Reaction to Homeopathic Treatments? Need Help...
My DS Ronan (just turned 2, about 37" tall and about 33 pounds) has been seeing a homeopath for about 3 weeks now. He's allergic to everything under the sun, PA, anaphylactic to dairy, eggs, environmental and food allergies, plus eczema and asthma.
The homeopath started him out on Flower Essences (pretty innocuous, I think). He's on 10 of them: Phacelia, White Rose, Daisy, Orchid, Camellia, Hawthorn, Poppy, Nicotiana, Anemone, and Lotus. 1 pilule 3x daily (I put them in his juice). At the same time she started him on 1/4 tsp of Bifidus 2x daily.
The following week she added a tincture for fungal infections (contains: Aspergillus niger D12 1ml, Candida Albicans D30 1 ml, Chlamydia trachomatis D30 1ml, Echinacea angustifolia D12 1ml, Mycosis fungoldes D12 1ml, Penicillinum D12 1ml, Tecoma D6 3 ml, Zincum metallicum D10 1 ml 36 vol % Alcohol).
The next week she added a tincture for building up his immune system. (it contains: Aconitum 4x, Baptisia 3x, Echinacea pup. 1x, Eupatorium perf 2x, Thuja 12x, Sambucus nigra 2x Alcohol 64% vol.)
On the tinctures I put them in hot water to burn off the alcohol before giving them to Ronan.
Next week she wants to start him on digestive enzymes.
At the same time I am giving him 500 mgs of Evening Primrose oil a day. Also a calcium supplement, a multivitamin and Iron. I was giving him these things before the homeopathic meds without any problems.
Since I started the tinctures Ronan has been urinating unbelievable amounts (for him). He's also been drinking a lot more fluids but I'm starting to worry. He used to need his diaper changed 3-4 times a day and even then they weren't that wet (except for his morning diaper). Now it's 5-6 times a day and they're soaked through. They're as heavy as lead weights. He used to nurse a couple of times a day and have 3 cups of juice. Now he nurses 4-5 times a day and drinks 4-5 cups of juice.
I don't know much about homeopathic meds. This practitioner came highly recommended by 3 different people. She has a thriving practice. We're seeing her again on Friday so I will ask her about this. But I'm worried. Could I be giving him something that is putting his kidneys into overdrive? Or his liver? Could I be doing harm to him by giving him these things? Or is it just his system flushing itself out? He had copious amounts of mucuous coming out of every orifice 2 weeks ago (including his eyes).
The frequent urination is the only thing that I notice. He hasn't been eating as much lately but he goes through stages.
Does anyone have any advice or information? Or can anyone refer me to a website that might? I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
