Homeopathy is a system of healing developed in Germany by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800s. His research in this field began when he discovered that minute dilutions of natural substances from plants, minerals, and animals could cause certain physical and emotional disease like symptoms in humans .

However, when these same weakened substances were given to patients already suffering from the very conditions that the substances were known to cause, the symptoms disappeared, and the patients became well again.

When it comes to medicine, the traditional notion has always been that the higher the dosage, the greater its effect. In homeopathic medicine, just the opposite is true. Odd as it may seem, the more a homeopathic substance is diluted, the greater its potency.

Hahnemann concluded that these diluted substances (which he later formulated into homeopathic remedies) could target specific symptoms of an illness by stimulating the body’s natural healing response to cure them.

This led Hahnemann to the observatiOn that “like cures like.” In other words, a substance that in large doses produces the symptoms of an illness, in very minute doses, actually cures it. This phenomenon is called the Law of Similars.

The conventional medical establishment has often questioned the authenticity of homeopathy, whose principles seen to be completely opposite to those of traditional medicine. Probably one of the biggest differences lies in the dosage size of prescribed treatments.

Homeopathic medicine is prescribed in minute doses, the power of which is believed to come from vibratory energy. In physics, vibratory energy is a means of storing energy. All matter, be it solid, liquid, or gas, can store energy in its molecules, and reradiate it at a later time.

Therefore, when a mineral, plant, or animal substance is placed in water and shaken, the water molecules absorb the vibratory energy of the material substance, and thus, its healing abilities. Those who practice homeopathy believe it is a healing  process that not only alleviates symptoms, but also reestablishes the body’s internal order physical, mental, and emotional.

This school of medicine has enjoyed much support in Europe since the late 1800s. Recently, it has seen a rise in popularity in the United States as well. When homeopaths prescribe remedies to women with infertility problems, they focus not only on physical symptoms but on emotional symptoms as well.

A homeopath considers the entire “constitutional state” of the patient. For instance, an infertility patient might display physical signs that include heavy menstrual bleeding, tender breasts, and scant or irregular periods. Emotional signs may include depression, fear, and anxiety According to the patient’s symptoms, the homeopath will prescribe a number of remedies that are known to induce these exact conditions (or symptoms).

Generally, homeopaths will prescribe a certain dosage for two to three weeks, at which point, the symptoms should begin to subside and then disappear. It is imperative that a professional homeopath or naturopath be consulted prior to taking homeopathic treatments.

To begin with, proper diagnosis is important. Plus, there are many different homeopathic remedies that can be used to treat infertility, and only a trained specialist can determine the most appropriate types for an individual’s particular needs. A specialist is also necessary for determining proper dosages.

The following homeopathic remedies have been effective in treating  infertility, including, but not limited to, hormone imbalances, stress, anxiety  and even unexplained infertility (infertility that has no medical explanation).

The physical symptoms that a homeopath looks for prior to prescribing remedies for infertile patients include irregular periods, frequent miscarriages, cramping, and heavy bleeding. Homeopaths also consider such conditions as fatigue, depression, lethargy, and anxiety in determining which homeopathic remedy is best suited for the patient.
