Application of Homoeopathy in Pregnancy and thereafter
Pregnancy is a physiological condition and not an illness. However, there are discomforts and imbalances, leading to inevitable complaints that may become distressing, affecting the mental and physical state of the mother’s health. They need immediate attention.
Homoeopathy is a holistic science and promotes the immunity of an individual. There are wonderful homeopathic medicines that can take care of moderate to severe ailments of pregnancy like morning sickness, Dyspepsia, constipation, urinary disturbances, etc. There are medicines for severe disorders like Hyperemesis gravidarum, sleeplessness, emotional distress, depression, etc., and they can be treated safely with homeopathy.
Homoeopathic medicines help to ensure the safe passage of fetuses, medicines like Caulophyllum truly help when the OS is rigid, and the second stage of delivery is delayed.
“The season of gestation is the time given to homoeopathic physician for sowing the good seed from which his patient may reap a rich harvest of improved health during all her subsequent life. The fact just mentioned, that the almost herculean labours of nature tend to develop and ultimate all the hitherto latent hereditary predispositions to disease, renders this period of gestation at once of the greatest value to the true physician and of the most serious importance to the patient.” Dr. Guernsey.
