Summmer Homeopathy News: Pregnancy to Travel

DrFeder.com - Official Website for Dr. Lauren Feder - Summmer Homeopathy News: Pregnancy to Travel Wednesday June 25, 2014 The Complete Guide to a Healthy, Natural PregnancyNatural Pregnancy is the perfect resource for expectant parents; whether you choose to opt for an all-natural birth, or are looking to combine conventional treatments with homeopathy and holistic medicine, Natural Pregnancy is the all-in-one reference to keep your pregnancy simple and safe.Listen to a Free Teleconference:Excerpts from Dr. Feder's Natural Pregnancy bookOverdue: Natural Approach to Inducing Labor (Read full article)Midwife Ina May Gaskin writes, “According to the midwifery model of care, women’s bodies can generally be trusted to go into spontaneous labor.” Although I am in favor of natural childbirth and letting Mother Nature take her course, I realize there are times when a woman may need assistance. Sometimes practitioners may suggest more natural ways to start labor. Be sure to discuss this with your practitioner before beginning. If your practitioner feels the need to induce, consider the following natural approaches ahead of time. Home Treatment • Nipple stimulation in late pregnancy encourages the release of oxytocin, the same hormone that causes uterine contractions in labor. • Sexual intercourse is another way to induce labor, in that a man’s semen provides a concentrated source of prostaglandins. • Walking: keep moving, but avoid overexertion. • Castor oil is derived from the castor bean seed and has been used historically since the ancient Egyptians for such treatments as on skin and hair, and as a laxative. Known for its effects as a strong stimulant laxative, it has been used for generations to induce labor. • Acupuncture and acupressure have been used for centuries. • Seek out chiropractic care, osteopathy, or cranial sacral therapy with a practitioner who is trained in pregnancy treatments. • Evening primrose oil is used by some midwives to ripen the cervix.• Eat pineapple, vinegar, and spicy foods. In Los Angeles, many women frequent a restaurant known for its special balsamic vinaigrette in their pregnancy salad to help jump-start labor contractions in overdue moms.• Drink Red Raspberry Leaf Tea.Homeopathic Medicines Take each homeopathic medicine daily. Take 3 pellets under the tongue, separated by at least 30 minutes apart. • Arnica 12C or 30C   • Caulophyllum 12C or 30C • Cimicifuga 12C or 30C • Gelsemium 12C or 30C • Pulsatilla 12C or 30C Homeopathy and Summer TravelThe summer is now upon us which is often associated with fun, sun, and travel.  I am often asked about natural medicines and home remedies to have on hand during the summer and especially to bring on the trip for prevention or just in case someone gets sick. •Digestive Upsets- Tummy bugs often come with the unpleasant symptoms of  vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. The most common concern amongst travelers is digestive complaints, such as traveler’s diarrhea.  My family and I travel to Mexico frequently and have found my arsenal of homeopathy and natural medicines to be invaluable.  In addition, to avoiding raw foods, salads, and ice, we take the following routinely  as a prevention;Colloidal silver has natural antibiotic, antiviral propertiesProbiotics: Healthy bacteria which are important for the gutArsenicum album: homeopathic remedy for traveler’s diarrhea. Colds and Stuffed Nose- Catching a chill on a late summer afternoon following a day of sun and fun can lead to colds with runny noses and congestion.   When possible avoid extreme temperature changes of heat outside and cold air conditioning inside. Onion slices on a plate by the bed help clear sinuses during the night.Allium cepa: homeopathic remedy for early colds and watery runny nosesVitamin C, Echinacea and other immune boosters can speed the healing process. Flu Bug– Flu symptoms can also come in the summer months. Complete with body aches, fever, runny nose, and cough, the summer flu bug can put a damper on outdoor playtime.  In addition to rest, natural teas and broths consider taking the following:Oscillococcinum is a homeopathic medicine to be taken at the first sign of a flu. Colloidal Silver contains natural antibiotic, antiviral propertiesProbiotics: Healthy bacteria which are important for the gutAccidents: Bumps, bruises and other types of trauma are a fact of life. As a busy mother of boys, I know to expect complaints after a soccer match to a day at the beach. Arnica montana (Arnica) is the homeopathic first line  treatment for injuries – big and small.   Arnica comes as chewable tablets to topical gels and creams.  Bee Sting, Insect Bites, Tick Bites:  Summer is about being outside, and having to share the space with mother nature also means more insect stings and bites.   I use the following natural medicines:Apis mellifica is a homeopathic medicine known for the effects of a bee's sting. Ledum palustre is well-known as an acute homeopathic for bites, stings and wounds. Both are available in tablet and topical forms.Tick Bite Balance II helps the body respond after a tick has bitten you (your child) or your animals. Following a tick bite, also consult your practitioner. On Being Tongue-TiedWhen my son, Etienne, was born in 1993, he was tongue tied.  At the time I did not think much of it, as I was able to successfully breastfeed, and all seemed fine.  So I thought.  Now my son is a young adult, and his dentist noted that his teeth were crowded and his palate (the arch of the mouth) narrow.   He was referred to Joy Moeller, an orofacial myologist who explained to us that If he did not receive any treatment he would need braces, develop breathing and snoring problems (sleep apnea), and this would all lead to poor posture resulting in neck and back pain as he got older.  That was a lot of information in one visit!  Within a short amount of time, he began to work with Joy and her colleague Samantha, and also underwent a procedure. Thanks to their efforts and expertise, he is on the road to improved health.   Being tongue tied means  the  motion of the tongue is restricted due to a shortening or tightening of the band of tissue (frenulum) that connects the bottom of the tongue to the floor of the mouth.  In the olden days, midwives kept their nails sharpened to easily clip this at birth.   Known as ankyloglossia, it can lead to difficulties breastfeeding in the newborn, and  problems later on. The normal resting position of the tongue is on the palate.  In addition, to being a source of comfort, the tongue on the palate begins to ‘shape’ and widen the mouth, jaw, and even facial features.  This allows for more room for the teeth (including wisdom teeth).  A tightened tongue which is not able to rest on the palate causes the arch to become narrow and collapse which leads to crowding of the teeth,  speech problems, breathing problems, such as sleep apnea in adults. In order to try to breathe easier, the body compensates by jutting out the chin, leading to poor posture and neck and back pain.  Conditions that lead to mouth breathing and sleep apnea can be due to other conditions as well, such as enlarged tonsils and adenoids.  Therapists like Joy Moeller, work with patients (both young and old) to give them exercises for the tongue, mouth, jaw and face. For patients who are tongue-tied, clipping of the tongue is recommended.  For babies this is a simple (very simple)  procedure known as a frenotomy,  no medication is needed.  For older children and adults, the clipping is known as a frenulectomy (tongue-tie surgery). The latter is a procedure which requires local anesthesia, as well as oral exercises from a trained oral mycologist to help re-train the tongue and mouth.  From this experience, I am recommending that all babies who are tongue-tied have the simple procedure (frenotomy) to get on the right path for breastfeeding and beyond.   I refer many children and adults to oral myologists for evaluation and treatment of many conditions for breathing problems as well as thumb sucking, etc.  In addition, I am encouraging parents to avoid the overuse of pacifiers, bottles, or sippy cups. As a result of my own experience, I trained with breastfeeding expert Kitty Frantz and now offer tongue-tie release (frenotomy) in the office for newborns.
