  • over 2,000 different remedies

    Homeopathy uses over 2,000 different remedies which are chosen to suit a patient's characteristics, as well as to treat her symptoms.


    HOMEOPATHY DESCRIPTION

    Homeopathy is a non-toxic system of medicine used to treat illness and relieve discomfort of a wide variety of health conditions. It is practiced by health care providers including medical physicians, chiropractors, homeopathic physicians, midwives and many others throughout the world. Information on the use of several hundred remedies has been collected for nearly two hundred years by homeopathic practitioners. Research studies known as "provings" have documented clinical cases and recent scientific trials using these remedies.




    samuel hahnemann

    Samuel Hahnemann, a German doctor became disenchanted with the draconian methods of his peers, set out his theory of homeopathy in Organon of Rational Medicine, a book published in 1810.


    HOMEOPATHIC HISTORY

    The principle of "like cures like" can be found in the writings of the "father of medicine," Hippocrates, which date from the 5th century B.C. and has been echoed through the ages in folk cures, such as rubbing frostbite with snow (which of course, you should not do, by the way).

    A German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, rediscovered this principle in the late 18th century. Rejecting leeches, violent purges, and other severe medical practices of the day, he developed homeopathy, taking the name from the Greek homoios (same) and pathos (suffering). His starting point was the contemporary use of quinine to treat malaria, allegedly due to its bitter qualities. Using himself as a guinea pig, he took regular doses of quinine and developed malaria-like symptoms. He concluded that it was actually quinine's ability to cause a malaria-like reaction that made it effective against the disease. He then persuaded healthy people to test, or "prove", other substances, such as arsenic and belladonna, and began to use these "remedies" to treat illnesses whose symptoms resembled the effects the substance has produced.

    19th century remedy case

    A case containing the most important remedies would have been carried by 19th century practitioners at all times.


    Hahnemann's ideas quickly spread across Europe to Asia and the Americas. In the 1820s two American doctors expanded his theories: Dr. Constantine Hering developed the "laws of cure", which explain how disease is cured in homeopathy; Dr. James Tyler Kent introduced the concept of "constitutional types". The American Institute of Homeopathy was founded in 1844, but faced with the demand for "rational" modern medicine, homeopathy had almost disappeared in the U.S. by the 1930s, re-emerging only in the 1970s. Opposition persists in different states. In the U.K., however, its popularity perhaps boosted by royal patronage, the practice was included as part of the National Health Service when this was founded in 1948.





    KEY PRINCIPLES

    "Vitalism" - the idea that a "vital force" regulates the body - was an important theory in 17th century medicine. Symptoms of disease, such as fever or inflammation, were seen as signs that the vital force was fighting infection. Modern homeopaths still choose remedies according to the "law of similars" to stimulate the vital force.

    Patients are classified according to their particular constitutional type, and symptoms are grouped, with unusual ones considered more significant than common ones. Treatment is said to work according to the 3 basic laws of cure: that the symptoms move down from the top of the body, outward from the inside of the body, and from the most important organs to the least important, with long-standing complaints taking longer to disappear than those that developed more recently.

    Hahnemann observed that the more a remedy was diluted, the more specific the effect seemed to be. From this he derived the law of potentization.

    "Nosodes" were homeopathic remedies devised by Hahnemann to counteract "miasms", which he alleged were inherited weaknesses that blocked a patient's response to treatment. He made them from body secretions linked with what he saw as the fundamental illness (scabies, for example, was treated with nosodes made from the scabies sores). In modern practice nosodes are made from many body tissues.

    Isopathic treatment uses remedies made from the substances that cause the ailments for which they are given. An example is Mixed Pollen 6C, a hayfever remedy made by diluting a range of spring pollens.





    THE LAW OF SIMILARS & POTENTIZATION

    THE THEORY OF HOMEOPATHY

    The body is said to be integrated by a "vital force", which maintains it in a state of health. If this force is put under strain, illness can result. Symptoms of illness are seen by homeopaths as signs the body is using its natural powers of self-healing to fight back. Homeopathic treatment seeks to stimulate the self-healing process rather than to suppress symptoms.

    Two important ideas on which homeopathy is based are the Law of Similars and potentization. Simply explained, the Law of Similars states that since exposure to a substance can cause specific symptoms in a healthy person, that substance - when correctly prepared as a homeopathic remedy - can stimulate the body's curative powers to overcome similar symptoms during illness.

    An example: A person who chops an onion can develop watery eyes, a runny nose, sneezing, coughing, and throat irritation from exposure to the onion's active substances. The homeopathic remedy, Allium cepa, made of potentized red onion, can help the body overcome a cold or allergy attack in which the person has similar symptoms (water eyes, runny nose, sneezing, throat irritation, or coughing.) The actual symptoms of the illness were not caused by exposure to an onion, but the remedy made from the onion can help the body overcome them, because the symptoms are similar.


    THE LAW OF SIMILARS

    According to the law of similars, or "like cures like", patients symptoms are a reliable guide to the remedy needed to activate the self-healing power of their vital force. Hahnemann applied this principle to his homeopathic remedies; to stimulate the vital force to fight an illness, the remedies are derived from substances that induce symptoms similar to those of the illness. For instance, eyebright, an irritant herb, is used in a remedy to soothe sensitive eyes, while belladonna is used to treat scarlet fever, because the symptoms of belladonna poisoning are very similar to those of scarlet fever.



    Potentization is a process that involves a series of precise dilutions and succussions (a vigorous shaking action). A substance has to undergo this process to be useful as a homeopathic remedy. Potentization is very important, because the repeated process of dilution and succussion brings about an energentic change that gives the substance a deeper curative effect. Repeated dilution removes all chance of chemical toxicity, allowing homeopathic use of many substances that would otherwise not be safe to take as medicine.


    THE LAW OF POTENTIZATION

    Diluting doses repeatedly limits their potential to cause side effects and helps to avoid so-called "aggravations," although these are still experienced by some patients. Hahnemann observed that the more a substance was diluted, the more potent it seemed to become. Remedies might even contain nothing of the original substance.

    A remedy is "potentized" by diluting it on either the decimal scale (X) with a dilution factor of 1:10 or the centesimal scale (C) with a dilution factor of 1:100.




    remedies are made from plants, minerals, and animal extracts

    1. Remedies are made from plant, animal, and mineral extracts. First the material is chopped or ground roughly.
    The material is soaked is solution

    2. The material is soaked in a mix of 90 percent alcohol and 10 percent distilled water and left to stand for 2 to 4 weeks.
    the jar is sealed airtight

    3. The jar is sealed with an airtight lid and the mixture is shaken from time to time to dissolve the material.
    infused mixture is strained

    4. The infused mixture is strained into a dark glass bottle, after which it is known as the "mother tincture".
    tincture is diluted

    5. One drop of the tincture is diluted with 99 drops of alcohol, then shaken rapidly - a process called "succussion".
    drops are added to lactose tablets

    6. After repeated dilution and succussion to the required potency, a few drops are added to lactose tablets.
    jar is swirled gently

    7. The jar is then swirled gently to ensure that each tablet is properly impregnated with the potentized remedy.
    tablets are placed in bottles

    8. The homeopathic tablets are placed in an airtight bottle made of dark glass, and stored away from direct sunlight.


    MoonDragon's Alternative Health: Homeopathic Potencies

    The safety and non-toxicity of homeopathic remedies is reassuring; however, they still must be chosen carefully on the basis of specific information - and used correctly - or they may affect the symptoms only superficially, or have no effect at all. Homeopathic remedies are not selected simply to treat an isolated symptom or a named disease. To work correctly, the remedy must be chosen to match the way the individual's body system expresses its unique response to the current stress and illness. Even within the same diagnosis, different people's bodies will respond to different remedies.





    EVIDENCE & RESEARCH

    A scientific study in support of homeopathy was published in The Lancet in 1994. Dr. David Reilly of Glasgow University carried out three separate clinical trials using the double-blind principle (neither health care providers or patients knew which patients were receiving medication. These indicated that the homeopathic treatment was more successful than a placebo treatment in relieving hay fever and allergic asthma.

    An American study, also in 1994, at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, showed that zinc gluconate lozenges reduced the duration of colds by 42 percent, as well as greatly decreasing the frequency of symptoms. A 1991 survey in the British Medical Journal of 107 controlled trials concluded that the higher the methodological quality of the study, the more likely it was to be positive.

    A survey of 73 homeopathic health care providers in the U.K., published in 1989 in the Journal of the Royal College of General Practitioners, claimed a 35 percent success rate for treatment using homeopathic remedies.

    In 1988, French scientist Jacques Benveniste showed that extremely diluted substances still affect living cells in quite a different way than water. The findings are controversial; no other scientist has been able to repeat them.





    CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL OPINION

    Current scientific understanding cannot explain homeopathy. While accepting that minute quantities of a substance can affect physiological processes, many health care providers are skeptical of the efficacy of a substance that is so diluted that barely a molecule remains in the remedy. A 12C potency, for example, is said to be equivalent to a pinch of salt in the Atlantic Ocean.

    The popular but controversial theory of "watery memory", which needs further research, contends that even though molecules have been diluted away, they leave electromagnetic "footprints" in the solution, to which the body responds.

    A growing number of health care providers in the U.K., Europe, and India practice homeopathy. However, more research is required to substantiate claims by homeopaths and establish whether homeopathy can offer cures, especially in conditions where conventional medicine has none.





    initial consultation

    THE INITIAL CONSULTATION: A homeopathic practitioner might spend an hour or two asking questions to determine the patient's condition and the most appropriate remedy. In his diagnosis he will take into account factors such as food fads or unusual emotions that may accompany the illness.


    CONSULTING A PRACTITIONER

    Practitioners may be homeopaths who are not medically qualified or conventional health care providers who practice homeopathy. They may also be "classical" or "complex" homeopaths.

    The practitioner will ask about your medical history, diet, lifestyle, moods, likes, and dislikes. A classical homeopath will also identify your constitutional type (see below). Practitioners then draw up a "symptom picture" to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses.

    The practitioner will try to match your symptom picture with those cataloged in the homeopathic "repertories," which include 2,000 to 3,000 remedies, often stored on a computer database. The skill lies in prescribing the remedy that fits your individual type and condition. Advice about diet and lifestyle may also be given.

    You will be asked to report any reactions and changes in symptoms at your next visit, and your prescription may be altered or adjusted as necessary. With self-limiting illnesses, such as colds, practitioners say that improvement should occur after the first few doses of the correct remedy. Long-term conditions that have developed gradually require longer treatment. Once signs of improvement show, the remedy dose may be tapered off and eventually discontinued. An awareness of the symptoms and their process of resolution is important to this tapering off.





    CONSTITUTIONAL TYPES

    Practitioners believe that illness results from inner imbalance. The homeopath takes stock of all aspects of a person. To help do this, he classifies a patient as a constitutional type - some of the most common types are shown below. Different types are said to have certain physical, intellectual, and emotional traits. The practitioner considers appearance, symptoms, personality, and habits - such as dislikes, fears, food preferences and the way the weather, seasons, and times of day affect the patient. He is very interested in what makes the patient feel better or worse, and in unusual symptoms that seem unrelated to the illness. Each type is associated with a specific remedy, and they share the same name. Different remedies will be used to treat the same illness. Homeopaths prescribe some remedies for the ailment and some to support the person's constitutional type.

    Argent. Nit Type
    Arsen. Alb Type
    Calc. Carb Type
    Graphites Type
    Ignacia Type
    Argent. Nit. types may be quick tempered, pale-skinned extroverts likely to suffer from nervous problems. Arsen. Alb. types may be restless, ambitious perfectionists, well-groomed, anxious, and insecure. Calc. Carb. types may be quiet, cautious, obsessive, and often overweight. They tend to suffer from joint pain. Graphites types can be indecisive and mentally lazy. They are heavily built and inclined to skin complaints. Ignacia types are usually dark-haired women. Artistic and idealistic, they may be prone to emotional problems.
    Lycopodium Type
    Merc. Sol Type
    Natrum Mur Type
    Phos. Type
    Pulsatilla Type
    Lycopodium types are often high achievers, but insecure. Intolerant of illness, they are prone to digestive problems. Merc. Sol. types may be easily offended, quick-tempered introverts, prone to respiratory problems. Natrum Mur. types may be serious, sensitive to criticism, introspective, and given to headaches and moodiness. Phos. types may be fun-loving and kind but do not cope well under pressure. They can be nervous and fidgety. Pulsatilla types, usually women, may be affectionate and gentle. They cry easily and are prone to colds and PMS.
    Sepia Type
    Silica Type
    Nux Vomica Type
    Sulfur Type
    Lachesis Type
    Sepia types may be elegant, irritable extroverts. They tire quickly and tend to feel burdened by responsibility. Silica types work hard but lack confidence. Likely to be thin and pale, they may succumb easily to colds. Nux Vomica types may be high-strung and impatient. Very competitive, they can become ill from overwork. Sulfur types are often very imaginative, intellectual, and messy. They are susceptible to dry, scaly skin. Lachesis types may be creative but volatile, with behavioral or emotional problems and bad circulation.





    CLASSICAL & COMPLEX HOMEOPATHY

    There are differences between the complex and classical schools of homeopathy, although many practitioners use both systems, and practices may vary from one country to another.

    Classical homeopaths prefer to find a single remedy that matches the patient's constitutional type and symptom picture, and will treat with single doses of that one remedy. This approach depends on identifying the similimum - the match - which may not happen on the first visit. Two or three remedies may be tried before the right one is found.

    British homeopath, Richard Hughes, extended what is known as "complex" homeopathy in the late 19th century. Hughes looked for organic causes of ailments to guide his prescription. instead of "temperament." Today, his followers still seek to treat sick organs, such as the liver or kidneys, rather than the constitutional type. Complex homeopaths tend to use low-potency remedies, often incorporating herbal extracts.

    Hughes' method became popular in continental Europe, especially in France and Germany, where it is still widely practiced. In the U.K. and Australia, homeopaths are more likely to use the classical system.

    ASTHMA - A PATIENT'S EXPERIENCE

    When Yvonne's daughter Claire was 4, she developed a constant cough and was diagnosed as asthmatic: "The practitioner prescribed various conventional medicines to be taken 3 to 4 times a day, and was considering a nebulizer. I balked at all the medication, but my husband wanted medical supervision for Claire, so we tried homeopathy. The homeopath didn't stop the medication, but taught me to recognize and homeopathically treat an oncoming asthma attack. Claire's constitutional type was Natrum Sulf. It wasn't instant magic, but she gradually improved. Now, 4 years later, she hasn't used albuterol for the last six months."

    THE WAY HOMEOPATHY WORKS

    Within the limitations of available scientific funding, interesting research is being undertaken to understand the how and why such highly-diluted remedies have such a profound and curative effect. Formal studies published in recent medical journals are showing that homeopathic remedies, when used correctly, are significantly more effective than placebo. Researchers theorize that, during potentization, an energetic change occurs in the remedy substance and its medium of dilution (usually water), enabling them to stimulate a person's system to deal with stress and illness more efficiently. Homeopathic remedies do not have chemical action in the body, and thus work differently than nutrients or drugs, which has made it difficult for some researchers accustomed to assessing drugs to adequately consider the remedies. Since the body is clearly affected by many forces that have no chemical content (electricity, radiations, thermal energy, etc.), it is reasonable to think that research designed to observe non-chemical effects will yield more useful information.

    HOMEOPATHIC PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE

    Homeopathic remedies can be helpful in complex or serious conditions. However, self-prescribing is not recommended in these cases. To correctly select the appropriate remedy and monitoring of the healing process, an experienced homeopathic practitioner should be involved for the following reasons:
    • Medical knowledge is needed to assess complex or serious conditions. Professional diagnostic tests may be necessary.

    • Using a remedy that covers isolated symptoms superficially, but does not fit the person on deeper levels, may change or suppress the symptoms, yet not be deeply curative.

    • Even with a correctly chosen remedy, a temporary aggravation of symptoms may occur as part of the healing process. Training and experience are required to distinguish a helpful aggravation from an intensification of symptoms that occurs because a remedy has not acted and the illness is progressing.

    • An inexperienced or impatient individual might be tempted to repeat the remedy unnecessarily, or change to other remedies at times when waiting is appropriate.

    If an illness or condition is chronic or deep-seated, it is best to consult an experienced homeopathic practitioner, for a "constitutional" remedy that fits the characteristic symptoms of the disorder and considers the person's physical condition and individual nature in a more comprehensive way. At a typical first visit, a homeopath interviews a patient/client for at least an hour, taking a careful history and obtain information about many aspects of the person's state of health, before choosing a remedy.

    USING HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

    Self-care with homeopathy for moderate, short-term illnesses or injuries can be satisfying. A correctly-chosen remedy can work gently and efficiently to relieve discomfort and help the body heal itself without toxicity or side effects. If an illness or condition is chronic or serious, it is best to consult with an experienced practitioner for a remedy that more deeply suits the individual's needs.

    Observe the person, taking special note of the strongest and most unusual symptoms, as well as the way the individual responds to the stress of illness, such as things that relieve or aggravate the symptoms (motion, temperature, light noise) or the person's emotional and mental state.

    Choose the remedy whose description most closely resembles the symptoms the person is expressing. When a remedy's pattern of action is similar to the person's response to the stress or illness, it can help the natural defenses more efficiently overcome the problems and return the person to a better state of health.

    Take one dose of the selected remedy, then wait for a response to show. If relief of important symptoms is noted - or if the person starts to improve in general - the remedy is acting. Continue to wait and let it do its work. Do not give another dose unless improvement stops. Unnecessary repetitions of a dose can interfere with or slow down a remedy's action.

    Further doses of the remedy should be given according to how the person is responding, not on a pre-set schedule. Intense or painful situations may require more frequent repetitions. An instance of this may be, in severe discomfort, as with a burn or throbbing headache, a dose may be needed every few minutes to an hour. In moderate conditions, such as the flu or indigestion, a dose once every few hours may be indicated. In many situations, one dose of a correctly chosen remedy will be enough to stimulate the body to heal itself.

    If no response is evident after a reasonable amount of waiting, give another dose and wait again. If no response is seen after several repetitions, review the important symptoms and choose another closely indicated remedy.

    Lower potencies (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, 30C) are the most appropriate for non-professional self-care situations. A 30 will often act more quickly and deeply than a 6 and need fewer repetitions - but, the higher the potency, the more precise the remedy choice must be to bring results. High potencies (past 30C) should be used only by those with homeopathic training, as a more developed knowledge of the remedies is needed to make an accurate choice of remedy and to monitor results.





    SELF-HELP

    Basic, low-potency homeopathic remedies are available on the internet from health-companies, at health food stores, some pharmacies, and even supermarkets for conditions such as coughs, colds, heartburn, nausea, and stress. These tablets, tinctures, and creams either contain a single remedy to be taken for various conditions, or combine ingredients in the hope that there will be something to suit everyone. For the use of any over-the-counter remedies, reputable manufacturers provide full instructions, which should be followed closely and supplemented with information from a good reference book.


    BASIC HOME REMEDY KIT

    A good homeopathic first-aid kit should contain about 10 remedies, including ointments, tinctures, and tablets. Some remedies that are considered good for non-emergency conditions are described below. Long-standing complaints, such as arthritis and eczema, are best treated with remedies prescribed individually by a qualified homeopath.
    Arnica Flower Heads


    Arnica 6C, made from the herb Arnica Montana, is taken for shock, usually in the form of tablets. The tincture and ointment are used for bruises and to reduce swelling.

    Aconite Leaf


    Aconite 6C, derived from the highly poisonous herb Aconitum Napellus, is used homeopathically as an analgesic and sedative. It is given for symptoms that come on suddenly, including fevers, colds, flu, or for initial post-trauma shock, panic attacks, or emotional stress.

    Charcoal


    Carbo Veg. 6C originates in the charcoal made from silver birch, beech, or popular trees. It is commonly given for digestive disorders such as gas, bloating, indigestion, and heartburn, or for headaches associated with overeating.

    Apis - Honey Bees


    Apis 6C is made from whole bees, including the stinger. It is used for inflammation that is accompanied by a burning, stinging pain, and for cystitis, hives, bites, and stings.

    Hypericum


    Hypericum 6C, from the herb St. John's Wort (Hypericum Perforatum), is taken in the form of tablets for nerve pain. The cream or tincture is applied to grazes, painful wounds, or neuralgia, and the tablets are used for backache.


    TAKING THE REMEDIES

    The practitioner may dispense a remedy himself or tell you what to buy from a health food store or pharmacy. The higher the remedy's dilution factor, the more diluted it is - and the more potent, according to homeopathic theory. Remedies should be taken apart from food and without strong flavors in the mouth; take no food or drink 10 to 15 minutes before or after the dose. The practitioner might advise you to avoid strong-tasting substances such as candies, tobacco, toothpaste, spicy food, and in some cases coffee, camphor, peppermint, alcohol, and menthol, which are believed by some to counteract the effect of remedies. He may also warn against the essential oils used in aromatherapy and herbal medicines.

    Remedy Forms

    Remedies are made in the form of lactose tablets, pills, powder, granules, or liquids.
    Dose Taking

    Patients should not touch the remedies with their hands or fingers. The correct dose should be taken in a clean, dry teaspoon and allowed to dissolve slowly in the mouth.


    COMMON QUESTIONS

    How long will treatment last?
    The first consultation may last 1 to 2 hours, although subsequent visits are usually shorter.

    How many sessions will I need?
    Short-term conditions, such as colds, may improve after only one dose. Some long-term conditions, however, may require many months' treatment.

    Will it taste unpleasant?
    Most remedies taste mildly of sugar.

    Will there be any aftereffects?
    Symptoms may briefly worsen after treatment. Homeopaths claim that since the body is healed from the inside out, deep-seated conditions may be temporarily replaced by more superficial ones. For example, as asthma improves, eczema may flare up in its place.

    PRECAUTIONS

  • Check unexplained symptoms with a health care provider if you are consulting a homeopath who is not medically qualified.
  • Tell your practitioner if you are using essential oils; in certain cases they are thought to be incompatible with homeopathic remedies.
  • Ask for lactose-free homeopathic tablets or liquids if you are allergic to milk-based products.





  • HOMEOPATHY & PREGNANCY


    Homeopathic medicines will have no side effects on you or your baby. You can use the medicines without any fear under the supervision of your homeopathic health care provider or midwife. The following homeopathic remedies are administered for some of the common symptoms of pregnancy described below.

    Homeopaths joke that pregnancy is an excellent time to receive homeopathic care since two people (the mother and the baby) get a remedy for the price of one! But jokes aside, homeopathic treatment means the mother is more resilient and the child gets a healthier start. Having your constitutional case taken by a homeopath generally requires a two hour visit and/or filling out a detailed questionnaire aimed at finding a remedy which covers your entire state.

    HOMEOPATHY VS DRUGS DURING PREGNANCY

    The conventional medical profession has diverted the once joyous process of pregnancy and giving birth into a panicked, stressful medical emergency. Due to the high number of lawsuits resulting from medical negligence, health care practitioners are now over-prescribing. Great for the practitioners, but this new attitude has now brought to light increasing concern over the use of drugs and other medical interventions during pregnancy which the fetus receives too; so, it is better to be in the best of health so as not to need these drugs or interventions in the first place. Research has shown that drugs during labor and delivery can have short, as well as long-term effects on infants. (Korte and Scaer,1984.) Homeopathy before and during pregnancy can help to ensure a drug-free pregnancy and labor.

    PREGNANCY RELATED AILMENTS & HOMEOPATHY
    Some areas where homeopathy can aid during childbirth and after delivery include:

    BLOCKED NOSE (DUE TO COLD)

  • Remedy: Pulsatilla - Nose and sinuses are blocked up at night especially in a stuffy room. Feels better in the morning (when it becomes runny) and much better in the fresh and open air.

  • Remedy: Kali Bich - Blocked-up nose and sinuses. Dropping from the posterior nares. Mucus is sticky in the morning. Difficulty in breathing due to dryness.




  • CRAMPS

  • Remedy: Calc Carb - General sluggishness. Cramps in the legs or foot at night while sleeping or waking in the morning.

  • Remedy: Mag Phos - Cramps anywhere in the body that are better for heat and firm pressure. General restlessness and insomnia.




  • EMOTIONAL EXCITEMENT LEADING TO BODY AILMENTS

  • Remedy: Aconite - Restlessness and anxious with vivid dreams. Great fear about your labor.

  • Remedy: Sepia - Worn out from doing too much family work. Feeling "saggy" or heavy, tired, irritable and depressed. Wakes at 3 am, sleepless and lie there with miserable thoughts.




  • EMOTIONAL STRESS

  • Remedy: Kali Phos - Nervous exhaustion from overwork, mental strain, worry or over-excitement makes it difficult to fall asleep.

  • Remedy: Gelsemium - Anxiety and fear, difficult to sleep. Your body aches and feels very heavy.



  • GENERAL ACHES & PAIN

  • Remedy: Arnica - Pain in the back and limbs. Feeling sore and bruised from over-exertion. Everything that she sleeps on feels hard.

  • Remedy: Rhus Tox - General restlessness. Stiffness of joints. Aching in the legs even while resting. You just can't get comfortable in bed and toss and turn all night.

    HEARTBURN

  • Remedy: Merc-sol. - Heartburn with burning pains, hiccups and burping which are worse at night.



  • MORNING SICKNESS & VOMITING REMEDIES

    Nausea during pregnancy can be miserable, to say the least. It can be discouraging to have to adapt to one more thing during this time, as if you do not have enough to deal with while pregnant. Some women experience a slight nausea or only feel ill or queasy in the morning, but for some women it lasts all day and is even troublesome at night. Discomfort usually eases off by the third or fourth month, but this is not always the case. Homeopathic remedies can be very helpful to a woman with morning sickness and are safe to take during pregnancy.

    Use either a 12C or 30C potency (strength, or potency recommended or available) of the indicated remedy a few times per day, as needed. If a few doses bring no relief, try a different remedy.

    MoonDragon's Pregnancy Information: Morning Sickness & Homeopathy

  • Remedy: Symphoricarpus Racemosa - Nausea. Highly recommended for vomiting in pregnancy. There is marked aversion to all kind of food. Aggravation motion. Feels better lying on the back. Fickle appetite.

  • Remedy: Robinia - Marked acidity. Acrid erructations. Nausea with sour vomiting.

  • MORNING SICKNESS & HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES

    There is no need to suffer from morning sickness thanks to homeopathy. The most common remedies for this are Sepia and Colchicum. See their descriptions in the list below along with the other morning sickness remedies. Keep in mind that you may not have all the symptoms that go with a particular remedy; just take the one that matches the best or comes the closest. Use a 30C potency, take one dose (1-5 pellets) and wait. The right remedy should have some effect within half an hour. If so, put the remedy in water and stir vigorously before each additional sip, which you should take only if there is a relapse or a failure to make progress on the single dose:
    • Anacardium: Nausea is relieved by eating.
    • Antimonium Crud: Tongue thickly coated white. Better lying down, better warm baths, worse from being looked at.
    • Cocculus: Worse from motion, such as riding in a car; chilly, worse from open air; worse from loss of sleep; excessive salivation and much thirst for cold drinks.

    Morning Sickness is by definition not a disease. It should be treated only when the symptoms are severe. Apart from the homeopathic medicines, there are certain other factors that should be considered. It has been found that Morning Sickness has a direct relation with the female psychology too. It has been found that women who have a job or who have to conceal their pregnancy, often do not suffer from Morning Sickness. It has been seen that in working woman, morning sickness is worse on weekends. Physically strong and well-nourished females often have less problem.

    As general measure to limit the severity of Morning Sickness, it is suggested that the pregnant woman should get up from the bed only after munching a cracker, piece of dry toast or a biscuit or two. A high calorie diet and sweets are also known to reduce Morning Sickness. Hunger can also induce like symptoms in pregnancy, so long periods without food should be avoided.

  • BREECH BIRTH & HOMEOPATHY

    The most common and preferred position for the birth of a baby is head first. A breech position is when the baby is positioned in the womb to be born feet or buttocks first. A breech birth is frequently delivered by caesarean. Before 36 weeks it is sometimes possible to turn the baby into the preferred position (Locke,1991). Pulsatilla and Natrum Muriaticum are two remedies that can help turn the baby around in the womb.
      Pulsatilla is a common remedy for this. A treatment of giving multiple doses of Pulsatilla 30C once a day (no more than 6 doses) or a 200C only once will often turn the baby. The woman, if needing Pulsatilla, may also show evidence of the common Pulsatilla mentals - desire for sympathy and company and a craving for fresh air; also, a tendency toward weeping and crying openly. The remedy Pulsatilla stimulates the muscles of the womb (Schmukler, 2003).

      Natrum Muriaticum has also been indicated as a good remedy to move the fetus out of the breech position and is best indicated when the mother is feeling like she wants to be alone and is worse for company. They are emotional, but want to cry alone. The Natrum Muriaticum picture is the opposite of Pulsatilla in terms of temperment (Schmukler, 2003). Although having indicated these remedies, the best medicine is usually the one indicated by your local homeopath. These are based on the uniqueness of each womanís symptoms and should always be the preferred treatment. Periods without food should be avoided.



    MANAGING LABOR WITH HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES

    During labor a women can be treated acutely. Acute prescribing is also of benefit to the baby, such as a dose of Arnica 200C after the birth for both mother and baby which will ease the trauma and bruising endured during the labor.

  • Early Labor: Early labor is when contractions may come and go and the labor is not fully established. Pulsatilla 200C may help labor start properly.


  • Established Labor: The First part of labor usually can last anywhere from 12 hours in a first pregnancy to 6 hours for a second pregnancy, but no hard and fast rules apply. Uniquely, a woman can be in the first stage for as little time as a few minutes or as long as 36 hours or more. Homeopathic remedies at this stage can be used to help any natural hold-ups ensuring the process progresses naturally without the use of allopathic drugs. One remedy is Caulophyllum. This is given to induce labor or used once when the progress is definitely underway as it strengthens contractions. Symptoms that indicate Caulophyllum include an excitability, restlessness and nervousness, a woman who trembles internally from weaknesses, is chilly and better for warmth. She will have erratic pains flying about from place to place, a lack of tone of the uterus and labor pains that are irregular. The woman may experience stiffness in smaller joints like the fingers. The mother to be will be exhausted and fretful and will desire company but will not be talkative. Spasmodic and severe pains which fly in all directions. Labor pains that are weak and irregular. (Murphy, 2000).


  • Second Stage of Labor: The second stage of labor usually lasts an hour or so in first pregnancies and about half an hour the second pregnancy. This stage of contractions become stronger and women may experience excessive pain.
    • Chamomilla will help with painful contractions. The woman will be irritable, cross and abusive; she will demand things and then push them away. She will say things like, "I cannot take this anymore!" This is the picture of the women that is ready to kill the partner for her pregnancy. The pain maybe felt as a numbness feeling with the labor pains pushing upwards. A Chamomilla person is thirsty and may have one cheek red and the other pale.

      The Belladonna pain is described as hot and throbbing with labor pains bearing downwards. Belladonna people are thirstless with both cheeks red. A Belladonna person may be delirious and might hit and bite.

      Sepia is also worth considering when we are talking about unbearable labor pain. Sepiaís pain is described as dull and extends down into the thighs with a bearing down pain and the body will be flushed with heat. She will be chilly and want to be covered. Sepia will be irritated by company but does not want to be alone. She will be worse from consolation, depressed with weeping episodes and then turn and be sarcastic. A Sepia woman will be aggravated by the thoughts or odor of food.

      Other remedies for pain include Coffea, Aconite, Nux Vomica, Ignatia, Arsenicum, Kali Carbonicum, and Pulsatilla. A dose of Arnica prior to the birthing and immediately afterwards can prevent many delivery problems. The patient needing Arnica will feel bruised but will say she is "okay" and have a fear of being touched.

  • Third Stage of Labor: Once the baby is born, the third stage proceeds and a dose of Aconite to the mother and the baby will help if fear is predominant. This can also be given for the next few days if needed. The final stage takes another 30 minutes or sometimes longer and is marked by an increase in bleeding as the placenta is delivered. Nursing the baby helps detachment of the placenta naturally.



  • RETAINED PLACENTA & HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES

    Commonly these days in the maternity hospitals an allopathic drug Syntometrine (derived from Secale also used as a homeopathic remedy) is given. But the use of the natural remedies to aid contraction of the womb and expulsion of the placenta might prevent the need of allopathic drugs. To assist the body in expelling the placenta, Pulsatilla, Cantharis and Sepia should be considered.
      The Pulsatilla person craves fresh air and wants windows opened. She is gentle and yielding and better for sympathy; dry mouth but without thirst.

      The Cantharis patient has painful, burning urination. She will have a constant desire to urinate but will only pass minute amounts. She will be anxious, restless and angry.

      The Sepia patient will have the sensation that the uterus is falling outĖa bearing-down sensation. She wants to be covered, will want to be alone but afraid to be alone. If the placenta has not detached after an hour it will have to be removed by hand and this is done under a general anaesthetic.



    POSTPARTUM HEMORRHAGE & HOMEPATHIC REMEDIES

    Massaging or pulling on the umbilical cord after the birth of the child can cause stress on the detachment process and can result in partial separation of the placenta which can result in post-partem hemorrhage. Cinchona (also known as China) is a good remedy for any loss of fluid/blood and can help to sustain the body. Some other significant remedies that can help with post-partum hemorrhaging are:
      Belladonna for flushed cheeks with the neck arteries throbbing, dilated pupils, bright red blood with clots which stops and starts suddenly. She will have a bearing-down feeling and think that her insides are going to fall out. Noise and light will irritate.

      The look of fear that she is going to die signals the need for Aconite. She will be restless and have bright red blood that spurts out. Her face will be hot and dry. Aconite also has a great thirst.

      Chamomilla is for a very uncivil and angry woman. She will describe the pain as unbearable and she is very sensitive to pain. She will have cold hands and feet. The hemorrhaging will be dark.

      Ipecacuanha will be chilly and have a pale face with cold sweat. The blood will be bright red and the woman will feel nauseous. The pain will be from the umbilicus to the uterus.

      Pains running from the back through to the front signal a need for Sabina. The blood is bright red and gushing but the consistency will be thin with dark clots. Sabina is worse from warmth.

      The red face of Belladonna is likened to Ferrum Metallicum but unlike Belladonna, Ferrum Metallicum cannot bare the slightest noise and is worse at midnight. The blood will be dark and coagulated. She will have cold hands and feet. (Schmukler, 2003)



    ASPHYXIA OF THE NEWBORN & HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE

    When the baby is delivered, the lungs need to convert from inhaling fluid to inhaling air and babies that fail to breath are commonly premature, overdue or babies whose mothers had certain pain-killing medications during the labor. Commonly meconium or mucous can obstruct the airways. Human intervention of gentle suction to the nose, mouth and throat can extract meconium or mucous. This can help along with the following remedies:
      Antimonium Tartaricum is the first remedy to consider. The baby will have a rattling sound and be pale. The lungs are filled with thick mucus.

      Camphora can be used if Antimonium Tartaricum has failed. Use Camphora for meconium in the lungs. The baby is freezing cold, blue and limp. The pulse is small and weak.

      Opium is indicated for coma or asphyxia especially after fright, the baby is unresponsive. The mother may have been frightened.

      Carbo Veg is for when the baby is limp, near death, blue and needs oxygen to restore the bodyís vital force.

      Arnica is to be used when there has been a traumatic birth resulting in any head bruising or trauma. There is a weakness in reflexes.

      The Lauroceraus baby will be cold, blue but gasping for breath with a failing pulse.



    PERINEAL TEARS, EPISIOTOMY & HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES

    Perineal massage for the duration of the pregnancy and kegel exercises can minimise the need for episiotomies. In the event of a tear, cloth-wrapped ice packs soaked with a solution of Calendula in the first 24 hours will prevent infection and promote healing. Other remedies to speed healing are: Arnica, Staphisagria, and Hypericum. Take Arnica if the mother feels bruised and worse from touch. She will feel that the bed or chair is too hard.
      Arnica will help control bleeding, swelling and prevent infections.

      Staphisagria might be well suited when an episiotomy has been performed. The clean, razor cut wounds suits the action of Staphisagria and taking this remedy will speed healing and tissue restoration.

      Hypericum is best for when there is a lot of pain that radiates from the tear or cut.

    POST DELIVERY CONSIDERATIONS

    The weeks and even months after the birth of a baby the body initiates its own healing. Symptoms like after pains in the uterus during breast feeding are all part of the body returning to its natural state. Many women feel a bit down after the pregnancy due to the re-balancing of hormones, blood sugar levels and the general tiredness of their new duties.



    POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION & HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES

    Postpartum depression effects one is every ten women and homeopathy can help a mother to cope while things are settling down into a routine. Postpartum depression is expressed by weeping, feeling hopeless, inadequate and anxious about the new pressure of motherhood. She may not be able to sleep and might have little interest in daily activities. It is important to match the motherís symptoms to a remedy; consider: Sepia, Natrum Muriaticum, Pulsatilla, and Platina.
      Sepia suits depression due to hormonal imbalances. The Sepia mother may reject the baby, may not want to nurse. For one thing, she is exhausted. The Sepia woman is chilly and worse in cold air. She is emotional and unable to express her deep feelings. For the Sepia person, physical exercise and dancing will make her feel better. She may seem joyless, tearful, critical and even grumpy and snappish. She will want to be alone and is worse from consolation. Sepia craves chocolate, lemons, pickles and cold drinks.

      Natrum Muriaticum is emotional, introverted and solitary. She will seem remorseful rather than depressed. She will weep when alone and feel worse from heat and sunlight. She has trouble communicating feelings and will not ask for help. She craves salt.

      Pulsatilla weeps easily in company. Pulsatilla evokes sympathy and is gentle with changeable moods. She will crave fresh air and does not like a stuffy warm room. Pulsatilla has no thirst.

      Plantina is aloof and contemptuous. She will feel alone in the world. She will have the sensation of constrictions or bandages. Plantina is better in fresh air. She wants the best of everything, feels that she is royal. May have an aversion to meat.

    Just getting more sleep and having time away from the baby can help in mild post natal depression. It is important that women not feel isolated and are able to talk and having a non-judgemental listener can help.


    PROFESSIONAL HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT

    A couple thinking about conceiving should consider seeing a homeopath as part of a pre-conception plan. The improved health of both parties at the time of conception can ensure your child a healthier and happier life. Consulting a professional homeopath is a must if you are planning to use homeopathic remedies during pregnancy and childbirth. Chances are you will not, at the time of labor, have the presence of mind or the knowledge to properly prescribe for yourself or the baby when the remedies are needed most. A Professional homeopath is an objective person who will take your whole case and will ensure good health for you and your whole family for years to come.

  • BIOCHEMIC TISSUE SALTS OVERVIEW

    Biochemics was developed in the 1870s by a German homeopathic physician, Dr. Wilhelm Schussler. He named 12 tissue salts as being vital for health, and described exactly what each one of them did in the body. He also listed the ailments he claimed could be cured by using tissue salts as medicines in tablet form.

    The 12 tissue salts are also listed in the homeopathic range of medicines and are prepared in the same way - but the two therapies are quite different. While biochemics makes good the mineral deficiency believed to be causing the disease, the homeopathic philosophy of "like cures like" prescribes remedies to induce the symptoms of the disease in a healthy person, and is also concerned with the patient's emotional and mental levels.

    Biochemics claims to help alleviate many everyday aches and pains and the tissue salts can be used to treat simple, easily recognized symptoms that are usually self-healing over time. Tissue salts are available from health stores and some chemists and are prepared in highly diluted doses - usually 6X or a higher dilution dosage (6C). Homeopathic potencies are designated by the combination of a number and a letter (for example, 6X or 30C). The number refers to the number of dilutions the tincture has undergone within a series to prepare that remedy. The letter refers to the proportions used in each dilution of the series (the Roman numeral X means 10, and the Roman numeral C means 100), as well as the number of successions the vial of solution undergoes in each successive stage. For a 6X dosage, this means that one part of the active ingredient is mixed with nine parts lactose and the process repeated a further six times. For more information see Homeopathic Potencies.

    Each salt is known by a number and abbreviated name (combination remedies are also available, known by a letter). The salts are small tablets that simply dissolve in the mouth, making them suitable for children or people who have trouble swallowing tablets. For acute symptoms, take the remedy every half and hour. For chronic symptoms, take them every two hours. The tablets are absorbed quickly into the bloodstream and give rapid relief from sudden, short-term conditions such as colds and flu. Long-standing ailments take longer - up to several months.

    Tissue salts will not mask any symptoms that they cannot treat; instead they will persist - an indication that further advice and treatment is necessary.

  • HOMEOPATHY & PREGNANCY


    Homeopathic medicines will have no side effects on you or your baby. You can use the medicines without any fear under the supervision of your homeopathic health care provider or midwife. The following homeopathic remedies are administered for some of the common symptoms of pregnancy described below.



    MORNING SICKNESS REMEDIES & PRODUCTS

    Nausea during pregnancy can be miserable, to say the least. It can be discouraging to have to adapt to one more thing during this time, as if you do not have enough to deal with while pregnant. Some women experience a slight nausea or only feel ill or queasy in the morning, but for some women it lasts all day and is even troublesome at night. Discomfort usually eases off by the third or fourth month, but this is not always the case. Homeopathic remedies can be very helpful to a woman with morning sickness and are safe to take during pregnancy.

    Use either a 12C or 30C potency (strength, or potency recommended or available) of the indicated remedy a few times per day, as needed. If a few doses bring no relief, try a different remedy.

  • KREOSOTUM:

    DESCRIPTION

    Kreosotum - When this remedy is indicated, the woman may salivate so much that she constantly swallows it, becoming nauseous. She may also vomit up food that looks undigested, several hours after eating. Kreosotum, or creosote, is made from distilled beechwood tar. It has been used for centuries as a wood preservative and was first used for medical purposes in the 1800s. It is currently used to treat a wide range of conditions, such as bed-wetting, bleeding between menstrual cycles, ailments affecting the mucus membranes, and nausea due to pregnancy. To make a solution of kreosotum, creosote is typically dissolved in alcohol and distilled water. Next, it is strained through a filter until the liquid is extracted, making a mother tincture. One drop of the mother tincture can be diluted further in a mixture of alcohol and distilled water. This new, diluted mixture is then vigorously shaken. It can be diluted further, if necessary, or added to tablets, granules, or powder, and stored. People who practice homeopathic medicine claim that kreosotum works best on certain types of patients. For example, they claim that people who are consistently in a temperamental state are ideal for the drug. It is also believed to work well on people who are forgetful, restless at night, and irritable. Other characteristics that are common among patients who use kreosotum include a penchant to live in the past and experience repeated dreams that are sexual in nature. It is often used to treat candidiasis as well. Candidiasis is a fungal infection that usually affects the vagina. Kreosotum is usually recommended for people who have an offensive, foul-smelling discharge coming from the vaginal area. The odor is usually accompanied with soreness and burning, especially when urinating. It can also be used to treat discharge and bleeding from the cervix and uterus. Some homeopathic medicine practitioners recommend kreosotum if a woman has bleeding on the days between her menstrual cycles. It is sometimes recommended for women who have heavy menstrual cycles or an odiferous flow that is accompanied by a burning sensation. There are also claims that it can be used to treat nausea due to pregnancy. Bed-wetting, or nocturnal enuresis, is a common problem, especially in young children. By the time many children are three years old, they have the ability to control their bladders. Many children still have problems controlling their bladder at night, however, even when they are six or seven years old. Kreosotum is often recommended to help a child who wets the bed when in a deep sleep. Usually a practitioner will recommend the child ingests the mixture before bed for two weeks in the hopes of having a dry bed in the morning. Although side effects are rare, most people should consult a professional before using kreosotum. A professional opinion is especially important for children, women who are pregnant, and women who are breastfeeding. If any concerns arise, it is best to stop using the drug.

  • MORNING SICKNESS - VOMITING OF PREGNANCY PRODUCTS:

    DESCRIPTION

    For morning or anytime nausea strikes, vomiting, irritability, diarrhea and indigestion. Whether it comes in the morning or anytime you see food, this remedy may be your answer to a safe well nourished pregnancy. The little known remedy called Cerium, has a very singular purpose in homeopathy - vomiting of half digested food especially during pregnancy. Ipecac helps nausea that wants to vomit but cannot, or nausea that remains after vomiting. Nux vomica is here for the pregnancy plagued by almost constant nausea. Its nausea is worse in the morning, after eating or with tobacco, which may or may not cause vomiting. Sepia helps many pregnancy symptoms including nausea with a gnawing pain relieved only temporarily by eating and aggravated by morning, milk and pork. Tabacum's violent sour nausea and vomiting feel better in fresh air (though that may worsen dizziness), and worse for morning, travel or fasting. Miranda Castro's pregnancy book, lists all these ingredients (except Cerium) as safe for morning sickness, and Cerium is referred to in several Materia Medica. Though homeopathy is very safe, drugs are drugs, so please seek professional advice during pregnancy.

    Homeopathic Ingredients: Cerium oxalicum, Ipecac, Nux vomica, Sepia, Tabacum
