[I share this important post about mastitis by Joette Calabrese (with her permission) because we want you and your baby to thrive.]
In fact, when a woman had mastitis in 1798, she likely chose one of the remedies below, just like today’s modern mom.
Yes, the very same remedies that worked then, work today. Not unlike traditional foods, real medicine transcends centuries.
No chemical tinkerings, no shenanigans from the pharmaceutical industry.
Just simple, safe and efficacious.
Here are three main remedies to consider for mastitis.
- Belladonna 30
- Phytolacca 30
- Hepar sulph 6
Choosing the Remedy & the Dose for Mastitis
Belladonna is the remedy to think of when the breast is very red, hot, deeply painful (particularly when mom is bumped) and swollen. It can even be shiny from swelling. It may be accompanied by fever as well. This is what we call a Belladonna picture.
If this fits the description, Belladonna 30 is taken every 3-5 hours (4 pills or whatever is considered a dose on the container).
As with most homeopathic remedies for acute situations, the remedy is stopped as soon as significant improvement is seen.
If no improvement is noted after 5 doses, its time to consider another remedy.
Again, it should be noted that once the remedy has acted fully, it should be stopped.
Regardless of the symptoms, Hepar sulph 6 has a history of aiding the healing of mastitis if integrated into the schedule of either of the two other remedies twice daily.
That means it would be taken every 3-4 hours but on the off hours from the other single chosen remedy.
Not only has this method been shown to address even the most painful of breast infections, it may also uproot the propensity for another infection to ensue.
But, if one does, you’re set, because you have your strategy in place.
Homeopathic remedies used in this fashion are safe for mom and baby, inexpensive, easy to take and keeps moms off antibiotics and other undesirables.
Your Take Away
You can treat mastitis yourself. The ability to heal yourself and your family is a tradition that is as old as motherhood itself.
I hold that the ultimate female privilege is to become a mother, and our built in sense of duty should be accepted as powerful and palpable.
Join me in linking arms across the globe. One mother bonded to another in defense of our motherly right to raise our families in the fashion we deem decent.
No foods of commerce, no drugs of commerce, parent-driven child rearing.
That means just plain horse sense and homeopathy.
Please share this with mothers and grandmothers.
“All things are poison and nothing is without poison; only the dose makes a thing not a poison.” ~Swiss physician and chemist, Paracelsus
This 500-year-old principle of toxicology from the Swiss physician and chemist Paracelsus precisely describes the effects of belladonna. It sheds light on why this unusual plant can be both a deadly poison and a healing remedy. Belladonna has been used in homeopathy since its origins, dating to over 200 years ago. (source)
