I just didn’t seem to crack this case. Baby Finn’s fevers wouldn’t respond to anything and get him into hospital time after time. That is.. until I figured out steroids were the culprit of both Finn’s condition and momma Nancy’s excruciating periods. A homeopathic detox cured them within weeks.
Nancy was at her wits end with her 1 year old. Falling pregnant with Finn was not easy at all and once she had him she didn’t care one bit about the sleepless nights. However, when he started to develop frequent uncontrollable fevers alongside teething, she started to get concerned.
Pretty much all children will respond beautifully to Chamomilla during teething, or Belladonna in general during fevers. Not Finn. We could repeat all we liked, but it always ended with suppressing the fever with paracetamol when the digits entered into the red zone. Many times, even the paracetamol did nothing and Nancy a her husband Todd would end up in the emergency with their boy.

Finn would get very sour smelling nappies, bladder issues, difficult teething, and reactive arthritis in his leg. Time and time he got snotty noses, infected eyes, and rashes. Remedies managed his symptoms, but even deeper constitutional remedies and remedies addressing hereditary issues did not stop his auto-immune condition.
I was desperate to help this baby that was getting antibiotics time after time and spent hours of studying his case. The worst bit for me as a homeopath was that Nancy was suffering with severe menstrual pains that she took prescription painkillers for, and she didn’t seem to respond to remedies as I expected either.

- seems to block the effect of homeopathic remedies,
- interferes with hormone balance in fertility cases, and
- because they suppress the immune system, they tend to compromise immunity after use too.
Because simple steroid detox though, has solved many of my fertility & auto-immune cases, after several months of treatment, I asked Nancy for what I thought was the hundreth time… “are you sure he has never had any steroids?“.
To my surprise Nancy this time answered: “Actually…. I remember now that I had a steroid injection during labour“. It seemed as though all puzzle pieces finally fell together. I prescribed both Nancy and Finn a steroid detox course of 8 weeks and we finally had a break through.

Finn started improving straight away. Within a week his nappies improved and his snotty nose went. He even slept better. Ever since completing the detox, Finn responds immediately to homeopathic remedies and he is able to bring his occasional fevers down himself.
And Nancy? She is off her painkillers and for the first time in years has normal periods.
“I am so pleased that I met Ingefleur. She is incredibly knowledgable and passionate about homeopathy, and has a wonderful caring nature making all interactions with her so genuine and supportive. I cannot recommend her and her professional health advice and vitality treatment enough! She has persevered with not only my health case but my sons to ensure we both see the positive affects of homeopathic treatment for ourselves. Ingefleur was an integral part of my health journey and recovery following the birth of my son. My son suffered with severe reflux and feeding issues due to prematurity however with Ingefleur’s professional advice and support we were able to travel abroad to enjoy a holiday and friends wedding when he was just 3 months old. After both not responding as well as hoped to many remedies indicated for our health concerns Ingefleur recommended we try a new approach. So most recently we have both embarked on a cortisone steroid ‘detox’ which has had incredible results for us both, aiding my son to heal naturally and seemingly eliminate his recurrent ear infections and unexplained feverish illnesses. I have battled with very painful and traumatic menstrual cycles all my life, and finally I have been able to menstruate without experiencing such traumatic symptoms each month. We are now responding to remedies that previously had little effect. If you are considering a homeopathic approach to your health then Ingefleur will without a doubt be able to support you in improving your health, like she has for us.”
