Homeopathy during pregnancy and breastfeeding


I am 29 yrs of age and developed an anal fissure during delivery. I struggled with intense pain and bleeding for 4 months before I underwent sphinctertomy and am struggling with the post operative pain. I want to know if homeopathy is safe during breatfeeding. I really dont want to rely on medicines as I dont want to pass on toxins to my baby.Please advice.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily will help to alleviate your pain which you state you have suffered for the last 4 months so very unnecessarily.

It is absolutely safe in use and will not affect your baby in any way.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

Thanks for the suggestion. Will try it and post my reply.

May I know when the doses need to be taken? Also, should it be taken before or after meals? Sorry, this is the first time I am trying homeopathy so not quite sure about how to take it.

Homeopathic remedies are best taken an hour before meals.

I could not find Arnica 30c in the Ethanol pack instead got it as pellets. How many pellets do I use to make the Wet dose?

shyveronster last decade
You may insert 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of water from which you have poured out about 3cm from the top to provide some air space.

I do hope that you will continue to search for the Arnica in the Ethanol base which you can get from any Homeopathic Pharmacy if you live in India.

Thanks again.

Yes, I am looking for the remedy in Ethanol base and amazingly still cannot find it. I live in Bangalore and wonder where to look for it.

I still can't believe but I have to admit that my pain has considerably reduced !!!I can now go back to playing with my baby which was so hard in the last few months. I have stopped all medication and hoping to be completely pain free very soon.

Thanks so much...

P.S. I was able to find the remedy in ethanol base right here in Bangalore.

'I have stopped all medication and hoping to be completely pain free very soon.'

Do I understand that you did not use the Arnica I prescribed for you as you were cured by the time you found it?
Joe De Livera last decade
Oh no....Initially I did not find Arnica in ethanol base so had to make the wet dose using pellets. Then, started using the Arnica in ethanol base for the last 3 days. So, its been a week since I actually started taking Arnica and I have been feeling better over the last 2 days.

I stopped all medication on starting Arnica so I guess Arnica did the trick.

Thank you for your confirmation that it was the Arnica that helped you to recover from the post operative pain. This gives me more reason to justify my qualifying Arnica as a Miracle Remedy.

Continue with the Arnica and when you feel better reduce the dosage down to just one cap full daily.

I seem to be experiencing pain when the stools are hard. Can you prescribe a stool softner as this might further help in the healing process. Again this should be something that would not pass through my breast milk and affect my baby.

Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tabets taken 2-3 times daily should help you to overcoms your Constipation.

The pain from the hemorhoids is back. Seems like I developed a new fissure as well and the pain is bad again.

Please help.

You will have to consult your gynecologist to ascertain what your problem is. You will appreciate that on a Forum like the ABC it is not possible to diagnose a problem.

When you have more information on your problem, I shall then advise you.
