Restore Fertility with Homeopathy

How Homeopathy Can Help Women Suffering from Infertility

In order to restore fertility more and more women seek homeopathic medicine. Female causes of infertility can be many but mostly are of two kinds: structural abnormalities and hormonal imbalances.

The first kind can be helped with homeopathic medicine but not all cases will resolve in a pregnancy, the second type can definitely be helped by homeopathy and women with hormonal imbalances restore fertility within a few cycles leading usually to healthy pregnancies.

Obviously everyone is different, so specific homeopathic treatment is advised to restore fertility.

During homeopathic treatment to restore fertility many aspects of your menstrual cycle are taken into consideration, for example the lengths of your cycle is very important, the type of menstrual bleeding (bright red, clotted), the premenstrual discomforts like cravings, headaches, lower back pain, pelvic pain, etc.

The mental and emotional changes that women experience during the premenstrual period should also be investigated by a homeopathic practitioner to help deal with hormonal fluctuations and imbalances.

Homeopathic medicine can help restore fertility when followed in conjunction with a healthy diet low in animal fats and high in fiber from legumes, fruits and vegetables.

Fibroids and Polyps

The formation of fibroids, which are benign growth of the muscles of the uterine cavity, can be a physical obstacle to the implantation of the fertilized egg and to the development of the embryo, thus preventing pregnancy.

Fibroids are caused by sudden rise in estrogen levels, so creating hormonal balance is an important factor in their treatment. Here are some useful homeopathic remedies.

When the ovaries have exhausted their energy after undergoing a series of infertility treatments this remedy can help restore fertility. It can also help re-start a natural menstrual cycle after years of birth control pill use and excess hormones as a result of estrogen dominance syndrome.

I first heard about this remedy while taking my course in women's health and homeopathy developed by homeopath Melissa Assilem with the British Institute of Homeopathy. The remedy is available at Helios Homeopathic Pharmacy.

It should be taken in small doses in order to regulate a woman's cycle and it will bring on the period especially in cases of policystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis or where the uterine lining is overstimulated by excessive estrogen. According to Melissa Assilem, an optimum time to give Folliculinum is on the tenth to fourteenth day of the cycle.

Also different potency work in quite different ways: 3X or 4C stimulates and can bring on menstruation, the 7C is a balancer, and the 9C is a menstrual retardant, where there may be very frequent periods. This remedy is part of the Homeopathic Fertility Program and helps restore fertility in women.
