Child obesityHello I'm trying to choose a remedy for my 10 year old son who has gained a lot of weight through overeating since the divorce of myself and his father.
He is quite a reserved young chap who does not like others to worry. He is sensitive, caring and empathic and is moved to tears by talking about anything emotional/feeling.
He tries to cover his emotions with bravado and I feel is carrying the excess weight as armour and eating for comfort. He is almost constantly hungry and has also begun to bite his nails.
I have identified Ignatia or Nat Murs as possible remedies to help him with his grief and anxiety around this traumatic event but would be grateful for confirmation or alternative suggestions. Thank you.

He is still overweight, although he doesn't necessarily overeat.
He still nibbles his finger nails but is biting them less than before.
A new issue is the occurance of fungal skin infections on his hands. The gp diagnosis was fungal and steroid cream was prescribed which we do not wish to use. We are using aloe Vera topically, black walnut extract to kill parasites or candida overgrowth that may be underlying.
Would nat mur still be applicable in this case? Is it worth revisiting?
I feel that the emotional issues are perhaps surfacing for healing, manifesting more outwardly. We have made dietary changes (anti candida and probiotics).
