Homeopathic treatment for jealousy can reinforce the child’s self-esteem, but cannot eliminate the cause.
Jealousy appears when the child believes that he is not receiving the same amount of affection, attention, toys etc. as his sibling or friend. Children can react very negatively when they have feelings of jealousy.
3 Homeopathic remedies
Lachesis mutus 30C
The child who is affected by Lachesis mutus always wants to be at the centre of everything and needs constant attention. This child is egocentric, possessive, extremely jealous and envious, provocative and confrontational.
He is envious of everyone and everything. This child is affectionate, always asks questions and needs to explain everything.
This jealousy can make family life impossible. Lachesis mutus children are jealous and envious, malicious and have a tendency to bite, blame their mothers, criticise, and even become violent and injure younger siblings.
Nux vomica 30C
The Nux vomica child is overcome with jealousy because he is unable to accept that anyone is better than him. He is a sore loser, and will always assume that anyone who does things better than him has been given an unfair advantage.
He will feel jealousy and become aggressive and violent and will sometimes lash out physically.
The Nux vomica child is ambitious and seeks success in every field – school or sports. This child struggles to admit his mistakes or accept failure.
The Pulsatilla child is very affectionate and sensitive. Their jealousy stems from feelings of abandonment and fear of being left alone in this world or orphaned.
Pulsatilla is the typical jealousy that occurs when the child is aware of the impending arrival of a sibling.
The Pulsatilla child hates the “thing” that is growing in his mother’s stomach. They may become so jealous that they hit their pregnant mother’s stomach.
Pulsatilla jealousy is not violent like Lachesis jealousy; it is a more mournful type of jealousy. He feels like he has been cast aside because mummy pays more attention to the sibling.
When the sibling is born, the Pulsatilla child may display regressive behaviours and behave like a baby – sometimes even wetting the bed.
The Pulsatilla child who was always happy and affectionate becomes bad-tempered, cries over trivialities and reacts in an negative manner.
