Dosage for Induction – Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum

One of the primary rules of homeopathic medicine is the idea of the minimum dose.  This means you take the smallest possible amount to set into motion the reaction you are seeking in your body.  In terms of induction of labour this means you take two pellets one time of the remedy indicated and wait.  If labour is going to begin it will start within 24 hours.  This might mean:

  • loose bowels
  • cramping
  • achy back
  • bloody show
  • spontaneous rupture of membranes
  • active labour

Your body will decide what being in labour looks like for you and the remedy will just stimulate that action.  Once you have a shift just wait, you may need to take the remedy again if things slow down but usually once things are in motion it will continue.  If Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum are the remedies you would like to try then take one dose of each of them in a 15C or 30C potency and wait.  These remedies usually work best if there is already some movement of towards labour.  They create contractions that have an impact in softening and dilating your cervix.  If Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum do not act it is because they are either the wrong remedies for you or your baby simply is not ready yet.  For more specific information on remedies for homeopathic induction please visit my website at :
