Homeopathic Medicine and Fertility

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

Homeopathic medicine was first discovered by a German medical doctor (Samuel Hahnemann) in the years around 1800.It grew rapidly in popularity because it was effective, safe and gentle. In North America there have been more than 100 homeopathic hospitals, many medical schools and even homeopathic mental institutions. It has been the medicine of choice of the royal family for over 3 generations as well as celebrities and historic figures (Gandhi, Shaw) Today Homeopathy ranks as perhaps the fastest growing complementary treatment in the world. Studies do indicate that the results obtained with treatment are not due to placebo.1

The centerpiece of homeopathic medicine is the ‘law of similars’.The idea that a substance can cure in the sick the kind of experiences it can create in the healthy (observers who take part in experiments).What this means to the patient is that Homeopathy is uniquely holistic in attitude. The Doctor, in order to make a successful prescription must take into account all changes in the person since fertility was an issue(or before if unwell before) moods, dreams, sleep, being hot or cold and especially any emotional or physical trauma just before onset of the problem. So that, for example, a patient who suffered a grief, became introverted, chilly and woke with dreams of robbers would get a different medicine from one who was unwell since taking hormones with indifference and severe pms despite both patients having fertility issues of the same kind.

I have studied and practiced homeopathy now for some 20 years. Many cases have been resolved successfully. It is however important that patients first exclude the possibility of a problem requiring surgical intervention before seeking Homeopathic treatment. Once this has been established Homeopathy becomes a very safe and effective choice.
