Poor Weight Gain - Treatment

According to a study conducted in Cuba, 84% children treated with homeopathy attained normal weight, whereas only 30% attained normal weight with placebo.

Studies and clinical trials have shown effective results of homeopathy treating children having food sensitivity and intolerance.

Various case studies estimated the benefits of homeopathy in correcting absorption disorders, thereby treating poor weight gain in children.

Conventional treatment Possible outcome Advantages of homeopathy
Supplements Overdose may interfere with food absorption No overdose and homeopathic tonics to enhance food absorption
Anti-helminthics (medicine for worms) Worm infestations might recur Homeopathic medicines help reduce and eliminate the tendency of having worms
Antibiotics for repeated infections Diarrhoea and loss of appetite may interfere with food absorption No side-effects; improves the immunity and decreases the tendency of infections
Counselling for behavioural problems It helps, but it is slow and tedious Calming medicines in homeopathy help calm the child emotionally without any side-effects

Slow weight gain may be an issue if: your newborn does not regain its birth weight within 10 to 14 days of birth. Your baby will gain less than an ounce per day until he or she is three months old.

Myths and Facts

  1. Children must eat wheat-based foods for healthy weight gain.
    If the child has wheat intolerance, it could be harmful. However, there are various other food substitutes to choose from, namely, soya, rice, multi-grains, etc.
  2. Eating bananas can help increase weight.
    While bananas are healthy, they only provide a few nutrients essential for growth. For healthy weight gain, it is essential to eat a balanced diet.
  3. If your child eats junk food, give them dry fruits for snacks to compensate for the essential nutrition.
    While junk food may taste good, its nutritional value is little to none, and it does more harm than good. Dry fruits are rich in healthy fats, minerals and calories. However, they aren’t a substitute for a healthy meal. It is important to follow healthy eating habits to have healthy weight.
  4. Fortified fruit juices and breakfast meals, such as corn flakes, are nutritious.
    Most breakfast foods and fruit juices provide high amounts of carbohydrates, and are rich in calories; it is best to avoid them.
