Homeopath Edel Bolger O’Hora
A Behavioural case helped by Phosphorus. SY is a 3 year old boy.
The main reason of visit
Mum says ‘He wakes up every morning early 7:30 am and sometimes at 6am. He also wakes in the middle of the night 3am and will be wide awake for 2 or three hours. He goes all over the bed in his sleep. I can’t sleep because he moves so much. Very often I will find him upside down in the morning when I walk in’.
‘He is like a wasp if he doesn’t sleep! He gets really thick. If kids come to play he will lash out. Literally strike the other child or even threaten to punch them’.
‘I have twin nieces. I spend a lot of time with my sister. He just torches them and scratches them for the least thing’.
‘He bit one child once I thought it would leave her with a scar it was so deep’.
‘He screams with frustration. I end up scolding him but he only shouts back.’
‘ When he is nice he is really nice. He is kind to little children younger than him and good with older children. But, with the twins he is vicious’.
‘When he is bad he is really bad. He walloped a young lad across the head one time. I was so embarrassed’.
What makes him worse?
‘Tiredness. When he gets up at 6am he is particularly bad’.
‘I was like that as a child but I like my sleep. I get really cranky if I am not sleeping properly’.
Anything else makes him worse?
‘He is shy really. I brought him out to a strange house for a party. He wouldn’t join in at all. Kept his distance and only came in at his own time’.
‘He is worse if somebody bumps in to him. He turns around and literally hits the child first’.
‘He never says anything to me. Never fights. But with other children will threaten them not to talk to them again if they don’t do what he wants he lashes out.’
What do the play school say?
They say, ‘He is hyper. He pushes over boys’.
‘My mother says he is a different child when I am not there. He is so good! But because he is unpredictable and he wakes at night or he is up early nobody will baby sit him’.
‘He likes to nap in the afternoon. By Thursday of a week I let him sleep because he is so cross otherwise’.

He has a sore upper lip that he sucks all the time.

Rubrics(The Essential Synthesis, Dr. Frederik Schroyens)
Recommendation: LM1 Phosphorous
Follow Up after 1 month
‘His aggression is gone. No lashing out/no tensing up clinching his fists’. ‘He is even sharing with the girls, no punching, hitting. He has not been punching me or his Dad either’.
‘My Mum says he is playing well with his cousin too. They are the same age and Mum minds them two days a week’.
‘I have gone back to work too. He has none of the screaming when I leave him. He greets my parents when he goes to them. Before he used to blank them and walk in the door!! As if they didn’t exist’.
‘Initially I thought there was no change in sleep pattern but then just last week he started to sleep through 3am and 4am. Now he sleeps from 7:30pm until 6:30 am. I don’t know myself and he is much more pleasant/easy in himself with people and me’.
‘My mother says he is so different, no whinning and he chats away to her too’.
Recommendation: LM2 Phosphorous
Follow Up 2 after three months
‘He continues to have really good behaviour, playing, sharing and good with other little kids’.
‘His sleep though is up and down. He is settled in the bed and sleeps soundly when asleep but he is awake early 5 am. Now he is happy in the morning and dressing himself. We are even in the process of giving up the soother’.
‘He has a constant running nose, it is clear mostly but can be green at times.
‘He has really smelly tonsils at the moment’.
‘His breathing is phlegmy, as if blocked in the nose and swolling catarrah’.
‘He can cough at night dry that sometimes wakes him.’
‘He is not clinging to me when I have to leave him in the creche or with my mother.’
‘I am toilet training him at the moment. Just the night time stuff. He is dry by day for a year but the pull ups are really wet at night’.
Recommendation: LM3 Phosphorus
Follow Up 3 after three months
‘SY has started playschool. He is getting on fine and I am getting no complaints about his behaviour. He is even holding his own with his twin cousins. I was away over night with my husband a few weeks ago. I left him with a sister in law. There was no fights or bad/violent behaviour!’.
Practitioner View: SY is doing well on the phosphorous. His health is in balance again.
