One of the most painful dreaded event in women’s life LABOR is a natural process to expel the full term baby in the womb. But, several physical & biological factors may alter the normal process giving rise to last minute or previously identified complication. This has given rise to the indiscriminate use of surgically assisted labor i.e., Caesarean section (also C-section, Cesarean section) a surgical procedure where incisions are made through a mother’s abdomen and uterus (hysterotomy) to deliver baby. This unnatural form of delivering a baby comes with a lot of hormonal problems, increased hospital stay, increased use of antibiotics.
Can Caesarean section be avoided?
According to a French double blind study, homeopathic medicine (Caulophyllum, Cimicifuga Racemosa, Arnica, Pulsatilla & Gelsemium) has been shown to shorten labor time and help prevent or minimize the possibility of a difficult birth if taken at the beginning of the ninth month daily. In the study, the pregnant women were selected regardless of age or number of deliveries. The analysis of 93 participants revealed that those women receiving homeopathic treated had an average reduced delivery time of 5.1 hours compared to the placebo group of 8.7 hours, and difficult labors were 11% for the homeopathic group compared to 40% for the placebo group.
Directions for Use:
Third Trimester last four week Protocol:
Week 37, 38, 39 & 40 and beyond, take homeopathic medicine daily.
Caulophyllum, Cimicifuga Racemosa, Arnica, Pulsatilla & Gelsemium in 5C potency 4pills thrice daily.
Dana Ullman MPH in his writings observes – John George, M.D., a Seattle obstetrician and gynecologist, utilizes homeopathic medicines in his practice and has found, “In many ways the medicines facilitate the childbirth process for the woman and the physician. The medicines make it all go a lot more smoothly.” Specifically, Dr. George notes, “The correctly prescribed homeopathic remedy given in preparation and anticipation of labor is observed to prepare the cervix for labor by facilitating and softening, thinning out, and dilating the cervix prior to the onset of real labor. The second observation is that the labor pattern of contractions tends to be more orderly and efficient in progressing the birth. Thirdly, the amount of pain experienced during labor is markedly reduced, greatly lessening the need for analgesics and anesthesia.” Read more…
