Dear Jake55 I would suggest you take your daughter to see a medical homeopath. You can search for a practitioner in your area here - http://www.britishhomeopathic.org/getting_treatment/find_practitioner/

I am a qualified doctor in Canada. Since your GP prescribed these 2 pharmaceutical medications, I would assume a thorough examination was completed initially. Stemming from birth, these symptoms could well be due to some developmental defect, however this and all other possible diagnoses should have been considered during the doctor's investigations. Do you have a report of her/his findings for your personal files that you can make available here?
Excluding any negative findings on the part of your doctor, I would suggest homeopathic Mercurius solubilis 30c 3x/day giving 2 pills dissolved in her mouth at each dose. If this dose is difficult then put the pills in a 1/2 cup of water for 5 minutes then allow her to drink from it. Even merely a sip will suffice and allow no food or other drink for 10 minutes before and after the dose. As well, be certain at the outset that the medicine vial is not opened in the presence of chemical odours such as perfume, cologne, scented soaps and other personal products, air freshener, etc. Please forum an update after 3 days on this medicine.

I have added two comments which have been removed. Why this censorship?
Basically the above homeopathic advice is bad and is diverting the parent of this sick child from avenues of proper medical care. This is irresponsible. Shame on the moderators of this forum - nothing I said was rude or offensive - just scientifically valid (unlike homeopathy).

Actually what you say is offensive to users of homeopathy hence your comments were deleted.

I can understand my comments would not be welcome to those who practice homeopathy, but I do not think it likely that those who "use" it - i.e. are fooled into taking homeopathic preparations as an alternative to real medicine would be offended - rather that they might welcome some sensible advice instead of irresponsible advice as given above in this thread. Again - shame on you!

I'm not sure how advising someone to see a GMC registered doctor who practices homeopathy when they have asked for help with their daughters condition is irresponsible. The BHA always advise people to see their GP in the first instance and usually people only seek alternatives when conventional medicine has failed.
I really don't think this is the forum for you. This is the British Homeopathic Association forum for people who want to find out more about homeopathy and have found the therapy works for them. This isn't really a forum for people who don't see any value in homeopathy at all and are sceptical. All you seem to want to do is insult homeopathy - I suggest you join one of the many skeptic websites out there.

Ipeacock - it is bad advice for the simple reason that the advice diverts the patient from proper medical care. Even if the homeopath is medically qualified, any time wasted on homeopathic treatment is time wasted when it should be better spent pursuing medical treatments based on science, and not on a treatment invented well before evidence based medicine, clearly discredited on scientific and clinical trials, and thoroughly investigated by the government's science and technology select committee who found it to be no more than placebo.
I have no wish to insult, but to inform those who are mislead and who may need protection from so-called "alternative" treatments, which offer no real benefits.
This is touted as a discussion forum. Freedom of speech seems to be denied by your censorship of things you regard as critical.
This whole area of so-called medical treatment is an affront to science and the scientific method. As a properly trained scientist of decades of scientific research experience, I can assure you that belief in homeopathy is akin to belief in any religion. It is faith based and not science based. Yes, I am skeptical. Scientists are professional skeptics and spend their time trying to disprove their own current understandings, in order to come to better ones. Current understandings give no credence to the claims of homeopaths.
Do you not understand that the advice given by the Canadian above refers to a preparation which started out as an extremely toxic preparation of a soluble mercury compound? If any of that material were left in the preparation, anyone applying it might be liable to criminal prosecution. Of course at the extreme dilutions involved, there is fortunately no material of any physiological significance in the preparation - thank goodness. So it is neither toxic nor can it be in any way, beneficial - just a waste of time and money.
Skeptical websites do not reach the people who need to know - which is why I and other rational people come here.
