The reason for this is that specific medical information about remedies is relatively useless and misleading if one bronchitis in children of early age not have a basic understanding of how homeopathic remedies are made, how they are selected for a particular patient, and how they work. So why a section specifically devoted to children’s remedies? Routine prescribing by disease name seldom results in a cure, and improvements in a patient’s condition tend to be short-lived.
So again the question: Why children’s remedies? There are at least another thirty remedies that are also deep-acting constitutional remedies in pediatric populations, but all are much less commonly employed that the ones listed here. In other words, children, especially younger children, are like a newly minted coin. Life has not had the time to tarnish them and, consequently, their symptom pictures tend to be clearer — more pure. A few words about what we mean by a “constitutional type” are in order here.
To find this constitutional remedy the physician not only records painful sensations, symptoms, pathology, and the like, but also how the patient looks and behaves when in health, how he responds, his temperment and disposition, strengths and weaknesses.

A history commonly told by a parent is that the child now being treated for asthma or chronic sinusitis had this type of eruption as an infant and that the respiratory symptoms came only after the rash was treated and disappeared. It is also common to give the remedy and then to find that the child develops skin disorders as the respiratory symptoms disappear. This response to the remedy should be viewed as positive and should not be interfered with.
