A 44-year-old female asked:

can homeopathy help re lactation ?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
Yes, it can: There are over 70 homeopathic remedies known to improve lactation, when the mother perceives her baby isn't getting enough milk. Some of the more common ones include agnus castis, pulsatilla, and asafoetida. An experienced classical homeopath can choose the best one for you by reviewing your individual case and symptoms -- homeopathy is not a "take this remedy for that problem" method.
Dr. J. Yusuf Erskine

Yes: There are good remedies to assist with lactation.

How can I find a lactation consultant?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Bert Mandelbaum
Pediatrics 24 years experience
Ask your doctor: Nursing is one of the most important things you can do for your infant, but often it's much harder than anticipated. Unfortunately, the first few weeks are often the hardest and many new mothers get frustrated during this time. Asking your physician (ob and pediatrician) for advice and for recommendations on a lactation consultant might be all you need to get back on track.

Trigeminal Neuralgia: Is challenging diagnosis to live with. Allopathic treatment is generally only palliative. A well chosen homeopathic remedy has helped immensely; with patient testimonies available.

Sinus rinses: Sinus rinses (carefully measured and balanced) are helpful for many sinus problems, including sinusits. In case of a true bacterial sinusitis, antibiotics are certainly recommended.

How does water homeopathy work?

Dr. Randy Baker

Please clarify: I'm a homeopath but am not sure what you mean by "water homeopathy." most homeopathic remedies are sold as pellets, but they can be dissolved in water.One advantage of using remedies this way is their potency can be adjusted further by shaking and diluting.Many md's believe homeopathy doesn't work. I have no doubt it works, but i don't think anyone knows exactly how it works, despite many theories!
A 44-year-old member asked:

Alternative medicines like homeopathy for meningioma?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
Meningioma: Meningioma is usually a slow-growing, benign tumor of the protective coverings of the brain/spinal cord. They can be found incidentally on MRI scans -- and unless pressing on other structures, they're usually observed rather than operated upon. I do know of cases where homeopathy has seemed to resolve such tumors. It requires astute, complete casetaking by a skilled professional homeopath.
