HP Later: When to Use Constitutional Homeopathy First

by Amber Currie, CCH RSHom(NA) C.HP

Chronic ear infections are one sign that indicates a need for constitutional work.

The HP supervisors of Free and Healthy Children love offering this field tested, gentle, and powerful program to the families in our communities. Our HP program is designed for children who are developing normally with strong immune systems. Unfortunately, not every child falls into that category.

For some kids it makes sense to do a few months of prep work in order to get the child’s (or adult’s) immune system into fighting shape before beginning HP. This will help them to get optimal results from the HP program.

“Constitutional” work is what homeopaths call the technique used for whole-person, immune-strengthening, body-balancing homeopathy. We recommend it for people who get sick frequently or have chronic health problems, which currently is at least 27%1 of children in the U.S.

Here are a few of the red flags I see in children who should have constitutional work before beginning HP:

  1. Colds, ear infections, strep throat or otherwise getting sick monthly or more
  2. Eczema
  3. Multiple food allergies or severe seasonal allergies
  4. Asthma
  5. Digestion problems that cause ongoing trouble
  6. Anxiety or depression
  7. ADD or ADHD
  8. A history of adverse vaccine reactions
  9. Autism
  10. Other diagnoses of chronic illness.

Why do homeopaths recommend constitutional work for these clients? So they can feel better and function better in their bodies and in their lives. Isn’t that what we all want for our kids? Why do we specifically recommend constitutional work before HP? So that the immune system can respond as well as possible to the HP program and generate the best possible results.
