Homeopathic Remedies for Colic In Babies

Colic in children is synonymous with acute distress to the child as well as alarm bells going off for the parents. Its causes may be ambiguous and its occurrence abrupt, but it is one condition that can throw life out of gear both for the child and the care giver.

Symptoms of colic in children:

Its most conspicuous sign is that the children in the throes of colic often cry uncontrollably. They may wake up abruptly and start wailing. They do not stop whining even on being comforted or cajoled. The affected children pull their knees into the chest and clench their fists hard enough to block the pain. Children describe the pain as a feeling of someone grasping the abdomen with the fingers. There are sensations of gripping and clutching that make the children bend forward so as to double themselves to prevent the pain. In other cases, children describe the pain as a sensation of something being stabbed into them. They try to avoid the pain by pressing hard against the abdomen.

The condition manifests itself through symptoms like abdomen getting distended with gas and being bloated. The colic-ridden children experience palpable relief after passing gas and emptying the bowels.

The colic can be due to indigestion, resulting in sour water coming back into the mouth. Another cause of colic could be nerve pains in the abdomen.

Homeopathic Medicine for Colic in Babies

Colocynthis: My experience with homeopathy bears testimony to its safety and success rate as a solution for colic and how! I have found homeopathy to be a holistic remedy as it covers colic of all types. In case of colic due to gas accumulation or undigested food, colocynthis works wonders. For patients who complain of colic after having fruits that were unripe, colocynthis provides relief from the pain. In case of colic caused due to summer dysentery, colocynthis is a sure-shot solution. Some mothers complain that their child suffers colic after a violent emotion, like a fit of anger. Colocynthis serves as an effective homoeopathic treatment in such cases.

Chamomilla: Another medicine that I have found to work well for children with colic is chamomilla. It cures the colic quite effectively. Chamomilla is recommended when the colic is abrupt in nature, starting and ending suddenly. Chamomilla is suitable in cases where the root of the condition usually lies in anger articulated by the child. Many times, mothers say that emotions like violent anger are followed by sudden colic complaints by the child.

Dioscorea: This is also a suitable homeopathic remedy for colic and abdominal pains, especially when the pain is in the umbilical region. The child bends backward to get some relief. The stretching of the body in the backward direction relieves the pain to some extent. Dioscorea is prescribed when the pain is of the continuous type and is present constantly.

    I attest to chamomile! Its does work in calming my son as does putting him in his Zipadee-Zip. I did much research as my son was having colic symptons for 5 months and I tried removing food from his diet like broccoli, onions and gassy foods. I had to take several measures to aid my son!

  11. Dear Doctor,

    My daughter is 4 months old and have a severe gastric (colic) problem. She passes lot of gas and everyday she faces the same problem – Immence Gastric. Doctor has precribed Collicade and Neopeptine drop for the same. When we use to give the same to her she feel good in next half an hour time and sleep calmly for 4-6 hours. Again she wake up when she undrgoes a similar pain. Doctor has adviced us not to continue with the medicine for more than 10-15 days.

    Now we are not giving her any drops. But she has to struggle alot everyday so that the gas passes away. Because of gas formation she use to push her body and struggles very badly.

    Please suggest some medicine that will put an end to such a pain that irritates her everyday.

    With Best Regards,
