Homeopathic remedies and BreastfeedingHi,
I have a 9 month old baby that I'm breastfeeding and I'm concerned about taking homeopathic remedies. Does anyone have any information of this? I know the actual remedies are very diluted, but wanted to be sure before I take any.
Thank you so much!

A substance used to make a homeopathic remedy is diluted and "pounded" (succus) between dilutions that cause the remedy to become active.
The number of dilutions are so great that NONE of the original substance is left in the liquid remedy.
Remedies begin with a crude decoction. After a time it is strained carefully and this is the Mother Tincture. This is the origional substance and is what the remedy is prepared from.
Then in an X remedy this means 1 part to 9 parts. C means centemeters. 1 part to 100 parts. If the remedy is 30C this is 100 times 30. A few drops of MT and succus between each dilution. Each time a new bottle of liquid with a few drops of the previous dilution and when done 3000 times, it is way beyond what we normally understand as dilution. At this stage there is no actual substance left.
Years ago we thought of it as a "vibration." Today it has been proven in both France and Korea that it is the "memory left in the water."
Using any means in today's technology, no remedy can be named in a bottle without a label. Science has not progressed this far.
ANY remedy could be eaten by anyone and there will be no adverse conditions. The remedy would have to match the needs of that particular person, and even then there may not be any noticable responses. When there is an increase in symptoms, this is a good sign the remedy was well chosen.
There have been two mothers nursing and taking remedies on this forum for the past month and more. They have been successful and the babies are doing well.
One was a baby with thrush. The other was more lengthy and several conditions.
Perhaps they are reading and would like to speak to you about this.

I saw your post and just want to let you know that I have been using homeopathy for several months now and my daughter is almost one year old and still nursing. I feel the remedies are safe and have taken them for myself as well as given them to my daughter.
And thanks to homeopathy and Sabra's help, my son who was on the nebulizer for bronchiolitis twice last year has not had more than a runny nose and cough this year. It has not gotten scary at all and my husband and I are so thankful we found something that is working. I don't think I will use other methods again without trying homeopathy first. I hope this is helpful to you in your decision to use homeopathy.
