Childbirth is a normal and natural process that many believe has been corrupted by traditional medicine practices. These practices mandate delivery of children in a sterile hospital environment in which there are high rates of infection, cesarean section and medical intervention. Alternative medicine practitioners are now turning to homeopathy medicine for childbirth to help alleviate pain as well as encourage a safe birth.
Homeopathy is the practice of disease treatment that involves the administration or application of minute dosages of naturally occurring substances to provide a healthier balance of internal chemistry. The interesting aspect of homeopathy is that the administration of these chemical substances in a healthy person will also produce the symptoms of the disease.
Often times homeopathic remedies are mistaken for chemicals that are safe and don’t cause interactions or are dangerous to the people who use them. This however, is not the case. Homeopathic remedies aren’t used for just one symptom but rather are prescribed by practitioners based on the overall symptoms, causes and the entire picture presented in the body.
The premise behind the use of homeopathic remedies is that like cures like. In other words when a person has symptoms a homeopathic practitioner would evaluate the entire presentation of symptoms and research what remedy would cause the symptoms. By taking this remedy in minute amounts homeopaths have found that a cure can be effected.
However, it is dangerous to prescribe these remedies for yourself. Because they are naturally found doesnt mean that they are safe. It would be like prescribe blood pressure medication without a full understanding of how they work and how they interact with other medical problems that might be present.
Homeopathic practitioners find that use of homeopathy medicine for childbirth has distinct advantages for the woman and child. Each pregnancy, labor and delivery are different and thus lend themselves to the application of remedies that must exactly fit the physical, emotional and mental state of the woman in labor and delivering her child.
There are usually medical alternatives for the homeopathic remedies prescribed but there may be a lower side effect profile for one or the other. For instance, physicians may prescribe pitocin to help strengthen contractions while a homeopathic practitioner may use Caulophyllum. Using either without adequate knowledge of the medication can cause damage to the mother and the baby.
There are several places to purchase homeopathic remedies online but without knowledge of the medications and their interactions with your medical issues, medications or pregnancy you can do significant damage to mother or baby. Just because the product is sold doesn’t mean that the product is safe. There are many products sold both in the store and online that aren’t regulated or approved by any governmental agency.
Homeopathy medicine for childbirth is an option that may help mother and baby have a safe and natural birth experience but only when the remedies are prescribed by practitioners who are knowledgeable about the products, their uses and interactions.
During both the conception process and throughout pregnancy it is important that hopeful moms maintain their physical well-being and as well as their psychological health.
This broad field of women’s health includes psychological issues surrounding mood, stress and relaxation, as well as physical areas such as infertility, nutrition, morning sickness, labor and delivery and more.
