Childhood Obesity Why Homeopathy
Treatment approach at Dr Batra’s™:
Step 1: First Consultation – Our pediatricians will spend 30-45 minutes with you and your child to understand the exact cause of obesity. We also take into account your child’s medical history, genetics and lifestyle. Depending on all these factors, our doctors suggest customized homeopathic treatment that will help your child achieve normal weight for his/her age.
Step 2: Medical Diagnosis – Our doctors calculate the child's body mass index (BMI) and determine where it falls on the BMI-for-age growth chart. After evaluating certain causes that may cause obesity in children, our doctors may also suggest blood tests if they suspect any hormonal disorders. They will assess the child's lifestyle, temperament, behaviour, eating habits and any associated complaints that may arise due to childhood obesity.
Step 3: Personalized Treatment - Natural homeopathic medicines are suggested that will help your child achieve normal weight.
Benefits of homeopathy
- Treatment with medicines made from natural sources like plants and minerals
- Treatment customized for every child
- Homeopathic medicines increase the child’s metabolism, which is, otherwise, slow due to obesity
- There are specific medicines in homeopathy, like Phytolacca, which help in reducing body fat naturally.
Step 4: Advice on nutrition – Our doctors also consult you on right nutrition and exercise that you can provide your child, which will help us achieve better treatment results.
Remember that the goal for overweight/ obese children and teens is to reduce the rate of weight gain while allowing normal growth and development. Children and teens should not be placed on a weight reduction diet without the consultation of a healthcare provider. You can try following diet:
- Provide plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain products
- Include low-fat or non-fat milk or dairy products
- Choose lean meats, poultry, fish, lentils, and beans for protein
- Serve reasonably-sized portions
- Encourage children to drink lots of water
- Limit sugar-sweetened beverages
- Limit consumption of sugar and saturated fat.
