This course will focus on rubrics and remedies used historically by homeopathic doctors for the treatment of the symptoms related to worms, teething (dentition), and measles. This will be an introduction to remedies for these common pediatric conditions. Each condition will be covered over two weeks. The remedies discussed will be described by their keynote symptoms, as well as their characteristic symptoms regarding the applicable condition.
While studying each condition, both polycrest remedies and ‘smaller’ remedies will be discussed. This is done in order to study well-known remedies in a new light, as well as bring lesser-known remedies into focus. Rubrics which are extremely important for finding the correct remedy will be emphasized for each remedy.

Lessons 5 & 6: Measles
With recent measles outbreaks in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, it is becoming apparent that homeopathy may need to be called upon more frequently, as it had been in the past, to treat this infectious disease, as well as other conditions like whooping cough and mumps. These two weeks will be dedicated to covering 14 of the 95 remedies historically used by homeopaths to treat measles. There are adjunct therapies (Vitamin A, anti-viral herbs, hydrotherapy) that can help support the treatment of measles, but the correct homeopathic remedy can bring about a quick resolution of the condition, as well as prevent complications, which could lead to hospitalization. The essential rubrics and indications for each remedy will be outlined in this course.
