Raising my kids with Little Gems

Hi. My name is Erica, and I am a mom to 3 children. I also have been a homeopathic practitioner in Heidelberg, south of Johannesburg for the past 17 years. My eldest son is now 17, so you could say that my practice grew as my children grew. And so did my experience in how to treat children’s ailments effectively with homeopathy and herbs.


A few years ago, when my kids started entering their teenage years, I looked back fondly on how their ‘young child’ years were coming to an end. I realised that all 3 of my children did not once need to go to a conventional doctor, and never needed an antibiotic. My second son, who is now 15, was the only one to inherit my allergies to environmental allergins like dust, grass and pollen. And that was when he was 8 years old, so he essentially skipped the younger years of continual snotty noses and getting continually sick from all that mucous, like many kids today. I did not mean to endeavour never to go to a doctor or use conventional medicine. I wanted the best for my kids, so if that meant an antibiotic then I had nothing against that. However, they never ever got that sick that I felt the need for emergency. Their immunity grew naturally, and it meant their bodies were able to cope with just about anything that came their way.
Read more But I will admit, my kids did have some advantages. They had a mom that allowed them to get really dirty outside, to experiment with all types of foods, and never to be afraid of a fever. They also had a mom that gave little white homeopathic sugar balls for everything ! Homeopathy…. one of the most misunderstood forms of complementary medicine. It took me years to understand it myself, as it is one of the most difficult forms of medicine to get right for each individual patient. By the time my practice was really busy I decided that I needed a quick remedy that would cover most symptoms of ailments in kids. I experimented with different combinations of remedies for inflammation, as well for a sore throat. Patients responded with good results, and so I tweaked the combinations of remedies for common coughs, as well as tooth pain. What an absolute privilege to be able to get reviews of my remedy combinations from patients and of course, my own children. One day I got stung by a bee on my finger while at a kid’s party. Being really allergic, I waited for that immediate swelling of my hand, which usually would last 3 days. I dug in my handbag and found Infection Complex which I give for fever and the start of flu. I was astounded to see that my finger stopped swelling, and within 15 minutes there was no trace of a bee sting. There are many stories of enlightenment like this. A quick Bumps and Bruises dose from the bottle in my handbag did wonders for every fall, swollen lip and painful scrape. I could hardly believe how quickly it worked to take away pain and a crying toddler would calm down within minutes. What I am trying to say, is that Little Gems combinations have been tried and tested by my family as well as hundreds of patients over a period of 17 years. When I decided to eventually put the remedy combinations into kits and give it the name Little Gems, it was due to the fact that patients were asking for them from all over. Teachers wanted a Flu Kit in their classroom, moms living on isolated farms wanted them for their kids as they lived too far from the doctor, and kids with sore ears from getting water in their ears after a swimming lesson asked their mom to please buy Ear Drainage. I realised on looking back, how easy it can be to raise kids healthily with homeopathy. If I could do it, then anybody can. Children are exactly like a rough gem, resilient and stong, they can be lovingly polished to become the precious individual that they are. With a bit of love, and Little Gems!

    What is Homeopathy?

    Homeopathy is a safe alternative medicine that works very well for children. In the past 20 years, there has been a surge of interest in natural alternatives to conventional pharmaceutical medicine. Homeopathy can be considered as one of the safe alternatives, but is often used in conjunction with other modalities. Herbal medicine and vitamin therapy is often used together with homeopathy with excellent results.

    Homeopathy is the use of ultra-dilute substances from mineral, plant or animal kingdom, and is usually dispensed on sugar pillules or in water. Homeopathy started in 1796 in Germany by a medical doctor who discovered that if a certain substance could induce symptoms in healthy individuals, that same substance can cure those symptoms in a diluted form.

    Since then, modern homeopathy has many different methods of using these diluted substances, and the science has progressed and been clinically proven in practice. The chemicals in our bodies actually very often function with the same dilutions. The fine balance between hormones, enzymes and neurotransmitters is called homeostasis and seems to be one explanation how dilute substances in homeopathy work in our bodies.

    The ultimate effect of homeopathy is that at the cellular level, there is an improved cellular vitality, and eventually an improved physical and emotional state. I truly do believe that children who are treated with homeopathy and natural herbal medicines when they get sick, have a huge advantage in their health. These kids definitely don’t get sick as often, seldom succumb to on-going allergies, and they can get through any flu with far less symptoms and much quicker.

    How do I reverse a situation where my child already has a lowered immune system and often gets sick?

    Yes, it is possible to have a healthy child, even though their first months or years were a bit difficult. A natural birth and a breastfed baby does have a head-start, buts not the only reason why your child may struggle with immunity. There is no reason why your child can regain his/her health if they went through a rough time with lots of antibiotics or cortisones. Each child has different issues, so it’s definitely not ‘one option fits all’, but there are some common trends in children and I would like to share how we can get kids healthy again:
    1. The Microbiome and leaky gut
    The health of the gut is tied to our children’s overall health and wellness. Their immune function, their brain function, and even their temperament is linked to the quality of the microbiome. Up to 70% of lymphoid tissue is in the small intestine, a large mucosal surface where our food is absorbed. The normal flora in the intestine is called the microbiome, and consists of billions of healthy good bacteria. The microbiome, is like a beautiful special lawn that has to be lovingly tended, its integrity needs to be protected, especially before the age of 4 or 5. Often, high doses of pharmaceutical chemicals and antibiotics damage this fragile balance, and the immune system starts to cause numerous inflammatory reactions in the body. If your child has had to take more than 4 antibiotics within 1 year, especially in the first year of life, then healing this lining is the number 1 way to improve your child’s immunity. The best way to do this is with the avoidance of the offending food, as well as L-Glutamine and a good probiotic with more than 20 Billion units per dose. Little Gems Rescue kit contains SoreTummy and Nausea, which can also be considered for improved microbiome and a healther digestion
    2. Chronic bacteria which lives in tonsils or adenoids
    Children with ongoing mucous probably have some bacteria lingering in the lymph tissue and mucous membranes. This means they are sick, but not sick enough to have a fever or show symptoms. Unfortunately this low bacterial infection is often exacerbated by antibiotics, as the bacteria was not fully killed, and lingering bacteria starts to take hold again after a few weeks(this is especially the case in chronic ear infection). The only way to treat this tough bacteria is by flushing it out of the lymph and regaining healthy mucous membranes in the nose and sinuses. First step is to avoid antibiotics and only using natural herbal antibiotics. There are excellent herbs that can be as effective in gaining control of an infection. Second, a lymph drainage protocol for enlarged tonsils may work if the damage to the tonsils is not too severe yet. Thirdly, a natural nasal spray like Colloidal Silver Nasal spray will keep the sinuses healthy and prevent any bacteria from growing there. Little Gems Flu Kit 1 contains Infection complex and Sore Throat which both work as natural anti-inflammatories and can improve lymph drainage in the tonsils and adenoids.
    3. Allergin desensitization
    Children often get inflamed membranes of the throat, sinuses, and ear canals just from environmental allergins like dust, pollen and grass. Of course, this triggers the typical itchy and irritated mucous membranes, which leads to clear runny mucous and then bacteria or viruses can so easily start to cause the sinus or even bronchial infection again. Little Gems Flu Kit 2 contains Hayfever complex. This is an amazing remedy which will slowly desensitise the immune reaction to dust , pollen and grass. Also to be taken long term over a 3 month period.
    Little Gems Flu Kit 1 contains Runny and Snotty Nose for nasal congestion and a runny nose from allergies
