The homeopathic fertility program offers a comprehensive and natural approach to male and female infertility. Homeopathic remedies help to support the body in creating the necessary conditions to achieve conception.
This homeopathic approach to fertility supports healthy ovulation, fertile mucus production, and endometrial lining in women while helping increase sperm count and improve sperm motility in men.
When it comes to infertility or difficulty in achieving conception, both male and female partners should be follow a natural approach during pre-conception. The new baby is made by the union of egg and sperm. Healthy sperm production as well as healthy ovulation is required in order to achieve a healthy pregnancy and baby.
Your body retains a memory of all preceding conditions like emotional, physical injuries, shock, past bacterial and viral infections, drug suppression, drug toxicity, food intolerance, and inherited weaknesses.
The role of the homeopathic remedy is to assist the body in the process of healing and repairing at every level: mental, emotional, and physical. The time necessary to promote healing and establish optimum health depends on the level of health at the starting point. This is why not everyone will respond the same way, but eventually everybody will improve and get well.
The homeopathic fertility protocol is based on each individual person's level of health and health issues. It involves taking one or two remedies each day, morning or night, on specific days of the menstrual cycle. Day 1 is the first day of the menstrual cycle. Please note that any spotting before the period belongs to the previous menstrual cycle.
Homeopathic medicine treats the entire person mind, body and soul. You should notice not only improvement in your physical symptoms, but also your overall health and mental wellbeing will improve. Your cycle will become more regular, you will experience less pre-menstrual tension, and your period will be less painful.
When taking homeopathic remedies, initially you may experience detox symptoms like increased bowel movements, sinus congestion, flu-like symptoms, desire to cry or increased desire to talk (mental release), nausea, headaches, insomnia, and fatigue.
This occurs because your body is releasing toxins that had built up after years of taking medical drugs, eating foods with additive, being exposed to pollution, etc. This period is transient and should only last for a short period of time. Not everyone experiences this, but if you do, do not be alarmed because it is normal and it will pass.
Not all fertility treatments are the same. Homeopathy is the most comprehensive and holistic system of healing available especially when used in conjunction with fertility charting and natural health. This is why many couple are choosing it over medical fertility treatments with successful results.
In general, it is always best to chose a natural approach first and avoid resorting to fertility drugs and assisted conception treatments too soon in the journey to pregnancy. If a couple is willing to take the time to research what natural and alternative medicine has to offer, will save time, money, and avoid painful procedures.
Not everyone is aware of the dangerous side effects that fertility drugs can pose on the mother and baby. Research studies conducted in Sweden and published in the journal of the American academy of paediatrics, show that children conceived using IFV have a higher risk of developing cancer.
For women, high doses of hormones used to help produce eggs could harm their health. In fact, IVF has higher risk of miscarrying, uterine cancer, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, secondary infertility, and other complications.
This homeopathic protocol was initially developed by Melbourne homeopath Liz Lalor in 1998. It has a success rate of over 80%. This fertility program has become internationally renowned with hundreds of homeopaths all over the world using this method with the same success rate.
This program should be followed for at least 4 months and you can try to get pregnant while on it. Your homeopath will be able to adjust this program based on your individual situation.
