Ignatia in LM potency during pregnancy

Hi, I had an Indian homeopath work with me for about three months to determine the remedy I needed to treat OCD and depression. I had gotten off of my allopathic meds using her remedy suggestion. I was taking Ingatia LM2 (8-10 pellets in 8ounces of distilled water, then dosed as two drops in a cup of water, 1 teaspoon of that taken as needed). In the beginning, I took it almost daily, then fairly quickly, I needed it less and less, then eventually not at all, with the exception of the occasional need.

I'm sure you are wondering why I am even writing, aren't you? ha ha ha My question is this. I am pregnant and in my first trimester. I am starting to feel some signs of depression which I have been trying to overlook, but they are getting worse. Is it safe to use the same remedy as suggested for my depression previously. I made a new stock tonight and stabilized it with a teaspoon of alcohol. I am worried about post pardum depression too, so I want to keep this under control. Thanks for your help!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The best thing would be to contact the same homeopath and ask for his advice.

As far as I know, you should be starting with LM3 this time as I am assuming you do not have the old stock bottle. Homeopathic remedies , especially the LMs if used correcty, are safe to be taken during pregnancy.

I would love to contact her directly, but I would have to pay that homeopath for another 3 months of working with her and we just bought a new house, plus it's Christmas time, so I can't afford it right now.

I do still have the original stock bottle, but it appears to have something floating in it and I wasn't sure if it was moldy or something....?

She had me using the same potency over and over whenever I felt the symptoms arising.

She had you using the same potency but she must have made you give the bottle sucusssions before every dose. That made the potency rise slightly every time you took it.

Now that the old stock bottle has gone bad, the only way to start from a higher potency is to go to LM3.

If you are sure the symptoms are exactly the same , and Ignatia is the correct choice, I would definitely recommend starting with LM3. Acoording to me , 2 pellets are enough , you dont need so many pellets in 8 oz water.

Yes, she has me pound it 7 times, drop two to three drops of that into a small glass of distilled water, then take a teaspoon of that. I don't have an LM3 and don't even remember where I got this, so I will have to research it. Would it be ok to start using the LM2 now or not? Thanks so much for the quick replies!!

Oh and the symptoms, yes, fears of things, not enjoying the same activities I do normally, not wanting to get myself ready to do anything...all the same. I think she thought it to be my constitutional remedy. I can't remember for sure though.

It is not ok to start with LM2.

You can find LM3 it here

Chose pellet size 10, 2 dr, LM3 and then make a stock bottle with 2 pellets.

I would recommend starting with 4 poundings(sucussions) and raise the poundings to 7 if you dont see a response. Keep the dosing procedure and amount the same i.e. The one that worked for you in the past.

I ordered this last night and will make the new stock remedy as soon as I get it. Then I can post the results.

Thanks so much for your help!

So just out of curiosity...what happens if/when a person exhausts all the potencies of their constitutional remedy? What is the next step after that?

Hehe, you will spend a life time going to LM30 in steps 1.

Hopefully, it will not be needed for that long a period :)

Ha ha ha, ok - point well taken. I received my remedy tonight, made my stock and took my first dose with four sucussions. Since this was determined to be my constitutional remedy, is there any chance it could help with my pregnancy ailments? Just wishful thinking, ha ha.

It can definitely help with pregnancy ailments.

Just remember to take dose only 'when needed'.

Thiis might be weekly for you or every three days. You need to observe yourself and find that out.

Sameer.
