Homeopathic remedies work with your body’s own natural process to heal you gently and naturally. One of the most natural experiences a woman will go through in her life is pregnancy. It is an amazing, beautiful process that often times comes with different side effects caused by the physical and emotional changes your body endures in such a short amount of time. Coping with these new conditions can be difficult. There is a long list of over the counter medications that women cannot use during their pregnancy, leaving them with very few options to treat their symptoms. What some women may not know is that there are natural alternatives that can help soothe many of their illnesses. Morning sickness, headaches, muscle cramps, heartburn, varicose veins and fatigue can all be treated using natural homeopathic remedies that work with your body to alleviate symptoms, without any harm to you or your baby. Benefits to using homeopathy while pregnant include an increase in energy, boost to your immune system, no side effects, and complete safety. They can also help strengthen the woman both physically and psychologically, while keeping the baby safe. The homeopathic medicines used to treat pregnant women vary depending on the severity of the symptoms, the most common used are Sepia, Colchicum, Ipecac, Silicea and Pulsatilla. Homeopathy is often used during labor and childbirth as well. Women can experience a variety of different emotional and physical symptoms including a labor that has come on too quickly causing extreme pain, soreness during and after the birth, weak muscle tone in the uterus, poor circulation, nervousness, exhaustion, moodiness, and irritability. During the labor and childbirth stage of the pregnancy, you want to be feeling strong and confident so that you and the baby can have a safe delivery. Putting stress on you and your body can cause the baby to also feel stressed. Post childbirth, Arnica can help to speed up healing time for any bruising that was caused, Hypericum for nerve damage, Rsenicum to aid the bladder and Pulsatilla for breastfeeding. Since everything you will be feeling is a natural part of the child birthing process, homeopathic medicines may be the answer for you. Western medicine used during labor and childbirth isn’t always the best option, what may work for someone else may not work for you. At Homeopathy For Better Health we will work with you to identify your ailments and come up with an appropriate treatment plan that is tailored to you, your body and your baby.
