Slow learning child or Down Syndrome

General characteristics

Most children with Down syndrome have some of the following physical traits:

Short stature. A child often grows slowly and, as an adult, is shorter than average.
Weak muscles throughout the body. A child may seem to have less strength than other children of the same age. Weak abdominal muscles also make the stomach stick out. Normally, children's stomach muscles gradually strengthen around age 2.
A short, wide neck with excess fat and skin. Usually, this trait is less obvious as the child gets older.
Short, stocky arms and legs. Some children also have a wide space between the big toe and second toe.
A single crease across the center of the palms of the hands. This is called a transverse palmar crease or simian line


Facial features


Down syndrome often results in distinct facial features, such as:
Small, low-set ears.
Irregularly shaped mouth and tongue. The child's tongue may partly stick out. The roof of the mouth (palate) may be narrow and high with a downward curve.
A nasal bridge that looks pushed in. The nasal bridge is the flat area between the nose and eyes.
Tissue buildup on the colored part of the eye (iris). These areas are known as Brushfield's spots and do not affect the child's vision.
Irregular and crooked teeth that often come in late and not in the normal sequence.


Other medical conditions


A child may have other medical conditions related to Down syndrome, such as:
Cognitive disability (mental retardation). Most children with Down syndrome have mild to moderate cognitive disability.
Heart defects. About 50% of children with Down syndrome are born with a heart defect.2 Most defects are diagnosed at birth or shortly thereafter.
Diseases such as hypothyroidism, celiac disease, and eye conditions.
Children with Down syndrome are also prone to developing other health problems. For example, respiratory infections, hearing problems, and dental problems are common.

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Simian line is a great indication of down syndrome. Some children have half Simian line so they have half the problem.

If a child has learning disabilities and Down Symdrome is suspected.

Treatment of Down’s syndrome

Buy:

Bufo Rana 30 and Barayata Carbonica 30

Dissolve both medicines in one liter mineral water each in separate bottles.

Give one tsp of each medicine twice a day. One medicine a day and other at alternate days.

just curious, but if one had Downs Syndrome what improvements could they expect to see with these two remedies?

Great effort on this thread by the way.

Quicker the child is put on Barayata Carbonica or any Barium derivatives, better are the results.

Bufo Rana suits to children with small head (frog like appearence) Barayata suits to children with large head. But I recommend both medicine. In almost all cases improvments are seen.

WOW! This is so interesting. It would have never occurred to me that homeopathy could help a child with Down Syndrome.

I have the same question. How does homeopathy affect the child? Does it help them with his/her thinking?

THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS AMAZINGLY EDUCATIONAL THREAD.
