Every child is unique which means there ought to be millions of different remedies, one for each child. Fortunately, it’s possible to classify people into types.

I have found, as a parent, that knowing my children’s constitution has helped me understand how they react to the world around them and by using their specific remedy it has helped lessen the intensity and duration of illness for them.

Knowing a child’s constitution can show you what stresses are most likey to cause illness. Avoiding these stresses are will help keep the child healthy. For example, one of my childen became ill under the pressure of exams. Giving the constitutional remedy reduced the feelings of pressure and anxiety about exams.
Knowing a constitution will also help you know the parts of the body that are weakest. These areas can be protected, again helping the child to stave off illnesses. Skin issues are an example of this. Paying attention to diet and hygiene can relieve susceptibility in the skin.
Knowing the constitution will help parents understand their child’s reaction to their parenting style, disciplining and communication in general. This better understanding will enhance your relationship with your child and create a more relaxed atmosphere in the home. For example, my three children have different characters.
