Failure To Grow / Thrive is defined as arrested physical growth, where height and weight measurements fall below the fifth percentile, or a downward change in growth across two major growth percentiles associated with poor developmental functioning.
Also associated with Failure To Thrive can be hair loss, bed wetting, lack of focus, anger issues, irritability, lethargy, autism, weakness, lack of appetite. Most common are abdominal pain, abdominal distension and gas, often very foul smelling and vomiting/diarrhea. These last three will almost always indicate problems with assimilation of food.
There are many factors contributing to organic Failure To Thrive:
Although a poor appetite is usually associated with failure to thrive, many children with Failure To Thrive have good appetites and eat well. The problem is that their bodies do not properly assimilate the calories and nutrients they take in. This is where homeopathy can help.
At Homeopathy For Children, we address the underlying causes and enable your child to come back into balance as far as eating habits, food allergies and gut issues for a natural treatment for failure to grow / thrive for children.
Homeopathy will enable your child’s body to properly assimilate food! This is what makes the difference.
When kids are on the correct homeopathic medicines for even a brief period of time at the beginning of treatment, their moms will almost always say “He looks sturdier” or “She’s outgrowing her clothes really fast” or “He can run around like the other kids do and not get tired anymore.” The bottom line is that parents will simply say “He just looks better” or “Her old sparkle is back.”
When food is properly assimilated and your child has grown to the size he or she needs to be, they will have more stamina and be more resistant to illness, and infections. Going forward in life your child will be a healthier person.
Please feel free to call me if you have concerns about your child’s failure to grow. I will be happy to answer your questions, and will invite you to discuss this treatment method with your spouse or parent and call back for more questions and/or to make an appointment.
