FREE Homeopathic Induction

I offer free homeopathic inductions to anyone who wants to use this gentle method of encouraging labour.  I will talk to you about your pregnancy and your plans for the birth and then will arrive at a remedy suggestion.  You will have to find a place to buy the remedy.

Four steps to a gentle birth…

How you are born is a part of who you are.  If you are able to create the best possible birth experience for both you and your baby it will impact both of your lives forever.  How to set yourself up for a positive birth?

blkwhite-new-babe

  • Find Care Providers that you love.
  • Give birth in an environment that feels safe.
  • Create the time and space to greet your baby at the pace that  feels right for your family.
  • Build support postpartum to spend quiet, slow, meaningful time with your baby.

This baby’s face is filled with quiet wonder and I would love to see the world responding to these new people with the respect and intelligence they deserve.

What if the Postpartum Blues were a good thing?

What if all postpartum feelings were normal?

What if your own self is taking advantage of this gap that opens up when you have a baby?

You are vulnerable, open, aware and alive postpartum.  Doesn’t it make sense that information would be available to you in a new way?

Using homeopathy to offer yourself love and support postpartum means the messages will be delivered, not numbed out or pretended away.  Those messages from our own selves can be processed, felt, truly felt and then integrated.

All with a newborn by your side to assist you on keeping your focus on what is vital, alive and forward moving.

Consider this as a possibility.

love

Remedies for the SUN !

bikini-jumpers

Stock up on Belladonna 1M for heat stroke, Phosphoric Acid 200C for dehydration and Nat. mur 200C for headaches and fever blisters from the sun.

Belladonna 1M

this is a remedy for the following symptoms;

  • throbbing headache
  • fever
  • flushed, dark red face
  • dry heat
  • comes on suddenly and intensely (and will leave the same way)
  • radiating heat from head and core
  • glazed eyes
  • thirsty for lemonade
  • symptoms get worse at 3:00 pm – meaning usually the person feels hotter
  • doesn’t want to be moved or touched
  • overexposure to sun or stimulation

2 pellets, wait and observe in a 1:10 time frame.  If the person has been feeling that way for 60 min then within 6 min. you should see a shift.  The individual does not have to have every symptom, but the general themes of heat, redness and intensity should match.

Phosphoric Acid 200C

This is a remedy to treat dehydration or any loss of bodily fluids.  For example, a woman nursing and being in the sun may result in dehydration as there are extra demands on her fluid levels from both her own body and her baby’s body.  A Phosphoric acid picture may also arise from:

  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • blood loss
  • sweating
  • nursing

When a person is in a Phosphoric Acid state they are :

  • emotionally flat, apathetic
  • indifferent, wants to ignore everything happening
  • ailments from grief, emotional turmoil, loss of fluids
  • headache – as if there was a weight pressing on head
  • hair loss
  • craving for fruit, fruit juice and carbonated water.

Natrum Muriaticum 200C and tissue salts

Natrum Muriaticum is a remedy that generally does not prefer to sit out in the sun.  When this natural guidance is not followed then a Nat mur person will have a reaction to an excessive amount of sun.

  • cold sores with or after sunburn
  • headaches from the sun, must wear hat and dark glasses
  • extremely thirsty for cold water
  • nat mur tissue salts are helpful to restore the water/salt balance after dehydration.

Apis ~like a bee sting

apis

Apis 200C is a brilliant remedy to have in your home.  It is incredibly useful for challenges such as:

  • swelling – allergic reactions, bug bites,  pregnancy induced or emotional responses to crying – especially of the face and eyes
  • jealousy – PMS time & PREGNANCY is the PEAK!
  • hives – from allergic reactions, stress, upset, heat
  • eruptions with swelling, heat and itch
  • right-sided affections
  • bug bites of any kind (including bee stings) that swell, turn red, itch and sting.
  • hives with asthma
  • clumsy during PMS
  • chatty, busy and industrious
  • warm-blooded – better from application of cool water
  • no thirst
  • edema in pregnancy, especially in the immediate postpartum – any location in the body.  Will cause the woman to sweat and pee the excess fluid away.

To complement Apis 200C use Nat mur 6X tissue salts.  This will encourage the restoration of the water/salt balance in the body.

The Homeopathic Midwife

On February 1st I will open registration for The Homeopathic Midwife, an online professional training program in Homeopathy for Midwives.  On the first of each month a new session will begin.  If you would like to be put on the list for the program please email me and I will notify you as soon as registration opens.

The focus of The Homeopathic Midwife is experiential learning, figuring out how to use homeopathic remedies during pregnancy, labour and postpartum. It is appropriate for anyone with a desire to learn. The program is specifically relevant for Midwives and Midwifery students. Homeopathy students, Doulas and Naturopathic Doctors may also find this information beneficial if they are attending births in this capacity. The program is divided into five modules and is paced to occur over a five month period of time.

You will receive:

  • written and audio versions of the materials
  • email access to consult with Piper Martin throughout the five months of your program
  • a flexible schedule of Skype calls to discuss  and improve comprehension through case conferences.
  • As you finish each section you will be asked to complete a clinical assignment to assess your assimilation of the material. The completion of these segments will result in a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the program. Please note that these assignments are experiential and practical.

The fee for this progam is 1500.00 CDN funds.

A brief outline of the program is as follows:
