Contraindications during pregnancy?Hello,
A homeopath ‘prescribed’ peganum Harmala to me for what I suspect to be emotional reasons, outside of pregnancy and Provided no info about it, so I naturally looked it up. I understand that it is likely ‘safe’ on a physiological level, because the dose is almost negligible in homeopathy, as it’s more the energetic properties. BUT - in my research.. if this plant is actually consumed in physical form, it’s been commonly used for abortion! My intuition is telling me not to take it. I realize that physiologically it’s likely ‘safe’ however - energetically - isn’t that a counterintuitive vibration to introduce to my body and my baby? I’m very uncomfortable discussing this with the homeopath because she has given me remedies in the past, with no explanation and has ignored my request previously when I asked about another remedy she gave me. Any insight would be so greatly appreciated. In your studies, have you come across any remedies that are contraindicated or even just not recommended during pregnancy? Such as with this situation? Thank you.

Well, this practitioner has had a previous history of providing very little transparency, as shown in previous visits, but my understanding is that it had to do with ‘fear of bodily autonomy’ while in a hospital setting (which I didn’t want) for birth and labor (due to the current western medicine paradigm at this time). I wanted a home birth, but couldn’t find a practitioner.
Originally they prescribed ‘lanthanides’ which I got no info on (once again) and so I looked it up, since I actually like to understand what I’m putting in body particularly at this time, regardless of some homeopaths’ opinions that any and all homeopathic remedies are ‘safe’ during pregnancy,)and the lanthanides actually resonated with me and made more sense, as it seemed they were there to help empower me (vs what I saw in the homeopathic description for peganum, which was odd, and furthermore its use in the physical form which is was my main concern).
She originally gave me the lanthanides for the symptoms and then changed her mind two days later, without any explanation as to why, and then gave me the peganum instead. She just leaves her remedies for patients to pick up when she’s not at the clinic. Like, ‘here just take this.’ But she’s never around to tell you why she chose what she chose and doesn’t invite you to meet in person, or cal you or email you when it comes time to pick up your remedy. Besides the original concern about the peganum, is this not odd behaviour? As a homeopath, do you not provide transparency with your patients to help them understand if they resonate with the remedy? Rather than try to be all ‘mysterious’ and quite frankly, controlling? I’m a holistic professional myself, with a lot of education and an extremely open mind, so this has become a red flag for me.
