Success Story of Rickets

What is Rickets?

If your child is not developing well or he faces difficulty in walking and sometimes may complain of leg pains, don’t ignore. It may be Rickets. In This article, we will explain what is Rickets, the cause of Rickets, signs of Rickets, and Homeopathic treatment of Rickets

What is rickets?

Rickets is known as the softening of the bones in infants and children, which makes them more vulnerable to fractures and deformities of the bones. The children who do not get an adequate amount of vitamin D, are at an increased risk of suffering from rickets. It is needed the proper absorption of calcium that helps in the formation of bones and their maintenance. Excessive diarrhea and vomiting also lead to a deficiency of calcium thus rendering the children with severe malnutrition which makes them more prone to develop rickets. We have in our clinics the cases of children who developed rickets even after vaccination.

Signs and Symptoms of Rickets

Signs and Symptoms of rickets:

  • Pain and tenderness in bones
  • Increased tendency to fractures
  • Weak muscles and uncontrolled muscle spasms
  • Dental problems
  • Musculoskeletal deformities like bowing of legs.
  • There may also be signs of respiratory distress

Conventional approach for treatment of Rickets

 Those who suffer from rickets are given calcium, phosphates, and vitamin D supplements and are also advised dietary intake of products rich in calcium. Exposure to ultraviolet light is another conventional treatment. However, many a time it is observed that the cause of Rickets is not the deficiency of supply of calcium or vitamin D but a problem in the absorption of calcium and vitamin D in the body. Hence the homeopathic treatment of Rickets helps the body to absorb whatever calcium and vitamin D is available from the food.

HomoeoCARE's Approach

We believe that the cause of rickets lies not only in the deficiency but also beyond that. Therefore, we take a detailed history of the patient and deal with the impaired metabolism and weakened immune system. Our approach lies in understanding your little one's sensitivity, his weaknesses, the environment in which he is growing, and his constitution. Even the mother’s history during pregnancy is taken into account before prescribing treatment for an infant. Homeopathic medicines for rickets bring back into form the disturbed homeostasis of a child’s body.

HomoeoCARE's Success

The cause of rickets goes beyond deficiency, otherwise how a healthy child suddenly suffers from rickets?

We in our clinic had a 1year 6months old child who came with chief complaint of wheezing in chest for the last 4 months. He got recurrent cough and colds every 1-2 weeks. He also complained of pain in legs. On going into depth of this child’s history we found that the child was completely healthy when born. But immediately after birth the child was vaccinated, which caused an immune impairment and the child complained of poor weight gain. The vaccines were still continued, and the child started suffering from gastric and respiratory complaints. When the child came to us, he complained of dislocation of elbows. This means that, even his musculoskeletal system was affected.

Although the patient was on calcium and vitamin D for 2 months yet radiology still revealed rickets and an increase height of growth plate. We investigated for cause of metabolic abnormality and the following was the report of tests.

  • Serum Inorganic Phosphorus … 4.8
  • Serum Calcium ………………………… 8.8
  • Serum Alkaline Phosphatase …… 1460

His Serum Alkaline Phosphatase (enzyme which is found in the  blood and released by the kidney, bones, liver, placenta and intestinal lining)  levels were remarkably increased .

Within one month of prescription of the right homoeopathic remedy, the x-ray turned out to be normal. Also, his blood serum levels were almost normal. This is what the father of homoeopathy Dr. Samuel Hahnemann calls rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health.

The following is the report of tests after our treatment.

  • Serum Inorganic Phosphorus ….. 5.6
  • Serum Calcium ……….………………… 9.4
  • Serum Alkaline Phosphatase …... 542

The patient’s general condition improved and the rickets disappeared. The gastric complaints of the patient also reduced and he suffered temporarily with mild attacks of respiratory tract infections, but not asthma. Gradually he was fully cured with homoeopathic medicines.

Another two-and-a-half year old child came to our clinic with complaint of rickets. He also had complaint of recurrent cough and cold, showing how weak his immune system was. As the child had developed a disgust for bitter medicines and there was no remarkable improvement in his general well being and immunity level, his parents decided to come to the HomoeoCARE.

When he came to us, the following was report of his tests.

  • Serum Inorganic Phosphorus -3.9
  • Serum Calcium                    -7.2
  • Serum Alkaline Phosphatase-1167

After he began treatment at HomoeoCARE, his reports showed a lot of improvement.

  • Serum Inorganic Phosphorus -5.0
  • Serum Calcium                   -9.2
  • Serum Alkaline Phosphatase -877

Not only this, his overall immunity improved and now he suffers from less number of attacks of cough, cold and diarrhea. His parents reported that after homoeopathic treatment, there was a remarkable improvement in his general health as his aggressive and destructive behavior became a thing of the past and he was behaving like any normal child.
