Dr. Grace Bamon discusses worm infestation in children.

Abstract

The prevalence of worm infestation is more prevalent in children under the age of 13 years. Homoeopathy can correct episodes of worm infestation by the administration of a well indicated remedy or a constitutional medicine. Homoeopathic medicines help in the expulsion of worms from the body and better absorption of nutrients from the intestines in the days to follow.
