Do you ever get the suspicious feeling that your child's behaviour is worse whenever there is a full moon?
If big emotions like anger and irritability, coupled with other symptoms such as nose picking, itchy bottoms and teeth grinding in sleep are intensified during the full moon its likely that your child has an excess of intestinal parasites.
The physical symptoms of parasites, aka worms, may be all or any of the following:
Gas & Bloating
Nausea & Vomiting
Loose stools, or mucous in the stools... you may even see the worms expelled in the stools
Nose picking (excessive)
On the mental/emotional level the child can be tired and grumpy and they can display temper tantrums that can include screaming, biting, kicking and a tendency to throw things and be quite bossy!
During the full moon these symptoms and behaviours are heightened due to the increased activity of the parasites, and their tendency to reproduce at this moon phase.
In homeopathy we use a remedy called Cina to keep parasites at bay by giving a daily dose of Cina for 3 days in a row around the full moon period. This protocol can also be used as a preventative strategy for every member of the household, including pets.
If your child has an ongoing problem with intestinal worms then a full consultation will be needed to address the underlying gut health to prevent frequent reoccurrences.
