  • Opiate addicted baby at birth

    I am the foster parent of a 2 month old baby whose mother was a prescription iv user of opiates during her pregnancy. His original withdrawal was easy, but now we are noticing other issues. He seems to not be able to focus, does not make eye contact or track movement, although he does seem to see light, looks out the window and at the ceiling lights. While awake he has constant flailing movements, much more than normally seen with babies. Sometimes you get the feeling he is needing something, maybe memory of his addiction withdrawal? He is to be scheduled for an MRI in the next several weeks. Let's see what else can I tell you about him. He was a week early weighing 5 lbs 5 oz. He now weighs over 8 lbs. He eats well, although he seems to want a little every couple of hours and does not sleep for more than 2 to 3 hours at a time.
    I have posted here in the past with respect to my own children and other foster children and had great results. Let me know what else you need to know. I would like to know what homeopathic, Back flower remedies, or other I could use to help him be more comfortable.
    Thanks in advance,
    Machi

    You posted:"I would like to know what homeopathic, Back flower remedies, or other I could use "................................................. ................

    Not so easy..............................
    Please seek a trained classical homeopath for these symptoms,not wise to do self prescribing with these sort of complex predispositions.
    see directory of homeopaths;
    National Center for Homeopathy - Home Page
    History of the babies parents is an obvious important factor here.
    These "discussion forums" are for verry simplistic acute cases,not for what your dealing with,please get someone(classical Homeopath) to see this baby.....................

      Thanks for responding. I realize that seeing a homeopath would be ideal, but actually not very possbile where we live. In the past with other such issues I have gotten very useful suggestions here and had hoped I could again. I understand.
      thanks again,
      Machi

        I have quite some experience with addiction and withdrawal from opiates.
        Originally I am from Amsterdam, where i have helped many junkies kick the habit with homoeopathy - permanently.
        Also babies with addiction can be helped and with the same remedies as the parent.
        If you can find a homoeopath who has such experience in your neighbourhood, do so.
        If not, let me know and i am ready to help.
        Do not accept or reject anything before you have investigated it and that on its own merits.

          Thank you for responding. We live and a very rural area and are hours away from any homeopath, especially one that would have this kind of experience. I would appreaciate any information you could share. There have been some changes since I first posted. He is now 3 months old and really starting to change. He is making eye contact and now does seem to be able to see. As a matter of fact today he has an appointment with a pediatric eye doctor. The MRI still has not occured, delay due to his medical card. Let me know what more you need to know about him.
          Thank you again,
          Machi

            The delay for the MRI is not too bad - there is little to be gained from such scans other than a fat bill for the doctor or hospital.
            It might be good to consider that MRI uses RADIO WAVES like X-ray in a 600-fold increse over normal x-ray. That means you get in one scan about as much as in 60 years at one normal x-ray scan per year. MRI does not use X-ray itself, but magnetic waves, of which very little research has been done as to safety.
            Contrast liquid is injected to make the image clearer, but these are often radioactive.
            You will also have to sign a checklist for safety - a waiver if something DOES happen out of the ordinary.

            Further, i also like to conduct an anamnesis, but not necessarily on a public forum - patient doctor confidentiality gets compromised that way.

            Hence here is my email.

            let me hear from you.

              Can I just correct some untrue information included in the last post--- contrast media used in MRI scans are NOT radioactive-- only radiolucent.
              Also what on earth does---'RADIO WAVES like X-ray in a 600-fold increse over normal x-ray.' mean?
              You can't possibly compare radio waves with Xrays-- thats like comparing oranges with lemons-- 2 different things entirely.

              I don't think we should deter people from having imaging scans performed-- that is not the job of a professional Homeopath!

                MRI does not use X-ray itself, but magnetic or radio waves, of which very little research has been done as to safety.

                As you can see I already said they were not like X-ray.
                If you think such waves are ok, that's up to you.
                It is well-known that each cell has a positive nucleus and a negative plasma wave.
                I for one do not believe these magnetic waves do not have an effect on the balance of our cells and thus our body.
                As long as there is no definitive report saying they are absolutely safe, I find it is my duty and responsibility to warn people of possible dangers.
                Radiology is a branch of science that is still in the nappy stage, regardless the claims.
                Moreover, often radioactive dyes are used to enhance contrast - you consider that safe, or sane for that matter?
                If that is not professional in your eyes, that is also up to you.
                Please do not tell me how to conduct myself professionally - that is my responsibility.

                  Hi

                  Why do you think that Radiology which has been around since 1895 is in its nappy stage ?

                  Sorry but you did say'RADIO WAVES like X-ray in a 600-fold increse over normal x-ray.'

                  As I said radio active contrast media is never used in MRI imaging- only ones that are radiolucent.
                  Radioactive contrast media are only ever used in imaging by gamma cameras.

                  Sorry again but as a Homeopath I would never deter a patient from having imaging done if that is what they want-- I don't see it as my job at all- but it is completely up to you if that is what you feel comfortable with- I am not telling you what to do !

                  You write--'I for one do not believe these magnetic waves do not have an effect on the balance of our cells and thus our body.'
                  So what is all the fuss about ?

                    that they do have an effect, regardless what anyone says.
                    If you are confortable with it, go ahead.
                    I am not there to cater to the wishes of the patient other than to cure.
                    Hahnemann did not need these machines - why should anyone want to increase the bill for the patient if you can also do without?
