wish I had heard of this therapy a long time ago.
tottyboy99 9 years ago
You have obviously got the correct Biochemic Cell Salt and I am glad to learn that baby has responded positively to her first dose of a half tablet of Nat Phos 6x as I predicted. If she continues in her recovery from her reflux, you can stay with the half tablet but otherwise it is quite safe to give her the full tablet dissolved in milk.

I am surprised that other homeopaths just REFUSE to use this simple, effective and safe remedy Nat Phos 6x to treat cases of GERD both in babies and in adults. They do so because they were never taught to accept that the NON CLASSICAL approach to healing with standard Homeopathic remedies which I practice, is equally effective and certainly more direct and positive in CURING the patient, than the classical approach which fields a questionnaire with about 25 questions which some consultants have insisted that the mother of the poor suffering baby, answers in detail before they prescribe the remedy which invariably does not work.

I have not qualified in Homeopathy as it is NOT my profession. I have however read deeply on this science and have developed my own take on its use which they, the classical sect, classified as 'Joepathy'. Suggest you put this term into Google and read the many links numbering over 1500 that are listed in the public domain.

My Joepathy comprises the result of over 40 years of study and about 25 of helping suffering humanity, which I do completely free of charge, at my advanced age of 84.
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
Glad baby is doing better.

Joe- you are not a doctor, and either am I, so seeing that her
child has diastasis recti, etc, I felt there may be other areas
in which the babies life force as a whole could be boosted up,
besides nat phos for gerd.

Maheeru is very good with babies and pregnancy and new mothers,
general health and of course seeing a professional homeopath in
person to look at babies overall condition is the most
prudent thing to do, if possible. Internet prescribing does not
come close.
simone717 9 years ago

In your post addressed to me you state:
'Joe- you are not a doctor, and either am I, so seeing that her
child has diastasis recti, etc, I felt there may be other areas
in which the babies life force as a whole could be boosted up,
besides nat phos for gerd. '

You will note that I had predicted that baby will respond positively within the hour to my default Nat Phos therapy and I am glad that the mother of the baby has acknowledged that her baby had 'reacted well and winder easily'. She will hopefully keep me informed of baby's response in the next few days.

You must understand that one does not need a certificate to practice as a Homeopathic physician and treat patients free of charge as I have done for the last 25 years. You would by now have discovered that I do NOT accept that the standard 'case taking' process is necessary to treat a patient as I have proved that my therapy aka 'Joepathy' has helped to CURE many patients both on the ABC forum and on my Website in a manner that classical homeopaths envy.

I invite you to visit the link below to realise the trauma that I was faced with in the early days when every post I made was challenged by the classical homeopaths who all seemed to be determined to oust me from any Fora as they would then be left in peace to practice their classical homeopathy and would have prompted anyone else other than me to give up in disgust. I believe that it was envy that prompted to do so as my Joepathy CURED while their classically generated remedy invariably did not.


There are many more such posts which you can access on this forum and mine and if you so desire I can dig them up for you later.

I have always been a person who stands up for a principal and in this case I have proved that it is not at all essential to use the classical diktat drilled into the students of Homeopathic Colleges to 'Treat the SYMPTOMS presented by the patient with a SINGLE remedy'. The classical homeopaths who were my chief detractors have accepted that my therapy which they termed 'Joepathy' also worked in the link above. I maintain that my Joepathy works even better and more quickly than all their classical homeopathy put together. I see that you spend your time in reading the many posts on this ABC and you can verify my statement yourself.

I have often stated, as I have on this post that I am NOT a professional Homeopath. I have been interested in this Science for the last 45 years after I was cured of my frequent colds which I seemed to attract every week at that time and decided to make an in depth study of Homeopathy for which I discovered later still, that I had a certain 'feel' to help suffering humanity. I got a selection of Homeopathic remedies from India as they are not available here in Sri Lanka where I live and have a stock of around 600 remedies in various potencies in my stock which I use to help anyone who consults me, free of charge

You may like to know that right now I am trying very hard with the backing of the daily press, to ensure that the medical profession uses Eupat Perf 200 in the Wet dose to CURE Dengue which is now an epidemic in this Island with over 200 fatalities for this year and 500 patients being warded DAILY for this mosquito borne disease. The doctors have been ordered by their Medical Council not to use my remedy which I have offered to supply free of charge in the Wet dose to the hospitals but have met with refusals. Doctors frankly admit at various meetings and conferences that I have been invited, that there is no CURE for Dengue in their medical Pharmacopeia but they still refuse to accept that Homeoapthy can CURE Dengue. They have agreed to 'test' my remedy water in Oxford with the possibility of giving me a response in 5 YEARS !!!

I would appreciate if you will please emulate the example of the many classical homeopaths who used to criticise me on a daily basis and in the future NOT criticise or belittle my efforts in helping patients on this ABC of which I have been a member since the time it was founded by Simon Broadley who used his own software to do so at a time when this form of software was in its infancy.

I have proved that my Joepathy works in a manner that I feel is far more effective than the classically generated form of giving a dose of the remedy today and await results in a week. This type of therapy which is used in professional homeopathic practice invariably ensures that the patient is NOT CURED and has to be given the next dose at the next visit, which does not come free.

In my case I use the 'This for That' form of therapy and it invariably works as it has done in the case of this baby I am treating on this thread.
Joe De Livera 9 years ago

I was not belittling your therapy. I was suggesting that due
to 'other' conditions of the baby that are not Gerd, the
baby would benefit from an overall constitutional remedy-
that could be taken in addition to nat phos.
simone717 9 years ago

I had not noticed the reference to Diastasis recti which I presume the paediatrician used to impress the mother of the baby with this term, which I had to look up on the Web.

Here is the Medline definition of this term:

'Diastasis recti is a common and normal condition in newborns. It is seen most frequently in premature and African American infants.'

Other sites state that this condition usually resolves itself with time.

You will observe that the chances of a 'constitutional remedy' being prescribed by Maheeru or any other classical homeopath to resolve this somewhat unusual condition of baby, would be extremely remote even though you have classified him as a specialist with babies.

It is just that I react and get irritated with people like you, who however well meaning you may be in your efforts to help patients, tend to jump into some of my posts to either criticize me or to suggest someone else to treat the patient as you perhaps feel that it is only when a qualified homeopathic 'doctor' with a diploma prescribes a remedy that it can be considered valid and I have proved otherwise throughout the long period that I have been associated with the ABC and other Fora including my own Website.

As you are no doubt aware by now, I do NOT sport that piece of paper to qualify as a 'doctor' and do NOT accept classical homeopathy as to me the essence of my therapy is the CURE of the patient's ailment.

I do hope that you understand my position on the therapy I use aka 'Joepathy' and just leave me alone to help patients who ask for help.

Hi I just wanted to report on baby. Last night she was quite restless and refluxed some through the night. She did spit up a little but it mostly swallowed again. When taking the nat phos I felt like I had heartburn which I do not normally. I am keen to continue as I hope to see improvement soon and will not be returning to the meds prescribed by my doctor. Is this the correct action?
tottyboy99 9 years ago
I believe that the half tablet which I prescribed is not sufficient to deal with her GERD and
that it is time to increase the dosage of Nat Phos from half to a FULL tablet.

Report her response after the next feed.

'When taking the nat phos I felt like I had heartburn which I do not normally.'

This is very strange as Nat Phos 6x helps to accelerate the passage of food down the gut, thereby ensuring that there is no production of Hcl which is the reason for GERD. Continue with the 2 tablets you are taking and report your response in 24 hours.

I have not felt this sensation today, perhaps it was heartburn from my meal and I have been too hasty to report. I am feeling well today, not sluggish as usual. I will report on the baby after her next feed. Thank you for your continued support :-)
tottyboy99 9 years ago
Glad to learn that NP was not the cause of your distress.

Are you taking the Arnica 30c as prescribed? This remedy will help you to be more rested at night which results in a heightened state of energy as reported by patients worldwide.

I have taken a dose of Arn 30 nightly for 17 years.
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
I am taking the arnica as prescribed and slept well (despite the night feeds!) and today baby is contented and sleeping! Can I take probiotic at the same time as this remedy? So far I haven't taken it but I do normally.

tottyboy99 9 years ago
Yes go ahead with the Probiotic as it may also be good for baby who will get it in your breast milk..

What is the brand you use and how often do you take it?

You can also consider eating Yoghurt as it has all the lactobacilli which are not added to the Probiotic as the lactos are short lived and cannot be put into pills.
