I noticed that some people who had viewed my blog recently were wondering if it is safe to use homeopathy while breastfeeding. I think there were concerns about using homeopathic remedies in the pellet form as well as in the form of topical creams. Yes, it is safe to use homeopathy orally and topically when breastfeeding. In my post “Supporting Women through Caesarian Sections and Recovery”, I did mention it was safe to use homeopathy while breastfeeding.
I know breastfeeding mothers are very concerned about their diet, and don’t want to eat any foods that could affect their baby, especially foods that cause gas and colic in their baby. There are some western medications that are not safe to use when the mother is breastfeeding. This was probably discussed with the mother and her physician before, during and after the pregnancy. Using homeopathic remedies during pregnancy is also safe.
Homeopathy is very helpful for the health concerns that mothers and their children experience. Often, it is when a woman starts her family, that she turns to homeopathy for help with colds, coughs, earaches, stomachaches, colic, teething and other things that come up. I will have more about how homeopathy is helpful in these kinds of situations in further blogs.
