Our Journey of Healing Asthma, Eczema, Allergies with Homeopathy (Final)

It’s been quite a while since I updated you on our homeopathic journey to healing Tristan’s eczema, allergies, and asthma. You can find previous posts on this subject here. And I’m sorry to say that I don’t have a happy ending for you, at least regarding custom treatment. While we saw some minor improvements with Tristan’s health while following a customized treatment plant from Tristan’s homeopathic doctor, after nine months we just didn’t see the results we should have. And nine months of homeopathy was quite costly. Luckily, we have good additional insurance with my husband’s company and so while the visits were covered, the tinctures and granules were not. But I don’t regret having tried working with a homeopath. Yes, I’m sad it didn’t work like we hoped, but I can at least say we tried. Because I do believe the last few remaining answers are still out there waiting for us to discover.

Yet, a customized treatment plan, something unique and created just for his body, didn’t work enough. I find it quite ironic. But I guess these commercial products are mass produced for a reason, they provide great results to a large population of people, so they sell well. The only reason we stopped using them is that we got to a point where Tristan’s skin cleared up enough that the tinctures no longer helped him as much. I was hoping a customized homeopathic treatment would heal him of the rest of his issues, but it wasn’t the answer for us.  I have heard stories where great results were seen, so please don’t let our story lessen your faith in homeopathic doctors, who can do great things for many health conditions.

Here are the homeopathic blends for eczema that I’m aware of.  We’ve used two and found they worked really well.

Homeodel 43 – For dry eczema. We used this one and it worked great in combination with the next one. For wheeping eczema, you could try this one, #48.

Dr. Reckweg R23 – For acute, chronic, itchy eczema. Worked great with the tincture above.

We used the two tinctures above while also using this immune balancer (not a booster) and found the three worked VERY well together. Until we determined most of Tristan’s food sensitivities, this was our go-to plan and it provided some much needed relief. We started the three around the same time, so we weren’t sure which one was really helping the most. So, we tried stopping each of the homeopathic tinctures and the immune balancer in turn, but each time we removed one we saw the eczema come back either immediately or over a few day period. So, I really must say that in Tristan’s case, the three worked wonders together.

Recently we’ve learned that Tristan has pretty severe seasonal allergies that manifest themselves in typical fashion (itchy nose, watery eyes, etc.) and as eczema. So, we’ve been using Allergex, another commercially available tincture, but for allergies. It works really well for him to relieve his itchy nose and mildly for his eczema.  And it works GREAT for me. I use it religiously to survive allergy season. Honestly, I couldn’t do without it now. It’s amazing.

    Hi Jennifer,
    I stumbled across your blog today as my 5 year old boy, who has suffered with very bad eczema and has a peanut allergy, had a random break out of hives at lunch today with swollen lips. We of course do not have peanut products in our home so it was troubling. I read your posts about oral allergy syndrome and found them very interesting.
    I wanted to let you know that we have tried natural approaches this past year for his eczema. It was getting so bad that we couldn’t control it. A friend who suffers sent me a study in the spring advocating the use of Vitamin D3 for people who have eczema. We started this and then went to see a natural-path where she up his dose of D3. This has made his skin the best we have ever seen in the 5 years he has been here…. and summer is usually his worst time of the year!
    I am unsure if you have tried this, and I haven’t read through all of you posts to full understand how your son suffers, but it has worked for us and now I guess we will be off to figure out what triggered this latest reaction!
    Good luck and thanks for your site!
    Jen :)

    • Hi Jen – Thank you so much for your comment! You know, we have dabbled in vitamin D3, but never really saw results. Thankfully our son is much better, but we may consider D3 down the road. It’s a great idea and one that’s I often forget. I’m so happy to hear that it worked so well for your son. Thanks again! Jennifer

  3. Hi Jennifer. I totally empathize with you. I am the parent of a boy with super bad allergies and another with eczema. The only thing that works for my son’s eczema is completely avoiding his food triggers and keeping him cool. I feel so helpless when it flares and there is nothing I can do and I can’t figure out why. I have had great success with Melrose Essential Oil blend for my son’s eczema. That is my go to treatment! My heart goes out to you and Tristan! Good luck with Tristan’s healing, I will be waiting for the day you post that it hasn’t flared in months. :-)

    Hi we tried homeopathy last year for our 4 year old son who suffers with terrible widespread eczema. We were given a remedy of tub bov to begin with and later rhus tox (I think!) neither of which did anything dramatic. There seemed to be a brief period of relief – about a week – before the constant scratching started again. We were given a further two remedies to try but by then I had lost faith in it so never gave them. And quite honestly it never say well with me giving a child a ‘pill’ to take. Currently were trying Chinese medicine at a clinic in the UK that has come highly recommended. Early days yet to tell you how we’re getting on. But if it works his baby brother who also suffers in the same way will be getting treated too. Our never ending quest to find some relief for our babies continues. I remain hopeful though – hope is all we have.
