Homeopathy and Head lice

I most likely have written a blog about head lice before so see this as an updated post with more knowledge and information than before.

It been many years since I have had to deal with head lice on my son but recently we had a bout of head lice that would not go, the egg got stuck to the hair and the head had to be shaved.

Like anything a full symptomatic approach had to be taken as like anything head lice dont just appear and they don't go for just anyone. I was reminded of this that even head lice need full body treatment. The body has to be at a lower vibration or already not functioning at it best self to attract something like head lice.

Which made me start to think with my homeopathic brain and energetic brain and the links between emotions and attracting head lice, there is often a feeling of jealously, feeling hurt for sensitive. It about not having boundaries in place within ourselves that we let other attack.

The following remedies may help to prevent and get rid of head lice ofcourse it is recommend to also treat the hair including nite combs, treatments (natural ) and if needed shave the head and start fresh.

Pediculus 200c: when your child is infected or if outbreaks are prevalent. This remedy is a homoeopathic nosode made from the louse. Also be used for prevention

Psorinum 30c: weekly, this is a key support remedy to reduce susceptibility.

Staphysagria 30c: daily as needed. This remedy improves boundaries and reduces sensitivity, physically and emotionally.

Other remedies to consider

Apis suits busy, curious, fidgety children who can be jealous and easily angered.

Lachesis suits jealous children who are very talkative, strong minded and intense. The scalp can be very sensitive and they hate having a haircut.

Lycopodium if confidence is low and the child is easily overwhelmed by expectations. Sulphur is good for warm-blooded children who hate having a bath and washing their hair. They love junk food and are quite lazy and messy.

Other thing you can do ?

lavender oil, Tea tree oil, Rosemary oil in a spray bottle and spray into hair before school or daily.

If it continue a constitutional remedy may be needed.
