There are several homeopathic remedies that have been used for centuries to help mothers with the health problems that come up related to hormone changes of pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. There is one remedy that stands out as being especially useful-- Sepia.
Sepia is a homeopathic remedy that is made from the ink of the cuttlefish. It can help moms with many of the problems we deal with, including fatigue, irritability, mood swings, hot flashes, and menstrual cramps.
Sepia works as all homeopathic remedies do -- by stimulating the body's natural healing processes. With Sepia, there may be a sense being out of balance and in a state of collapse. There may be constipation, a prolapsed uterus, or other signs that the body is tired and not working well after childbirth or with hormonal changes.
Here are some of the benefits of Sepia for moms:
Hormonal imbalances: Sepia is an excellent remedy for hormonal imbalances, including PMS and those that occur during menopause. It can help with irregular cycles and reduce symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, and even menstrual cramps. Morning sickness can be helped by Sepia if the symptoms fit. It also helps women who develop problems after being on birth control pills.
Postpartum depression: Sepia can be an effective remedy for postpartum depression. It can help to improve mood and energy levels and reduce feelings of sadness and anxiety. With this remedy, there may be a sense of dullness and not caring from being too tired. Many moms can benefit from a dose of Sepia after childbirth!
Fatigue: Sepia is well known for reducing fatigue and improving energy levels as well as mood and libido. It’s a fantastic remedy for overwhelmed, exhausted moms who are struggling to keep up with the demands of motherhood. When we need Sepia, we may be easily irritated by our families and not want to be touched.
Hormonal headaches: Sepia can help with headaches, especially if they are over the left eye. are Headaches associated with Sepia tend to be left- sided or with menopause or PMS.
