Homeopathy treats aggressive behavior in children and teens
The beauty of homeopathic treatment for aggression and anger is that the homeopath does not need to, nor is she looking to, diagnose or label your child to be able to successfully prescribe a homeopathic medicine.
Homeopathy treats each individual based on their unique symptoms, and the way they describe and express their thoughts, feelings and behavior. This holistic and individualized approach to treatment takes every aspect of the child and teen into consideration before the correct homeopathic remedy is given.
Natural, Gentle and Free of Side-Effects
Homeopathy is a natural, gentle and effective healing modality that is free of side-effects and toxicity, that may affect your child in a negative way. When the correct and individualized homeopathic remedy is given, it helps the body naturally recover, without the need for synthetic medications.
The homeopath may talk to the parent only (depending on the child’s age), both parent and child, or teen by him/herself. The first consultation with a homeopath takes anywhere from one hour to an hour and a half, in order to get all the detailed information necessary to make a prescription. Keep in mind that homeopathy may be used even if your child or teenager are already taking a conventional drug for his or her aggressive/angry behavior. Homeopathy is often helpful to reduce, or ween off conventional medications. This should always be done however, under the supervision of the prescribing physician and homeopath.
Expressions of Aggressive Behavior:

Paul 6 and Ryan 13 – Successful homeopathic treatment for aggressive behavior
Paul had been acting aggressive and violent since he was very young, starting with head banging, biting, and hitting. Now that he was in his first year of school he was being aggressively disruptive in the classroom with bullying behavior towards his classmates. He would frequently be pushing, hitting, teasing and bullying his classmates, as well as throwing, hiding and destroying their property. Paul did not show any remorse after he hurt someone; on the contrary, when confronted, he would act defiant and rude.
When it came to bed time and sleeping a whole different side of Paul became apparent. He was very afraid of the dark and did not want to sleep unless he had his night light on. He had a big fear of dogs, monsters and evil creatures, and would imagine these attacking him in the dark.
Paul was given the homeopathic remedy Belladonna, and after a period of a month and a half his aggressive behavior and fear of the dark had all but vanished. He was able to regain trust and friendships amongst the other children in his classroom. Being a bully is a lonely place for a little guy, the isolation that comes with it only adding to fuel the aggressive behavior. At home Paul was now a totally different boy, happy and well adjusted during the day, and free of the overwhelming fearful thoughts at bedtime.
Ryan was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 9 years old. He had not been taking any conventional medications for his diagnosis by the time his mother contacted me, but had been receiving regular sessions of cognitive behavioral therapy for the past couple of years.
Ryan has had frequent episodes of explosive outbursts of rage since age 9. They have become increasingly violent and threatening with age, and Ryan’s parents were at their wits end on what to do. They were finally considering conventional drug therapy for Ryan, but decided to try homeopathy and a natural course of treatment before going down the conventional path.
The homeopathic remedy Veratrum album was prescribed for Ryan. The choice of remedy was based on the aggressive and violent outbursts, as well as other symptoms related to Ryan’s state, including emotional and physical symptoms. The homeopath maps out every detail about the person they are prescribing for, such as; family and patients general health history, patients food likes and dislikes, amount of thirst, sleep pattern, dreams, reaction to heat and cold, and other questions you will not expect to be asked by your child’s pediatrician or family physician. Homeopaths has a toolbox of more than 2000 homeopathic remedies to choose from when making an individualized prescription in each and every case. The detailed information gathered helps pin-point the exact medicine that will give the body that healing boost it needs to restore health and balance.
I saw Ryan over a period of 15 months which included 6 follow-up appointments in addition to the very first consultation. He made steady progress during this whole time until he was finally free of the violent and aggressive outbursts after 12 months of treatment with a total of 8 doses of the homeopathic remedy selected specifically for Ryan. I continued to follow up with Ryan for another 3 months until all symptoms were cleared.
A professional homeopath should always be consulted in the treatment of chronic health issues. Finding the correct homeopathic medicine is a complex process and requires the knowledge of a trained classical homeopath. Choosing the correct potency and determining the frequency of dosing is also something that must be done under the supervision of a professional.
