Little Mountain Homeopathy Client Testimonial
My 3 year old son entered a very trying period where he was very easily frustrated and flying into rages for no apparent reason. I took him to Little Mountain Homeopathy where we met with Sonya and had a very thorough conversation about his personality, likes, dislikes, symptoms, etc. Within a couple of weeks of taking the recommended remedy my son became much more even tempered. He no longer flies into rages nor has temper tantrums and seems much more content.
Sonya was able to discern that my son had an emotionally challenging period a few months earlier and that he needed a supportive remedy to help him get back on track.
I wouldn’t hesitate to take my son back to Little Mountain Homeopathy should something else come up. I was impressed with his care and the change in his behaviour.
The first line of defense against excessive childhood aggression and/or temper tantrums is adequate parenting and discipline. Parents may find books such as “The Happiest Toddler on the Block” by Dr. Karp a useful guide on how to handle their out of control child. Parents who have tried these techniques without success should consider homeopathic treatment for their child.
Contrary to societal beliefs, aggression and temper tantrums are often not signs of inadequate parenting. Often the aggression is just a symptom of the child’s deeper emotional disturbance which may have been triggered by either by an emotional or physical trauma. Genetics also often play a role. Homeopathy heals the disturbance by bringing the body/mind back into balance. Once the disturbance is healed, the aggression and tantrums lessen and gradually subside.
Homeopathy has also been proven to be useful in the treatment of ADHD.

Diagnosis: Attention Deficit and Disruptive Manipulative Behavioral Disorder with Oppositional Defiant Disorder
The child was bought to the clinic with an unusual symptom that she would pass urine and stool daily as soon as she would reach the staircase of her house. To avoid this, the mother would daily pick up the child from the school, would make her pass urine and /or stool in school; but still, this did not solve the problems. In spite of this, the child would still pass stool and urine on the staircase, even when there were no apparent reasons in doing so.
On detailed interview of the child separately, some interesting facts came forth.
The child was extraordinarily intelligent, smart, witty and had a lot of presence of mind. When I slowly probed into the depth of the case, the child revealed that the mother gave more attention to her brother who was 3 years younger to her. Secondly, their mother would lock them and leave them all alone in the house. Thirdly, the child always felt that her mother did not give her things which she desired, and would often hit or punish her. The child said she acted in this manner on purpose. She would do this act of passing stool and urine to take revenge.
The child said, “It was my way of taking revenge on my mother, who is not treating me in the right way”.
Basically, the child was very mischievous and disobedient. She would never obey any instructions given by the teacher or any elder. She was very destructive by nature and would tear off books or break toys. Her attitude was very revengeful; she would often hit other children.
The child often blames her mother for her misbehavior. The child would be angry, resentful and often spiteful or vindictive towards her. Because of the child’s such behavior it had caused a significant impairment in her social and academic functioning.
She would often lose her temper.
She would argue with adults.
She would actively defy and refuse to comply with adults’ requests or instructions and often deliberately annoy people.
The case satisfies the diagnostic criteria 313.81 of the Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

The case was clear and after evaluation, she was prescribed Tarentula Hispanica 200. The child was again seen after 4 weeks the child was less aggressive and had stopped passing stool/urine in the staircase. She showed signs of resentment and jealousy against her brother. The remedy was repeated. Over a period of few months the child kept on improving; she was much calmer and her interaction with people improved she was more obedient. The remedy helped in channelizing the child’s intelligence into doing good things and becoming less destructive. The child improved remarkably in her scholastic performance and received the best student award during the later years.
Alan was five years old with sandy blonde hair, a freckled face, and a mischievous gleam in his eye His mom was at her wit’s end. She hoped and prayed that homeopathy could solve his behavior problems. She described Alan as “disobedient.” Listening was not his strong suit. Alan’s parents had tried many different parenting techniques to no avail. He balked no matter what approach they tried. It took the youngster thirty to forty-five minutes to get dressed in the morning. He would stop, then start, then riddle his parents with questions. There was no getting through to him. He was unable to focus. If Alan’s parents told him, “no, you can’t”, he would “lose it” and become hysterical. The child screamed, cried, and threw things. He was very stubborn, “He could go from black to white in a matter of seconds. Something snaps.”
The youngster engaged in slugging matches with his mother. He yelled at her “in a cursing tone but without the four letter words”. He threw tantrums in public during which he pushed his mother and asserted vehemently that he was not afraid of her. Alan told her loudly and repeatedly that she was “a mean, bad mommy”. It embarrassed her terribly. He pushed and hit others, but when they did the same to him, he insisted, “It’s not fair”. Alan got along better with other kids when he was in charge. He liked to wrestle and play karate.
Alan had a fixation on violence and weapons. Fearless, he was terrible with animals. His parents had to tell him ten times a day to leave the cat and dog alone. The child was constantly “on the go.” He had an incredible memory and vocabulary and a very quick mind, which he used to his advantage. Tools and mechanical objects fascinated the child. Alan was bold and liked to climb up high.
He could talk for hours on end and loved to play “Guess what?” Loud noises annoyed him. The child was lanky, strong, and the height of a six and a half year old. He had grown a lot over the previous four months and was complaining of his bones aching.
Alan’s mom had a good pregnancy, nursed him until he was 19 months, and did not introduce dairy into his diet until 10 months. He walked at 11 months and talked at 18 months. He developed a severe ear infection at ten months following a DPT immunization.
Alan had an incessant habit of grinding his teeth at night so loudly that he awakened his parents in the next room. His sleep was restless. He flailed his arms and legs and awakened “upside down”. The child also salivated constantly since birth. He habitually lapped his tongue, resulting in scabs below his lips. He picked his frequently and suffered from recurrent gas. When asked about itching, his mother confirmed that he did have periods of intense anal itching but was never tested for pinworms. Alan had warts on his left sole under the big toe that were starting to be painful. Alan also loved noodles, bread and butter, sweets, and salt, which he sometimes licked off his hand. His appetite was huge. He complained of being “hungry to death.”
Alan’s Rapid, Dramatic Turnaround With Homeopathy
We gave Alan one dose of Cina 200C. Cina (Worm-seed) is a well-known homeopathic remedy for children who are cross, contrary, and disobedient. These children can exhibit violence, malice, and cruelty. They are capricious and like to be rocked and carried. Those needing Cina are often afflicted with pinworms, causing anal itching. Children needing this medicine typically grind their teeth, have ravenous appetites (and sometimes large bellies) and may have seizures. Also common is boring their fingers into their noses and ears to relieve the itching. They desire sweets.
At his next appointment six and a half weeks later, the warts on the bottom of his foot were completely gone. Alan’s mother considered the disappearance of the warts “amazing in itself”. His teeth grinding was much reduced. His mother described now him as “your normal average kid.” There were no more slugging matches or temper tantrums. He was significantly less defiant. The heavy, deep breathing when he didn’t get his way had resolved. Not did he complain about having bad mommy. The salivation was much better and the nose picking improved by 80%. Alan had gone through a really hungry period for about one week after the remedy during which his appetite could not be satisfied. He was no longer fixated on violence. The child had stopped complaining of bone aching. He had no gas. The anal itching had happened only twice.
Two months later, when Alan’s mother brought him in, “He is doing terrific. As perfect as a boy can be.” The warts were still gone. The teeth grinding was slight. His attitude had improved considerably. He had occasional temper tantrums, but nothing compared to before. He was not as rebellious and defiant. There was no salivation. The nose picking was occasional. He had a much better relationship with his dog and the other farm animals. He no longer had problems with sensitivity to noise, even hearing the chain saw. His appetite was strong and he had begun to try a lot of new foods. He had no bone aching, though he did experience it briefly. There was no anal itching. He had gas and diarrhea every once in a while.
As of five and a half months later, Alan continued to do “great” and did not need a repetition of the Cina.
